Cause of Death
The body of missing 19-year-old Amari Wise was found Monday in Pennsylvania, according to New Castle News — his death has been ruled a homicide.
“Amari Wise arrived by himself. They were hanging out for approx. 10-15 minutes when Wise started arguing with another male,” police said in the complaint. “The argument became heated and Wise was standing over the other male, who was seated on a couch. (The informant) said that Wise had a fanny pack slung across his chest. Wise told the male he ‘was going to shoot him’ and put his hand on the fanny pack. At that time Connor Henry, who was standing behind Wise, shot Wise.”
Another informant provided a description of the incident that “was relatively the same” but said that Wise’s gun was “partially removed from the fanny pack when Connor Henry shot him,” police said in the complaint.
“Amari did not deserve what they did to him,” said Dorothy Wise Weathersbe, aunt of Wise.
Henry will be extradited back to New Castle in the next couple of days.
Henry’s father, 47-year-old Todd Henry, is in jail in New Castle. He faces three criminal charges including tampering with evidence.
A witness told police that the day after Wise was killed, Henry’s father was power washing the garage floor.
Weathersbee said she believes more people were involved in her nephew’s death.
“They need to pick up everybody that’s involved,” she said. “When I say everybody, I mean everybody.”
New Castle Police Chief Bobby Salem confirmed Wise’s identity, and the coroner has since ruled Wise’s death a homicide due to a gunshot wound to the head.
