Accused killer of Lee Kendrick now in custody.

Walter Lee Young surrendered to JPD after he was charged with capital murder in the death of 81 year-old Lee Kendrick.  Young is 21.  Young contacted Hinds County Sheriff candidate Victor Mason and turned himself in to police with Mr. Mason's assistance.  Kendrick was shot to death last week in a vacant unit at the Cedarstone Apartments in North Jackson.

Police also arrested and charged Loren Shell, 24,  with capital murder last week. Several law enforcement sources told JJ she is a prostitute.  Kendrick's Buick sedan was stolen after the murder and recovered in Jefferson County.  Security camera video at a Jackson gas station showed Shell getting out of the Buick and into another car.

Oh! So now she's a prostitute, a rumor given credence simply because it was told by a policeman?

Why would a prostitute and a punk-boy kill an old man and leave him in an abandoned apartment building? What was the gain? If she was a hooker and he her pimp, they could make more in two nights than that old car was worth.

Life has no value, morality no compass, greed no boundary.

So why was he with a prostitute in an apartment known for that activity?

He was kidnapped at gunpoint, Brainiac.

You two are slow. Probably she asked the victim for help to lure him away, and that was fatal. A car, whatever he had, maybe an ATM trip or two?

Looking at her, she wouldn't make that in two months. And go to Walter's FB page, pics of $28 and a joint and 13 pills-- he would kill anyone for a $2k car. Blame the victim, an 81yo man? You should be ashamed, wait for the pitiful truth to come out: you can get killed in jacktown for NO reason and next to nothing valuable ...

where was he when he was kidnapped at gunpoint?

That will come out as the investigation proceeds, Brainiac #2.

Didn't hear this from law enforcement but from someone who knows a family member of the woman. She is a known prostitute and has been in trouble with the law before this.

I did not know Mr. Kendricks or his family. I assume he was either kidnapped at gunpoint or lured by a hard-luck story.

Regardless, it's just a damn crying shame. Killed an 81-year old man for a few bucks and an old car. No regard for human life. Did these subhumans honestly think they were going to get away scot free?

What in the hell has happened to our society.

For the Turd-In-The-Punch-Bowl at 8:14: Pay attention, Shorty. Nobody blamed this on the old gentleman. The old gentleman was a victim in every possible way. Just as any of the rest of us might be on any given day.

@3:01 - I'm no authority, but I doubt a Jackson hooker makes more in one two nights than a 2003 buick is worth. That's a lot of $10 dolla hollas!

I could have been Mr Kendricks. Had a guy knock on my door and wanted to make some money. We agreed that he would rake leaves, which he did.
Then he said his ride wasn't coming, and asked if I'd drive him home. I stupidly agreed and ended up in a sketchy area of west Jackson.
Luckily, this guy had no ill intent. It could have gone very bad.

So I was stupid and lucky that day.

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.
