2013 Year in Review: Moon Street Massacre

The year 2013 was marred with a string of violent murders in the capitol city. One of the bloodiest scenes took place on a back alley called Moon Street.

A woman discovered three bodies at 175 Moon Street. All had been shot in the head; Eldra Gibson, Sherrod Brown and Ashley Taylor killed execution style. About 3 hours later the body of next door neighbor Mike Wilson was found. He had been stabbed repeatedly.

The house where the triple shooting occurred had been ransacked as though someone was looking for something. Our investigation revealed a startling link.

We found 175 Moon Street was the was the site of a deadly crime scene 4 years ago, March 2009. That's when the homeowner, Eldra Gibson was gunned down. He survived, only to be killed during the October massacre.

Two months ago, we were told by a cousin that Eldra Gibson was killed over money. He went on to say Javondus Beasley, the accused killer was their longtime family friend, and that he was the one who kicked in a bedroom door and gunned down Gibson, Brown and Taylor.

Javondus Beasley remains behind bars awaiting trial on 3 capital murder charges. Closing the books on one of the most violent outbreaks of crime this year in Jackson.
