Vengeful Monster Merrick McKoy Takes Facebook Picture Moments Before Killing Infant Daughter And Shooting Himself

Merrick McKoy, 22, is a monster. In a disgusting display of unbelievable cruelty, McKoy posted an adorable picture of himself and his 19-month-old daughter Mia, just moments before he shot her in the head and killed her. He wrote I told u I can’t live without u lol u thought I was joking now me n Mia out this b----.’He then turned the gun on himself. Right now, he is alive and in critical condition. What father would do this? A father who only cares about himself and seeking revenge on his ex-lover. McKoy is a cold-blooded killer, and the worst kind of killer; a father who mercilessly gunning down his own baby girl to spite her mother.

Merrick McKoy wanted to make the mother of his infant daughter suffer. To take the life of another for one's selfish desire is unjustifiable. There is no way to make this right. If anything, this is an indictment on America and social media. While social media can be a very useful tool, it is also reveals the worst about our sin-sick human nature. People desperately seek attention in any way, shape, or form. In the most cruel irony, a young man takes a "selfie" with his infant daughter, and then viciously ends her life, before shooting himself. How does it get more sickening than this? It can't, especially knowing this was all to get back at the baby's mother.

 Grieving family members tell 7NEWS a man took a picture of his baby on Monday, posted it on Facebook, then shot and killed the girl and then shot himself.

The mother of the baby called Westminster police about 9:35 a.m. and said when she woke up, her ex-boyfriend was standing over her with a handgun.

The mother, Kimphone "Kim" Phanthavongsa, 21, told police there was an altercation and she ran out of her apartment at 7030 Stuart St. She called police from a neighbor’s apartment, saying her ex-boyfriend, Merrick McKoy, 22, had a gun and he was inside her apartment with their child.

Westminster Police Investigator Wayne Read said when officers arrived, they heard gunshots. He said they found a child and an adult male with gunshot wounds.

In that moment, 19-month-old Mia McKoy-Phanthavongsa was dead, shot in cold blood by her father. McKoy then turned the gun on himself. If he was going to commit suicide, why didn't he just shoot himself instead of taking the life of his baby? This is unforgivable. This is no loving father.

"She just learned how to walk," said a tearful Vannatda Sivixai. "What an angel. Whenever she smiled it was bright."

Police said McKoy had an active restraining order prohibiting him from being at that apartment.

McKoy's Facebook page shows a photo of the man and the girl posted just before the shooting. Two other posts after the photo said, "Ima miss stall lol [sic]" and "Don't judge me had no choice [sic]."

The Facebook messages posted right before the crime are haunting and horrific. mckoy20n-7-webThey show that Merrick McKoy was a man with a singular mission: to kill his baby girl and then shoot himself; all because of his anger toward the baby's mother. Don't judge him? He had a choice, and he chose the most cruel punishment for everyone involved. McKoy only cared about himself, and he will surely pay for this crime, whether he lives or dies. Baby killers aren't popular anywhere.

A neighbor who lives in the same complex said McKoy was apparently angry that Kim broke up with him.

She said Kim told her that McKoy threatened her.

"He would just say that he wanted to be with her and if he can't be with her, nobody can be with her," the neighbor said. "I'm shocked. It's hard to believe that someone you know would do something like that."

McKoy had been charged with trespassing, harassment, and burglary in September, but to resort to murdering your own child is mind-blowing. To take her life to get back at her mother shows a complete disregard for life. McKoy is a psychopath, and his prior behavior demonstrated that he was a man ready to explode, but no one could have imagined this would happen.

Police spoke to McCoy's brother, who drove to the scene Monday afternoon.  The brother declined to comment about the situation.

The girl's grandmother broke down after learning about the shooting, and again when she learned that Mia did not survive.

Merrick McKoy did the most selfish thing imaginable. In taking the life of his baby, he cheated everyone out of seeing the child grow up. He took a baby from her mother in the most senseless and brutal way possible, and he also will force people who are innocent to feel forever guilty for not doing something to stop this; as if anyone can stop a monster. The only monster here is Merrick McKoy.

  • nikki

  • BrittBrittRoss

    Looking at this picture give me chills, what a psycho!!!

  • Joannepatriot

    "Indictment of America and social media" ? How short-sighted. This is an indictment of the progressives' policies that have taken God out of schools and public, promoted single-family homes via entitlements, told people that they are just monkeys, there's no God, etc. Now, we are reaping the results. I'm not in favor of promoting a myth, but creation, biology, DNA, physics, chemistry--all point to intelligent design--a Creator. God and His Son, Jesus Christ are our only hope.

  • Jewely

    The baby looks scared. Be careful who you have your babies with!

  • rugvendor

    Burn in hell for all eternity ...... oh lORD, SHOW NO MERCY FOR THIS MAD MAN.

  • GibbyD

    Now tell me again there is no literal burning everlasting Hell for people like this. Yeah , I did not think so . He had a chance to escape that judgement he will soon enter but instead he chose himself , his sin and his selfishness . The child is with The LORD Jesus , the dad is about to enter into an awful horrible indescribable painful torture that will burn him for ever and ever. There is only one escape for any of us though while we have breath and that is to , "..repent toward God and place our faith and trust toward The LORD Jesus Christ " ( Acts 20:21 )KJB.

    This aint a race thing. It's a progressive thing. Let a kid (any color) grow up thinking he's about something and has the right to take what he wants, this is what you get. Never tell him he's wrong or displine him because you'll hurt his self esteem and you get a psychopath 100% of the time.
    Never teach him anything in school and when he gets old enough to drop out, make sure he's dumber than when he started cause that makes him more dependent of government which will insure a democratic vote for life.
    Oh yeah I almost forgot. Rely only on restraining orders and never let a woman have a gun for self defense cause you wouldn't want the psychopathic, democrat voting, food stamp collecting, sub human, to get shot.

  • rassroll

    I hope he didn't shoot himself in the brain, there'd be no more damage than before. That would take a helluva shot though. Imagine the bullet actually hitting a brain the size of a pea...

  • Lady Patriot

    Since abortion became legal, babies and children in general have become throw-away merchandise.

  • Marlin208

    What is it about blacks and killing. If he couldn't live without his girlfriend then shoot yourself. How in the world can you look your sweet little daughter in the face and then shoot her in the head.

    This is a good case for hanging in public.

    • Paolon

      Why did you mention black? You need to grow up.

      Look up Josh Powell, that should make you know that this is not a race thing.

      Unbelievable stupidity.

    • Marlin208

      Hey dumba**, the article was about a black man. Are you blind as well as stupid?
      I am also someone who lived near Chicago and if that isn't the black murdering capitol of the world I don't know what is.
      You need to get a life or get off of sites like this.

    • justme

      oh that's right white people don't kill. gee i forget things like this. They don't kill each other and family members nor do they commit suicide. I really got to start understanding these things. memo to self, whites do not kill, only blacks, those other people are just blacks disguising themselves as white.

  • Wildshot

    Yeah, if he lives he will doubtlessly be mentally incompacitated so the courts will disallow trial or punishment because of that mental deficiency. So he will get away with it, however living a life as a vegetable may not be such a bad punishment, except we will have to pay for his keep. Inconsiderate scumbag

  • Mari Upthegrove

    I'm sure the doctors are doing everything possible to save this scumbag. The police should have let him bleed out.

  • DontTreadOnMe11

    You have to look at the silver lining in this story, at least he killed himself, COWARD!

    • freedomringsforall

      well as I read the article I think he is still alive and in critical condition.

    • DontTreadOnMe11

      Sorry, you're correct, I missed that, but the COWARD part still applies.

    • BigMamaTEA

      I want him to live, paralyzed, mind intact, so he can remember this for the rest of his natural life. Or, in prison and let the population take care of him. Most don't take kindly to kid-killers.

    • freedomringsforall

      Oh yeah I wasn't criticizing or anything I agree with your basic sentiments.
      I just mean to be helpfully informative.
      I don't like it when people pick and criticize on these blogs for silly little mistakes so that was not my intent.
      just wanted you to know.

    • DontTreadOnMe11

      Not a problem, I scanned the article and then posted. I appreciate the info and didn't take it as a criticism.

    • USA Lover

      He's not dead yet, but very well should be
