Amber Alert Ends Tragically With Discovery Of Two Dead Children

Police believe a mother with a history of drug problems is behind the deaths of her two children. 

An Amber Alert that was issued in Indiana came to a tragic end when two dead children were found in the back of their mother's car. Amber Pasztor parked near a police station in the town of Elkhart near the Michigan border, and then told police she was the subject of the alert and that the bodies of her two children were in the backseat of her car. Police are also now investigating whether the body of a man found in Fort Wayne is that of her travelling companion, Frank Macomber, 66.

The 29-year-old mother had struggled with drug addiction and lost custody of her three children last year to their father. Over the summer she was arrested for criminal trespassing and invasion of privacy on separate incidents. Police are unsure of what motivated her to abduct two of her children from their grandparents house last week. The cause of death has not been revealed yet pending an autopsy. In fact, the two dead children’s bodies have yet to be formally identified, however, all signs point to them being her missing children Liliana Hernandez, 7, and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor.

After turning herself in Monday, Pasztor cooperated with investigators before being overcome with emotion. The autopsy findings are expected later today. Pasztor has been charged with two preliminary counts of murder.
