(Scroll down for video) A baby girl was found alive and covered in mosquito bites after the murder-suicide of the child’s parents in the family car, according to police in Virginia.
The Accomack County Sheriff’s Office said that on Saturday around 8:40 a.m., they received calls about gunshots on Pierce Taylor Road near Mappsville.
Police officers who arrived at the scene, found two individuals who were believed to be deceased, and an infant inside a vehicle.
Paramedics who arrived at the scene, declared the two adults deceased from apparent gunshot wounds, and the child was evaluated and was determined to be in good health other than numerous mosquito bites.
The deceased individuals have been identified as 20-year-old Elizabeth Madison Ann Jensen of Sanford and 27-year-old Jonan Fabricio Gonzales-Funes of Bloxom.
The infant was determined to be the child of the deceased individuals. Custody of the child has since been turned over to other family members.
Gonzales-Funes was employed as a correctional officer with the Accomack County Sheriff’s Office since September 2015. At this time, it appears that this incident was the result of a murder-suicide, and that Gonzales-Funes is the suspect.
