Urgent! Bo Dukes in Tara Grinstead murder on the run, wanted by Warner Robins, GA. police on rape charge

A Georgia man accused of concealing the body of teacher Tara Grinstead is now wanted on additional charges, authorities confirmed on Wednesday.

The Telegraph reports that 32-year-old Bo Dukes is wanted on charges of rape, aggravated sodomy, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and false imprisonment, stemming from a incident on Tuesday in Warner Robins, off of the 300 block of Charlestown Way.

“At this time, officers believe he brought two women to his home under threat of physical violence and with a firearm in hand committed the offenses,” Warner Robins police said in a statement. “Dukes has made suicidal threat……He’s known to drink heavily and has a history of cocaine use.”

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Dukes was one of two men accused of taking part in Grinstead’s death and disappearance. In 2017, he was indicted on charges of concealing a death, tampering with evidence, and hindering apprehension of a criminal. A trial date has been set for April 1. Grinstead was last seen in 2005, in Ocilla, Georgia.

In an unrelated case, Dukes was convicted in 2013 of conspiracy to steal government property. He served two years and was released in 2015. Yet, since he failed to pay $130,000 restitution and failed to fulfill 40 hours of community service, a judge scheduled him to return to federal court within 45 days in November, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
