This accident happened on Nov. 9th; just after midnight. Seems there are many questions still unanswered and the Rankin Sheriff & Brandon City police won't reply. Witnesses are saying they saw the police just minutes before the accident speeding by without lights or sirens, the police have witnesses saying the police cruiser did have his lights on. The police are also saying there was an on-board video but now are saying it was damaged in the wreck...Sounds like the police have many questions to answer.

Brandon Police Dept saying very little but this has got to be a WORLD RECORD 1-WEEK INVESTIGATION into this wreck involving an officer and a 19 year old. Once the Tox report came out the police CLOSED the investigation. Very convenient!

This 19 yr old was from Winston Co. and this was his first visit to Rankin Co. & the city of Brandon, Ms. He was not a punk or thug teen as was implied by the RSO's investigation. He was driving through Brandon to pick up friends from college who lived & worked there, at the local Dairy Queen. He was attending ECCC, welding was his future of choice. His last 2 years of high school he attended the welding program at the local Vo-Tech in Winston Co. He was good at this & had found something that he loved, his senior year placing 2nd in State & 2nd in his division. He had a wonderful future ahead of him and he is so loved & missed. He was a good son, a good brother and deserved so much better than what he got from the officers & county officials of Brandon, Ms. His life & death deserved more than a superficial 1 week investigation.
