Joseph Badio considered one of the main suspects in the killing of President Jovenel Moïse, was arrested Thursday in the neighborhood of Pétion-Ville, National Police spokesman Garry Desrosiers said.
Joseph Félix Badio, 60, was captured in broad daylight while driving an S.U.V. out of a supermarket parking lot in Pétion-Ville.
The suspect , wearing a dark suit, appeared defiant as several shouting police officers surrounded and pointed rifles at him.
Badio emerged as a key suspect about a week after the assassination, in which a team of Colombian commandos hired by a Miami-area security firm stormed Jovenel Moise’s home, gunning him down and wounding former first lady, Martine Moïse.
