This hit me hard; due to the horrific nature of what this girl went through, due to the lack of attention or concern at least from what I saw… Maybe because I was getting alerts while she was still alive & feel I should have been able to do more than tweet and share random stupid posts about what was going on.
The search for the Lancaster girl, who was the subject of an Amber Alert, came to a heartbreaking conclusion. Her body was discovered inside an east Oak Cliff home late Saturday night.
Shavon Randle, 13 year old Black female… Her body was found along with her 19 year old kidnapper. She was being held ransom over drugs. As stated by local reporters:
” Perkins girlfriend is identified as Ledoris Randle, a relative of Shavon. Randle told police that she received a call at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday from a private number and the voice on the other end said they had Shavon and warned if she called the police, the 7th grader would be killed.
The arrest affidavit says a co-worker of Ledoris Randle confided to her that one of the men that had the narcotics stolen was Fields and that “Fields has history with kidnapping people.”
An anonymous informant told the FBI the a male she knew advised “he was going to kidnap a child to get his narcotics back”, according to the affidavit. The male is identified as Owens. “
Why would anyone involve a child…!? I know this happens far too often; innocent kids victim of stray bullets or other horrors they shouldn’t be anywhere close to. And that’s sickening but they targeted and picked this child all over… drugs? I don’t know what to say other than…
May your new journey, Shavon Randle, be peaceful and full of love… you deserve no less…
