Minnesota corrections officials say a Twin Cities man convicted in 2007 of killing his 1-year-old daughter is a fugitive after dodging his highly-supervised release.

Authorities say 29-year-old Beauford Jackson III slipped free of his monitoring late last week after serving nine years in prison for second-degree murder. Jackson pleaded guilty in the death of 15-month-old Destiny Jackson. He was on the strictest form of supervised release since May 2016.

Minnesota Department of Corrections spokesperson Sarah Fitzgerald said that Jackson had been released from prison in Minnesota to supervision in the state of Texas, and it was in Texas that he failed to report to his agent.

She said his last known location was Fort Worth, Texas.
