WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. - A local mother is in pain after she lost two of her children to gun violence within the last year.
Investigators told FOX13 Basha Thomas, 24, was found dead sitting in a vehicle at the Imperial Homes Apartments.
Sources who know Thomas told FOX13 he is the brother of Jordyne Craig, the 15-year-old girl from West Memphis who lost her life in a drive-by shooting last summer.
Craig was gunned down in the 500 block of South 15th St. in June 2018.
Police said Craig was walking with an 18-year-old man, identified as Jiterion Kegler, when multiple shots came from a moving car.
