The United States Marshals are asking for the public’s help in finding a wanted man. Deputy Michael Powell says they’re looking for an 80-year-old Iowa man, Thomas McCabe, who’s wanted in far southern Texas. Powell says McCabe was indicted for negligent homicide after he was involved in a fatal car-pedestrian accident. Prosecutors charged McCabe was the driver of the vehicle and told him to appear before a Texas court but he failed to do so.
The fatal car-pedestrian accident was last November, and when he didn’t show up for trial in January, a warrant was issued for McCabe’s arrest. Texas authorities asked the U.S. Marshals, the Polk County Sheriff’s office and a fugitive task force to help try and find him. The Marshall in Iowa have been asked for help by Texas authorities, since he has a former address in the Des Moines suburb of Grimes.
They interviewed some acquaintances but didn’t find him there. If anybody has information on his whereabouts somewhere else in the country, the Iowa investigators would be happy to receive it, and pass on the tip to Texas authorities. Cameron County, where the incident took place, is far south past the town of Corpus Christi. Check out details and the other “most wanted” people on the Iowa U.S. Marshals website.
