Stabbed to Death in Northpointe

JPD issued the following statement. 


Jackson Police are investigating a fatal stabbing that occurred on Northpointe Parkway just before 10:00am this morning. 

Officers responded to the Trails located in the 600 block.  When they arrived, they found an unresponsive black male inside one of the units. There was also a black female present. 

The victim appeared to have suffered a stab wound to the upper part of his chest and was later pronounced dead.  He has since been identified as 26-year-old, Eric Gilmer. 

The female, who is believed to be the girlfriend of the victim, was detained and later transported for questioning. Her identity is not yet being released. 

It is still unknown what took place inside the apartment unit prior to Gilmer’s death. 

Charges could be forthcoming.

Isn’t that right across the street from the CCJ/JCC, home of Lamar Adams?

The Trails used to be a fun place to live back in the early '90's. They used to have a volleyball net across the pool. We played many games of volleyball and tons of beer. Strange thing though. All that beer was consumed and nobody ever got out of the pool to go pee. Hmmmm

Jackson is lost!

I remember when those apartments were nice.

This is why we left Jackson for Madison county. Best decision we ever made

How much you wanna bet they knew each other?

Well look out Madison County, Soon Jackson will be so run down that there will be no choice left but to head for the glorified strip malls of Hwy 51 / 463.

I use to pee in the pool there also.

2:24 Because domestic violence doesn't occur Madison County???

You left Jackson because of domestic stabbing incidents? Weird.

Here come the contagion theorists with their worn out fallacies. They'll be in denial about the Jacktown cesspool until their dying day.

The Trails was fun, in the early 90s, when I was n my early twenties. Good times. Sad that the area has declined.

The patient is terminal.

There is no cure.

End of life care is your only option.

RIP Jackson.

On the condition of anonymity, a police department spokesman said 'it is believed that an altercation led to this fatality'.

@ 5:19pm Did you pee in the pool at the Trails too?

RIP Jackson....that's funny. This might as well be Ridgeland.

This is what happens when you build apartments. First, punks pee in the pool. A generation later, people get stabt.

Wait, how old are all of those apartments in Ridgeland?

Styrofoam houses said...

At least the stabbin apartments don’t have fake stucco. Not many houses in Madison can say the same.

Raze north point and put the zoo there.

For the repetitive stucco-dunce: There is no such thing as 'fake' stucco. Stucco is stucco. There is no substitute. Please educate yourself while scrubbing the mildew off your asbestos shingles. Also, move, when you get a chance and can sell that dump.

Cynical Sam said...

If the apartments had been certified, with a zoo, without potholes, and receive their water bills, this would not have happened.

I too lived at the Trails when I first moved to Jackson around 1986. Never went in the pool though. Was a nice place back then.

Alpha Storm said...

Bunch of old farts remembering the good ole days when they pee in the Northpointe swimming pool. Next someone gonna say do you remember the Flood of 79.

Unfortunately the state takeover of Jackson will not occur until after Lumumba inherits Bennies seat. That’s why Phil didn’t allow the stark take control of JPS: the dem party couldn’t afford to have that blemish on Lumumbas resume when they trot him out as the second coming of Obama.

If I ever need a boost of confidence to stay in Jackson, all I have to do is come to JJ and read the comments from those who live in Madison. The thought of having to live next to one of you narcissistic, lonely, bitter, old, fat, white, men, is just too much. Plus, my house would look exactly like your house. In all seriousness, I really do feel sorry for how blackened your souls are. You get joy from seeing pain in others. You feed off of it and that's sad.

I heard that Mr. Gilmer came home and told his girl that he had just seen a house covered in "fake stucco".

Since you can't afford to buy into one of Madison's neighborhoods of custom houses then you are probably correct.

Louis LeFleur said...

9:24, are you saying that he was stuccoed to death?

Anonymous said...

9:37 That's where you are 100% incorrect. I CAN afford a custom house in Madison. A lot of people in NE Jackson can afford custom homes in Madison. I can assure you that's not the reason why I stay in Jackson and most in my NE Jackson neighborhood stay. That's cute that you think that. It just proves your elitist persona is a truthful one.

All right, knock off all the Jackson v. Madison crap. Do you people ever give it a rest?

Pelahatchie is the best city in Mississippi. Hey we don't have Pineapples or Potholes like other place I'm not gonnna name.

Sick of the Madison vs. Jackson crap. Give it a rest.. let's work together and help male Mississippi a better place. Take pride in where you live. Too much of the money in Mississippi is in NE Jackson and Madison compared to rest of the state. Work together.

I grew up in Northpointe in the '90's. Loved living there. There are still a lot of nice houses and great families there. It's such a shame they can't get their act together and get the neighborhood gated (Trails would have been ouside the gates, if you know the layout).

Enough is enough. We need stricter knife laws!!! People don't kill people.....KNIVES Do.

Less money in NEJax with each passing week.

It was "horseplay" that led to this young man being stobbed. That's some rough horseplay.

What a complete embarrassment of a state and city. You people are pitiful. And to think that I was considering moving my business there. No wonder you are the laughing stock of the country. Can’t even solve your own problems without petty finger pointing. You’re like first class and steerage passengers arguing on the deck of the titanic.

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.
