Post Story of mom and son killed on his birthday

I recently acquired this story in a trade (along with the Ellender segment) and I must say they are so disturbing!!! I can see why Lifetime never chose to show them (to my knowledge). The story of Roxanne Jeeves and her son Christopher was so heartbreaking one of the police being interviewed almost broke down. They did say a black male and hispanic woman was seen at their apartment complex the day of their murder. A gas station attendant later seen Roxanne and Christopher in their car with the black man (seen earlier at her apartment complex). They looked nervous and the attendant picked up on that but the little boy seemed okay so he did nothing. He did say Roxanne kept making eye contact with him and when he went back in the station he said something to the effect "you watch and see if something happens to her because she looked awful nervous". Within hours they were dead. They did mention that Roxanne's brother, Kurt Jeeves, had stayed with her before going into the military and he was into drug dealing. He had apparently made a lot of enemies with some deals that had gone wrong and some people think they were killed in retaliation. Kurt always denied he was responsible and ironically was killed himself 2 years later in a drug deal gone bad. Really disturbing story!!

That case is so sad. I remember the suspect sketch had his hand up to his mouth for some reason. Definitely the oddest UM sketch I've seen.

I also recall when the bodies were discovered they were still warm, and they were killed not only on the child's birthday, but on Christmas Day.

Didn't the cop, after discovering the bodies, chase the killer, who narrowly escaped? I seem to remember the killer running away from the crime scene.

Well I've only seen it once now but they were actually killed on 12-23 and it was his birthday. There were Christmas gifts in the back of the car. They didn't show a chase scene, a cop found their car in the middle of a dirt road with the driver's side door open so he looked in a nearby field and the mother and son were there. The mother had been covered with a blanket and the boy was still warm. They did show a man (matching the composite sketch) run into a gas station (not sure how far away it was from the crime scene) and demand she let him use the phone. She wouldn't let him and said to use the pay phone outside and she saw him running away. Maybe thats the running away that you remember.

Hey Todd! Well I should let Justin answer that since he is authority but here is a link he posted with some more info.

Him and I have discussed it at length since it stuck in our minds so much...very disturbing. It only aired one time on NBC and I don't think ever on Lifetime. After reading this link I'm curious as to how many of you guys remember this story as well.

I'm not Crystaldawn, but I can answer. Eric and Pam Ellender were shot to death in their home in Sulphur, Louisiana in 1991. The police arrested a coke addict named Christopher Prudhomme (sp?) and charegd him with the double homicide, which he later confessed to. Some time later, he hanged himself in his jail cell before he could be tried. Despite Prudhomme's arrest, the family of the Ellenders continued to insist that Prudhomme didn't act alone and that others were involved. There were some very disturbing allegations made including some about a coke party at the house after the Ellenders were killed, and even necrophilia.

This case has never been shown on Lifetime to my knowledge.

I'm really impressed with your memory on this case Composite Sketch! I rewatched it and they did show a toothpick or something in the mouth of the murderer's composite sketch. Also they did say when the police found the two dead the killer was seen running from the scene and at least 8 eyewitnesses reported seeing him running away or hitchhiking.

I'm baffled that the police didn't give chase, as the way UM plays it out, it appears the police witnessed the suspect fleeing.

I dont think the police actually saw him. Or if they did they didnt know it was him. The Dallas County cops would have gone after this guy had they even had an inkling that was the guy that killed Roxanne and Kristopher. It does seem though that the cops missed George Washington Hicks by mere minutes. This is one of the most sad cases I ever saw profiled on UM. You would have to be a gutless piece of garbage to not only kill a woman and her child but especially killing them so close to Christmas. Just so senseless.

I remember seeing this on one of the DVD's you sent me in the past. Is this the case where the police officer finds their vehicle and looks into the woods and finds the 2 victims.

Yes. I'm not sure if its two police officers but it seems like he finds the car abandoned with a door open and sees Roxanne and her son in a nearby field dead.

Yep..looks like the cops was allready in Christmas vacation mode..This case would have been solved that day if the police had done a proper job. Now it propably never going to be....
And agree the person who did this is nothing but GARBAGE !
Hope he died a long painful slowly death if he is dead.

On the contrary, the case has been solved. It just took more than two decades to identify the killer and bring him to justice. George Hicks was linked to the murders through DNA.

He was convicted of the crime last year, and given a sentence of life in prison. However, since he is already serving a lengthy prison term for an unrelated sexual assault, the life sentence he was given for killing Roxann and Kristopher is not expected to begin until the year 2024, at the earliest.

I agree, the killer is nothing but garbage. Since he is a child killer, let's hope that his fellow prisoners are not treating him well.
