MIAMI COUNTY, Ind. (April 29, 2015) - A former Lafayette surgeon  escaped home detention Tuesday night and is currently being sought by US Marshall's along with the Miami County Sheriff's department.

Late Tuesday night, Miami County authorities released  the following statement;

 "Gregory Konrath escaped from lawful detention after being sentenced to in-home detention.  Konrath forcibly removed his tracking device and fled the area. Konrath is believed to be operating a 2013 Chevrolet Captiva 4-door Sport Utility Vehicle bearing Indiana License WJE 795."

Konrath was initially arrested for attempted murder by the Miami County Sheriff’s Office July 8, 2014, after investigators discovered that he had discussed a plot to murder his ex-wife and had allegedly taken substantial steps towards the completion of that murder.  Konrath was later charged with two counts of stalking in addition to the attempted murder charge.

Konrath was placed on in-home detention in early April of this year after entering a plea agreement on the stalking charge.

Shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday, it was discovered that he had violated the in-home detention agreement by escaping from lawful detention and is currently now listed as a fugitive.

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Gregory Konrath is requested to contact their nearest law enforcement agency or the Miami County Sheriff’s Office at (765) 473-5474.
