Henry headed back to Washington County

Accused killer Daniel Henry may be back in Washington County this week.
Henry is charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of his parents and aunt on Oct. 3. After fleeing the state, he was apprehended less than 24 hours later in Louisiana where he had checked into a New Orleans hotel under his own name and address.
During an extradition hearing held a couple of days later, Henry signed a waiver indicating he would not challenge his return to Tennessee.
After the necessary paperwork was completed, Sheriff Ed Graybeal said, a call was placed Oct. 8 to the transport unit that is contracted to return accused felons to the appropriate jurisdictions. According to Graybeal, the transport must be completed within 10 days after the call.
Henry will be taken to the Detention Center upon his arrival in Jonesborough. “We will then serve the warrant and schedule a court date for his arraignment,” Graybeal said.
Henry allegedly confessed to killing his family during a phone call he made to a friend in California the night of the shootings.
She then called 911, and that office contacted the Washington County 911.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to Henry’s residence at 123 Skyline Road to conduct a welfare check and found victims Robert Kenneth Henry, 66; Melody Diane Henry, 55; and Barbara June Hammonds, 64.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation put Henry on its Most Wanted list, and his name was posted in the National Crime Information Center database.
A joint effort of the WCSO, TBI and U.S. Marshals Office led officers to Louisiana where the state and local police assisted in the capture.
Henry was taken into custody without incident.
