Fugitive murder suspect arrives in Md.

By Dan Morse

Henry Chavez, described by police in Mongtomery County as a 3-foot, 11-inch tall suspect wanted for a May 2010 murder, was to appear before Montgomery County authorities Thursday morning, corrections officials said.

Chavez was recently apprehended in El Salvador and transported to a jail in Texas. He was scheduled to see a court commissioner today, and likely will appear before a District Court judge on Friday.

I heard that he was working as a fortune teller. A small medium at large!

I bet he didn't have any problem squirming under the fence.

3-foot, 11-inch tall suspect? How old is he?

He was found on a beach in El Salvador standing next to a Ricardo Montalban look alike shouting, "Da plane, da plane!"

You all may think this is a big joke, but his teammates on his Four Feet and Under team will struggle without him. He was known as Tree in that league.
