SIBLEY – A Sibley man is dead and his son was arrested for his murder after a call of loose donkey led to the discovery of his body, Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton said.

A Sibley Police officer responded to a call of the loose animal in the early morning hours Friday at the 100 block of Fraizer Road. He knocked on the door and didn’t receive an answer. Sexton said the officer could see a portion of the body on the floor so he pushed the door open and discovered the remains of 57-year-old Billy Jack Joiner Jr.

Jon Conner Joiner, 22, is under arrest by Webster authorities for second-degree murder, Sexton said.

“We have a confession,” he said. “Our detectives made contact with him (Jon Joiner), and he confessed to the crime of killing his father.”

Sexton says the cause of death is blunt force trauma, confirming he was beaten to death by a baseball bat.

The sheriff says the two had ongoing domestic issues and believes Jon Joiner may have been upset because his father was making him move out of their home.

Within 10 hours, detectives with the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Criminal Investigation Division, in conjunction with Sibley Police Chief Jeremy Robinson, learned Billy Joiner Jr. was killed Wednesday, and Jon Conner Joiner fled to Bossier City in his father’s vehicle.

On Friday morning, Sexton says Jon Conner Joiner was on his way to pick up some things, and Bossier City police stopped him on a traffic violation. He was taken into custody when they learned he had warrants from Caddo, he said.

He is currently being held at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center on a $750,000 bond.

Not one comment mentioned the fact that his mother cindy died when he was just a child..she was my best friend and she adored her child and sadly left this earth with him left with no mother..i cant even imagine what he must have gone through not growing up with his mother and living a life without her at such an early age…and knowing what happened breaks my heart…people are so black and white about things and are quick to judge others…people turn to drugs when they cant cope with harsh things that are thrown at them ..doesnt mean they are bad people just means they are numbing themselves to pain they are experiencing because they have lost something along the way in life….people dont dont do drugs just because they enjoy it, they hate every minute they are using drugs..drug addiction is a mental disorder and people need to understand that but they dont.they just want to label them as bad people. These people suffer everyday unable to cope with life so they know , no other way to cope so they continue to use drugs and its a sickness that very few understand…so instead of throwing your harsh opinions around you need tovstop and thinkvuf that were a loved onevif your own or if you were in that situation…my heart goes out to my friend cindy although shes not here and to her son because as i see it, he was a child that lost his way somewhere….breaks my heart!
