FATHER TURNS TEENAGE SON IN TO POLICE FOR MURDER

April 28 2012

– A boy of 17 with a tattoo on his forehead was arrested on Tuesday for the drug-fuelled slaying of a 22-year-old in March after his father turned him in.

And the distinctive tattoo of a gun between his eyebrows could pose a challenge for his defence lawyers.

Jimmy Clemons Jr. is charged with first-degree murder after allegedly targeting Valley Alexandre after leaving a house party in the Lake Worth area of Palm Beach.

Witnesses told police Clemons wanted to rob his victim of a stash of drugs he was carrying, according to the Palm Beach Post.

The newspaper reported that Alexandre drove to the 600 block of Ridge Road where he met with two men who climbed into the back of his car.

One man grabbed Alexandre in a headlock and pointed a gun to his head.

A passenger in the car who said he jumped out before hearing gunshots identified Clemons as the person who entered the car and assaulted Alexandre with the gun.

Less than 24 hours after the fatal attack Clemons’ mother and aunt were shot dead in the Clemons’ living room in Boynton Beach, where they were swaping beauty tips.

Detectives told the paper they believed Clemons had been the intended target and that the sisters, Janice Rahming, 54, and Daphne Clemons, 41, had got in the way.

In the days following the killings Clemons’ father, Jimmy Clemons Sr., confronted his son, who was no longer living with him after discovering that his 9mm Ruger was missing from the drawer where he kept it.

Clemons allegedly admitted to having taken the gun for ‘protection’ and slipped it back into the drawer when his father went to tell police.

‘That’s what you gotta do,’ Clemons Sr. told the Post. ‘He’s a juvenile. I didn’t have a choice.’

Clemons faces charges of burglary, grand theft of a firearm and possession of a firearm by a minor.

He was released on $5,000 bail and ordered to have no contact with any weapons.

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
