What on earth happened to Jessica Chambers?
Who burned this beautiful girl alive?
On December 6, 2014 Jessica Chambers left her home in Courtland, near Batesville MS to run a few errands. Later that night, after a mysterious 911 call, she was found walking down the street near her burning car, smoldering but miraculously still alive. A long, deep gash had been inflicted to the top of her head, indicating that she had been hit from behind with a heavy object. She managed to utter the name “Eric”, “Derrick”, or “Jerrick” before an ambulance arrived and Jessica was airlifted to a hospital in Memphis where she later died.
If nothing else, and the English vocabulary is rife with negative adjectives to describe the creature who committed this heinous crime, this is an astounding act of cowardice.
Lighter fluid had been squirted into an unconscious Jessica’s mouth, up her nose, in her ears and her body was then doused with gasoline and set on fire while she was still alive.
For a while I was obsessed with the case and studied all of the tweets and Facebook pages of the ex-boyfriends and locals, some of who posted angry racist rants about whites and raged that all whites should have their “daughters raped” and be “set on fire.” There was talk amongst Jessica’s close friends that she was working on a tell-all book about drugs and gun running. Other rumors posted amongst her friends speculated that her book might contain incriminating information about a gang rape that Jessica had told them occurred in a motel room in Batesville.
In reading about the activities enjoyed by the citizens of the Courtland/Batesville MS area, someone described the town of Batesville, with a booming population of 7500 people in 2013 according to Wiki, as “Post-Apocalyptic.”
It was like a cyber-trip into a poverty-stricken version of “Escape from New York Meets Twin Peaks,” all taking place on a trailer and dirt riddled southern landscape.
It’s a side of rural America that would make suicide a viable option for many people. To see the videos and hear the people who Jessica surrounded herself with speaking, combined with those twitter and Facebook accounts…was eye opening. The posts were damning, and, oh by the way, instantly scrubbed the very night of Jessica’s murder…but not quite fast enough for Jessica’s real friends to get screen grabs of all of it.
David Lynch couldn’t come up with this shit.
I walked away from the computer after three days of absorbing the underbelly of the Courtland/Batesville area, feeling as if I had seen the end of the world. I read and studied everything I could find online about Jessica’s life and watched her story morph into the events that occurred on December 6, 2014. The ultimate EVIL.
Since my father and my grandfather were both policemen, I have a natural curiosity when it comes to crime solving and always have. My dad and I maintained a strong bond via nightly telephone calls. Long before crime TV became popular, dad and I would call each other and discuss what true-crime shows were going to be on television that night. My entire adult life was spent picking my dad’s brain for information on all manner of detective stuff, starting when he became a cop in the early 1950s. Modern developments in “detecting,” especially when it came to criminal profiling and human behavior, fascinated us both.
Information such as “Injuries to the face are personal and indicate that the killer knew the victim” is super-interesting to me.
After 8 months of silence from the Courtland/Batesville PD and the FBI and other agencies that were brought into the case, articles are sprouting up across the internet announcing that “web-detectives”, “Facebook Slueths”, Twitter-cops” and “Bloggers” are taking on the case out of sheer frustration with the lack of movement. Actually this began to happen weeks after there was no announcement of an arrest, and I was one of those people. Usually you don’t have tons of information out there on social media documenting all kinds of criminal activities for all to see. In this case it is all out there and it started right away, if anyone dares to look at it. I can tell you that it will take you to a very scary and depressing place.
The citizens of Batesville and Courtland have put themselves out there on social media, even in the hours after Jessica had been set on fire, and there is little doubt that some of them knew who did this that night.
This is a very small town.
Even though the list of possible suspects is endless, and the criticism of the Batesville PD has been harsh, after all of my probing and reading and poking around and studying Facebook, twitter and other social media accounts, looking for everything I could find about this case online (which is a lot,) and after spending three full days feeling as if I had visited the mezzanine level of Hell and made it safely back home again…
I still go back to the videotaped interview on the local news, of two people who the police questioned right out of the gate, and if you read the comments below the video you can see that it’s not just my hinky meter that’s flying off the charts…
I entered this with an open mind and even though I read the comments below the above video early on, I refused to speculate on it until I learned more. I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that these two might spend a great deal of their time getting into trouble. They could have come off sketchy on the video for a variety of reasons, and as it turned out later, there’s plenty about Boone Mista’s criminal record online, but don’t take my word for it.
It wasn’t until I spent the three long days researching Jessica’s murder that I went back to youtube and had another look at that video.
I believe the police in the Courtland/Batesville area know exactly who did this and why. I also believe that all of it is swirling around Boone Mista and Denise Tutor…especially the latter. The investigators called Denise Tudor and Boone Mista into the station right away, reportedly as a result of angry texts sent by Denise to Jessica immediately before Jessica was murdered. Definitely an eyebrow raiser.
Jessica was obviously not able to speak clearly that night when Fire Chief Cole Haley found her, which makes the name she uttered only a small piece of a bigger puzzle. The names “Eric,” “Derrick” and “Jerrick” are quite common amongst Jessica’s group of acquaintances. The police have more information than anyone online, and the two people in the video, Denise Tutor and Boone Mista, were some of the first people to be called down to the station and questioned, after which they immediately took to the television cameras.
The latest news comes from the District Attorny’s office, indicates that they have specific suspects in mind and that the District Attorney is gathering evidence against a particular group of people or a specific person. Mississippi is a death penalty state. This is a death penalty case.
Look at the above video again. Notice if someone is acting suspicious and if someone else is looking around acting as if they don’t want to be there. Try to notice if one person is putting words in the other person’s mouth. Notice: Is someone actually SMIRKING while being interviewed on the subject of “…the night Jessica…died…?” What is there to smirk about when someone has just been horribly murdered? We could probably ask Jodi Arias that same question and never get an adequet answer, but a psychiatrist might call it “Duper’s Delight.”
In spite of the cavalcade of characters surrounding this horror show, in the end I came away believing that the police have known what happened all along. This has all the earmarks of a hate crime, not because Jessica is white, but because Jessica was young, pretty and sleeping with someone’s “boyfriend”…
and somebody hated her for that.
How many times have we seen perpetrators on the news acting as if they are part of a search team, putting themselves out on camera in a pro-active attempt to make themselves appear to be another victim? How many times have we seen these remorseless killers put themselves front and center, pretending to be broken hearted and “innocent” of any wrong-doing for the camera?
How many of these raging narcissists have we watched, spewing their bullshit, not realizing that they are smirking and grandstanding and most people can see the giant lie?
It didn’t begin with Susan Smith, Drew Peterson, Jodi Arias, Scott Peterson…and the list goes on. This is nothing new.
Anyone who believes that women can’t be the absolute cruelest of all creatures when it comes to other females should read the following stories, all the result of some form of a “lover’s quarrel…”
READ ABOUT THE BRUTAL MURDER OF SKYLAR NEESE, WHO WAS LURED TO A REMOTE LOCATION BY HER “BEST FRIENDS,” BEATEN, STABBED AND BURIED ALIVE, HER SKULL COMPLETELY CRUSHED WITH A ROCK, BECAUSE THEY JUST DIDN’T WANT HER AROUND ANYMORE.
Things that make you go hmmmm: Read this comment posted on Facebook and note the time and the date. The 911 call came in at 8:06 pm on December 6. The next morning, before they were taken to the police station for questioning over “threatening and angry” text messages sent by Denise Tutor concerning a “lover’s quarrel,” and mere hours after Jessica was attacked, Denise leaves this post on her Facebook page at 8:55am, and she seems to know details of Jessica’s murder that even the police don’t know. Before this post was scrubbed, you can see where one of Jessica’s friends captured it and made sure that people knew that she felt Denise was lying.
How does Denise Tutor know that Jessica was “out there all alone” and “lured” to “that spot” to be murdered? How could she possiby know that? The police weren’t even sure at that time where the initial attack took place. It had just happened the night before. Certainly there was no mention in the first news reports (which weren’t even out yet) of anyone “luring” Jessica anywhere.
“I know we all fuck up in life but it wasn’t worth your life” (Paraphrasing) What wasn’t worth Jessica’s life? Even the police don’t know if this was a random attack or an act committed by someone Jessica knew. How does Denise know at 9am the next morning, that Jessica was lured to that location and murdered because she “fucked up?” Just as Jessica’s friend wrote on the post, how does she know it was “they?”
This post by Denise Tutor is all kinds of sketchy and more than one person has noticed this on the web.
This isn’t just red flags…this is an alarm bell going off.
Things that make you go hmmmm: Now read this facebook post by “Ashley Lovin Him Tutor” (Denise’s sister) who’s long time live-in (Lovin Him) is named “Derrick.”
Things that make you go hmmmmm and have the extra added bonus of sending chills down your spine…
but it’s not my fault these things are posted all over the web. It’s only my observations and my conclusions that they are sketchy as all get out. These posts can only be described as “incriminating.” Whether you’re a suspect in a murder investigation or just your average drug dealer, apparently it’s proper form to post evidence of your crimes online and blabber endlessly about gruesome murders, placing yourself directly in the eye of the hurricane.
Everything is subject to change but I doubt if my opinion on what happened to Jessica Chambers will change, unless the police do something dramatically different than what they have been doing all along. Years of reading books on criminal profiling, geographic profiling, body language, crime scene evidence and other behaviors have me looking at all people who do “interviews” right off the bat through a jaded lens.
Am I saying that Denise Tutor and Boone Mista are the people who actually did this? No, not really. I’m saying it’s a definite possibility that at least one of them is involved. I’m saying Denise Tutor’s Facebook posts are so suspicious, as was her interview, that it’s no small wonder that she was one of the first to be asked to come to the police station and answer questions. Maybe one of them had something to do with it and one of them didn’t. Maybe neither of them had anything to do with it…but one thing is for certain: Whether they like it or not, they are smack dab in the middle of it.
Charlotte Wilkenson was one of Jessica’s closest friends. Look what happens when Charlotte calls Denise Tutor out on Facebook:
Pure specuation based on 3 days of extensive research: I believe that it will turn out to be four people who ganged up on Jessica Chambers that night and “lured you out there” just as Tutor’s FB post stated. It is just my opinion that two of them will be white females, and two of them black males (one of which will be named Derrick.) If it turns out I’m wrong about that there won’t be any apolgies to the people who put themselves out there for everyone to read and see. They are all suspects, however some of them stand out more than others. It wasn’t me on TV throwing red flags all over the place and posting incriminating information on my Facebook and Twitter pages, hours after Jessica’s murder, but I do have an opinion on the people that did.
They all know.
The police and the prosecutor know and a certain circle of Jessica’s real friends and so-called “friends” know.
Now the prosecution has to gather enough hard evidence to build a solid case.
As I said before, Mississippi is a death penalty state and this is a death penalty case if I ever heard of one. They need to get it right. The coward who instigated this and all of those who participated need to be taken out of society for good. There is no room for monsters like this in a free society. You play the game, you pay the price and in Mississippi you pay with your life.
