‘Me And Mia Out This B****:’ Father Informs Facebook Friends Moments Before Shooting Toddler Daughter
In the past, we’ve heard of scorned lovers doing some pretty awful things to spite the object of their affection, but this has got to be the most tragic thing we’ve ever heard. According to NY Daily News, Merrick McCoy of Colorado is accused of shooting his toddler daughter, Mia, in the head before attempting to take his own life as well. In a Facebook post that seemed to reveal his motive for taking his 2-year-old daughter’s life, 22-year-old Merrick taunted his ex-girlfriend and child’s mother, Kimphone ‘Kim’ Phanthavongsa, for her decision to leave him.
“I told u I can’t live without u lol u thought I was joking now me n Mia out this b****. Don’t judge me. Had no choice,” the chilling message reads.
After seeing the post, the toddler’s mother frantically called police, but unfortunately, they were unable to make it to the apartment in time.
Mia’s relatives say that Merrick was very possessive.
“He was the type to say, if you’re not with me, you can’t be with anybody else,” said Mia’s cousin Smally Chham told 9 News.
The child’s aunt, Valeisha McKoy,also took to Facebook, expressing disbelief over her brother’s actions.
“I just found out my brother shot my baby niece. He also shot himself and now on life support. My little Mia I love you so much boo. I was so glad to [be] called your aunt. You were the reason, times I wanted to die, you were on my mind. I wanted to grow up with you. You were my first niece, my brother’s first daughter, my mother’s first grandgirl. She was so beautiful. I’m shaking my brains out. I don’t know if I should be sad or angry. What could I have done different? How could I have loved her more? What’s wrong with my family?” she wrote
“RIP to my baby. I’m sorry I wasn’t there to protect you,” she continued.
Merrick’s current condition is unknown.
We send our prayers to the families impacted by this horrible tragedy.
