  U.S. Marshals Arrest 15 Most Wanted New York City Murder Suspect in Bridgeport
Andre Neverson is Wanted for Two Murders, Parole Violation, Illegal Entry into U.S.

Andre NEVERSON (CAPTURED)Washington, D.C. - U.S. Marshals in Bridgeport, Connecticut, have arrested a 15 Most Wanted fugitive wanted in New York for the 2002 murder of his sister and an ex-girlfriend, as well as for parole violation and illegal entry into the United States.

Andre Neverson, 54, is a Trinidad and Tobago native who was added to the U.S. Marshals’ "15 Most Wanted" fugitives list in February 2004.

At approximately 3:45 p.m. today, U.S. Marshals from the Connecticut Violent Fugitive Task Force, along with members of the Bridgeport Police Department, arrested Neverson in the 600 Block of Ogden Street in Bridgeport. After developing information that Neverson was hiding in a house there, U.S. Marshals established surveillance and spotted Neverson as he exited the home. A short time later Neverson was taken into custody and will await transfer to New York City.

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 U.S. Marshals adopted the case in 2004

“The United States Marshals Service is extremely pleased to have a violent criminal, who murdered two women in New York, off the streets of Connecticut after 16 years on the run,” said U.S. Marshal Brian Taylor, District of Connecticut.

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.

The Violent Fugitive Task Force is a team of law enforcement officers led by U.S. Marshals from the District of Connecticut. The task force’s objective is to seek out and arrest violent fugitives and sexual predators. Membership agencies include; Hartford, New Haven, Hamden, West Haven, Bridgeport, Norwalk, and Waterbury Police Departments as well as CT Parole.
