Final Update: MISTRIAL Verdict Reached in Jessica Chambers Murder Trial – *Update1* Maybe – *Update2* “NOT GUILTY” – *Update3* “Note Quite” – *Update4* Mistrial…

BREAKING:  According to Tish Clark the jury in the trial of Quinton Tellis  for the murder of Jessica Chambers, has reached a verdict:

MISTRIAL!

After an afternoon of absolute chaos in the jury deliberation process the jury states they are deadlocked. The judge in the trial of Quinton Tellis declares a mistrial.

Unfortunately, despite a jury selected from outside the area, the trial appears to have broken down along almost identical social and racial lines evident in the initial case and investigation.  Family of Quinton Tellis, identified as carrying severe hatred toward Chambers, cheering outside the courtroom.  And the family of Jessica Chambers despondent with the outcome.

 

EARLIER:

 

  Holy cow:

3:15pm EST – Apparently the jury came into the courtroom and announced a verdict of “not guilty”. However, when the judge polled the jury there were multiple “guilty” decisions.  The jury was not unanimous.   The judge then instructed the jury that a decision “guilty” or “not guilty” must be a unanimous verdict and sent them back into deliberations.

 

EARLIER:

Awaiting announcement…

  WHAT THE?....

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.

    Maybe in retrospect given what we knew as Treepers and how incompetent the police/prosecuting attorney were this is the best outcome we were going to get. So at least QT will move on to Louisiana where presumably they got the goods on him for the stabbing murder of the exchange student. Will Tellis be tried again in Mississippi?

    Sad day, but not wholly unexpected–when a case is based solely on circumstantial evidence, as this one is, the state actually has to eliminate all doubt, not just reasonable doubt. The standard is phrased differently in different jurisdictions, but the general rule is the same. Phone records, even with correlated time-stamped pix/vids, just may not be enough.

    If they had foot and/or tire prints that matched Tellis’ and/or Tellis’ clothing to sample for gasoline residue or DNA, it would be a very different case. When an investigation starts out many hours, if not days after the event (triggered by news coverage, including the M&M video of JLC), it’s going to be an extremely tough row to hoe.

    CNN has pulled their CNN Special: Justice for Jessica from their viewable archives. It was just on Sun, Oct 8 on HLN as originally planned. It was supposed to run 1st on CNN on Oct 7th, but it got bumped due to a terror attack elsewhere. I fell asleep before it was over on the 8th and watched it On Demand the following day. It is gone and all traces of it too.

    BUT, I found a clip and I was right. The fireman said he knew it was Jessica Chambers. You watch and tell me I’m wrong.

    Betcha’ that is why CNN pulled it. Conflicting stories.

    Champion also now knows how much more he needs to work with his witnesses and how essential it is to deal with the “I thought she said ‘Eric’.” BS. Can’t count the number of times I’ve had to just about beat witnesses over the head to get them to be honest about what the “think” they heard, versus what they actually did hear. In NOLA the slang for “I’m speculating” or “It’s my opinion” is “I’m more than sure.” Really. Consider how that goes down in court. As someone said above, we’re dealing with a whole lot of misedumakashun here and a failure to communicate.

    “Jury hopelessly deadlocked after 9-10 hrs of deliberations so judge officially declaring mistrial”

    ______________

    Lots of murder trial juries deliberate for longer than 9-10 hours.

    As usual, the truth is found in what is not being said in any official capacity:

    …………………..
    “Unfortunately, despite a jury selected from outside the area, the trial appears to have broken down along almost identical social and racial lines evident in the initial case and investigation.”
    …………………..

    No public official will speak the truth because that would break the spell of psychological denial and violate the doctrine of the unholy religion of political correctness.

    The Left claims to desire a ‘separation of church and state’, but their own pagan religion is inseparable (practically indistinguishable) from the state.

Look at prominent blacks—biggest chips on their shoulders regarding whites. NBA, NFL, Oprah, Beyonce, JZ on and on.

            This was something I wrote a while back but never posted it. I think there is a parallel in which such trials such as these where socio-consciousness becomes apparent along the lines of identity politics.

            The Irony Of The OJ Simpson Trial

            I for one am old enough to remember OJ Simpson’s playing days, and was at the game when the Bills honored him when he retired. I was also in Buffalo during the chase, while watching the Knicks and Rockets finals. What is most interesting about the murder trial, is that the grand spectre of it all regarding media’s transformation, and it’s role forever changed the lives of Americans. Domestic Abuse laws changed, with law enforcement, and media became more intrusive and was a catalyst in what it has morphed into today. Also more than any single event in history, the trial of the century put the spot light on race on so many levels, that it is even being debated today, regardless of whether an opinion is of one that thinks OJ was guilty or not. The fact Simpson was pretty much living in a white privileged world,(for lack of a better term) with his associations, his businesses interests, such as Hollywood, endorsements, and many others, speaks of the hypocrisy of OJ Simpson the man himself, in which the media with unintended results exposed the sub-layer of this mere narrative. (Lets not forget the doctored up Time Magazine cover to portray a more sinister look to exacerbate this optic) When it came time for support, he looked to the African-American community to take advantage of the victim hood grievance of racism to skew his own perception in the arena of public opinion. Before the trial, and his arrest, the subsequent years of the past, he really ignored that very same community, with not having much to do with any causes, nor having any identity with them, he pretty much shunned them with stealth arrogance. The OJ Simpson trail is certainly a study of the American cultural psyche, and exposes the frailty of it to the point of its evolving exploitation, which is something that is still being reverberated today in the advent of social media’s advancement in technology, and now with MSM having a 360 degree turn about. My how we have fallen since this time and the NFL should take note to have a good long look in the mirror! This of course has seeped into American society as a whole divided along lines of social justice and identity politics! ~ Jedi 9

              I am glad you are able to say that. I know some very honorable and good black people too. Mostly older people, except for children being raised in Christian homes.

              But unfortunately they are the exception, not the rule.

              And nobody should take my word for it, they can find out for themselves. All any white person has to do is wander into any inner city neighborhood that is predominantly black and you will find out in a hurry.

              It’s not the color of their skin that makes people hate, it’s the culture they are marinated in.

              ……………………….
              The following quote is from 1993. Keep in mind that as race-relations go, this was said in ‘the good old days’, when race-relations were at a relative (comparative) high point:

              There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps… then turn around and see somebody white and feel relieved.” — the very Reverend Jesse Jackson, 1993
              https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1346&dat=19931201&id=rZgsAAAAIBAJ&sjid=cfwDAAAAIBAJ&pg=5089,44540&hl=en

              One can only imagine how much more relieved Mr. Jackson would be under those same circumstances today.
              ……………………….

              And when 95% of black people vote for a Kenyan for president, how does anybody explain that besides voting on purely racial lines?

              NINETY-FIVE PERCENT.

              Does anyone think most people knew or understood the Hussein’s ‘policy positions’ and voted for him on that basis?

              Seriously?

              95%….

              If white people were even HALF as racist, nobody but white people would ever be elected to public office again.

                I would never say there are not evil people in this world — evil people of every race, tribe, color, religion, etc.

                There is evil, there was evil, there always will be evil until the Lord, Jesus, returns.

                But evil is not every dark skinned “they.”

                All anyone has to do is look at some of the comments posted on this site when speaking of black people to realize there are a lot of evil white people in the world too.

                In my job working for the Federal Government I traveled around the U.S. a lot. I was shocked when white co-workers in racially mixed cities (of which I was coming from — Minneapolis) openly spoke to me about “dumb n_____s” and “shooting n____s” as if I would naturally agree because of my skin color.

                And those types of things happened and still happen. And they are white people saying evil things about an entire group of people. . . just because of the color of their skin.

                I can guarantee you that one of my friends was the best “1950s-ish” mother and homemaker to her three daughters and husband I’ve ever seen.

                One is the most gracious, giving and kind woman I’ve ever met.

                One is the most honest, charitable, selfless person — along with being the best dressed in the nicest house — person.

                All three are Christian.

                Revelation 7:9&10, “After this I [John] looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.””

                Every nation, tribe, people and language will be before the Throne of God. So not every soul of any nation, tribe, people and language are evil.

                That is my point. “They” don’t all do the same thing — ever and/or eternally.

      I took that to mean the family of Tellis hated Jessica and by extension her family, but she was the main target. Bigoted people hate the object of their bigotry. Jessica was a pretty, white, blonde girl. Why couldn’t Quinton have been smitten with a black girl? He went outside the racial boundaries and it must be because the white girl flirted with him and tempted him. She deserved what she got.

      That’s me imagining what the Tellis’s are feeling in the above paragraph.Then there’s the ongoing drug aspect. What to say about that I don’t know.

      I feel for JLC’s family because now they have to go through another trial. The photographs of her burned are likely horrific. The kind you have nightmares about. The descriptions by the first responders and hospital staff are the same kind of thing.

      The prosecutor’s office has to put together a more air-tight case and that will be difficult since everything is circumstantial. it’s terrible that Jessica couldn’t speak clearly when she was foun d, but that’s what fire does to the victim. The prosecutor has got to deal with that and prep his witnesses better.

If you doubt it has become worse, just look at the furor over the simple act of standing for our flag and anthem, caused by a group of men who have profited immensely from this country.

    Below Tish Clark states that Tellis will next go to be tried in LA for that murder, but says if he’s found guilty in LA probably won’t be tried again in MS. I think that would be a travesty of justice. We all know that murderers often are paroled in time.

    Tellis needs a double murder conviction to assure he is never paroled AND for Justice for Jessica.

    I’m thinking that something in the deliberation instructions to the jurors was unclear. Did they have questions? Was clarification asked for? Did they test Jessica’s body for Tellis’ fluids? They found Tellis’ DNA on Jessica’s key chain. The defense was going to use the “Eric defense” because Jessica said someone named Eric did this to her. This just looks bad for the county prosecutor.

    Panola county is infested with violent gang members, Vice Lords and Gangsta Disciples. Tragically Jessica was involved in relationships since she was 15 with numerous gang members, therefore she knew much about the activities of these gangs.

    Jessica was a victim of verbal and physical abuse from these gang members. She was gang raped twice. In the summer of 2014 Jessica entered a Christian Discipleship program. She was a broken young girl…who was severely traumatized.

    Jessica left the Christian program determined to turn her life around, she met a woman who was an author at a local church and was inspired to write a book about the story of her life, to warn other young girls the great dangers of the lifestyle, the gang culture that she was immersed in for many years. 

    Jessica confided in a female friend who lived across the street about her having began to write this book. That got back to the gang members and she was labeled a ‘Snitch’. 

    Jessica was very possibly murdered, killed by gang members to silence her.

        I believe that this was a premeditated homicide. The location where Jessica would be burned alive and her car torched, had been selected prior to the night of December 6th, 2014.

        No, that was Bryan Rudd and he was at the time Jessica boyfriend. Rudd was a member of the Gangsta Disciples. He was very abusive to Jessica, he treated her like she was his property.

        Rudd broke into Jessica’s mother’s house where Jessica was living. Rudd was angry that Jessica left him, she was living with him. Rudd was assaulting Jessica and in the process he found a loaded handgun in the a bedroom, he pointed the gun at Jessica and pulled the tigger, but he missed and the bullet struck a wall.

    • Possibly. Or it might just be that Quenton Tellis is a sadistic rapist who would not take “No” for an answer, so he raped her and then killed her so she couldn’t report his crime. Then he tried to in incinerate the evidence.

      Jessica didn’t deserve this, but her poor choices are what put her in his clutches. And despite claims to the contrary, racial hatred against whites among blacks is rampant after 8 years of Obama.

    Quinton Tellis has Antisocial personality disorder and Narcissistic personality disorder and probably a few more diagnoses. He is also poorly educated and just plain dumb. He has led a life of crime and associates with people just like him. He has confided in others about what happened to Jessica or at the very least insinuated it. He will brag about getting away with murder to other inmates in Louisiana to gain status. Someone who knows, whether that someone is already in jail or to be arrested in the future will roll on him.

    He is arrogant. He thinks he got away with murder, but we all know he is as guilty as O.J. Let him think it – he will run his mouth.

    Is there a recording of what Jessica tried to say?
    If yes, then maybe others could listen and interpret the lip / throat chard word(s)?

    If no, maybe what they say they heard is an inaccurate interpretation?
    The word “eric” would be tough to clearly pronounce with a compromised throat, tongue, lips.
    Maybe it is like the telephone game, where what the listeners (mis)’think’ what they heard, and it was actually something different – and he / she has (mis)conveyed a clear word to others?

    So, to help clarify:
    maybe a similarly challenged speaking individual needs to try saying some words to the first res-ponder(s)…and see what they ‘think’ or interpret those words to sound like – and see what % they get right / wrong?
    (and factor that accuracy into the (un)certainty of her saying ‘eric’…and factor that into whether that word is sound testimony to include in the case, or not.

    Maybe the res-ponder(s), independently, and recorded, might be able to whisper, sound out, or partly replicate (not (mis)interpret) the sound that was heard from Jessica?

    Then some other linguistic experts could listen to the replica – and compare it to sounds made by people with challenged tongues, lips etc.?

            Someone wrote an interesting comment somewhere on this thread. Jessica had changed her life and decided to write a book about warning other girls about these drug.gang cultures. She told someone across the street about it. The poster now wondered if the gang heard about the book and had to rid her so that she wouldn’t “snitch” on them.

            I found it– poster named LEO for truth on this thread:

            LEO For Truth says:
            October 16, 2017 at 7:00 pm
            Panola county is infested with violent gang members, Vice Lords and Gangsta Disciples. Tragically Jessica was involved in relationships since she was 15 with numerous gang members, therefore she knew much about the activities of these gangs.

            Jessica was a victim of verbal and physical abuse from these gang members. She was gang raped twice. In the summer of 2014 Jessica entered a Christian Discipleship program. She was a broken young girl…who was severely traumatized.

            Jessica left the Christian program determined to turn her life around, she met a woman who was an author at a local church and was inspired to write a book about the story of her life, to warn other young girls the great dangers of the lifestyle, the gang culture that she was immersed in for many years.

            Jessica confided in a female friend who lived across the street about her having began to write this book. That got back to the gang members and she was labeled a ‘Snitch’.

            Jessica was very possibly murdered, killed by gang members to silence her.

        I was debating whether to bring this topic up and I’m glad someone did(gymcy81).

        My thinking was:
        Didn’t I read somewhere Jessica had gas poured inside her? If true, then how would she have been able to even pronounce any words properly if her mouth was in pain, inflamed, burned, Etc. When I burned my tongue due to hot food, I had hard time speaking for a bit. Didn’t any of you?

        Eric is a two syilable word. So is Tellis.

        ‘LL’ is a hard letter to pronounce because the tongue goes to the upper teeth. Say Tellis without pronoucing the ‘LL’ and what does that get you?

        ‘T’ is also another letter going to the roof. of the mouth. If Jessica is incapable of forming the letters ‘LL’ , she most likely would not be able to get the ‘T’ sound out either. Now try saying Tellis without the ‘LL’ and the ‘T’. What do you think? And with her mouth in pain, It’s amazing that she even said anything!!

        The sound ‘S’ is another tricky matter, esp. for the hearing impaired by birth, but I’m not getting into that yet.

        Unfortunately, if true, this would fall under the file of “Assumption”. Tellis, if he really did it, got away with it.

          I have not read any statements from jurors, so I really don’t know if the “not guilty” votes were cast as a matter of conscience (based on reasonable doubt) OR if it was a matter of racial animous that manifested as jury nullification. But, if if was the former I believe they either fail to understand the difference between Beyond a “Reasonable” Doubt and Beyond any SHADOW of a Doubt. Perhaps Willful Ignorance also came into play.

          At any rate, this result is quite disappointing, and I would not cry if that SGA type of incudent occurred. This animal is guilty and deserves an end no less painful than that which he administered to his victims.

    This trial has been a total mockery of our judicial system for sure.

    The next time anyone in our magnificent tree receives a jury duty notice in the mail please remember Jessica. She deserves the best jurors, as do all murder victims, listening, discerning evidence and testimony.

    I personally have only been called for jury duty once. It was a capital murder case and we were sequestered for a week. I found the whole process fascinating and extremely enlightening. We had a very diverse group of individuals.

    At the end of the trial, we concluded there was reasonable doubt on whether the defendant had killed the victim in cold blood or in self defense. I wont lie to you, for the better part of the trial, i hated the defense attorney. But i give him props for the crucial points he made that led to his client’s freedom. And the state’s attorney did a piss-poor job of giving irrefutible proof that the defendent was guilty.

    I will never forget what one of my fellow jurors told the group while we were deliberating the verdict. She was a retired AA school teacher, she said “there weren’t any choirboys in that car that day”. Simply said and so true and sad at the same time.

    So to wrap up my tale, think before you glibly try to shirk your next summons for jury duty. Our judicial system is only as effective as the people who make up the juror pool.

        It is not easy. I was on a jury for a man accused of raping an 8 year old girl. I thought it would be interesting to do and I would be fair. It was interesting , but very difficult. She was raped repeatedly over many months. I found it very troubling and could not sleep at night and my stomach was upset for a couple of days after the verdict. Her father and I cried throughout the young girls testimony.Those jurors have heard troubling testimonies and seen horrible pictures of her burned to death. Our jury ended in a guilty verdict and we gave the maximum sentence. I honestly do not think I could do a child molestation/rape again. I am glad I did it, but would not do it again.

      Day 1: met in the jury selection room, watched a dated video presentation, waited a couple of hours, were told to validate our parking sticker, broke for lunch. After lunch we were told we wouldn’t be needed for the rest of the day, told to call in the AM and we would be told if we were not needed.
      Day 2: Called the number. Told to come in at 9. Signed in. Waited a couple of hours. Was told that the computer was going to select who was staying. I got selected. Broke for lunch. After lunch was told to come back tomorrow morning to one of the courtrooms at 9.
      Day 3: Came to the courtroom, was seated. Attorneys and judge present. Told this was a case of dispute between an individual and an insurance company, no other parties. Jurors were individually asked a set of questions by attorneys. Broke for lunch. After lunch, questions began again, judge leans on his hand with elbow on desk and dozes. One attorney asks all of us as a group if any of us had ever had a problem with an insurance company. All hands raised. We were all dismissed.
      Is that typical or am I the only one who has had something like that happen.

There is enough evidence here for sure. He lied about his alabi often, he was with her at the exact time, he lied in a VM/text to her with that creepy sweet dreams VM and then deleted her contact info and messages. It was enough. Champion didn’t a terrible job and I’m not sure if he’s good enough for the challenge. Could have asked the EMTs different questions to show it was incoherent, unreliable, heresay, and irrelevant because of the shock, pain, loss of conscience and mouth and throat injuries which were beyond significant. The next trial will have to be nearly perfect. The defense will likely intoduce even more reasonable doubt scenarios next time.
