Couple expecting baby murdered

Jan 15, 2008 Full story: The South Mississippi Sun Herald 18

“I last spoke to her at Christmas. She was expecting a baby and they were excited about that. She was very happy.”

George County authorities say they are confident they will find the person or persons responsible for a double homicide Sunday afternoon in a rural community here.

Sheriff Garry Welford said Meleah E. Griffin, 18, and Dominique M. Johnson, 21, both of Lucedale, were found dead in a mobile home they shared on Greenwood Lane in the Barton community, near the George-Jackson county line.

Griffin's father said they had been shot, though Welford would not confirm that, and Coroner Jimmie Green could not be reached for comment. Welford also said he couldn't speculate on a motive and that he has no suspects. Read more

I think that there was atleast two people involved in this crime. But if they are found, they will be walking the streets and enjoying life like all the othere murders of Lucedale do.

If the law would get out of the court house more and do away with some of the drugs we would see a decline in crime. Trust me i know..

This message is for Jeremy,
Having low life kin is shameful but not a sin.
We have learned that the killings were due to DRUGS. If people put them selves in that position, eventually you can expect the worse.

I remember Meleah Griffin since she was a baby.I kinda grew up with her mom when she was a teenager down in Central,riding the bus. Her mom was a teacher in elementary school a little bit and her uncle Mr. Davis back in the early 80's and then I went to her dads church in late 80's. Her mom was killed by a drunk driver in 1990. Meleahs mom died and one of the girls has lots of glass land in her face.Cant remember which girl it was. Just remembering the old days.Anyway, this family has been through a lot.Really hate to hear how she got shot and died when she was pregnant too.

Meliah was the one that had her face messed up involving the wreck with her mom. She was only an infant. Mrs Carolyn and Mr JB (the grandparents) have been through hell with all three of these girls. Sad thing is one sister lost her life and the other two are still hard at it....wasnt a wake up call at all seemingly! Mona would be devastated!!!

If the offender is guilty beyond any reasonable doubt, evidence is beyond reproach then dispense with the formalities...hang the sorry so& so at dawn and be done with it!!!!!
