New Year’s Day homicide suspect arrested

ST. LOUIS, MO. — At 11:15 a.m. Jan. 4, murder suspect Dontaye Henderson was arrested by the St. Louis Police Department’s Violent Offender Unit at the Greyhound bus terminal in St. Louis, Mo. Henderson was arrested without incident and he is being held pending extradition to Oceanside. Henderson was in possession of a handgun at the time of his arrest.
Henderson was being tracked by Oceanside Police Department detectives as he traveled on a Greyhound bus en route to St. Louis. Local police worked with St. Louis authorities to coordinate the safe arrest of Henderson as he changed buses at the terminal.
Henderson is being held on a warrant for his arrest that was issued for kidnapping and murder. The kidnapping charge was added when Henderson allegedly forced Consuelo Ramirez to drive him out of the county. Ramirez is the person who was seen driving with Henderson while police were searching for him on the day of the murder.
On Jan. 1, 2011, 25-year-old Tamara Henderson was shot and killed in her apartment. Her husband, Dontaye Henderson, was identified as the suspect. Henderson had been at large until his Jan. 4 arrest.
