Police are continuing their manhunt for the alleged killer of two US missionaries who recently escaped police custody.
On Tuesday afternoon (January 3), 25-year-old Dwight Henry, who also goes by the name ‘Dougie” was reportedly being held at the Oracabessa police station lock-up when he complained of feeling unwell.
He was taken to the Port Maria Hospital at around 1:40 pm before later escaping the custody of the police.
The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) has released a photo of Henry along with the following statement:
“The Police are seeking the public’s assistance in recapturing Dwight Henry, who escaped from the Port Maria Hospital on Wednesday, January 4.
He is wanted for the murders of two US missionaries in May 2016.

Henry was in custody since June 24, 2016, awaiting trial on charges of murder and illegal possession of firearm stemming from the killing of the missionaries, 48-year-old Randy Hentzel, and 53-year-old Harold Nichols.
He was charged along with 25-year-old Andre Thomas of Port Maria for the murders.
