Dallas FBI investigators confirmed early Sunday that missing 13-year-old Shavon Randle was found dead inside a home in Dallas.
Shavon Randle of Lancaster went missing Wednesday and was at the center of an Amber Alert.
Eric Jackson, special agent for the Dallas FBI office, said in a live Facebook video posted by the City of Lancaster, that officers had found two corpses in a home in Dallas Sunday morning. The bodies belonged to young Randle and an unidentified man.
Officers headed to a home in the 2200 block of Kiest Boulevard just before 3 a.m.
Lancaster Police and FBI agents arrested two suspects on Saturday in connection with Shavon Le’Faye Randle’s absence.
Police are still searching for Michael Titus, who is a suspect related to Randle’s disappearance.
25-year-old Laporshya Polley and 26-year-old Darius Fields helped investigators and Lancaster police. The FBI says the public helped investigators find them.
Police said Wednesday she left her home with an unknown man whom identified later as 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.’”
Brickett said investigators managed to trace Randle’s cell phone location for a while before it was switched off.
“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.”
The family got together to pray Thursday evening outside the Lancaster home from which Shavon was kidnapped Wednesday morning.
“I don’t see why anyone would take her,” said Jessie Randle, another aunt. “She’s just bubbly. A lot of joy.”
