The body of a former Webster City man who was wanted for the rape of a nine year old girl at gunpoint in Florida was discovered early yesterday morning south of Stratford in southern Hamilton county. Authorities discovered the body of 43-year-old Kevin Carroll Bordwell shortly after three yesterday morning. He died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Bordwel has been the subject of a nationwide manhunt after allegedly assaulting the girl on Tuesday in Englewood, Florida. The Charlotte County, Florida Sheriff’s Department reported that he knew his alleged victim. Bordwell graduated from Webster City High School in 1984. He recently moved to Florida.
Bordwell apparently parked his car at his mother’s home in Stratford, then walked about two miles to the intersection where his body was found by sheriff’s deputies. Bordwell had been wanted on a Florida warrant for charges of Capital Sexual Battery, Burglary with Battery and Armed Burglary.
