911 call released in Little Rock triple homicide

There are new details about Tuesday’s triple homicide that claimed the life of 24-year-old Mariah Cunningham and her two children, 5-year-old Alayah Fisher and 3-year-old Elijah Fisher.

A 911 tape, obtained by KATV, details the call made by Sheba Cunningham, Mariah’s grandmother, just minutes after she discovered the family of three dead at their Rosewood Apartment home.

In the 911 call, you can hear Cunningham screaming, "Oh Lord, Lord have mercy."

Hours after that horrific discovery, Mariah's vehicle, which was missing from the scene, was recovered at Autumn Park Apartments at 43 Warren Drive, 10 minutes from the location of the homicide. Right now, it's unknown how the missing car is connected to the case.

On Wednesday, the children’s father, Charles Fisher, who had an outstanding warrant prior to the triple homicide, was brought in for questioning by police.

Fisher was arrested and booked into the Pulaski County Jail early Wednesday on charges unrelated to Tuesday’s homicide.

The Little Rock School District confirmed to KATV that Alayliah attended kindergarten at Wakefield Elementary School and her brother Elijah attended a preschool in the district.

"It's hurtful and disturbing. We lost the life of two young kids and a mother that are somehow attached to our district. We tried to get additional support at the sites in case counseling efforts are needed,” said Little Rock School District Superintendent Michael Poore.

No suspect information has been released as the investigation continues.
