Man Kills His Own Family

JPD issued the following statement. 

Jackson Police are investigating a shooting that left three fatally wounded.  It happened just after 11:00am on Marwood Drive. 

Officers were originally called to a residence located in the 3000 block regarding someone being held against their will.  When they arrived, they found a black male in a wheelchair,  just outside the home and a firearm was laying near him.  After the male told officers that he had shot someone, they later walked to the rear of the home and discovered three black females, all suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.  Each was pronounced deceased at the scene. 

The male was taken into custody for questioning.  He is identified as 22-year-old, Maurice Forte, and is related to all three of the victims.  Forte suspected of the shooting and has since been charged with three counts of murder. 

The victims are identified as 67-year-old, Eddie Mae Wofford (suspect’s grandmother), 49-year-old, Miyuki Wofford (suspect’s mother) and 26-year-old, Kyisha Wofford (suspect’s sister).

Forte is currently being held without bond and is awaiting an initial court appearance.

Maurice Forte

Kingfish note: The Officer-Involved Shooting ID Task Force doesn't want you to have this information but JJ will report it anyway. There is a 2014 indictment against Maurice Forte in Hinds County Circuit Court for attempted armed robbery and house burglary. The case is still pending. The last entry was 2016. His d.o.b. is December 14, 1995.

Wonder how Shamsid-Dunce will explain this one.

If true, and convicted, this wheelchair-bound POS would probably cost $500K+ a year to keep him at 98.6.

5:19...I'm going with 'Yes', but only because his name appears beneath the photo.

Good for KF's reporting.

This "Officer-involved" taskforce is nothing more than an attempt to intimidate JPD from using their weapons when lethal force is required.

The legislature should not allow Jackson to do this.

How did he attempt to rob someone and burglar a house if he is in a wheelchair?

Traci Avalon said...

How is this guy able to rob and burglar in a wheel chair? Or what happened to him the last two years that caused his affliction ? So much more to this story that we will probably ever know... in any case I’m sick about it.

He is allegedly both the shooter and the wheels man.

Todays paper had a huge write up by "Jerry Mitchell" on the number of blacks incarcerated in the state...…

You notice the idiot never writes or explains on how they got there, why is that Jerry boy? Can't stomach the truth?

Lets see the tally for the week-end:
- One dead in Belhaven
- Two injured in a drive-by on Key street
- Three dead in murder on Marwood

Don't guess it's hard to ignore these numbers when there is nothing you can claim as racist in your liberal rag, huh?

(Allegedly) kills his family

Where is Hinds, Mississippi? Wherever it is would be an ideal spot for his burial plot. The wheelchair could be set in concrete atop his plot.

He won't be eligible for the handicapped citizen of the year award for 2018. Maybe next year.

How many murders in Jackson this year?

Just an FYI

Interpretation of Facebook post please.

Sounds premeditated. Death penalty time.

It's a shame that elected prosecuting attorneys have made such an unjust mockery of sending innocents to their deaths that when we have individuals whose crimes glaringly demand a death sentence and there is overwhelming evidence to prove it the murderers get life with a membership in the gym and an internet connection in many jurisdictions. Criminal justice across the country is a terrible joke and Mississippi is at the bottom of the barrel.

Check him out here in this video. One commenter asks if he's really in a wheelchair to which this response followed: "Yes, something happened to his body but he still in his right mind".

Anyway...enjoy. In this clip, he visits the mall.

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. 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.
