Kim Avis – More Facts You Need to Know
Avis was out on bail when he flew into Los Angeles International Airport in February 2019, under the name Ken Gordon-Avis.
Several days later, his teenage son reported him missing from Monastery Beach off the coast of Carmel, California, after he said Avis went swimming at night in treacherous waters. Searchers found no traces in the area sometimes called “Mortuary Beach” because of his lethal reputation.
After three days of intense searching, detectives began to suspect a hoax. They said the son’s account lacked crucial details and he couldn’t answer basic questions like how the two got to California’s central coast after flying from Scotland to Los Angeles.
California authorities then discovered that Avis, who is from the Edinburgh area, was wanted on multiple ra**pe charges in Scotland. Subsequently, his son returned home and faced no charges for filing a false report.
The investigation was turned over to the United States Marshals Service, which has the responsibility of catching the wanted criminals. Avis was arrested five months later in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and extradited back to Scotland, where he was in prison until his trial.
“Kim Avis did everything possible to evade justice for his crimes,” said Fraser Gibson, a s**ex crimes prosecutor for the Superior Court. “Thanks to the efforts of the police and prosecutors, working together with law enforcement agencies in the United States, he has been brought to justice.”
