Homicide Victim JDawg Ferguson Was Involved In Bad Lifestyle Choices, Including Consumption Of "Purple Drank"

JNS blog has linked the name of a recent victim of Northside homicide, Ju-Chaun Ferguson, to the Facebook profile of a guy who called himself "Jdawg Ferguson." Click here for previous article.

If Jdawg isn't dead, well, then a lot of his friends are mistakenly leaving tributes on his Facebook photos...

Tammy Jodi James, who hails from Kankakee, Illinois and describes herself as "Married Tuh A Boss" left the following tribute:

"He sent this picture to my phone. R.I.P. (Heart symbol)

In response, Kumup Teamcash of Minneapolis wrote, "R.I.P. to a real nigga."

The photo on which these comments were posted is below.


Note the red Converse sneakers. These appear to have been something of a trademark for JDawg.

Where did JDawg grow up? How did he end up dead in Minneapolis? It's not clear from his Facebook page. JDawg was in Tennessee not so long ago. He uploaded a number of photos from his phone and Facebook automatically noted the locations, including Memphis, Knoxville and Sevierville.

Here are some of the photos he uploaded from Tennessee.




At some point, Jdawg took a journey. He seemed to be headed toward Minneapolis. Two photos were taken at a bus station in Milwaukee.


He posted a total of six photos after the bus station photos were posted. One might assume these photos were taken in the Twin Cities, though the muted colors in one of the photos makes me think it could have been a photo hardcopy that was scanned. Also, I can't find any location clues that tell me exactly where the photos were taken.

Judge for yourself, JNS blog readers. Here are the "photos posted after the Milwaukee bus station photos." (The image of Jdawg sitting on the stairs, posted above, was another one of those images)

There is a series of pictures which show Jdawg preparing and consuming something called Purple Drank. Some months ago, this blog wrote a story where Purple Drank figured prominently in a South Minneapolis homicide, click here.

Note, in photos below, two of the elements of Purple Drank: Sprite and Jolly Ranchers. I don't need to guess whether Jdawg was consuming Purple Drank because, in one of the photos, he labels it as "Drank," which is the common term for a mixture of Sprite, Jolly Ranchers candy, and the drugs codeine and promethazine.


Jdawg took photos of wads of cash, which is common among young and urban men who are either in the drug game or would like everybody to THINK they are. Here is one of those photos.

Gee, not even enough to fix a car transmission. I'm just saying.

What was Jdawg doing in Minneapolis and why did somebody feel the need to kill him? I could keep on posting photos of his bad lifestyle choices and perhaps I will in the near future. God knows there are enough images for a Part Two.

For the moment, however, I will just note this.

The crime remains unsolved. His murderer is presumably still at large.

Maybe someone killed him for his pile of cash.

Maybe he stole the pile of cash and that someone he stole it from shot him and the "Purple Drank" seeped out of his holy body and stained the carpet so they can forget about Khan giving the damage deposit back.
Paul Harvey...you bastard.

Word from a high-ranking source is that Jdawg was extensively involved in gang activity involving "The Ferguson Gang."

Johnny Northside! said...

Yes, when the identities are learned of the individuals who killed him, yes, I fully expect to be writing about them, as well. Not only am I not taking sides in your gang war, but none of the decent people in our neighborhood (with the exception of a few police who specialize in this kind of thing) even know what the sides are and who is on which side.

to 8:39- your KING J-Dawg is dead so get over it. I'll Have a 40 and go piss on his memorial in your honor. I comically doubt that any gang war will break out because of his enlisting in the Dead Poets Society.
You will have to get in line, sir, and take a number to see if you are the next to bang his bitch and if the line isn't too long you have a chance to be her next baby's daddy. Blue light special in aisle 13.....hurry now.

I am a very educated and highly reputable individual and I will let you know u sound like an ignorant racist or bigot. I am all for people having their opinions but for personal slander when a family is grieving over a family member with no answers and you’re out here posting fake shit makes no sense. You don’t know that man or what he was going through or what he was doing to change his life. People make mistakes in life and people grow up in different environments and different ways and I would advise you that it would probably be smart in the future to keep your mouth shut before someone who is really bad retaliates against you because of your ignorance. I would hate to see that happen to you but you need to do research and evaluate what you say before it comes back to haunt you one day. If you have such a problem with where u live and what’s going on then move and come back to the community to help it grow because u are no better than the drug dealers and killers because all you blog seems to be doing is polluting the internet with false information and just opinions about situations you know nothing about. I know that you would go into the streets saying what you are saying about the young man or to his family because you know you might now walk away from that battle.

Highly educated and reputable?

How shall I phrase this?

No "u" are not.

3:52 is an asshole who merely has the ability to spell correctly. Highly reputable? Your whole comment is highly REPUKEABLE.
John has a lot of you pissed off because he disrupts your TERRORIST ACTIVITY and I hope you assholes all die a slow death at each others hands or at the business end of my mini-cannon. Fuck all of you sissy bitches.

This is unbelievably unacceptable and I am not even from minneapolis, or black, so don't try to make some racist insinuation that I am inferior to you due to being a black male, which seems to be a trend in your article/comments. Grammar/syntax isn't a basis to call someone stupid and discredit their opinion. It's called respect for the dead you douchebag, how do you think his mother would feel if she saw what you are writing, johnny northside? Not only is it pulp writing with no base and is mere speculation, you are insulting an individual you never met in your life. I don't know how old you are, but any age is too old to be getting your rocks off by insulting a DECEASED MAN. Grow up.

Who did it? And if you don't know who, specifically, what group, gang, set, clique, etc? WHO DID IT?

Snfh. As a close friend of his this hole this is so unlivable. You look at somebody Facebook.and think you kno there life. Jdawg made music he was not.some hood ass thug that robber ppl n shit like that he was a good man and a better father. And for u to post something on the internet that his kids can some day see portraying him as some thug drug deal gang member its so sad and miserable of you. Why don't you write about something you kno about.

Johnny Northside! said...

Riiiight. (Sarcasm font) Because it would be so CRAZY to think I could look at a person's Facebook page and think I could learn something about him, like his enthusiasm for the illegal concoction "Purple Drank" and his thuggy poses with cash.

U are stupid all that stuff is false so go try to make up more false statements bye

They are doing a 48 hours special on him. It would be great if they could actually help catch the killer. There are a lot of unsolved murders in this city. They need to catch the killer of the five year old too. Hard to imagine how many murders are running around loose.

Blaire Armstrong said...

This is actually really disturbing. My cousin is DEAD. Yes. For you guys to be talking about him in a such a manor is disrespectful and ignorant. You didn't know him. He was AMAZING father, brother, son, cousin, you name it. He didn't have "bad lifestyle choices," you should really get your facts check out. He wasn't involved in no "GANG." He may have been associated with or came in contact with people who may have been but he wasn't. You guys call yourselves adults but all I see is a bunch of immature fucks who have nothing better to do than sit around and write about a deceased young man. So please do me a favor, delete and do something better with your life because this is extremely pathetic and rude.

Johnny Northside! said...

You seriously think I'm going to delete any of this? Keep dreaming.

By the way, learn the difference between "manner" and "manor."

Blaire Armstrong said...

Ooo, auto correct got me there! Learn the difference between BlOGGING about someone rather than BASHING someone. You're just really pathetic and I hope you find something better to do with your life. Adios, xo.
