ONE of the twin babies who were abducted from a car in December has died, the family said.
Ky’air and Kason Thomas were the subjects of an AMBER Alert after they were kidnapped outside of a pizza restaurant.
Ky’air died on Saturday just before midnight, his family told local CBS affiliate WBNS.
Police were called to reports of an unresponsive child.
The infant was taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital and later died, Sergeant David Scarpitti said, per The Columbus Dispatch.
The death is being investigated, and an autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
The twins’ family released a statement to WBNS on Sunday evening.
“Tonight we are living a nightmare with the community for a second time in less than a month. I’m questioning God, ‘Lord why, Ky’air?’ None of this seems real!” the statement reads.
“I’m begging the community again to have some compassion and empathy while lifting up our family, Kason, and his mother Wilhemnia, LaChez, my son, and the twins’ father in prayer.”
The six-month-old twins were kidnapped from Columbus, Ohio’s Short North Arts District on December 19.
Their mother went into a pizza place to pick up a DoorDash order and left her car unlocked with the twins inside.
Nalah Jackson, 24, was reportedly inside of the pizza place when the mother went inside.
Jackson allegedly exited through a side door and hopped into the unlocked car.
Hours later, Ky’air was found at the Dayton International Airport.
Kason was found safe three days later in Indianapolis.
Jackson was arrested and faces multiple charges in connection to the incident.
She is due back in court on March 20.
