911 caller describes killing mother, younger sister

(Continued)

ANNETTA SOUTH, Texas —

Evans told the dispatcher he wasn't angry with his mother or sister. "It just kind of happened," he said. 'I had been kind of planning on killing for a while now.”

Evans lived with his younger sister and parents in an upscale, gated neighborhood, where the family purchased a home in 2000. He told the dispatcher his father was in Washington, D.C. on business.

An older sister was away at college and was supposed to visit the following day. Evans said his grandparents and the oldest of his three sisters lived across the street.

The community west of Fort Worth was left reeling.

The Evanses recently began attending Holy Redeemer Catholic Parish, said Jan Hudler, who knew Jami Evans for seven years. “This was not a family this should have happened to,” said Hudler.



Jami Evans was a former elementary school teacher and assistant principal between 1989 and 2004, according to Dan Manning, superintendent of the Aledo Independent School District. She worked as a substitute teacher beginning in 2007.

Jake and Mallory Evans recently attended schools in the district, as well. Jake Evans was withdrawn from Aledo High School in January to home school, said Manning, adding that his sister also withdrew at some point.

“This is really difficult for a lot of the staff,” he said. “This is a family that has been here for a long time."
