Amber alert discontinued, Lancaster missing girl found dead

WFAA - According to WFAA in Dallas, Shavon Randle, the 13-year-old Lancaster girl was found dead late Saturday night. Her body was discovered inside an Oak Cliff home.

According to the FBI, Randle, and an adult male were both discovered deceased inside the home in the 2200 block of Kiest Avenue.

"We have positively identified the young female is Shavon Randle.  We have notified the family of this information and we’re in the process of continuing our investigation.” said Eric K. Jackson / FBI Special Agent in Charge.

On Friday, 24-year-old suspect Devontae Owens was arrested by the Lancaster Police Department and the FBI earlier Saturday. Owens is now being held on aggravated kidnapping charges in the Dallas County Jail.

An additional suspect, 30-year-old Laquon Wilkerson, previously not named, was identified and also arrested by the FBI and the Lancaster Police Department in connection with the case today.

Officials located 25-year-old LaPorschya Polley and 26-year-old Darius Fields, two of the four persons of interest who they have named in connection with the case on Friday. They were being questioned and remain in custody.

Authorities are still searching for 19-year-old Michael Titus.

“They are individuals that we believe may have information related to the kidnapping of Shavon,” said Eric Jackson, FBI special agent in charge, during a press conference Friday at Lancaster Police Department.

According to NBC DFW, Police said Wednesday she was taken from her home by an unknown man who they said later called a member of the girl's family.

"They confirmed that they knew who the victim was and they said, 'Well, we have her,'" Lancaster Police Department Det. Joseph Brickett said. "Then they called back later on the victim's cell phone and said, 'If you call law enforcement, then we'll harm her.'"

Investigators were able to trace Randle's cell phone location before it was turned off. They are still searching around those areas to find witnesses who saw the girl.

"It's hard when we don't have the answers," said Randle's aunt, Laura Roberts, who is also the family's pastor. "There's the 'why,' there's the 'how.' There are so many questions that are unanswered."
