Barber death is tragedy again for family of Kingston Frazier

The Jackson barber that was killed in his shop Friday was the great uncle of 6 year-old Kingston Frazier, who was kidnapped, shot to death, and left in his mother’s stolen car last month.

Johnny Brown was the owner of a children’s barber shop called Just for Kids on Bailey Avenue in the Capital city. He was cutting a man’s hair when he was gunned down.

While Jackson Police Chief Lee Vance did confirm that Brown is Frazier’s great uncle, he said there wasn’t evidence to support whether or not the two murders were linked.

“They may be connected, they may not,” said Chief Vance. “But right now there’s nothing to connect what happened to Johnny Brown to what happened to Kingston Frazier.”

Vance added that with this case, and with the case of Jeremy Jerome Jackson, the man found decapitated and burned over the weekend, police are asking for any community tips.

“If there’s somebody out there that knows something, that can make a connection, bring it forward,” said Vance.
