Mother, daughter, suspect found dead in garage

CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Police have confirmed that a kidnapped 19-year-old woman Latasha Jackson, and her 13-month-old daughter, Chaniya Wynn, have been found dead on the 7000 block of Union Avenue in a closed garage.

The suspect, Thomas Lorde, 35, was also found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was Jackson's estranged boyfriend.

According to a police report, officers responded to the area of E. 70th St. and Union Ave., and then proceded to Jackson's home after Jackson and Wynn were kidnapped.

Around 11:45 a.m. Saturday, Jackson was pushing Wynn in a stroller headed south on E. 72nd St. along with David Thomas, 14. At that time, Lorde walked up to Thomas and showed him a handgun and told him "get to walking" -- as in leave the area.

Lorde then started to push the stroller with one hand while using the gun to signal Jackson to walk with him.

Thomas walked away from the scene but continued to observe the situation. He saw them continue south until he lost sight of them at E. 72nd and Union. That's when Thomas ran home and told his mother what happened. She then alerted police.

An Amber Alert was issued a few hours later.

Police investigation shows that Jackson had been attempting to get out of a relationship she had with Lorde. They had been a couple for about two months.

Cleveland Police cancelled the Amber Alert for the abducted mother and child just before 4:00 a.m. Sunday when the three were located dead in the garage of a vacant house.

According to officials, Lorde has an extensive criminal history and is registered as a sexual predator. According to the State of Ohio, he was released in 2009 after serving time for a case involving a juvenile female.

He was also a registered sex offender in the state of New York with a code 3, "extremely violent" note attached to his record.
