Amber Alert Cancelled After Police Find Missing Mississippi Boy Shot To Death In Stolen Vehicle


Amber Alert Cancelled After Police Find Missing Mississippi Boy Shot To Death In Stolen Vehicle

5 hours after the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations set out an Amber Alert in Jackson; early Thursday morning; authorities cancelled the alert following the discovery of the stolen gray 2000 Toyota Camry; containing the lifeless body of the kidnapped victim; 6-year-old Kingston Frazier.

While parked at the Kroger supermarket on I-55 at 1:15 a.m.; Frazier’s mother ran inside with her son in the back, and the car still running. Surveillance footage displayed two men in a Honda Civic coupe approach the vehicle; with one hopping out, entering the Camry and fleeing the scene with Frazier in the back seat.

Since returning to the missing vehicle, the child’s mother alerted the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation; who created the amber alert at 4:30 a.m. that came to an end about 5 hours later when authorities found the stolen vehicle abandoned in Gluckstadt.

Finally, around 9:30 a.m., Police located Frazier in the back seat of the vehicle, deceased, without “at least 1” gunshot wound.

Consequently, after the discovery, Dwan Diondo Wakefield, 18, was taken into custody at about 11 a.m., in addition to a second suspect, DeAllen Washington, 18; who turned himself in around noon, alongside his family and attorney.

Furthermore, a third arrest, of Byron McBride Jr, was made around 4 p.m. at Somerset Apartments, authorities reported.

As a result, a multi-jurisdictional investigation is underway with the Hinds County Sheriff’s Office, the Jackson Police Department, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, Mississippi Highway Patrol, and the Madison County Sheriff’s Office collectively working.
