Louisiana Man Arrested in Connection with Triple Tragedy and Possible Human Trafficking Case

A Louisiana man, Daniel Callihan, was arrested after a mother and her 4-year-old daughter were found dead, and another daughter was discovered alive in Mississippi, in what may be a human trafficking case.

Bollywood Fever: A Louisiana man was arrested Thursday after a 35-year-old mother was found dead and her two abducted daughters were later discovered in Mississippi – one dead and the other alive – in what investigators suspect may be a human trafficking case.

The suspect, 36-year-old Daniel Callihan, is accused of “committing brutal and heinous acts of violence,” including the killings of Callie Brunett and her 4-year-old daughter, as stated by the sheriff’s office in Tangipahoa Parish, located north of New Orleans.

Jackson investigators reported that the wooded neighborhood where the girls were found showed signs of potential human trafficking activity, including small animal cages.

“Our hearts are with all those affected by this tragic event. These are unspeakable crimes,” parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards expressed in a social media post. “We ask everyone to keep Callie’s family in your prayers.”

Earlier on Thursday, an Amber Alert was issued for Brunett’s abducted daughters, ages 4 and 6, following the discovery of the mother’s body in her home, according to Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office Chief Jimmy Travis.

After hours of searching, law enforcement in Jackson, Mississippi – approximately a 2-hour drive from Tangipahoa – located the suspect and found a “tragic scene,” according to Jackson Police Chief Joseph Wade.

Following a brief pursuit, Callihan was arrested in a wooded area near a house. The body of the 4-year-old was found unburied in the woods behind the home, Wade said. The other sister was found injured and was taken to a hospital.

“It’s very, very disturbing to me as a police chief and as a father to witness and see what I just saw,” Wade commented on the scene.

Given the signs of potential human trafficking at the location, Jackson authorities have contacted the human trafficking divisions of the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and Hinds County, Wade added.

“We’re going to work this crime scene with a scalpel,” he said. “It’s going to take a long time to process it.”

Many questions remain unanswered, including why Callihan allegedly took the children to Jackson and the reason for the child’s death.

Although Callihan had not been interviewed by Thursday evening, investigators believe he lives in Louisiana and had an intermittent relationship with Brunett, Travis stated. When the Amber Alert was issued, it indicated that a man, later identified as Callihan, was wanted “for questioning for a domestic violence incident, which occurred at the time of the abduction and resulted in a homicide.”

Investigators’ top priorities will be to interview Callihan and care for the surviving 6-year-old victim, Travis said.

“She’s been through something that most of us, hopefully, never ever get to experience. And she is going to have to spend the rest of her life living with this,” the chief remarked.
