West Virginia State Police say a wanted Kanawha County man has turned himself in.
Troopers say Kenneth R. Fraker, 56, of Eskdale, turned himself into law enforcement in Kanawha County on Wednesday.
Colonel C. R. “Jay” Smithers released the following statement: “ The media coverage combined with our tireless efforts to locate Mr. Fraker obviously caused him to realize that his apprehension was inevitable.”
Fraker was wanted for accusations of molesting underage boys.
West Virginia State Police are still trying to find Kenneth Fraker, a man accused of molesting little boys.
We sat down with Fraker's mother Joann Smarr to talk about the allegations against her son. She says she is embarrassed and upset but says her son would never do anything like he is accused of doing.
Troopers say Fraker took young boys camping in Richie County where he owns a campsite, and molested them.
Right now they say they know of 4 alleged victims.
The boys are family friends.
Troopers need your help to find Fraker. He is about 5-10 and 140 pounds. He may be driving a white or silver 2008 ford F-150 with West Virginia tags V34-565.
He should be considered armed and dangerous.
If you have any information on his whereabouts, please call the West Virginia State Police at 304-643-2101.
