    AutoZone Stabbing Suspect Allegedly Beat Cellmate to Death

    Jayvon Hatchett the suspect arrested for allegedly perpetrating the AutoZone stabbing which occurred August 25, was charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon.

    In court testimony, police said Hatchett explained he “felt the need to find a white male to kill.”

    Now, police are investigating the death of Hatchett’s cellmate, Eddie Nelson, who was allegedly beaten to death by Hatchett.

    According to Georgia local news, “Nelson was picked up for a probation violation on September 1st and then housed with the hate crime suspect.”

    New details are emerging about what happened inside the Muscogee County Jail early Saturday morning when Eddie Nelson was allegedly beaten to death by his cellmate Jayvon Hatchett.  Nelson was picked up for a probation violation on September 1st and then housed with the hate crime suspect.

    “I have a question for the Sheriff. Why? Why did you put my son and that other man in there together? Why? Can you answer me that? I lost a son because of ya’lls negligence,” Nelson’s grieving mother told First News exclusively.

    Nelson’s family is demanding answers about why her son was placed inside the same jail cell as Jayvon Hatchett, the suspect accused of stabbing a white Auto Zone worker after watching police shootings on Facebook. According to court testimony, Hatchett wanted to kill white people after watching those videos of police brutality and was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation. “If this mentally imbalanced individual had been a member of the Ku Klux Klan, they would not have put him in a cell with a black person. If he was a rapist, they wouldn’t have put him in a cell with a woman. If he had bombed a synagogue they wouldn’t have put him in a cell with a Jewish person. If he had been that white kid up in Wisconsin that shot those demonstrators they would not have put him in a cell with demonstrators. I mean this is either sheer stupidity or meanness that’s the only way I can explain it,” Attorney Craig Jones said after reviewing details about the incident.

    The gory scene inside the cell was described as a bloody mess where Nelson was beaten in the head, face, neck and forearms allegedly by Hatchett.  The nurse on duty refused to go inside the cell and the guard performed CPR according to a source with first hand knowledge of the incident. The guard was alerted to the beating by another inmate inside the mental health ward. “How long does it take to beat somebody up to beat somebody to death with your bare hands and not have anybody notice,” Jones asked.  Nelson’s mother pleading for justice told First News “something’s got to stop. This has to stop.”

    Eddie Nelson’s probation violation was for failure to register as a sex offender. His family told us the classification was from a 20 year old case involving a “Romeo- Juliet” type relationship. “He was a good boy, a good young man. He would give you the shirt off his back. All kids love him. He loved kids. He was a fine young man, a fine young man, a good son and he shouldn’t have died this way,” his mom told us.

    Sorry, but did someone miss the most important thing here?

    According to Georgia local news, “Nelson was picked up for a probation violation on September 1st and then housed with the hate crime suspect.”

    Well, everyone would follow the law, there would be no problems. Eh?

    Bad choices all over the place, but Nelson violated his probation and put himself at risk. You’re a fool to think the system is going to protect you? Look at how many riot, harassment, terrorist, arson, etc violations are occurring every night without charges. The system is not protecting anyone.

      Penalty for parole violation is death?
      No chance the parole violation was bogus?

        Parole Violation was bogus? Cool, you sure know how to make up stuff. Where is that in the article? Do you realize how dumb that statement is. I will change my position when you prove that is the case.

        Penalty for parole violation is death? Duh, missed the point totally. You get sent to jail (even local community lock up) you are at risk. I think we obviously agree that it was a dumb move to put him in the cell with a wanta be killer. Was it intentional? Who knows, but I have not seen anything to prove that. End result, Nelson appears to have screwed up based on reported information and it cost him his life.

        It is against law to hit someone with your car, but if you stand in the middle of a cross walk when a car is coming at you at a high rate of speed and you get hit and killed, yes it is the drivers fault, but you are still dead. Common sense comes in to play here. We need more of it, or self correcting behavior will continue to happen.

    Did Kamala Harris call him a hero yet?

    “Jayvon”…

    Wood chipper.
