Antonio Whitlow 'murdered his elderly parents at their home before abducting adopted sister, 12'

A 33-year-old who fled after allegedly murdering his church-going elderly parents and abducting his 12-year-old adopted sister has been found with the girl nearly 150 miles away.

Police had launched a massive manhunt for Antonio Whitlow after his parents were found dead at their home in Little Rock, Arkansas and his younger sister, Amber Whitlow, was missing.

They have now been found on foot in Memphis, Tennessee after police 'received information'. They have been taken into custody and the girl does not show any signs of physical injury, police said.

Antonio Whitlow was wanted on two counts of capital murder in connection with the slayings of his 65-year-old parents, Annette and Bobby Whitlow, at their home.

A church member alerted authorities to the murder scene at 3 p.m after going to meet with Bobby and Annette Whitlow at their home, where she found the woman's body inside the doorway.

Police swooped on the scene and also found the man's body, but have not released how they died.

Little Rock police spokeswoman Sgt. Cassandra Davis said police issued an Amber Alert and released a still picture from surveillance video taken near the scene of Whitlow's car. Read More
