Ohio man abducts girlfriend’s infant daughter, resulting in tragic crash and baby’s death

A tragic incident unfolded in Ohio when a man abducted his girlfriend’s 7-month-old daughter, leading to a high-speed chase that ended in a devastating crash. The baby girl tragically lost her life as a result. The suspect, identified as Johnathan Baker, 23, took the infant following an argument with the girl’s mother. Disturbingly, Baker had informed his girlfriend that he was feeling suicidal and homicidal, even claiming to have killed the baby. This prompted the mother to contact the police, expressing her concerns and believing that Baker was armed.

North Baltimore Police swiftly issued an alert to locate Baker and his yellow Camaro. This description was provided by an off-duty officer who spotted the vehicle. A police pursuit followed, which led officers to the city of Tiffin where they attempted to pull Baker over. However, he accelerated at a high rate of speed and ultimately crashed into a house. The impact was so severe that it knocked the house off its foundation. Fortunately, no one was inside the residence at the time.

Officers wasted no time in breaking open the back window of the Camaro to rescue the injured infant. The baby was found bleeding from the head and struggling to breathe. Emergency responders immediately provided first aid on the scene before rushing both the baby and Baker to Tiffin Mercy Hospital by helicopter. Tragically, the baby girl succumbed to her injuries shortly after arriving at the hospital. Baker, on the other hand, remains in critical condition.

Detectives discovered a loaded firearm and two spent cartridges in the Camaro. However, it remains unclear whether Baker is the biological father of the baby that he abducted. An ongoing investigation of the events leading up to this tragic incident will help to uncover the details behind the child’s untimely death.
