About a month ago, an anonymous caller notified the Department of Children and Family Services to report allegations of abuse. The caller told DCFS that the children were made to stay in the bathtub with their hands and feet duct taped and were only let out to eat. Authorities also believe the twin girl was starved. The parents, Jorge and Carmen Barahona, have had several prior abuse allegations against them but nothing was ever done about it, according to Fox News. The couple also adopted an 11 year old who has Autism and a 7 year old girl. Both were taken into state custody.
Adopted foster children tortured; one child murdered
Jorge Barahona, an adoptive father of 4 foster children, admitted to murdering his 10 year daughter and leaving her twin brother in critical condition. Barahona reportedly doused the young boy with highly toxic chemicals and gave him sleeping pills. The boy is suffering from severe chemical burns and is said to have been suffering from seizures and convulsing when he was found. Victor Barhaona was allegedly doused in a chemical so toxic, rescue workers had to wear hazmat suits and reported feeling ill while trying to save the boy. The pair was found along Interstate 95 in Palm Beach, Florida along with the body of his twin sister who was later discovered in the truck. Nubia Barahona was later found between chemical bins and wrapped in a plastic bag. Police are not yet sure of how she died.
