I actually got this inadvertently when trying to get the 3 for 1 with a RC bomb car. During the shrouded bunker mission, after going down the elevator there is a guy with his back turned who is perfect for a silent kill with the crossbow. Now i had saved my game before this cause of the group of guys after him for the RC bomb car chevo. After trying numerous times and continuously reloading my save this achievement popped. I had killed 2 people earlier so it was right at 8 times that I got this. So apparently reloading saves works for these types of achievements.
ooWoody Thanks man. Worked perfectly, however I did it in a different area with a guys back turned. Nonetheless great solution.

Jameson Note: you do not have to die and reload. You can just shoot the guy, immediately pause, load save, repeat. The weird thing is that the counter of "Crossbow Stealth Kills" in your Statistics menu will not increment, but you get the achievement anyway.

Dixxxxxon Awesome! I love it when games count kills this way :)

Comedian Josh W Worked like a charm !

I just wanted to add some points if I may.

When I was searching this, I was looking for what exactly counted as a stealth kill. Did you have to crouch? Do you have to be undetected? Does it have to be a kill from behind?

I was curious because I was killing guys with the bow and arrow, but no achievement.

Anyway, I can add that you DO NOT have to be crouching, as your method here worked without me doing that.

So for anyone curious, like I was, or perhaps is looking to do it without this exploit, it seems as though a stealth kill is a kill that is done BEFORE you are detected, and subsequently in a gunfight. Anything after that will not count.

Thank you for allowing me to make this little addition, and hope it may help anyone in my former shoes.

THUMBS UP to this Solution !!
