DETROIT – The father of one of two missing Detroit children has been arrested in Atlanta, according to jail records.

Police found Erin Justice at a family member's house there. He is currently being held at Fulton County Jail in Georgia. 


According to jail records, he has been charged with being a fugitive from justice by the FBI. 

A medical examiner has determined Alicia Fox, the children's mother whose decomposed body was found in a vacant house this week in Detroit, died from multiple gunshots.


Authorities continue to search for Fox's children, 6-year-old Kaylah Hunter and 8-month-old Kristian Justice.


Fox's children have different fathers. Investigators said they had been in contact with both men.

Local 4 has learned that a search Wednesday night at a home on Ardmore Street in Detroit turned up traces of blood.
