Capitol Police Arrest Suspect in Reddix Murder

 The Capitol Police arrested Kenneth Gross for the murder of Joseph Reddix today.  An investigator's affidavit states: 

I, Investigator xxxxxxx xxxxx, the APPLICANT, being duly sworn, makes this affidavit that Kenneth L. Gross th DEFENDANT, on or about February 15, 2023, did then and there willfully, feloniously and of malice afterthought kill and murder,.by shooting to death with a deadl1y weapon, to- with: (unknown caliber weapon), Joseph Bryant Reddix. This occurred in front of 207 Taylor Street....

Gross was arrested in 2021 for aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.  Little information is known except that Hinds County Court Judge Johnny McDaniels ordered his release because he was not brought before a judge within 48 hours of his arrest. 

The victim was 33 years old.  He was the son of Dr. Carl Reddix.

I 100% support the expansion of the Capitol Improvement District and the Capitol Police. They are doing an outstanding job and are actually working to arrest murder suspects. It seems like the vast majority of murders in Jackson go unsolved.

Both parents are medical doctors, and Joey Reddix had every advantage growing up, but peer pressure and the allure of gangsta life was too overwhelming

nothing is known about him other than "he was arrested for the "
murder of Carl Reddix"

Damn. The infamous Reddix family in Hinds County. And he was released for what - not being brought before the judge in 48 hours? Surely that has never before been a problem - wonder just where in the political system this one got caught in this supposed technicality.

Reddix - hummmm. wonder where I've heard that name before regarding the 'city' politics, considering that the judge that termed him loose was an APPOINTED city judge. You know, those APPOINTED judges are the bain of today's world as not being competent, or fair.

You need to read the post again. Word for word.

Comments here are atrocious. Joey Reddix was a good man and nothing he or his father did deserved being murdered in the street. Stop the hate.

Assaults a cop, but is let go after 48 hours? Did they pursue charges, or that was the end of it?

12:03, I certainly agree Joey did not deserve what happened to him, but the woman he carjacked at gunpoint a couple of years ago might have a hard time going along with the “good man” label.

Joey was 100% a good man. Most of his issues were due to him not taking his medication. He was my best friend. Not a thug at all. Both parents are doctors and I believe his sisters are too. He was not in the streets at all. He frequently wore suits and ties while hardly speaking Ebonics. Had a college degree from Morehouse. He would have given any of you the shirt off of his back. Did he have flaws? Yes, but he without sin cast the first stone. Please be respectful to him #Justiceforjoey

Alot of trash comments. Respect to the last post. Rest easy #JoeyFreePress you will be missed, but definitely not forgotten!

The most important point you’re all overlooking is the fact that criminals can easily obtain guns to commit murder in Jackson because of the Republican Party, which protects the interest of the gun industry by making it easier for any swinging Dick to carry a gun and without a background check or concealed gun permit. Then those redneck lying MF passed legislation to prevent cities like Jackson from passing ordinances that would strengthen gun control. Finally, those hypocritical SOB referred to Jackson as the murder capitol of the nation and recently used Jackson’s gun violence as justification to launch a coup. The only time white suburbs experience gun violence is when one of theirs decides to go on a shooting spree. There is no god or justice in this pathetic country.

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.
