The man then killed himself. James Earl Jones, 32, has been in and out of treatment, taking different medication for years. His father told the police during an investigation that his son was turned away several times by LifeStream, a local behavioral treatment center, after they assessed his situation ... a few hours before Jones Jr. attacked his girlfriend. Shannon Ratliff, 42, called her mother for help later that day from their house because Jones, "he wouldn't let her out," according to her family. Her mother, 66-year-old Mavis Ratliff and 51-year-old brother, Eddie Ratliff, rushed to help, but were brutally attacked. Jones' girlfriend was found dead in the house with a massive open head wound. Her mother, later found lying on the ground outside the house was rushed to the hospital nearby, but passed away soon after, while her brother, remains in critical condition after surgery.
