DeAndre Joshua, 20, was murdered on the same night of the Saint Louis Grand Jury announcement. DeAndre was shot in the head, and then a flammable liquid poured on him and set afire inside his vehicle.
DeAndre Joshua also fits the social profile of several eye-witnesses who gave the police/FBI statements and testified before the Grand Jury in the Mike Brown shooting case. If that were the only coincidence it might be easy to dismiss. Alas, it’s not. Out of an abundance of caution for other witnesses we are avoiding outlining the most direct connections.
As you are aware DeAndre was an employed black male, with no history of drug use or illicit behavior. In the Canfield Community marijuana is not considered illicit, nor does weed really qualify as drug use – it’s as common as tobacco. DeAndre was also a friend of Dorian Johnson who is currently under protection.
Obviously his friend, Dorian Johnson is very alarmed, understandably so. On the night before the Grand Jury announcement, there were considerable nerves amid a select group in the Ferguson community.
As the attention of a nation turned to the grand jury decision, and also to the demands of the Justice for Mike Brown coalition, Dorian Johnson was potentially going to be the recipient of a tremendous amount of angst. Several people were looking for DeAndre and Dorian.
Dorian was in hiding – DeAndre was vulnerable.
Another witness who falls into this almost identical profile is Witness #35, who has been identified under the name “Viron”. However, even the FBI agents who interviewed Viron are unsure of his actual identity.
Witness #35 presented himself for FBI interview with an “uncle”, and a female attorney. When it came to identify himself, well, the ambiguity is almost unbelievable were it not documented by the federal authorities. (See Page #32)
Witness #35 would not give his real name, nor his social security number, nor his address or contact information, and would only sign his statement with an alias.
In hindsight, and against the backdrop of the death of DeAndre Joshua, the reluctance of Witness #35 might lead a researcher to understand a prescient fear was not unfounded.
However, social media is identifying a profile that fits a connection to Dorian as described in the affidavit, Viron becomes Devorion Livingston. Devorion is a friend to both eye-witness and robbery cohort Dorian Johnson, along with the murdered DeAndre Joshua.
Given the relationships, the connections, and the documented associations, Devorion fits the profile of Witness #35 who gave the painful to read testimony to the FBI where they were consistently reminding him, and warning him, about the risks of lying about the events. Witness #35 read his testimony here.
Devorion Livingston is also pictured below with Dorian Johnson last year at Canfield apartment complex. Note the vehicle in the background:
DeAndre Joshua murder […] Authorities say a pile of broken glass and blood lay beside the white Pontiac Grand Prix Joshua was found inside. (link)
Yes, that’s a White Grand Prix behind Dorian Johnson (purple shirt) and Devorian Livingston.
Both Dorian Johnson and Devorion Livingston found out about DeAndre’s brutal murder at approximately the same time.
Dorian Johnson, who is in protective custody, was understandably freaking out.
Below you can see how Devorion Livingston payed homage to his now murdered friend the day he found out.
Apparently the three Canfield friends, Devorion, Dorian and DeAndre, knew each other for quite some time.
However, prior to the grand jury announcement Devorion Livingston and his pregnant wife (?) got the heck outta
dodge Ferguson. (click to enlarge and read the FB narrative)
Obviously DeAndre Joshua didn’t leave Ferguson – he was murdered last Monday in Canfield Greens Apartment complex, mere yards away from where Mike Brown was shot.
So the ultimate question becomes is this just mere coincidence? Dorian, Devorian and DeAndre being close friends. Dorian in hiding, Devorian having left town, and DeAndre now murdered. A person would have to be exceptionally obtuse not to see the connections.
But if it’s not a coincidence, then why?
Street Justice Rules – Witness #14 gives a chilling account of what would happen to these kids if they told the wrong story – and what were the risks.
Initially Witness #14 talked to State investigators – however, in his August 12th statement he mentioned the false story surrounding the “hands up – don’t shoot” narrative; and the pressure from the community to tell lies in support of the construct (read here).
That initial statement prompted the FBI to come and visit Witness #14 specifically to talk about that aspect of his statement.
Within the FBI interview -a day before he was scheduled to appear before the grand jury- Witness #14 tells the FBI not only about the “hand’s up” story being totally made up by the community, but also that Mike Brown’s step-dad, Louis Head, was the enforcer to insure compliance (read here).
Apparently Louis Head was the threat to make sure that all of the witnesses in/around Canfield Greens Apartment complex said the right things, the “hands up – don’t shoot” things.
Louis Head was also the person who gained notoriety by climbing upon a vehicle and shouting “Burn This Bitch Down” the night DeAndre was murdered…
…. The night DeAndre Joshua was indeed “burned down” while seated in his Grand Prix.
Witness #14 was scheduled to testify on September 25th at 10:30am. He never showed up.
Perhaps these are all coincidences. Perhaps.
However, perhaps Louis Head, and those of like-minded association, also hold the greatest motive for anger toward Dorian Johnson, and as a consequence toward anyone who was unsuccessful at getting Justice for Mike Brown.
Several of the eye-witnesses, who gave honest testimony to the Grand Jury, were, according to their own statements, warned immediately after the shooting to keep their mouths shut. All of the eye-witnesses were African American. If you read the reports the sense of fear about speaking the truth is overwhelming.
Many, if not all, of the witness statements outlined in police reports, FBI reports, and later in Grand Jury testimony -who testified to the factual events as outlined by officer Wilson, and whose testimony fit the physical and forensic evidence- were threatened by the local Canfield Greens community.
Was the murder of DeAndre Joshua an outcome of a broken street code? His family thinks so:
(Via Daily Mail) A man has died during the Ferguson riots just yards from where Michael Brown was shot dead. Residents on Canfield Drive said that DeAndre Joshua, 20, was shot whilst in his car though police at the scene refused to confirm any details.
DeAndre’s grandmother Renita Towns said that ‘somebody killed him’ during the carnage.
She said that he graduated Beaumont High School and that he was working in Wal-Mart.
Family member Brian Joshua, 45, added: ‘He was a good kid, he’s gone to high school, he’s got a job, he’s not into drugs or any of that stuff.
‘I only saw him yesterday morning. He was a smart guy, he spoke cleanly, he was positive’.
Police took away DeAndre’s white Pontiac Grand Prix and interviewed witnesses around 11am. A woman in her 20s broke down in tears and said: ‘I knew him, he was my twin’. (read more)
This is a typical example of the sentiment, threats and fear:
