The Georgia Bureau of Investigation confirmed August 17 that the body found in a wooded area in Thompson on August 13 was a former Riverhead High School basketball player, Gabriel Jackson.

According to published reports, Jackson was a 2006 graduate of Riverhead High School, and played for the Blue Waves. He leaves a son, Gabriel III, his mother, JoAlice Hunt, a brother, Tylete Hardin, and partner Sha’Quasia Freeman, who is said to be pregnant with twins.
Southold Town Police said it was easy to spot Douglas Aloise, who was driving erratically in Cutchogue Friday night, August 17, shortly after 8 PM: he was going in the wrong direction. Furthermore, they said, after they attempted to pull the car over, he brought his vehicle to a halt only to start up again as they approached, and headed west on New Suffolk Street.
When the vehicle finally stopped, cops said they ascertained that Aloise had been drinking too much alcohol. He was charged with driving while intoxicated, operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol with a BAC at .08 percent, both misdemeanors, and two traffic violations. He will answer the charges in justice court next month.
