Fugitive David Alan Bonness

David Alan Bonness has evaded capture since 2009. Bonness is wanted by the Pennington County Sheriff in S. Dak., and United States Federal Marshals on two counts of criminal pedophilia, seven counts of second-degree rape, three counts of third-degree rape, four counts of fourth-degree rape, and sexual contact with a child under 16.


Bonness poses a significant public risk, especially to children.  His crimes are described as horrific by U.S. Marshals Service Deputy Director David Harlow who has made the arrest of Bonness a number one priority.

In 2008, a 17-year-old girl disclosed Bonness had been sexually molesting her since she was 12-years-old. Bonness was questioned and released. Authorities obtained a warrant for a DNA collection but were too late. Bonness was gone.


Bonness was born February 24, 1968, and described as a white male, 5' 9" height, weighing approximately 180 pounds with brown hair and green eyes.


He is known to use the alias "David Allen Nuse" and has personal ties to the states of WY and NE.


Bonness is considered armed and dangerous.
