Andre Neverson is Wanted for Two Murders, Parole Violation, Illegal Entry into U.S.

Andre NeversonWASHINGTON, D.C. - The Marshals Service added New York City fugitive and Trinidad and Tabago native Andre Neverson, 39, to its "15 Most Wanted" fugitives list. He is wanted for the murder of his sister and an ex-girlfriend, as well as for parole violation and illegal entry into the United States.

"Three participating agencies of the Marshals Service regional task force in the New York/New Jersey area requested that we adopt this investigation as a major case," said Assistant Director Bob Finan, head of Marshals Service criminal investigations. "Andre Neverson has a history of violence and numerous prior convictions. He must be brought to justice."

On July 8, 2002, Neverson allegedly murdered his sister by shooting her in the head and stomach. He allegedly abducted a former girlfriend the next day. The woman was found dead two days later with a mortal wound to the head. At the time of both murders, he was paroled by the state of New York for attempted murder in the second degree, assault in the first degree and criminal possession of a firearm.

On Nov. 6, 2002, the fugitive, 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.

The fugitive is a black male, who was born in Trinidad and Tobago May 5, 1964. He is about six-feet two-inches tall and weighs approximately 240 pounds. He has brown eyes, black hair and a muscular build. Investigators believe the wanted man is computer literate.

His criminal history includes one conviction for assault, two for weapons offenses and one for attempted murder. He served nearly five years in the custody of correctional authorities in New York for prior convictions, and was deported July 7, 2000, as an aggravated felon. He illegally re-entered the United States in September 2000 by using a false Jamaican passport.

Due to his past criminal history and the nature of his alleged crimes, he is considered armed and dangerous. He also is wanted by the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Division of Parole for New York state and the NYPD. Anyone with information about Neverson's movements or whereabouts is asked to contact the U.S. Marshals at 1-800-336-0102.

The U.S. Marshals Service is the nation's oldest federal law enforcement agency. Annually, U.S. Marshals arrest more than 50 percent of all federal fugitives and serve more federal warrants than all other federal law enforcement agencies combined. Last year, U.S. Marshals cleared 36,304 federal fugitive warrants and cleared an additional 32,759 state and local fugitive warrants through USMS co-operative task forces.
