Brother, 23, kills and dismembers pregnant elder sister, 30, in anger for WEIRD reason

28

A man dismembered his pregnant sister because he was angry she was ‘no longer innocent’.

Jack Joseph Ball, 23, was caught after dumping body parts on a neighbor’s doorstep, according to authorities. 

He was charged Tuesday, May 28, with two counts of murder for killing his married sister Bethany Israel, 30, and her unborn child, who was about 18 weeks, Dakota County Attorney Kathryn Keenan said. 

HOW HE WAS BUSTED

He was arrested last Thursday, May 23, in a neighbor’s yard after he was spotted on a Ring cam dumping dismembered body parts on the front step and around the yard, according to a criminal complaint. 

HE SELF-INFLICTED HIMSELF TOO

Ball slashed his own throat and was ‘covered in blood on his head, shirt, arms, legs and pants,’ according to the document.

A bloody saw, hatchet and knives were found in his home.

WEIRD REASON HE KILLED HER

Investigators also found ‘several journals’, including one in which he wrote about being ‘angry’ his sister ‘was pregnant and ‘no longer innocent,’ the complaint stated.

PRIOR TO THE MURDER

The brother and sister had earlier had dinner, before the alarm was raised by Israel’s mom who was worried that she had not come home, the affidavit said.

The mom had gone to Ball’s home, and he ‘tore out of there,’ the affidavit said.

Inside the home, police found a large pool of blood in the kitchen along with a ‘bloody saw, hatchet, and large, bloody, knives,’ that were likely used to dismember Israel.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT?

He made his first court appearance Tuesday, May 28, where his bail has been set for $2 million without conditions and $1 million with conditions.

When he is medically cleared, he will be transferred to the Dakota County Jail as he awaits his next hearing on June 10.
