USP Lee inmate indicted on murder charges while in prison

A man serving a 210 month sentence for felony bank robbery at USP Lee has been indicted for first-degree murder.

Larry Pierce, 33, is charged in the death of 23 year-old Josue Barclay who died of a gunshot wound to the head in April of 2009. Dover Police Department described Mr. Barclay’s death as murder at the time, but identified no suspect and asked for the public’s help in providing information. Pierce was arrested later that month after a traffic stop after two loaded handguns were thrown and recovered during a foot chase with officers. However, there was not enough evidence at the time to bring a charge in the shooting. Continued investigation by Dover Police for approximately seven years uncovered enough evidence to seek an indictment in the murder case.

Pierce is currently being held at USP Lee for bank robberies in Nevada and Delaware. If convicted, Pierce would be extradited to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center near Smyrna.
