No Show Delays Trial

Jury selection or a kidnapping case was canceled Monday in Nacogdoches. The man accused of the crime did not show up for court. Now, John McCroskey is a fugitive.

He was out on bond for kidnapping an 81-year-old Nacogdoches County man in 2005. McCroskey is accused of taking the elderly man from his Chireno home, driving him to a field, and putting him in a car trunk. McCroskey did all this before going back to the man's house and burglarizing it.

The victim managed to escape from the car trunk and was prepared to testify in the trial, scheduled to begin on Tuesday.  Anyone with information about McCroskey should contact the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Department.
