Body of Tenn. killer found

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety issued the following statement. 

A body believed to be that of Tennessee double homicide suspect Casey James Lawhorn, 22, has been located in a wooded area of Jasper County. The body has not been positively identified but was found about 100 yards from Lawhorn’s abandoned car at the 118 mile marker of Interstate 59. Several law enforcement agencies on the local, state and federal level have been in the search for Lawhorn. He used social media to announce he had murdered his mother and a friend yesterday morning in East Ridge, Tennessee. The investigation is on-going.

This is his Facebook rant. Some of the passages are missing.   Read ahead at your own risk.

The following adjectives describe the Facebook post of this young man to me: upsetting, cold, articulate, detailed, calculating, sad.

Not anything else for me to say other than I sincerely hope people around this young man's brother truly help the brother in the aftermath of this terrible event.

I find his suicide to be oddly honorable.

Don't misconstrue: it would have been preferable had he not murdered anyone to begin with.

Writes well. Sounds lucid but deranged. Now dead.

I can understand someone wanting to kill themselves and end a painful life, etc. What I don't understand is why someone who has made the decision to end his/her life has to go out and take out others beforehand. If one absolutely just has to do something, why not just kill yourself and let others control their own destiny? It is all very sad and tragic.

This is what a true psychopath sounds like: "barely felt anything".

His mom was a drunk and friend a heroin addict. I don't hear of a father in the picture(seems like that is a reoccurring theme in troubled teens), seems like there's a good possibility of more to come of the situation like other drugs or meds.

Maybe if murder were illegal this wouldn't have happened.

Posting his manifesto just allows him to win, even in death.

4:21 PM, perhaps it is giving a voice to someone who sought attention by committing heinous acts...or it may also bring some sort of understanding as to why this guy did it. It will put many theories to bed on the other hand.

It doesn't seem like he had a grand cause or anything else to promote by posting this. It seems like it was just his last statement before stepping into the fiery abyss. But, at the end of the day, this world lost a junkie, a drunk and a suicidal teen....not the world's worst outcome if you ask me.

5:49, you said it quite succinctly. Let the dead bury the dead.

The boy posted that his mom 'came home wasted', which translates to a worthless drunk whose life was of no value, according to a few of you. That's interesting.

What a sad commentary on what we as humans are capable of doing not only to ourselves but others as well. As a Christian anytime I hear of a death, I find myself first thinking about their salvation. Did they have a relationship with our Lord and Savior? Did they believe in an eternal life spent in either Heaven or Hell? Or were they like this young man, hopeless and deranged. I feel great sorrow for lives lost no matter what the circumstances are, especially when it means they might spend an eternity in hell.

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.
