I remember Tony, we went to school together and was in the same class. He was a good guy for ther most part but as teens do he got into some trouble with drugs and gambeling. I do think the wrong Jimmi died though. What a lot of us felt was another Jimmy and his cousin was behind te murder and it was a drug deal gone bad, but there was also a big coverup on things because Tony wasn't a rich kid so the cops weren't really concerned. When DeBerry committed suicide they wrapped the case up and considered it closed but I will never believe he did it.

i believe she is doing this because she has lived with it long enough and wants some answers. maybe even some justice, who knows and as for the other family down there for all we know isnt getting involved in in so why should they be in any danger?? and i will agree it is a powerful county, but it needs to be stopped. why not start shutting it down by solving some of its bullshit coverups??? and as for truth.. yeah it hurts.. but it needs to be told. dont ya think??

hope you can help that family some way.
I know one side of the family hired a private investigator, he knows who was behind it also but I think he got very scared and left it alone, he has several names also.
He lives up north now away from here but he could help on this case still I believe.
I heard one involved died a good while back in Dexter, but several still alive and still corrupt.
Perry, what is the name of the investigator up north? We hired one as well but you see where that got us????? NO WHERE!! Just very scared for our own safety, escorts to and from the grave site, phone tapping a shadow etc. Seemed like a bunch of bull to me as a kid. Now I wonder how much he actually knew. He definetly was against the local PD,I believe he died shortly there after but don't quote me on that it's been 20 years ago. Are you for sure Gene hired one as well? Also your quote about being left handed is incorrect. Thanks for listening and all you try to do. Gwen
He wasn't hired, he was a family member and he has the answers you want.
He is in the City now, he was scared away but he has some answers that you want.
Dont know what good it will do now, its hard to get help because this County and several around have what's called the Magor Case Sqaud and they all work together, from the little pig to the sow and its goes all the way to the local FBI that included in the Case Sqaud. www.magorcasesquad.org - can of worms

My spelling may be off sometimes but it doesnt change the truth, Tony was murdered and the locals know it.

I recently started reading on topix so I am just now reading this thread on Tony that was started back in '08. I too am a family member, a cousin, and I remember this tragedy although I was young. I understand that you want closure and you deserve it and I can only pray that you get it.

I haven't spoken to any of you in several years and I'm not sure where you all are now. I hope you are still staying in contact with this thread and you respond. I'll be watching! Your Cousin Chris

Jimmy Deberry killed himself cuz he was a snitch and that is a fact! Not a opinion!!! He could not live with the fact of being an informant!

The things that Steve is saying is true. Those of us that hung out on the hill or hung out with Tony outside of school know a little more info than most. We only had our speculations but that was enough for us. Most of us didn't push for answers because we didn't want to know back then. Now that we're older I not sure if anyone still wants to take the chance. No one knows the full story. Maybe one day I'll tell Tony's sister what I know. Which is very little.

My sympathies goes out to the family. Even after all these years.

Just wanted to say that when Tony passed away I was overseas.I shead a lot of tears for a really good friend.Tony brought many positive things to me and his friends around him, who didnt need his life cut short.He never had a bad word to say about anyone, he always was a up-beat person who always kept his head high.He is one of those people when you talk about them that they you always have a smile on your face.

Tony died because he knew too much.....he was involved, as was DeBerry, with the crooked cops and Tony wanted out. Dexter and Stoddard county has always had corruption Fish, Comfort, Harbold, Stone and could name a few more. I know the family wants the truth but honestly I doubt it will ever come out cops cover for cops, evidence was done away with, people with information silenced. Just know Tony was a great guy, not perfect but a loyal friend. Someday those involved will pay.

I always heard the mccoys is the ones who done it because tony didn't pay them for some dope they had fronted him.I think the law just didn't no part of investigating them.
