Police Seek New Jersey Man Wanted In 2-Year-Old’s Death

FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) — 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.
