Jones, who reportedly told police he was homeless and looking for food when he was shot in the girl’s house last week, appears to be the author of a recent Craigslist post titled, “Desperate.”
The post, which was uploaded to the popular classified advertising website Oct. 10, seems to reveal that Jones was indeed homeless and down on his luck in recent days.
“I have nowhere to go ... nobody I can rely on,” the ad says. “I was looking forward to work but the job fell through after I got here. I had enough to (get) me through to yesterday morning ... I’m dead on my feet. I just need a place to crash for a week so I can enough money together (to) move on.”
In the ad, the author claims he spent a recent night wandering around “the casino” near Durant and was surprised nobody kicked him out.
He also claims in the rambling post to be a “strong worker” and “a great cook” and described himself as “a little on the heavy side.”
The phone number on the Craigslist post, which included a Texarkana area code, was disconnected by Monday afternoon.
