Dallas police name three suspects in mysterious murder of Joshua Brown

DALLAS – The Dallas Police Department named three suspects in the mysterious murder of Joshua Brown, the 28-year-old neighbor of Botham Jean and witness for the prosecution against ex-Dallas cop Amber Guyger. Brown was gunned down just days after Guyger was convicted and sentenced to 10 years in prison.

The timing was suspicious and led many to allege, without evidence, that this was a revenge killing. Complicating matters was the fact that Brown was going to be called as a witness against the City of Dallas in a civil suit. The NAACP even demanded an independent federal investigation of Brown’s murder.

Nevertheless, amid the angry noise and bitterness, Dallas authorities said that Brown’s murder was connected to a drug (marijuana) deal gone horribly awry. One suspect was wounded and taken to a hospital, where he is now in police custody. The two remaining suspects remain at large.

The men accused of murder and on the run have been identified by authorities as Thaddeous Charles Green, 22, and Michael Diaz Mitchell, 32, reported Law and Crime.

Green was the alleged gunman. Authorities claim Green, Mitchell, and Jacquerious Mitchell, 20, traveled from Louisiana to buy marijuana from Brown. Jacquerious Mitchell is in custody, while the other two suspects are trying to evade police.

DPD Assistant Chief Avery Moore said Brown’s mysterious murder was entirely unrelated to the Guyger trial and that community leaders who suggested police involvement in the killing acted irresponsibly, spread a falsehood and undermined the integrity of the City of Dallas and the Dallas Police Department.

Police repeated this message on Twitter.

They also provided information about a tip line.

Dallas Police Department is seeking information in order to capture the wanted suspects. Tipsters are encouraged to call (214) 373-3690.
