DJ, 31, was shot at least three times in the head near Southern States Nursery Road on February 3, 2018. The Baker County Sheriff's Office secured the scene and questioned Gardner Kent Fraser, a former BSCO employee and son of a retired BCSO deputy, before handing the investigation over to FDLE several hours later.
Over the course of 51 days since DJ's execution, the #BakerCoSO released a highly redacted, error-ridden incident report; the FDLE waited over 30 days to serve a warrant to search the Fraser's property; and State Attorney Cervone has refused to release the medical examiner's autopsy report to the family's pathologist. There has been no arrest or charges. There has been no announcement of suspects or persons-of-interest. There has been no clear evidence of justice.
