Accused killer of Kenny Mitchell labeled fugitive from the law

UBS Banker from Connecticut, Scott Hapgood who is charged with manslaughter in the death of Dominican hotel worker in Anguilla, Kenny Mitchel has been labeled as a ‘fugitive’ one day after skipping his court appearance in Anguilla.

According to an article from stamfordadvocate.com an arrest warrant is being processed for his return to the British territory to face a manslaughter charge.

The article further stated that the 44-year-old resident of Darien, Connecticut, in the US, is accused of killing hotel worker Kenny Mitchel during a violent confrontation while he was on a family vacation in April.

Hapgood was scheduled to appear Monday in an Anguillan court, but his defense team notified officials on the Caribbean island the night before that he would not attend based on their advice, according to Anguillan Attorney General Dwight Horsford.

    Hello and good afternoon my people. Well the authorities made a big mistake by allowing this murderer to leave rather they should have held him without bail and they should have taken his passport. They issued an arrest warrant through Interpol but the American government won’t enforce the warrant. It’s sad but we have to protest in front of his home in Connecticut and USB Bank on Wall Street. I also believe that the American government will change this murderer name and they will move him to another state or in their witness protection program. The family have to get a lawyer in Connecticut or New York to sue him in civil court. Rest in peace Kenny I know your family and am willing to help in New York and Connecticut for justice .

      Americans are above law, that is what we promote. If it were someone from the region they would never have been granted bail that would have allowed them to leave the island.

    Kenny’s murder must not be allowed to become just another statistic. Caribbean people, particularly Dominicans and Anguillans, must trumpet the call for justice for Kenny and his family. If this murderer escapes justice, this will only give a green light to other tourists/visitors, with racist tendencies, to do likewise. When a US citizen is murdered in any foreign country, the US government and its citizens always demand justice. Why is the Dominican government so silent on this issue. Dominicans demand that this American fugitive be sent back to Anguilla to account for his murderous action.
    JUSTICE FOR KENNY!!!

      Justice for Kenny! I hope that this American fugitive will be sent down on the same flight with the 52 undocumented Dominicans that Trevor Johnson snitched on. It is because of people like Trevor Johnson that criminals like this man can disrespect the people and laws of other countries.

    Americans have a president who is above the law, so the people feel emboldened. There will be no justice for Kenny, unless of course we the people demand it.

    This man simply will avoid anguilla but basically will be free to live his life as normal as if it never happened. Black people dont matter, foreign black people arent even people. That’s the attitude. Insignificant

    Who will stand for Kenny and the rest of us? If this man gets away it will be a green light to other racist white tourists to kill Caribbean people and fly out scott free. Why has our Government done nothing about this?? Kenny was a Dominican like us. Who will speak for him? Who will get justice for us?

      Agreed! The Anguillan authorities dropped the ball. That murderer should have never been given the opportunity to leave the shores of Anguilla before a court trial. This just cannot be right.

    I am not surprised. He is not the first from Darien to skip out on a court date. The city of Darien is a very rich city in Connecticut. People from a certain segment of society in this large country, feel that they can travel to anywhere in the world and do thing with impunity. They have this disdain for the laws of other countries, and other groups of people. The sad reality is that, they feel embolden, because they are of the opinion that these little countries in particular, are so dependent on their tourist dollars, that these small countries will not do anything to be ostracized. But one thing to remember, karma does not expire. and it is generational.

    I hope the authorities have his passport in their possession.

      That means nada. Only in small countries they make such a force about that holding passport idea. The man is back in his country so what good does the passport do to the Anguillan authorities? :lol: :lol: :lol: . Hopefully they can have him extradited to face justice for his crimes. God thing is Anguilla is still a British Territory so that makes it more likely the US will comply

    The prayers of Dominican people are powerful. We are. A praying nation and this man could have done that with any other person but not a Dominican. We will keep on praying until we get justice.
