A 6-year-old boy who was in a car stolen from a parking lot in Jackson was found dead Thursday morning in Madison County, according to the Clarion-Ledger.
Officials confirmed Kingston Frazier was shot to death as he was sitting in the backseat of the car.
Three persons of interest are now in custody: Dwan Wakefield, DeAllen Washington, and one police have yet to identify.
“That’s evil. That baby hadn’t done anything to him,” Kingston’s great aunt, Velma Eddington, told the Clarion-Ledger. “That baby hadn’t done nothing. They could have left that child on that backseat asleep. They didn’t have to kill him. Those people are evil. Evil.”
Authorities had issued an Amber Alert for Kingston early Thursday morning after a gray Toyota Camry the child was in was taken from the parking lot of a Kroger grocery store on Interstate 55 North. The alert was canceled later in the morning.
A second vehicle was believed to be involved.
The Hinds County Sheriff’s Department is investigating.
