On Monday August 21, 2017, members of the Boston Police Fugitive Unit traveled to Atmore, Alabama where Andre Henderson, 34, of Hyde Park, had been placed in custody by the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Task Force as a Fugitive from Justice. The suspect has been returned to Boston and will face arraignment in Dorchester District Court for Murder.

Said Commissioner Evans, “I want to commend my officers and our law enforcement partners for their tireless efforts which led to this arrest. This suspect thought he could avoid facing justice by hiding out of state - but you can’t escape the reach of the U.S. Marshals or the Boston Police Department.”
