Houston’s ABC and Fox stations reported that Robert Cantrell, 49, was found dead July 23. Cantrell had been in jail in Montgomery County, just outside of Houston, since Dec. 30, 2018, on evasion and robbery charges.

Cantrell was arrested the same day Jazmine Barnes was gunned down while riding in a car with her mother and siblings. Barnes’s death gained national attention because her mother, LaPorsha Washington, alleged the shooter was white.

Washington alleged the murder was a hate crime, as did Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. A composite sketch of the alleged shooter resembled Cantrell.

King, who is closely associated with the Black Lives Matter movement, mounted a private investigation of his own into the murder, offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the ‘killer’s arrest.

Barnes’ two killers are black males. They both face capital murder charges.
