More information coming out about the father of one of McCormack's children

Casillas Interview

COMMERCE, Okla. - McCormack is the woman authorities believe was found dead near a highway in McDonald County late last month. Mahamed is apparently the father of one of McCormack's children. Information continues to come out about the three children and who their father's are.

Miguel Casillas says he and Jessica McCormick were together for several years before domestic issues arose in their relationship. Casillas says "She and I had obvious issues, but we tried to work through them at some point, and we were talking about them, but we just separated eventually."

That was after they found out McCormick was pregnant with their daughter, Siah. Casillas says he was there for her birth, and signed the birth certificate. He had gone to file a missing persons report on Siah after he hadn't heard from her or Jessica in quite some time. He was at work, when he got the news of what happened. Casillas says "I freaked out, I freaked out inside, I couldn't do anything, but I freaked out." 

He learned that authorities said Mahamud Mahamed had taken all three kids to Des Moines and left them with an acquaintance from work, and later a note, saying Mahamed couldn't take care of them anymore. After learning his daughter, and the other two girls were safe, Casillas says it's brought joy, and sadness. Casillas says "It's been like a roller coaster, honestly, my emotions go up, I get excited, but then I'm sad because Siah doesn't have a mother anymore, that's not what I wanted...you know?  I don't think anybody wants that.  I mean, who takes the mother away from someone's children?"

Now, Casillas says he's working to bring his daughter home from Des Moines. Casillas says "I want my child back, I want Siah back, I named her Siah, and Jessica named her Dean, and you know, Casillas, and I was proud of her since day one, and I just want her back."
