Sumpter Twp. Police seek parents in 4-year-old's death

Posted January 10, 2018

A manhunt is underway for a MI woman and her boyfriend charged in the death of the woman's 4-year-old daughter, who suffered injuries that included severe burns on her arms and legs.

Michigan State Police told WWJ U.S. Marshals located 24-year-old Candice Diaz and 28-year-old Brad Fields on the run near the Georgia-Florida line. Police say they are believed to be driving a black 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier with MI plates DTR1854.

The coroner ruled the death a homicide due to signs of battered child syndrome.

Police say Diaz's 4-year-old daughter Gabby Barrett was discovered unresponsive last week in a mobile home in Wayne County's Sumpter Township.

Gabrielle had obvious severe burns about her extremities and was taken to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Once there, cops reportedly found Diaz in distress and a dog suffering from a gunshot wound, according to the report.

Police announced Monday a manhunt is on for Diaz and Fields. Officers had to storm the home on May 20, 2016, after receiving a report of a gunman barricaded inside following a domestic assault.

Diaz was able to escape to the community clubhouse to call police, according to the report. It's unclear whether Fields is the child's father. Fields fled the scene, but was later picked up on domestic violence charges. She told investigators she wanted to confess to owning a firearm with an "obliterated" serial number and an unregistered firearm, which were the weapons police recovered from the home.

Barrett spoke to WJBK about his daughter Sunday night at a candlelight vigil held in her memory.

Diaz pleaded guilty to two charges: possession of prescription forms and altering ID marks on a firearm, online court records show.
