Manhunt for NJ man wanted in daughter's death
WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- Authorities are searching for a New Jersey father wanted in the drowning death of his 2-year-old toddler.
Police have charged Arthur Morgan III with murder after an autopsy showed the child died from 'homicidal violence.'
Two-year-old Tierra Morgan was found dead Tuesday by park goers. They spotted the child strapped in her car seat and partially submerged in a creek in Wall Township.
Morgan has remained at large despite a dragnet involving 13 law enforcement agencies including the FBI.
Authorities believe the 27-year-old, of Ocean Township, may have left the state.
The toddler lived in Lakehurst with her mother and was having her first visitation with her father in a month.
Police say Morgan was supposed to return the girl to her mother Monday night.
