Triple homicide person of interest search

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

You can still see the crime scene tape on the dirt road off of Alabama 21 in Lowndes County.

The horrific scene of a triple homicide involving 9-year-old twins Taylor and Jordan DeJerinet of Montgomery and their 73-year-old caregiver Jac Mac Girdner.

Their bodies were discovered Tuesday night. They disappeared from Girdner's home on Lake Ridge Road in Hope Hull late Sunday night.

A statewide alert and search were launched for them and now agents are searching for  22-year-old Deandra Marquis Lee who agents believe may be connected with the deaths.

"Lee is considered armed and dangerous," Alabama Bureau of Investigation Sgt. Steve Jarrett said.

Lee is from Montgomery and is free on bond on unrelated felony charges in Dallas County.

Girdner's 1988 Mercedes was also reported missing. If it has been recovered is unknown. The cause of death is also unclear. Agents are releasing limited information.

"We're trying to get information out as quickly as possible, but our main priority is to not jeopardize the investigation," Sgt. Jarrett said.

There is still a lot of questions and speculation. If this person of interest has any relation to the mother or twins is unknown. WSFA 12 News Reporter Tametria Conner interviewed the mother Monday and she has since shied away from the media.

Law enforcement is trying to back track Lee's last known whereabouts. They went to his last known address on Thomas Avenue in Montgomery and places were he was arrested.

Selma Police Chief William Riley tells us the latest search was in Selma. Chief Riley says U.S. Marshals, Selma Police and other agencies were looking for him in that area because that was the location of his most recent arrest about four months ago on a gun charge.

Riley says that search started in the early afternoon and lasted several hours, wrapping up around 7, but it was unsuccessful. 

There is still an active search. The urgency now is getting Lee off the streets and in custody for questioning.

We will continue to bring updates as more information becomes available.

If you have any information on his whereabouts, please call ABI special agent Matt Bowman at (334) 242-1142 or your local law enforcement agency. If you wish to remain anonymous, call the crime tip line at 1-800-392-8011.
