Law enforcement officials in Florida said late Monday that a woman had been arrested in Alabama and charged with helping her son locate a woman who investigators say he shot and killed inside a Home Depot store.

Escambia County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office deputies said they discovered that Sheila Agee was communicating with her son, Keith Agree, by text as he planned to shoot the victim.

Further text messages that deputies released indicate that Sheila Agee was not only aware of Keith Agee’s plans to murder Brooklyn Sims, but the mother alerted him to Sims’ whereabout so he could commit the crime on August 11.

According to text messages, it’s clear that Keith Agee’s mother, Sheila Agee, knew and participated in the plan to kill Brooklyn Sims. Additionally, text messages between mother and son highlight the mother’s involvement in helping locate the victim.

“The murder itself is unbelievable, but to know the mother knew about it and helped coordinate it is incomprehensible.” – Sheriff Chip W. Simmons
