Newtown Section of Sarasota Fl No Snitchin: Travis Combs Murdered & Jabez Spann Kidnapped 7 Months Ago & No One Knows Nuttin? If a kid goes missing like Jabez Spann, no fuss, no muss, no struggle just vanishes without a trace who do you look for, SOMEONE HE KNEW. Teresa Richardson is the aunt of 31-year-old Travis Combs who was murdered on August 28th, 2017, shot to death in a vacant lot in the 1600 block of 22nd St, right next to her house, in the Newtown Section of Sarasota Fl. Richardson said one of the three people involved in her nephew’s murder took his car after he was shot and left it burned in Manatee County. The perpetrators fired one shot at 31-year-old Combs, whose body was discovered in the grass field on 22nd Street. Combs’ murder has been overshadowed by the case of Jabez Spann, a 14-year-old Sarasota boy who went missing after he reportedly witnessed Combs’ murder and now 7 months later appears to have been kidnapped by Travis Combs killers.

No Snitchin In Newtown From the Mayor of Sarasota to the Pastor in Newtown to the Sex Offender on Who Murdered Travis Combs. Apparently Reginald Parker, a registered sex offender and ex-con, witnessed the murder of Travis Combs by 3 thugs. Supposedly someone got with pastor Kelvin Lumpkin in the Newtown section of Sarasota Fl and revealed additional information about the unsolved murder of Travis Combs whose body was found in an empty lot in the 1600 block of 22nd Street in Newtown. Sarasota cops got wind that the pastor may have vital information about 'the 3 thugs' who killed Travis Combs and who may be involved in the kidnapping of Jabez Spann who apparently witnessed the murder of Travis Combs on August 28th, 2017. But in comes the Mayor of Sarasota Shelli Freeland Eddie who just happens to be an attorney with a law office on Dr Martin Luther King Way in the heart of Newtown. Mayor of Sarasota Shelli Freeland Eddie writes a letter to the State Attorney's office and tells them and the Sarasota Cops that she now represents pastor Kelvin Lumpkin and that he will not be talking to the cops or anyone else, Lumpkin will invoke his “pastoral privilege” and refuse to answer any questions about the murder of Travis Combs which could link to the kidnapping of Jabez Spann, what the hell?
Newtown Teen Jabez Apparently Spann Kidnapped After Witnessing the Murder of Travis Combs on 22nd Street only 453 Feet From His House. It is only 453 feet from the house where Jabez Spann was staying on 23rd Street to the empty lot where Travis Combs was murdered near 22nd Street and Palmadelia Avenue, I walked it on September 26th, 2017 and took surveillance photos of the out in the open drug sales on 22nd Street and published my article, Wednesday, September 27, 2017, Does Murder of Travis Combs Link to Disappearance of Teen Jabez Spann in Newtown Fl. It was observed that there is an unobstructed view from the house on 23rd Street where Jabez Spann was staying to the street corner where Travis Combs was murdered.
Jabez Spann was named in Reginald Parker’s arrest report. The documents placed Jabez Spann at the scene of the murder. It was the first official acknowledgement that Jabez Spann may have witnessed a murder before he disappeared on September 4th, 2017. According to the report, Reginald Parker told three people that Jabez Spann was outside, along with two others, when Combs was fatally shot by 3 local thugs. The document says that Jabez Spann exclaimed, “Oh my God. Y’all shot him,” after Combs was killed. But according to the report, Parker changed his account once inside the jail. When pressed by detectives, Parker denied telling anyone he saw Travis Combs’ death. Travis Combs wasn’t an angel, Richardson said. A Florida Department of Law Enforcement report showed that the 31-year-old man had been charged with possessing and selling marijuana, a lot of marijuana.
WHO SHOT TRAVIS COMBS: From information that I obtained on my own it has been discovered that Travis Combs was known to pull his vehicle into the empty lot on 22nd Street and sell marijuana from his car. It also became apparent to the 3 local Newtown thugs that Travis Combs would have large amounts of cash on him from the drug sales. Apparently Reginald Parker and Jabez Spann witnessed 3 local Newtown thugs rob and murder Travis Combs for his money.
