Teens arrested in kidnapping, killing of 6-year-old

Posted May 20, 2017

UPDATE: WJTV reports that Jacksonville Police Department Commander Tyree Jones says 7-year-old Kingston Frazier was found dead in the back seat of the vehicle.

Circulating video showed the moment the mother learned of her son's fate, with the mother collapsing and sobbing uncontrollably (see above).

Archie's family members told local news media Friday that she had picked up her son from his grandmother after going out with friends to celebrate her birthday, and was dashing into the Kroger to buy party supplies to celebrate Kingston's kindergarten graduation, which was scheduled Friday.

Kingston's mother's Toyota Camry was stolen from a supermarket parking lot in Jackson early Thursday morning, according to the Jackson Police Department.

Police arrested three suspects on Thursday night - Dwan Wakefield, D'Allen Washington, and Byron McBride - all 17 years old. Both cars then took off.

Thursday, May 18 - 11:25 a.m. - 17-year-old Dwan Diondro Wakefield, of Ridgeland, is taken into custody on Holmes Avenue in the kidnapping and slaying of the little boy. All three are behind bars without bail at the Madison County Detention Center.

Wakefield was a quarterback a year ago at a high school in Madison County, north of Jackson, county Superintendent Ronnie McGehee told The Clarion-Ledger.

"It's hard to know that people out there are evil, that would kill a child", Velma Eddington, the boy's great-aunt, told The Clarion-Ledger after finding out the news.

The parents of a missing six-year-old boy gunned down in a bungled auto theft have learned about his tragic death after interrupting USA police giving a press conference on the crime to awaiting media.

Authorities are looking for a gun in the killing of a 6-year-old MS boy.

"It's never a good day when something like this happens, our hearts go out to the family", one officer told the media. "That's evil. That baby hadn't done anything to him". Frazier was in the back seat.

"There's something wrong? Let me know right here", Kingston's father says, before walking away mumbling out loud "my son's dead, man". "Evil. They need to find that other one before we find him...it's evil what they did". They didn't have to kill him.

"This is the worst thing to wake up to, we've been looking for him for nine hours", the child's aunt Deanna Moore told the station. Police say she left the car's engine running. "To me, it's hatred". The innocence and life of a six-year-old child have been taken by a horrific crime.

"The Jackson Public School District is deeply saddened by the tragic death of North Jackson Elementary scholar, Kingston Fraizer", reads the statement.
