LORANGER — The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office confirms that one of the two missing girls at the center of a statewide Amber Alert has been found dead in Mississippi, while her older sister was found injured, but alive after a pursuit. This follows the discovery of their mother’s body in Loranger, Tangipahoa Parish, earlier that day.

The body of 4-year-old Erin was found in a wooded area in Jackson, Mississippi. Her 6-year-old sister, Jalie, was found safe with the suspect, Daniel Callihan, according to the TPSO.

Callihan, 36, from Amite, has been arrested in Jackson, Mississippi. TPSO’s Jimmy Davis informed UWK that Callihan had previously dated the girls’ mother, Callie Brunett, and it’s why her murder is now being investigated as a domestic homicide.

Early Thursday morning, Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards said Callie Brunett’s father found her dead inside her home on N. Cooper Road in Loranger.

“Callie’s father went to residence around 8 a.m. and forced entry into the locked trailer and located his daughter’s body on her bedroom floor,” said TPSO’s Chief Deputy Jimmy Davis.
