PANOLA COUNTY, Miss.- Ali Alsanai, the clerk at the gas station where Jessica Chambers stopped the night of her death, has been cleared by police as no longer a suspect in the case.

The 19-year-old was doused in flammable liquid and set on fire, burning her alive on a rural road in Courtland Dec. 6.

Alsanai said, “I’m cleared, but people still think I have something going on.”

Alsanai said he’s still receiving threats from people and that false accusations continue to come up on social media calling him a terrorist, saying he’s involved in a gang, telling him he was the leader, ect.

“To be honest with you, I wasn’t the only person that seen her. The accident happened three hours later.” Alsanai said, “And just to prove to everyone that I wasn’t really editing, I gave the police the camera system. They’ve had it almost a week and they still haven’t given it back. I’m just trying to prove myself. I really had nothing to do with it. I tried to help and in the end when I was trying to help, it just turned against me.”

Investigators confirm they are looking into several motives including a hate crime and possible gang related activity.  “Nothing is off the table at this point,” said Panola County District Attorney John Champion.  “There is no evidence to suggest it’s a hate crime or gang related; but who is to say that won’t change in the next five minutes.”

A reward for information leading to an arrest in the death of Chambers is available.  If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169.
