The body was discovered around 7pm. On Friday night, a member of the State Department of Public Works, who was driving home, Milwaukee police chief Alfonso Morales said at a press conference on Saturday morning.
"He called this tip to the local police department … and right next to his shoulder was a blanket wrapped in a child's corpse and we believe it's Noelani's," he said.
Noelani was allegedly abducted Monday by her father Dariaz Higgins, 34, after he shot her mother Sierra Robinson, 24, this afternoon.
According to the police, Robinson was found on the driveway outside a residential building. She said she was shot several times and declared dead at the scene.
Morales said Saturday there would be an investigation into the death of the child found 1
"What we can say is, we believe that death did not happen within the last 24 hours," said Morales. "She has been there for some time, which is the time of the suspect when he was in Minnesota in this area."
Higgins was arrested Wednesday by Milwaukee Police Department officials, department officials said in a statement. A second unnamed person was arrested with Higgins for "housing and supporting a fugitive," police said.
Morales said that an investigation will determine "where to go … the types of fees we will be looking for".
