Six-year-old Kingston Frazier was found dead just hours after he was kidnapped while he was sleeping in his mother's car early Thursday morning in Jackson, Mississippi. (SOUNDBITE) VICTIM'S AUNT DEANNA MOORE SAYING: "This is the worst thing to wake up to. We were looking for him for hours." According to the Jackson Police Department, Kingston's mother was inside a Kroger store around 1 am... While she was inside, a Honda Civic drove up and a passenger got out and jumped into her Camry with Kingston in it and drove off. An alert was put out for the missing child... but eight hours later and just 10 miles from the store, police found Kingston dead from at least one single gun shot wound. He was found in his mother's abandoned car on a rural Madison County road. (SOUNDBITE) MADISON COUNTY SHERIFF RANDY TUCKER SAYING: "We have three individuals in custody for these crimes they are currently here in the detention center in Madison County. They'll all be charged with capital murder"... And the suspects are also eligible for the death penalty. Kingston's uncle said his nephew's death came on the day he was supposed to graduate from first grade. (SOUNDBITE) VICTIM'S UNCLE MARTIN ARCHIE SAYING: "He was so excited. That's all he's been talking about yesterday was, was his graduation today so we were looking forward to seeing him and this happened."
