James Edward, 15, is the youngest of the three teens implicated in the murder of 22-year-old college baseball player Christopher Lane. He, along with Chancey Luna, 16, is being charged with first degree murder. The eldest of the three suspects, Michael Jones, 17, is being charged with being an accessory to murder for allegedly driving the vehicle during the murder.
Here are some of James Edward’s Vines. They prominently feature gang signs, references to being a “Crip,” wads of cash, and even a large rifle. Also in many of the videos is Chancey Luna, fellow murder suspect and the one who was reportedly holding the gun during the killing.
