      Very nicely encapsulated, noteworthy are the remarks from Ben Chambers, my comment regards Ben and Lisa Chambers has not posted to the thread… it was nice to see them both treated respectfully and they truly were gracious to all involved in the investigation to date.

    There was talk of her leaving a local motel room with two men not long before she died. I can’t remember if that was proven to be false. Could he have been one of the two men?

    Quinton Tellis might be on the second row. I couldn’t couldn’t verify if this photo of suspects was related to the arrest of unrelated drug felons in Dec 2015 or to an earlier bust associated more closely to Jessica’s case.

    I remember we figured out that the dufus was some short jack@ss who pulled reclined the driver’s seat back far to hide behind the metal between the two windows but that the seat itself was drawn up fairly close the to pedals. We knew it was one of the suspects with short legs. I don’t believe what Darby or Champion is saying about it being a lone job. How did the dufus get away so quickly from the scene? Jessica had confessed to her mother that people were out to get revenge for her potential to snitch. Are the authorities looking into this or are they trying to hide the fact and assume it was a “lover’s quarrel”? There was no hearsay on the streets about Jessica dating this jerk.

    Don’t let the authorities dictate to us the narrative. There are lots of loose ends that are not being answered with this conviction. Maybe Tellis committed the crime but there was ongoing plotting to harm Jessica based on the grapevine. Remember she wanted to get out of the lifestyle, was trying very strongly to do so against all odds of the family dynamics and crooked surroundings in which she was immersed. She had a new job, she was going to write a book, and these nasty element wouldn’t let their “white girl” slave leave. I know I’m being harsh, but let’s not hide behind blinders. It has to be out in the open so that the community recognizes that abetting and hiding this mindset is as evil as the KKK itself. The community will not move forward if this behavior by the likes of Tellis is not vanquished and shamed into oblivion. The gang culture is very much a part of the problem and we see evidence of the cash bills being flaunted in facebook in gangta lifestyle. Tellis is seen in these types of photos. The usurious fake bible thumping by his mother is atrocious as if that forgives their trespasses and consequences of horrid acts on innocents in the name of racism.

    I’ve tried to post this a couple of times.

    Congratulations to Sundance and Crew.
    
    
    I believe had it not been for your efforts to keep this murder in front of the public and the police it may not have been solved. Once bought in the police solved it, with a great deal of sacrifice according to the father.
    
    Now you know what it is like to see a case solved where you wanted justice to be served. It feels good.
    
    Now you can rest.
    
    And she can rest too.

      Jumping ahead there, don’t you think? It isn’t solved yet, that we know of.

      But the indictment is very encouraging.

      I noticed how Champion pooh-poohed all the bloggers and Tweeters which drove the national outcry and speculation about the case, but we can be somewhat self-congratulatory here that if not for all Sundance’s and our/others’ efforts, the big push to bring all the resources to bear in interviewing people, data collection, etc., might not have happened, and resulted in this apparent breakthrough.

      Champion did not reveal very much today but it was enough to make me optimistic.

      Having Jessica’s parents get in front of the mics and cameras was an added sign of stepping toward resolution.

        Grand juries get the evidence. This case was never hard to solve. They needed someone to talk. Apparently, they’ve been hammering the locals and that may have popped out a deal.

        Plus we don’t know what she said. If she gave the guy up, and they knew who it was all along, all they were waiting for was more evidence.

        Sadly, if that is the case, then at least one more woman died because of their decision making cycle.

        Who knows. I’m pretty confident. He’ll go for both murders, get a public defender who won’t know WTF is going on or how to defend against evidence, DNA, witnesses, etc, and hoodie goes to jail.

        Sometimes that is a good thing.

        That is how justice works in the real world.

          Doesn’t sound like anyone talked, or knew anything to be able to talk/help. Champion explained that. Sounds more like a very carefully laid out circumstantial case, with some forensic and data evidence supporting it. Good cases and convictions beyond reasonable doubt ARE sometimes made mainly on circumstantial evidence which leaves so little room for any other possibility that conviction is the only reasonable conclusion.

          He doesn’t have jurisdiction in the other case(different state, to my knowledge). Not to mention no indictment in that murder yet, just charged on the credit card/property aspect.

    Listening “between the lines” of the press conference, it sounds like the Feds were the main players in this investigation. Champion and Darby both thanked the FBI, ATF, US Marshals, US Attorney’s Office and the MBI. Darby almost forgot to thank his own investigators. SMH

    I suspect there wasn’t any applicable Federal charges so the Feds gave Champion the case on a silver platter. It will be interesting to see if Champion can win the case. His presentation during the press conference doesn’t instill much confidence. Remember, Champion was the guy who didn’t know if the case was ever going to be solved.

    Sundance posted this on January 14, 2015, relative to the case ever being solved.

    “If I did not think it would be solved, I wouldn’t be worried about potentially being a liability in the prosecution. I think this will absolutely be solved. The problem is not the arrest(s), the problem is the prosecution.

    The flippin’ police dept. screwed up big time with the chain of evidence and sloppy investigative practices early on.

    My honest opinion is that if they did their job correctly from the first moment on scene, they would have enough to charge right now. Again, in my opinion, the problem now is that all of the physical evidence has been compromised and will not hold up against scrutiny in court, therefore it is essentially useless.

    So they, mainly Champion, have to proceed as if they will not be able to use the physical evidence because they botched it up so bad. Hence, they have become reliant on people, instead of forensic evidence, for building their case.”

    This is one of the reasons I suspect the Feds a very large roll in developing enough evidence to present an indictment in this case. The Feds have the resources and expertise.

    As I posted on January 16, 2015.

    “Yes, if these guys are known, they will go down, I’ve seen it before. Bad guys will always be bad guys and will continue to commit crimes. There are still a lot of old school federal agents and prosecutors out there. These suspects may not be charged with Jessica’s murder because of evidentiary problems, but they will be hunted down, lawfully and legitimately charged for other crimes and convicted. When the judge pronounces their long prison sentences, these agents and prosecutors will silently say, ‘ This is for you Jessica.””

    Fortunately in this case, they were able to develop enough evidence for an indictment for a Capital Murder charge. Let Justice Be Done!

        What Champion said is that they can place both the phone Tellis was carrying and Jessica’s at virtually the same location at 7:26pm, just four minutes before she was attacked. Evidently Tellis’ wife (the Bond villain, Mrs. Jaws) had a total of 19 phones which didn’t make the investigation any easier.

          I hope they have more than that. A defense attorney could take that apart. We do not know what time she was lit on fire but they said they can place Jessica at the Crime Scene at 7:31. I suppose defense could argue Jessica dropped him off up the street at Courtney Village at 7:26.

              My guess is the car was burning about 30 minutes. Champion has to have more than what he gave us at the Press Conference. Also if they can place her phone and his phone together at 7:26 and they arrived at CS at 7:31, does that mean they were together traveling in her car to Crime Scene?

                IMO, Monster had Jessica either tied up or knocked out. Remember Charlotte said something like, something went wrong. Either Monster thought Jessica was dead or he hurt her and knocked her out. Then, he was afraid that she would press charges, so he finished her off or he thought Jessica was dead and wanted to burn her body to hide evidence. Another example of radio hosts, Walton and Johnson’s “Criminals is Stupid.”. Apparently, Monster didn’t know his phone could be tracked.

    Jessica was probably dating the monster on the night that he killed her. What could have happened to cause such a violent response? I know men who abuse can fly and do fly off the handle but to go to the lengths he did???? Is he totally inured to the pain of others? I doubt Jessica traveled with gasoline in her car. Was it as some of us speculated early on that Jessica was knocked or unconscious and then set on fire? Still so many questions…

      Exactly! Article above says they were together at 6:00. So he either was in the car with her or he followed her in his truck. If that’s the case he would have been seen on the Video in Batesville near Highway 6. If he was in the car with her that means they had the gas with them in her car.

        Call me slow but do you mean that he would have siphoned the gas from Jessica’s car? It was odd that she told Ali that she bought more gas than usual because she was going somewhere. Did Monster already have his plan in mind and did he ask Jessica to buy extra gas?

          I don’t know, but I don’t know exactly how far she drove that night. I would think that he would have had to have extra fuel with him. If he did it may have been preplanned. He lived over by Highway 6 where she was seen on video. Did she stop at a residence in Batesville? I have a lot of questions about this Batesville trip. Did he follow her to Herron Road or did he drive there with her? Also if he left on foot he had to have dropped those keys off on Main St. and where did he go after that?

            Batesville, Mississippi 38606-6631 Is his address and Jessica was seen on private video at Highway 6 in Batesville. So I guess we will have to wait for them to fill in the blanks.

    Panola County’s broken justice system.

    In 2009 Quinton Tellis was arrested for assaulting a woman who refused his advances. The charge was plead down to a misdemeanor and he served no time.

    2010 he was sentenced to 5 years for that 2010 burglary and fleeing, he only served about a year.

    He was back on the streets in 2012 when he was convicted of another burglary and sentenced to 8 years. He served less than two.

    There you have it, if you are looking for a place to commit a crime Panola County seems to be just about the best place to do it, other than Washington D.C.

      You made a good point. So many times these criminals serve little to no time on their sentence and commit more crimes. I realize prisons are over flowing but how do these dangerous people get their time cut. Maybe 1st time drug users with no violent history should be given probation.
