The suspect in the murder of 29-year-old Quintina Jeffries in Benton Harbor on Sunday is dead. Samuel Brown shot himself Tuesday night in St. Joseph after attending the Benton Harbor-Dowagiac basketball game. Brown had been actively posting on Facebook until just after 2 p.m. Tuesday, sharing pictures and video of the two of them and expressing his grief over the shooting death of his girlfriend.
He and Jeffries were moving in together in a home on West May Street on Sunday when he shot her at least four times. She is survived by her parents, her eight-year-old son, and a large extended family. Prior to Brown’s suicide, detectives had said they were getting “great cooperation” from several potential witnesses.
