Boy in car thieves took later found dead

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Authorities across MS are searching for a young boy who was inside a auto when it was stolen from a grocery store parking lot in Jackson.

Kingston Frazier was last seen in a gray 2000 Toyota Camry with Mississippi license plate HYX 783, according to the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation. Family members react after learning that Kingston Frazier was found dead after being kidnapped during the theft of his mother's vehicle from a Kroger parking lot Thursday, May 18, 2017, in Jackson, Miss.

UPDATE: 05/18/2017 12:58pm As the community mourns the death of a murdered child, police continue to search for a person of interest in the case after another was taken into custody earlier today.

Two suspects taken into custody have been identified as Dwan Wakefield and DeAllen Washington, both 18, Mississippi News Now reported.

Around 10:00 am, the vehicle was found abandoned and Kingston was found shot to death in the backseat. The boy's body was later found inside of his mother's abandoned Camry, about 10 miles from the store, Jones said.

A witness contacted police and was able to provide information about the last person seen driving the silver Honda Civic, used by the suspects.

It is unclear how long it took Archie to tell law enforcement that her son was in the vehicle or how long after that the Amber Alert was issued.

"By the time he came to us, we met him down the street and we were talking to him and he said he was going to turn himself in", said the resident.

The Jackson Police Department, Hinds County Sheriff's Department and the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation had been looking for Kingston, of Jackson, until about 9:45 a.m., when the alert was canceled.

"The Jackson Public School District is deeply saddened by the tragic death of North Jackson Elementary scholar, Kingston Frazier", JPS spokesman Sherwin Johnson said in a statement.

According to the Hinds County Sheriff's Department, the child's mother, Ebony Archie, left her Camry running with Kingston inside.

"When a child is taken, we pull all resources available to us. Leave him somewhere, find a way to get him to a store, to a gas station, to a restaurant, Wal-Mart, anywhere people are and just drop him off".

The Madison County Superintendent Dr. Ronnie McGehee said Wakefield is an 11th grader at Ridgeland High.

Remembering the boy, David Archie said, "Kingston was all outgoing".
