Rashaun Jones arrested in 2006 murder of Bryan Pata : University of Miami Football Player Killed by Teammate


Segment 4 MDPD Homicide detectives, with the assistance of the U.S. Marshals, have arrested Rashaun Jones in connection to the 2006 murder of Bryan Pata. According to the following statements posted on social media on August 20. 2021.

What Happened ?

Miami-Dade Police confirmed to NBC 6 that Rashaun Jones, who was a teammate with Pata from 2004 to 2006, was arrested Thursday in the Ocala area as part of a joint operation between the agency and U.S. Marshals.
Detectives say the 22-year-old Pata was walking from his car toward the stairs at the apartment building on Nov. 7, 2006 when he was shot in the back of the head at the complex located off Southwest 77th Avenue and 93rd Street.
Police said Pata and Jones had ongoing issues, with Pata allegedly beating Jones up during a physical altercation. Two months prior to the 2006 murder, Pata told his brother Edwin that Jones allegedly threatened to shoot him in the head. Pata did not report the threat, despite pleas from his brother to report the incident to then-football coach Larry Coker.

Clearly, yall either can’t comprehend OR just too lazy to read a 60 sec article. They were NOT friends. Pata and his killer were beefing for some time and they also had a physical fight .

Everything was known I can’t understand why it took so long but God is still good justice will be served and his family can now get some closure from this horrible tragedyStacey Calixte wrote
Crazy cause the news network said that he was charged in the case. So ultimately it’s not closed.

Referencing Marshals service doesn’t make your case stronger, what was the new evidence in the last months that made obtaining an arrest warrant warranted?

I remember going to work and hearing the news, I had to stop and park because I was crying my heart out! I never knew the young man; but it hurt the same way. Thanks God the homicide department found the killer. My respect goes to the police Dept and my love to Pata’s Family.

15yrs too long when clearly you had a good lead from teammates & An ex girlfriend who knew I’m sure. (Given her 3 different mug shots and current prison stint she ain’t no saint) and cell phone tower records. Thankfully Family didn’t let it rest & Espn did a follow up investigation. Plus being Black Haitian immigrants… didn’t help. But great point person for mdpd.. oh man he is the best.. that dude could talk Jesus down from the cross.
