so i know what you’re thinking:
“WHO IS THIS PIECE OF FINE MEAT?”
well don’t get too excited.
he is dead.
he is also an alleged jackal according to the news.
his name is jermaine roby and he was allegedly involved in a murder-suicide.
this one is a little heavy.
a f-bi sent me the story via gwinnett daily post…
The man who possibly pulled the trigger in a murder-suicide at his Norcross home Friday may be connected to an Atlanta homicide hours before, according to Atlanta police.
Josephine Roby-Skinner, 55, her daughter Jasmyn Skinner, 10, and son Jermaine Roby, 26, were found fatally shot in different rooms in the house, authorities said Monday.
Vernon Skinner returned to his home and saw the bodies of his wife, son and daughter at about 4 p.m., police spokesman Cpl. Deon Washington said.
Skinner reportedly left for work at about 3:45 but turned around when Roby called him and said Jasmyn was sick.
Skinner was not injured but noticed shell casings were all over the home, according to reports.
Investigators are trying to figure out the events that led up to the incident at the home on the 700 block of Pebble Creek Drive. They believe the son may have been the shooter who later turned the gun on himself.
Officials were on the scene not far from Jimmy Carter Boulevard well into the night.
Police aren’t aware of any domestic issues at the home, Washington said.
“This by all accounts is our first time coming for something of this magnitude,” he said.
The Atlanta Police Department said Roby may be connected in the shooting death of Quincy King, 40, shortly before the triple homicide was reported. King’s body was found at Highland Ridge apartments on Northside Circle near Northside Drive, according to Atlanta police.
The Atlanta police department is working with Gwinnett police to compare bullets from the incidents.
Local police are still focused on finding answers surrounding the Norcross murder, Washington said.
“More importantly, we are investigating why a tragedy like this would happen one week before Thanksgiving,” he said.
“By answering those difficult questions, our hope is that the impacted families will be able to grieve and begin healing.”
Gwinnett PD’s Critical Incident Stress Management team called to the scene to speak with the victims’ loved ones and the responding officers. The agency contacted local clergy members to meet with family and friends.
so he came home,
allegedly murdered his family,
and allegedly murdered this other person?
was he about to be outed?
that was my first thought.
he was fresh on the gay/party scene and was pretty popular:
he is still getting condolences from those who knew/partied him:
Roby was known for his big smile and friendly demeanor in gay Atlanta nightlife circles. Friends paid tribute to him in Facebook postings all weekend.
Isaac Escalante, a popular DJ from Mexico, headlined Xion in Atlanta on Saturday and commemorated Roby ahead of his appearance. Via Facebook:
“I hope to see everyone out in Atlanta tonight as we celebrate Keith Allen Young’s birthday and remember our amazing friend JJ Roby. Times like these can be very tough, but it’s important for us to come together, stay positive, and remember the joy that he brought to all of us. Tonight I’ve got all the tracks that JJ loved ready to play. We dance for you tonight baby.”
Matt Colunga-Smith, a former general manager of Swinging Richards who now lives in Denver, also paid tribute to his friend. Via Facebook:
“To my amazing friend. You will truly be missed. JJ Roby you were the best, lots of great memories together, that I will cherish the rest of my life!!”
Atlanta DJ Seth Aaron Breezy also commemorated Roby. Via Facebook:
“The passing of a friend who is so close to you is numbing beyond what words and tears can express. I love you forever JJ Roby.”
DJ Paulo offered this tribute on Saturday:
“Sleep in heavenly peace.”
it seems he was a hit with the snow foxes and wolves.
his facebook tells that story.
i hope this senseless act doesn’t go unsolved.
i’m sure if he did this,
he left a trail as to the motive.
lets crack open those texts and emails!
may all the victims rest in peace.
lowkey: facebook does “remembering” to those who pass away?
are we sure the father was where he said he was?
i find this all very strange.
