Woman Wants Assault Suspect Located

Debrann Favre is pleading for the public's help in finding the man who assaulted her husband.

An ongoing dispute about loud noises, escalated to a violent confrontation between neighbors. The incident left Gilbert Favre in the hospital and his assailant on the loose.

It happened a week ago at the FEMA trailer park off Lamey Bridge Road in D'Iberville. Debrann Favre was spending last weekend away from the trailer, caring for her disabled mother. She returned on Sunday to a nightmare that began as a complaint about a noisy neighbor.

Debrann Favre knew immediately something was terribly wrong.

"The door was unlocked. The TV was running. His cigarettes were there. His cell phone was there. I knew something was wrong," she said.

She quickly discovered her husband was in the hospital, assaulted by a next door neighbor in their FEMA trailer park.

"From what I have been told by the detective and a witness, he stepped on this pod here and knocked on the door. Chris came to the door and Gilbert said something about the noise and everything. And Chris goes something like, 'Look man, I'm not going to talk about this now.' And Gilbert said, 'No, we are going to talk about it.'"

What followed, according to a witness, was the neighbor "sucker punching" her husband.

"He hit Gilbert in this jaw and that broke the jaw. And he hit him again, and that caused a blood clot," she explained.

The dispute over noise was ongoing. With the close proximity of neighboring trailers, loud noise doesn't have far to carry.

"Music turned up. And they would stand, congregate out here and talk loud, and then get into arguments. Then they'd start drinking and it would escalate from there. You can kind of take it from there," she said.

"See, of course our bedroom is right there. And they'd be right here, and like I said, Gilbert would get up at 5:00 or 5:30 to go to work. And he wasn't getting any rest."

Christopher Michael Jones is the neighbor wanted for aggravated assault. He's six foot one, 240 pounds and has a history of misdemeanor arrests that include drug possession, DUIs and domestic violence.

The Favres' moved into their FEMA trailer this past December. Since then, she's heard the reports of concerns about crime in FEMA trailer parks, but still never imagined a dispute over loud noises could escalate to this.

"Help me find this man who did this. Please! Please!"

Anyone who sees the suspect should call the Harrison County Sheriff's Department or their local police. The victim, Gilbert Favre, remains in the intensive care unit of Biloxi Regional Medical Center.
