Father of missing 1-year-old, boyfriend of slain mother considered suspect in Ansonia case
Police have named the father of a missing 1-year-old and boyfriend of her slain mother a suspect in both cases.
Police say Jose Morales, 43, has been in custody for nearly two weeks on unrelated charges, but is now considered a suspect in the Ansonia homicide of Christine Holloway and disappearance of Vanessa Morales.
The top priority is finding Vanessa, according to police, adding they are not "looking to arrest or begin criminal proceedings against whoever has her."
The search began Dec. 2 when police responded to a Myrtle Avenue home, where they found Christine Holloway beaten to death and Morales missing.
Morales has since become the subject of an Amber Alert.
Jose Morales is set to appear in court in New Haven Wednesday on the weapons charges.
