Contents

Tiequon Cox is serious, holding a painted portrait of a woman smiling, has black hair wearing eyeglasses, cyan earring and blue coat in a copper frame while standing in the middle of a room with a wooden cabinet at the back of his right arm and a doorway with painting on a brown wall at the back on his left, has gray old hair with black mustache wearing a red shirt under a black leather jacket with gold ring in his left hand.

Cox became one of the prime suspects of a mass murder investigation concerning the deaths of Ebora Alexander, aged 59, Dietra Alexander, aged 25, two boys Damon Bonner, aged 6, and Damani Garner-Alexander, aged 12. These four individuals were relatives of former NFL player and defensive back Kermit Alexander. Cox was also a noted member of the Rollin' 60, one of the many sets affiliated to the Crips, and actually still on parole on an unrelated charge.

Murders and possible motives

The events that occurred on August 31, 1984, are not clear, but what is known is that two suspects, described as being male, were seen bursting into the house of Ebora Alexander (the mother of Kermit Alexander) and opening fire, killing four people in the process. Two other family members who had previously been hiding, managed to scare off the gunmen, who were seen fleeing into a brown or maroon van. Later the two suspects would be caught and identified as Tiequon Cox, aged 18, and later a man Horace Edwin Burns, aged 20.[1][2] Both were known affiliates of the Rollin' 60. Burns was not one of the gunman it would turn out, but a look-out, along with two women Lisa Brown and Ida Moore, who drove the get-away vehicle. Darren Charles Williams would later be caught and identified as the other gunman.[3]

In the past many media outlets have cited that the reason behind the killings was a drug deal gone bad. This has been proven to be false. During the summer of 1983 a woman had been paralyzed in a shooting incident at a local Watts bar, and her family was suing the bar's owner in a multimillion dollar suit. The bar owner wanted to eliminate the lawsuit, so he hired the gang members to assassinate the girl's entire household. The bar owner wrote the family's address on a piece of paper, but Cox and his accomplices misread it and invaded the home of Ebora Alexander.

In 1986, he was found guilty of four counts of 1st degree murder, in accordance with premeditation laws, in the state of California. The jury further determined that he should be sentenced to death, placing him on death row.

Tiequon Cox stabbed Stanley "Tookie" Williams in 1988 while on death row. This is depicted in the 2004 TV film Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story.

On the afternoon of July 18, 2000, three inmates, regarded as some of San Quentin's most dangerous prisoners, almost escaped. The three, identified as Tiequon Cox, Paul Tuilaepa, and Noel Jackson, all rushed towards a hole that had been unraveled from a four foot section of a chain-link fence, nearly escaping with the intent of securing themselves hostages. However, the attempt failed and with some difficulty the officers managed to get all three inmates subdued and back into a controlled yard. But, the escape attempt left many officers re-addressing the serious security problems that had been plaguing San Quentin for years.

Several references are made about Cox and the 1984 murders he was suspected of and subsequently incarcerated for, in Leon Bing's Do or Die, a book documenting the lives of at-risk youth in late '80's inner city Los Angeles. This incident is also mentioned in the book "Monster; A Biography of an L.A. Gang Member" written by Kody "Monster" Scott, a member of the Eight Trey Gangsta Crips in Los Angeles.

The details of the murder were also discussed by Alex A. Alonso in a 2008 episode of History Channel's Gangland.

Outside the Lines did a show on Kermit Alexander and the murders of his family members on March 1st, 2015.
