A hor­rif­ic crime has rocked the com­mu­ni­ty of Lakeville, Min­neso­ta. Jack Joseph Ball (23) has been charged with the bru­tal mur­der and dis­mem­ber­ment of his preg­nant sis­ter, Bethany Israel (30), and her unborn child.

Gris­ly Dis­cov­ery After Miss­ing Per­son Report

The tragedy unfold­ed last Thurs­day evening. Bethany’s moth­er, con­cerned about her daugh­ter’s where­abouts after a din­ner out­ing with her broth­er, con­tact­ed author­i­ties. Respond­ing offi­cers arrived at the res­i­dence to find a grue­some scene — a sig­nif­i­cant amount of blood and dis­mem­bered body parts. The inves­ti­ga­tion con­firmed the remains belonged to Bethany, who was four months pregnant.

Motive Linked to Pregnancy

Inves­ti­ga­tors dis­cov­ered jour­nals belong­ing to Ball that shed light on a pos­si­ble motive. The writ­ings report­ed­ly expressed anger towards Bethany’s preg­nan­cy, lead­ing him to believe she was “no longer innocent.”

Com­mu­ni­ty Dev­as­tat­ed, Sup­port Pours In

Ball, appre­hend­ed by police while suf­fer­ing from self-inflict­ed injuries, now faces two counts of sec­ond-degree mur­der. The sense­less crime has left the com­mu­ni­ty reel­ing, with neigh­bors describ­ing the inci­dent as “deeply dis­turb­ing.” A GoFundMe cam­paign has been estab­lished to sup­port Bethany’s hus­band and fam­i­ly dur­ing this unimag­in­able time.

A Call for Awareness

This heart­break­ing sto­ry under­scores the dev­as­tat­ing impact of fam­i­ly vio­lence and the crit­i­cal need to address men­tal health con­cerns before they esca­late. As legal pro­ceed­ings move for­ward, the focus remains on ensur­ing jus­tice for Bethany, her unborn child, and their loved ones.
