A 63-year-old Haitian-born Florida resident has been arrested as a top suspect in the July 7 assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse, according to multiple reports.

Christian Emmanuel Sanon, a self-identified doctor, joins a list of more than two dozen people who have been accused of having a role in the president’s killing, according to ABC News.

A US delegation that traveled to the country on Sunday said that “there is a lack of clarity about the future of political leadership” in Haiti.

A majority of the Haitian Parliament is calling on a new government to replace interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph, according to The New York Times.

ABC News was unable to verify if Sanon is in fact a licensed physician.
