Police identified the man Sunday night as Christian Emmanuel Sanon and said Moïse’s alleged killers were protecting him as the supposed president of Haiti.

The head of Haiti’s police accused Sanon of working with those who plotted and participated in Moïse’s killing but gave no information on the purported masterminds.

The police chief says Haitian authorities obtained the information from interrogations and other parts of the investigation.
