For the first time since Timothy Ray Jones confessed to murdering them, photos of his 5 children have been released. Their 5 smiling faces are heartbreaking to look at knowing their lives have been ended.
Three days after the mother of 32-year-old Timothy Ray Jones‘ five children reported her children missing, he confessed to taking their lives and dumping their bodies on a dirt road somewhere in Alabama. Now, the five children — three boys and two girls, ages ranging from 1 to 8 — have been revealed in a series of sad family photos that shows they were once full of life.
Timothy Ray Jones’ 5 Children Revealed In New Family Photos
These new pictures of the 5 children who were allegedly murdered by their own father will fill you with sadness.
In the handout photos, all five children are flashing huge, toothy grins — showing that once upon a time, their innocent lives were filled with the silliness every child should be experiencing.
The children reportedly range from ages 1 to 8, and you can see that the eldest is a boy with short blonde hair on the bottom left of the handout photo.
Then, there are two brown-haired children — a boy and a girl — in the center who appear to be about the same age. The little girl looks as if she was laughing when the photo was taken, most likely because she is missing one of her two front teeth.
At the top right you have a sweet-looking toddler boy who looks as if he has the same beautiful blonde hair as his older brother.
Last but not least, and quite possibly one the most heart-wrenching photo, is a baby girl wearing a pink onesie and smiling as she sits one what appears to be an outdoor patio. Much like her sister, the baby girl seems to be laughing in her photo as she shows off her baby teeth with an open-mouthed smile.
All five children were under joint custody of their parents, however, it was their father who was their legal guardian. That is why when their mother reported them missing from their South Carolina home on Sept. 3 an Amber Alert was not issued.
Timothy was arrested three days later on Sept. 6 in Mississippi during a routine traffic stop in which he was reportedly under the influence, reports the Daily Mail. It was after that arrest that Timothy confessed to his horrific crime, revealing that he had killed his 5 children and dumped their bodies on a dirt road in Alabama.
Unfortunately, Timothy has yet to reveal his motive for his heinous actions.
Our thoughts go out to the children’s mother and the remaining members of their family during this extremely difficult time.
