A 16-year-old girl who lost three generations of her family in the worst shooting spree in modern Alabama history is being held at a guarded location and is not in contact with her relatives.
Relatives of 16-year-old Janice Ball of Rutledge said they have not seen her since authorities brought her to the funeral service for her parents, three brothers and grandmother on September 4th.
At the funeral, she was not allowed to talk at length with relatives, and officials whisked her away when the interment ended.
Family spokesman Coleman Ball, who is Janice Ball's uncle, said relatives still doesn't know a motive for the killings at the family's small farm, 40 miles south of Montgomery. They are also unsure what is happening with Janice Ball or exactly where she is being kept.
Janice Ball's boyfriend, 22-year-old Westley Devone Harris, is
charged with six counts of capital murder and is being held without
bond in the Crenshaw County Jail in Luverne.
