A Louisiana woman was found dead in her home Thursday, and her two young daughters were abducted and found hours later in Mississippi — one dead and the other alive, police said.

A Louisiana resident who had dated the woman was arrested in Jackson, Mississippi, in connection with the deaths and abduction, investigators said.

“He had the victim’s car along with her alive-and-well 6-year-old child,” said Chief Deputy Jimmy Travis of the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Office in Louisiana.

The body of the other child, a 4-year-old, was found near the car in a wooded area in Jackson, Travis said.

    Fuck… I got this Amber alert today while playing videogames with my kid… I dismissed it, told him it was just an alarm, and then got another later saying it was cancelled, “check local news sources for details”. I assumed it was what I thought a lot of them are: domestic dispute leads to a parent driving off with the kids and the other parent calling the cops. This is way more grim than I thought

      People are awful. God had no part in this. If god did, then he’s a cruel god. If he didn’t, then where is his omnipotence? If its about free will, where is the child’s free will?

      What god invents childhood leukemias? What plan could require them and if god was all powerful, could they not make a plan that doesn’t harm innocents.
