My it took you awhile to post anything on tthis sad case. You must know that there is more to this case than we see and hear. I’ve picked up on tidbits here and there. The whole case sounds bizarre and sketchy. Would love some holes to be filled in and/or exposed. Let’s hope the real truth is told as to what happened. Zach was a decent hardworking young man. Why did it take so long for Guy to come forward? Why is there no record of him on social media? It’s like his history has been erased. Can anyone explain? No one should be covering up anything.

Yet you've NEVER starting your own competing outlet. SHUT UP.

So sad :(

I imagine he didn't come forward because he left the scene and was scared and ashamed? Who knows.

Terrible loss for the Spell family.

@10:21 stick to what you know... you don’t know anything about the people posting on here. He/she does have valid points.

@ 9:58 -- He is on facebook... Look up Aaron Wright instead of Guy..

2:30 AM? I'm sorry but...

Scared and ashamed? Please! He left the scene because he was drunk. By staying away, police cannot prove he was intoxicated, so the only charge will be leaving the scene, not DUI and vehicular homicide.

Make note people. If you're drunk or high, flee the scene and turn yourself in after your system is clean.

Why has vehicular homicide not been added as a charge? I’m no law expert. Just wondering if there is a reason it’s been left off.

I used to live in that neighborhood. Seems like a strange time and place for them to be. Did they know each other?

The pedestrian was walking from the Hideaway to Whataburger.

You reckon maybe because there no evidence of guilt? Sorta like there's no evidence upon which to base that stupid assed post of Pitty Pander.

"The pedestrian was walking from the Hideaway to Whataburger"

Now I live in that area, right off Briarwood and Ridgewood - and that is a long ways to go from the Hideaway to Whataburger? Because if he wanted a late night burger - he could have went to Burger King on Old Canton Court?

The Hideaway to Whataburger is a long dangerous walk - especially along Frontage Road that late at night.

"Felony leaving the scene of an accident", if memory serves, includes provision for resulting in death. This will play strongly into his conviction IF the DA's office does it's job correctly. I will add he at least surrendered. Now insurance and civil suit will occur.

Oh, wait....

8:27 - You left out the part about how easy it will be to show that a small man wearing dark clothing on an unlit street at 2:00 am, can't be seen by approaching traffic. You are sentenced to repeat accident-reconstruction 101.

The pedestrian was 6’3” and a big man. Pretty easy to see.

He was going to meet friends at Whataburger. I know it is nuts to be walking on I-55 N frontage road at 2:00am for multiple reasons but when you are young you think you are bulletproof

Anonymous said...

4:38/5:43 Don't care how 'big' or 'young/bulletproof' you think they are... they're just damn stupid to be ANYWHERE walking... OR DRIVING at 2:30AM... Lack of intellectual/parental training!

Obviously not! And as long as we're assuming that alcohol was involved, let's throw out the the possibility that the pedestrian was inebriated, stumbling along and stepped into traffic in the dark. He could have also been prone, when struck. Then he would have only been ten inches tall.

Anonymous said...

I believe the police report stated that there was possible damage to the driver side of car. That means he was not prone. The bumper is much higher than 10 inches. Even if he was kneeling, the driver must have either swerved for some reason to hit Zach or aimed at him, whether he was standing, kneeling, or sitting. This action could’ve happened due to inebriation, texting, sleeping, etc. Either way, the driver struck a pedestrian and he died.

Or the car (not the driver) could have struck a deceased, former pedestrian. The Jackson police 'assumed' the vehicle might have damage to the driver's side based on the location of the body. They also assumed the deceased was standing when struck. But, they had no proof of that when the assumption was aired. Let's wait until someone 'competent' actually completes an investigation and reconstruction.

Since the assumptions at 12:31 are pretty damned wild, let's hope that poster is never on a jury or accident reconstruction team. i.e. 'swerved to hit', 'aimed at', inebriation, texting, sleeping, and the all-encompasinig 'etc'. About all you left out is the possibility that the deceased was accompanied by a really angry female who pushed him into the path of the car and ran away into the darkness. Let's be complete here, as long as we're fabricating possibilities.

I have seen people in dark clothing walking along the road in the road late at night and its not until I pass them that I see them. Please if you are walking in the middle of the night do not assume people can see you especially in dark colors

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.
