A Virginia man who was arrested for stealing $5 worth of snacks has died in jail
After being held in Hampton Roads Jail in Portsmouth, Virginia since May 11, 2015 for stealing, Jamycheal Mitchell, 24, has died. Mitchell was found unresponsive in his cell about 5:45 AM on August 19, 2015 and he was pronounced dead shortly after.
Mr. Mitchell was arrested on April 22nd for petty larceny. A store clerk at the local 7-Eleven claimed Mitchell had stolen a bottle of soda, a candy bar and a small cake. According to court records Mitchell’s past charges have included petty theft, larceny and trespassing.
Jail officials told The Virginia-Pilot newspaper that he was being held there because he could not be placed in a mental hospital, though he was prescribed meds. While police are still investigating the cause of death, family members told The Guardian newspaper that Mitchell had stopped eating and had a history of mental illness taking medication in the past.
The Guardian, which published the initial report, spoke to the family before the medical examiner determines Mitchell’s cause of death. Ms. Holley could not confirm reports that he was starving himself or not taking medication. She told The Guardian,
His body failed and he lost up to 65lbs (29kg) in jail…Once we get results of the autopsy, we will know if there is any foul play, that determines what routes we go.”
A spokeswoman for the Hampton Roads Regional Jail has declined to make a statement as the family awaits the autopsy report.
It was just weeks ago that the Kartel Gang was riding high on the success of songs with Beanie Siegel, Red Cafe and Uncle Murda, but that all ended short last week as Russ Blade was murdered in Queens. Robbed for his jewelry in the late hours of the night, the Queens bred rapper is survived by his wife and daughter. While they still don’t have answers about who it was that senselessly killed Russ Blade, Bo and Blade knew each other since the sandbox as you can see in the art for this single.
Needless to say, this is a very tough time and this is an important song for both King Bo and Smit of Backdoor Movements (manager of Kartel Gang), as they try to carry on Russ Blade’s legacy. The legacy of Russ Blade’s music will live on through King Bo, who will continue to push on for Kartel Gang as a solo artist. While it may be some time before King Bo regroups after losing his brother from another mother, he felt it was necessary to pay tribute to Russ Blade with this song, “My Brothers Keeper.”

Skrillex, Deadmau5, Flying Lotus, Future, A$AP Ferg, Hot Chip and Glass Animals are among the artists that will perform at this year’s Hard Day of the Dead festival, which returns to Pomona, California’s Fairplex on October 31st and November 1st. Method Man & Redman, Gesaffelstein, Armand Van Helden, Juicy J, Ryan Hemsworth and many more will head to the Halloween weekend fest that also celebrates the annual Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos.
Deadmau5, Future, Hot Chip, Nero and Flying Lotus will headline the Saturday, October 31st festivities while Skrillex, a Gesaffelstein DJ set, Glass Animals, A$AP Ferg and a still-unannounced headliner will topline Sunday’s performances. Other acts at the EDM-leaning Day of the Dead festival include Vic Mensa, Felix da Housecat, Bonobo, Alison Wonderland, Groove Armada, Tommy Trash and Kill the Noise.
Early bird tickets for the fest are available now through Ticketmaster, but anyone under drinking age, be warned: According to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, this year’s Hard Day of the Dead fest has imposed a strict 21+ age limit and an 11 p.m. curfew in order to avoid Los Angeles County’s crackdown on electronic dance music festivals.
The countywide ban on EDM festivals comes after two teenage girls died from suspected overdoses at another HARD event in early August. The incident led to the cancellation of the one-day A Night of a Fairplex EDM fest in September, but Live Nation, which run the Hard fests, agreed to place age limitations and cap attendance at 40,000 festivalgoers for the Day of the Dead event as a compromise with county officials. Live Nation also agreed to provide increased security, medical services and access to free water as well as produce and distribute drug education at Hard Day of the Dead.
