Robert William Mulkern Cops: Maryland Sex Offender Disappears Before Trial

Police believe Robert William Mulkern Jr. may have fled to Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, or even Canada.

Robert William Mulkern Jr. has been on the run since Sept. 20, 2010, when he failed to show for a scheduled court appearance. Police originally charged Mulkern with seven felony charges: four counts of third degree sex offense, two counts of unnatural or perverted practice, and one count of child pornography.

The Washington County Warrant Task Force found and arrested Mulkern and transported him to the Washington County Detention Center, but Mulkern somehow managed to post $75,000 bail.

After Mulkern bonded out, investigators with the Maryland State Police made a horrifying discovery: investigators recovered Mulkern's digital camera, which was littered with images of child pornography. As a result, police added 143 felony child pornography charges against Mulkern. Police say that's when and why Mulkern vanished.

Amongst the perverted photos, investigators also discovered another suspect -- Mike Zimmer. Police quickly located Zimmer and charged him with 65 counts of child pornography and one count of sexual abuse of a minor. Zimmer pleaded guilty and was given a five year prison sentence.

Cops: Alleged Pedophile Lived In Basement of Foster Home

Police recovered the alleged victim of Mulkern from this filthy and nearly uninhabitable trailer.

According to police, all of the charges filed against Mulkern are the result of an alleged sexual relationship he had with a 15-year-old girl.

Police say Mulkern met the child when he was renting a basement apartment in Hagerstown. The teenager was in temporary foster care. Authorities believe Mulkern had his sights set on her from the very start.

According to police, Mulkern began grooming her immediately -- buying her gifts, cigarettes, alcohol, a cell phone and whatever else he could in order to win her affections. Police eventually learned that Mulkern began having sex with the child in his basement apartment, just below where the child's foster mother lived.

Authorities believe when the 15-year-old left foster care and returned home to her mother, Mulkern convinced her to run away with him.

Police say Mulkern lived with the teenager for five months in a nearly uninhabitable trailer before the Maryland State Police Child Apprehension Unit recovered the missing child. Police arrested Mulkern shortly after her recovery, but that's when he bailed out and vanished.

Investigators believe Mulkern fled the state and is probably hiding somewhere in New England. He typically sponges off women, young or old, in order to support himself.

Take a good look at Mulkern's pictures and all the clues that could help lead to his arrest. Police need your tips in order to track him down. If you know anything about Robert William Mulkern Jr., call 1-800-CRIME-TV.

Since we haven't heard from him, he probably committed suicide somewhere. Anyway, save us the taxpayer's money!
