ICE returns fugitive wanted for murder in Jamaica

MIAMI — A Jamaican national wanted by law enforcement authorities in his native country for murder was escorted out of the United States Thursday by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).

Donald Anthony Nash, 26, departed Alexandria, Louisiana, Thursday. ERO officers turned him over to authorities in Kingston, Jamaica, later that morning. Nash, who is affiliated with the Scare Dem Gang, was wanted for the alleged murder of Ricardo Kelly. Kelly, aka Duke, was killed the morning of March 10 by a group of individuals traveling in a vehicle as he was leaving the Denham Town Police Station on Regent Street in West Kingston.

On March 20, the U.S. Coast Guard encountered Nash on board a 26-foot vessel attempting to enter the country illegally. Nash was detained, processed by Border Patrol and subsequently transferred to ICE custody for his removal.

"Removing Nash, a murder suspect in Jamaica, is a prime example of how ICE works closely with our international law enforcement partners to identify, locate and deport aliens who are wanted in their home countries for allegedly committing crimes," said Marc J. Moore, field office director for ERO Miami. "ERO prioritizes the arrest and removal of convicted criminal aliens. As a result, our communities are safer and more secure."

ERO Miami coordinated the removal of Nash with the ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) attaché office in Kingston, Jamaica.

Since Oct. 1, 2009, ERO has removed more than 720 foreign fugitives from the United States who were being sought in their native countries for serious crimes, including kidnapping, rape and murder. ERO works with HSI's Office of International Affairs, foreign consular offices in the United States, and Interpol to identify foreign fugitives illegally present in the country.
