ERLANGER, Ky. — The Erlanger Police Department on Wednesday requested the public’s help locating a man and woman suspected of multiple sex crimes. According to officers, the pair had been spotted in the area Tuesday night but evaded an “extensive search” involving several local agencies.

Billy Ray Holt, 37, stands charged with rape and sodomy of a child. Jessica Ann Dietz, 38, stands charged with sodomy and sexual abuse.

Holt is 5-feet-10-inches tall and weighs 150 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. Dietz is 5-foot-7 and weighs 118 pounds, with blonde hair and blue eyes.

Both had been seen exiting a cab and running into the woods on Skye Drive on Tuesday night. Erlanger Det. Tom Loos said they have also been known to frequent Dry Ridge and Walton.

Police did not provide additional information about the pair’s alleged crimes but prompted anyone who sees them to call 911.
