US officials say fugitive could be in Cayman

| 09/09/2011

(CNS): According to reports in the US media, law enforcement officials are seeking a fugitive who they believe may now be in the Cayman Islands. US marshals said that they are closing in on a former Meredith man who fled in 1997 after allegedly torching his girlfriend’s home because he was angry she broke up with him. 68-year-old James Lyman Hill faces arson charges for allegedly dousing his ex-girlfriend’s home in diesel fuel and setting it alight. He was indicted by a Belknap County grand jury. Officials also state that Hill, who may be hiding out here, has allegedly twice faked his own death during the 1990s the first time he reportedly ran a stolen boat aground, and then the second time he crashed a car.

Marshals say Hill is known to work as a carpenter or handyman. He is white, six-feet tall, 200 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes, the reports reveal.

    If he is here in Cayman why don't they come and get him then?

    When since do the US Marshals announce where a fugitive is before trying to apprehend him or her.  I'm sure that they would have been across Cayman long ago to capture.

    This smells fishier that a fish market.  What a bunch of …………….

      And Elvis could be in a diner somewhere in Nevada… Agree that this is a rubbish slander attempt.

      Cayman has an extradition treaty with the US so if they are so sure they could get him extradited.

    While the US Marshalls are here, maybe they could help us solve some of our crimes. Just a thought! Mr. Duncan, free room & board for a couple months might be all they require.

    If he is in fact in the Cayman Islands and US marshalls are closing in on him,  why are we giving him the heads up on this? 

    Just asking……..

      10:37,  I believe giving the heads up will make him come out of his hole and want to run.

        No! The thumbs up is in support of him and others who come here with the their money. We just say to him that he has enough money and you look like you are of retirement age, so well come, you are from the right country. Just wait and see how many more of him you will see poping up very soon.

        Dudus gone and now singing on the choir for his country in the U.S.A, now we will have our own mass choir singing for the world to see and hear.

    We can’t even find our own criminals, so I won’t keep my hopes up for finding him.

    Arson?!?!  We were being burnt to death with high prices everyday and you talk about a house alone?  I can give you my grocery, electrical and petrol receipts and then we can talk!

    But he does look familier? Humm

    Could he be one of the negotiators for the Chinese?

    Well, he'll fit in just fine with the rest of criminals.  No one will even notice him.

      You have a point there, so many criminals are here from all over the world that he could blend in with all the rest.  This is so sad but it's a fact, I was fortunate or unfortunate to hear parts of a conversation between two friends who came here from North America and one was telling the ordeall of how her friend was being abused by her boyfriend and that he was here and should not be as he was recently released from prison.  I was so stunned to think that we have people living here that are criminals and we have not done the proper due diligence on.  I hate to see what is happening in this island, yes we have home grown criminals but we also have just as many that we have imported over time.

    We have far more dangerous people that are sitting in ourL.A. that we should be concerned about.

      I AGREE.  Maybe he is the one who is going to make all of the premier's "pie-in-the-sky" dreams. I am getting tired of seeing all these big plans for the country and up until now everything is costing more than it ever did before,  Is the fault of the PPM?  We were promised a financxial relief under the UDP government and things are worse now than they have ever been.  When you went to the supermarket to buy food, you could normally spend 200.00 per week, now you had better have 300-350 per week to be able to eat the same things you used to get for 200.00.  I'll bet the premier is not suffering where food is concerned. m Anyway, IT SOON BE DONE.
