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.
