(THANKSGIVING 2014) Jeremiah Elijah Blackwell Held On Aggravated Robbery Charge, But Jail Roster Also Lists "Murder"

Christmas Dinner in Afghanistan, but it looked a lot like
a Thanksgiving meal, blog post by John Hoff

It's Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving, JNS blog readers! 

Today at the Hennepin County Jail, almost certainly, some rudimentary attempt will be made to serve up a Thanksgiving meal. There will be turkey and mashed potatoes, and a red streak that MIGHT be cranberries. 

Hopefully the sight of that sad, humble Thanksgiving meal in the jailhouse contrasted against memories of much better, much more festive Thanksgiving Day meals will force many in the jail to seriously reconsider their life choices. 

Or, well, ALLEGED life choices. 

One of the guests at today's "jailhouse Thanksgiving" will be be Jeremiah Elijah Blackwell, charged with aggravated robbery. 

However, the jail roster also lists...

Deande Craig Accused Of Attempted Murder In Dispute Over "Baby Mama" In Front Of Olympic Cafe...

Click here for the criminal complaint. 

Following up with an earlier blog post, JNS has now located the criminal complaint against Deandre Craig and though the charges are serious enough it's only ATTEMPTED Murder and not murder. 

Prosecutors say Craig shot a man in the chest in a dispute which the victim said, with painful gasping breaths, involved "my baby mama." Lying in on the sidewalk while being tended to by medics, the victim identified the shooter as "Drey" but couldn't say much more due to the extent of his injuries. The victim may have thought this was his dying declaration but surgeons ultimately saved his life from a bullet wound roughly an inch from his heart.

The shooting happened in front of the Olympic Cafe (923 West Broadway) which sits in the middle of what may be the roughest block in North Minneapolis and, therefore, the state.

However, video surveillance footage captured by Olympic Cafe played a key role in bringing charges against...

 Following up with an earlier blog post, click here, JNS blog has not yet located any murder or attempted murder complaint against Marshuan Williams despite charges of that nature listed on the jail roster. I did, however, find the Aggravated Robbery complaint linked above. 

The complaint describes how Williams allegedly pulled a pistol on a resident of the 3600 block of Oliver when the woman was...

The Hennepin County Jail Roster is showing Khayree Jabar Copeland in jail charged with "Murder," though JNS blog is aware of a quirk in the roster which sometimes shows "Attempted Murder" as "Murder."

Or something like that. 

Here's the information from the roster...

A Million Dollars Bail, Murder Or Attempted Murder Charges, Yet No Media Coverage For Marcus Antwann Wilburn, A Resident Of North Minneapolis...

Creative stock photo, blog post by John Hoff

JNS blog is amazed that searches of the jail roster keep turning up suspects with the word "murder" on their list of charges, and subsequent searches of the internet turn up no coverage of these serious charges. 

Deandre Craig is one of the names, see my blog post about him. Another name is Marshuan Trenell Williams, see my blog post about HIM. 

And now, for the third time, a North Minneapolis name turns up associated with the word "murder" and there's no media coverage of the charges except, as of this moment, Johnny Northside blog. 

Marcus Antwann Wilburn, who reportedly resides at 2107 Sheridan Avenue N., faces a raft of charges listed on the jail roster as follows...

Wow, time really flies when Hennepin County Jail rosters get published bi-weekly instead of monthly!

blog post by John Hoff

The question left lingering after my previous blog post ("Who did Charles Wilson Ware kill?") has been answered by an anonymous commenter who performed a better internet search than this blogger. Wilson is accused of being a "security guard" at an illegal gambling house which police recently shut down at 2507 West Broadway. 

Wilson, who was on supervised release after a long stretch of incarceration for a murder in 1990, was convicted of killing his wife's nephew...

Marshuan Trenell Williams Charged With Murder, Or Attempted Murder, He Is A North Minneapolis Resident...

Stock photo, blog post by John Hoff

Well, this just keeps happening. Recently, I found a guy on the jail roster charged with murder (or attempted murder) named Deandre Craig. I was unable to turn up any information from other media about details of the charges against Craig. 

Tonight, looking further on the jail roster, I found a guy named Marshuan Trenell Williams, ALSO charged with murder (or attempted murder) and, once again, I was unable to find any media reporting on the charges. No, the charges do not appear to be from one related incident, just two SIMILAR incidents. 

You would think...

Alleged Gambling House Operating In North Minneapolis, FOX-9 REPORTS, JNS Blog DECIDES To Dig Up More Info...

FOX-9 has a pretty good story, click here, about an illegal gambling operation which was allegedly taking place at 2507 West Broadway. Charles Wilson Ware, (DOB 1/9/1950) pictured above, is accused of being one of the armed security guards. 

Ware is on probation for homicide, according to FOX-9. Right away I wondered, well, who did he kill? In fact, like most stories published by television stations instead of print media, it left me wanting more details. 

So I went looking on my own...

Deandre Washington Leroy Craig, A Resident Of North Minneapolis, Facing Charges Of Second Degree Murder Or Possibly Attempted Murder...

Stock photo, blog post by John Hoff

Deandre Washington Leroy Craig, who reportedly resides at 2122 Dupont Ave. N., has been sitting in jail since September 11. So how did this blogger (and all the other media) miss his million dollars bail and charges of second degree murder? 

Or *is* he charged with second degree murder? Mugshots online dot com says he is, click here, but this blogger knows there's a quirk in the online jail roster and sometimes attempted murder appears on the roster as murder. 

So I'm hedging my bets in my text and headline. 

All the same, here is the jail roster copied and pasted...

Image Obtained By JNS Blog Of The Actual Plush Rainbow Penis Booked Into Evidence By Homicide Investigators Following The Shooting Of James H. Cole, a/k/a J Blockboy Cole...

For previous coverage about the plush rainbow penis in the possession of James H. Cole (J Blockboy Cole) at the time of his homicide, and actually booked into evidence, reportedly, click here and here.

This image, above, shows the item when it was offered for sale on NoMi Virtual Garage Sale, a Facebook page. I'm told that at the time of his death James Cole had just swung by and took possession of the penis.  

Yes, it was late at night but apparently some people sell plush rainbow penis at that hour and other people are willing to take delivery the same time of night...

Here Is The Complete Federal Indictment Document Against 1-9 Dipset And Stick Up Boys Written About In Dozens Of Other Media...

Click here to view the federal criminal indictment. 

Every major media entity in the region did a story about the recent federal charges against members of 1-9 Dipset and the Stick Up Boys. (The actual gang members spell it "Sticc Up Boyz.") But none of those media entities--none I could find, anyway--provided a link to the actual federal indictment, which is quite voluminous and full of detail.

Personally, I like to read all the nitty gritty and I also like to provide it for my readers. Not always in that order. I'll actually be sharing it before I have a change to read it, myself.

So I guess we'll go on this journey of discovery together.  

Pictured above, Nitelen "King Nite" Jackson, named in the federal complaint.
