*UPDATE* – A Mississippi Burning – The Murder of Jessica Lane Chambers – Searching for #Justice For Jessica…

update-1VIA CNN – On Thursday, a CNN crew saw a man in a Panola County Sheriff’s Office pickup truck collect something from the ground, less than 50 feet from the tree, place it in a paper bag and drive off. He stopped a short distance down the road and crouched by the roadside, placing something else in a paper bag and driving away.

Jessica Chambers 3Later, several men from the sheriff’s office, clad in fluorescent vests, arrived and began investigating the scene, picking items up and examining them as a canine unit assisted with the investigation

[…] After obtaining warrants and cracking a password, police were able to access Jessica Chambers’ phone records and are following up on leads, a prosecutor said Thursday.

Police are searching her data and text records after obtaining warrants Wednesday that compelled Google and her cell phone provider to give police access to her phone’s content, said John Champion, district attorney for Mississippi’s 17th Circuit.

The prosecutor on Thursday also updated information he had given CNN the previous day that indicated Chambers had attended a party but police couldn’t find anyone who had seen her there. Police have now spoken to witnesses who claim to have seen Chambers at the party, the prosecutor said.

jessica chambers 8The story of 19-year-old Jessica Lane Chambers’ murder is gaining media attention thanks to a concerted effort by you and others to trend the social media. Mainstream Media outlets search “trends” to give them indications of stories they should cover.  The attention by CNN, FOX and the alphabet networks is due in no small part to people using social media to share the story of Jessica Chambers and gain focus/inquiry.

As the media engages, we now much more than we did even 24 hours ago thanks to some exceptional analysis and research. Original Story HERE and follow up research HERE. Treeper LetJusticePrevail provided the most important aspect, the specific location of the crime.  (CLICK HERE)

Jessica Lane Chambers was murdered near 2352 Herron Road, Courtland Mississippi. The crime scene above is a critical aspect of the entire understanding as to what took place. Much of the information below is a result of LJP’s research.

jessica chambers invest 6

The location of her brutal murder is critical because of several variables:

#1. The 911 caller
#2. The proximity to her last known activity.
#3. The proximity to her home.
#4. The timing of the events.

The location of her actual death is Semi remote. She was found beside her burning vehicle at this point of Herron Rd.

“A car is on fire” – According to media and LEO reporting a passing motorist called in a “car fire”. This is important because the caller identified the type of fire, not just a generic “fire”.  This would have only been possible if the 911 caller was also driving on Herron Road.  (see the map).

“Timing” – On Tuesday night a reporter, not an investigator, located CCTV video of Jessica at a nearby gas station on State Highway #51. The address is 8967 Highway #51, Courtland, Mississippi. According to CCTV timestamps:

1) Jessica arrived at M&M First Stop Gas at 6:25pm
2) Exits car, approaches store, then walks out of frame until 6:27pm
3) Enters store at 6:27:15 pays (for gas?) then exits store at 6:28:15pm
4) Arrives back at car 6:28:27pm
5) Opens car door, either places something inside or uses interior latch to access gas tank.
6) Pumps gas from 6:29 to ? (news footage didn’t show timestamp)
7) Gets in car and drives away–estimated time now around 6:32pm?

A picture inside the store of Jessica at the cash register:

jessica chambers invest 7

Her vehicle entered the gas station from North, headed South. Her model car (2005 Kia Rio) gas tank access is on the drivers side of the vehicle.

She then leaves the gas station headed again in a Southbound direction at approximately 6:32pm. Her home is in the opposite direction, North.

jessica chambers invest 5

Approximately 90 minutes later the fire department responded to the call at Herron Road. What happened between 6:30 and 8:00pm is the unknown timeframe.

According to her mom, Lisa Chambers, either she called home -or her mom called her- at 6:48pm. Prior to that call when Jessica left home she stated she was going to “clean her car”, and then “get something to eat”. Jessica was wearing PJ style camo (black and white) pants, possibly flannel, and a dark zip-up hoodie.

The SCENE – Upon review of the CCTV video it does not appear there was any damage to Jessica’s car at the gas station. However, there is notable damage to the rear passenger side of the car when it was removed from the crime scene. How did her rear end get damaged?

jessica chambers invest 8

You’ll note from both footage of the crime scene, and from pictures of the crime scene, a tree is burned at the top of a considerable embankment (approximately 4 to 6 feet in elevation).

The tree is burned to a height of 10 to 12 feet. The tree is not scorched, it is burned – which would indicate the car was in contact with, or at least in VERY close proximity to, the tree as the vehicle burned.

While it would be possible for surrounding shrubbery to have caught fire and traveled to the tree, if you look at the scene itself you can remove that from consideration. In addition on the day prior (Friday 12/5) the area received 2.25 inches of rain. The ground and surrounding foliage would have been wet, very wet.

Unless the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed she could not have driven into the tree, or the proximity of the tree. Which brings you to the damaged rear end. Was the vehicle pushed into the position where it was eventually set on fire?

If her vehicle was pushed, or her rear end was hit, then a 2nd vehicle is related to the events.  Jessica had a head injury indicating she was struck prior to being set on fire.  An accelerant of some kind was used in the fire.

The location of the vehicle at the crime scene, in relation to the geography, would make it appear she was headed back toward home while traveling Herron Road.  Where was she for the time prior?

Anyone With Information Is Urged To Call Panola County Sheriff’s Office (662)563-6230

♦  Why did Jessica Chambers go South on Highway #51 (away from home) when she left the gas station?

♦  What happened in those 90 minutes from 6:32 to 8:00pm?

♦  How did the suspect, or suspects, flee the area?

    Speculation warning:

    Concerning the new info that CNN saw someone associated with the sheriffs department at the scene today, pick something up in the area, drive down the road, stop, get out and pick something else up.

    Sounds like he knew where to go to get these items. Especially the second one.

    now how does that happen.

    side of the road is a ditch in those parts. like where the battery was found “too”.

    Is this sorta like a play where you tell the perp you have the phone and the battery etc. really didn’t find them, playing them. Then the perp buys/buckles from the pressure after todays press conference, breaks and confirm to them where they found the battery etc, Which they didn’t really know, but did after he confirmed the exact locations. They make him tell them something to confirm he was at the scene.

    Did Jessica know before it went bad that he had taken her phone and took out the battery or later able to relay just enough for them to build the bait.

    Coming back to a scene 5 days later and finding evidence they missed?? and stopping on the side of the road and picking up something as you drive away, and they had to know the news crew/witnesses.

    speculation hat off.

And plus just today they are cracking her phone records? Like shouldn’t they have done that on Sunday, too….and it took a reporter to get the video from the convenience store on his cell phone on Tuesday…like shouldn’t the sheriff have done that on Sunday as well Maybe Boss Hawg DA and the Jesus sheriff have been waiting for the perp all along to come to them so they wouldn’t look like the racist white cops with all that white privilege.. Unstinkingbelievable. Just like Jesse Matthews got away all those years killing and raping because the PC cops in liberal Charlottesville didn’t want to offend a perp they had pictures and the MO of for a decade.

        Getting the phone records would take a while. That can’t be done unless it comes from a direct bench order asked for by the po po, then it goes to the cell phone provider whose attorneys have to look over to verify they have to comply. Then they order someone to order someone to get them to tell someone to provide those phone records requested by law enforcement. Its a big deal to get private phone records in many states.

        Yes, Sundance called this early to look out for. The cell phone footage the police didn’t seem to have, The reporter finding it first. The clerk saying she made two trips, though I think that may be possible because we don’t see what she did after fueling the car. If she filled it up and and had a refund of money left over (paying cash) she would have to go back in.

        The clerk just now revealing the Time stamp on the CCrecorder was not adjusted for daylight savings Time, or was it brought to his attention, because a witness that was there said it was 5:30pm not 6:30pm

        All the statements that are a little off from one another. car wash, clean out the car,
        Walking not walking, accelerate, no accelerate, saying what the family was saying was wrong, though the family saying the po po told them or saying the doctor was wrong, and no final on the autopsy yet.

        If you look back through todays post, there is one with a photograph of someone claiming the family had heard the po po had this person in the photo in jail. Troll or real.

      You read my mind. From the wording, it sounds like the worker/investigator was sent to retrieve specific items which he already knew were present at the scene. That DOES seem to suggest that someone, somewhere, might have provided some new information. But what? And WHY wasn’t the entire roadside searched 1/4 mile in each direction on the day right after the murder was first discovered? IMO, this kinda stinks, like a sloppy investigation. (And I REALLY hate to say that).

      With a burned up car and victim, one would think that the cops would be making up NEW ways to find evidence, not ignoring tried and true procedures.

        Let me defend the police perhaps. It was night, and a flashlight in a muddy creek bed is not good. If they had “anything” Jessica told them that night, perhaps they started to play it then.

        They didn’t want a big search party out looking for something that could get back to the perp or attorney’s. They knew they were there or maybe not. Either way they could play with the perp.

      Acknowledging our limitations here. And given the most apt scenario playing out based on current data…. They most likely were looking for any headlight, or turn signal parts which might be the result of a second impact to the rear of jessica’s car (the 2005 Kia vehicle).

      Broken fog lamp, headlight, turn signal or driving lights (plastic bits) would be keen indicators of a second vehicle rear end collision.

      • Wouldn’t that take longer than a quick pickup of something in a paper bag? Like measuring distances and placing evidence cones. How far could a headlight part travel at a given miles-per-hour or guess it just was the result of an impact from another vehicle and unknown speeds. But by it being a distance away it must have been a vehicle collision involved? But again distance from the final crime scene?

          Appreciate the work, and would like to take the opportunity to use that photo to show that there was a way to get onto I-55 when she went south. In fact I bet many locals would go that direction instead of using 51 North to travel up to Batesville proper where that exit has “the town of Batesville pretty much along that road headed west/left of from I-55. She could go 75 no problem up that six miles if she didn’t get run over because she wasn’t doing 80.

          Did she travel or did she go to a party, a little of both. ping logs

          East/Right takes you to Oxford and Ole Ms, and there is not much on that road until you get to the campus/city

          She paid for 14 bucks of gas, gas in Batesville is about 2.35 and less in Batesville.6 gallons on a car that will go 30 mpg on the hgwy.

          Where the turn is from the right (headed south) and goes down the road toward the crime site is where this ended. There is as much as 90 minutes to 150 min missing until the end point. (due to the current discrepancy claim of the CCTV recorders Time Stamp.)

          When she left the MM QS when she came to that same intersection, if she turns left (east) that road runs to and past I-55, there is a way to get onto and off I-55 there, according to sites listing exits and entrances on 1-55. During the missing Time she could have easily got on there and travelled to Batesville, or east toward Oxford.

          I also don’t think that the old car wash is operable. Outside of he building frame and a sign, there does not seem to be any equipment to clean, vacuum, wash a car.

          If the Timestamp is verified to be correct at 5:30pm, it means she could have driven to Memphis and back. Not saying she did, just how much Time is missing.

          Then the party or not at party.

If Jessica really left her home around 5:20 and got to the gas station at 5:30 and her mother called her at 6:48, she called her because she figured Jessica should have been back home by then if she were just going to get something to eat and clean her car up. Mom was worried and it turns out for good reason. It’s why she was getting repeated affirmation from Jessica that she was ok. I wonder where Jessica was at that time and if she told her Mom the truth. Poor kid. Doomed.

Then everything about her, this town, the gangs, and anything and everything needs to be addressed. No body deserves to die this way. This crime was either personal or someone was trying to send a message to someone. She may not have been a bad girl, but she was no saint either.

We’ve all, I’m sure done things like that … with better results than this. What is the world coming to?

This young woman’s father was a convicted meth dealer. If he brought this around his kids it would certainly have an influence on there choices in life. I’m not saying her family had anything to do with her death, God forbid. I’m saying that if her home was a criminal environment at any time in her life that might explain why she was comfortable frequenting a gas station where drug dealers and gang bangers hung out. Anything and everything about this case should be examined. From the illegal goings on in this town, if there was any complicit behavior on the part of law enforcement or not, how this gang managed to set up shop here, Jessica’s home life–EVERYTHING! That’s the only way this crime is going to be solved and victimology is very important. This woman didn’t deserve to die like this.

Something happened inside that car that caused a fire (we know she smoked, as she is seen on cctv smoking and bought cigs at store). She panicked and wrecked her car. Maybe knocking her unconscious? She came to engulfed in flames. Scrambled out of the vehicle, dropping her phone (causing battery to come out). The DA said the phone was right next to the car. What am I missing?

Fire wants to go up not down. The way it is burned there had to be accelerant on the outside of the car.

        Little tree to the left in the photo near the tread marks appears fine, while the tall tree is obviously extremely blackened and affected by the rising flames. What marks this as a homicide is the gash to her head, unless it has been exaggerated too. A truck could have knocked the comparatively small Kia car up the bump to the tree, to make it look like an accident. The fiend would have brushed over and covered his tracks though, and hopefully the disturbance was noted somehow before the tow truck arrived. I’m probably wrong but I still haven’t ruled out the Derrick fellow. These killer types can fool you. This is how they get their victims. He’s too calm about it. Does he drive a truck and where is it now? I guess the police would have checked it out for damage already.

There was likely someone else with driver skills controlling that car or willing to handle it over terrain. Or, as Treepers have suggested, she lost control of the car – due to car failure or being chased.

                Just found this site and am catching up on the comment string. Sorry if this has been covered but the tread lines and dirt build up in the picture suggest to me that there were indeed two vehicles present and the second one was used to push the primary vehicle by backing it up the hill.

                They could have been from a tow truck but I would guess that they used a flat bed tow with a winch line to remove the burned out car which would have left the tow truck tires further down the hill. Does anyone know how the burned out Kia was removed from the hill and where it was loaded for removal (directly for the hill, or was it dragged down and then loaded)?

                In any event I agree with the concerns of less fashion and family questioning and try to fit fact with form and function.

      there hasn’t been any confirmation (or rumor) of damage to the car other than the fire. We’ve speculated there could be some, but to the trunk area, would be hard to image that done as an acident given the hill, tire tracks etc. Police also seem to believe there’s evidence someone was in the car with her.. then again with all the false/inaccurate info so far, maybe that’s been misstated as well. Last, if she had her phone, you’d expect there’d be damage from the fire, and the batter to be nearby if she just dropped it and it came apart when she got out of the car.

      Certainly possible… but unless some major details are missing/not being disclosed, gut feel is accident seems unlikely IMO

      From what I read (at Huff Post) the battery was found some distance away, not right by the phone, That convinces me someone had stripped it from the phone, either to prevent her from using it before the murder, or to keep anyone from tracking her exact location. (It’s possible the killer had her under his control for some amount of time prior to the murder, and didn’t want the police to be able to use “ping logs” to trace their travels. Afterwards, he just dumped the phone and battery near the car, since he knew the car would be found soon anyway.

          So little has been released by the police it’s hard to say what’s true, and what’s not. Also, it’s possible that the police, themselves, are releasing false info to keep the perp guessing, and to prevent “false confessions”.

          And, I had the same thought about the size of Courtland making this an easier case to crack, but that would only be true if the perp(s) actually live in Courtland. He/they could be from nearby Batesville, or could have even been strangers to the area who just selected it as a “hunting ground”.

          As much as I HATE to say these 2 words: PING LOGS and GPS data could prove vital to this case. I have no idea what type of phone Jessica had, but it’s important to know since that could help determine a certain course of investigation.

          If her phone was kept “on”, wouldn’t it be easy to get the GPS tacking data from it’s memory, and determine her movements? Also, if the phone suddenly “shut off” (when the battery was removed) wouldn’t that establish a time and location of when she was actually in contact with her killer(s)? I think it is very important that the police let highly trained and experienced phone experts examine her phone, and not leave it to some Ham-Handed Barney Fife type who could miss (or even destroy) valuable clues.

      The height of the burn is directly proportionate to the scope of the fuel feeding it…. AND the surrounding shrubbery was essentially barely touched. That means a non traveling source of fuel… ergo the vehicle was the source.

      Judging from tracks, the rims were “straight on” to the tree. Meaning the engine compartment (the front of the vehicle) would have been at the base of the tree.

      If the trunk of the vehicle were in contact with the tree, as soon as initial fuel source expended the flam would have gone down. The tree would burn, yes, but not at the same height. Only the engine compartment would concentrate such fuel source, for such an extended period of time.

      This is also supported by the distance from ground to the hotspot (most concentrated burn) on the tree.

      The burning vehicle was front end into tree.

        I think you have it backwards. The fuel supply is the gas tank at the back of the vehicle. The engine could catch fire but would burn off its wiring harnesses and hoses and then probably go out completely or just smolder, with only 5 quarts of oil for fuel to be boiled out as fumes and burn it would be the less intense fire compared with the gas tank. For a persistent and tall blaze the fuel tank would be what would burn for quite awhile, burn high and hot by cooking off many gallons of the easily volatile fuel it contained.

          I don’t think the tree trunk is “burned” at all. IMO it is a heavy accumulation of particulant soot from the rubber, plastic, and cloth materials of the car burning. That is why the surrounding trees/shrubs, at a lower height, do not appear darkened, as the heat of the flames was driving the soot material upwards and against the tree

          But I do agree that the car was in close contact with the tree.

        Don’t disagree in the least. It is a good observation.

        But are you speculating that the blackened area of the tree is completely from fire damage verse smoke & soot from the burning rubber, plastic, & cloth contents of the vehicle?

        Those materials, especially rubber & plastic would certainly result in a good amount of particulant soot as they burned.

        So just postulating that what you idetify as “fire or burn” damage to the tree, could be heavily accumulated soot deposited, that appears as “burn” damage. Perhaps that is why the surrounding shurbs do not also appear “burned”.

        It would take a considerable amount of time for a standing tree of that size, considering moisture content of a living tree, to have even the bark begin to ignite.

        It looks like a railroad tie or maybe an old concrete wall footer is just below the surface of the ground six or eight feet from the base of the tree towards the viewer at the end of the ruts before reaching the tree. It looks like that is where the car would have likely stopped with the back end “hitting the wall” there, unless it jumped that obstacle completely and made it to the tree, but the car would have had to have been moving pretty fast to jump out of those ruts and over that obstacle.

        Niece and sister lives in Greenville, MS.

        After figuring out the niece is around 14, I don’t know just how much meaning the letter has. Her sister graduated HS in 2002, so assuming she was 18 that would have put her around 16 when she had Kelsey and would have put Jessica around 5 when she was born. The baby was probably around a lot and was probably more like a baby sister to Jessica. Kelsey seems to have written her a letter, maybe wanting to tell her things she didn’t want her mom to know and asked her to write her back. If some boy had hurt her, Kelsey had probably learned of it through family members and asked her about it and Jessica made light of it. I think the out, was probably as you say, out as in when I come out to see you. The mistake may have been the boy or it may have been fighting with her sister or possibly even hurting Kelsey’s feelings. It’s been a long time since I was a teen and even getting on up there since I had a teen daughter, so it’s getting harder to get into the minds of teens.lol
        Kelsey seems to have idolized her aunt by the things she’s writing, “you were my aunt, but also my best friend, big sister and mom, you took care of me, I could tell you all my secrets.”

    Back to the source of the fire topic here. The paint damage is very telling. The front of the car has quite a bit of paint left on it, meaning that the fire didn’t start there. Had the fire started in the engine, the paint would be totally torched off and metal would be starting to deform or melt by the time the rear tires and bumper were burnt. Now inside the car fire. Well if the fire started only from the inside, but not the outside it would take quite a while before the rear tires and bumper would be involved. OK, now lets talk about the fuel source. If you have ever “played” with any fuel sources, they react differently. Your “thicker” sources like normal gas are going to burn a lot longer than something like lighter fluid, rubbing alcohol, or something like that. So what does that mean? Well a “thinner” fuel source is going to burn off rather quickly and only the very flammable items are going to catch fire from it. Cloth, plastic, engine oil leaks, rubber tires, etc. The clear coat on the paint is going to resist a “thinner” fuel a lot more.

    So, with that in mind take a look again at the picture and see what the paint looks like, where it is not burnt away, where soot from other sources is deposited vs where the paint is totally cooked off down to the bare metal (where rust is from the water being used to put out the fire).

    My theory is that the fuel used was something “thin” and poured from the top down and at least one window was open. I also think ignition was started on the roof and flashed into the interior, and quickly engulfed the entire car. Once the fuel source burned out, again very quickly because it was “thin” the tires, leaking fluids, and interior caught hold. The tires were enough to start the rubber/plastic bumpers and trim ablaze. The hood and trunk area did not see much in the way of fire, the roof saw a lot because the interior got pretty hot pretty fast.

      I agree with you, the most fire damage is to the top of the car “bare metal” complete burn thru, unlike the rest of the car which still has the primer base and no bulging of metal. This type of fire damage is produce by gasoline, which produces extreme rapid expanding fireball, with enough intensity to vaporize paint and plastic, but not enough consistency to to heat metal thus losing its rigidity – thus warping. But enough heat to burn the tree and chard the fence. Now the gasoline appears to have also been splattered into the interior while Jessica was in a lying position. The reason being, that the seat is on a recline position and while the whole interior is gutted, the front portion of the seat covering remained intact, which would be covered by Jessica’s back. Now considering the physical evidence and the head trauma, it was likely the she was unconscious at the start of the fire. Only after her subconscious mind and body felt the extreme pain and heat did it react, without her being lucid about what was going on. This is corroborated by the fact the first responders found her walking and the 911 caller only mentions a burning car and not a person. This also would place the car with passenger door adjacent to the fence and tree, being that this would lead open for her to walk directly unto street and not the woods or further into the property. Also could be why the seat is down, because if the person – if any – was in the passenger car, would had to cross over her to get out. There’s just one question, that really bothers me. Why would someone call in a burning car and not stay to investigate what was happening or take a picture to post like everyone does, and How come they failed to mentioned Jessica walking? Was it from a house or from where?

    About the Phone:

    1. I don’t think dropping phone in wet dirt / grass is likely to cause battery to fly out.
    2. Removing battery from phone just stops phone from sending / receiving and pinging towers, does nothing to preclude retrieving ROM info from phone or call history and ping logs from service provider. Removing battery from phone at murder scene accomplishes absolutely nothing in the way of concealing the crime or identify of the perp. Stops victim from calling for help prior to incapacitation or death.
    3. Removing battery from phone is likely to leave fingerprints unless carefully wiped or wearing gloves.
    4. Why throw phone in dirt rather than burn?
    5. Phone / battery info is LEO disinformation to filter false confessions?
    6. Battery removed from phone somewhere prior to final location?
    7. Battery removed from phone during escalation of encounter after “I’m going to call the police” ?

        Praying that her phone records and DNA will lead police to her killer. If those 2 things don’t pan out, I don’t hold out much hope unless someone in the community snitches.

        Awesome!! What happened in an hour and 4 minutes? We know the fire started before 8:12pm because of the 911 call. How long does a fire like that take with flammables to burn a car to a shell, 5 to 10 minutes more or less?

    How long could it be before the 911 call is released?

    My silly self, I was thinking if a CNN crew were in Courtland or Batesville area, what area hotels could they be staying in for the story? Has anyone seen a live from a CNN crew member in that area?

    If you look at the surveillance video from the gas station you can see a man in a black and white hooped top by the pump in front of her car. He fills a container with gas then walks forward out of shot.

    Couldn’t the fire department have damaged the rear in trying to extinguish the fire? They may have had to access the trunk to put fire out there…

    I have reviewed all the comments that have been made thus far. I am going out on a ledge here and thinking outside the box. Suppose when Jessica was a the gas station that some freak saw her, meaning it was a stranger. He followed her and when the opportunity came about he sped up and slammed into the back of her car which in turn stunned her and caused the head wound. After tossing her in to turmoil, she exited the automobile still in a state of shock, he proceeded to cause her bodily harm and then he proceeded to set her and the car on fire to cover up evidence. I see many saying ex-boyfriend, bad relationship and so forth which very well may be spot on correct. But has anyone thought OUTSIDE the box at all it certainly could have been a stranger. Unfortunately, many of these type situations have very bad endings. If I were investigating this case I would not only look at the ex-boyfriend and those that were close to her, I would begin looking at similar M.O within surrounding counties and states. Not all receive the media attention that was given to Jessica’s case and another suggestion would be to check with NAMUS and see if any other young ladies are or have been in their data base that have perished in similar circumstances whom have not been identified. Just my own thoughts. May be way off base here. Just trying to help.

      I just don’t think a stranger would have given her his name. And when asked who did this to you she would have said I don’t know instead she named the perp. Just my opinion
