Levi Elliott Case

The events giving rise to Levi’s convictions occurred on the evening of March 24, 2012. In March of 2012, Levi was fifteen years old, and his half-sister, Sierra Elliott (“Sierra”), was twelve years old.4 Both Levi and Sierra lived with their father, Jim Elliott, and Sierra’s mother, Peggy Elliott, in Bolivar, Missouri. The previous month, Jim and Peggy Elliott’s older son, Andy Summers (“Summers”), moved out of the house, leaving behind a gun cabinet containing some firearms. The gun cabinet was locked, but the key to the cabinet was located on top of the cabinet. Summers had taught Levi how to shoot the .22 caliber guns for target practice and at the time that Summers moved out of the house, the magazine for the .22 caliber Ruger rifle remained loaded.

On March 24, 2012, around 8:00 p.m., Jim and Peggy Elliott left twelve-year-old Sierra in the care of her brother Levi Elliott while they ran an errand. Jim and Peggy Elliott owned a white Ford pickup truck that remained at the house.

Jim and Peggy Elliott returned home in about one hour. When they returned, they noticed that the house was dark and their pickup truck was missing. Jim Elliott entered his home and yelled for his children. He heard moaning coming from the master bedroom where he found Sierra lying on the bed with a gunshot wound to her head. Levi was not at home. Jim and Peggy Elliott called 911, and Sierra was airlifted to the hospital. Sierra did not regain consciousness and passed away the following day. The projectile from the gun that injured Sierra was consistent with a Ruger .22 caliber rifle. There were no signs of forced entry into the home and nothing was missing from the home. Summers’s gun cabinet was open.

Video surveillance at the Walmart in Clinton, Missouri showed that Levi Elliott parked Jim and Peggy Elliott’s white Ford pickup truck in the Walmart parking lot at approximately 9:02 p.m. and walked into the store. Levi remained in the store for approximately two hours. Two Walmart employees testified about speaking with Levi while he was in the store. Nicole Marsh, who worked in the electronics department, received two calls for Levi. She testified that she spoke to a woman who stated she was Levi’s grandmother and was frantic wanting to speak with him. She paged Levi’s name over the store public address system and identified Levi as the person who responded to the page. Levi told the woman on the phone that he “didn’t do anything” and that he did not want his father to know his location. A second call came in from a woman claiming to be Levi’s mother. Levi was paged again and he responded. He spoke with the woman on the phone and said he “hadn’t done it” and kept telling her not to tell his father his location. Levi also spoke with Walmart employee Vickie Anderson (“Anderson”), who asked him if he needed help. Levi was nervous and said that he was on spring break and was just hanging around. Levi told her that he had been watching movies with his sister. In the conversation, they discussed hunting, and Anderson mentioned to Levi that she had a black Jeep that was parked outside.

Levi Elliott also spoke with his step-father Robert Adams (“Robert”), the husband of Levi’s biological mother, Joy Adams (“Joy”)5 , while at Walmart. Levi told Robert he needed someone to pick him up from Walmart. In a subsequent conversation, Levi claimed that when he was home alone with Sierra, he heard a loud noise from down the hallway. He went to investigate and saw that Sierra had been shot, and a man with a rifle was rummaging through a dresser. Levi claimed that he put on his shoes and fled the scene in Jim and Peggy Elliott’s truck. Levi claimed that the man pursued him in a black Jeep for several miles but eventually gave up. Levi then stopped the truck at Walmart because the truck was out of gas.

Joy testified that she received a call from Peggy Elliott the night of the shooting, who told her that Levi had shot Sierra. Joy spoke with Levi while he was at Walmart, and Joy’s parents, Levi’s grandparents, picked Levi up from the Walmart and brought him to a hotel. Levi told the same story regarding the intruder and car chase with the black Jeep to Joy. When Joy learned the police were looking for her son, she took him to a police station in Kansas City.
