U.S. Marshals Task Force Arrest Attempted Murder Suspect in Niceville

The U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force from Pensacola arrested an Alabama man this afternoon who is wanted for luring a another man into the woods where he had planned to kill him and then bury him in a grave he already dug up.

Nicholas Wayne Hamlett, 31, is wanted on charges of Attempted Murder, Kidnapping and Menacing after tricking the man into following him into a wooded area where he had planned to beat the man to death. Hamlett had a baseball bat, zip ties, gasoline, a bag of lime and a pre-made hole intended to be the man’s grave waiting for him.

According to reports, Hamlett first beat the man and then tied him up with the zip ties. However, at some point the unidentified man apparently broke free and beat Hamlett so severely he was in a coma for about two weeks. Hamlett was arrested without incident by Marshals and Task Force Officers from Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office and the Niceville Police Department at an apartment complex on the 700 Block of Palm Blvd., in Niceville.
