Homicide in Madison (Updated)

The Madison Police Departments issued the following press release:

On Wednesday, May 21, 2014, at approximately 12:52 PM the Madison Police Department responded to a report of a deceased individual at a residence at 115 Harris Lane in Madison.  Upon arrival officers found a black male subject deceased in the bedroom of the residence.  Due to the indication of possible foul play, officers and investigators began a homicide investigation with the assistance of the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation Crime Scene Unit and the Madison County Coroner.

OMG, isn't that like a block away from Tulane University's campus? This should not happen in a college town.

Actually, having a murder within a couple of blocks of the Madison Campus makes the "Tulane Experience" more authentic. When I was there (Uptown Campus, New Orleans), there were murders near-campus all the time.

Kinda ironic that black on black murder has hit Madison the city.

Another ploy by the Cochran camp....Thad hired Mayor Mary to have an interracial affair with the deceased.

Mary slept with him, stole his voter ID (possibly to kill Childers' chances by 1) and killed him and planted McDaniel fliers all up on his corpse which read:

"Thad did not do this...neither did Rose...Shes in a coma."

Thad's lawyer and confidant, Don Clark, was seen exiting Thad's pants pocket and climbing the corpse scavanging for clues.

And 2 illegal aliens fixing the garden near City Hall were over heard saying, "these white people, si, they are loco."

And the beat goes on...

McDaniel and trolls are SOOO Mississippi redneck.

7:34 = 6:47. So obvious.

With an armed robbery in Madison, a Murder in Madison, and Thad/Chris Camp fighting over the picture, this could be a making of a new police show set in Mississippi. I'll call it Strawberry Justice or Pineapple Justice.

Is that near the construction area leading to Malco theatre?

The house is in "The Rosa Scott Community" (now in "Madison, the City") which is next to the ball fields and Rosa Scott school.

Can you imagine Kingfish culling comments, yet allowing the one at 7:44?

Stolen vehicle belonging to the victim was located in (DRUM ROLL).....Jackson.

Betcha Mary doesn't like the recent turn of events.

Hell, when the High School girl was molested at the theater, she had a fit because the principal of MRA sent out an email to parents warning them of what happened.

/gotta shake your head when Jackson can't keep their criminals in check.

2:20 am yeah...proof you can't escape and might should want Jackson to solve it's problems. You aren't safe!

ePop Quiz-Can anyone recall the last time Madison had a murder? And the MPD hit-job on the kids dog across the street from Mayor Mary-Escobar's house doesn't count.

...and might should want Jackson to solve it's problems.

Get a clue! Of course we want Jackson to solve its problems.

Did On-Star have to get permission from JPD before releasing the vehicle's location to Madison PD? Did Madison PD wait the usual three hours for JPD to acknowledge and escort them to the location of the vehicle? Did Lee Vance take credit for locating the car? Did Colendula Green ask for the public's assistance? Was racism involved or did the Madison PD cruiser contain one white and one black officer when it arrived in Jackson city limits? Was Mary briefed? Did Stokes somehow inhibit radio coordination?

These are all important questions.

Jackson solve it's problems??? Hell, they're moving to the suburbs! Sounds like a great start in becoming crime free!

It gets old when the jfp folks come on here and call you guys racists, but my goodness, tons of sarcastic comments about a murdered black guy? If the victim was a hairdresser from Pearl that was one of ya'lls' aunts, you dumfuks would all be saying things like "prayers sent" and "lets find that bastard and hope he gets the death penalty" ect....bunch of rednecks. Rest In Peace

Sympathy and prayers go out to the family. The same goes out to the folks who've posted the earlier comments on this topic.

What is wrong with you people? Have any of you ever heard the word "sympathy". A hard working young man in the prime of his life has been murdered. And all you guys are worried about is where it happened and where the car was found. This person has a family and Im sure his family is full of sadness. Have a little respect and quit thinking about yourselves all the time. My prayers go out to this mans family.

I have no doubt that the Madison PD and MBI will catch the murderer(s). I have not doubt they will be tried and convicted. Question is, will their sentence be death...doubt it. A long time in prison for so we'll have something to pay for.

Anonymous said...

OMG 7:44 are you kidding me? Shame on you. A person died here. Have a little compassion.

Anonymous said...

Just who in the hell unleashed this vermin on society? Can anyone pinpoint the time line in which the full frontal assault on honest hard working people began? Can anyone establish a time reference when the minority controlled the majority? When did homosexual marriage become mainstream and traditional marriage become a crime? When did it become fashionable to chide and ridicule Christians and kill anyone that questions islam's terrorism? Why are conservatives demonized and left wing zealot's celebrated? Just who or what started this disgusting ball rolling?

I join with those who are disappointed that the 7:44 comment was not screened out. Its joyful sickness gives me the creeps.

When non land owners were given the right to vote.

Power was ceded.

When men let women vote.

Power was ceded.

When chattel became humans with rights.

Power was ceded.

The answer is when equality was bestowed on all human beings, power was ceded.

Its not a minority controlling the majority, its just the opposite...after the above movements, you are now in the minority on issues such as gay marriage. You are in the minority in your beliefs that all people must be Christians.

You are the dude from the movie "Falling Down."

Anonymous said...

Quite the contrary @3:32PM...I am not the "dude" from the movie Falling Down. No time did I espouse that all people must be Christians. That would be muslims claiming that all people must be muslim otherwise they will blow you up. Why in the hell should a non land owner be allowed to vote on land and land tax issues? Certainly is is the minority controlling the majority. What cave do you live in?

Anonymous said...

When did traditional marriage become a crime? I must of missed that one. As for gay marriage, who cares? It's not like all the Christians really follow the Bible anyway, not with the high divorce rate and multiple marriages that seems to be the norm. Marriage between a man and woman is sacred, until it's time for out with the old and in with the new.

The only person that can commit a crime in Madison and get away with it is Mr. Mary Hawkins Butler and his role in the Nissan land fraud.

Dude, maybe you wouldn't have been a flop as a developer, if you were not ILLITERATE. I'm assuming you're one of the failed developers who bitterly make lame hate posts against our Mayor. As it is, I can only guess at what you're trying to say with the above.

Is 'Mr. Mary Hawkins Butler and his role in the Nissan land fraud' an entity of some sort? Or did you mean, 'Mr. Mary Hawkins Butler, and his role in the Nissan Land Fraud?' (I inserted a comma.) It's still a pretty sucky sentence, though.

Maybe you meant, "The only person who (not 'that') can commit a crime in Madison, and get away with it, is Mr. Mary Hawkins Butler. I refer to his role in the Nissan Land Fraud."

I will assume that you understand that persons named 'Mary' are generally women. So, by using the title, 'Mr.', are you telling us that Mary is actually a man? Or are you one of those people we hear about, who suffer from 'Gender Confusion'? Or are you referring to Mary's husband?

If the last option reflects your intent, then I should tell you that there is no "Nissan Land Fraud" detectable by Google. But if you are referring to the defrauding of an elderly widow, by misrepresenting to her, the value of her land in Madison County, then my understanding is that Mr. Butler's "role" in the affair was his REPORTING the wrongdoing of others, to the proper authorities.

The vast majority of Madison's residents know that Mary is fighting against a cabal of crooks. That's why SEVENTY SEVEN PERCENT of us voted for her, in her run against 'Bag Boy' (He used to have another name. We all forgot that other name. Now, he's 'Bag Boy', until the end of time.)

As for your "gotta love local politix"... Do you think that this is witty? Is it an attempt at passing yourself off as 'a local wise-cracker'? Are you trying to be 'one of the boys'?

I am going to assume that you know the proper spelling of 'politics'. But honestly: what are you trying to do with that last line? Are you trying to pass yourself off as someone who is NOT an affiliate of the Cabal of Crooks?

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.
