Child Kidnapping: Amy McNeil was kidnapped on her way to school by 5 adults; Rescued safely during gunfire with the suspects and Texas Rangers

kidnap-and-ransomFrom Michael Mills’ appeal: The evidence indicates that a meeting was held at the home of James Foote on January 9, 1985. Mills was present at the meeting as were Lisa Bouvier, James Foote, Daniel Necker and George Thomas Mars. The discussion at the meeting centered on the commission of a crime in order to obtain a large sum of money. Foote suggested kidnapping Amy McNeil, a girl he knew who lived in Alvarado. On January 10, 1985, Bouvier, Foote and Necker traveled to Alvarado to look at the McNeil home. They returned to meet with the others on the same day.

On the morning of January 11, 1985, Mark McNeil and his sister Amy were on their way to school when their vehicle was forced off the road by three masked men. One of the men placed a shotgun to Mark’s head while the other two forceably removed Amy from the vehicle and placed her on the rear floorboard of their car. Mark was given instructions by one of the men, and he returned home and informed his mother of what had happened. She in turn informed his father, who notified the police.

The four men took Amy McNeil to the Foote home and Lisa Bouvier was charged with caring for her. Amy’s father was called. They instructed him to obtain $100,000 in cash. The following day, the men, all armed with shotguns and pistols, and Lisa Bouvier left the house in a stolen car. They carried Amy McNeil, the kidnapped victim, with them.

After driving a circuitous route, the group proceeded to the place designated for McNeil to bring the money. Mills was driving the vehicle, and en route the group concluded that they were being followed by the police. Shots were then fired from the vehicle. Bouvier testified they were going to take a hostage at a filling station or house. The car was going too fast to stop at the filling station and stopped in a yard near a house in Saltillo. Lisa and Amy got on the floorboard. Mills, Barnes and Foote got out of the car.

Shots were exchanged, and when the shooting stopped, Mills and Foote were lying on the ground in front of a van which was parked in the yard. Mills raised his hands and surrendered to Texas Rangers Bill Gunn, Howard Alford and John Dendy, who had been among the pursuing officers.

Parole Review Status
Offender is currently in the Parole Review Process

The parole review process begins approximately six months before the parole eligibility date for a first review and four months before the eligibility date in additional reviews. The process begins with the offender’s file being reviewed for all appropriate documents, including letters of support and protest. An Institutional Parole Officer reviews the file and interviews the offender before preparing a case summary for the Board voting panel. The Board normally will vote on the case just prior to the parole eligibility date.

Offenders eligible for mandatory supervision who committed an offense since September 1, 1996 are reviewed for Discretionary Mandatory Supervision (DMS). An offender who has received a Serve All vote is reviewed for possible release to DMS by a Board panel prior to being released on the projected release date.
