Verdict Watch – Jury Deliberating in Jessica Chambers Murder Case…

  UPDATE:  No decision reached. Jury breaks until tomorrow.  Generally this does not bode well for prosecution.  Possible OJ-type verdict becomes more likely.

The closing arguments in the case against Quinton Tellis have concluded.  Tellis is accused of capital murder in the burning death of 19-year-old Jessica Lane Chambers. Prosecutors believe that Tellis had sex with Chambers before he set her and her car on fire and left her to die the night of Dec. 6, 2014, in Courtland Mississippi.  Chambers died hours later in a hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

The jury is now in deliberations.  Local reporter Therese Apel shares the timeline from yesterday’s phone forensics as delivered to the jury by prosecutors.

12:32-10:04 a.m. — Tellis is making calls that are bouncing off a tower in Pope, which indicates he is either at his home or across the street at the M&M gas station.

8:55 a.m. — Tellis on video at M&M getting breakfast wearing a white shirt and shoes and a dark dew rag and jeans.

9:01-9:02 a.m. — Chambers wakes up and sends a text. Cellphone data shows she is at her home on Carlisle Road.

9:06 a.m. — Tellis’ mother’s white Chevrolet Suburban leaves his house and heads up  U.S. 51.

10:04 a.m. — Chambers calls Tellis, and the call lasts for 69 seconds.

10:08 a.m. — Chambers is on the cameras at M&M making a purchase.

10:09 a.m. — Tellis texts Chambers, “I’m ready.”

10:10 a.m. — Chambers is on cameras at M&M talking to two acquaintances. No one else is with her. She leaves and can be seen pulling into Tellis’ driveway. From there they head south on U.S. 51.

10:15-10:47 a.m. — Chambers and Tellis are driving circles on Courtland backroads.

10:18 a.m. — Chambers calls Kesha Myers.

10:33 a.m. — Chambers calls Myers again. At some point they pick her up.

10:47 a.m. — Tellis calls his sister, LaQuinta Tellis.

10:49 a.m. — Chambers drops Tellis off at M&M. She and Myers leave.

10:55 a.m. — Tellis walks back to M&M and has changed clothes. He is now wearing black shoes, lighter pants, a red shirt and hat, and a plaid coat.

11:05 a.m.-5:29 p.m. — Chambers is home. Tellis is texting, “I need you,” to which Chambers responds, “What you need?” “Some lovin’,” he replies. She answers, “Oh Lord. Can’t.”

2:21 p.m.-4:23 p.m. — Chambers’ phone is silent. Mother Lisa Daugherty says she was taking a nap.

4:23 p.m. — Tellis calls and wakes Chambers up.

3:24 p.m.- 4:15 p.m. — Records show Chakita Jackson, Tellis’ then-girlfriend in Monroe, Louisiana, is trying to contact him to get him to send her money so she can visit him.

4:09 p.m. — Jackson texts, “I’m trying to come up. Call me.”

4:21-5:34 p.m. — Tellis’ phone is showing that he is at home.

4:23- 4:29 p.m. — Chambers is trying to reach Myers, whose phone is out of minutes.

4:32-4:36 p.m. — Chambers tells Tellis via text that she will go get something to eat with him if he’ll pay for it. She’s still trying to reach Myers.

4:59 p.m. — A 33-second conversation between Chambers and Tellis.

5:08-5:11 p.m. — Tellis can be seen on security video walking to M&M, still wearing the red outfit. He paces around inside and stands outside, but doesn’t make a purchase.

5:12 p.m. — Tellis walks south. It is dark.

5:20 p.m. — Tellis calls Chambers, and it appears from the length of the call she doesn’t answer. She calls him right back.

5:24-5:30 p.m. — Security video shows Chambers is at M&M. She talks with someone off screen, she picks up a penny, she goes inside and makes a purchase, she comes out and pumps gas.

5:29 p.m. — Both cameras and phone records show Chambers making a call to Tellis. She pulls out of M&M and heads south down U.S. 51.

5:34 p.m. — Tellis calls Chambers back. This is the last call he will make for the next 48 minutes. He tells investigators in his last interview in January 2016 that he was calling her to come and pick him up.

6- 6:01 p.m. — Chambers’ phone shows she is on her way to Batesville.

6:04-6:11 p.m. — Chambers’ phone shifts to the towers that cover the area of Batesville that includes Taco Bell, which is where Tellis tells investigators they ate dinner. During this time she continues to try to reach Myers.

6:17 p.m. — Tellis calls his sister. Phone data shows he and Chambers leave the Taco Bell area and head back south. The phone switches towers during the call. It’s the only call or text by Tellis between 5:34 and 7:42 p.m.

6:22-6:25 p.m. — Chambers is still trying to reach Myers.

6:30 p.m. — Cell site data shows Tellis and Chambers arrive back in Courtland around that time. Tellis says they went back to his house. His mother’s white Suburban is at the house. The area where he admits to investigators that he had sex with Chambers is right behind the house but can’t be seen from the house. Chambers’ phone is also registering her just south of M&M, which is the same area Tellis described. Tellis tells investigators during this time the two are smoking marijuana in Chambers’ car.

6:41 p.m. — Chambers is still trying to reach Myers.

6:48 p.m. — Chambers makes the last call she will ever make to her mother. The call lasts 76 seconds. Her mother says there was no background noise and no music, which she found unusual, leading her to believe Chambers was with someone. By Tellis’ admission, he and Chambers are together at this point.

6:49- 7:26 p.m. — Neither Tellis nor Chambers are using their phones. During the time between 6:55 and 7:41 p.m., five women are trying to reach Tellis. He does not answer any of them. One of those is Jackson saying, “Oh well,” presumably because she can’t get in touch with him about coming to visit.

7:10 p.m. — A vehicle can be seen leaving Tellis’ residence. He tells investigators that it is his uncle, Sammy.

7:26 p.m. — Headlights appear and leave the driveway next to Tellis’ house, the area where he and Chambers were, according to the earlier timeline.  Security video is too dark and grainy to see what kind of car, but authorities point out that the woman who lives there is at work and Tellis’ sister is inside the store.

7:29 p.m. — According to video, Tellis’ mother’s vehicle leaves the home; she goes to M&M where she will stay for around 20 minutes.

7:30 p.m. — Chambers’ cellphone patterns have shifted dramatically west. Then she’s on the scene on Herron Road where she would be found, burned.

7:42 p.m. — Tellis’ phone “wakes up.” He calls Chambers and leaves a voicemail. Then he follows with a text that says “Bae my friend is coming over tonight, I’ll call you tomorrow. Good night, sweet dreams.”

Tellis would later tell investigators that he was letting Chambers know that a girlfriend was coming over, and he named an in-town girlfriend. When questioned if that girlfriend would confirm his alibi, he changed his story and said it was Jackson.

7:46 p.m. — Tellis calls Jackson and tells her he is walking to his sister’s house to borrow her Tahoe. Investigators point out that there is a cut-through trail that leads from where Chambers was found on Herron Road to the subdivision in which Tellis’ sister lives. Chambers’ keys would later be found in a yard along that route.

Tellis’ cell data shows no communication to ask his sister if he can use her car, which investigators say he’s only borrowed once before when he took it to wash for her.

7:46-8 p.m. — Tellis’ phone is silent again.

7:50-7:52 p.m. — A vehicle can be seen on M&M security video pulling into Tellis’ driveway to a storage shed, and it remains there for 1:42. Tellis tells FBI agents in an early interview that he keeps a 5-gallon gas can in that shed. Neither a driver nor a tag can be seen.

7:52 p.m. — Vehicle leaves the driveway.

8 p.m. — A vehicle matching the description of Tellis’ sister’s SUV can be seen on M&M video heading toward Batesville at a high rate of speed. Tellis tells investigators in a later interview that it “could be” him going to get a Green Dot card to send Jackson so she can come for a visit.

8:04 p.m. — Chambers’ phone’s last communications ever with a cell tower. Investigators say it shut off when it got too hot.

8:07 p.m. — Phone call made to 911 by LaTroy Rudd and Glenn Williams, who see the burning car and call it in.

8:09 p.m. — Responders arrive on the scene where Chambers is found burned beyond recognition. Her car is still on fire.

8:15-8:23 p.m. — Cellphone data confirms Tellis’ story that he is going to Piggly Wiggly and finally to Fred’s to buy the cash card. He calls Jackson during this time. Investigators say he calls Jackson five times between 8 p.m. and 8:23 p.m. though he never makes calls to her between 4:25 p.m. and 7:46 p.m.

In the video from Fred’s, Tellis is wearing the red outfit but without the jacket.

8:26 p.m. — Tellis purchases the Green Dot card.

8:57 p.m. — Tellis shows up back on camera at M&M, and he has on white shoes, jeans, a white shirt and a new lighter-colored jacket. He later tells investigators he took a bath before he changed clothes.

A man on the camera at M&M is telling a dramatic story, appearing to describe the scene of the burning car. Tellis does not interact with him and does not appear to have any lengthy conversations at M&M. Tellis later tells investigators that it is when he walks back over to M&M that he hears about Chambers.

Prosecution notes that, in spite of being in constant contact with Chambers that day, Tellis does not attempt to call or text her when he hears such news about Chambers. Sometime in the days that follow, Tellis admits to having deleted Chambers’ texts, calls and contact information from his phone. The information connecting them and detailing their calls and conversations were pulled from Chambers’ phone and Tellis’ phone company records.

9:53 p.m. — Jackson receives the money from the Green Dot card. It’s unclear when Tellis actually gives her the card information.  (LINK)

      From Joe’s description, sounds like there was little, but adequate (admissible statement of an eye witness, who later claimed to have “forgotten”–plenty good enough for me, too) evidence that the guy shot the vic, and nothing to raise a reasonable doubt as to his guilt. There was a whole lot more “evidence” that would’ve been damning that was properly kept out, but was reassuring after the fact. Clearly Joe’s point was that the jurors can and do do their duty to judge the facts without racial bias. Something to celebrate, not get indignant about.

    I know nothing about this except the recent posts by Sundance. I read the timeline. Tillis is nearest to the crime. I think as to motive, and the cruelty and horror of the crime, it wasn’t just sexual avoidance. I suspect she threatened to expose his drug dealing crime connections since she was sucked into that (probably partly his bragging about it). Probably complicit with the gas station guy. This burning of the girl is 101 drug lord revenge. Big money threatened with the distributers. Those gangs in that area should be rounded up. It may take out the lower hierarchy of these drug cartels.

      YUP. Tellis set her up with people. Sent her to Herron. Called to tell her he couldn’t make the meet up because of his gf. Car went to pick up the fuel container as planned from his sister’s shed and Tellis informed them where she would be. He then met up with the other perps by foot. They know not to talk by cell phone. This is not just about race, this is about drugs in small towns suffering economic hardships. Champion and the DA had been promising big drug take downs. Of course they tried to involve a young girl, only 24 and unfortunately being the idiots they are, they put a white girl in the midst of a highly volatile Obama environment. I hope (and pray) the jury is aware.

        Yes I see that. She was a threat to the drug ratlines ( if she turned him in) probably due to Tillis’s appetite for sexual appetites. That may have been the case in the Chinese girl who he allegedly stabbed in Georgia(?).

        • I don’t know why anyone would say that. There was exactly zero evidence that this crime was pre-planned. Just the opposite. It was a sloppy, on-the-fly impromptu effort that is LOL crude in retrospect.

          Tellis was not a big drug kingpin. He was a bottom-feeding retailer who didn’t have enough money for even a beater of a vehicle to make his rounds. That is why he had her in his orbit-of-one to begin with —- serviceable wheels.

          Tellis is a moron. The 3 videos of him trying to lie his way through technical data is headshakingly pitiful. For 4 interviews and part of a 5th, he denied being with Jessica after noonish. Finally, knowing that his story had cratered, he not only admitted to being with her, he gave the detectives the details of what she ordered at Taco Bell. That blunder was used to emphasize what a stupid, bald-faced liar that he had been up to then.

          He was soooo dumb that he went into his LA interviews without a lawyer thinking that he could outsmart them. What was even more revealing is that he kept jabbering as they rammed evidence down his throat. Anyone with a clue would have ended the first interview after the first revelation or two.

        keebler…..This case as has been presented is a bit of a misnomer . All of these Experts who have testified, are only testifying as to what part they played in the investigation.

        Towards the end, when we get to hear from the Cell Data Analyst……he testified that the Perp DID NOT, based on his Cell Phone Date call or text Jessica’s phone at 7:40whatever to say, “Can’t see you tonight……or his other call after Perp supposedly “found out” about Jessica’s death, and supposedly called to see if it was true.

        AGAIN, the Cell Phone Data Analyst, tracking both the Perp’s and Jessica’s phones…for calls, texts, social media…..testified on Saturday that Perp DID NOT use his phone then.

        That timeline of where/what happened with Perp came from the Interrogation films done by the MBI Agent, shown on Day 4 of the trial. In fact, at one point during that interrogation……it was a 2 day deal….The MBI Agent “brought in his friend” a Cell Data Analyst , who also had video of all of the M&M Camera, and another camera somewhere along the way, then went they got into Batesville for their Taco Bell dinner. The reaction of PERP was priceless. He didn’t know that there was a camera on the north side of the M&M that showed the comings and goings of his Mom’s driveway and the back-way dirt-rock road!

        Perp also found out over those two days, (as the MBI investigator and his “friend” wandered in and out) that cell phones could be tracked, and authorities could not only approximate where your phone was, but see your text messages, and essentially chart your day. (This generation of young-cell phone addicted people, don’t always know this)

        Anyway, that was in Nov.2015, I believe. Previous to the Analyst coming in and showing video of perp, and cell calls, and text messages. Perp was on his 4th variation of his lies.

      Jessica was not a stupid girl, despite making some stupid choices. A little naïve, perhaps. I don’t believe she was going to out the gangs in Panola County. She knew how dangerous they could be. There was nothing in her relationship history with Tellis that would clue her to the fact that he’s a psychopath and that he would harm her. Tellis liked to think of himself as a player, using multiple girlfriends. Here he is partnering with a pretty, younger, blonde woman. You bet he’s bragging to Ali and the rest of the maggots at M&M about what kind of action he gets from her. Except he doesn’t. She keeps saying no. To someone like Tellis, that word from a female is absolutely intolerable.

    “She called and told me about seven people jumped on her and Quinton was one of them. She said she had asked for a ride home, they gave her a ride home, they tried to sleep with her and when she didn’t sleep with them, they tried to rape her,” said Amma Reeves Nelson, the sister of the woman attacked.

      unless I missed it (didn’t watch every single minute of this trial), I wish Champion would have provided more witness testimony as to the identity of that “mysterious black guy in the woods” at the time/vicinity of the crime(s), that night.

      IIRC, that individual was questioned (and not named “eric/derrick”) and released…not a suspect.

MBI Investigator, by the of his last 2 day Interrogation, had essentially “friended” Perp. When the sex question kept coming up, Perp would say, no, “Jessica told me she was having her period.” Finally MBI Agent Tim (? something, I have it my notes) asked Perp….”Well, how long do you think a girl’s period lasts?” Perp answered “I don’t know, a few weeks or a month for all I know.”

      IMO that’s a good sign. There is no doubt that there are 1 or more holdouts on the “Eric / Derrick” issue, but asking for this evidence appears that the jury is laying out the time line that place QT & ONLY QT with Jessica up to the time of the crime. If they all accept the cell data as incriminating & accurate, they cannot escape the conclusion that QT was the last & only person with her at time of the deed.

      Hopefully they can reconcile the “Eric/Derrick” issue as distraction fodder BS & realize that QT is the only person that was with her up to the Arson time. If the get past the ambiguous “Eric / Derrick” issue, he gets convicted IMO

      My personal opinion of what the “Eric / Derrick” sounds were are Jessica asking for fluids…AS in “Drink” which covers both so called name very well…..She certainly would not have been in a sane & logical state of mind at the time to process questions from first responders.

        He heard “younders” and “herssy”, but the one thing Fireman Cole thinks he heard clearly was “Eric”….no wait maybe it was “Derrick”.

        Sorry but everything Jessica said should be discounted. She was traumatized, in shock and utterly destroyed.

          I agree JohnP. I still think she had been unconscious, and was delirious and said either “wreak” or a distorted ” wha-reck” or some variation of “car-wreck”

          I think Jessica thought she’d been in a car wreck, if she was even that aware.

            I also think you have to consider that the listener’s brain tends to “fill in” words. I’m sure Cole knew a number of Eric’s and Derrick’s who had unsavory reputations in Courtland.

          I totally agree…at the beginning of this trial, when Champion paraded one witness after another to testify to this “eric/derrick” thing, I cringed b/c their testimonies were so pathetic, lackluster, almost simpleton deliveries, mumbling, chomping on gum, inaudible half the time..

          but then I started to think maybe he did this, not only to get out in front of this issue, but also to demonstrate just how shakey the “eric utterance” really is.

          which maybe was a brilliant move on Champion’s part ?

            Isn’t scary to use the words “brilliant” and “Champion” in the same sentence? I’m starting to think Champion is one of those lawyers who’s greatest strength is being underestimated by his opponents.

    So basically, this animal was having brutal sex with Chambers and thought he choked her to death.
    Instead of driving to a hospital or calling 911, instead of explaining the rough sex and be humiliated and maybe charged like his father was of rape , he decides to burn her & the car to get rid of the evidence.
    Like throwing away a used food wrapper.
    Disgusting .
    After this trial he has another one for the Asian student he tortured/killed for her pin number and debit card.
    Chimps going to be a simpin in the concrete jungle.
    This animal needs to be put down .

    I’m reading here that Jessica and the animal were “having sex,” and/or having “brutal sex,” but I’ve also read she kept turning him down for sex. If he raped her, they weren’t “having sex.” Two very different things, for the record.

    The “Eric” is damning for the perp because there’s an “e” and and “i” pronounced as in “Tellis”. Only vowels could be accurately pronounced by Jessica!! She couldn’t produce the consonant “t” properly and we know even regular people turn letters into “r” for some reason. HE’S GUILTY!! Next up, is teapoo and the rest of the haters.

    https://thetruth24.net/2017/10/14/jessica-chambers-trial-gasoline-found-on-clothes-near-teen-burned-alive-expert-says/

    On Thursday, prosecutors used witness testimony from a burn doctor and an investigator to help discredit the defense”s theory that the killer was named Eric or Derek. Dr. William Hickerson oversaw Chambers” treatment at the hospital. He said she suffered so much damage to her mouth, throat and chest that she would have had trouble clearly saying words.

    Under cross-examination by Palmer, Hickerson acknowledged that Chambers” injuries could have worsened from the time she spoke with firefighters to when she arrived at the hospital two hours after she was found. Hickerson also acknowledged he was not at the scene and didn”t hear Chambers speak there.
