Man (Allegedly) Kills Woman with Sword

 Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey issued the following statement. 

On Wednesday, February 17, 2021, Rankin County deputies were dispatched to the 200 block of Shady Hill Drive in Star for a medical call.  When deputies and fire department personnel arrived they spoke to a JOSEPH DEAN KERSH, who was complaining of leg and foot pain.  While in the residence deputies located a deceased female lying on the floor.  The victim had multiple trauma wounds on her body and stab wounds on her back.  A sword, which appeared to have been used in the crime, was located next to the victim’s body. 

KERSH was taken into custody and transported to a local hospital before being released and transported to the Rankin County jail.  Rankin County District Attorney John “Bubba” Bramlett will bring KERSH before Rankin County Court Judge Kent McDaniel for an initial appearance.  Rankin County investigators continue to work the case.

Since he didn’t take her head then we can rest assured that he is not the Highlander.

Allegedly. The hair and beard should not influence your opinion on the term "allegedly". Nor should the reference to Rankin county.

But he likely did it with a sword. Emphasis on the W.

A sword ?
(For real) ??

Florida Man must have gotten "iced-in" down at Star.

Was the blade a Hattori Hanzō? How did he get a Hattori Hanzō?

When he hung out at The Cherokee, he was so nice. Sometimes wore a Viking hat with horns. We never suspected a thing since he sort of just fit in.

Perhaps the man ran out of meds and couldn't get anywhere to get more due to the icy roads. Perhaps his wife/the female was trying to calm him from a psychotic episode.

Covid and the ice storm have wreaked more havoc than people know. The mentally ill have suffered tremendously from loss of face-to-face counseling, loss of support and loneliness.

Then again, he could just be an asshole.

I'm guessing it wasn't a Hattori Hanzō sword.

I believe they were rehearsing for the Star Shakespearean Society's upcoming performance of Romeo and Juliet. He was practicing Tybalt to her Mercutio and the swordfight scene just went a bit too far.

Why all the jokes about a tragic death and apparent murder of a woman? What if it was your mother, sister, aunt, friend, etc. Even the onlookers and gawkers in society seem to have little respect for life anymore.

Yikes! there’s nothing more cringe than white boys making tarantino movie references.

When swords are outlawed, only outlaws will have swords. Baby Chok should close those sword shows and seize all illegal swords.

There can be only one!

Varys mistook him for Tormund Giantsbane.

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.
