Eliza Fletcher Case: Cleotha Henderson Charged With Another ‘Unrelated’ Rape & Kidnap

The man accused of abducting and killing Eliza Fletcher is being charged in connection with another attack that is said to be unrelated to the Fletcher case, Fox News Digital reports.

On Friday, a Memphis police spokesperson told the news outlet that 38-year-old Cleotha Henderson will face additional counts of aggravated kidnapping and rape.

The spokesperson said the new charges are “unrelated” to the crimes against Fletcher, but he did not have any additional information.

Henderson is already facing charges of first-degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping for the crimes against Fletcher.

The latest charges come from a grand jury indictment handed down on Thursday, which also included a charge of unlawful carrying or possession of a weapon, according to Fox News Digital.

Authorities allege that Henderson forced the schoolteacher and mother of two into an SUV while she was out for an early morning run on September 2.

Surveillance cameras captured the SUV in the vicinity of the attack 24 minutes before it occurred.

Police arrested Henderson on Saturday, but he refused to say where Fletcher was located.

Witnesses later reported to investigators that they saw Henderson cleaning the interior of the SUV and washing clothing in a sink. Fletcher also reportedly was seriously injured in the attack and left blood inside the vehicle.

A massive search led to authorities finding Fletcher’s body on Monday in the area around where Henderson was reportedly seen cleaning out the SUV.

Information about how Fletcher died or what prompted the attack have not been released.

In total, Henderson is now facing one count of first-degree murder, aggravated rape, unlawful carrying or possession of a weapon, identity theft, tampering with evidence, and fraudulent use of a credit or debit card, and two counts of especially aggravated kidnaping and two counts of theft, Fox News Digital reports.

Henderson remains in jail without bond and is expected back in court on September 19.
