During the investigation detectives learned that Owens gave the victim an iPhone so she could communicate with her. The victim stated to detectives that Owens told her to keep the phone hidden from her parents and threatened to “make the victim’s family disappear” if she did not take the cell phone.

Detectives also learned that Owens gave the victim a charm bracelet with “love momma” engraved on the charm. After further investigation it was revealed that between February and July, 2016, there was approximately 12,200 text messages and 650 phone calls between Owens and the victim. Some of the messages included inappropriate sexual language, as well as multiple texts implying Owens had been driving by the girl’s home and stalking her.
