Detectives with the Beaumont Police Department have worked tirelessly on the Capital Murder investigation of Kera Teel and her baby, Kyndal, since June 6, 2017.
During the course of the investigation detectives had to sort through many leads given by individuals who were involved in or pretended to have knowledge of the crime.
Attayana Douglas was interviewed by investigators with her attorney present and gave false information that led to her arrest. She was charged with three counts of Aggravated Robbery, June 13, 2017. She gave false information about her involvement and Jared Bias’ involvement in the Captial Murder Deaths.
Detectives continued to investigate and the evidence revealed that several juveniles are responsible for the Capital Murder Death of Kera and Kyndal Teel. All of the suspects are identified and in custody on other charges at this time. The suspects are juveniles and their names cannot be released, pending certification as adults, at which time they will be formally charged with the Capital Murder of Kera and Kyndal Teel. At the request of Detectives, the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office dropped the Capital Murder Charges against Jared Bias, however he still faces several charges stemming from other criminal acts.
Tuesday, November 28, 2017 Attayana Douglas, was released from Jefferson County jail. There was not enough evidence to hold her on the three Aggravated Robbery charges. There may be other charges pending.
This has been a very complex case. The Beaumont Police Department is confident that those involved in Kera and Kyndal Teel’s death will be held responsible.
