Psychiatrist Dr. Steven Pitt, 59, paralegals Veleria Sharp, 48, and Laura Anderson, 49, hypnotherapist and life coach Marshall Levine, all of them having a connection to Jones’ 2009 divorce and custody battle, were between the murdered victims. Pitt also testified in the Jones’ divorce case, saying that Dwight Jones “poses a high risk to perpetrate violence toward mother, the minor child and/or himself.” Dwight Jones might be tied to a double murder in Fountain Hill; the names of those victims are Bryon Thomas and Mary Simmons. Jones accused his ex-wife’s attorney of spreading lie, on a material posted on YouTube.
Three of the six victims
Jones’ ex wife is a Phoenix-area radiologist and author who was embroiled in a high-conflict divorce with him for years. She called Dwight Lamon Jones a “very emotionally disturbed person” and said she had “feared for my safety for the past nine years.” The court records say there was a minor child involved in the divorce case. Jones also appears to have had a Twitter account in which he directed messages to his son, writing, “open letter to my son …been trying to see you for years.your mom stop the visits!”
