Sex Offender Sought by U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force

**Update: William Gagnon turned himself in to the
Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on 12/10/13**

Concord, NH – The U.S. Marshals – NH Joint Fugitive Task Force is seeking the public’s assistance in locating fugitive sex offender William Gagnon, age 40, whose last known address was in Manchester NH. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and the Manchester Police Department have both requested the assistance of the fugitive task force in an effort to locate and arrest Gagnon. Gagnon is currently being sought on two outstanding arrest warrants, including one for failure to maintain his sex offender registration, as well as a second warrant issued by the Hillsborough County Superior Court for probation violations in connection with a prior conviction and sentence for the same offense of failing to maintain his sex offender registration. Gagnon was previously featured as a U.S. Marshal’s – Fugitive of the Week in 2010 on his first sex offender registration violation.

Gagnon is required to register as a sex offender due to convictions in 1996 in Essex County Superior Court (Mass.) for two counts of felonious sexual assault on a victim that was age 13 or older and under age 16, with an age difference of more than four years; and aggravated felonious sexual assault on a victim under the age of 13.

William Gagnon is a white male, 6’01”, 240 pounds, Brown hair, and Brown eyes. Gagnon has a tattoo on his right shoulder of Speedy Gonzalez and the initials “JED” on his right arm. Gagnon has a noticeable scar on his chin and on his right knee.

Gagnon could be hiding anywhere in the southern NH and Northern Massachusetts area. We are hopeful that someone will provide information as to the location of Gagnon. If you know of the whereabouts or have observed a person that resembles Gagnon, please contact the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in New Hampshire at (603) 225-1632, WEB-TIP, or your local police.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 5,523 arrests. These arrests have ranged in seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders, probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses.

Nationally the United States Marshals Service fugitive programs are carried out with local law enforcement in 94 district offices, 85 local fugitive task forces, 7 regional task forces, as well as a growing network of offices in foreign countries.
