On June 5, Milford Police Department responded to a report of a man bleeding from the head in the 500 block of DuPont Highway. The investigation led them to an address in Brookstone Trace where they discovered the bodies of a 31-year old woman and 3-year old girl.

Davis Truong, 31, was arrested later that evening, charged with two counts of first degree murder and two counts of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony. He is being held with a $2.2 million cash bond. He will appear in court on June 13 for a preliminary hearing.

A neighbor’s doorbell footage showed Truong coming to their door, covered in blood, around 4:30 AM but he was gone by the time the neighbor got to the door.

The victims were Mercedes Ortiz, 31, who was Truang’s significant other and Aloni Truong, 3, his daughter.

“The Milford Police Department would like to thank the Delaware Department of Justice, Delaware Victim’s Services and Delaware Division of Family Services for their assistance with this investigation,” Sgt. Timothy Maloney, Public Information Officer, said. “The Milford Police Department is also grateful for several area non-profit organizations who have stepped up and helped the victim’s family during this difficult time.”
