Default Re: Wade, LA negro inmate killed warden's stepdaughter (WF, 19); inmate killed in standoff

Prison escapee requested shorter sentence in 2015
Updated 1:46 p.m. CT July 28, 2017

An escaped inmate who is accused of killing a 19-year-old girl before law enforcement officials killed him in a standoff was in prison after pleading guilty to a 1999 armed robbery in Farmerville.

Henderson, 39, was found to be missing from the state prison
in north-central Louisiana's Claiborne Parish on Thursday afternoon.

Around 1:40 p.m. a manhunt started, according to information from the Louisiana Department of Corrections. Officers found a wrecked pickup along Louisiana 520 about a mile northeast of the prison. They determined that Henderson had stolen, then crashed it.

The deceased victim, Amanda Carney, whom authorities are saying was the step-daughter of an assistant warden at the prison, was found another quarter mile to the northeast, near a dirt road that connects to the highway.

Henderson is believed to have kidnapped and killed Carney. Later that afternoon, officers found Henderson in a home on the prison property. They surrounded the structure and returned fire after Henderson shot at them. He was killed during the incident.

Henderson, a trusty at David Wade Correctional Center, had been locked up at the facility since June 4, 2001, for three different convictions. His sentences began a month earlier at Elayn Hunt Correctional Center in St. Gabriel on May 4, 2001.
