CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A St. Thomas man wanted for attempted murder has been returned to the territory to face the music here.

Jahani Joseph, 25, faces attempted murder and first-degree assault charges.

Joseph was involved in an automobile accident in Georgia and police there identified him as a wanted fugitive from the Virgin Islands in the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database.

Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) detectives took an early Christmas boondoggle to Atlanta to collect Joseph there.

He was returned to St. Thomas on Tuesday. Further details about the auto accident were not available.

Unable to post $450,000 bail Joseph was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections  pending an advice of rights hearing.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
