PANOLA COUNTY, Miss. -- Investigators don't yet know where Jessica Chambers was for about one hour on the night she was murdered, District Attorney John Champion revealed Tuesday.
Champion released more details Tuesday than ever before about where Chambers was on the day someone lit her on fire, December 6th, 2014. He is hoping the additional information will bring new tips for investigators.
The timeline of that night so far goes like this:
- Until about 5 p.m., Jessica was mostly at home.
- Around 5 p.m., she got a call from a friend and went to a gas station in Courtland. WREG has shown you the surveillance video from her stop here, where she put gas in her car.
- She went to a home in Courtland shortly before 6 p.m. and left a few minutes later.
- Chambers was located in the area of Highway 6's first set of stoplights, coming into Batesville. She was there 10 to 15 minutes. The DA couldn't elaborate further about where she was specifically.
- Chambers was back in Courtland around 6:30 p.m.
- No one can place Chambers for the next hour. Investigators know she was at the murder scene on Herron Road at 7:31 p.m. Chambers' mother previously told WREG they spoke on the phone briefly around 6:45 p.m.
- The 911 call went out at 8:09 p.m.
Jessica died several hours later at a Memphis hospital on December 7th.
"We're hoping that by releasing this information, it may generate some memories of somebody that may have seen her there, or seen her within the Courtland community and 8:09:56 when the fire call came in," Champion said.
Champion said multiple agencies are continuing to work together in this investigation. They have interviewed more than 120 people and are still pursuing active leads.
Still, no one's been arrested.
The Chambers family continues to ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169 or the ATF at 1-888-283-3473.
There is a $54,000 reward being offered.
