Amber Alert Yields Quick Arrest in Ohio of Murder Suspect.

A Tennessee man suspected of killing his wife and running off with their young daughter was caught hundreds of miles away Thursday morning when a man listening to his car radio heard an Amber Alert for the missing girl and realized he was driving behind the suspect’s car, the authorities said. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) listed Tyler Enix on the state’s Top 10 Most Wanted List after his estranged wife Kimberly Enix was found dead in her apartment and their daughter Brooklynne Enix was no where to be seen.

A convicted domestic abuser took his 2-year-old girl on the run after the girl’s mother was found slain in her Knoxville, Tenn., home Wednesday, police said. Investigators believe Tyler Enix, 36, abducted Brooklynne Enix following the homicide at Kimberly Enix’s Quiet Way apartment in Fountain City in northern Knoxville, police told the Knoxville News Sentinel.

Officers discovered the 36-year-old’s body at 2:18 p.m. after her mother’s colleagues alerted police she hadn’t shown up for work, according to the Knoxville Police Department. According to warrants obtained by the newspaper, Tyler forced Ellison into his car after she tried to break up with him, drove about a mile away, hit her twice and then threw her out of the vehicle. • Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? He pleaded guilty to assault and harassment against his previous wife in October 2010 and walked free last July before his four-year sentence ended, WBIR-TV reported.

The Amber Alerts program is a partnership overseen by the Department of Justice that brings together law enforcement, broadcasters, state transportation agencies and communications companies across the country to help locate children who are believed to be in imminent danger. Instead of urging Enix to turn himself in, Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch simply asked him to drop off the girl in a safe location, like a hospital or fire hall. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) continues to develop new methods for disseminating information about child abductions, including a partnerships with Uber and Facebook.
