DAILYKENN.com -- A passing motorist found Jessica Sanders barely alive along a road near Courtland, Miss. on Dec. 6, 2014.
The young white college girl had been burned alive. She died shortly thereafter.
News sources say a black male, Quinton Tellis, will be identified as the suspect in Sanders' murder.
The national mainstream media have largely ignored the murder; something they would not have done had the races been reversed.
Sources confirm a man named Quinton Tellis will be publicly identified as a suspect in the murder of Jessica Chambers during Wednesday's press conference.Please report typos...
District Attorney John Champion and other Panola County investigators will hold a press conference Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. They said the press conference is related to the Jessica Chambers case, but did not say specifically what they plan to release at the press conference.
Sources tell WMC Action News 5 the press conference will announce that a grand jury indicted Tellis in Chambers' murder.
Tellis is in custody in Louisiana for other crimes. In November, he was identified as a suspect in the murder of a University of Louisiana-Monroe student. During that investigation, he was identified as possibly being connected to a murder in Mississippi.
Wednesday's press conference will start at 10:30 a.m. at the Panola County Sheriff's Department. WMC Action News 5 will be there to carry the announcement live on air and on WMCActionNews5.com.
Chambers was burned alive along a rural road in Courtland, Mississippi on December 6, 2014. Surveillance cameras at a nearby gas station recorded Chambers moments before her death.
In December, Panola County Sheriff Dennis Darby said his department had some 'promising' leads in the case.
