Following the killing of her mother, the search continues for the kidnapped girl in Knoxville. Local and state authorities are still searching for the 2 year old girl who was kidnapped by her father. Her father is the main suspect in the killing of her mother after her body was discovered in their Fountain City apartment this Wednesday afternoon.
An Amber Alert was released for Brooklynne Emerie Enix and a manhunt was launched in the search for her father, Tyler Ward Enix. The girl was last seen this Tuesday; according to sources, the girl showed up at her mother’s house, but it was unclear whether she was with a man or not.
The body of 36 year old Kimberly Enix was found inside of her home at around 2:20 PM when the woman did not show up for work that day. A warrant was issued for Tyler Enix who is connected with the death of his wife, Knoxville Police Department officials said.
Both the child and her father are probably traveling in a 2011 Chevy Impala which belonged to the mother. The Tennessee tag number for the car is G61-16U.
Authorities have stated that for the time being the main focus of their investigation is finding the child. Her parents apparently were going through a rough period in their relationship but it is yet unclear if they were planning to get divorced or not.
Tyler Enix has a long list of violence against women. He has convictions in Knox County for harassment and aggravated assault. These acts were targeted at his ex-wife, Jessica Marie Enix, back in October 2010.
The man was then sentenced to four years in prison for his convictions. He managed to leave prison on early parole and the sentence expired in July 2014. Officials from the Department of Corrections gave no answer when questions arose about the reasoning behind his granted parole.
Enix has a long history of abusing ex-wives and girlfriends alike. He served another one-year sentence back in 2001 after harassing and stalking another of his ex-wives, Allison Enix. The man was described as white and bald with blue eyes. He is 6 feet 2 inches tall and weights about 205 pounds.
Brooklynne is around 3 feet tall and weighs 38 pounds. She has blue eye and blondish-brownish hair. If you see any of the people matching these descriptions or know any details about the case you should call E-911 or 800-TBI-FIND.
