SPRINGWATER – Richard ‘Boo’ Henry was apprehended on Wednesday after running from police, apparently being helped by multiple other people since last Friday, July 31, and hitching a ride with his girlfriend, Shannon Goodwin.
According to news partner 13WHAM, the six-day manhunt ended after law enforcement received a tip that Henry, 35, was in Springwater and the area was searched heavily for the past 24 hours.
Henry was taken into custody with Goodwin, 43, in her Jeep Liberty in the woods near the intersection of Harpers Ferry Road at Carney Hollow Road in Springwater at around 8 a.m. Wednesday. Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty said that Henry had removed his zip ties within hours of his fleeing the Deputies on Friday.
Henry was arraigned in Mount Morris Town court and charged with Assault in the Second Degree, a D felony, and Escape in the Second Degree, an E felony, by felony complaint as well as the Violation of Parole charge that brought Sheriff’s Deputies to Henry’s camp last Friday.
The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office reports that a Deputy injured his knee, causing tendon damage, while going over a fence in pursuit of Henry.
Henry’s girlfriend is currently being questioned and she will be charged. The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office says that she was also with Boo the day that he ran from police.
According to jail records, Goodwin was charged with Hindering Prosecution and is held at the Livinston County Jail on $10,000 bond.
Sheriff Dougherty told 13WHAM that he believes others helped Henry along the way and that more people could be charged in connection to this incident.
According to jail records, Henry is currently held at the Livingston County jail without bail.
Sheriff Dougherty thanked and commended the New York State Division of Parole for their help in the search, as well as the Sheriff’s Office’s Federal and State partners and the help received from the community.
“Thank you to all of our Federal, State and Local law enforcement agencies who assisted,” posted the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office to Facebook. “It was a team effort from the beginning to the end.”
A press conference is scheduled for tomorrow, August 6.
