The father who posted a chilling message and a picture of his 19-month-old daughter on Facebook before killing her and injuring himself has died.
Merrick McKoy of Colorado shot and killed his daughter Mia on November 18 after an altercation with the toddler’s mother before turning the gun on himself.
In one post he said: ‘I told u I can’t live without u lol u thought I was joking now me n Mia out this b****.’
The last post on his Facebook page, under the name Type R Merrick (f** Kim), read: ‘Don’t judge me had no choice.’
In a frantic 911 call, police were told McKoy was in the apartment with Mia and a gun. As police rushed to the apartment McKoy shot Mia in the head and turned the gun on himself.
When police arrived, McKoy was still alive. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he died days later.
The coroner said an autopsy will be conducted to determine McKoy’s cause and manner of death. They have not released any additional details regarding his death as the investigation is ongoing.
