Evidence of James Brown Murder Allegation Mysteriously Vanishes

Something strange,” CNN reports, “happened to the items in the evidence bags at the prosecutor’s office. They disappeared.” Jacque Hollander “said she could prove the Godfather of Soul was murdered at an Atlanta hospital in 2006.” On May 8, the District Attorney admitted there has been “neglect” on the James Brown death case and it’s serious. They hope the judge will agree that it’s “excusable.” This time, that might not happen.

Missing evidence of murder

There is missing evidence of a murder and the prosecutor is either grossly incompetent or covering something up, maybe both. Singer James Brown was a controversial figure throughout his life. It’s not surprising that his death continues to be just as controversial. An internal video recently obtained by CNN with a FOIA request shows a scene from three years ago at the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, in Georgia.

This right here is the shoe,” Assistant District Attorney Michael Sprinkel can be heard saying during the “inventory session.” This “is the untested shoe that was believed to be worn in the hospital room on the night of James Brown’s death.

The shoe, along with a case full of other evidence items, were provided by Jacque Hollander, who “said she could prove the Godfather of Soul was murdered at an Atlanta hospital in 2006.” She’s not the only one who believe that.

More than a dozen people who knew Brown have called for an autopsy or a criminal investigation.” Brown’s manager, Frank Copsidas is one of them.

He was murdered,” Copsidas insisted during a 2022 interview. “That’s my interpretation, plain and simple. Somebody wanted him dead.” Not him. After Hollander brought her evidence in to the DA in 2020, “prosecutors agreed to check out her story.

It was quietly closed in 2021, “after a deputy district attorney determined there was ‘an insufficient basis for the initiation of a Grand Jury investigation.” They closed the file and that was the end of it. Or, so they thought.

Where did it go

Eventually, Hollander got around to asking for her items back. That’s when she learned “something strange happened to the items in the evidence bags at the prosecutor’s office. They disappeared.” District Attorney Fani Willis refuses to publicly confirm that it’s gone.

The file is under “active consideration,” she declares. When they say a file’s under consideration, that means they lost it. “Active” consideration means they’re looking for it.

Back in January, Hollander sued Willis in Fulton County Superior Court. The lawsuit demanded “numerous documents related to the James Brown inquiry,” as well as “any and all property and evidence submitted to, received by, maintained or possessed by the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office in relation to said investigation.

They didn’t fight over it like the FBI does. They went limp. The DA’s office “has been oddly silent about the missing items, and that silence continued after the suit was filed.” They took it to the extreme.

A process server reported serving the DA’s justice liaison, William McCombs, with a summons and complaint on January 17. Civil procedure requires a response within 30 days.” They didn’t file one. Automatic win for the other side in Lawyerville. “On April 3, Hollander’s attorneys filed a motion for default judgment.” Finally, the DA woke up and smelled the career damage. “On May 8, the DA responded. Imploring Judge Paige Reese Whitaker not to render a default judgment for Hollander.” The reason? “Excusable neglect.

Deputy District Attorney Dexter Bond swore up and down in an affidavit that after McCombs was served, “instead of hand delivering the summons and complaint to the appropriate team member, it was emailed. Consequently, the email was missed and an answer was not filed timely.” The judge isn’t likely to believe that. The affidavit didn’t mention the missing evidence, which will be the next thing to come up in court.
