U.S. pedophile arrested in Jaco on Monday was deported this morning


August 9th, 2013 ( The Department of Immigration has announced that U.S. citizen Kirk William Owen was deported this morning.  Authorities revoked his tourist visa citing the man’s “risk profile.”  Authorities confirmed that Owen left the country via the Juan Santamaria Airport.


Owen was arrested in Jacó on Monday under an INTERPOL Red Alert.


The man had apparently entered the country 14 times since November 14th, and registered 25 entries into the country via the Paso Canoas border with Panama.  The man’s movements were apparently done in order to maintain a tourist visa in the country.


Freddy Montero, Deputy Minister of Interior, said that Owen never obtained residency in the country and would exit and re-enter the same day in order to maintain his tourist status.


Owen was convicted on January 5th, 1987 by a court in Sedgwick, Kansas for sexual offenses against a minor.  He was later convicted a second time, on December 16th, 2002 by a court in Beaver, Oklahoma, again for sexual offenses against a minor.


Interpol issued a Red Alert for the man on July 30th.  He was located very soon after in Jaco beach.


Owen also apparently has a pending case in Costa Rica for assault with a firearm.8

    Could you tell me why certain parts of Guanstle have had internet problem the last 3 weeks please. Ive been trying to contact a friend but i cant get in touch. Thank you

    • turbooperator

      Where might one find Guanstle?

    • Chris Thomas

      What does your internet problem have to do with this story?

      • Maria Eugenia

        Mr Thomas is concerned and looking for answers which he can’t find on the forum that is so messed up even the moderator has not accessed it since 16-June

        • Timothy Williams

          Maria, we agree, and we are working on it. The Russian, Chinese, etc. spammers are hard to keep at bay without some volunteer moderators, which we have none at the moment, and simply don’t have the staff and resources to constantly delete the spam.

          We are working on this issue from a technical side, however, which within a week or two should start to take effect.

    He won’t last long in a US prison.

  • Chris Thomas

    Does anyone know what this guy did for a living obliviously he had alot of cash trips back and forth and driving a Porche in Jaco

  • Joe1047

    How is it that this man managed to leave the US with 2 prior convictions? I am assuming he wasn’t travelling under a false passport as they managed to find him in a couple of days.

  • CliffWilcoxenPedophile

    first, this guy didn’t spend one day in jail because the crimes he plead no contest to were very minor! No Sex and No TouchingFYI and he is not wanted anywhere for anything. The case in CR was a disgruntled neighbor said owen tried to hit him with his car (agress. con arma, no gun) He has never and will never spend any time in prison, the finest, most honest man in jaco- bar none.

    Kirk Owen had done nothing wrong in Costa Rica. He was railroaded by a detestable little swindler with an expired visa. Doug Smith, of Willspy. A WORLD CLASS FRAUD. Smith was deported himself for Fraud, and for being an illegal alien in Costa Rica for eight years. Smith continues to claim to live in Escazu, Costa Rica; in a continuance of Cyber Fraud.

    • David Levaughn

      Smith actually tried to bully the Police in Jaco to harass Owen. With his Visa expired. Those same Jaco Police would now love to get their hands on Smith.

      • David Levaughn

        Smith followed Owen in the path to Deportation. After spending a month in the Immigration Jail in Hatillo.
