UPDATE: Missing Auburn teen found dead; two charged with his kidnapping



By Alex Jones | September 11, 2020 at 1:24 PM CDT - Updated September 11 at 8:02 PM

AUBURN, Ala. (WTVM) - A body found in Lee County yesterday has been confirmed to be that of 18-year-old Thomas A. Green, who was reported missing earlier this week.

Green was last seen by a friend on September 5. Auburn police released video surveillance that shows Green attempting to enter a business and leaving when he realized the business was closed.

Two men have been arrested and charged with Green’s kidnapping.

Auburn police, along with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force, arrested 41-year-old Taharra Jaquay Brunson and 35-year-old Marcus Okeef Wigley, both of whom are from Auburn.

Lee County Coroner Bill Harris says that preliminary post-mortem results show that Green suffered fatal injuries, but further information on those injuries are not being released. Harris also says his body was identified using dental records.

An investigation determined that Brunson and Wigley played a role in taking Green against his will. Both are being held in the Lee County Jail on a $50,0000 bond.

Investigators are expecting additional charges in the future for both Brunson and Wigley.

Not to mention when desegregation started, it put a lot of black owned businesses out of business. People seem to forget that when you have one hand reaching out to help you, watch where the other hand is going!!!!

LBJ was the most evil cocksucker since FDR. He wrecked the country and destroyed any hopes blacks had at equality. But I'll give him credit: He was smart enough to realize the Democrats couldn't literally own black people any more, so he figured out a plan to own them by making them dependent on The Government. And the kicker is, a lot of blacks are *grateful* for being brought back onto the plantation.

Cheer Star Jerry Harris Arrested on Federal Child Pornography Charge


Jerry Harris, the star of the Netflix docuseries Cheer, has been arrested on a federal charge for allegedly producing child pornography.

A statement from federal officials confirms that Harris, 21, was formally charged in Chicago on Thursday, and alleges the Naperville man was arrested today "for allegedly enticing an underage boy to produce sexually explicit videos and photos of himself."

Harris, the statement alleges, "contacted the underage boy on a social media application and repeatedly enticed him to produce sexually explicit videos and photographs of himself and send them to Harris, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago. The minor victim informed Harris during their initial online encounter that he was 13 years old."

The criminal complaint against Harris alleges the boy told his mother that in a bathroom at a cheerleading competition, Harris solicited oral sex from him.

The complaint also accuses Harris of admitting to FBI agents of soliciting and receiving child pornography on Snapchat from “at least between 10 to 15 other individuals he knew were minors.”

The FBI conducted a raid on Harris' home earlier this week.

Harris will appear before a judge at 2:00 p.m. local time.

Production of child pornography is punishable by a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison and a maximum of 30 years.

The news comes just days after two underage twin brothers filed a lawsuit against Harris for allegedly sexually abusing them and demanding nude photographs from them. Manly, Stewart & Finaldi, the firm representing the twins in a civil suit, confirmed in a statement that the alleged victim in the criminal accusation is one of the twins.

The suit, filed Monday in Texas and obtained by PEOPLE, states the plaintiffs are both competitive cheerleaders who first met Harris in 2018, when they were 13.

The suit alleges he leveraged his prominence in the cheerleading community to groom the two for abuse.

The suit alleges he leveraged his prominence in the cheerleading community to groom the two for abuse.

"Plaintiffs were 'star struck,' as Harris was already a known All-Star Cheer personality, icon and coach within the state and nationally," the suit states.

A spokesperson for Harris told PEOPLE on Monday, "We categorically dispute the claims made against Jerry Harris, which are alleged to have occurred when he was a teenager. We are confident that when the investigation is completed the true facts will be revealed."

The suit accuses Harris of befriending the boys via social media before demanding nude photographs from them soon after. It further alleges he would repeatedly ask them about their sexual experiences, saying that he "exploited the fact that Plaintiffs were openly gay."

A Netflix spokesperson told PEOPLE on Thursday, "Like everyone we are shocked by this news. Any abuse of minors is a terrible crime and we respect the legal process."

A statement from Sarah Klein, the plaintiffs' civil attorney, asserts: "We are grateful that the U.S. Attorney and the FBI have taken swift action to protect children by investigating, arresting, and charging Jerry Harris. This was made possible because our clients’ mother had the courage to report Harris to the FBI as well as the Fort Worth Police Department and provided evidentiary proof of the manipulation, sexual harassment, abuse, and exploitation that her sons had suffered."

Harris rose to fame on Cheer, a docuseries that follows Texas' Navarro College competitive cheerleading team. Harris, a star on the team, was known for his positive demeanor and the way he inspired teammates.
