LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Authorities in Arkansas were searching for a man who they suspect killed his parents Saturday and abducted his adopted 12-year-old sister.
Little Rock police spokeswoman Sgt. Cassandra Davis said 33-year-old Antonio Whitlow is wanted on two counts of capital murder in connection with the slayings of his 65-year-old parents, Annette and Bobby Whitlow.
Authorities also issued an Amber Alert for the couple’s 12-year-old adopted daughter, Amber Whitlow, who police believe was kidnapped by Antonio Whitlow.
Davis said that officers received a call shortly after 3 p.m. Saturday from a church member who was supposed to meet with the couple and discovered Annette Whitlow’s body. When police arrived on scene, they found Bobby Whitlow’s body.
Davis wouldn’t say how the elder Whitlows died, but police said they believe Amber Whitlow’s life is in danger.
The young girl was last seen wearing knee-length jean shorts and a light blue short-sleeve shirt, according to an Amber Alert News release.
Police said Antonio Whitlow may be driving an older, black Lincoln Town Car with a vinyl top. Davis said she didn’t have any information about where he might be headed.
Outside the Whitlows’ home, neighbors huddled around yellow caution tape Saturday evening as investigators wheeled a yellow body bag out to the coroner’s van.
