ST. MARY PARISH, La. (KLFY) Attorneys for Quawan Charles’s family are calling on law enforcement to arrest the woman who picked up Charles on October 30, the day he went missing.
They believe Janet Irvin should be charged with delinquincy of a minor after releasing a tapping between her private investigator Irvin and her son.
Irvin and her teenage son are the last people known to be with Charles before his death.
“I leave work like on Friday lunchtime. So let’s go to Baldwin and pick him up, ”said Janet Irvin in the recording.
Lawyers say the record is all law enforcement agencies need to make an arrest.
They say that’s because after she picked Charles up, Janet Irvin was in charge of him.
“Yes, I should have called the police. I should have gone further, ”continued Janet Irvin.
In the recording, Janet Irving admitted that she hadn’t called the police after realizing Charles ran away from her house that night.
Attorneys for Charles’ family say when Irvin failed to call the police she committed a crime.
Irvin, who does not inform the police of Charles ‘disappearance, also makes the lawyers question their involvement in Charles’ death, as his body was found in a field less than a mile from their home.
Irvin’s son, who says he is friends with Charles, also admitted to the private investigator that the two teenagers used drugs together after picking up Charles that afternoon.
In the recording, the private detective asks Irvin’s son: “Did he smoke something?”
Irvin’s son replies: “Yes, he smoked some weed. That’s it. ‘”
While law enforcement await Charles’ toxicology reports, Charles family lawyers say Janet Irvin should be arrested for delinquency of a minor for serving the two teenage drugs.
