US authorities seeking whereabouts of wanted Trini


United States law enforcement authorities are seeking the public’s assistance in locating a Trinidadian man wanted in that country for allegedly killing his sister and an ex-girlfriend in 2002.

Andre Neverson is believed to have fled the United States and may be residing in Barbados or other Caribbean islands, the US Embassy here said in a statement yesterday.

Neverson has ties to Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Bahamas, Grenada, St Vincent and Canada and US authorities are offering a US$25,000 reward for information leading directly to his arrest. 

Neverson allegedly murdered his sister by shooting her in the head and stomach on July 8, 2002. The next day, he allegedly abducted a former girlfriend. She was found dead two days later with a mortal head wound.

The US Embassy statement said at the time of both murders, he was on parole in the State of New York for attempted murder in the second degree, assault in the first degree, and criminal possession of a firearm.

Neverson, 49, is a black male. He is about 6’2” tall and 240 pounds (last reported). He has brown eyes, black hair and a muscular build.

“He has a violent criminal history with a pronounced pattern of violence toward women. Neverson speaks several languages and is known to always carry a firearm. He usually keeps his head shaved but has been known to wear wigs to disguise himself. Investigators believe Neverson is computer savvy.

“Due to his past criminal history and the nature of his alleged crimes, Neverson is considered armed and dangerous,” the US Embassy statement said.    —CMC
