Criminal Who Escaped For Decades

criminal who escaped for decades

Our parents and grandparents often talk about murder or kidnapping cases left unresolved by the police even after decades of investigation. Sometimes, it may be that the police were not successful in recognising the criminal, or maybe they could not catch and arrest the criminal. In Kerala, there was a similar case often called the ‘Kurup Case’ where the criminal who committed fraud and murder is still untraced. The fugitive named Shankara Kurup committed insurance fraud and murdered a man to fake his death about 3 decades ago, in 1984. 

He is still a wanted criminal who escaped the Kerala police’s watch for almost 40 years. This is just an example of some mastermind criminals who escaped the clutches of the police and authorities for decades which is still a popular topic among the people of Kerala.

Devan Duniver – What happened to her? Who was she?

The cases like the ones mentioned above are not only found in India; they are found in equal numbers in foreign countries. Different from the Kurup case, this case has a person who was convicted and declared guilty by the court. However, it was later found that he had confessed guilty under immense pressure from the police. The police are still trying to find the murderer even after 20 years.

Devan Duniver was a five-year-old child who was reported missing on 27th June 1998 and was found dead on 28th June 1998. The young child was reported missing by her mother, Lori Deviner. The family of three, comprising Lori, Devan and Dylan, her brother, used to live in an apartment in New Philadelphia. On 28th June 1998, Devan was found dead in the woods behind her house with numerous knife wounds on her neck.

Investigations by the police

The police first convicted 12-year-old Anthony Harris, who used to live near the apartment of Devan and her family, for murdering Devan. The police interrogated Harris, and he confessed guilty under severe pressure. Later he stated that he confessed because he was scared due to the severe pressure from the police. He was released after 2 years of a legal battle. The police dogs were also unsuccessful in finding the true killer, although they had found a suspect. The suspect was a former child molester who had Devan’s scent on him. Yet the police failed to get further clues to continue the investigations.

The true murderer of 5-year-old Devan is still unknown for about 2 decades, just like the whereabouts of Shankara Kurup have been unknown for 4 decades.
