22-Year-Old Jan. 6 Defendant Dead Less than 1 Month After Arrest

Published on

In relation to the January 6 Capitol incursion, he was detained and charged with four misdemeanors less than a month ago.

Nejourde Thomas “Jord” Meacham passed away on Monday.

Ryan J. Reilly, author of “Sedition Hunters: How January 6th Broke the Justice System,” reported on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, that Meacham’s death was confirmed by a court filing citing a police report.

For apparent reasons, prosecutors sought to abate the case, a common-law doctrine that effectively dismisses the case as if the defendant had never been indicted.

Reilly stated in a separate post on X that Meacham had been charged with only misdemeanors and could have pled down to probation, although it is impossible to predict how Meacham’s case would have concluded.

The cause of Meacham’s demise was not readily apparent.

“Jord worked on the family’s ranch, and enjoyed riding horses, hunting, fishing, and doing anything outdoors,” his obituary read. “He was a big history buff and was a good cook — soup being his specialty.

“Listening to music was a big part of his life and young kids were drawn to him. He spent the summers working at Leader Creek Fisheries in Naknek, Alaska and cherished the time he spent there and the many friendships that he made.”

Additionally, the obituary stated that Meacham’s funeral would be conducted on Saturday in Roosevelt, Utah, and that his corpse would be interred in a family cemetery in his hometown of Pleasant Valley.

Here, visitors can send flowers through the website of the funeral home.

The Associated Press reported this week that Proud Boys member Dominc Pezzola received a 10-year sentence for his role in the January 6 Capitol invasion.

The 46-year-old stated, “There is no place in my future for groups or politics whatsoever.”

However, as he exited the courtroom later, he raised his fist and exclaimed, “Trump won!”
