The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation added a registered Nashville sex offender to its most wanted list.

Christopher Wayne Federico, 33, of 2405 Pafford Drive, is wanted by the Metro Nashville Police Department for assault, resisting arrest, evading arrest, violating his probation and violation of the sex offender registry, according to a TBI release.

He was found with two underage girls during a home check on July 26. The two girls, ages 14 and 6, were found in a crawlspace in a bedroom during the home check after Federico said they weren’t in his home.

Federico assaulted a police officer and fled on foot.

He was convicted of attempted aggravated sexual battery in 2005, and the 14-year-old was Federico’s original victim. She was 8 years old at the time of the offense.

His criminal history includes sex offenses, driving on a suspended license and writing worthless checks, according to the TBI.

Authorities described Federico as a 5-foot-11-inch white male weighing about 185 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. They believe he may have fled the Tennessee.

Anyone with information on Federico’s whereabouts can call 1-800-TBI-FIND to report information.

There's special place in hell for people like this. Perhaps someone will send him there sooner rather than later.

Why hell? The prisoners love child sex abusers. The abusers get poetic justice by being raped in prison. He'll squeal like a pig when his fellow inmates rape him. Before long, he'll be someone's woman while wearing a strapless bra and thong underwear. Hopefully, his man will think he looks pretty in that outfit.

I meant when he dies. Between now and then, your suggestion would work.
