On October 26, 2023, the DC Police conducted a press conference to disclose the capture of a fugitive who had escaped from the GW hospital in September. According to 7News, the suspect was apprehended after being on the run for a significant period.
On September 6, Haynes managed to escape while receiving treatment for ankle pain at the GW Hospital, just after being arrested. During this time, law enforcement officers were in the process of changing his handcuffs when he managed to escape. His escape resulted in a brief lockdown before he was able to flee.
After that incident, he has made several public appearances while trying to conceal his identity in various places. It is yet to be confirmed if any other individuals will be charged in relation to this case.
Haynes is set to face additional charges on top of the murder charge as he has also been accused of escaping.
Currently, an internal inquiry is being conducted to determine whether the officers adhered to the correct procedures for ensuring his safe transfer to the hospital.
