What happened to Jarrod Duke Johnston?
The question what happened to Jarrod cannot be answered accurately as he is still considered a missing person at the time of this report.
However what we know is that Jarrod was seen last at his grandmother’s apartment in Yazoo City, Mississippi in the said date. Jarrod and his family were visiting the city for summer and Jarrod was to stay with his friend but his friends mother reportedly dropped him off at his grandmothers three days later. This caused an argument between Jarrod and his grandmother as she didn’t want him to stay at her place because he had done drugs in the past which landed him in rehab. She was scared of it happening again as she had painkillers at home.
According to reports, Jarrod took off at about 3 pm that day. He was said to have left with his black duffel bag, a backpack, his guitar in a black carrying case, and $20 cash.
