Later that day, Justin Judd and a friend, who had been his best man at the wedding, came home to find the body of Justin’s beautiful new bride lying on the blood-spattered kitchen floor of their apartment. She had been viciously attacked and stabbed to death. In November 1995, Jeremy Jones was charged in his first rape case; only two months later, he was charged again for a second rape and the unlawful possession of methamphetamine, the drug that would hold sway over his life during the coming decade.
Inspired by the rock group Kiss, he painted the boys’ faces black and white in a quite good imitation of the rockers’ distinctive makeup. Then, after the boys left to go trick-or-treating, pleased with the cool way that their grown-up friend had made them look, Chapman left the McIntosh home and went out in search of some Halloween entertainment of his own. Gipson’s, a popular bar and restaurant in Douglasville, which Chapman frequented on a regular basis, was throwing a costume party for their customers on October 31, 2002.
The court officials sent him to Hominy, Oklahoma, where he was held at the Dick Conner Correctional Center to be evaluated, and hopefully rehabilitated, by the court services unit in preparation for his sentencing. There, the staff experienced some of Jones’s first efforts at skillfully manipulating the authorities and telling them exactly what they wanted to hear. Jones convinced his evaluators that he had realized drugs had destroyed his life, told them that he “used to have” a drug problem, and said that he was filled with regret for the things that he had done.
