Man kills g/f with shotgun

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following press release:

Rankin County Man Charged with New Year’s Eve Murder

On December 31st, 2016 at approximately 5:20 p.m., the Rankin County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call from 115 Chain Lane Pelahatchie, MS, which is near the Crossroads Community. The caller stated that a female at the residence had accidentally shot herself in the chest.

Rankin County Deputies along with Rankin County Constable Gary Windham, Walters Fire Department and Pafford Ambulance Service responded to the address. When first responders arrived on scene, they found a 42 yoa female with a shotgun wound to the chest. Medical personnel performed CPR but were unable to revive the victim who passed away at the scene. Rankin County Sheriff’s Department Investigators responded and began to process the residence as a crime scene due to the suspicious circumstances surrounding the shooting.

The victim’s roommate, John Preston FINCH, had inconsistencies in his stories. After consulting with District Attorney Michael Guest, FINCH was placed under arrest and transported to the Rankin County Jail. Rankin County Coroner David Ruth responded to the scene and recovered the victim’s body; he has requested an autopsy on the deceased. Coroner David Ruth has identified the victim as Amy Renee STEWART 42yoa female who was living at the same address as FINCH.

FINCH is being charged with Murder and will appear before District Attorney Michael Guest and Rankin County Court Judge Kent McDaniel for an Initial Appearance.

This investigation is ongoing, but no additional arrests are anticipated.

When tragedy such as this occurs it leaves so many questions and pain for the families. If people would just think, cool down and talk through their problems instead of resorting to violence.

Many people are saying she needed killing.....I'm not saying that....but many many people

I can't imagine the mess a shotgun blast makes. Ugh! Who is going to clean it up? The answer my friend is blowing in the wind. The answer is blowing in the wind.

No, dummy, the answer is not blowin' in the wind. There are commercial businesses who tend to this task just as there are businesses that will clean up your house after flooding.

I doubt this double-wide can afford a professional detailing...

Other than the first comment, it's kinda pathetic that other folks want to make light of a woman being murdered.

In Summary.. said...

Exactly; A person is dead and another is charged with murder. Out of the woodwork we have people claiming she needed killin' and the place must be a double-wide with blood everywhere. All three posts are indicative of people who don't give a shit about anything but themselves.

So, to summarize, given the 'facts' at hand, her life had no value.

For anyone saying that "she needed killing" will rot in hell for those comments. That woman meant the world to many people. She was a very loving and caring woman who stood behind that man for many years and supported him and then he carelessly took her life for nothing. He is nothing but a scumbag that will also rot in hell for his actions. He should not get the easy way out! He should have to pay every day for what he done to that lady. She should not have been the one who left this world, he should have been. I hope they throw the book at him and he never gets out to see the light of day again. He dont deserve it.

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.
