Chickasha PD search for person of interest in death of mother, unborn child


CHICKASHA, Okla. (KFOR) – The Chickasha Police Department is searching for a person of interest in the death of a mother and her unborn child.

“If you knew her, you knew love. If you see him, please, please I’ll give you everything in my soul. I’ll give you everything I have, just to just to bring him to justice,” Alisa Brown said on Monday. 

Brown and her family are mourning the loss of 37-year-old Ashley Cannon, a young mom who was pregnant with a baby girl, Nala, and was due in just three weeks. 

“We won’t sleep and we won’t rest until it’s done. He didn’t silence her. All he did was wake up her even louder,” Carmela Brown, Cannon’s sister, said. 

Cannon was found dead inside her apartment on Monday. Her unborn baby also did not survive. 

“Officers responded to a call of a possible death. When officers arrived on scene, they were made aware of two small children who ran to the neighbors’ house and told the neighbor that they thought their mom was dead,” Detective Lauren Jewell said. 

That neighbor found Ashley’s body. 

Police are looking for a person of interest, who’s name right now is a mystery. 

“It is our belief that the person is the father of the baby,” Jewell said. “Due to the situation with the baby, we believe that the person of interest is married and so that was not very spoken of.”

Officers are working round the clock, following up on possible leads. 

Jewell said they’ve already served 10 search warrants so far during their search for the person of interest. 

“This is a horrific and heinous crime and we will not rest until we find the person that did this,” Jewell said. 

“Domestic violence is not a joke. Please share for my sister. She deserves this. She’s the sweetest, kindest person you would have ever met, please share, share, share,” Alisa Brown said. 

Anyone who can identify this person of interest, or anyone with any information is asked to contact the Detective Jewell at the Chickasha Police Department.
