Friends of Felicia Jones asked that we post her case in hopes that someone will finally come forward with information leading to the arrest of those person/s responsible.
Felicia Jones, was only 20 years old and didn’t have a known address, when she was found shot to death in the early morning of Thanksgiving-Nov. 28, 1991. She was discovered lying on the kitchen floor of a State Street apartment with a single gunshot wound to the chest. No suspects have ever been arrested in the case.
At around 2:15 a.m., that morning a resident of the apartment found the 20-year-old lying on the floor.
He carried her to a bedroom and called for help, initially thinking she had passed out from drinking.
Rescue workers who tried to revive Felicia discovered a small puncture wound to her chest. The autopsy revealed she had been shot. She died from a gunshot wound that pierced the main artery to her lungs, causing massive internal bleeding, according to police.
Three men were in the second-story apartment at 1506 State St. where Jones’ body was found, all three had been reportedly drinking heavily, two were still asleep when her body was discovered by the third (they have all been cleared and are not considered suspects in her murder).
Investigators believed Felicia was shot in the apartment, but no one heard the gunfire and a gun was never found.
