In June 2009, Byron "Chad" Jones, who was one of the 2 men arrested (then released) for Ernestine Marie Patterson, was arrested for stabbing a woman in the mouth.
Does anyone know if he was convicted? He was arrested for the stabbing incident after Necole's murder. If he's been locked up since and we haven't had any of these murders since.....
I posted this link in one of these threads. According to Vinelink, he's not currently incarcerated. There are several Louisiana inmates with a similar name, but none seem to be a match.
On January 3, 2011, he filed a civil rights complaint against Jeff Davis Parish and officials based on poor jail conditions and inmate treatment. The complaint was dropped in Nov 2011 for failure to pay filing fees.
Six days later he was involved in a scuffle with the jail guards.
So the defendent listed is this gent?
These people are mentioned in articles and the main thread, I am going to list them all here so new information can be added more easily.
Sheriff Ricky Edwards. "It was a cold case when we got it, the body had been there 3-4 days." (Groan - mine.) Working with Serial Killer Task Force. Has not made any determination of "serial" murders yet, because the cause of death is not known in all deaths. Thinks they may be connected.
Det. Warren Gary. Jefferson Davis Parish. Heading the murder investigations. Bought truck from Connie Siler for $9K, when she was released from jail on bad check charges. Sold truck to ex-wife of La. State Trooper for $16,500 in Lake Charles, LA. Tip about truck possibly being involved in murder(s) came in after sale.
Officer Jesse Ewing. Charged with giving criminal evidence including jailhouse tape of 2 inmates talking about murders and LE involvement/cover-up, to a civilian. (maybe civilian is PI hired by families). Consent decree/fine before hearing. Fired. (?) Rumored to have been caught with known prostitute.
Connie Siler. Interviewed as POI in 3 of 4 deaths. While in jail her truck (later bought by W. Gary) was rented out to 2 "black males" in exchange for cocaine and abandoned in a private driveway. (rented out by whom? whose driveway?)
Frankie Richard. 52. Charged in death of Kristen Elizabeth Gary Lopez on 5/17/07. Charges dismissed when Tracee Chaisson gave conflicting statements to LE. Has niece, Hannah Conner, 22.
Hannah Conner. 22. Charged with Uncle Frankie Richard. Charges dismissed.
Bryon Chad Jones. Charged with manslaughter in death of Ernestine Marie Daniel Patterson. Charges dropped for lack of evidence.
Lawrence Nixon. Charged with manslaughter along with B. Jones. Charges dropped.
Tracee Chaisson. 31. Charged as Accessory After The Fact in the death of Kristen Elizabeth Gary Lopez. (Determination/status of charges presumed dropped by me.) Reported Lopez missing. May be the same Tracee Chaisson who works at Burger King in Jennings and married Dennis Eggleston, Jr. on 5/17/08. (see wedding announcement).
They have drudged up investigations and incidents, some going back thirty years, insinuating corruption in our Sheriff's Office. Well, I don't dispute the Sheriff's Office has had problems, but the past is the past.
