According to arrest affidavits for family members arrested in Keiosha Felix's case, Patricia Andrus and Portia Felix are accused of lying to investigators while being questioned about Keiosha's disappearance. Keiosha was in state custody, and disappeared from her Aunt Patricia and cousin Portia's home on April 30. She was at Andrus' house on a weekend pass. Portia is charged with obstruction of justice, and Andrus is charged with accessory to rape and improper supervision. They are the last two people who saw the 15 year old before she went missing.
The affidavit states that on July 25, Duson police questioned Portia several times, asking her why she lied and made police believe family was in contact with Keiosha. "Portia stated she don't know why she did it." According to the document, Lt. Gerald Credeur accuses Portia of lying to police during several interviews. The affidavit confirms police initially considered Keiosha a runaway and not a missing person since family claimed to be in touch with her.
Patricia Andrus' arrest affidavit alleges Andrus lied about her boyfriend, Leon Wilkerson, being accused of raping Keiosha. When Lt. Credeur asked her again, "Andrus started crying." The document alleges Keiosha told her aunt there was some innapropriate sexual contact. When asked if Wilkerson raped Keiosha, "Ms. Andrus continued to cry and would not answer." Andrus said she didn't report the alleged rape to police and the Louisiana Department of Children & Family Services, because Wilkerson told her it wasn't true, "so she left it alone," according to the affidavit.
Both Portia and Andrus have bonded out of jail.
