Report: Missing Houston-area 1-year-old dead after father fatally stabs child | KTA

ROSENBURG, Texas (KXAN) – Police say the one-year-old girl at the center of a Houston-area Amber Alert has died after her abduction suspect, her father, fatally stabbed her and himself, KPRC reported in Houston.

An Amber Alert was issued Tuesday night for 1-year-old Leylani Ordonez, who was taken from Rosenberg, Texas, a town southwest of Houston. Alexander Ordonez, 24, has been named as a suspect.

KPRC reported that officers found the suspect’s vehicle, a 2004 F-450, near an HEB around 2 a.m. Wednesday.

KPRC said officers tried to arrest Alexander, but he walked away, leading them on an hour-long chase that ended in Rosenberg. Police said Alexander got out of the truck with Leylani, who was already injured. He then stabbed himself, KPRC reported.

Leylani was taken to hospital, where she was pronounced dead, according to KPRC. Police say Alexander died of “self-inflicted stab wounds”.

Leylani first disappeared at 6:10 p.m. Tuesday in the 800 block of Brooks Avenue in Rosenberg wearing a red Whataburger jumpsuit, the Amber Alert said.
