After A woman’s son turns states evidence against two people, his life becomes endangered, but do to the lack of police conduct and the absolute necessity to protect there source, a woman’s son was murdered. Her son(James Cephus Potts}was found with two gun shots to the back of his head. The police and coronar,then labelled it a suicide.
Was there A police conspiracy or A cover up, A small towns police departments negligence to protect a boy just 19 years old, or was it plain neglect and or dereliction of duty on behalf of the police department?
This is the story and fight to seek justice for Cephus.
While words can never fully express how much someone means to us, language can still provide comfort, solace, hope and even inspiration following the death of a loved one. I certainly feel for the mother of her deceased son. I feel compassion and I can even feel the hurt she must have to bare.
This is one woman’s testimony about how she was scammed out of money. Scammed out of money during a time of a loss of her son and while her sons case had went cold.. And her sons killer had not been brought to justice. She was Scammed out of her time, her family’s private information and belongings of Cephus, and all by a woman claiming to be a COLD CASE detective and A FORENSICS EXPERT.
I have to take this opportunity to note, as well, that unfortunately all the money I paid out to Cerise Allen and to Carol Malone of upwards of forty-two hundred dollars, had to come from Cephus’ head stone fund, as I could not otherwise afford to pay these … “fees”. Suffice to say, I cannot afford to pay for a lawyer to help undo all the damage that has been done.
“I was approached in January of 2016 by one Carol Lynn Malone, who claimed to be a certified cold case death investigator (which is still publicly stated in her Twitter bio as I write this letter), that she was certified in forensic pathology, and much more, only to find out when it was too late, in the end that Carol grossly misrepresented her true professional position.
“Regardless of outcome, from January, 2016 until June, 2016, we worked together, and Carol earned my trust along the way until she requested the evidence in my son’s murder. I was just elated at the possibility that someone would finally re-open and re-examine my son’s death in a more in-depth and accurate investigation.”
“But June of 2016, would mark the beginning of more heartbreak and head aches, resulting in me fighting for my son’s belongings and evidence back, yet again, in attempts at continuing the journey and fight of justice for Cephus.
“On June 7, 2016, I sent the packaged evidence items with a money order in the amount of one hundred dollars to Carol Malone of Virginia, to the attention of Cold Case Justice (the name in which Carol claimed she had a business licensed under). About three days later, she sent me a message in confirmation of her receipt.
“Carol promised after that point, that she would have the evidence processed for human blood, and DNA for answers as to who was around my son the night he died.
“For the next several months, I bared witness to Carol’s reasons & excuses after excuses as to why her promise hadn’t been fulfilled. Reasons ranged from working long hours at work (for what company? I don’t know), to her niece (in another state) going in and out of hospital with aneurisms, down to “I will when I get paid”. Carol never clarified with me what that last statement meant but it was the last put off she gave to me directly.
I endured all these excuses and procrastinations from Carol while I was diagnosed with and suffering early treatment/plans for cancer.
The stress this ordeal with Carol has caused me has hindered my health, there’s no doubt about it, but the added stress and pain of cancer is like I’m now on borrowed time. Until I’m cured, I am on borrowed time. And still seeking justice for Cephus.
By the end of March, I reached out for help and other supporters of my fight in seeking justice for Cephus stepped forward and reached out to Carol. To one person, Carol advised I would have to get a court order, then she advised to yet another party that she disposed of the evidence, then stated to that same person that Carol sent the items and evidence to Reynoldsburg Police Department. A later claim from Carol was that she would turn evidence over to the police if approached.
From these points forward, Carol has gone on to slander mine and my son’s names via her Twitter account, she has publicly taunted me and my supporters with these items, and has harassed myself, my fiancée and supporters of justice for Cephus, one of which she has targeted for libel, slander and further harassment.
In March of 2017, Carol has not only refused to return the money she took from me for services she did not provide, but she has also refused to return Cephus’ belongings and evidence to me, or to a third party. Let me clarify that I asked for the items to be either forwarded to Scott Hamilton, who Carol identified as a business partner, or to be returned to myself. Carol refused to forward the items to Scott, and she said she would return the items to myself, but she never did.
The story you are about to read is true, it is based on evidence and testimony already stated.
James Cephus Potts was found deceased July 13,2012,it was just ten days before his nineteenth birthday.Cephus was killed by execution-style gunshot wounds to the back of the head, by a gun that was wiped clean of any finger prints or blood. Somehow, his death was ruled a suicide, but as you can tell from what I’ve said, suicide could not be possible. It is with this information, and my gut instincts as Cephus’ mother, that I knew I needed to seek justice for my son since his untimely death.
“With these questions and more, I have sought justice and answers ever since. Along my resulting journey, I have not been able to get justice for Cephus just yet, but I have gained some answers I needed to find just enough of the truth of my son’s death to know that it was not a death by suicide.
Although this story is one that makes me saddened to read about. We also have to keep in mind there was also one more incident with the woman named Carol Lynn Malone, concerning another woman who had a murdered relative. This was her story.
Carol L Malone calls herself a cold case and forensics expert, she states she works with law enforcement. Upon pulling her arrest record, we found this about her so called non violent life.
Carol L Malone has her own arrest record in Indiana, but states she was never arrested or charged. Ask yourself, first if she has a criminal record, how could she even begin to work on unsolved homicides? then? https://wordpress.com/posts/paranormalheraldmagazine.com

BACK TO THE STORY!
“Carol has also refused to return the money in the amount of the money order I paid to her and her private firm of Cold Case Justice. Carol possesses not only private information but information that could be classified as further evidence in Cephus’ case, and has publicly displayed my private contact information via social media, putting me and my family in harm’s way.
“By the end of March, I reached out for help and other supporters of my fight in seeking justice for Cephus stepped forward and reached out to Carol. To one person, Carol advised I would have to get a court order, then she advised to yet another party that she disposed of the evidence, then stated to that same person that Carol sent the items and evidence to Reynoldsburg Police Department. A later claim from Carol was that she would turn evidence over to the police if approached.
Carol Malone is also known for her part in an event, that went sour and venue holders were left with a very sizeable bill.
Paranormal fraud haunting town of Tombstone.
TOMBSTONE – An event planner supposedly tricked people out of thousands of dollars this past weekend in Tombstone.
Carol Malone planned a weekend paranormal event called “A Haunting of Tombstone.” From May 1 through May 3, tourists paid for tickets expecting a weekend of paranormal speakers, celebrities and even a ghost tour. However, local business owners are claiming she skipped town without paying them and without having any events set up for the tourists.
“We [were] counting on making this money. Other people that contacted us and wanted to come here for the weekend,” said Stacy Corbon, co-owner of Sister Paranormal Investigators. “We had to turn them away because we were booked.”
Now, local business owners are worried it could harm their “tourist town”.
“I felt that our town had been cheated. We thrive on people coming to our town. This lady [took money from] so many people. That could devastate Tombstone,” said Corbon.
Tombstone Marshal said Malone was detained, but has since been released. They are now planning on passing the case to the state attorney general.
