3 Charged with Murder over Drug Robbery; the Slain Man Wasn't Involved in That Crime, St. Johns Officers Say


Bound, beaten, shot and left in a Toyota Corolla trunk on a dirt road in St. Johns County, a Jacksonville man was killed in retaliation for a drug deal robbery, authorities said Tuesday.

But in announcing three arrests in the slaying of James Vincent Brookins, 45, the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office said the victim wasn't involved in the robbery.

Harry Lewis Henderson, 31, Sharina Jadne Parker, 30, and Rodrick D. Williams, 16, were charged with kidnapping and murder. All are from Jacksonville.

Brookins was discovered April 28 in car trunk off St. Ambrose Church Road in Elkton. He had been reported missing two days earlier by his mother after last being seen in Jacksonville.

St. Johns County detectives worked with Jacksonville investigators, since most of the incident occurred in Duval County, finding and interviewing almost 100 people. Detectives served a search warrant Thursday at a home in the 2100 block of Caljon Road in Southside Jacksonville and found evidence, authorities said.

Investigators said the U.S. Marshals Service arrested Parker May 3 in Jacksonville. Henderson was arrested Thursday by Jacksonville police, while Williams was arrested Saturday in Orange Park.

The Sheriff's Office said an armed robbery occurred during a drug transaction earlier that April day in Jacksonville, and someone thought the victim was involved. But it was later learned to be untrue.

Detectives also tracked down electronic communication that helped lead them to the arrests. But the investigation is continuing and anyone with more information can contact the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office at (904) 824-8304.
