A known member of the Texas Aryan Brotherhood, a racist prison gang, confessed in November 2007 to his involvement in the murder of two people in the Mesquite, Texas, area in August 2006.
Dale "Tiger" Jameton admitted that he beat and killed a methamphetamine dealer after the 43-year-old man disrupted drug transactions for Jameton and his fellow Texas Aryan Brotherhood members.
Jameton confessed that he rolled the victim in a tarp and fencing, tied cinderblocks to him, swam the still living man out to the center of a Trinity Rivers pond, slit his throat and left him to die. Police later found the body floating in the pond.
Jameton further admitted involvement in the killing of a woman believed to be the former girlfriend of the group's leader, Jason Hankins. The unidentified woman was allegedly sexually tortured, strangled, soaked with acid, placed in a plastic tub, immersed in cement, and dumped in Lake Ray Hubbard. The body has never been found.
Jameton did not say who actually killed the woman, but offered to provide the location of the body if authorities dropped all charges against his wife, Jennifer Lee McClellan, who is one of six co-defendants also charged in the two killings.
According to authorities, the other five co-defendants, including Hankins, are all members of the Texas Aryan Brotherhood, a large and violent racist prison gang based in Texas and surrounding states.
