Arnel Joseph was killed while attacking a police patrol which had stopped the motorcycle he was on. The police responded and Arnel Joseph is dead“, said Exantus.

As per the article, Joseph was allegedly the main man of one of Haiti’s top criminal networks. He was arrested in 2019 and even tried to escape from prison last July 2020.

However, he advertised his plan to escape on social media a few days prior to his attempted escape. As such, authorities quickly thwarted his plans.
