    Angry Relative Charged With Murder Of Missing Family

    Relative Charged With Murder Of Missing Family
    3 Capital Murder Counts Filed Against Earnest Lee Hargon

    UPDATED: 6:47 p.m. EST March 1, 2004

    YAZOO CITY, Miss. -- A relative has been charged with three counts of murder in the disappearance of a Mississippi family.

    Earnest Lee Hargon has been charged with capital murder in the deaths of Michael and Rebecca Hargon and their 4-year old son, James Patrick. The family has been missing since Feb. 14. Earnest Hargon is Michael Hargon's adopted cousin.

    A funeral home van was seen leaving the search area for a missing Mississippi family, but authorities aren't saying whether any bodies have been found.

    Investigators swarmed over property in rural Covington County Monday, searching for clues in the disappearance of the family. As they did so, a court hearing for Earnest Hargon, who was facing other felony charges, was delayed. He was arrested on drug and firearms possession charges over the weekend.

    "Basically, we have had some new developments that have come to light in the last 10 minutes to 15 minutes which are putting the proceedings here on hold temporarily," said Warren Strain, the highway patrol spokesman.

    Investigators had completed one search of Earnest Hargon's wooded property near Taylorsville, Miss. It includes a veterinary clinic where his wife works as a veterinarian.

    Investigators have also been checking land that Michael Hargon recently inherited from his uncle to determine if there's any link to the disappearance.

    Earnest Hargon was being held without bond Monday. Capital murder is punishable by death in Mississippi.



    ALOHA !! FROM SAN DIEGO

    MOTTO TO LIVE BY:

    "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming.

    WOOHOO, what a ride!!!"

    How very sad. This story has gotten a lot of coverage around here because the wife is originally from this area, Poplar Bluff Missouri, her parents and other relatives still live here but are down there now. The uncle said tonight on the local news that they are making funeral arrangements down there but plan to also hold a memorial service up here for family and friends.
    A beautiful family wiped out because of greed and anger!!! The little 4 year old boy was so beautiful. He's with the angels now.
    this is just my opinion, it may be wrong, user beware!

    This is so sad. I kept hoping that just maybe they would be found alive. How anybody can kill is beyond me, but especially a child. Prayers for them.

    Earnest Lee Hargon's Stepfather Speaks

    http://www.wlbt.com/Global/story.asp?S=3016572

    (Video)
    Glancy believes any possible conflict between Earnest Lee and Michael was over Benny Fisher, a longtime family employee at the Madison County farm.
    "He was probably closer to him than a brother would be," Glancy says about his stepson.
    Fisher and Earnest Lee spent years avoiding Hargon's father, who Glancy claims was a heavy drinker.
    "(Hargon) and Benny hid from him. He was abusive."
    Glancy says the will demanded that Fisher was cared for.
    "What I think is that, I've heard rumors , that Earnest went up there (Hargon home) to talk to Michael about Benny. Benny was not being treated properly. I'm sure there was a confrontation and things just went from bad to worse."
    Just my opinion

    As a newbie here, I would like to point out that due to MS state laws, he gets an automatic appeal. Our news was reporting there is a state law that requires an automatic appeal on any death sentence, not sure how it is elsewhere.

    Also, I cant really say much about this, since I was employed by one of the agencies responsible for his imprisonment, and I dealt with him on a one on one basis almost daily, but I can say this.
    When he arrived into custody, he was a very thin man, and has gained much weight while in jail. I spoke with him and refuse to believe that he could be so dismissive of the situation. When he would speak to you, it was like he wasnt in jail, hadnt killed anyone, he spoke (deferentially) but pretty much like he was just in a very restrictive gated community.

    Im not sure what else I can legally say, and I have probably crossed the line of legality anyway, but if I have, I apologize and feel free to remove any comments that crossed legal lines.

    MS - Michael, 27, Rebecca, 29, & James Hargon, 4, murdered, 14 Feb 2004

    Just heard this tonight on the local news

    Another Tragedy for Hargon Family


    More tragedy for the Hargon family in Yazoo County. WLBT News has learned the 26-year-old sister of murder victim Michael Hargon has died at University Medical Center.
    Jennifer Jenkins McBride was taken to the hospital early Monday morning and died Monday afternoon.

    Yazoo County Sheriff James Williams tells WLBT his office is waiting for autopsy results to determine the cause of death.

    Jennifer Hargon represented her family during the murder trial of Earnest Lee Hargon who was convicted and sentenced to death in December of last year for killing his cousin Michael, his wife Rebecca and their four-year-old son James Patrick. Their mother, 51-year-old Diana Hargon died of colon cancer a month before the murder trial began. Their father was murdered 12 years ago in a store robbery.

    OMG!!! That poor family. I felt so bad for Jennifer when her mother died, because she had no family left (except her husband, kids?). Not that her husband and kids don't count, but you know what I mean. The only thing that I can find to say that's positive about this is, at least they are all reunited in Heaven. I don't know of any other family that has gone through so many tragedies.

    MsPooh, did you hear what she died of? 26 is very young and I've never heard of her being sick before. I saw her obit today in the Clarion Ledger but it doesn't say the cause of death.

    Yes I am and I've searched every online newpaper I can to find out what happened. Haven't been able to find out anything expcept the blurb from WLBT and today her obit was in the Clarion Ledger.

    I can't imagine what Jennifer has gone through, I'd have lost my mind by now. Whatever she had that caused her to die, I hope she didn't suffer because IMO she's had enough suffering over the last few years.

    Ya know when Maggie announced it we were like "oh my"! It just isn't right, an entire family gone in such a short period of time, Ernest Hargon should be held responsible for Diane and Jennifer, they both died with broken hearts............God Bless Them.
