Officers managed to catch the falling toddler
"We're trying to make sense of all the factors that led up to this senseless taking of life", Capps said.
It all began about two decades ago.
Steven and his former wife had Katie in 1998.
"This is a awful tragedy that nobody foresaw", Rick Friedman, an attorney who had been representing Steven Pladl, told WNCN.
November 2016: Steven and Alyssa separate.
According to a 911 call obtained by WTIC-News, his mother called to report he had admitted the killings to her.
Alyssa Pladl no longer lives at the home near Richmond where the relationship started, and she told WRAL News by phone Friday that she doesn't want to discuss Thursday's shootings. But on her 18th birthday, she contacted Steven and her mother in hopes of reconnecting.
Police arrested her father and charged him with attempted murder.
The father, with the assistance of a 35-year-old woman identified as the toddler's mother, had climbed onto the roof of the last shack still standing with his child after about 150 residents had urged him to do so, some chanting: "They will do nothing to it [shack]". New Milford Police Department put out a notice to area police agencies to be on the lookout for the suspect's vehicle described as a light blue mini-van with North Carolina registration.
Both were charged with felony incest. Steven Pladl's bond conditions also prevented him from living in the North Carolina home he shared with his daughter. She was adopted by another family and lived out of state.
Port Elizabeth police spokesman Captain Andre Beetge said social workers would be called in.
On Wednesday night, police said, Steven Pladl asked his mother if he could take the child back to his home in Knightdale, saying mother he and the baby were going to Skype with Katie Pladl that evening.
Friedman said there wasn't a suspicion that the child was in peril.
He then drove to New Milford, Connecticut, 600 miles away, and shot dead Katie and her adoptive dad as they sat in a pickup truck, before making his way across the state line. Warrants said the two young children were told by Steven to refer to Katie as step-mom, even though she's actually their sister. She said she believed Steven brainwashed and manipulated Katie. Police confirmed he had killed himself in his vehicle after driving across state lines into ny.
