Les' we forget that there are hundreds of Unsolved Civil Rights Murders that have yet to be prosecuted and justice served, and there are many more "suspicious deaths" and "mysterious murders" that occured during that era and continue to this day. Therefore, this blog serves to bring justice by going beyound posting stories, but also having a follow up plan involving legal actions which will not be disclosed at this time. Justice will be served les' we forget.

Andre Jones, August 22, 1992
Andre Jones was an 18-year-old excited about entering his freshman year at college when he was wrongfully arrested on August 22, 1992 by Jackson Police, transferred to the Simpson County Jail and found hanged after his arrival. The Simpson County Jail officials ruled it a suicide, but the family was able to afford an independent autopsy by an expert which isn't cheap, Doctor James Bryant, who rule it a homicide. Doctor Emily Ward, the State Coroner, declared a suicide, but a Mississippi Medical Board revokation of her license is in the works. There's a possibility there may be conflicts of interest and unethical decisions that Doctor Ward made to quickly rule Jones' homicide as a suicide to protect the reputations of certain officials. In the meantime, you can contact Jackson County District Attorney Anthony N. Lawrence, III (Tony) and ask for justice for Unsolved Civil Rights Murders and justice for Andre Jones.
