    There are still many questions in the tragic death of 13-year-old Shavon Randle. The Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office has not determined how the girl died after she was kidnapped. And as of Tuesday afternoon, no one has been charged with murder. (Published Tuesday, July 4, 2017)

    On a day when many celebrated our country's independence, community members continued to pay tribute outside the home where the bodies of Shavon Randle, 13, and Michael Titus, 19 were discovered Sunday.

    Devontae Owens and Laquon Wilkerson are facing aggravated kidnapping charges. Four others, including Desmond Jones, remain in police custody on various other charges. Investigators say Jones led them to the vacant home where the bodies were found.

    Although police have made several arrests in the case, no one has been charged with the deaths.

    "We want justice, we all want justice for Shavon," said Laytoya Washington, who brought her children to the crime scene to pay their respects.

    "I would like justice for this precious baby and Mike T, he's a victim as well," she said.

    "It's very frustrating. I'm wondering what's going on. Why haven't they pressed charges? These people need to be brought to justice," said Candy Samuel, another person who stopped by the home Tuesday.

    The Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office says Titus was shot in the head, and his death has been ruled a homicide. The autopsy on Randle has not been completed.
