Not ready for prime time?

The murder of little Kingston Frazier was nothing short of evil. The Jackson metro area was paralyzed.  A family was devastated and traumatized.  Grown men and women cried when the news of the murder was reported.  Seasoned cops said it was the worst day of their careers. However, the Hinds County Sheriff's handling of the case raised questions not to be ignored.  A suspect was released.  The Amber Alert was not submitted for several hours.  Public statements were made that weren't true but were later called mistakes. Law enforcement should never be above reproach and the murder of Kingston Frazier is no exception. 

The day's horror began when Ebony Archie stopped at the Kroger on I-55N around 1:00 AM (May 18).  Police sources say she was at the Last Call bar prior to going to Kroger.  She left her child in the car with the engine running.  However, there was no real need to do so as the temperature that night happened to be rather cool and reached a low of 68 degrees.

The three suspects - Dewan Wakefield, Jr., DeAllen Washington, and Byron McBride, Jr. - just happened to be cruising the parking lot -up to no good - while she was inside Kroger.  McBride allegedly stole the vehicle with Kingston still in the car even though there were two deputies working the Kroger security detail at that time of night.  The child was alive when McBride drove out of the parking lot.  It is not known if either deputy was present in the parking lot when the kidnapping took place.

It should be noted that JPD provided all public information about the case until Kingston's body was found even though it was the Hinds County Sheriff's Office's case .  It was JPD Chief Lee Vance who held a quick press conference to get information to the public about the kidnapping so the child could be saved.  HCSO had a duty to inform the public and enlist its help yet was more than happy to let JPD pick up the ball and run with it.

Readers know the rest of the events which took place that tragic day.  The car and  Kingston's bullet-riddled body were found on a road in Gluckstadt later that morning.  Police arrested the three suspects later that day. However, the Sheriff's handling of the case raised several questions. 

The Madison Sheriff's Office charged DeAllen Washington and the other two suspects with capital murder.  However, DeAllen Washington turned himself in to Sheriff Mason.  The Hinds County Sheriff inexplicably released Washington so he could surrender to the Madison County Sheriff:

Sheriff Mason refused to answer any questions or provide any explanation for his actions.  He flippantly told the reporters present to go talk to Sheriff Tucker.

Understand what happened in the video.  The Hinds County Sheriff released a capital murder suspect, a 17 year-old youth who is suspected of taking part in the murder of a six-year-old child.  Washington was not handcuffed.  Hinds County deputies did not transport him to Canton nor did Sheriff Mason keep him in custody until Madison County deputies could come get him.   The Sheriff simply turned him loose and told him to go to Canton.  Don't forget to stop by Mickie D's and get a happy meal.   More than a few law enforcement officials contacted this correspondent to express their outrage at his release.   Releasing Washington was inexcusable.  The Sheriff owed the public an explanation but instead told the media to basically get lost. 

However, the Sheriff stirred things up some more at a press conference held at 5:30 PM later that day at the Madison County Sheriff's Office.  Sheriff Mason said:

At approximately around 2:30 this morning, we had one of our deputies working at the Kroger, he witnessed a female coming out of the store, and they made eye contact and she mentioned, my car is missing.  Uh, at that time, that deputy, he drew a case number for the report and at that time we felt it was an auto theft not knowing the part about the child in the back. Uh, when we found out later it was a child in the back, we immediately notified Highway Patrol and put out an Amber Alert. 

Unfortunately, Sheriff Mason's statement does not coincide with the facts.  HCSO dispatch notified JPD of the auto theft and kidnapping at 1:28 AM.  JPD dispatch  notified all JPD units to be on the lookout for the stolen car with a seven year-old baby at 1:37 AM (10:10 in the audio posted below).  (The minutes referred to in the timeline are the time in the recording. The actual clip is 30 minutes.  For example, the 1:37 AM bulletin took place at ten minutes and ten seconds in the audio recording posted below.)

Timeline of radio calls

10:10 vehicle was just stolen from a kroger’s parking lot with a 7 year-old baby in tag info, Silver Camry Toyota
11:35 was the child in the car?  Unit notifies dispatch he is at East Frontage Road and Beasley looking for the car.
11:42 be advised 2007 toyota camry…tinting window..she did leave keys in the vehicle.
12:12 Bolo for silver Toyota camry with 7 yo child.
16:29 7 yo boy’s name is Kingston Frazier

It is not known why the Sheriff claimed his deputy was not told about the theft and kidnapping until 2:30 AM.  Two Hinds County Deputies were working at Kroger on a private security detail.  One was working inside of the store.  The other deputy was supposedly watching the parking lot.  The kidnapping took place.  JPD was notified at 1:28 AM by HCSO.  Commander Tyree Jones arrived to the scene at 2:30 AM.  JPD also issued this tweet at 2:28 AM:

The Clarion-Ledger reported:
Mason could not provide details about his statements that Archie did not immediately tell the deputy her son was in the car. He said he would have to check with the supervisor who had been on duty to get that information, despite having said it Thursday.  Article.
Sheriff Mason defended his statement on Facebook:
In one of the initial news conferences that was held, I reflected on a time frame that was relayed to me by my officer in the field. I reported what I was briefed on by the supervisors on the scene. While I shared approximate times, the information remained the same and those time lines have been cleared up now. Even after going through the approximate time lines on our radio system, interviews had to be conducted, and every moment was precious. We sought to include all pertinent and accurate details. We did all that was necessary to conclude the investigation, despite what you may be hearing.
It's the deputy's fault.  Got it.  The Sheriff's statement at the press conference caused more outrage to be directed towards the mother.  His statement caused many people to assume she was in Kroger for over an hour while her child was in a car with the engine running.  The comments made about her were not too nice in their nature.   The statement also expects one to believe that a mother, even if intoxicated, wouldn't at first tell the police that her child was kidnapped, a statement that was belied by JPD bulletins.

However, the excuses did not stop with Facebook postings.  More questions were raised when it was discovered that the Mississippi Highway Patrol did not receive the Amber Alert activation form until after 4:00 AM - more than 2 1/2 hours after Kingston's kidnapping. 

Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain said the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation received the Amber Alert notice at 4:06 AM and issued the alert twenty minutes later.  That was nearly three hours after JPD got the notification from HCSO.   The Clarion-Ledger reported in the same article:

Mason said part of the delay was due to trouble getting information about the car. Archie told authorities the car was not in her name because it had been bought from another person.

“These people bought the car from someone else, so the car was not registered to them. We had to get the information about the car,” Mason said. “The lady couldn’t tell us nothing because the car wasn’t registered to her. We had to take time to figure out the license number and serial number and everything.” Article

There is just one problem: the tag number is not required but JPD posted the license plate number on Twitter at 2:28 AM - over an hour and a half before MHP received the Amber Alert activation form. JPD issued an APB at 1:37 AM that stated the vehicle was a Silver Toyota Camry and that was 2 1/2 hours before the activation form was submitted to MHP.  JPD actually sent out three messages to its units in less than ten minutes that stated the same description of the vehicle and two of them stated  a kidnapping had taken place.

The Sheriff's claim that the alert was delayed because it took some time for deputies to obtain the license plate information is either not true or shows a lack of knowledge of how the requests for such alerts are processed.

However, the registration information is not required on the  Amber Alert activation criteria checklist. The checklist is posted below.  The first page has five "yes or no" questions.  Link to Amber Alert activation form. It also states:

The alert must contain a description and photograph of the child, a description of the suspect or  suspect vehicle, as well as the details of the abduction. Law enforcement should carefully consider not initiating an alert if there is not specific information for the public to use to assist in the recovery.
There is no requirement for a VIN or license plate number for the vehicle.  Such information is obviously useful and needed but the alert can be issued without this information.  The second page asks for additional information such as the identifying information of the child, basic information upon when and where the incident occurred, and additional useful information if available.

So let's get this straight.  The kidnapping takes place around 1:00 AM.  JPD is notified at 1:28 AM and issues an APB that contains a vehicle description at 1:37 AM, and repeats it again a few minutes later.  JPD tweeted the description, the kidnapping, and license plate number at 2:28 AM.  However, the Hinds County Sheriff's Office does not submit a completed Amber Alert Activation form until 4:08 AM. The Sheriff claims the delay was because it took deputies awhile to obtain the tag number, even though the information was obtained before 2:30 AM.  He also claims the mother didn't tell the deputy at first that her child was kidnapped, although the Archie family says that is not true. The  JPD bulletins mention the kidnapping and Kingston's name.  The Sheriff sets free a capital murder suspect in the case and tells him to go turn  himself in to the Madison Sheriff.  He next claims at the press conference that the mother didn't notify deputies until 2:30 AM and then weren't told at first about the kidnapping of Kingston Frazier.  He thus blames the mother for the delays and his deputies as well.

The question that must be asked after reviewing the case : Is the Sheriff in over his head?


Anonymous said...

This is probably a stupid question, but why would this be HCSO's case? The Kroger is in Jackson, does JPD cede jurisdiction just because HCSO is working security?

Anonymous said...

Of course the SHERIFF'S in over his head, this whole incident was a debacle from the start.
Starting with the incompetence and laziness with his Deputies at Krogers, to his lieing at the press conference not once but twice and the releasing of the suspect instead of Madison S.O coming to transport for Victor.

Victor refuses to face his lies, but runs and hides to allow someone else to write it on social media.

COWARD! You will not get Re- Elected.

HCSO made the first report. It happened under their watch. That should make it HCSO's. JPD doesn't come and steal cases if they didn't have initial contact.

Anonymous said...

Is that the reason the auto theft/kidnapping does not show up on the COMSTAT listing, because it fell under HCSO for some reason? Looks like there was an auto burglary in the 4800 block of I55 N on 5/18,

I55N 4800 AutoBurg 5/18/2017

Also have an auto theft reported 5/17 at 4800 Old Canton Road. Any chance of a connection?

Anonymous said...

Right 8:17 Is it that easy to "hand off" a case in Jackson's jurisdiction to the most incompetent HCSO? I don't think this case was going to end up any better, but it does exhibit incompetence on both departments. You have got to be kidding me when you are saying a confessed hijacker and murder participant is told to drive over to the Madison co. sheriff's dept.

Hinds County Sheriff Office has become a joke since Sheriff Mac left office. I was hoping Sheriff Mason would come in and get things done, but it has become a bigger "JOKE" than when Sheriff Tyrone was there!!!!

Anonymous said...

JPD has always refused to answer calls at Krogers because the Sheriff's Office works there. Plus, the Deputy on shift at Krogers was too inexperienced to know any better in what to do.

JPD's theory is, if we're not working it and getting paid for it, it's yours to work.

They do the same at all Details the Sheriff's Office works inside the Cities limits.

I don't blame JPD.

This thread by The Kingfish, to me, has several gaping holes that could be inaccuracies.

1) Kingfish has more than once assured us the boy was alive in the back seat in the Kroger parking lot. How does The Kingfish know this to be factual? What direct and specific evidence is there of that claim by The Kingfish?

2) The Hinds County Sheriff, whether competent or incompetent, has said consistently that the mother did not initially report that the child was in the car. So, Kingfish decides to lend credibility to one or members of the Archie family (who were at home in bed supposedly) who claim she DID advise them of the child being in the car.

How does The Kingfish explain relying on a comment(s) from family members who were not even present but who obviously have a stake in their version being believed?

3) Why has The Kingfish, our humble correspondent, consistently refused to question (if even to himself) where the mother was in that store for over an hour, what was she purchasing, where is the receipt, where was her bag of items and why was her cell-phone not confiscated and examined to see what, if any, calls she made or received just prior to leaving the night-club or while in Kroger? And if the mother was walking around inside the store for over an hour, did the deputy who 'was assigned to patrol inside the store' see her or report having seen her?

4) Why has The Kingfish expressed zero interest in finding out whether the three boys under arrest were at the nightclub, what their gang association might be or if others closely related (by social affiliations - gangs) to these boys were at the club birthday party given for the mother.

Looks to me as if The Kingfish has bought the story provided by the family and is also convinced by something a teenager in jail for murder might have said the morning he was jailed.

In his haste to 'convict' the Hinds County Sheriff for being a bumbling idiot, it would seem Kingfish is letting other parties escape scrutiny.

I will now step pack and prepare my bunker for the incoming sorties recommending in no certain order, "get your own blog", "Kingfish has worn out a lot of shoe leather", "Nobody can top Kingfish", "Go away with your nonsense" and "The Archie family is entirely trustworthy and to be believed".

Oh...I almost forget the incoming from "Spooner For Sheriff".

Tell you what sport, when more facts come out at the preliminary hearing and in evidence presented in open court, you can trash me all you want if I am wrong.

The kid was alive when they left Kroger. That is all I"m going to say. I'm not going to burn sources or reveal evidence that can compromise a case. The only reason I am putting that information out there is because clowns like you were getting on Facebook and saying that the kid played with a gun and killed himself or that the mother arranged the kidnapping. The kid was alive when they left Kroger and he did not play with a gun.

I'd gladly have Sheriff Tyrone back. He wasn't as effective as Mac, but certainly wasn't this incompetent.

I'd vote Elmer Fudd for Sheriff over this joke.

Sees Top-Water Reporting said...

I've said nothing at any time about the kid playing with a gun or the mother arranging a kidnapping. How about instead of fabricating crap like that you address the questions I specifically raised in my post immediately above yours?

The deputy in the store, the mother's cell phone, the items purchased in the store, the receipt, the statements you bought from the family. Run from those if you choose. Sport.

The red flag to me is that JPD and HCSO don't have a more integrated response to such things

Newsflash! You've already 'compromised a case' if you are suggesting on an open blog that you have been given privileged, confidential evidence in a murder case. I'm sure you realize you can be subpoenaed and deposed.

I realize reporters, I mean correspondents, like to say "I have it on good authority" and "According to sources"....

@9:20, wow! Maybe, just maybe, Kingfishs sources are LE dummy. I love how your making a futile attempt in defending Victor or any of his dummies working for him.

Obviously, some of us who do respond to this, do work on the inside of LE. So it's really entertaining to hear your silliness jibber jabber defending HCSO.

Fortunately this time, JPD did do their job Well, when HCSO, should've been the primary agency leading the case.

Thank God! Michael Guest will actually be prosecutig these animals, instead of Robert Smith, in sorry ass Hinds County and be prosecuted in a timely manner.

So, if your one of Victors Investigators, nice try in deflecting, even tho you do know the story and your trying to put out FAKE news..

Still just making the HCSO look like the ass clown bafoons they are.

Sounds like a defense attorney decided to post on here. The whole case makes me saddened beyond belief. For the victim, for his family and for the wasted lives of the kidnapper/murderers. Youth filled with anger and pseudo feelings of power and control and not enough compassion to spare an innocent life. Will any of their running mates even see the evil? Will any of them change? I heard the other day that about 300 of Jackson's youths are committing almost all of the mayhem in our City. We need to get on their cases and never let up. So do their families and so do their pastors and so do their schools. I really don't care if they are "profiled". Let's just list them and make their lives hell until they either die or straighten up. Maybe this could help break the downward spiral of their destruction to themselves, to younger children, and to the entire region. They live like terrorist among us.

I am the poster who previously, in another thread, corrected Kingfish and attempted to explain the Amber Alert Activation process since it was reported in a cursory, sterile light. In practical terms, in cases such as this, a proper vehicle description is necessary.

The sheriff alluded that a description was not made available by the mother. The sheriff also stated that the original notice to the HCSO deputy was of only a stolen vehicle and not of a kidnapping.

The JPD dispatch logs dispute both of these public posits from the Sheriff.

Sees Top-water Reporting,

1) Kingfish stated this was from a LE source. It's a moot point as the fact will be revealed, regardless if it's true or not. The coroner's repot will confirm one way or another. It's your red herring, eat it.

2) The HCSO consistently said the mother did not report the child was in the car, yet JPD dispatch notices unarguably shows this to not be true. It has nothing to do with what family members stated, but with the fact that the first reports states a 7yo baby was taken. Again, this is another of your red herrings, eat again.

3) It has been shown that the mother was not in the store for over an hour. That "storyline" was created by the Sheriff misstating facts, either intentionally or unintentionally. Yet again, this is something simply and easily disputed, now and when more information is made available. If she arrived at 1:00ish, and the first notice from HCSO to JPD of theft and kidnapping was at 1:28, then it plainly disputes your storyline. Another red herring. You'll be getting full pretty soon.

4) Kingfish's lack of stating something that may not be true does not equate to "zero interest." Facts will come out and any affiliations founded in fact will come out.

Lastly, if you can't view the given facts without questioning the professional credibility of the HCSO at this point, then your personal agenda or overwhelming bias is blinding you.

The HCSO did not contribute to the death of this child. But it mishandled the situation, at a bare minimum.

Anonymous said...

"Sees Top-Water Reporting" you really are a dumb SOB, aren't you??? Look, idiot...the post CLEARLY lays out the time line from JPD.

At 1:28 AM they announced "vehicle was just stolen from a kroger’s parking lot with a 7 year-old baby in tag info, Silver Camry Toyota".

Now....just how do you think they knew - at 1:28 - that there was a child in the car....unLESS....the person who reported the car missing TOLD them?????

And, OBVIOUSLY, if JPD already knew by 1:28, then the mother was NOT in the store for "over an hour" if she only arrived there at 1:00 AM (they have video cameras, you know) then, finished her shopping, discovered her car missing AND reported it to HCSO who, in turn reported it to JPD and JPD put out their bulletin - ALL within 28 minutes.

As for all that other crap you think Kingfish is obligated to investigate and report....REALLY??? Since WHEN did that become HIS responsibility??

As I said, you really ARE a dumb SOB.

To Recap: said...

Amazing the number of you Monday Morning QBs who first cite evidence from the JPD, then want to talk about the record provided by HCSO and finally defend this blog for claiming to know what was going on when the three to five agencies involved disagree on at least five major points.

The facts are NOT all out there and anybody who thinks the investigation is over simply wants closure and doesn't give a rat's ass about the guilty people who will skate. Several years back Kingfish claimed to have secret knowledge regarding the young girl who was finally found dead in the woods in Madison. Nothing was ever resolved. Total speculation still.

I would not know V. Mason if I saw him in Kroger and am glad the prosecution will be handled by MADCO if those are the only two alternatives.

Lots of wannabee lawyers opining here and several pretending to be LEO. Meanwhile Kingfish can't decide which version he supports....those not yet revealed to him, Hinds SO, Madison SO, JPD or his own.

So, to recap: The Hinds SO log and 'facts' are nonseense. Mason is incompetent. JPD's Vance is suddenly competent. The JPD log has got to be true. The two deputies at Kroger can't be found and have not commented. The mother was Drunk. The mother was sober and merely shopping for medicine after midnight. The kid was shot at the club while in the car. The kid was alive at Kroger. She Sheriff of Hinds is incompetent. Vance must have it correct since KF says he does. The Madison County SO knows the facts and will only release them to Kingfish. And, finally....a handful of goobers on this blog think they know shit that nobody else knows.

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.
