Henderson Arrested

LABELLE, FL. -- James Henderson made a reappearance at the Hendry county
jail this morning after being arrested in Muse by FDLE agents, and Glades
and Hendry deputies. Henderson escaped the jail last week while serving a
sentence for auto theft and now is under suspicion in the murder of Dan
Woosley. Woosely was found dead only hours after Henderson walked out of the

Hendry Sheriff Ronnie Lee has not allowed much information out about the
case and has apparently dispensed with the office of Public Information
after taking office January 1, and not using the former Sheriff Sergeant who
worked as Public Information Officer for many years. Sheriff Lee was
formerly a State Attorney's Investigator, and Hendry Sheriff beforeSheriff
Steve Worley's term. For the last several years Lee was the chief
agricultural investigator for U.S. Sugar Corp. in Clewiston. A news
conference will be scheduled this morning at the Hendry Sheriff's office,
although it is expected the Sheriff will be as tight lipped as always and
not reveal much that is already known, and will excuse himself for not
answering questions because the investigation of James Henderson in the jail
escape and murder is still pending.
