Authorities are investigating an apparent triple murder-suicide in St. Louis County, Missouri, that led to an AMBER Alert after the suspect fled the violent scene with his 1-year-old daughter.
According to KDSK, Roseann McCulley and two of her children, 13-year-old Kayden Johnson and 6-year-old Kaylee Brooks, were found shot to death in a home early Friday morning. A subsequent investigation determined that Roseann’s estranged husband Bobby McCulley III was the suspect in the triple-murder, and he is also suspected of having kidnapped his 1-year-old daughter from the home.
After police discovered the murder victims and determined that a child was missing, Missouri State Highway Patrol issued an Amber Alert issued an AMBER Alert. The child was found safe at about 5 a.m., having been dropped off earlier that morning at the home of a family member, presumably by McCulley.
According to the report, police spotted the suspect’s vehicle on surveillance camera traveling near Goodfellow Boulevard and Natural Bridge Avenue at some point Friday–it is not clear what time–and followed the car to the Old North St. Louis neighborhood.
WANTED: Bobby McCulley III, 35, is accused of abducting the child. The Missouri State Highway Patrol says that he may be driving a silver 2010 Dodge Charger with Missouri plate ID ZC6T3V. https://t.co/MVtSpAYMEI
