“On February 10, 2023, after almost 13-years, 30-year-old Montrey Paige, Sr. of Loranger, was taken into custody and charged with second degree murder,” reports Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office Chief Jimmy Travis. “Paige was located and taken into custody in Chambers County, Texas late last week on outstanding warrants from Louisiana,” Travis continues.
Jamins Robinson (age 22) was found deceased on the side of the road on July 25, 2010. First responding officers believed Robinson was initially left for dead after being struck by a hit and run driver on Kemp St. in Independence. At the time, the Independence Police Department was the primary agency investigating the incident, with investigators from the TPSO assisting. As the investigation progressed, it was later learned that Robinson succumbed to injuries sustained from being struck with a blunt object to the back of the head, not a hit and run accident.
Over the years, TPSO veteran and Cold Case Detective Mike Sticker has persistently looked over the facts in this case alongside Independence Police Chief Frank Edwards III, and continued to actively work leads and interview Robinson’s friends, family, and known acquaintances. A break in the case came when Sticker identified and located an eyewitness who finally came forward with information. This information, partnered with evidence obtained throughout the investigation, led to the arrest of the accused. Although Paige was already a person of interest, it was Detective Sticker's hard work, persistence, and dedication to this investigation which led to Paige’s arrest. “This is just one example of the quality work that the men and women of the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office do." Travis says.
“Although Paige’s arrest won’t bring Jamins back, we’re hoping it brings a sense of peace and closure for his family and friends.” says Travis. “Justice is finally served.”
On February 10, 2023, TPSO detectives took Paige into custody and transported him to the Tangipahoa Parish Jail where he was booked on the following charges: Second Degree Murder, Failure to Appear (3 counts), and Jumping Bail on a Felony Case.
