UPDATE 3/31/20:

Frederick McCaskill has been captured thanks to a tipster who watched "In Pursuit with John Walsh" on the night of the March 11, 2020. The person had direct information about where McCaskill could be and called 833-3-PURSUE directly with details.

The tipster's information was collected and turned directly over to the US Marshals and they dispatched the Southwest Regional Fugitive Taskforce in Atlanta, Georgia. The team worked the information over the course of a few days and on March 30, 2020 were able to make the arrest.


On October 8, 2018 police in Austin, TX find Mary Ramos in a horrific state. Ramos was beaten, bleeding and left in front of an apartment. Once she's transported to the hospital, doctors discover two separate bleeds on her brain combined with multiple facial fractures. She was forced to use a feeding tube and had to have many surgeries to repair the damage.

Investigators soon learned the person allegedly responsible was Frederick Alan McCaskill. Authorities say Mary was attempting to end the relationship with McCaskill and it almost turned deadly. In November 2018, only one month after the incident, McCaskill confessed to his role in the crime. But before a formal case could be brought forward, McCaskill took off and hasn't been seen since.
