One of the men charged in relation to the murder of two US missionaries last year reportedly escaped police custody while at the Port Maria Hospital.

He is 25-year-old Dwight Henry, otherwise called ‘Dougie’ of Wentworth, Port Maria in St Mary. 

Details regarding Henry’s escape are sketchy, however police with the assistance of the Jamaica Defence Force are reportedly actively searching for Henry. 

Henry was charged along with 25-year-old Andre Thomas of Port Maria, both of St Mary, for the murders of the US missionaries – 48-year-old Randy Hentzel, and 53-year-old Harold Nichols.

The murder case against Henry and Thomas was set to be mentioned in January, while a hearing in the case was set for February 17 in the St Mary Parish Court.

The missionaries – Randy Hentzel and Harold Nichols of US outreach group, TEAMS for Medical Missions, were found dead in Albion Mountain district in St Mary on Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1, respectively.

Hentzel’s body was discovered face down with his hands bound and Nichols’ body was found with his head bashed in.

Autopsies later revealed that Hentzel died of a gunshot wound while Nichols had a gunshot and chop wounds.
