Search For Killer Continues Two Years After Plaza Midwood Murder


CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Few clues nearly two years after a murder that stunned people in Plaza Midwood.

26-year-old Ketie Jones was shot and left to die behind a real estate business on Hamorton Place, early in the morning of October 15th, 2016.

“It’s something you never, ever imagine is ever going to happen, especially to the most alive person you know,” Ketie’s mother Jevona Livingston told WCCB Charlotte in 2016.

She says Ketie had a big heart and huge personality.

A few months ago CMPD released video from the night Ketie was murdered. You can see her in the distance – walking along The Plaza and then taking a left. About a minute later, headlights can be seen backing up on Hamorton Place.

“There is usually someone who knows something who can help us. And for whatever reason, those people up to this point have remained silent. We implore them not to,” said CMPD Deputy Chief Jeff Estes in 2017.

Ketie’s friends haven’t given up hope her killer will be found. Earlier this year, they canvassed Plaza Midwood, re-tracing Ketie’s steps and trying to determine which direction the mysterious car went.

“We’re out here as friends and family and a community to invoke change and say that even though we don’t see CMPD out here on foot, that doesn’t mean no one will be and that we are,” said Ketie’s friend Cara Jorgensen.
