Police seek NJ man wanted in 2-year-old's death

FREEHOLD, N.J. - November 25, 2011

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.
