    Angry Tierra Morgan found dead in stream still in her carseat; police looking for father

    Authorities are looking for the father of a New Jersey toddler who was found dead in her car seat, partially submerged in a stream.

    Friends and relatives tell The Asbury Park Press ( on.app.com/v4dyou) that 2-year-old Tierra Morgan lived in Lakehurst with her mother and was having her first court-approved visit with her father in a month.

    They say Arthur Morgan III was to return the girl to her mother, Imani Benton, Monday night.

    ------------------------

    Warshaw said Tierra was found by a group of school-age children secured in a car seat and “partially submerged in a stream on or near the property of Shark River Park” in Wall. An autopsy on the girl is scheduled for today.
    The notification to Benton was a little more than 24 hours since she had met Morgan at a Dollar General store to let him take Tierra for the rest of the day Monday, which was allowed by a court order, said Tierra’s grandmother, Michelle Simmons of Lakehurst. It was Morgan’s first visit with the child in a month, she said. A friend of Benton, Crystal Vadas, said Morgan told Benton that he planned to take Tierra to the park and see a movie, “Happy Feet Two.”

    Oh goodness, those poor children having found the baby that way. I hope counseling will be offered to them to help work through it. As long as I live I'll never understand how the death of a child (or anyone) is the resolution to whatever issue they have going on.

    RIP sweet, Tierra. You deserved so much more.

    The girl's mother, Imani Benton, 24, dropped off the child with her father at a store Monday afternoon for the pair's first visit in a month, Simmons told the paper.

    “He was supposed to be back at 6 and the court order said he could have her until 9 p.m., so she waited until 10 p.m. – and when he didn’t come back, she called the cops,’’ Simmons said.

    Simmons said Morgan was driving a white Cadillac when he picked up Tierra, and Benton had given him cash for gasoline.

    “Imani arranged for her to go see ‘Happy Feet’ at the movies, and she paid for the ticket

    Praying for this child's mother on this day. May the young people who found this little one be able to process this trauma and move forward with happy lives, unmarred by the day they found this baby. May this discovery affect them only insomuch as they grow up to value and adore their own future little ones in the way this ones father should have.
