US hunting for Trinidadian fugitive
BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) — United States law enforcement authorities are seeking the public's assistance in locating a Trinidadian man wanted in that country for allegedly killing his sister and an ex-girlfriend in 2002.
The man, Andre Neverson, is believed to have fled the United States and may be residing in Barbados or other Caribbean islands, the US Embassy here said in a statement yesterday.
Neverson, the embassy said, has ties to Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Bahamas, Grenada, St Vincent, and Canada. A reward of US$25,000 is being offered for information leading directly to his arrest.
Neverson allegedly murdered his sister by shooting her in the head and stomach on July 8, 2002. The next day, he allegedly abducted a former girlfriend. She was found dead two days later with a mortal head wound.
The US Embassy statement said at the time of both murders he was on parole in the state of New York for attempted murder in the second degree, assault in the first degree and criminal possession of a firearm.
In November 2002, Neverson, armed with a handgun, allegedly entered the home of another ex-girlfriend in an attempt to visit his daughter. The woman's brother interrupted the unannounced visit, and Neverson fled with no further incident. The New York City Police Department searched the area for the felon, but never located him.
Neverson has been classified as one of the US Marshals Service's "15 Most Wanted" fugitives. He is also wanted by the US Department of Homeland Security Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Division of Parole for New York State and the NYPD.
Neverson, 49, is about 6' 2" tall and about 240 pounds. He has brown eyes, black hair and is of a muscular build.
"He has a violent criminal history with a pronounced pattern of violence toward women. Neverson speaks several languages and is known to always carry a firearm. He usually keeps his head shaved but has been known to wear wigs to disguise himself. Investigators believe Neverson is computer savvy.
"Due to his past criminal history and the nature of his alleged crimes, Neverson is considered armed and dangerous," the US Embassy statement said.
