911 caller describes killing mother, younger sister

ANNETTA SOUTH, Texas — A teenager in an upscale Fort Worth suburb told a 911 dispatcher he didn't want his mother or younger sister to "feel any pain" when he killed them last week, according to a tape of the call.

“I just thought it would be quick, you know,” said the caller identifying himself as Jake Evans, 17. “I didn’t want them to feel any pain. That’s why I used a gun, but it was like everything went wrong.”

The Parker County sheriff said Evans murdered his mother and younger sister, then called 911 about 12:30 a.m., Thursday. His voice calm, the caller described the slayings in detail to a dispatcher during 25 minutes before deputies arrived.

Evans was told to turn on a porch light and walk out of his house with raised hands, said Sheriff Larry Fowler. He was arrested without incident.

Deputies discovered the bodies of Jami Evans, 48, and Mallory Evans, 15, and a .22-caliber revolver on the kitchen table, Fowler said.

In a 911 tape, the caller identifying himself as Evans tells how he lured his sister from her room:

“See, my sister, I told my sister that my mom needed her. She was in her room, and she came out of her room, and I, uh, I, I shot her. She rolled down the stairs, and I shot her again. And then I went down, and I shot my mom about maybe three or four times."

Evans said he would never forget his sister's screams. He told her to hold still; he was going to make it go away. “But, finally she fell down and I shot her in the head, about probably three times,” he said.

Fowler said he isn't sure why Evans shot his mother and sister. There was no history or mental illness, drugs or alcohol, and the family seemed stable and well respected.
