Frazier had been abducted in a grocery store parking lot and shot in the head.

Kingston was reportedly scheduled to graduate from kindergarten today.

Mississippi Bureau of Investigation launched the search Thursday morning, after Kingston Frazier, 6, was seen in a stolen auto taken from a Kroger on I-55 North in Jackson.

Details surrounding the murder of 6-year-old Kingston Frazier are starting to crystalize after false statements from the Hinds County sheriff led to rampant rumors and accusations of involvement by the child's family.

The license plate on the Toyota Camry is HYX 783.

Officials say the teens killed the boy after stealing his mother's auto. An alert was put out for the missing child, and relatives told WJTV they had combed the city looking for Kingston. However, at about 9:45 a.m. on Thursday morning, the Amber Alert in the case was cancelled.

Jackson police chief Lee Vance held an emotional press conference Thursday morning, asking whoever has Kingston to bring him home.

If the three teens are found guilty of capital murder, prosecutors could seek the death penalty.

Dwan Wakefield, McBride and D'Allen Washington were taken into custody Thursday and booked into the Madison County Detention Center.

Washington turned himself in Thursday afternoon and McBride was the last to be taken into custody.

Police also recovered a Honda Civic that was apparently used to drop off the suspect who stole the Camry.

Police said a multi-jurisdictional investigation is underway.

Across town, at the district attorney's office, another heart-wrenching scene unfolded as the rest of Kingston's family, including his mother, learned he had died.

Just a great, great, 6-year-old who we just can't imagine that something like this would happen, that people would have in their heart to do that to a 6-year-old. "To me, it's hatred".

"[We] just can't imagine that something like this would happen, that people would have in their heart to do that to a 6-year-old", Archie said.

Madison County Schools Superintendent Ronnie McGehee said this is a tragic situation on all parts and they are praying for everyone involved.

There are no words to express the anger and sadness over the loss of Kingston Frazier.
