Update 09/19/2013–A criminal complaint has been filed against the suspects. Two have been named and two are still on the loose. Agents are also questioning the mother of Ayvani Perez hoping to shed some light on the situation that took place early Tuesday Morning.
Wildrego Jackson, a career criminal with a history, was taken into Federal custody after making an appearance in Fulton County Court.
According to the story on 11Alive News’ website, a neighbor who is also a law enforcement officer informed the FBI she noticed a Dodge Challenger parked outside her house and a small 4-door silver car backed up to the house across the street. Another witness heard screams and saw the (Dodge) Challenger speed away.
The ransom demands Ayvani’s family received came from a blocked number, and the demand was for money and drugs for the girl’s release. There were a total of 5 calls between the family and the suspects.
The FBI tracked down the phone’s owner, who said she gave it to Jackson one week before the kidnapping. Agents also learned she rented the Dodge Challenger for Jackson.
Even though Ayvani Perez is found safe, the two suspects in the sketches are considered armed and dangerous, and the hotline to call is (770) 477-3513 or call 911.
