News Americas, BRIDGEPORT, Connecticut, Thurs. Sept. 6, 2018: A Caribbean national who has been on the US’ Marshals15 Most Wanted Fugitive list since 2004, has been nabbed by agents in Bridgeport, Connecticut
Marshals arrested Andre Neverson, 54, a Trinidad and Tobago native, who was 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.
At approximately 3:45 p.m. Tuesday, September 4th, 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.
The agents had received a tip that Neverson was hiding in a house there. They established surveillance and spotted Neverson as he exited the home. A short time later Neverson was taken into custody. He will now 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, placing him on the Most Wanted List.
Authorities previously described him as an “armed and dangerous” man who spoke several languages and wore wigs to disguise himself.
“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.
