Update on triple murder

JPD issued the following statement and photos on Twitter regarding the triple murder at Bill's Coin store on Terry Road.

Investigators are seeking to identify the driver/owner of the red Dodge Charger pictured at Bill's Coin/Pawn on yesterday afternoon.

 Kingfish note: The article below was used by the Clarion-Ledger.  JPD informed JJ that it has no suspects at this time and that the newspaper "should not have published the article".  It is not known if it is the same car or if it has positraction. 

Mississippi Coast Crimestoppers posted this information on its Facebook page:

The Clarion Ledger from Jackson, MS is stating there could possibly be a link between the Pascagoula Commercial Burglary and the triple homicide in Jackson. Will update as soon as I get more information.

Pascagoula PD is in need of your assistance to locate Jamison Layne Townsend and this unidentified male for questioning in the Commercial Burglary that occurred 12/13 or 12/14 at Sam's Jewelry.

The photo of the car is NOT the actual car used. The car used had a black scoop.

If you know Jamison's location or the identity of the male, please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-877-787-5898 or download our free app, P3 Tips.
You do not testify in court and your remain anonymous.

If you are the FIRST to contact us with her location and your tip leads to her or their arrest, you may be eligible for up to $1000.00 CASH. You could buy lots of Christmas presents!!!!!

What are you people going to do about White on White crime?

White people need to stand up and denounce this crime, lest we think all white people are complicit and capable.

I just want the police to find the preps & than heap a ton of justice on their ass. I don't care if they are red white or blue!

I don't know! This is kind of a unique thing around here. I'd say we could just follow the same solution y'all have used for black on black crime, buuuuuuuut....

No matter what color the thugs are they should face the death penalty.

No doubt Sam R Hall will provide some sort of hackneyed CYA response.

Does it matter that the suspects are white? 3 people are dead. Evil doesn't know religion,race or gender. May they Rest in Peace.

I can identify that man. His name is Robert Van Winkle. He's an Amish house flipper from Miami. At times he goes by the name Vanilla Ice.

OK, seriously, the joking needs to stop...

...collaborate and LISTEN!

When we assumed they were black, race was repeatedly injected into the discussion by blog posters. Now that we have information the suspects are white, race should not be an issue.

Well pitts I asure you all white people condemn this and most have no problem with giving them the death penalty.
The difference is white people won't be making any excuses for their behavior .
Also he looks like a thug want to be.

I, too, did business at Bill's a couple of times over the years. The folks who manned the store were always easy to deal with. I know that store has been there for quite a while and will be missed. My condolences to the families of the victims.

Visited this shop often to buy and sell coins. Always thought I got a fair deal. As a matter of fact I drove a long way past a lot of pawn shops to shop there. Last time I was in the store, about September, I asked them if they had ever been robbed and the owner said never. They had been in the area such a long time that their neighbors knew and respected them. At the time I was impressed with their inventory of quality and unique items. These were fine gentlemen who didn't deserve to die this way. They had been around for years and I am sure they watched the decline of this area and stuck it out, hoping to do some good. May they rest in peace and their killers get what is coming to them.

I enjoyed visiting Bill's shop. I used them to value a coin collection left in an estate. They were professional. I would stop in from time to time to see what they had.

My prayers for comfort for their loved ones during this holiday season.

My prayers for our community, that we realize every life matters and that we hold everyone accountable for their actions.

May God bless you all.

Mr. Bill was one of the most upstanding businessmen I ever had the pleasure of doing business with in Mississippi. I was a repeat female customer who frequented his shop to stack metal. Going to that particular neighborhood alone to purchase valuable items always made me a little nervous, but when you buy metal you have to buy from a shop you trust, and Mr. Bill ran that kind of shop that made it worth the trip. When you shopped and sold there you knew you were getting a fair deal no matter whether you were male, female, black, white, or Choctaw Indian. Not only that, during a hard time I took some of my metal back there to sell, he bought it back for what I had originally paid for it. He did not have to do that but it's just the kind of guy he was. He treated everyone with respect. There is no other shop like this in our state. I hope they catch the POS who did this and I think it's time to bring back the rope and scaffold to deal with these people.

The "looks like" photo of the car was originally published by Pascagoula PD in reference to a robbery of a pawn/jewelry store that occurred last week and is supposedly tied the murders in Jackson. That's where the photos of the suspects originate from as well. The photo of the "actual" car that is suspected to have been driven by the suspects was taken from video found at Bill's and released by JPD. Confusing. But the "faux" car photo has been picked up and used by most of the media reporting on this incident not just the CL. The female identified is from Missouri. The photo published of her from the Pascagoula pawn/jewelry store robbery matches a LinkedIn profile photo of a woman with the same name. Hope they find the killers soon. What a sad mess.

Nice My Cousin Vinny reference.

Police should go back thru all this girl's school records and find every family link, addresss and numbers. School records contain emergency contacts, family addresses and phone numbers. These records, along with social media contain information that can lead to their location.

They've identified them both and talked to her family, who seem scared. Update is on the CL website. The man is currently out on bond for an August burglary and illegal use of weapon charge that occurred in Missouri. Classy couple. Just pray they don't kill anyone else before they are captured.

Well, actually, NEITHER suspect is what most of us would consider "white". Jamison, the female, is some sort of mixed-breed. Garcia is Hispanic, and not a "White Hispanic".

But truly: even if both of them were blue-eyed blond Presbyterians, with ancestry going back to Alfred The Great and the Domesday Book, considering their hideous crime (and assuming they're guilty), every white person I know, would wish them dead, ASAP. No excuses: if they did what they're accused of, they need to be removed from this world.

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.

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.
