Deputy Sheriff John E. Jones

Suspect-Investigator-Social Commentator on same case.

Was a suspect in homicide (dated mom for 3.5 years and sent threatening letters to both mother of Garrett and Hillary) Investigated homicide along with good friend Lt. Murray) and lied about his whereabouts 15 minutes before Garrett was attacked. Last person known to see Garrett Phillips.

Words from Garrett’s mother Tandy Cyrus written almost a year before Garrett died tell indicate that Cyrus had an issue with Deputy Sheriff John Jones. In January of 2011, she wrote a formal complaint to the St Lawrence County attorney’s office.

She wrote:
“John has been acting in various ways that causes me to fear for the safety of myself and my sons.”
She said Jones was acting threatening and jealous, appearing at her home without warning.
Cyrus concluded that she and her sons were in danger and that she feared Jones’s actions would continue or “even escalate.”
Tandy Cyrus and Nick Hillary—the man facing charges for Garrett’s murder—were a couple at this point.

Three months earlier, Hillary also made a formal complaint about Jones. He claimed Jones confronted and threatened him, that his personal property was damaged:
