New information on murder of African immigrant

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- New information has surfaced about a fatal shooting involving a Louisville man and an African immigrant.

Jason Majors has been locked up at Metro Corrections since August. In the beginning, it seemed to be a murder without much of a motive, but court records indicate the suspect may have been in love or obsessed with the victim's wife.

911 dispatcher: "911 operator Davis...what's your emergency?"

911 caller: "Hello, yes...Can I have an ambulance please in Park Hill?"

Dispatcher: "Where at in Park Hill?"

Caller: "By Building 27 and Moore Court."

Dispatcher: "Inside or outside?"

Caller: "I'm outside...I'm outside...someone got shot."

At first it didn't make sense. 36-year-old African immigrant Karenzo Audace was shot to death as his family loaded a moving truck to leave the Park Hill housing projects.

"I felt the same way when his mother and father had called me. I didn't know for sure if he knew, and I asked them did Jason know the family?" says Christopher 2X.

After the murder, police located the gun inside a nearby garbage can, but the suspect, Jason Majors, was on the loose for several days.

"He basically told me that he had sent some letters or put something in her mailbox," says 2X.

Christopher 2X, with Fight Crimes Against Children, helped negotiate Majors' surrender and got some insight into a possible motive in route to police headquarters.

"I remember us riding down to LMPD before he surrendered himself. He was talking about, you know, things that he was sending her, and he just felt that he wanted a relationship with her."

These court documents also indicate Majors sent the victim's wife 18-hundred dollars, keys and a cell phone, and even tried to get into her car. That's when management was notified, and Majors was eventually arrested. His attorney admits it's all a little strange.

"And that's one of the reasons why we wanted to have that competency evaluation done so that we can know whether he will be able to stand trial and what defense we'll have at that point," says Attorney Derwin Webb.

According to court documents, the victim's wife "denied there was ever any sexual relationship" between her and Majors, and she had the same conversation with 2X.

"I want to make it clear as I can make it. She told me that she never wanted to have a relationship with him."

Majors is charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence. Meanwhile, the competency evaluation is due back in six weeks.
