Yazoo murder solved

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety issued the following press release:

After nearly two years, agents of the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation have solved the murder case of 57-year-old Ricky Saxton. One person is in custody in Yazoo County and a second suspect is at large and is considered to be armed and dangerous. 

Johnny Mack Brown, 36, of 726 Fillmore Street in Yazoo City is the subject of a manhunt in Yazoo County. His wife, Shontina Brown, 23, of 620 East Jefferson Street in Yazoo City is being held in jail in Yazoo County. 

“This has been a difficult case,” MBI Director Lt. Col. Larry Waggoner said. “Our investigators have been doggedly pursuing leads and working tirelessly to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice.”

MBI agents are requesting your help locating Johnny Mack Brown (see photograph). If anyone has information regarding the whereabouts of Brown call MBI at 601-987-1530.

November 13, 2013, Saxton was shot in the head in a field in a remote part of Yazoo County.

This is wonderful news. I've agonized over this murder since it happened, knowing the killer(s) is still among us. I've grieved for Mr. Saxton and his family, although I don't know them. He was a common man doing his job, answering a call in his wrecker, just like he had done hundreds of times before. I thought this would never be solved.

Hate crime

Hate crime indeed! I think you must really hate something in order to kill it.

I'm amazed and saddened that solving this crime gets no more attention here than three or four comments. This was one of the most horrible, unsolved murders in our ten county area in the past four or five years. Yet we tilt at the windmills of photos of an old woman and we mumble at length about a fat idiot in a city council seat.

R.I.P. Mr. Saxton.

No one wants to talk about it because it was a white man murdered by a black man. Not that it should make a damn bit of difference, but we're being trained to move along if it doesn't fit the current agenda. If the killer would have been a cop it would be a different story.

Know it won't bring Mr. Saxton back, but these two deserve the death penalty.

Since I've known it all along, but haven't been able to say it since there's no proof: Yet ANOTHER senseless black on white killing.
Good job MBI.

Now, how come the racist police Chief in West Point has only arrested three members of the black mob that tried to kill Ralph Weems?

If you really want an entertaining evening, read the comments being made on the facebook pages of the three TV stations in Jacktown. Thousands of posts by minorities claiming the case got attention only because Saxton was white and many claiming the perp was set up because he's black. I am almost tired of being amazed at the ignorance and racism present on those pages.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
