    BATESVILLE, MS (WMC) -
    Sunday marks one year since 19-year-old Jessica Chambers was burned alive.

    Click here to see the first stories, latest headlines, and updates on the Jessica Chambers' murder investigation.

    "It just tore me to pieces, at first when they called I thought she was just burnt a little," Jessica's father Ben Chambers said.

    Chambers said hope keeps him going. Hope that his daughter's killer will be identified, found, and punished.

    "That's my whole question 'Why?' What could a 19-year-old do to make you burn her alive? What kind of person would do that and why?," Chambers said.

    Chambers was burned alive along a rural road in Courtland, Mississippi on December 6, 2014. Surveillance cameras at a nearby gas station recorded Chambers moments before her death.

    After 365 days, investigators still don't know who killed Jessica Chambers.

    One year later: Jessica Chambers case far from cold
    Therese Apel, The Clarion-Ledger 7:02 p.m. CST December 5, 2015

    Just a year ago, a tiny blonde ex-cheerleader named Jessica Chambers worked at Goody's in Batesville.

    The sassy 19-year-old had a dog named Roscoe at the home she shared with her mom, and she was getting ready for Christmas — her favorite holiday. She was like so many other teenage girls...

    Post Gang offensive underway in Panola County

    Gang offensive underway in Panola County
    Therese Apel, The Clarion-Ledger 11:13 a.m. CST December 15, 2015

    Seventeen people have been charged in north Mississippi as a part of a major operation targeting suspected gang members, officials said.

    FBI Special Agent in Charge Don Alway announced the offensive early Tuesday morning.

    Officials say the operation focuses on Panola County and is a byproduct of the deep investigation that has come through the probe into the death of Jessica Chambers, a 19-year-old burned alive on Dec. 6, 2014, in Courtland. Just after 8 p.m., Chambers was doused with gasoline and set on fire in her car next to the gate of some private land on Herron Road. She got out of the car and was found on the road with burns over most of her body. She died hours later at a hospital in Memphis.

    Who Killed Jessica Chambers? One Year After the Small-Town Teen's Fiery Death, Police Reveal New Details
    BY SANDRA SOBIERAJ WESTFALL @sswestfall 12/21/2015 AT 08:00 AM EST

    The residents of rural Courtland, Mississippi, were horrified when hometown teenager Jessica Chambers was murdered set on fire in her car on the side of the road on Dec. 6, 2014.

    After a passing motorist alerted 911, first responders fought to save the 19-year-old's life, but couldn't.

    "They told us she was like the walking dead," says Jessica's mother, Lisa. Asks her father, Ben, "What could a [small] 19-year-old girl do to make you burn somebody alive? This is beyond murder. This is revengeful, hateful killing."

    Authorities investigating the case have agreed with Jessica's family, calling the attack on Jessica "very, very personal."

    Post Family copes as mystery of Jessica Chambers' death lingers

    Family copes as mystery of Jessica Chambers' death lingers
    By Ron Maxey of The Commercial Appeal

    COURTLAND, Miss. A collection of artificial flowers sits stacked in Jessica Chambers' bedroom, destined for a springtime memorial garden her mother hopes to cobble together with help from neighbors.

    It's one of the ways Lisa Chambers keeps herself busy as she awaits some measure of justice for the gruesome 2014 slaying of her young daughter, 19 years old when she was doused with fuel and set on fire the evening of Dec. 6.

    A little more than a year later, answers remain few as investigators try to unravel a tangle of clues and rumors about who could have committed such a horrific crime and why. District Attorney John Champion along with local and federal investigators continue to work the case. A $54,000 reward sits on the table for information. But the only results to bubble to the surface so far were 17 arrests in December of suspected gang members charged with a variety of crimes but not implicated in Chambers' death.

    Boyfriend indicted in Jessica Chambers case
    February 23, 2016 8:03 PM
    By THERESE APEL Clarion-Ledger

    A Panola County native suspected in another homicide has been indicted in the December 2014 burning death of Courtland teen Jessica Chambers.

    Quinton Tellis, 27, originally of Courtland, was indicted on capital murder charges by a special grand jury in Panola County as he sat in the Ouachita Parish Jail in Monroe, La., where he is being held in the August death of a University of Louisiana-Monroe exchange student.

    Tellis is believed to have been the last person with Chambers the night she was killed. The two had a relationship in the weeks leading up to her death, officials said.

    Such a relief to know LE have arrested someone for the murder of Jessica. I kept the faith LE were doing a great job investigating and they were going to make an arrest eventually of Jessica's murderer. MOO.

    Quinton Tellis, 27, has been indicted on a capital murder charge in the December 2014 burning death of Jessica Chambers in Mississippi, a prosecutor said Wednesday.

    The charge is capital murder because her death occurred during the commission of another crime, third-degree arson, according to Panola County District Attorney John Champion. He added that he was "very, very confident" that there would be no additional charges or suspects.

    "We do feel like, at this point, that he acted alone in this case," Champion said.

    Champion said he is not sure whether he will pursue the death penalty. That decision will come "down the road," after Champion consults with the Chambers family, he said.

    Jessica Chambers suspect tied to Louisiana homicide

    Quinton Tellis, 27, of Courtland, is charged with capital murder in the death of the Panola County teen. He was indicted by a grand jury this week as he sat in the Ouachita Parish Jail in Monroe, Louisiana, on charges related to the stabbing death of Meing-Chen Hsiao, 34, of Taiwan.

    Tellis was living in Monroe with his new wife when he was arrested in August 2015 by Monroe Police Department and charged with crimes connected to Hsaio's death. The University of Louisiana at Monroe graduate lived in an apartment complex, and she and Tellis knew each other, said Monroe Police Detective Chris Bates.

    Courtland apprehensive after Jessica Chambers charges

    Jessica's family says they are grateful and relieved that there has been an indictment, and that they trust that Tellis is the right suspect.

    Lisa Daugherty, Jessica's mother, said she's glad there's an indictment, but she's still carrying the weight of it.

    "Justice for Jessica is coming," she said. "One hurdle, and on to the next. It's coming."

    Her father said he is "overwhelmed."

    "I'm just waiting on Mr. Champion to do his thing. I've got all the faith in him and (Assistant District Attorney) Jay Hale in the world," Ben Chambers said. "They will take care of it, I know that."

    According to a probable cause affidavit in that case, Tellis used a bank debit card belonging to the missing woman on April 7, the day before the newspaper reports her body was found, and then again on August 18 and 19, withdrawing $500 both times.

    Authorities procured "photo evidence" and interviewed Tellis on August 20, at which point, "he admitted to using the Chase Bank debit card on the three listed transactions and stated that he was the individual seen in the ATM photos," the affidavit said.

    They said he was raised in a good environment like any other human being. They also told FOX13 they didn't want to say anything else, for fear it could hurt his case.
