HOUSTON – A 19-year-old Montgomery County man who allegedly beat his 17-year-old sister to death Tuesday was out on bond at the time of the killing, investigators said.
Deputies said Jordan Boijseauneau was locked up in May of 2012 on charges of sexual abuse of a child over 14, and during his time behind bars, he attempted suicide.
Further details about the child-sex case were not immediately available.
But Boijseauneau’s latest brush with the law came Tuesday afternoon, when deputies were called to his family’s home on Marshburn Road in far west Montgomery County.
When they arrived, they found a gruesome scene.
Boijseauneau’s 17-year-old sister, Stephanie, was found dead in the front doorway. Investigators believe she’d been beaten over the head with an unknown object.
Jordan’s 15-year-old girlfriend led authorities to the home. Investigators said she’d been restrained with duct tape in a back bedroom, but managed to escape and call 911.
"The 15-year-old that was here has been very vague on what transpired prior to this occurring," said Lt. Bill Bucks with Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. "I’m under the impression she has a better idea of what she has told us to this point."
Investigators now believe the whole thing started as an argument between to Boijseauneau siblings and escalated from there.
Deputies said they found Jordan underneath some clothes in a closet. They said he apparently stabbed himself in the chest with a knife, and was taken to the hospital in critical, but stable condition.
Investigators said there were no previous family violence calls to the Boijseauneau home, and neighbors said the family – who had lived in the area for a long time – never seemed to have any problems.
"She was awesome. She was quiet. She was not a bad girl," friend Norma Veneros said of Stephanie Boijseauneau. "It hurts. We didn’t think it was going to happen like this, but for some reason it happened."
