Homicide at JSU (Updated)

 A homicide took place at Jackson State University.  Multiple law enforcement agencies as well as the Hinds County Coroner are on the scene.  More information will be posted when it becomes available. 


Update (3:05 PM): MBI issued the following statement: 

 The Mississippi Bureau Investigation and Jackson State University Police are working together to investigate the recent homicide on JSU campus. At this time, there is no further threat to those on campus.

MBI is currently assessing this critical incident and gathering evidence. Upon completing their investigation, agents will share their findings with the local District Attorney’s Office.

This is an open and ongoing investigation; no further comment will be made by MBI at this time.  

JSU President Dr. Thomas Hudson issued the following statement as well: 

 JSU family, it is with a heavy heart that I confirm the death of a JSU student. The loss of a young person is always a devastating circumstance for our campus community. Our thoughts are with the family during this difficult time.

Law enforcement towed a Dodge Challenger away from the scene. A person of interest is in custody.

Update (11:00 PM): Sources say two dorm students at JSU got into a fight this morning.  A student killed the other student and placed the body in the trunk of his car.  A football player thought something didn't seem right and called police.  Police intercepted the suspect trying to leave campus.  A reader spelled all this out in a comment but JJ was unable to verify it for a few hours. 

Randall Smith of New Orleans was arrested.  The victim was Flynn Brown of New Jersey.

I love the information provided by the authorities...

"We have confirmed that a dead body was found in the parking lot. But there is no current threat to students."

This will certainly help keep Coach Prime here as well as recruit new students.

No one nor place is immune to these types of occurrences.

How can it possibly be said that 'there is no threat to students'? How asinine.

One more reason to justify Deion's leaving for Florida. Down there he won't have to worry with homicides in the neighborhood.

Besides avoiding killings and carjackings on campus and at games, Florida will also pay the folks making his program work (i.e. bus drivers, stadium workers.)

The news mentioned also that today at JSU is "High School College Day" and that there are dozens and dozens of yellow buses on campus with a bunch of HS kids visiting. That's some timing there.

"Person of interest is in custody." WTF? If he is in custody, he is a SUSPECT, not a "person of interest!"

just another day in Chokwe's paradise...

My bet is Deion (& his son) bags are packed and after the game Saturday they're headed South to Florida.

No water crisis.
Crime nowhere near Jackson's.

It's time to take the next step up & out of Jackustan.

nowadays even murder is not a shock on our campuses?! coach prime has raised our city while contending with water crisis--the team left campus the night before their first game to stay at the sheraton/refuge before flying to FL. JSU students went home during our boil water fiasco because no ac in dorms, no water for cleaning / drinking, not to mention the garbage fiasco. perhaps this chaos adds to violence from our teens and college students?

This really shows people what is important. They care more about some coach leaving the school than they did about a kid being killed. No wonder the crimes is so high in Jackson.

....."A football player thought something didn't seem right and called police."......
Well, looks like the coach might have instilled some sense of morality and decency. Credit is given where credit is due.

It used to amaze me to see repeated comments to these Jackson crimes like, "This happens in all cities" as if the residents are justifying and making peace with this heinous lifestyle.

As 10:21 said, people's priorities are so screwed.

The majority is just ok with this, since "it happens ever where".

Intelligent people know that is not true of course, but it is just sad that they lie and self-sooth into acceptance rather than taking the hard steps to fix the problems.

Someone posted that there has been a second murder on JSU campus. If true, where's that 'update'?

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.
