Marshall County searching for two murder suspects

Marshall County looking for two suspects in connection to a murder

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Last month, Jordan Stewart was found dead inside a car on a rural road outside of Byhalia with a gunshot to his head.

The 25-year-old’s mother Brenda Malone was pleading for anyone with evidence to come forward after her son was killed on June 28.

Marshall County investigators have two unnamed suspects in custody, a man now at 201 Poplar and a woman being held in the Marshall County Jail, both suspected of being involved in the shooting of Stewart.

Monday, Investigators released photos of two suspects not in custody, Jameka Thomas who has a Memphis address and Wanzie Brown who has a Southaven address.

Investigators say both will be charged with capital murder and are considered armed and dangerous. Marshall County investigators said U.S. Marshals are looking for them.

Brown and Thomas are believed to be in Thomas’ White 4-door Hyundai with a Tennessee license plate: OR71D5. Investigators say robbery is a possible motive for the murder. There is a substantial reward.

Friends say Jordan Stewart was a local rapper and provided for his family. His mother is devastated by her loss.

“He was just an awesome, awesome young man," Malone said. "He basically was very quiet. He didn’t bother anybody. He was a loving young man.”
