South Burlington Police confirm Leroy Headley, a former US Marshals Top 15 Most Wanted, is back in Vermont after being arrested recently in Negril, Jamaica. Headley was on the run for nearly two years after allegedly killing his then girlfriend, Anako "Annette" Lumumba in May 2018. Investigators say after the murder Headley called 911 and fled. Reports say recently Headley was positively identified in Jamaica and put in handcuffs after being pulled over while driving a vehicle.

On February 15, 2020, Headley entered the United States after waiving extradition and was turned over to the South Burlington Police. He's currently being held without bail at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Center and is expected to be arraigned on February 18, 2020. In addition, authorities say Headley is facing a second warrant for sexual assault for allegedly engaging in a sexual act with a child under the age of 16.

"The United States Marshal Service worked tirelessly and leveraged all available resources in order to locate Headley and return him to Vermont. Our organization is very thankful for their efforts, Headley’s arrest brings a degree of closure to the family of his victim, Anako, and the South Burlington community," the South Burlington Police conclude in a press release.
