The Murder of Ryan Adam Moon

What does a family do when government officials close their eyes to a heinous, cold-blooded murder?  How far would a police department go to safeguard a confidential drug informant?  Would authorities intentionally railroad an innocent person to protect one of their own?

As two Odessa Regional Hospital ER nurses futilely attempted to save the life of Ryan Adam Moon, the stabbing victim gasped his final words, "It's bad.  It's bad, isn't it?  I can't breathe.  I can't breathe.  Terrance did it.  Terrance did it."

Incredibly, the Odessa Texas Police Department and Ector County District Attorney, Bobby Bland ignored the account of the dying man and the two impartial, respectable nurses.  Instead, they relied upon inconsistent and contradictory statements from drug using, gang affiliated thugs.  Two of these thugs  left the victim lying in the street to die to protect themselves from prison. 

Rather than being arrested and jailed, Terrance Louis Jackson, a 7-time convicted felon, alleged drug dealer and police informant, was the star witness in the murder trial of Christopher David Lyson.  A jury of twelve did not believe the illogical and conflicting testimony of Jackson and his band of cowards, nor does the victim’s family buy it. 

Ryan Adam Moon’s killer remains free.  He is free to sell drugs to our children, to terrorize innocent citizens, and free to kill again. 

Is this due to the negligence of an incompetent police force and District Attorney, or does a ruthless murderer carry on his life of crime with the blessing of those that swore on oath to protect and defend?   

Where do you turn when the justice system fails?  This is the story of my continuing fight for justice for my nephew, Ryan Adam Moon.     

Nehemiah 4:14

After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”

Our Challenge to Ector County DA Bobby Bland

District Attorney Bobby Bland was quoted in the Odessa American newspaper as saying;

"When your victim says somebody did it right before he died, even though he's under the influence of narcotics and is wounded, that's powerful evidence against you," Bland said. "But it wouldn't be enough to support a conviction (of Jackson). The only thing we have is a dead person's statement right before he died, which is contradicted by his own statement a few hours earlier and all the evidence at trial."

"We've not held anything back. The jury got to exam the whole case," Bland said. "We did all we could with the evidence we had. I think sometimes ... just the evidence fails."

.......he said investigators would need to discover a significant amount of new evidence to even think about bringing the case before a grand jury again.

Bland's quotes show his sentiments toward this case.  He is obviously biased and refuses to look at FACTS.  Instead, he chooses to whitewash the truth to fit his own scenario.  Isn't it his job to ensure the citizens of Ector County are safe?  Didn't he take an oath to administer justice professionally, fairly and efficiently? 

We challenge Mr. Bland to produce evidence that Adam ever said someone other than Terrance did it.  Prove he contradicted himself a few hours earlier.  Show us Adam was not coherent when he told two unbiased ER nurses who stabbed him.  He cannot because those ARE NOT the facts. 

We can prove that Jamayea Brockett said these things, NOT ADAM.  We can prove Jamayea Brockett lied.  Brockett should be prosecuted for aggrevated perjury.  Instead, she is the DA's star witness.

Click on the links on the left titled "Initial Police Interviews" and read the ER nurse's statements, Jamayea Brockett's handwritten witness statement, and Brockett's interview (her one and only with OPD that lasted for less than ten minutes) with Det. Shelly Stanford. 

The link titled "Hospital ER Records" proves that before Adam died, Brockett said ADAM WAS ARGUING WITH A FRIEND WHO STABBED HIM.  OPD's own reports prove Terrance Jackson was Brockett's FRIEND and Christopher Lyson was a complete stranger.

Brockett's interview with Det. Stanford proves SHE SAID ADAM TOLD HER the "white dude" stabbed him.  Adam said, "Terrance did it," and no one else.   

Why would Brockett tell the ER that her friend stabbed Adam if she had just witnessed a stranger stab him?  Why would she later tell police that Adam told her the stranger did it?  It doesn't make sense, does it, Mr. Bland?  Was she protecting her friend?  Did he threaten her?

The ER nurses statements prove Adam was coherent enough to know he had been at Terrance's house on Bunche St.  They prove he told TWO ER nurses that Terrance stabbed him. 

Why would Adam tell Brockett the white dude stabbed him, but tell two different ER nurses that Terrance did it?  It doesn't make sense, does it, Mr. Bland?  Why didn't you ask the nurses if Adam was coherent?  Why did you only ask their names and to verify they wrote the statements?  Why do you believe Brockett and Jackson over the nurses?           

Below are facts taken directly from evidence that all point to Terrance Louis Jackson as the killer.       

(1) Adam was fighting with Jackson.  (2) Adam named Jackson as the killer.  (3) Jackson was the only suspect  with blood on his clothing.  (4) Brockett told the hospital that a friend (Jackson) stabbed Adam.  (5) Brockett’s conflicting account that Adam told her the white dude stabbed him.  (6) Jackson got up and ran, and sped away from the scene of a murder.  (7) Jackson was hiding under the covers when Midland PD arrived.  (8) There was a knife hidden in the door panel of the car where Jackson was sitting.  (9) Jackson lied to police and told them he did not know Adam had been stabbed.  (10)  Jackson recanted his story, that he did not see blood.  (11) Jackson rehearsed his story.  (12) Jackson did not look remorseful.  (13) The appearance that Jackson’s mother and brother attempted to hide him from police. 

Mr. Bland stated the evidence failed.  Mr. Bland failed, not the evidence.  The evidence is there if he should chose to accept it.  He has more than enough to get a grand jury indictment, if only he wanted to.


Adam's killer is not an intelligent individual that planned to commit the perfect crime, the kind you see on television that always get caught.  He is a young, uneducated, drug using, drug dealing thug that killed on impulse.  Incredibly, Adam even told us his name.  Adam said Terrance Jackson stabbed him.  I cannot imagine this murder cannot be solved.

We challenge you, Mr. Bland, do what you swore on oath to do.  Get this killer off the streets.

$5000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of Adam's killer.

One thing I know for sure is that every criminal talks. This killer has bragged to someone that he has gotten away with murder. Maybe it was someone he is in jail with, or one of his buddies? Maybe he told someone who told somebody else? Maybe someone heard or saw something that seems suspicious. Whatever the case, no matter how small it may seem, we need to hear from you.   Please see the links to Adam's story on the left side of this page.  If you have any information at all please email, call Odessa Crime Stoppers at 432 333-TIPS, or submit a tip online at   

It's Time To Stand Up and Be Heard

I was watching the news a few months ago and they ran a story of a man who was arrested for murder four years after a young woman disappeared. The story talked about how the persistence of the woman's mother led to the arrest of her daughter's killer.

Last week a small child's body was found. A stranger created a Facebook page to bring attention to the story in hopes of identying the child. I knew then it was time for me to stand up and do something to bring my nephew's killer to justice.

I know this story may seem far-fetched to some, but I assure you, it is not. I am not one to believe in conspiracy theories, and I do not think that is the case here. I do believe there are a few bad cops preventing justice from being served. Informing for the police should not give one a free pass to murder.

Title: Hosanna

I see the King of glory
Coming on the clouds with fire
The whole earth shakes
The whole earth shakes
I see His love and mercy
Washing over all our sin
The people sing
The people sing

Hosanna in the Highest

I see a generation
Rising up to take their place
With selfless faith
With selfless faith
I see a near revival
Stirring as we pray and seek
We're on our knees
We're on our knees

Hosanna in the Highest

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like You
Have loved me
Break my heart for what breaks Yours
Everything I am for Your Kingdom's cause
As I walk from earth into eternity

Hosanna in the Highest
