A man in Tennessee has been arrested for killing his two-day-old child’s mother and for causing his baby’s death. This is according to Tennessee police authorities that said the victim’s mother confessed to them.

The suspect was identified as Brandon Isabelle who is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, murder in the perpetration of aggravated kidnapping, especially aggravated kidnapping, and tampering or fabricating evidence, police said.

The child’s mother was identified as Danielle Hoyle, 27. Police said that Isabelle admitted to luring the infant’s mother to the area where she was later found shot to death. His daughter Kennedy Hoyle’s remains have not yet been found since the search had to be paused late Wednesday night due to inclement weather.

The affidavit arrest stated that he took Hoyle’s car with Baby Kennedy inside to the north end of Mud Island where the Wolf River enters the Mississippi River and threw the 2-day-old infant into the water followed by the gun he used to kill her mother.

Isabelle was detained Wednesday afternoon while officials were searching for his daughter. Around 7 p.m. Wednesday, the Memphis Police Department announced he was charged with the murder of 27-year-old Danielle Hoyle and 2-day-old Kennedy Hoyle.

An AMBER Alert has been issued by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to find the body of Kennedy Hoyle on Wednesday morning. Police said that she was last seen, she was in the presence of her mother and wearing a black and white polka dot onesie with pink pants.

Family members said that they last heard from Danielle Hoyle on Tuesday night as she was driving the baby to the hospital.

“I just want my grandbaby, and I want my daughter to come home. That’s all I want. At least tell me what’s going on,” Hoyle’s mother said. “They said they got like 50 police looking for her. My thing is everybody should be looking for her. She’s a newborn.”

Police took Isabelle into custody Wednesday after his testimony. He is being held without bond and is scheduled to have his first arraignment hearing on Friday.
