(Newser) – A 5-year-old Canadian girl missing following her mother's murder is believed dead. The Calgary Herald reports authorities found a body believed to be that of Taliyah Marsman in a rural field on Thursday. Police believe she was dead before an Amber Alert for her went out early Tuesday. Her mother, 34-year-old Sara Baillie, was found dead in their home late Monday.

People reports 46-year-old Edward Downey has been charged with murdering Baillie and Taliyah. Police say Downey, who also goes by Edward Simmons, was a family friend who had an "extensive criminal history." He was apprehended Wednesday. Police still don't know why Baillie and Taliyah were killed.
