A CBS13 source says her grandson is a sex offender and was already wanted for a parole violation. The source also says DeAvila fled when police located him at a park Tuesday, but was eventually captured by a canine officer.
Those who knew the woman well can’t believe her own grandson is accused of such a horrific crime.
“It’s such a tragic loss for everybody,” said Jernigan.
The woman’s identity has not yet been released.
