We need you to speak for Ricky Ball if you saw any of the events that resulted in Ricky no longer being with us, his daughter and his family.
THE INVESTIGATION IS WHAT MAKES ANY CASE SOLID. Right now, the District Attorney only knows one side of what happened to Ricky Ball and that is the side of Canyon Boykin and the people who made sure Ricky Ball would not live to tell his side of how his life ended. This is why eyewitness testimony is going to be the KEY factor in making sure that the people who killed Ricky Ball face justice and go to prison for a very long time.
If you have information, you have to call or go by and talk with District Attorney Colom.

It is a FELONY for anyone to interfere with a District Attorney's investigation.

THIS VIDEO CLEARLY SHOWS US THERE WAS NO HURRY TO GET RICKY BALL TO THE HOSPITAL THE NIGHT HE WAS KILLED
Video by: Steve Rogers WTVA News
This video illustrates the deadly and unusual scheme that took place on 10/16/2015, the night Ricky Ball was murdered. Notice in the very beginning of this video how a police officer rushes up to block the news camera's view as the firefighters and EMTs load Ricky Ball into the ambulance. If you stop the video at about the 1 second mark, you can see this officer looking over the top of the police car at the news camera crew before he rushes up to block the news camera's view. This one instance in the very beginning of this video shows you that these officers were up to no good that night. The EMTs did not need him to signal them to load Ricky Ball into the ambulance. EMTs load people into ambulances regularly. The EMTs didn't need an officer's permission to load someone this time. That was all a show on this officer's part just so he would be in position to block the news camera's view. Who is this officer? AND, what is it that he and the others out there are trying to hide from the public by blocking the news camera's view?...
NEW PICTURES FROM THE CRIME SCENE WHERE RICKY BALL WAS KILLED...AND SOME VERY IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT THAT FATAL NIGHT.
Thanks to the assistance of Councilman Turner and Ernesto Ball, we were able to retrace the route Ricky Ball took on the fatal night that he was gunned down on 10/16/15 by rogue police officers in Columbus, MS. These pictures are from that route. We've added text to better explain the pictures and to show how they are connected.
The picture of the Elder Sister's home is one of the most revealing ones in the collection. It shows just how much danger every man, woman and child in the neighborhood was in that tragic night. If this Elder Sister did not have a metal back door, she could have easily been killed by the disrespectful cowboy-like behavior of the officers involved in the shooting that night. At least nine shots were fired at Ricky that night. That was nine different times that anyone in this neighborhood could have been killed in one night by stray bullets from officers who are sworn to protect and serve these very same people...
