Memphis police have announced that Amber Whitlow, a 12-year-old missing Arkansas girl, has been found unharmed after being abducted by her adoptive brother who allegedly killed their parents.
Antonio Whitlow, 33, has been charged with two counts of capital murder for the death of his 65-year-old parents, Annette and Bobby Whitlow. On Saturday afternoon, they were both found deceased in their Little Rock home and both Antonio and Amber were missing. Police issued an Amber Alert for the young girl who they feared was in danger.
On Saturday night, authorities found Antonio and Amber near Red Birds Stadium, police spokeswoman Alyssa Moore told ABCNews.com.
“Amber was taken to a children’s hospital as a precaution, and the Tennessee and Arkansas departments of child services were notified,” Moore stated.
Little Rock police reported that Annette was found dead in her living room by Grady Carter, who arrived at the couple’s house for a meeting. When authorities arrived, they discovered Bobby’s body in the kitchen. Police are not commenting about the couple’s cause of death; however, reports reveal that a knife or other cutting instrument was involved.
Bobby Whitlow was a Vietnam War Veteran who oversaw Warriors of Christ ministry, according to his twitter account. He referred to Annette, as a “prophetess” and would often tweet religious proverbs to his followers.
“The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child who gets his own way brings shame to his mother. Proverbs 29:15,” was his last tweet.
