Milwaukee — Last week, a three-year-old Major Harris, who was the subject of a lively Amber Alert, was found dead Thursday afternoon, Milwaukee police said at a news conference.
The boy was last seen on October 9th.
The news that Harris’s body was found was announced after authorities found the body of Harris’ mother, 24-year-old Mallery Münzenberger, at Milwaukee’s house.
Police also said they had found Jaheem Clark, the body of the suspect.
Police say he committed suicide shortly after the police entered the house where he was.
On Wednesday, police confirmed to TMJ4 News that they had made several arrests in connection with the murder of Münzenberger. At this time, the suspects of Harris’ disappearance and death have not been revealed.
Deputy Chief of Police Milwaukee, Jeffrey Norman, had few details to publish while he described the “fluid” investigation. According to police, Harris’s body was found at 35 and Roll on the northwest side of the city.
“We must be strategic in the use of our resources,” said Chief Norman. “But we also understand the urgency and seriousness. As you can see the resources utilized here, this is not something we downplay. And this situation arises. When we do, we stay there for the community. To see this again. “
Last Thursday, 24-year-old Münzenberger was found dead at home.
According to police, she died from multiple gunshot wounds.
MPD research later identified Jaheem Clark as a person of interest.
Milwaukee police approached the house where Clark was believed to have been on Sunday.
Shortly after arriving there, police officers heard at least two gunshots from inside the house.
A policeman entered the house and found Clark’s body.
According to police, he died of a self-harm gunshot wound.
According to the MPD, police officers did not fire weapons while on the scene.
Police said Tuesday that Clark is now considered a suspect in Münzenberger’s death.
On Monday, police found a vehicle identified by an Amber Alert near a laundromat not far from Havenwoods State Forest.
Based on interviews and evidence, police continued to believe that Harris and Münzenberger arrived in Milwaukee around October 9.
The investigation took longer than expected because Muenzenberger is not from Milwaukee.
Milwaukee police and local, state, and federal agencies conducted a search for Harris throughout the state and the city of Milwaukee.
