MARION COUNTY, FL – On Wednesday, September 14, 2022, Marion County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) Major Crimes Detectives arrested 67‐year‐old Edwin Kevin Walker for sexual battery on a victim less than 12 years of age, a capital felony. Walker was 55-years-old at the time of the reported crime.

According to authorities, on August 9, 2022, a sergeant with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office (JSO) contacted MCSO regarding a possible sex crime that occurred 10-12 years ago. Detective Peterson then made contact with the victim who described an incident that occurred when he was a juvenile; approximately ten years old. The victim recounted that Walker had taken him for a drive in a Jeep near Walker’s Salt Springs home. During the drive, Walker parked the Jeep and lured the victim into the woods by telling the victim he had been bitten by a snake, at which time he forcibly sexually battered the victim.

On September 14, 2022, Detective Peterson interviewed Walker about his interactions with the victim. Walker acknowledged having interacted with the victim 10-12 years ago and admitted that he touched the victim’s genitalia while teaching the victim how to masturbate. Walker further admitted he had provided the victim with movies to watch that depicted nude men and women but denied having ever engaged in anal sex with the victim and requested an attorney.

Walker was arrested for one count of sexual battery on a victim less than 12 years of age and transported to the Marion County Jail, where he is being held with no bond. It is believed that Walker may have other victims. If you are a victim or know of a victim of Walker’s, please contact Detective Peterson at (352) 368-3539.
