Fifth Suspect Charged in Caraway Death

Meridian police late Tuesday announced that a fifth young man had been arrested in connection with the death of a homeless man in July.

Police say 16-year-old Eric Mosley was one of the people involved in the death of David Caraway. He was taken into custody late Monday.

Caraway was found dead in an alley near the Hope Village Thrift Store on 8th Street.

Mosley is being held on $400,000 bond. Police say they believe this fifth arrest will be the last one in the case.

Four others were charged earlier with armed robbery and manslaughter:
Antshawn Davis, 17; D'Anthony Davis, 19; Antonio Chapman, 18; and Marcus Anderson, 20.

Police said a preliminary autopsy report indicated the 52-year-old Caraway died of blunt force trauma to his internal organs, which investigators believe was caused by a physical assault.

    TO JOHN, THE LANGUAGE YOU SEE ON HERE IS THE TEENS AND IF YOU CAN NOT UNDERSTAND JUST THAT OR TRY TO GET INSIDE THERE HEADS IS THE VERY THING THAT MERIDIAN IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO SUFFER FROM. TAKE TIME OUT TO UNDER STAND THIER LANGUAGE AND NOT PUT IT DOWN. WHEATHER YOUR BLACK OR WHITE ADULT, THESE TEENS ALL HAVE CODES AND LANGUAGES THAT THEY DO NOT WANT US AS PARENTS TO KNOW. START SNOOPING PARENTS AND EDUCATE YOURSELF!!

    BOYZ N GREEN-PLEASE MAKE SURE ALL IS WELL IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD WHILE YOUR FRIENDS ARE INCARCERATED. PICK UP TRASH, MOVE CARS FROM FRONT YARDS, AND HELP LITTLE OLD LADIES DOWN THE CHURCH'S STEPS. YOU ARE ALL ASSETS TO MERIDIAN AND WE ARE ALL PROUD OF YOU. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND MAY EACH OF YOU CONTINUE TO BE PRODUCTIVE CITIZENS.

    What can be done to stop the next un-raised kid from taking someone's life. Does it take: GIVING THE CHILD HOPE? GIVING THE CHILD DISCIPLINE? EARLY INTERVENTION? A DIFFERENT SET OF PARENTS (i.e. Removal of the child from the home of people with poor parenting skills AT AN EARLY AGE)?
