Luluvioletta “Lulu” Bandera-Magret and Lilianais “Lily” Griffith were last seen before authorities say their mother, 44-year-old Tonya Bates, was found dead.

Bates’ body was found Sunday at the home she and Miles shared in Round Rock, north of Austin.

Miles and the girls were seen on surveillance video at a business in Trinidad on Saturday.

Officials say Miles’ criminal history is extensive. Tony Mancuso, the sheriff of Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana said Miles was arrested there at least seven times between 2006 and 2015.

“I know that one of the arrests was porn involving a juvenile. When we interviewed him for that it was a pretty disturbing interview,” said Mancuso.

The police chief of Sulphur, Louisiana, Lewis Coats, also weighed in saying Miles has a laundry list of charges his department has investigated.

“In 2015 we are investigating an alleged rape filed against him of a 13-14 year old female,” said Coats.

He says Miles moved to Texas during the investigation, but the case is still open.

    “Bates’ body was found Sunday at the home she and Miles shared in Round Rock, north of Austin.”

    “Miles” who? You introduce his name here before you even tell us who this Miles is.

    Man has news reporting hit rock bottom or what?

  2. Brad Morton says:

    Very poorly written story. The fourth paragraph mentions Miles, but nowhere in the article does it clearly identify him by full name.
