Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NATIONAL -

DAL­LAS — A miss­ing 13-year-old North Texas girl who was re­ported ab­ducted and a man have both been found dead in­side a Dal­las home, au­thor­i­ties said Sun­day.

Shavon Ran­dle had been miss­ing for sev­eral days and was iden­ti­fied as one of two peo­ple dead in­side the house in Dal­las’ Oak Cliff area, said Eric Jack­son, spe­cial agent in charge of the Dal­las FBI. He said the in­ves­ti­ga­tion was con­tin­u­ing and had no other in­for­ma­tion about the deaths.

“We didn’t have the pos­i­tive re­sult we were look­ing for, but be­ing able to let Shavon’s fam­ily know that we’ve lo­cated her was our goal,” Jack­son said.

The girl was re­ported ab­ducted Wed­nes­day from a home in Lancaster, about 15 miles south of Dal­las.

Po­lice said a rel­a­tive told of­fi­cers she re­ceived a call from an un­known man who said the girl was be­ing held against her will and had threat­ened to harm her.

Lancaster po­lice and FBI agents ar­rested two men Satur­day, Devon­tae Owens, 24, and Laquon Wilk­er­son, 30, dur­ing their search for her. Both are held on $500,000 bond and charged with ag­gra­vated kid­nap­ping.

Au­thor­i­ties have said two other men are be­ing ques­tioned and an­other man was be­ing sought.
