Boy missing as killer suspect held

An "armed and dangerous" suspect in a double killing and kidnapping in the US has been captured, but the toddler he snatched is still missing.

Malcolm Crowell was held after a nationwide Amber Alert was issued for two-year-old Isaih Perez, Massachusetts State police spokesman Dave Procopio told WPRI-TV. He said Isaih is still missing.

Earlier, police were called to a home in Johnston, where they found the bodies of two people and discovered Isaih was missing.

Police had said Crowell, 22, should be considered armed and dangerous.

Investigators are still working to determine the relationships among Crowell, the boy and the two homicide victims.

Deputy Police Chief Daniel Parrillo said officers determined that the victims were killed between 4.30 and 5am local time and that Crowell then fled the home with the child.

"We don't believe the child was harmed, and we're just hoping that he will be safely returned," Mr Parrillo said.
