    He killed his 6 year old daughter. I wonder why it's so hush hush. I'm guessing they haven't been able to alert the mom yet? So sad.

    Edited by me. That's only what the rumors are at this point. I agree it's strange they are keeping the victim's name quiet.

    See here for map of the parkway: https://www.nps.gov/blri/planyourvisit/maps.htm

    Mile Marker 393 is close to the intersection of HWY 191 on the map: http://www.blueridgeparkway.org/v.php?pg=827
    393.6: NC 191 Crossover. 6 miles north to Asheville. 20 miles south to Hendersonville.
    I have vacationed in this area before and it is beautiful.

    It's actually now been updated that he's killed his daughter. You can never really go by social media, but he seemed to dote on her very much. I am understanding this world less and less.

    Should this be moved to "crimes against children"? I use Tapatalk and I am forum challenged.

    A Leicester man has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of his daughter, a kindergartner at Johnston Elementary, who was killed along a popular section of the Blue Ridge Parkway.Buncombe County sheriff’s investigators charged Seth Willis Pickering, 36, in the death of 6-year-old Lila Marie Pickering.

    He was arrested along the Blue Ridge Parkway near Brevard Road at about 7 p.m. Friday, according to an arrest report.

    About an hour earlier, deputies learned Lila had been taken by her father, and were in the process documenting the case to trigger an Amber Alert, said Capt. John Elkins of the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office.

    Ashley Pickering said her daughter had been in the care of protective services.

    “We had a deputy at a home in west Buncombe County after we received a report that the father had taken the child without permission,” Elkins said. “As the deputy was there, we learned of the homicide.”

    This sounds like a "if I can't have her neither can you" type of custody case. How sad. Please don't let this little darling have suffered too much. He's not a father, he's an animal. My heart goes out to her Mommy and relatives.
