Tragedy struck less than three weeks after the father proudly shared a photo of himself and his baby daughter Eleanor on social media. This devastating incident has left the community in shock, with Sheriff Fred describing it as one of the most heart-wrenching and senseless crimes in recent memory. He emphasized the stark reality of domestic violence during a press conference held to address the situation.

The 26-year-old father, identified as Patrick, has been taken into custody and charged with murder. The horrifying incident unfolded during an early morning argument between Patrick and his wife, Megan, at their home.

In a disturbing turn of events, Patrick fired a crossbow at Megan while she held their 3-week-old daughter, resulting in tragic consequences.

The crossbow bolt struck baby Eleanor in the upper torso, exiting near the armpit and tragically ending her life. Megan sustained non-life-threatening injuries from the attack.

During the altercation, Patrick not only fired the weapon but also attempted to prevent Megan from calling 911 before ultimately fleeing the scene.

Just a week prior, he had posted on social media about his commitment to protect his family and friends at all costs. Despite the efforts of emergency responders who arrived promptly, they couldn’t save baby Eleanor, and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The father now faces serious charges, including Murder in the 2nd Degree, Attempted Murder in the 2nd Degree, and Criminal Contempt in the 1st Degree.

The Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation, and Patrick remains in custody without bail, awaiting arraignment. This heartbreaking incident serves as a stark reminder of the urgent need to address and prevent domestic violence.
