Tiequon "Lil Fee" Cox (born Tiequon Aundray Cox, on December 1, 1965) is one of America's most known prison inmates.

He became one of the prime suspects of a quadruple homicide investigation concerning the deaths of Ebora Alexander, aged 59, Dietra Alexander, aged 25, two boys Damon Bonner, aged 6, and Damani Garner-Alexander, aged 12. These four individuals were relatives of former NFL player and defensive back Kermit Alexander. Cox was also a noted member of the Rollin' 60, one of the many sets affiliated to the Crips, and actually still on parole on an unrelated charge.

Murders & Possible Motives

The events that occurred on August 31, 1984, are not clear, but what is known is that two suspects, described as being male, were seen bursting into the house of Miss Ebora Alexander (the mother of Kermit Alexander) and opening fire, killing four people in the process. Two other family members who had previously been hiding, managed to scare off the gunmen, who were seen fleeing into a brown or maroon van.

Later the two suspects would be caught and identified as Tiequon Cox, aged 18, and later a man Horace Edwin Burns, aged 20. Both were known affiliates of the Rollin' 60. Burns was not one of the gunman it would turn out, but a look-out, along with two women Lisa Brown and Ida Moore, who drove the get-away vehicle. Darren Charles Williams would later be caught and identified as the other gunman.

The reason behind the killings, was revealed to be due to the fact that Darren Williams, another suspect who was also a noted gang member, had purchased fake cocaine and sought revenge against the dealer.

Unfortunately, Williams and the two other men ended up at the wrong house, resulting in the deaths of four innocent bystanders. It was actually stated that the three suspects had the right house number but were on the wrong block. Although Cox was the youngest of the three, and was therefore susceptible to "peer pressure", the jury's decision was that he had actively taken part in the killings, whether it had been just abetting was determined serious enough to condemn.

In 1986, he was found guilty of four counts of 1st degree murder, in accordance with premeditation laws, in the state of California. The jury further determined that he should be sentenced to death, placing him on death row.

Related Information

Tiequon Cox while on death row stabbed the late Stanley "Tookie" Williams in 1988. This is depicted in the 2004 TV film Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story.

On the afternoon of July 18, 2000, three inmates, regarded as some of San Quentin's most dangerous prisoners, almost escaped. The three, identified as Tiequon Cox, Paul Tuilaepa, and Noel Jackson, all rushed towards a hole that had been unraveled from a four foot section of a chain-link fence, nearly escaping with the intent of securing themselves hostages.

However, the attempt failed and with some difficulty the guards managed to get all three inmates subdued and back into a controlled yard. But, the escape attempt left many guards re-addressing the serious security problems that had been plaguing San Quentin for years.

References in Literature

Several references are made about Cox and the 1984 murders he was suspected of and subsequently incarcerated for, in Leon Bing's Do or Die, a book documenting the lives of at-risk youth in late '80's inner city Los Angeles. This incident is also mentioned in the book "Monster; A Biography of an L.A. Gang Member" written by Kody "Monster" Scott, a member of the Eight Trey Gangsta Crips in L.A.
