Billy Deel was a very troubled young man. He was labeled a "juvenile delinquent," and had been known to torture and kill animals, steal, and vandalize the property of others. Billy thought of Jeanette as a girlfriend, but the feeling was definitely not mutual. He gave her a ring made of turquoise, which she eventually returned..... after he attempted to rape her. In response to being given back his gift, Billy appeared at the Wall's home with a BB gun and proceeded to shoot at the children. The police wanted them to appear in court the next morning, something that resulted in the family's hurried departure to Phoenix.
