Holy Nostrils Batman!

Perusing the Fort Wayne local yokel criminal blotter and came across this story…

Second man charged with murder in Christmas Eve ambush shooting

Another man has been charged with murder in connection to a Christmas Eve shooting near Tillman Park.

Allen County prosecutors on Monday formally charged 20-year-old Trivel D. Crum with murder, two counts of attempted murder, and criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon.

Around 3:12 a.m. Dec. 24, Fort Wayne police responded to the 700 block of Tillman Road- near the intersection of South Hanna Street- where two victims were found with gunshot wounds in a car that had crashed. A third man was also in the car but did not have any injuries.

On Dec. 28, FWPD arrested 28-year-old Deondre T. Jones on three counts of attempted murder in connection to the shooting. Jones was later charged with murder after one of the victims, 25-year-old Javion Jaquan Grandberry, died from a gunshot wound to his head five days after the shooting. The other man who was shot had non-life-threatening injuries.

Dey sho knows hows to celemibrate dem holly daze! Also Javion Jaquan Grandberry? Sounds like Wakandan royalty. That isn’t what caught my eye. Nope, see if you can spot it….

Damn son. Last time I saw flared nostrils like that they were on the final turn with a jockey riding behind them. Brother can smell the chicken frying from the next county over.

That’s all, busy today and Trivel and his enormous nostrils just cracked me up. With apologies to Denzel in Training Day

Mr. Ed ain’t got nothing on me!

(I couldn’t decide which one I liked better.)

    If you’re going to go through life with a name like Trivel D. Crum, you’d better be exceptional in some manner. For this simian throwback, extraordinary nostrils will have to do, unless he is hiding an uncommon intelligence under dat homeboy scowl.

    The dead lad, Javion Jaquan Grandberry, was clearly going places with a handle like that, until his life was rudely cut short by Messrs. Crum and Jones. Too bad, really. Crum, Grandberry and Jones would have made a fine name for a law firm, if only da boyz’ grounding was Talmudic rather than protohuman.


    There once was a treeboon named Trivel,
    Its mind full of bullshit and drivel,
    When it pulls the trigger,
    That lunatic nigger,
    Its nostrils will flare up and sizzle.

    Trivel D. Crum, Deondre T. Jones and Javion Jaquan Grandberry. Weren’t they minor characters in Star wars as a sidekick to salacious Crum?

    You might think that Nostrildamus should have been able to smell the inevitable consequences of his impulsive action before he capped the late, lamented Javion Jaquan Grandberry. Perhaps Nostril Dumbass would be a more fitting sobriquet.

    For the sake of accuracy, the ghetto horses above should be holding their gats sideways. No offense to horses mind you.
