U.S. MARSHALS ADD NEW YORK
CITY MURDER SUSPECT
TO 15 MOST WANTED FUGITIVES LIST
Andre Neverson is Wanted for Two Murders, Parole Violation, Illegal Entry
Washington, 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. For more information on this and other major cases,
