The death of a 13-year-old Texas girl who was kidnapped and killed because of a drug theft involving one of her relatives, has a community reeling.
An Amber Alert was issued for Shavon Le’Feye Randle of Lancaster, Texas, on Wednesday. On Sunday, Shavon was found dead in an abandoned home along with 19-year-old Michael Titus, who had been named as a person of interest in the teen’s disappearance.
The outlet reports that two days before the girl was kidnapped, the boyfriend of Ledoris Randle, Kendall Perkins, stole a large quantity of drugs from Darius Fields and Devontae Owens at a motel. Ledoris is a relative of Shavon’s.
Also, cellphone analysis placed Owens near Shavon’s home and had the two cellphones heading in the same direction until Shavon’s phone was shut off.
Owens, Fields, Titus and a woman named Laporshya Polley were named persons as of interest in the case almost immediately.
No one has yet been charged in Shavon’s death.
