MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - A sex offender who escaped from Texas earlier this month has been found dead in Myrtle Beach.

Authorities tell media outlets that 48-year-old Brent Allen Jozefkowicz was found dead on the beach in Myrtle Beach early Saturday morning. The coroner’s office says he died of a gunshot wound and his death has been ruled a suicide.

He was listed on the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders list and was considered armed and dangerous.

Authorities say he cut off his ankle monitor device Aug. 4 and escaped from the Fort Worth Transitional Center Halfway House.
