Nassau Bahamas – A man wanted in connection with the death of some Haitians smuggled between Bimini and Florida in a fatal voyage was sighted at the popular resort in Bimini early Sunday morning. Residents in Bimini quickly contacted Bahamas Press after viewing the ‘American’s Most Wanted’ last evening. Police have yet to draw in on Henry Pierre a longtime resident of the island who is said to have been an accomplice with a smuggling ring. Since 2005, more than 30 people have died as a result of smuggling rings, alleged to have been carried out by Pierre and his partner Devon Russell, who is also believed to be hiding in The Bahamas and wanted on federal murder charges.

In the early morning hours of November 5, 2005, a fisherman in Pompano Beach, Fla., just north of Fort Lauderdale, discovered the body of a black woman along the shore. He called 9-1-1, and the Broward County Sheriff’s Office responded, searching the area for more clues.
As police combed the beach, they discovered a total of three bodies a few miles apart. The victims were all dead, black women, fully dressed. Also on the beach, deputies picked up shoes, purses, a Bible, a toothbrush and other belongings.
At first, veteran BSO Homicide Sgt. Glenn Bukata didn’t know what he was dealing with. “We really thought a boat had capsized and that there may have been more bodies, more victims,” he said.
