TACOMA — A Tacoma-area man called 911 and said he had killed his daughter and was going to kill himself.

Pierce County deputies rushed to the Woodland Park apartments about 11 a.m. Wednesday and found the girl dead and the man semi-conscious with a binding around his neck.

Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer says deputies revived the 26-year-old man and arrested him for investigation of homicide.

Troyer says the girl may have been strangled or suffocated, although the cause of death remains to be determined by the medical examiner’s office.

No one else was at home at the time. The mother apparently was at work and was called to the scene.

Troyer says the man may have been recently released from a hospital after treatment for mental health issues.
