Photo from FB Profile Of "Jaylin Dubose (Squad Up)" used under First Amendment Fair Comment and Criticism
Jaylin Deshawn Dubose, DOB 4/21/1994, is currently wanted by Minneapolis police as a suspect in the murder of Parrish Gray.
Simultaneously, there is a guy named Jaylin Dubuse who appears to be the same age, who resides in North Minneapolis and played high school basketball, (played well but committed a lot of fouls) and who hasn't posted to his Facebook in the last couple days. "Jaylin Dubose" isn't one of those names like William Brown. And then you have the same age. And then you have the "committed a lot of fouls." And then I have some Facebook pictures of him looking quite athletic and full of potential, but also getting down and acting all gangster.
Same guy? I believe so.
Have I ruled out the possibility of an identically named cousin born at nearly the same time (that's why they picked the identical names) and living in the same neighborhood, who has the same short temper that may run in the family, and that's why he commits fouls in basketball?
Not really. I rate the odds at 99 and 46/100ths.
Good enough for the blogosphere. Here are more photos...
This photo was labeled "Official." Not sure what that means, but note Dubose and the other guy in the picture (same as pictured above, name not published by this blog) is making a gang sign.
Jaylin is in the foreground. The gun in the back, wearing "TC" apparel, is making some kind of sign with his hand.
Anybody care to take a guess?
I said "take a guess," not "all in unison!"
Yes, of course, CHICAGO.
Dubose has more than 1,000 friends on Facebook, so it's hard to tell how deep any of the connections are. But already I'm finding much that is revealing and will write a subsequent post. For example, Dubose is FB friends with Shaunta Gomez, of the tragic Gomez family extensively reported about here on this blog.
