California Boy Abandoned With Dead Sister

As a father of a four and three year old, this story hits too close to home.

Police are currently looking for a family who they believe fled the country to Mexico, leaving a 4-year-old boy behind in their Bakersfield, California home with the body of his 3-year-old sister.

From the Associated Press:

Police have not released details on the girl’s death but said her body showed signs of visible trauma when it was found Sunday morning. An autopsy was performed Monday.

The boy was found sleeping in the southwest Bakersfield house and placed in protective custody.

Both children had been adopted by their uncle, Alberto Garcia, 26 and his wife Carla, 26. Investigators believe the couple fled to Mexico with their three biological children in their white 1997 Ford Expedition.

Officers found the adoptees after Carla Garcia called her sister Sunday morning and told her to go to the house, said Bakersfield Police Sgt. Mary DeGeare, adding that investigators believe the family already was in Mexico, near the California border, at the time.

    I am certain you were a very caring person prior to having your own children however have you noticed how experiencing certain life events changes your thoughts/perspective on such events?

    I wonder if leaving was mutual or if the woman and children were forced. Isn’t the
    man involved the stepfather to the two children left behind, and didn’t the woman
    call a family member and tell them to go to the house where they found the children? Maybe I did not read accurately.

    Yep. Definitely.

  6. Honeydog Says:

    Good question *OneOp*… Who knows.
    The man involved is the UNCLE of the Children, who had also Adopted them. And Yes, it was his Wife who telephoned her Sister and told her to go to the House.

    I hope they find them Oneop…the oldest boy is ten and from another father as I understand it. He is in the most danger from the “Dad” I would think.Although the mom has a short fuse too. Gaaaaaaaaaaaaawd…………..the poopheaded ,scumbag,low down,skuz balls.
    If they are in a Mexican border town they probably are backed by gun toting drug cartel gang members and feel safe.I know I wouldn’t want to “go in” after em.
    Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawd……..poor kids!
