HUMBOLDT, Tenn. — Just one day after being kidnapped at gunpoint and shot, a local banker is back home in Humboldt. It is just another part of the miraculous events surrounding Janeice Frisbee. Her family says she is a little sore but in good spirits and thankful for her community coming out and leaving gifts on her front steps to show love and support. “Every card, every flower and every balloon on that porch, she deserves it,” Janeice’s friend Laurie Gamble said. One day after police said she was kidnapped from her Main Street home, forced at gunpoint into the BancorpSouth branch where she works and shot multiple times, Janeice Frisbee is back home recovering. “We don’t want to get in the way or interfere in any way,” Gamble said. “We know she needs her time, but we tried to come up with something we could do just to let her know how much we do appreciate her.” Residents in Humboldt said that although they are known for the West Tennessee Strawberry Festival, they are a lot bigger than that one event because they come together any day of the year that one of their residents is in need. “There’s no greater town that will band together in a time like this to show Janeice how much support and love she has,” resident Jocelyn Bundy said. Her family, talking for the first time since the ordeal, said Janeice is doing well. “She said she’s a little sore, naturally,” family member Robert Bustamante said. “She’s tired. She wants to get some rest.” But overall, they say she is ready to move on. “She had a traumatic occurrence, and she just wants to put that behind her,” Bustamante said. “She wants to go on with her life and her family.” As for the necklace that some have said saved her from a point-blank shot to the chest from a .40-caliber pistol, friends said she has always known what to wear. “That’s how she looks every day — that’s the one thing you look at,” Gamble said. “That girl can accessorize! So it really payed off for her Wednesday.” Janeice’s family said she has a long road to recovery but will be excited to get back to work at the bank as soon as possible.
