Multiple arrests made one week after Mississippi’s Most Wanted list unveiled

A week after law enforcement officials released Mississippi’s Most Wanted list, several arrests have been made.

Mississippi Crime Stoppers received anonymous tips Friday about Allan D. Henderson. The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Marshal Service Task Force arrested Henderson without incident in the Jackson area. Henderson is being held at the Madison County Correctional Facility pending being taken into custody by the Mississippi Department of Corrections.

Henderson was wanted by MDOC for absconding supervision. He had been granted earned-time release by MDOC in 2016 and had not reported to his probation officer since February of 2019. Henderson was previously convicted of Manslaughter after he strangled his girlfriend to death and left her body outside a day care in Pearl. Henderson was also convicted of child abandonment after he left his deceased girlfriend’s 9-month-old child with her deceased body and fled the scene.

Another suspect on the list, Oscar C. McNeil, turned himself in Sunday to Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace, the MBI said. McNeal was wanted by the MBI and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department for aggravated assault and armed robbery.

Also on Sunday, Kevin D. Cope Jr. was arrested by the Clinton Police Department and is now being held in the Amite County Jail. Cope was wanted by the MBI and the Amite County Jail for two counts of child fondling.

On Monday, Jessie Dennis Jr. was taken into custody. He is being held in the Leflore County Jail. Dennis was wanted by the MBI and the Grenada County Sheriff’s Office for rape.

On Tuesday, MBI officials were notified by the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department that Burnell E. McCann was in custody and being held in the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center located in Louisiana. McCann was wanted by the MBI and the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department for failure to register as a sex offender.

“The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is proud to announce the establishment of the Mississippi’s Most Wanted list,” said Lt. Col. Lee Morrison, Director of the MBI. “The immediate success of the program is truly a collaborative effort between the citizens of this state and law enforcement. The apprehension of these dangerous individuals is a prime example of how the phrase, ‘See Something, Say Something,’ plays a vital role in protecting our communities.”

Anyone with information regarding Mississippi’s Most Wanted is asked to contact Mississippi Crime Stoppers at 1-888-8CRIMES (1-888-827-4637).
