An 18 year old and a juvenile have been charged with murder. Jessica Blair Jackson, 18, of Conway and a female juvenile have been charged with the murder of Joseph Brown, 87, of Greeleyville. Officers discovered Brown's body in the trunk of his Cadillac.
According to a Williamsburg County Sheriff's incident report, around 1:00am Sunday morning law enforcement responded to Kindale Park Road in reference to a self-inflicted gunshot. Jackson had allegedly gone to an individual's residence seeking help for what she said was a self-inflicted gunshot wound to her hand. Before Jackson was transported to an area hospital she stated to police she had been hunting with a "Smoochy" in the Nesmith area when she accidently shot herself in the hand.
At that time Jackson indicated to police that her vehicle was bogged down at a club. When officers arrived at the scene they did not find Jackson's vehicle at the prescribed location, however they discovered a green Cadillac across the field. According to law enforcement, the Cadillac appeared to have struck small trees. Officers also observed blood on the vehicle. At time of press, no further information was available.
