Brandon’s wife, Jessica, is now speaking out about the incident that changed her life when their drive home after a holiday kayaking trip took a turn.

Jessica says she was driving about 20 minutes behind Brandon on I-10 when the incident happened. Now, she and Babs Box, Brandon’s mom, are pleading to the public for answers so they can begin to find peace within their family. Jessica said, “Me and Brandon deeply loved each other, and we were absolutely inseparable since the time we met 11 years ago when we were 19 years old. So I have to find the person that took him away from me.”

Babs said, “He was just the love of my life. Somebody had to have seen something for 19 miles for this to go on and nobody saw or called 911, just hoping this will jog someone’s memory. A lot of mother’s have sons, you shouldn’t have to bury them because of road rage.”

Brandon was driving a white 2019 Dodge Ram 1500, pulling an enclosed white trailer on I-10 westbound around 4:30 p.m. on Memorial Day between mile marker 68 and 51 when he was shot and killed in the road rage incident.

It is believed the suspects were in a small white or silver SUV or hybrid with a Louisiana tag, driven by a black female, a black male in the passenger seat, and multiple people in the back seats.

If you have any information about the incident call the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations or you can call Coast Crime Stoppers anonymously.

Crime Stoppers is now offering a $10,000 reward for anyone who helps lead to an arrest in this case.
