Father Charged In The Death Of His Year Old Daughter

The fugitive father of a 2-year-old girl found dead in a car seat in a creek was charged with murder Wednesday after an autopsy showed she had drowned.
The victim, Tierra Morgan-Glover, lived in Lakehurst with her mother and was having a court-approved visit with her father on Monday, but he never took her back. The girl's body was discovered Tuesday in Wall Township, about 20 miles north of where she live
"This is an unspeakably awful tragedy," Monmouth County Prosecutor Peter Warshaw said. "It appears to be senseless and without reason."

The toddler was discovered by children playing in Shark River Park, said Christopher Gramiccioni, a spokesman for the Monmouth County prosecutor's office. The children notified park rangers, who called police.
A 911 call was received by police at 2:28 p.m., saying that "student-aged children came across what they were concerned was a child in the creek," Gramiccioni said.
Police found the girl's body, still strapped in the car seat, partly submerged in the creek, a tributary of the nearby Shark River. The creek is 3 to 7 feet deep in the area where the body was found, near a roadway overpass about 15 feet above the creek.
