RE: discipline by hotsauce...and other child abuse

(CNN) -- A Florida father has told police that a body found in the pest control truck he was driving is that of his daughter, authorities said Wednesday.

Jorge Barahona, 53, already faces a charge of aggravated child abuse for injuries to his son, who was found with him in the truck on the side of I-95 near West Palm Beach, officials said.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed by the West Palm Beach Police Department, a roadside assistance ranger with the Florida Department of Transportation stopped to check the red Toyota pickup Monday around 5:30 a.m. and found a 10-year-old boy inside, next to an open gas can.

The child "appeared to be in respiratory distress and (was) trembling" and his clothing "was soaked with an unknown chemical," the affidavit said.

The ranger found Barahona on the ground beside the truck and called for help.

After Barahona and his son were transported to a hospital, a worker decontaminating the truck discovered a plastic bag containing what was later determined to be a human body, the document said.

Barahona and his wife are the parents of four children adopted from Florida's foster care system, including the boy in the hospital, according to Florida Department of Children and Families spokesman Mark Riordan.
The boy is hospitalized in the intensive care unit with severe burns to his abdomen, upper thighs and buttocks, the affidavit said. While examining him, doctors also noted previous injuries to the boy, including a broken collarbone, a broken arm, scarring to his buttocks and lower abdomen and ligature marks on both wrists, police said.

Barahona told police he was distraught over the death of his daughter, and he intended to commit suicide by dousing himself with gasoline and setting himself on fire, the affidavit said. There was no mention in the affidavit of how his daughter died. Barahona said he didn't go through with his suicide plan because his son was with him, the document added.

At a hearing Wednesday in Miami to determine where the other two children of Barahona and his wife would be placed, officials said the girl found dead in the truck was the twin of the 10-year-old boy who is hospitalized.

Barahona will likely face other charges in the "complicated investigation," West Palm Beach Police spokesman Chase Scott said.

The boy suffered burns and injuries from inhaling unknown contaminants, Scott said, and authorities said in court Wednesday his skin is still being consumed by the substance that was on it.

"He is in a difficult medical condition" and is in isolation, Scott said.

Police don't know how long father and son were exposed to what Scott called "incredibly toxic chemicals" -- so potent that staff caring for the boy at the hospital became ill as well, he said.

The FBI is examining the truck and took samples of the chemicals, Scott said.

Neighbors of Barahona told reporters that he is an exterminator.

The Florida Department of Children and Families opened a child protection investigation within the past few days to look into a complaint involving the Barahona family, said Riordan, and it wasn't the first.

"Several times we've been out to the home," he said, but would not elaborate on the nature of the complaint in the current case.

At the hearing in Miami, a judge ordered that the remaining two children in the home be placed in foster care with the state.

Reporters in the courtroom Wednesday heard tales of abuse, mainly of the twins, from state officials and experts. The caller to the child protection hot line in the latest case reported that the twins were routinely locked in a bathroom for long periods and were bound, the court heard. The story was corroborated by interviews with the other two children in the home, officials said in court.

RE: discipline by hotsauce...and other child abuse

fucking useless florida DCF


MiamiHerald.com

Florida child welfare administrators may have missed two opportunities to save a 10-year-old twin girl who was found dead and covered in acid in the back of a pickup truck Monday off Interstate-95 in Palm Beach County.

About eight months before Nubia Doctor's death, the state Department of Children and Families received a report that something may not have been right in the girl's foster home in Miami.

The June report to DCF's abuse hotline said Nubia had been acting out inappropriately, suggesting she might have been experiencing difficulties.

According to the report, Nubia had been suffering from "uncontrollable'' hunger, and had been stealing food. The girl had become very thin, and was losing her hair. She also was observed to be "nervous'' and "jittery.''

Though Nubia suffered from a medical condition - sources say it involved the girl's hormones - there was no documentation in the girl's file that she had seen a doctor for the concerns raised in June, a source said.

Sources with knowledge of the case do not know whether DCF took any action in response to the report, which was coded in the agency's child welfare computer system as a "special conditions'' report, as opposed to an abuse or neglect case. Typically, special conditions reports do not lead to the removal of a child from his or her parents.

On Feb. 10, DCF received a report from a teacher that Nubia and her fraternal twin brother, Victor, age 10, were being bound by their hands and feet and made to stand in the bathtub. That day, an investigator tried to locate the children, but was told by their adoptive mother, Carmen Barahona, that she and her husband, Jorge Barahona, were separated, and that he - not she - had custody of the twins. However, a report issued later suggested that Carmen Barahona was "implicated'' in Nubia's disappearance. An investigator was told Carmen knew the whereabouts of Jorge and the children.

On Monday, authorities came across a red pickup truck along Interstate-95 in Palm Beach County. The truck was emblazoned with the name of Jorge Barahona's extermination company. Inside the truck, authorities found Victor in the midst of a seizure. The twins' adoptive father, Jorge Barahona, was slumped behind the wheel, and both Victor and Barahona were suffering from chemical burns. Both were overcome by toxic fumes.

What authorities did not discover until eight hours later - after DCF officials alerted them - was that Nubia's partially decomposed body had remained in the red pickup hidden from sight. Emergency workers, wearing hazardous materials suits, retrieved her body at about 5 p.m. The hazmat members had returned to the truck hours after state DCF investigators, searching for the family's four adopted children, could not locate Nubia.

The roots of the tragedy that unfolded on Monday apparently began the previous week when the Barahona's granddaughter - who stayed with the couple often after school - disclosed to a therapist that terrible things were happening in her grandparents' home, a source told The Miami Herald.

The granddaughter told her therapist that she had seen the two adoptive twins bound by the hands and feet and forced to stay in the bathroom. The little girl told her therapist she wanted to open her "piggy bank'' so she could find the money to rescue the twins.
A record of the allegations said the grandmother, Carmen, called the alleged abuse "a family secret'' that was "just between us.''
On Wednesday, West Palm Beach police, who are in charge of the criminal investigation, filed an affidavit detailing their investigation. They reported that Jorge Barahona had told them he was trying to commit suicide on Monday because he was distraught over Nubia's death.
Barahona told police that he was upset over the death of Nubia and was trying to kill himself. Barahona said he pulled over to the side of the highway. He gave Victor sleeping pills and doused himself with gasoline, the affidavit said. Barahona intended to set himself on fire, but he couldn't because Victor was with him.
But police said they found inconsistencies between Barahona's story and the injuries on Victor, which led them to charge the father with aggravated child abuse. Police said they found Victor soaked in chemicals and sitting in the truck next to a five-gallon gas tank.
Investigators later learned from hospital officials that the boy had extensive physical injuries. According to the police affidavit, the boy had a fractured arm, fractured clavicle, marks from some type of cord or rope around both wrists, and scarring on his lower abdomen and butt. The body of the boy's sister was found inside a plastic bag.

RE: Rampant Abuse of Children and the failures of DCF

i've lost track of all the cases that were in part due to the failures of DCF, child services, whatever. from high profile like Zahra to all the ones you never hear about. i KNOW DCF is overwhelmed and has staggering caseloads. so when do "we" give them the money and resources they need? it's our kids! is there some other place we could steal the money? because i've been hearing about the DCF failure/excuses for my entire adult career!!

RE: Rampant Abuse of Children and the failures of DCF

DCF is a difficult place to work. States keep placing hiring freezes, funds are being cut. States are hiring ppl w/ an English/Lit degree to do the work of social workers. An ideal case load for a social worker in DCF is 17, when I left in 2004 the average was 32 in the state I resided.






It's the hint of arsenic that gives it that extra kick.

WPEC / WFOR

MIAMI, Fla. -- An angry judge assailed representatives of Florida's Department of Children and Families and barred Carmen Barahona from having contact with three adopted children after the Barahonas' adopted 10-year-old girl was found dead, stuffed in a garbage bag and her twin brother nearly dead from burns and being beaten.

DCF got a complaint on Feb. 10 that the girl and her twin brother were being bound, a complaint that came from one of the children's playmates to a teacher. DCF says Carmen Barahona obstructed efforts to investigate, claimed she didn't know where the twins or their adopted father Jorge Barahona were, and that the couple was estranged. A DCF representative told Judge Cindy Lederman at the hearing that Carmen Barahona was lying.

"The mother was secreting the children and lying to the investigator," a DCF attorney said. An 11-year-old boy taken from the Barahona home Tuesday told DCF the twins were routinely "bound and locked in the bathroom" and released only to eat.

Meanwhile the condition of the 10-year-old found clinging to life off I-95 on Monday is worsening. His kidneys could be shutting down; he was being moved from St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach to the Burn Unit at Jacksonville Memorial Hospital.

In a custody hearing held Wednesday in Miami, Lederman was incredulous that DCF got a complaint Feb. 10 and one of the children ended up dead Feb. 14. A DCF investigator said probe was slowed by mother's lies and interrupted by a weekend.

"So we don't do investigations on weekends?" a wide-eyed Lederman asked.

A DCF spokesman admitted the agency had numerous contacts with the family over the last 7 years.

She ordered that the kids go to therapeutic foster care and that "no one that had any idea what was going on in that home will have any contact with these children whatsoever!" She turned to Carmen Barahona and said "Do you understand me?"

A doctor for DCF testified that the other two children, a 7-year-old girl and 11-year-old boy, seemed healthy and "engaging." The 11-year-old boy is autistic but "very bright and verbal."

RE: Rampant Abuse of Children and the failures of DCF

finally charged the bitch.

Miami Herald

Miami-Dade police on Saturday arrested Carmen Barahona, the adoptive mother whose 10-year-old daughter was discovered dead on Valentine’s Day along Interstate 95.

She and husband, Jorge Barahona, will be facing charges of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and child neglect for the slaying of Nubia Barhona.

Carmen Barahona, 60, went voluntarily to Miami-Dade police headquarters for questioning late Friday. She was booked into jail Saturday afternoon, a jail spokeswoman said.

More details of her arrest were not immediately available Saturday afternoon.

It was on Valentine’s Day that a road ranger in West Palm Beach found Jorge Barahona’s red pest control truck on the shoulder of Interstate 95. Victor, Nubia’s twin bother, was in the front cab drenched in toxic chemicals, Nubia in the flatbed, decomposed and stuffed in a trash bag. Jorge Barahona was passed out nearby.

Victor was released from Jackson Memorial Hospital’s burn unit last week, and child welfare administrators have said he is recovering nicely in a therapeutic foster home, though he will need continuing medical care and counseling.

Miami-Dade police and prosecutors assumed control of the death investigation after Victor, finally well enough to be interviewed, suggested to detectives that Nubia’s injuries were inflicted inside the family’s West Miami-Dade home.

Detectives have searched the home several times, recently hauling away a bathtub. The Barahona’s 6-year-old granddaughter reported to a therapist that the twins were being bound hand and foot and made to spend hours upon hours inside the bathtub of the family’s home.

The therapist, on Feb. 10, called in the tip to a Department of Children and Families abuse hotline — four days before Nubia’s corpse was found. The state child welfare agency has drawn intense scrutiny since the discovery. DCF has released a host of agency records detailing the twins’ abuse over much of their short lives.

Nubia, records showed, was petrified of her adoptive mother, who, she told school workers, would beat her feet with a sandal if she learned the girl had wet her pants. Nubia also was afraid her mother would learn she was hoarding food in a book bag because she was always hungry.

Last week, Carmen Barahona filed for divorce against her husband. The woman’s lawyer said Carmen had been the victim of domestic violence for much of her marriage, and should not be held responsible for what occurred inside the Barahona’s West Miami-Dade home. Carmen asked for custody of her three surviving adoptive children, though the children all are under the supervision of DCF, which has placed them in area foster homes.

Victor, agency heads have said, may be headed to Texas, where a paternal aunt and uncle have sought custody of him since 2004.

Jorge Barahona remains in the Palm Beach County Jail without bail on charges of attempted murder and aggravated child abuse.

RE: Rampant Abuse of Children and the failures of DCF

Sullen, speechless and looking exhausted, Carmen Barahona made her first court appearance Sunday (via CCTV) in front of a judge to face murder charges in connection with the death and abuse of her adopted 10-year-old daughter and the girl’s twin brother.


that's a suicide watch dress she's wearing.

RE: Rampant Abuse of Children and the failures of DCF

There has to be a way to protect children and hold CPS/DCF accountable. That they operate within the extreme secrecy of family court is a big problem. Family court needs to be transparent and all of the players need to be held accountable with criminal penalties for wrong doing and negligence. We need citizen oversight boards. Once again, Rilya Wilson comes to mind.

I am reminded of Lisa Steinberg. I was heartsick over her story.

RE: Rampant Abuse of Children and the failures of DCF

Goddamn, look at that bullshit about FL DCF!!! These insane people were FOSTER PARENTS and allowed to ADOPT????????????? These fucking Florida DCF scumbags need to go to prison, right along with the filth they placed these poor children with. Mutherfuckers are responsible for the disappearance of Rilya Wilson and the worst that came out of that were slaps on the wrists and a few people fired. When it was revealed that Rilya had been missing for over a year, and that the case worker had filed FALSE REPORTS about checking on her, it also came out that Florida had lost track of FIVE HUNDRED CHILDREN. FIVE HUNDRED!!!!!!!!!!!! How do we know they weren't sold into some sex trafficking/kiddie porn ring? WE DON'T. Half of the dept could be pedophiles and nobody would know because nobody is accountable. Conversely, CPS/DCF at al, are just as notorious for taking kids away from loving families when they shouldn't be!!!!!!!!

OMG, everything is so fucked up. This is the nanny state, in action, overseeing the dirtbags of society. It's incompetent and corrupt morons in charge of the slave plantation.

Why are these fucking immigrants in this country?! Like we don't have enough of our own dirtbags? We need MORE??? And, lets make them FOSTER PARENTS!!! Yeah, that's a great idea. Oh, fuck, we are so screwed as a country.

Throwing money at it will NOT help.
