Van Brisbon Biography
Who is Van Brisbon?
A woman was out of town when her boyfriend took her 16-year-old daughter captive inside a Texas home, according to local media reports. While she was holding her hostage, the girl called her mother, who then notified the teen’s 19-year-old sister, KTRK reported.
But when the sister showed up at the Humble house north of Houston, she couldn’t get in. The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says the sister called 911 to report the captive situation around 1 a.m. m. on April 29, according to a department news release.
Arrested and Charged
As officers arrived at the home and began to head toward the front door, they heard gunshots. Van Brisbon, 60, walked out the front door and was arrested, authorities said.
Do what you have to do,” Brisbon told deputies, according to KHOU. The 16-year-old girl was found dead inside of gunshot wounds, authorities say. The teen’s biological father identified her to KTRK as Lauren Juma, a sophomore at Nimitz High School in Houston. He says that she hoped to join the army or serve as a police officer after graduation.
“The suspect and victim were the only two people inside the residence at the time of the murder,” the sheriff’s office said. Brisbon was uncooperative after the arrest, authorities said, and a motive for the girl’s murder has not been determined. He has been charged with murder.
