Q105 DJ's daughter murdered, her toddler was in home

Tampa, Florida - His friends and colleagues call him the life of the party, the one who is always bringing joy to others. Dave Morgan is known on radio station Q105 as "Flash," a man who delivers happiness to countless listeners on-air.

But, on this day, sadly he is a grieving father, devastated over the murders of his 21-year-old daughter Chelsea Sizemore and her boyfriend Eric Salabirria found dead in their Tampa home Wednesday night. 

"It's a parent's worst nightmare. I know it's cliche, but it's how I feel. I'm asking 'why me?'," said Morgan.

Tampa detectives tell us Chelsea's two-year-old little girl was found inside watching television in the bedroom.

So many questions remain in this tragic case. Who would do this and why? There was no forced entry into the home.

Chelsea's father shared his grief on Facebook Thursday morning saying, in part, "It is with the saddest heart that I have to report that my youngest daughter Chelsea was killed last night in what appears to be a home invasion ... I am living a parent's worst nightmare as I type this message out." 

It is a message that hit home with fans, colleagues and friends.

"He's the life of the party," said colleague and friend, Mason Dixon from Mason Dixon in the Morning.  

"I'm a father. It breaks your heart. We want to help him in any way that we can." 

He added, "What they're going to go through as they continue to get information as to who did this, why and everything else that goes along with it...It's going to hurt for a long, long time."

According to detectives, these murders were not random. Police are still searching for the suspect and a motive.

The couple's child is staying with a family member.
