New Orleans – A man accused of killing both his parents and aunt in Northeast Tennessee has been recently captured in New Orleans.
Daniel Lee Henry, 38, was added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s “Top 10 Most Wanted List” for the murder of three people. The incident was discovered on October 3rd when a woman in California called 911 reporting that Henry told her he had killed his family.
About 1:30 am, Washington County deputies found the bodies in the victims’ home. Washington County Sheriff Ed Graybeal told the Johnson City paper that they had been shot in the head sometime on Friday.
Henry, who lived at the home on the 100-block of Skyline Road, was not found. Earlier reports believed he may have left Tennessee, possibly heading to California. He was also considered by local law enforcement as armed and unsafe.
About 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Henry was arrested in New Orleans by the U.S. Marshals Service Task Force while staying at a hotel where he had checked in under his own name.
The victims were identified as Henry’s parents Robert Kenneth Henry, 66, Melody Diane Henry, 55, and his aunt Barbara June Hammonds, 64. He was described as a white male, standing 5’11 and weighing approximately 190 pounds.
