Jessica Chambers Trial: No More Gaps; Quinton Tellis Admits to being with Chambers the Evening She Died

By David in TN

Investigator testifies how phone records and interrogation began to swing case against Quinton Tellis.

Day 4 of the Jessica Chambers trial and a strong day for the prosecution.

Interviewed by police, Quinton Tellis admits to being with Chambers most of the day. He had lied when questioned a year earlier that he was with her only in the morning.

This filled in the timeline right up to Chamber’s horrific death.

David and I discussed this case at length over the phone the other night. It seems that Quinton Tellis, like so many other violent, black, career criminals, thinks that he’s a criminal mastermind. Thus, Tellis decided to use the lessons he had received in the master classes in the prison yard from other criminal masterminds during the four-year bit he did on a ten-year sentence, from which he was paroled just two months before allegedly murdering Jessica Chambers.

Apparently, black geniuses are convinced that if you set a victim’s corpse on fire, you destroy all DNA evidence.

They also fail to understand that the smartest “ploy” to take with detectives is to lawyer up. Instead, they start talking, i.e., lying, and the coppers take mental notes of each lie, and return to them. When they do, they get either new information or new lies, each of which will incriminate the “suspect” at trial.

(Even dumb coppers use a similar tactic of constantly repeating the same questions, even when talking to a crime victim from a group they hate—e.g., a normal white man—who was victimized by a member of a group they love (the usual suspects). A vic in such a situation must go on the offensive, asking, say, “Why do you keep repeating the same question? I already answered that.”)

However, the recent CNN documentary (which CNN scheduled on both its flagship network, and its HLN division,
only to cancel from broadcasting it on the former) on this case didn’t take that angle at all. It snuck in the notions that Tellis was a victim of the criminal justice system, having been a gentle soul who wouldn’t hurt a fly, until he was swept up in the system of mass incarceration, and that the real heavy in the piece was Jessica Chambers’ father, Ben Chambers Sr., because he disapproved of interracial dating.

Note too that at the time of the crime, Quinton Tellis was not an “ex-con,” but a convict. When someone is convicted of a felony, he remains a convict until he has completed serving his sentence, whether “inside” jail or prison, or “outside” on probation or parole.
