Child Rape Suspect Nabbed In Mississippi

A man who police say raped a child and then skipped town is back in police custody.

Bobby Gene Elks of Washington has been arrested in Potts Camp, Mississippi Monday night.

Authorities say Elks was out on bond on the child rape charge when he failed to show up for court on January 26th. A tip from Crime Stoppers helped lawmen find Elks.

Elks is being held without bond, pending a hearing for his return back to Beaufort County.

    most of the people whom have written something about bobby are related to him or have had a sexual relationship or even a baby even are having false accusations just to get even with his family. one should stop and look within themselves for they will see these words don't fit bobby but will come closer to fitting themselves especially to his brothers and ex girl friends. I know how is doing these writings on this web site.reep what u sow

    Bobby is scum.. and dog waste. I don't care if those kids waited until they were 60 years old to tell it. Good for you guys! Put him behind bars so bobby can be other rapist pin cushion. ...He is trying to get his life together... SO WHAT! Get you life together by paying for your crime... ...I hope he gets punked out in jail and he becomes Big Bubba's man witch... and they make bobby wear red kool aid on his lips and wash out underwear in his jail cell sink! That's for all the molested and raped children!!!!!

    Bobby was 26 when he molested a 9 year old, 13 year old and a 14 year old. I hope he rots in heck when he dies unless he get forgiveness from someone more important than us. And yes I know both sides of the story. He was married with a child at the time and he bragged about having sex with children. Sounds like a model citizen to me. Good Grief people.

    To all of you who are defending this man, I hope you are prepared to visit him in prison, because it looks like he will be going away. FYI failing to appear was not the brightest idea.

    It did not happen twenty some years ago, it was 16 yrs ago. Under NC law 13 and 14 yr olds can not give consent to have sex. Bobby was an adult he was 24 yrs old. How can you defend that. I guess you think it was mutual with the nine year old also? You are sick to defend this person. It's impossible for you to know what happened, you are only speculating. I for one think it's ok to be one sided when it comes to sex offenders. If there is not sufficient evidence he will not be convicted. It is never ok for an adult to have sex with a child. It is just sick.

    Just another creep that finally got caught. I do feel sorry for his kids and the kids that reported the rapes and the kids that didn't report being raped by Bobby. When murdurers,rapist,child molestors gets caught, or reported 98% of the time they have other victims that the law enforcement don't even know about

    people are one sided there is two sides to all stories this happened when he was young not yesterday it was mutual thing between them it is not child rape. judgement should not be past by people whom have not heard both sides. although the truth will come out.this happened twenty some years ago bobby was not very old. people learn facts before passing judgement
