Missing 13-Year-Old Girl Found Dead Inside Texas Home

FBI investigators working at outside the East Oak Cliff home where 13-year-old Shavon Randle was found dead after being kidnapped.

25-year-old Laporshya Polley and 26-year-old Darius Fields helped investigators and Lancaster police.

According to her family, she lived with her parents in Lancaster - about 15 miles south of Dallas - but stayed over at a relative's to look after a disabled cousin.

Lancaster police then issued an Amber Alert after receiving the missing person call. CBS DFW identified the man found dead as 19-year-old Michael Titus, who had been a person of interest sought in connection to her kidnapping.

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.

Titus' mother said she immediately contacted the police and gave them the text messages.

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.

The family got together to pray Thursday evening outside the Lancaster home from which Shavon was kidnapped Wednesday morning. According to local station CBS 11, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said they received "significant information" to look specifically at the home where the bodies were found.

Police said Wednesday she left her home with an unknown man whom identified later as a member of the girl's family. "Like I said, she's innocent".

Police said the family has been notified of her death as the investigation continues. "If he was responsible for this, he would not be dead".

"Anyone we find that was involved in this heinous crime against Shavon, we will bring you to justice", said Jackson.

The other three named as a person of interest, along with a fourth person, were arrested Saturday.

Laquon Wilkerson, 30, has also been charged with aggravated kidnapping; however, his exact involvement is unclear at this time.

Fields and Polley were questioned by police the following day before arrested on unrelated drug charges, the Star-Telegram reported.
