WASHINGTON COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – Washington County, Tenn., sheriff’s investigators began driving back from New Orleans on Wednesday with bags of evidence gathered by local authorities who captured a man there accused of killing his parents and aunt in Jonesborough.
Washington County Sheriff Ed Graybeal confirmed investigators left around noon Wednesday from New Orleans with 17 or 18 bags of evidence related to Daniel Henry, 38, who faces three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Robert Henry, 66; Melody Henry, 55; and Barbara Hammonds, 64. Their bodies were found in a Skyline Road home in Jonesborough this past weekend.
Henry was named a suspect and placed on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s most wanted list. He was found in New Orleans by local and federal authorities Saturday evening.
In New Orleans, Henry faced several drug charges but those were dismissed and he waived extradition in a Tuesday court hearing.
Graybeal said the sheriff’s office contracts with a federal transport company that will bring Henry back to Jonesborough. That company had 10 days in which to return Henry beginning Tuesday.
