ARRESTED: 2 men who failed to register as a sex offender, both persons of interest in missing woman case
EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) - Two men who failed to register as a sex offender in El Paso County were recently arrested in Kentucky.
11 News has featured the wanted pair before; they’ve been on the run for several years. The two are also persons of interest in the case of a missing woman in Nicholas County, Kentucky. Brendan Camous was booked on Sept. 17 and is currently being held without bond. Clinton Peterson was booked the same day and is also being held without bond. It isn’t clear how authorities were able to track them down.
The case of a missing person they could be tied to is the 2016 disappearance of a woman in Nicholas County, Kentucky. Lori Feltz, 58, went for a short walk in Kentucky the day after Christmas in 2016. She never made it to her destination. Her family says she is mentally challenged and takes medicine daily for seizures. According to court documents, a huge search party was launched after Feltz went missing, and during that search, a Kentucky deputy said he found Camous and Peterson in a shack on a neighboring property. He did not realize they were wanted for failing to register. When the police came back with a search warrant, the men were gone.
The court documents say Peterson’s mother owned the property near where the woman went missing. She was reportedly in talks with prosecutors to have excavators search her land for the woman’s body, but that never happened.
