Monsters Among Us: Jereme Lamond Jones charged with the murder of Randy Johnson in the Biloxi Golden Nugget casino

From Biloxi PD

On Friday, September 18, 2021, at approximately 12:34 a.m., the Biloxi Police Department received multiple 911 calls about a male shooting a pistol inside the Golden Nugget Casino, located at 151 Beach Boulevard, Biloxi, Mississippi. Additional 911 calls indicated one male was shot and the suspect fled the scene on foot.

Officers from Biloxi Police Department, and surrounding jurisdictions, responded to the area and detained a suspect, who was armed with a pistol, in the area of the Biloxi Bay Bridge. Additional Officers cleared the scene and located a male who appeared to be suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Emergency first aid was provided to the victim, who was declared deceased, on scene, at 12:56 a.m.

The suspect is identified as 30-year-old Jereme Lamond Jones of Mobile, Alabama, and the victim was a 41-year-old black male of Gulfport, Mississippi. The initial investigation indicated Jones and the Victim were involved in a physical altercation outside the casino. The Victim ran into the casino, followed by Jones, where Jones allegedly fired multiple close-range shots at the Victim on the gaming floor. No other citizens were injured during the altercation and it is currently unknown if Jones and the Victim knew each other, or what led up to the physical altercation. Jones was ultimately charged with 1st Degree Murder and transported to the Harrison County Adult Detention Center with a $1,000,000 bond imposed by Harrison County Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain.

From Reynolds appeal: What is not in dispute is that the decomposing body of the victim Sophia Arnold was found on April 12 2007 behind the Mississippi River levee in West Baton Rouge Parish However the factual version put forth by defendant is that on April 10 2007 at approximately 100 pm defendant picked up the victim at the
Southern University campus Defendant drove Ms Arnold to a residence in the vicinity of Greenwell Springs Road and Joor Road where she danced for a group of men for approximately 45 minutes Defendant then took Ms Arnold to his residence in the Sherwood Forest area of East Baton Rouge Parish

After they arrived at defendant’s residence defendant and Ms Arnold became involved in a physical altercation after an argument over payment for her dancing According to defendant he grabbed Ms Arnold by the neck and held her for five to ten minutes after which time her body became limp Defendant then placed Ms Arnold’s body in the back of his truck and drove to a location in Port Allen where he concealed the body behind the levee The ensuing investigation pointed to defendant and he was
eventually charged with second degree murder in West Baton Rouge Parish
