Search For Man Accused Of Shooting Baby Daughter And Girlfriend

Lawmen are searching for a man who shot and killed his own 13-week-old baby and his girlfriend Monday in Seattle, Washington.

They say the suspect, 29-year-old Daniel Hicks, has been on the run ever since and is believed to be armed and dangerous.

Christmas Eve, family and friends held a Christmas Eve memorial for the victims 28-year-old Jennifer Morgan and her daughter Ema.

Morgans' mother, who found their bodies Tuesday, says she's still trying to wrap her mind around what happened.

"I'm really super numb, but inside my mind's racing," she said. "I can't hold still. I need to keep in constant motion. I grieve for my daughter and my granddaughter."

Hicks was charged with aggravated first degree murder.
If convicted, he could face the death penalty.

    The man decides the sex of the baby. If he was that disappointed then he should have shot himself.

    What is wrong with people? Are all the folks crazy in Washington and Oregon? They have state assisted suicide, medical marjunia, other liberal stances. Do we want to follow the example of the people in these states? Just read the news from the last 3 days. NOw this weirdo. Who would kill their child just because of their sex? Wait Communism chinese people do. Only 30% of the people in the state of Washington go to church or believe in God. 70% don't. And we want to pattern our federal govt. on thier state govts.

    My heart and prayers go out to the family of the victims. All this low life had to do was walk away and not support his daughter...seems to be the going thing now days, but to kill his girlfriend and baby girl because he wanted a son...or whatever reason.I say catch him and send him to Texas. People have more rights and sometimes better living conditions in prison than the actual person trying to make a decent living. Come on....what's wrong with the system..maybe, a harder sentence with less living arrangements in prison would lower a few crime rates. Innocent people are losing their life while the convicts are gaining inside the walls.
