Deputies found a mother dead in a Marion County home Wednesday — and her 1-year-old missing.
The Marion County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a relative of Kiara Alleyene who was concerned for her well‐being, according to the sheriff’s office.
When deputies arrived at the home in Anthony, Florida, they found Alleyene, 20, dead inside, they said.
Detectives later received information that Deangelo Leandrew Shelton Clark might be a suspect in Alleyene’s death. A tipster quoted Clark as saying he was going to take his own life as well as Alleyene’s, deputies said.
Clark was not at the home when deputies found Alleyene. He had left with Alleyene’s 1-year-old daughter, deputies said.
An Amber Alert was issued, but was later canceled when the girl was found with a family member.
Clark was found and arrested early Wednesday afternoon in Monroe County, which is more than 400 miles away from Marion County, deputies said.
