3D Gun Leader Flees To Taiwan, Cops Seek Extradition

The San Antonio Express reports:

Cody Wilson, the owner of a controversial Austin business that distributes blueprints for untraceable 3-D printed guns, fled to Taiwan after he was tipped off about a police investigation into sexual relations between him and a 16-year-old girl, police said.

He faces a charge of sexual assault of a child in Austin. “Before he left, he was informed by a friend of the victim that she had spoken to police, and police were investigating him for having sex with a minor,” said Austin Police Commander Troy Officer.

Officer said it was unclear when Wilson left for Taiwan, or why exactly he went there, but he didn’t board a return flight to the United States. Austin police are now working with international law enforcement agencies to extradite Wilson back to Travis County for prosecution.
