The sex offender charged with kidnapping and murdering a 10-year-old girl is now linked to the mysterious death of a woman found just a few days earlier. Cops have yet to specify why Antonio Tenelle Monroe was allegedly with Natalie Taye Negray, 24, before he left town and killed young Destiny Renee Huggins.

The child’s death rocked the city of Rockford, Illinois. Police there said Monroe kidnapped Huggins while she was playing with her 6-year-old sister Saturday. The younger girl managed to escape back home and tell their mother what happened, according to cops. The mother called 911. Tragically, another man soon flagged down police.

He said he found a child unresponsive outside a home in the 1200 block of 9th Avenue.

“Upon arrival, officers located the child and began administrating CPR,” officers said. “Rockford Fire Department arrived on scene and transported the child to a local hospital where she was pronounced deceased.”

“SHE WAS JUST A 10 YEAR OLD PRINCESS!!” stated a GoFundMe to support the mother. “SHE WAS MURDERED!!”
