Elyria man on U.S. Marshal’s wanted sex offender list

Dwayne Taylor offender.jpgAn Elyria man is on a list of the top eight sex offenders wanted by the U.S. Marshals Task Force.

U.S. Marshal Peter J. Elliott announced the most-wanted sex offender list called the Agonizing 8. The list has the most-wanted sex offenders sought by the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force.

Elliot said the fugitives were named the Agonizing 8 because of the “great physical or mental pain” the offenders have caused their victims, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshals.

The Elyria-area fugitive, Dwayne Taylor, is wanted for failure to register as a sex offender and for weapons offenses. When he was convicted of sexual battery, he was required to register.

Taylor is believed to be in the Elyria or Cleveland area, according to the task force.

    If they would execute them the world would be a safer place. All these murderers and rapists should be immediately executed. If there is a 100% no doubts about the crime they’ve done execute if they admit what they’ve done execute. There’s no place in this world for these dirt balls.

    To ALL who don’t know the situation my brother was 17 and the woman was 24. She got caught cheating and wanted to scream rape. Hes not what these people are making him out to be. People need to know both sides of the story before they’re quick to judge someone.

      Is this the same Dwayne Taylor who was charged for possession of crack, marijuana,
      cocaine, theft, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, carrying a concealed
      weapon, receiving stolen property, burglary, assault, tampering with records, illegal
      use of food stamps, OVI, criminal damaging, another burglary and aggravated
      robbery from 2002 thru 2013?
      They all have the same birthdate

        couldn’t be the same guy..above guy was falsely accused and I am sure is a upstanding citizen

        • Joe Smith

          Yep, you are right, the same birthdate was just a coincidence. At least I asked instead of accused …….sigh

          Have a great day Denise

            Into drugs maybe, but a sexual predator is not who he is!

          • Joe Smith

            Yep, a person who did all of the above sure wouldn’t commit sexual battery. Battery can be as simple as touching someone in their privates without their permission.

            Should he be on the most wanted list for battery? Maybe a little over reaction I would say

    • Mike Rush

      I’m sure he didn’t do nuffin… At 17, was he an aspiring rapper?? Just turning his life around ??

  • Miss Mary

    I knew him very well, this surprises me greatly that he would be top 8! He is one of the sweetest boys I ever knew. There must be some misconstrued information! Praying for you Dwayne
