I-Team: Family identifies girl, 12, allegedly killed by her

Identity of the 12 year old girl who police say was killed by her own father.

According to the family, her name is navaeh maddox... her first name is heaven spelt backwards.

I talked with a couple of family members on the phone.... they were extremely emotional - as you can imagine.... they are dealing with the death of a 12 year old girl, her mother and brother are identified as victims of violent attacks - they're in the hospital, and so is the suspect.

This is a photo of neveah with her mother tishia... according to an arrest report, marcus maddox called 9-1-1 sunday evening from a northeast valley siegel suites... the operator could hear him say sorry...and i love you baby...followed by a gunshot.

Police say they found tishia badly beaten with skull fractures and brain trauma.

And that marcus had shot himself in the head... the next day...nearly 18 hours later...police discovered their children beaten and stabbed at a budget suites south of the las vegas strip... 12 year old nevaeh did not survive.

And it turns out - according to police - she had recently reported to a school counselor allegations against her father of a sexual nature and child protective services and police were involved.

Now - her mother and brother are in the hospital - along with marcus who is technically under arrest and also charged.

((vanessa murphy)) >> the family has a gofundme page set up.

Also - there are questions about why it took police so long to find the children who they say maddox had left for dead.

The department says it believes there were possible missteps...and it's investigating internally.

Aside from that - i can tell you the question detectives are asking as they investigate this crime - how could a father and husband do this to his own family?

Back to you.// ((denise valdez)) >>> the rush to see loved ones is underway
