NASHVILLE – A Knoxville man who was added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Top Ten Most Wanted fugitive list Thursday morning was captured in Ohio, just hours after being added to the list.
Tyler Ward Enix, 36, who is the father of the subject of an AMBER Alert issued Wednesday, was captured this morning in a rural area of Morrow County, Ohio. A citizen had heard the AMBER Alert on the radio and realized he was behind the vehicle referenced in the alert.

His 2-year-old daughter Brooklynne was recovered and is safe.

On October 28th, Enix’s wife Kimberly was found murdered in her apartment. Neighbors saw Tyler Enix driving away from the apartment in his wife’s car before she was discovered. Brooklynne Enix, the shared daughter of Tyler and Kimberly, had been missing since the incident.
Enix is currently being interviewed by Ohio law enforcement authorities. A current booking photo is not yet available.
