Sumpter Twp. couple wanted for murder of girl, 4, arrested in Georgia

Candice Renea Diaz and Brad Edward Fields

A Wayne County couple wanted in the murder of a 4-year-old girl has been captured by federal authorities. Fields was also charged as a habitual offender.

The Sumpter Township Police Department said Monday they've been searching for the couple since Saturday. Family members were administering CPR.

Officers arrived at a mobile home park in Belleville on New Year's Day finding the four-year-old girl unresponsive. On Jan. 3, the local medical examiner ruled that her death was a homicide, pointing to signs of numerous traumatic injuries and indications of battered child syndrome.

Gabby's family has set up a GoFundMe account for funeral costs. His first time there was Sunday night, for a candlelight vigil.

"She didn't have to pass the way she did but I hope we get justice for her really soon", Kyle Barrett, Gabby's father, told WJBK. "I know we may not have a lot of information at all, but, it just hurts", said Barrett.

Police also uncovered drug paraphernalia and a cache of weaponry.

Barrett's grandmother, Deborah Barret said: "She was a ball of joy".

Gabrielle Barrett had an upbeat personality and loved the movie Frozen, said her grandfather, Jerry Barrett, 47. "She would run around the house when we had her, always with a big ol' smile on her face".

According to neighbors, Child Protective Services had been to the home several times over the years, but the children were never taken from the home.

Police said Diaz and Fields are believed to be driving a black 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier with the MI plate DTR 1854.

WDIV reported that the girl's January 1 death was not the first time police have been called to the couple's mobile home.

Meanwhile, Diaz and her boyfriend, Fields, fled the scene and are now on the run.

Diaz pleaded guilty to two charges: possession of prescription forms and altering ID marks on a firearm, online court records show. Anyone with any information is urged to contact the U.S. Marshal Detroit Fugitive Apprehension team at 313-234-5656, or contact the Sumpter Township Police at 734-461-4833 ext.
