A fired Baltimore cop, his two daughters and his suspended accomplice were all found dead after a four-day manhunt.
Former Baltimore County police officer Robert Vicosa, his six- and seven-year-old daughters, Aaminah and Gianna, and Sgt. Tia Bynum were discovered inside an SUV in Smithsburg, dead from gunshot wounds, reported WJZ .
Vicosa, who was fired from the force in August, was being sought in connection with kidnapping, armed carjacking, simple assault, and robbery charges, according to the news outlet.
Vicosa and Bynum executed a plan to torture Vicosa’s estranged spouse at her home, according to court documents obtained by WJZ.
It was put into place last Saturday, when the pair drugged her, tied her up and left her in the house for hours, all while both children were home.
Vicosa and Bynum then took off with the girls, according to the court docs. Vicosa warned his ex not to go to law enforcement but she ended up reporting the incident on Sunday.
By Thursday, Pennsylvania State Police were in pursuit of a car that matched the description of the suspect vehicle. The chase ended with the SUV running off the road.
Crisis negotiators arrived but were unable to make out what was happening inside the car because of a “thick layer of smoke” in the interior.
Vicosa, Bynum and one of the girls were pronounced dead at the scene. The other child was taken to hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.
