Ebony Archie, the mother of slain 6-year-old Kingston Frazier, failed to immediately inform police that her son was in a vehicle that had been stolen as she shopped at Kroger. The boy was later found dead in the recovered vehicle.
Hinds County Sheriff Victor Mason told reporters that a deputy observed Archie exit the grocery store at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday. Archie approached the deputy and said that her car was missing, and authorities began an auto theft investigation. It was not until later Archie told authorities that her son was in the car, he said.
“When we found out later that there was a child in the back, we immediately notified the highway patrol (who) put out an Amber Alert,” Mason said at an evening press conference.
Authorities have not revealed how long it took Archie to tell law enforcement that her son was in the car, however, an Amber Alert was not issued until 4:30 a.m.
After learning boy was found dead, Archie “collapsed” while exiting the district attorney’s office in downtown Jackson, reportedly needing assistance navigating a flight of stairs.
At one point, Archie cried out, “I told y’all that s—t wasn’t right, I told y’all.”
19-year-old Byron McBride, 18-year-old DeAllen Washington and 18-year-old Dwan Diondro Wakefield have all been arrested in the murder of the child.
