Witness Believes Children Oblivious To Kidnapping

The cousin of the man accused of kidnapping three Lubbock children says he doesn't think the victims knew they were part of an alleged crime. 

Jasmine Bazan, Angel Contreras, and Lashawnda Theriac returned to Lubbock early Wednesday morning. Their accused kidnapper, 41-year-old Kenneth Wilcox, remains in an Oklahoma jail Wednesday night, awaiting extradition to back to Lubbock.

Family members tell NewsChannel 11 the three children arrived home at the Ponderosa Apartments with their mothers around 4 a.m. Wednesday.  Now, we're learning new details from Wilcox's cousin who discovered Theriac and Contreras at his camper late Monday night.

Terry Keaton says when he told the children authorities were looking for them, they broke down.  "After I told them they were kidnapped they started crying, because I guess they didn't know. They acted like they didn't know," Keaton said. 

NewsChannel 11 has also learned Child Protective Services is looking into the case. We know that CPS generally looks into acts of the family, but they cannot comment on specifics of this case.
