CLEVELAND (AP) — Police say a woman and her 1-year-old daughter were found dead in a Cleveland garage next to the body of the woman's estranged boyfriend, who was suspected of kidnapping them.

Cleveland police Sgt. Sammy Morris says the three were found with gunshot wounds before 3 a.m. Sunday in a closed garage at an unoccupied building. He says it appears the man, Thomas Lorde, had shot himself in the head.

Police have said Lorde abducted 19-year-old Latasha Jackson and her daughter Chaniya Wynn around noon Saturday while the mother was pushing the girl in a stroller.

An Amber Alert issued for them says Lorde was armed and described him as a violent sexual predator with outstanding felony warrants in New York.
