UPDATE: D.C. Police Say Body Found is Kahlil Tatum

While searching for the missing Relisha Rudd, 8, at the D.C. Park, police found Tatum's body from what they're saying is an apparent suicide.
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Investigators with D.C. Police say they have positively identified the body Tuesday in Kenilworth Park as Kahlil Tatum. 

While searching for the missing girl, 8-year-old Relisha Rudd, at the D.C. Park, police found Tatum's body from what they're saying is an apparent suicide. 

Tatum was wanted by police in the disappearance of Relisha, as well as the murder of his wife.

As we've reported, police are still searching for Relisha Rudd. They're calling it a "recovery" mission, and they're still hoping to find Relisha alive. 

The park is 700 acres with several bodies of water and wooded areas. Police say they've been using underwater cameras, search dogs, and hundreds of police and firefighters offices and cadets in this search.

"In 700 acres we have multiple area that have been searched multiple times, and still are not finished. We still have additional searches to be done so the best answer I can give you is there were multiple waves of searches that have gone through each area of the park," said Chief Cathy Lanier, D.C. Police. 

Relisha has been missing since March 1, 2014 and was suspected to have been with Tatum, who was the janitor at the same homeless shelter where she lived.
