Details at time of disappearance: Jones was last seen in Richland County, South Carolina on September 19, 1997. He traveled with his brother from his home in Greensboro, North Carolina to Richland to attend the baptism of a friend's child. Jones was driving a 1994 Lexus. He and his brother checked into the Quality Inn in the 1500 block of Horseshoe Drive Jones disappeared a short time afterwards and has never been heard from again.
The Lexus was located three days later. A West Columbia, South Carolina man wrecked it on Christian Street, then fled from the scene of the accident. When authorities examined the car, they found a large amount of blood inside it they stated there was enough blood to indicate death had occurred.
In 2009, police reopened the case and took DNA from Jones's son to test it against the blood in the car. Bryen Brice was arrested and charged with Jones's murder in February 2010. He ultimately pleaded guilty.
Jones had a troubled past and was involved in drugs, and investigators believe he was killed during a botched drug deal. Another suspect, Errol West, is wanted on charges related to the case, but he remains a fugitive.
Jones's body has not been recovered, but foul play is suspected in his case due to the circumstances involved.
