The Chickasaw Police Department says there is a third male suspect wanted in connection with the brutal beating of 86-year-old Carrol Jordan. CPD says they have information on the man and will soon be serving warrants for his arrest.
Jordan was viciously beaten and stabbed on January 27 at his residence and was found lying in a pool of his own blood.
On Monday, February 3, Deangelo Smith, 19, was arrested and charged with first degree burglary and assault for his role in the alleged Jordan beating. CPD says Smith was picked up by the U.S. Marshals task force around 8 p.m. Monday night at the R.V. Taylor Plaza in Mobile.
His alleged accomplice, 18-year Robert Campbell was arrested earlier Monday and faces the same charges.
CPD says the knife used in Jordan’s stabbing was also recovered Monday in Prichard.
Nephew Donald Johnson says Jordan still has a long road to recovery. His uncle remains at U.S.A Medical Center in the Intensive Care Unit.
Johnson says Jordan is somewhat responsive but still needs help breathing.
“We just don’t know at this point because we’re still trying to get his oxygen level up more and his heart rate back to what would be considered regular- and it’s still not,” Johnson said.
The day before the alleged crime, Jordan’s neighbor Constance Agee says she saw Smith in the neighborhood, just yards from Jordan’s home.
“He was just standing out there acting like he was tying his shoes,” Agee said. “And I told my husband, ‘He’s acting like he’s tying his shoes. It’s taking him too long to tie his shoes.’ So, [Smith and Campbell] were targeting him then.”
Though CPD wouldn’t provide FOX10 News her name, there is also a female witness wanted for questioning in the case.
