Tennessee Man Wanted for Rape of a Child Captured by U.S. Marshals in Kentucky
For Immediate Release
Carroll County, TN – Damian Daniel Campos, 20, who was wanted by the Carroll County, Tennessee Sheriff’s Office for multiple counts of Rape of a Child and Aggravated Sexual Battery was captured yesterday in Kentucky after a joint investigation by U.S. Marshals in Western Tennessee and Kentucky.
On September 9, 2022, a bench warrant for Campos’ arrest was issued out of Carroll County after a grand jury indicted him for three counts of Rape of a Child and one count of Aggravated Sexual Battery. The U.S. Marshals Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force in Jackson, Tennessee, adopted the case and launched an investigation to locate and apprehend Campos.
On February 21, 2023, Task Force investigators developed information Campos was residing with a family member in Lexington, Kentucky. The Two Rivers Task Force referred the case to the U.S. Marshals Central Kentucky Fugitive Task Force.
On March 6, 2023, Marshals investigated several leads and tracked down an associate of Campos who was picking him up in a vehicle. Task Force Deputies initiated a vehicle stop, and Campos was taken into custody without incident. He will be extradited back to Tennessee to face charges.
“We thank the U.S. Marshals Task Force in Kentucky for assisting us in the relentless pursuit of an alleged child sexual predator,” said U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller, Western District of Tennessee.
The U.S. Marshals Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force is a multi-agency task force within Western Tennessee.
