A Washington’s Most Wanted fugitive alert for an extremely dangerous convicted rapist who cut off his GPS tracker Monday.
Ronald Clayton, 41, was released from prison in Connell on Saturday after he was sentenced to 24 months for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.
He told authorities he planned to stay at the Tacoma Rescue Mission but has not shown up.
“We have no idea where he is. He’s been in prison for many, many years. We don’t know if he can even conform or act okay in society.”
“This is somebody that needs to get picked up and like I always say, don’t try to approach him. Let the police do their job,” said Pierce County Sheriff’s Det. Ed Troyer.
