Baby Cries Lead Police to Tragic Discovery

This past weekend, Amanda Hicks, a 26-year-old teacher in Florida, was tragically found dead alongside an adult male in a suspected murder-suicide.

On Saturday, at around 11:45 a.m., the police in Florida found the bodies of the couple after they were summoned to the Peacock Run apartments on Northwest East Torino Parkway, located in the 5500 blocks. A relative of the unnamed adult male requested a welfare check on the couple and encountered the tragic scene.

When officers arrived on the scene, they could hear an infant crying from inside the locked apartment. Thankfully, the baby was unharmed, found safe in its crib, and is now being cared for by a family member.

While officials have not yet released the adult male’s identity, it is suspected that he killed Hicks before taking his own life. Police have stated that no one else was involved and are not seeking any additional suspects.

As news of Amanda Hicks’s heartbreaking death quickly spread, those who knew her paid tribute to her radiant spirit and impact on her students’ lives.

As the Colleyville school district offers support and counseling for the students and staff, people must remember that domestic violence is a prevalent issue and that all those in an abusive relationship should ask for assistance.

While Amanda Hicks’ life ended too soon, her bright spirit, warm smile, and motherly love are worth remembering and honoring.
