Kingston Frazier, the 6-year-old who was the center of an Amber Alert based out of Jackson, Mississippi, has been found dead, police told FOX13.
According to the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, this all started around 1 a.m. Authorities say Kingston was sitting in a silver 2000 Toyota Camry at the Kroger on I-55 in Jackson when someone stole it.
The stolen auto was found on Gluckstadt Road at a dead end behind the ABC warehouse.
A witness contacted police and was able to provide information about the last person seen driving the silver Honda Civic, used by the suspects.
The stolen auto was found in nearby Madison County, according to WAPT in Jackson.
The Madison County Superintendent Dr. Ronnie McGehee said Wakefield is an 11th grader at Ridgeland High.
Jackson police Commander Tyree Jones tells WLBT-TV that a body found inside the stolen vehicle Thursday is believed to be that of 6-year-old Kingston Frazier. Authorities say that Kingston had been shot to death via a single bullet to the head.
Within a short time, two men in a two-door Honda Civic pulled up and the passenger jumped in Archie's auto with the child inside.
Frazier's body was taken for an autopsy at the state crime lab and the vehicle was towed away by a Highway Patrol wrecker.
Law enforcement officers said this is an on-going multijurisdictional investigation.
Police have now reportedly taken a third suspect into custody in connection with the kidnapping and murder of little Kingston Frazier.
