ATLANTA — After Clark Atlanta student Alexis Crawford was reported missing, thousands took to social media to share her photo in hopes of finding her. Among those who posted her photo was the woman charged in her death, Jordyn Jones, according to a family spokesperson.
Crawford, 21, was reported missing by her mother on November 1.
According to arrest warrants, in the early morning hours of October 31, Jones got into a "physical altercation" with Crawford. The warrants state that Brantley admitted to getting involved and choking Crawford to death. Jones' arrest warrant states she smothered Crawford with a plastic bag.
Brantley later placed Crawford's body in a plastic bin and took her body to Exchange Park in Decatur, according to the arrest warrant.
Before Crawford's body was found, Jones was active on social media, according to the Rev. Markel Hutchins, who has acted as the Crawford family's spokesperson.
Jones shared Crawford's missing person report on Instagram, according to Hutchins, and allegedly posted, "This is obviously a difficult time for me and I just feel helpless...My heart is really hurting [right now]".
"[T]he fact that y'all are telling everybody to blow my DMs up is beyond childish...how bout y'all put that same energy y'all putting in to harass me into finding my friend."
Jones' Instagram has since been made private, and Instagram stories disappear after 24 hours, so 11Alive could not independently verify Hutchins' claims.
Police have not announced a motive in Crawford's death, but did note that days before her murder, the 21-year-old Clark Atlanta student had filed a police report alleging that Brantley had sexually assaulted her. Jones was listed as a witness in that report.
Jones is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 25 and Brantley on Nov. 22.
Crawford's funeral is scheduled for Saturday at Cornerstone Church Athens.
