[Excerpts] A corrections officer is wanted for murder and a Rosenberg congregation is mourning the loss of two of their own. One by one, members of The Church of Living Waters in Rosenberg left Sunday service filled with grief. During the service they learned two members of the pastor’s family were murdered overnight. “We know that there was a cutting instrument that was involved. Both victims were stabbed,” said Lt. Colin Davidson from Rosenberg Police Department. Police say it all happened inside Pastor Gene and Betty Jo Frank’s home... The couple and their daughter were violently attacked while four grandchildren watched. Now the young children’s father, 44-year-old Albert Turner, who is also a Texas Department of Corrections jail guard is wanted for the murder of his wife, Keitha Frank Turner and the murder of his mother-in-law Betty Jo Frank. Just the thought that the suspect is still on the loose has some people in the Chestnut neighborhood terrified. At least three homeowners plan to leave their homes for a few days. Other neighbors are in disbelief... Turner could be on his way to Florida, where he is from. Authorities around the state are on the lookout for Turner’s car, a maroon Honda Accord with the license plate 494-JFY, and police say you be should too. “The violent crime scene that the police officers encountered, I haven’t seen anything like this since I’ve been here. I would definitely say armed and dangerous,” said Lt. Davidson. And while police are not discussing a motive neighbors say this time the violence went too far. “Supposedly he was abusive to her,” said Sparks. [Full article here]

[Excerpts] A multistate manhunt continues today for a Texas prison guard accused in the killings of his wife and mother-in-law, who were stabbed in front of children in Rosenberg earlier in the day, officials said.
Authorities are searching for 44-year-old Albert James Turner, who is charged in the deaths of 39-year-old Keitha Frank Turner and 66-year-old Betty Jo Frank, said Lt. Colin Davidson of the Rosenberg Police Department. The two women were the daughter and wife of prominent Rosenberg preacher Gene Frank of the Church of Living Waters, Davidson... Eyewitnesses, including a child who called 911, identified Turner as the killer, Davidson said, and the sound of children screaming can be heard in the background of the call. “The children did witness some of it, yes,” Davidson said... Turner fled the scene before police arrived... [Full article here]

[Excerpts] ...Investigators said 44-year-old Albert Turner is believed to be on the run, and that law enforcement agencies along Interstate 10 all the way to Florida are on alert. “He's armed. He's dangerous. He needs to be taken into custody,” said Lt. Colin Davidson, with the Rosenberg Police Department, of Turner. Police said Turner was staying with his in-laws, Gene and Betty Joe Frank, on Saturday night with his wife and children when something went awry... “When I heard parts of the tape, all I heard was screaming and digits being pushed on the phone,” said Davidson. Responding officers found 66-year-old Betty Jo Frank had been stabbed to death and her 39-year-old daughter, Keitha Turner, had also been stabbed. Keitha Turner later died at a nearby hospital. Police said the Turners' two children -- the oldest of which is 12 -- where in the home during the attack, and police said they, along with their grandfather, were still in the home when police arrived, but Albert Turner was gone... Albert Turner is wanted in connection with the slaying of his wife and mother-in-law, and said he may be driving a 1994 maroon Honda Accord with Texas license plate 494-JFY. Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is urged to contact authorities... “Betty Jo didn't talk about her family -- the negatives,” [family friend Carol] Hamrick said. “She only talked about positives.” The Franks are well-known for many positive contributions, including the founding of the Church of Living Waters in Rosenberg and the Living Water Christian School, where Keitha Turner taught.

  5. This happened within 2 miles of my home. My heart aches for this family, especially for these innocent children who have lost their mother and grandmother.

  6. How are people saying that he is a rapist? If you thought he was a rapist you should have reported him to the police. He wouldn't have allegedly committed these horrible murders if you would have. Don't speak up now. I worked with him for many, many years and no one has has spoke one negative thing about this man until now. If he did this he should be prosecuted accordingly but let's stick to the facts. I'm praying for him, the bereaved family and especially the beloved children.

  8. Shhh...

    you just blamed someone else for these heinous murders because you don't understand how this could happen.

    Cry. Pace. Take some flowers to the house and lay them on the steps.

    Pray. Write a song or a poem.

    Be good to the people in your life.

    Volunteer to help people in crisis...

  9. I did not blame the murders on anyone else. I just don't judge people. I'm going to let the criminal justice system and God take care of that. My prayers are with the Frank family, the children and my former co-worker. May God bless them.

  10. I will pray for the immeidate family and their friends who have lost these innocent loved ones. The only prayer I have for the piece of S**t is that he suffers to the exact same degree as those he killed. This Coward will not be taken alive because he will be afraid of his (soon to be) fellow convicts. He will either commit suicide or death by cop. Anyone who prays (other than for his immdiate capture or death) for this Piece of Scum is either in denial or is just a plain idiot. He ran away like the little Bi*ch he is and could not face up to it like a Man. Anyone who sympathizes with him is probably just like him on the inside, a low-life. How is that for the facts?

    May God give peace to both sides of this family, his family and hers. This will be difficult for the family, but may God use his grace and Love to bring their families together at this time of great loss. May God ascend upon this man and have him surrender himself and face the demons, and take responsibility for his action. Please pray for these families and for these four children.

    I am a CORRECTIONAL OFFICER.What happen that night had nothing to do with the fact that Turner worked as a CORRECTIONAL OFFICER.A person could be one way at work and totally different at home.I also have worked with Turner for many years.I never thought that he could do such a thing.My prayers are with the Frank-Turner family.My prayer for Turner please turn yourself in to the police, before it get worst.

  16. i am the son that lost his mom and the brother that lost his sister. I am praying that James is caught for the kids sake!

  17. I did not by ANY means sympathize with Turner. He was my coworker but I do not in any way take sides with him. My prayers are not limited to certain types of people and if that makes me a low life, then so be it. I also have close friends that are friends to the Frank family. And to the son, I'm praying for your family and that justice is sought for your mother and sister. God bless.

  18. This isn't about you and whether people think you are a low life. I don't think anyone does.

  20. May he not find death himself, that may seem to be a sweet end for him, but come to place to be tried by our legal system and not have parole. This will help bring closure for the young children and family members. God be a very present solace to the family.

  21. I give my condolences to the Frank family, the husband and the children. May God bless the souls of the wife and the daughter. Albert Turner I pray for you daily that you find peace. Please disregard the responses from all the SO CALL CHRISTIAN PEOPLE. I love you as a friend and a person. May God be with you. TT

  23. This "man" took away the mother of his children & Grandmother - in front of his children. Monster. The rape was reported to the police, name unknown. He had a knife throat & threatened kill, I believe the only reason that victim is am alive today, due to sirens that were going towards another scene, unfortunately,not hearing her screams. Drove down her st several weeks later in his honda, by chance? Again the police called & never pursued. Almost 2 years now since this, in about 2 days. Never thought I would wish someone not only dead, tortured, then sent to prison & then he wait for his death which I want to witness 1st hand. He ruined his children's lives forever. As this victim's. Hope the sob is caught soon,so maybe some peace will be found & no longer live in fear. I pray for his children to find some peace someday...

  24. I also, was hurt by this "man"... Lady from above.. What did you do to keep from being dead?? He left my ass for dead... I was found thankin the good lord above, by my boyfried and his son.. I live in Richmond, where do you live? What are the police saying?

  25. First, my heart goes out to each and every one of you that are victims of Turner's. I can't imagine the pain and fear you have had to endure. Anonymous above, I'm so thankful you were found by your boyfriend and his son. Thank you for posting. I truly believe that what you shared, will give others hope and strength. In reference to the rape victims, I too am asking, What are the police saying? There must be so much we don't know about this cold blooded, cruel animal. If there are any other victims, I pray they come forward and justice be served. As for you Turner, you can run but you can't hide. It's only a matter of time and you're going down......

  28. the end is near....one way or another this rapist killer wimp lived a lie for way too long fooling friends, family, and co-workers..a true wolf in sheep's clothing. He affected many other families lives before the ultimate sin...he is an evil, weak-minded, soul-less, coward who preyed on women. Wish I caught up with him in Atlanta or my old man would have in Concord.....think the powers that be sent him our way for a reckoning...it aint over yet. Still in NC...stranger things have happened. If anything that son of a b#tch punk will get brought out in prison before the ultimate flu shot..still wish they hung folks in Texas..or shot em but he aint worth the price of a bullet...ill be happy to help save the state the expense if need be. And if any of you b#tches that worked with and vouched for him your scum as well..you have somethin comin for you too.

  30. If you claim to be raped or know of a woman who has been raped by him then call the police who charged him and let them know of this alleged past. Maybe you will get some closure and can move on now that he is where he belongs.

  32. Keitha Frank Turner did not have college training to be a school principal ( such as a master's in education ). There are rumors of: her coming and going during school hours and always home late. TURNER'S OWN ATTORNEYS RESIST A DNA TEST ... of one of his children. There is allegations of a drug and prostitution arrests that disappeared. And of course (THIS IS FACT ladies and gentlemen), the DA for court 268 of Fort Bend is pushing for life without parole or the death penalty and threatening to grill his daughters on the stand in an attempt to supress a trial. How do I know ? ... I was his spade partner at the comedy college !!! How bout let's here the whole truth.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Then call a spade a spade and a cold blooded murder a murder! You putting a spin on the truth will not affect the outcome of a trial by jury although your ignorance believes it will.
    Listen to your own ignorant rants: Keitha not having a Master's Degree to be a Principal....NO... not justified to murder her for this; He's not getting his own lawyers to do a DNA test....NO... still not justifiable for him to murder her.
    Even if the lies you describe were true, it does not permit not one but TWO women to be butchered. How demented can you be to believe anything other than the facts......HE MURDERED 2 WOMEN!!!!!!!!
    Also if you would educate yourself beyond a Windham School District G.E.D.,(assuming you are that highly educated), you would realize the DA doesn't threaten to grill the kids on the stand, the murderer does that. The kids would be State witnesses. If the murderer pled guilty he could spare the children more of his torture and intimidation. He controls this part. DA's do not "grill" children on the stand. You should know that Defense's do, however, do this.
    Stop indulging this murderous maniac. If you are human then show the sympathy where it belongs....with 2 women that were murdered and 4 children who have neither parent because of this senseless act.

    I ATTEND CHURCH OF LIVING WATERS.. I PRAY FOR THE FRANK FAMILY... MR. TURNER LEFT HIS CHILDREN WITH A MEMORY THAT IS GOING TO LAST FOREVER IT WILL NOT GO AWAY. HE DID NOT GIVE KEITHA OR MRS. FRANK A CHANCE SO I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT HE NEEDS A CHANCE. HE TOOK THE LIFE OF TWO OF THE MOST WONDERFUL GODLY WOMEN THAT I KNOW. HE WAS A VERY RUDE MAN AND I ONLY MET HIM A COUPLE OF TIMES. BUT I PRAY THAT FOR ONCE OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM DOES WHAT IS RIGHT AND GIVE HIM DEATH. GOD SAYS WE SHOULD FORGIVE AND NOT JUDGE. HE IS FORGIVEN. NOT FORGOT. GOD BLESS THE FRANK FAMILY THAT THIS COMES TO A CLOSE SOON. I DONT BELIEVE HE SHOULD BE TREATED DIFFERENT BECAUSE HE WAS A CORRECTIONAL OFFICER.
