The same day a missing 2-week-old infant was found in a duffel bag in the woods, her father, name a person of interest, was arrested by law enforcement.
The Associated Press reports:
The child’s father, Christopher McNabb, fled shortly before being named a person of interest in her death Sunday, according to the reports, which cited the Newton County Sheriff’s Office. The father, 27, was apprehended hours after the baby’s body was found and charged with a probation violation involving a burglary. But the Atlanta Journal-Constitution quoted sheriff’s spokesman Keith Crum as saying that investigators do not have probable cause to charge anyone in connection with the baby’s death.
The parents told authorities during the initial investigation that baby Caliyah was changed at 5:00 a.m. Saturday after being fed and was found to be missing around 10:00 a.m. Volunteer search teams located the infant on Sunday.
The Associated Press also reports that the father fled an attempted apprehension by investigators by jumping out of a vehicle and ran. He was found near a convenience store.
The infant’s mother was questioned by police and released.
