No video evidence exists of the January encounter between Rankin County deputies that lawyers allege led to torturing, tasing, and the unprovoked shooting of a man, according to exclusive documents obtained by the department.
Body camera logs reveal that Deputy Napoleon Valino activated his camera at 9:41 p.m., two hours before another deputy shot Michael Corey Jenkins in the mouth.
The next recording took place at 1:25 a.m., with Deputy Hunter Lewis activating his camera for nearly 20 minutes.
It’s unclear whether Valino or Lewis was one of the deputies who originally responded to that scene.
The documents show a gap of three and a half hours where no footage was recorded.
