In a segment that aired on Thursday, May 23, Inside Edition reporter Lisa Guerrero tracked down Matthew Lee Aiken in Worcester and questioned Aiken as to why he hadn’t provided his new address with the sex offender registry.

Inside Edition is an investigative newsmagazine series that airs on CBS. 

Aiken told Guerrero that he’s been “too busy” when she asked him why he hadn’t registered his new address. When Guerrero said she had just saw him smoking a cigarette with a neighbor, Aiken replied, “Like I said, I’m too busy.”

Aiken was convicted of indecent assault and battery on a child. Four days after Guerrero and Inside Edition conducted their investigation, Aiken was arrested. 

Video synopsis from Inside Edition

Sex offender registries are designed to allow law enforcement and the public to keep track of those who may re-offend. But across the country, there are high-risk sex offenders who have not registered and authorities have no idea where they’re living. Matthew Lee Aiken is one of them. He was convicted of indecent assault and battery on a child, but failed to report his address. Police and the public had no idea where he was. Chief Investigative Correspondent Lisa Guerrero tracked him down.
