The Philaldephia Police Department says 2-year-old King Hill is still missing and they've charged his babysitter, 24-year-old Tianna Parks, with his murder.

According to a press release, "An investigation led by Philadelphia Police and FBI that yielded cell phone and video evidence has concluded that Hill, who was last seen on July 7th in Strawberry Mansion, is dead."

Parks is currently facing charges of murder, endangering the welfare of children, interference with the custody of children, abuse of a corpse, unsworn falsification to authorities, false reports to law enforcement authorities, obstruction of justice and tampering with evidence.

This precious baby’s family and community deserve to know how he died. They deserve the opportunity to bury and mourn him with dignity.

District Attorney Lawrence Kasner

District Attorney Lawrence Kasner said, “The death of King Hill is an unbearable tragedy that is compounded by Tianna Parks’ actions. This precious baby’s family and community deserve to know how he died. They deserve the opportunity to bury and mourn him with dignity. This child deserved so much better in life. My office will continue to work alongside the Philadelphia Police and FBI to seek justice for his death.”

Investigators are still hoping someone comes forward with information on this case and can help lead them directly to Hill.
