Police audio released after officer finds Amber Alert children dead

On Wednesday, officials released the first communication between an Elkhart Police Officer and dispatch after Amber Pasztor drove her two children to the station.

That officer found the children dead.

In the early afternoon hours of September 26th, that Elkhart Police Officer called for back-up from the back of the Elkhart Police Department.

"I'm out on Marion Street, I need assistance en route for two children that are 10-0 in the back of a squad car.”

Those children, 7-year-old Liliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor, found dead in the back of a car driven by Fort Wayne native, their mother, 29-year-old Amber Pasztor.

“She's 10-43, if you can let medics know too, we're going to shut down Marion Street. I need on-call 51 en route."

Responders immediately shut down nearby roads.                                                                                                        

“Elkhart 337 I’m blocking off Marion and East.”

And the investigation took a bizarre turn just moments in to the investigation.

“139 returns to a 1999 Mercedes to a Frank Macomber of Fort Wayne.”

That vehicle belonged to 66-year-old Frank Macomber, who was found dead the following morning in Fort Wayne, just half a mile from where the children were abducted.

Amber Pasztor was charged with two counts of murder and made her first court appearance Monday.

Pasztor pleaded not guilty.

Her trial starts in January of 2017.
