New York Suspect Arrested in Alabama

We have new details on a convicted New York City killer who went on the run for more than 16 years - and then settled in Montgomery. The man known as Rashad Hamid built a new life here starting in 1992. And it looks like Alabama authorities had plenty of chances to find him before last week.

We have contacted both Montgomery and New York officials to look into Hamid's background.

By now, WSFA 12 news viewers know his real name is Derrick Lloyd. The trail he left behind before his arrest is pretty impressive.

Lloyd is wanted in New York City for two felony murder counts - and in Albany, New York for two robbery counts.

We looked into his criminal background and discovered he had not one but two speeding tickets, the first in 1992 and the second in 2000.

Law enforcement never discovered his falsified driver's license in either case.

He also ran a business on Fairview avenue - the Montgomery shuttle service, and he became acquainted with some lawmen.

When we looked up his business licence at City Hall, the clerks could not find a valid record that he had ever paid to do business.

so, somehow, Derrick Lloyd came to Montgomery, got a driver's license, opened a business, knew police officers, even got married and took a new job - and no one ever suspected a thing.

Rheem officials confirmed Lloyd worked there and went undetected. He remains in the Montgomery County Jail on no bond. The district attorney's office says they have yet to receive a fugitive warrant on Lloyd...or extradition papers.
