3 indicted for deadly abduction of 13-year-old Shavon Randle
Posted August 25
Dallas, Texas — Three former persons of interest in the Shavon Randle kidnapping and murder case have been indicted for her deadly abduction.
Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson announced Thursday the indictments of 22-year-old Desmond Jones, 24-year-old Devonte Owens, and 30-year-old LaQuon Wilkerson for aggravated kidnapping. The charge is a first degree felony.
All three were named as persons of interest early in the investigation after Lancaster 13-year-old Shavon Randle was kidnapped June 28 over stolen drugs.
On August 15, Jones led police to Shavon's body, found shot to death in a house in East Oak Cliff, along with the body of another person of interest in the case, 19-year-old Michael Titus.
The Shavon Randle and Michael Titus murder cases remain open. "These indictments do not end our investigation into this tragedy," Johnson said. "We will continue to follow the evidence and will not stop until all those involved are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."
If convicted, Jones, Owens, and Wilkerson could face life in prison.
