Reggae exec Dennis Graham arrested for 2002 murder of Winston King

An open murder case in Maryland moved ahead this week as a reggae music executive was arrested at JFK airport for an incident which occurred in 2002. The fugitive had created a new identity and eluded officials for over a decade.

Global Dispatch 200x119Kevin Reynolds, who allegedly changed his identity to become “Dennis Graham,” was arrested for the shooting death of Winston King by federal marshals. King was shot in front of his screaming 11-year-old daughter and Reynolds has been on the “run” since the Bush administration.

Since then the murder suspect crafted his new identity and climbed the ranks at popular reggae and dancehall music label 21st Hapilos Digital Distribution that lists offices on Madison Avenue as well as in Jamaica, law enforcement sources told The NY Post.

“Reynolds obtained new paperwork and passports and settled in Canarsie, Brooklyn while helping run the music company,” the article notes.

Sources said he even managed to fly freely from New York to Jamaica and back without detection until he was finally busted this weekend while waiting to board a flight to Kingston.

Reynolds and another man reportedly approached King and his daughter in a parking lot outside of their apartment in Maryland in November 2002. The daughter heard the gunshots after he dragged King away and then sources say the pair just drove away.

Twelve years later, Reynolds is expected to be extradited to Maryland to face murder charges.
