    GA - Three adults & baby slain, 3 kids abducted, Gordon Co., 7 Jan 2004

    Four Killed, Three Children Abducted In Georgia

    POSTED: 10:27 a.m. EST January 8, 2004
    UPDATED: 11:07 a.m. EST January 8, 2004

    RANGER, Ga. -- Authorities in northwest Georgia are looking for a man believed to have killed four people in Gordon County, Ga., and to have abducted three girls, including two of his own.


    A spokesman for the sheriff's department -- Clent Harris -- says authorities have issued a murder warrant for 31-year-old Jerry William Jones, (pictured, left). He is believed to be traveling with the three girls in a 1991 Ford Explorer that is either red or maroon. It has a Georgia licence plate of 730 YFV.

    The girls are identified as his daughters, 4-year-old Brandy Jones and 3-year-old Tammy Jones and another girl, 10-year-old Brittney Phelps.

    Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Vicki Metz says the four people found dead are believed to have been killed between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Wednesday.

    She says authorities are not certain when the girls were taken. Investigators discovered the children were missing while they were investigating the killings.

    Authorities have not released the names of the dead. CNN reported that one of the dead was a 10-month-old baby.

    The sheriff's department and the GBI issued the Amber Alert, known as Levi's Call in Georgia, at 8:30 a.m. Thursday.

    I just got back from dropping my kids off at school and came back to see this at CNN. It hits home how truly awful humans can be. I'm just sick thinking about the terror those three little girls must be suffering. I'm praying for them. Every minute that goes by and they are still in danger must be an eternity for them. I had hope he wouldn't hurt them as they are children and the younger two are even his own until I read that there was a 10 month old found dead in the house.

    Son of a B*tch. Catch him and hang him!

    MSNBC reported that the 10 month old was the perp's own baby. And that he called his wife yesterday, told her he had killed 4 people, that if she told police, he would start killing the children with him, one by one. Sicko. I hope they catch him soon.

    I read on one of the stories that the 10 year old was a former stepdaughter, a child his exwife had from a previous relationship.
    This is so awful.
    If the Mother is in another state, who and why did he kill the other Three Adults, and then to kill your own baby.
    This is so sad.

    Updated: 12:35 p.m. ET Jan. 08, 2004RANGER, Ga. - Three adults and a 10-month-old baby were found shot to death early Thursday in two homes in rural Georgia, and three young girls were missing and feared kidnapped by the suspected killer, authorities said.

    Gordon County Sheriff’s spokesman Clent Harris said an arrest warrant for suspicion of murder had been issued for Jerry William Jones, 31, identified as the father of two of the missing girls and former stepfather of the third.

    Authorities said they believe Jones took all three girls and that the children are in danger.

    The murder scenes at the two homes in Ranger, Ga., 55 miles north of Atlanta, showed that the killer was “very methodical,” Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman John Bankhead said.

    ‘This wasn’t quick’
    ”This wasn’t quick. He clearly took his time,” Bankhead said.

    A man and a woman were found dead at one home, and a woman and an infant girl were slain at the other home, Bankhead said. It wasn’t clear where the kidnapped girls had been staying. Their mother, who authorities say was divorced from the Jones, was in Oregon at the time.

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution quoted Jones’ former brother-in-law as saying that the victims were his in-laws, Tom and Nola Blaylock, one of their adult daughters, Georgia Bradley, and Jones’ own infant daughter, Harley.

    David O’Donnell told the newspaper that Jones was divorced from Melissa Peeler, the mother of the missing girls and Harley. Peeler was visiting her boyfriend in Oregon and her parents and sister were caring for the children.

    After Wednesday’s killings, O’Donnell said, Jones called Peeler in Elliott, Ore., and told her that if she went to authorities, he would “start killing the kids one by one.”

    On MSNBC Jones brother in law stated this all began after there had been a child custody dispute and his children had been given by the courts to another couple (in laws, I believe). That is when he killed that couple and another of their family members.

    This is just awful. The GBI is very competant (SP?) though so hopefully they will find this guy before the children are hurt.

    Thanks BlueHawaii for that info, I had to leave during the news conference. Turbo, I'm thinking about what those children saw as he slaughtered members of their family and now they're trapped on the run with him. It's too horrifying.

    I guess I just don't get why he killed one of his own children but took the other 2 and the step daughter.

    Maybe b/c a 10 month old whines and needs to be fed and changed? That is sick but I can't think of anyother reason. No wonder the court didn't give him custody of his children........

    This will be very hard on the children and hopefully they will receive counseling on how to deal with those images and what they have been through.

    I also just wanted to say that I have the utmost respect for the GBI and the way that (most) of the Georgia police agencies conduct themselves. I use to live there and there are quite a few cases where they just didn't give up until they had the right person.

    "Jerry William Jones had been in the county jail before, primarily for minor traffic charges, Gordon County Sheriff Jerry Davis said.

    "We've had him in our jail and we're fixing to put him back in our jail. We're gonna put him back on the chain gang he was on," Davis said."

    Vehicle possibly spotted in Louisiana

    Don't know how many of you are from Louisiana/Arkansas/Texas area, but the vehicle has possibly been spotted. Keep those eyes open.

    Can't figure out why the LSP are "considering" issuing a Statewide Amber Alert--wouldn't you think they'd want to take every possible step to get those babies into safe hands, and back down later if it is discovered the vehicle has already crossed a state border?
