A 10-year-old Manatee County girl and her father were found dead in a vehicle in rural Ohio in an apparent murder-suicide, according to the sheriff in Henry County.
Timothy Brown, 47, took his daughter, Alexandra, from her home in Parrish due to a custody dispute, Sheriff Michael D. Bodenbender said in a news release.
Both were found dead Monday morning in a vehicle on County Road 16A in Pleasant Township, the sheriff said.
Investigators said a 9 mm handgun was used in the shootings.
Bodenbender said the bodies were removed from the vehicle and taken to the Lucas County coroner's office for autopsies.
