Her killers are presently unknown, but that may change soon. Jessica’s final words, coupled with evidence being gathered from her cell phone and this surveillance video, may lead authorities to her killers.
The video may reveal clues about Jessica’s death. The clip is from a gas station off of Highway 51 in Courtland, Mississippi. In it, Jessica can be seen heading inside before apparently recognizing somebody, waving to them, and walking over to talk. Soon after, another camera angle reveals a man in a striped shirt filling up what appears to be a gas can and walking off into the same direction as Jessica.
The surveillance video was recorded about 90 minutes before Jessica suffered her heinous fate, being burned alive less than one mile from the gas station.
“When the fire department got there, she was walking down the road on fire,” her father said. “Only part of her body that wasn’t burned was the bottom of her feet. They squirted lighter fluid down her throat and in her nose, and apparently they knocked her out. She had a big gash on top of her head.”
Here’s surveillance footage from that dreadful hour:
It’s her final words, her father thinks, that might lead detectives to discover Jessica’s killer(s).
“She told them, she told them, told him who done it,” Chambers said.
Investigators won’t reveal publicly what Jessica said to them as she burned alive and they’re still being mum about the gruesome details of her death. What we do know, however, is that when help arrived, Jessica’s body was found burning next to her car, also engulfed in flames, with severe burns covering 98% of her body. The only areas not severely burned, authorities said, were the bottoms of her feet.
