Cops hope the final words of a Mississippi teen burned alive will lead authorities to her attacker, who poured lighter fluid down her throat before setting her aflame, police and family members said.
A doomed Jessica Chambers, 19, was found wandering down a Courtland, Miss., roadway, still ablaze, when Panola County deputies responded to a report of a car fire Saturday night, The Clarion-Ledger reported.
She survived long enough to tell police who had fatally burned her before she died away at a hospital in Memphis, Tenn., some 50 miles north of the rural community. Police told the woman’s family that the attacker likely bashed Chambers in the head before pouring fuel down her nose and throat and lighting her on fire.
She died of her burns, which covered some 98% of her body.
Two former American Eagle Outfitter employees went from being thieves to becoming murderers.
Clarence David Mallory, 19, and Carter Carol Cervantez, 25, were arrested in connection to the death of Ashlea A. Harris, who was found dead in her apartment on Nov. 28.
Harris, 31, was found dead after a unit of firefighters responded to a reported fire.
Harris was found with her ankles and hands bound in duct tape, her body partially burned and blunt force trauma to her face, head and neck, police said.
Cervantez and Mallory were fired from American Eagle Outfitters at the Hulen Mall in Ft. Worth, Texas. They were also suspects of stealing nearly $18,000 from the store’s safe.
Certain crimes merit having the convicted sentenced to medical experimentation for a period of time, followed by organ donation and then torture, if still alive.
