Surveillance video showed that the three teenagers pulled up just minutes after Archie entered the store, and one of the suspects drove off in Archie’s car and the other two left in their car. The stolen vehicle was later found with Kingston's body inside. The Madison County coroner said Frazier had been shot multiple times.

According to the Associated Press, Mississippi Bureau of Investigation special agent Rusty Clark alleges that McBride was the one who stole Archie’s car and was also the one who shot and killed the child. However, investigators are still looking for the murder weapon.
