Holli Jeffcoat Murder: Person of Interest Found, Sibling of Murdered Idalou Teen Removed From Home
The Lubbock County Sheriff's Office has confirmed it has a person of interest in the murder of Holli Jeffcoat. The 18-year-old special needs girl was found dead in her home with multiple stab wounds Wednesday (Feb. 10) morning.
Lubbock County Sheriff Kelly Rowe has said there is a person of interest in the case, but didn't identify who it was.
Bryan Taylor with the LSO earlier told media the crime was not random. Fire damage inside the home was an attempt to cover up the crime and any evidence, said Taylor.
Child Protective Services has also stepped in and removed Jeffcoat's 15-year-old sibling from the home. Details are sparse, but CPS has confirmed that the organization has had "prior involvement" with the family.
Jeffcoat's grandmother told Everything Lubbock that she would miss Holly dearly.
"Holli is such a sweet, sweet girl, I'll miss her like you can't imagine," she said, adding: "Holli didn't get to make it to graduation, it hurts so bad to think that someone would do something so mean to that beautiful girl. I mean, she was the most loveable child, everyone that met her fell in love with her."
No arrests have been made in the case.
