Accused Murderer Is Now On Texas’ Top 10 Most Wanted Fugitive List

The Texas Most Wanted Fugitives List continues to grow. Recently, a man accused of murdering a person just this year during a robbery was added by officials to the list.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said that the latest addition to the list is 27-year-old Dakevian Beniot Scroggins. Being part of that list was officially made on Monday as he remains on the loose.

Scroggins has been wanted for capital murder since May this year. He also faces charges like evading arrest or detention and a parole violation on top of capital murder. On May 13 of this year, he allegedly shot 33-year-old Christopher Frank Eiglebiger in Tyler, Texas. The shooting led to Eiglebiger’s death, who was reportedly shot a couple of times per the Tyler Police Department’s report.

A warrant for capital murder was issued on June 2. They warned the public that Scroggins could be armed and is dangerous. Police asked the people to keep an eye out for Scroggins. He is 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighs around 170 pounds, and has tattoos on both of his upper arms.

In an attempt to catch Scroggins, a cash reward of $7,500 is being offered by the Texas Crime Stoppers. Any information that could lead to the arrest of Scroggins will guarantee the cash reward if they submit the tip by calling Crime Stoppers’ hotline, or submit a tip through their website, or submit a tip through their Facebook page. The tips will remain anonymous.

Aside from the capital murder charge, authorities have wanted Scroggins since September of 2019 after he violated his parole conditions. He was previously jailed for felony convictions like an assault against a public servant and possession of a prohibited woman.
