No Justice For Kandi’s Man… Or Is Sickle Cell Really To Blame???

"Kandi Burruss AJ Jewell"

Frederick Richardson, the man arrested in connection with the death of A.J. Jewell will not face any charges in Jewell’s death — and Jewell’s family is blaming Kandi!!! Pop the hood for details.

The Fulton County prosecutor’s office in Atlanta dropped charges of voluntary manslaughter against the alleged killer of Kandi Burruss’ ex fiancé, A.J. Jewell.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office ruled that Jewell died as a result of a sickle cell crises and not the injuries sustained in a fight with Frederick Richardson, the manager of the strip club Body Tap in Atlanta.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said the decision to prosecute or drop the charges was delayed because Jewell’s family disputed the original autopsy findings.

“Following the initial announcement from the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office that Mr. Jewell’s death resulted from a sickle cell crisis, the family of the deceased expressed grave concern regarding the accuracy of the autopsy findings,” DA spokesperson Yvette Brown read in a statement. ““For that reason, our office enlisted the service of two additional medical experts who specialize in the area of sickle cell diagnosis and treatment.” Brown’s statement said the other medical experts concurred with the initial autopsy findings that Ashley Jewell died as a result of a sickle cell crisis.”

Jewell’s family remains irate at Burruss, whom they blame for prejudicing the case to prosecute Richardson when she went on the “Housewives”‘ reunion show and hinted that Jewell passed away from complications from sickle cell anemia.

Being mad at Kandi isn’t going to bring A.J. back, but we still can’t believe Richardson isn’t facing some kind of charges. We’re not sickle cell experts, but considering that fight was a bloody one, isn’t it connected to Jewell’s sickle cell crisis???

Where’s all our BOSSIP medical experts? Dr. Hayden Drake, where you at son?

    I dont remember Khandi ever saying anything about sickle cell on the reunion show. I might be wrong but could someone post it on you tube or something

  • Ciara's back

    Thats BULLSHIT. That coward who wanted to FIGHT AJ provoked the “Sickle Cell” attack or w/e the hell it is — he SHOULD BE PUNISHED!! You let monsters like this roam the streets ugh

  • Interlude

    I am just going to wish the families peace, love, and forgiveness.

  • Somali Ninga

    WOW look @ Kandi’s face on that picture! PHOTOSHOPPED!!
    AJ got the living $hit beaten outta him and that’s why his black a$$ died! Not by that sickle cell mumbo jumbo!!! Kandi’s dumba$$ fu©ked big time!

  • Typical Court of LAw

    The court system doesn’t care if blacks kill other blacks. They will let the murderer roam free.

    However if a black person kills a white person the black individual will get life in prison/death penalty.

    Murder is always ok when blacks are killing blacks.

    However when blacks start targeting whites then the government will have a major issue with the ordeal smfh.

    It’s an unfortunate situation and thoughts definitely go out to the family but I don’t think charges should be brought up. I mean both were fighting and let’s not forget that AJ started the fight. Both men were hospitalized and if AJ didn’t have sickle cell, which probably did cause complications, he may have lived. I have a hard time believing that if Fred started the fight and ended up dying, people would be calling for AJ to be brought up on murder charges. I’m just saying

  • NURSEJ

    OK…IF U BREAK N2 SOMEONES HOUSE AND D FRIGHT CAUSING DEM 2 HAV A HEART ATTACK, U R LEGALLY LIABLE. SO WHA IS D DIFFERENCE HERE. IF D TRAMA FROM D FIGHT CAUSED D SICKLE CELL FLARE UP DAT CAUSED HIS DEATH, DUDE SHOULD HAV BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE. UNLESS OF COURSE HE ACTED N SELF DEFENSE.

  • NURSEJ

    @CANDANCE…I HAV BEEN A LICENSED NURSE 4 TEN YRS…WELL SAID!!!

    Sickle Cell is nothing to play with..I was born with it.

  • Samael

    The person with the money always gets blamed. Looks like his family is angling for money.

    Nobody forced this guy to pick a fight in a strip club parking lot. He’d probably still be alive if he’d been living a more respectable life.

  • LISTENUP

    FIRST OFF KNOW THAT THEY DO NOT, REPEAT DO NOT, CARE ABOUT A BLACK MAN’S LIFE IN ATLANTA GEORGIA PERIOD. NEXT THE BLACK PROSECUTOR NEVER EVER WINS ANYTHING, EVER. REMEMBER THE RAY LEWIS CASE WHERE THE GUYS FROM OHIO WERE MURDERED AND THEY JUST LET THEM WALK? I KNEW THEN HOW SORRY THE BLACK CITY ATTORNEYS WERE. THE SOUTH JUST DOES NOT PUT A VALUE ON THE BLACK MALE THERE AND FEMALES SHOOT A KILL BLACK MEN IN DOMESTIC ARGUMENTS AND THEN WALK. I’VE SEEN SEVERAL CASES THAT WHERE THE FEMALE SHOULD HAVE GONE TO JAIL AND DIDN’T. SEVERAL CASES WERE FEATURED ON TV. THIS IS A DAMN SHAME, AND THIS IS HOW THE RACIST SOUTH STILL IS. THIS GUY NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN WITH KANDI BURRESS IN THE FIRST PLACE. HE DID NOT WANT TO BE ON THAT SHOW AND IT BROUGHT ATTENTION TO HIM AND MADE OTHER MEN JEALOUS OF HIM. SICKLE CELL MY AZZ, HE WAS MURDERED.

    I’m not surprised the charges was dropped. Last year when did this happened, I speculated on an earlier related thread that he may get off, due to the circ.u.m.stances leading up to the fight, and photos of Richardson’s face, which displayed multiple bruises and trauma. Any competent attorney could claim self-defense on Richardson’s part…And on the off chance that he would’ve been charged, it would be no more than an INVOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER charge. He probably would’ve done no more than a year (if that), and about 2 to 3 years probation.

  • Bri

    I believe he got off because yes there was an alter cation, but Richardson did not know that AJ had sickle cell. AJ knew he had sickle cell, and I am pretty sure that he knew that fighting was not in his best interest. Certain questions had to have been addressed (I am sure) like: Who initiated the fight?
    I strongly doubt that this is a case of hating the black man. Also, I am sure that Richardson will live with this guilt for the rest of his life.

  • tazd

    This man is gone and may he RIP but like BRI said AJ was the only person in the fight who knew he had sickle cell. That was his responsibility. Regardless clearly the other guy had no intentions to kill him…it was a fight. Most of us have been in fights does that mean we should be charged with attempted murder? To charge this other guy with murder would be not bring back AJ but it would destroy another black man’s life.

    It was (allegedly) over Richardson walking in on his girlfriend and AJ engaging in some inappropriate sexual behavior…From there, things went south. Trust, though, Richardson received a lot of damage from AJ durin’ the fight. He (Richardson) was pretty beat up.

    “Murder is always ok when blacks are killing blacks.

    Have you even been in an Atlanta court? Or dealt with Atlanta city government? You really think an all black city government is gonna start caring when whites are “targeted.” hokay!

  • LadyTee

    @ Bri, I completely agree with everything you said. Richardson didn’t know he had sickle cell, and he probably didn’t intend to kill him by fighting. Well, there’s a lesson to be learned here that many will still ignore: violence is never the answer!!

    WOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!!
