A manhunt is underway in Oklahoma and Missouri for a man and a woman who have escaped leaving behind a dead kid. Apart from the dead child, who was the fourth one out of the five the two share, there were three others who were found in critical condition, authorities said. The authorities confirmed the death of the child but did not reveal other details in the case.
There was also a fifth child who was undocumented but was born in a hotel room, the St Louis Metropolitan Police said. The child has not been located. The man's name is Hakim Mustafa and he is 27, while the woman's name is Robin Alexander and she is 29. The two are being searched for by the Altus Police Department, Oklahoma PD and the St. Louis police U.S. Marshals Task Force, St. Louis police said.
Warrants against them were issued last month on June 10 after they did not appear in court relating to a child abuse and neglect case. They were set to appear in Jackson County, Oklahoma. The two were charged with three counts of child abuse and one count for child neglect and enabling child neglect. "During the investigation, the Altus Police Department received information that both subjects had fled to St. Louis, Missouri trying to evade capture," the police said in a release.
The reason for the children's critical condition has also not been revealed by the police. They have also not revealed their ages. Their photos have been released but they are said to be at least five years old. The police have asked for the public's help to locate these subjects and ensure the wellbeing of the fifth child. The three children are currently in Oklahoma State’s custody.
The US Marshals Service is offering up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of these two subjects. Anyone w/information should contact 9-1-1 or @STLRCS @866-371-TIPS (8477).
