Authorities find Kansas City woman on FBI's Most Wanted list

The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The lone woman on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list was captured and charged with one count of second-degree murder, authorities said.

Shauntay L. Henderson, 24, was arrested Saturday when she answered the door at an apartment, police said. Authorities had gone to the apartment in search of someone she knew, authorities said.

Henderson, a reputed gang member, is charged with the September 2006 shooting death of DeAndre M. Parker, 20, who was killed as he sat in a pickup truck outside a convenience store. Court documents did not give a motive for the shooting.

She also is charged in a federal warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. She was caught Saturday night just before the television show "America's Most Wanted" announced her inclusion on the list.

Henderson was being held on $250,000 cash bond, and jail officials did not know whether she had an attorney.

Police have said in court documents that she had been identified as a suspect in a series of assaults and killings in south Kansas City. An FBI news release about Henderson said she was a "person of interest" in four or five additional homicides and up to 50 other shootings.
