According to an arrest warrant for one of the kidnapping suspects, police believe that Randle was taken for ransom. Devontae Owens and Laquon Wilkerson are behind bars in Dallas, arrested last Saturday and charged with aggravated kidnapping. The warrant states that Randle was payback for a drug robbery.

Two additional suspects are in jail on drug charges.

A relative of Randle told authorities that her boyfriend stole a large amount of drugs last Monday. She then received a phone call from a man claiming that he had Randle. The suspects allegedly told the relative, “Give us our s*** back or we are going to kill her.”

An anonymous informant told FBI agents that the suspect on the phone was known as ‘Trey,’ later confirmed by officials to be Owens. The informant also explained that “a male stole his narcotics from Motel 6 and that he was going to kidnap a child to get his narcotics back.”

All of this corroborates the story that family members of Titus had been saying: “He robbed them, they retaliated.”
