Adoptive Parent Beat Nubia Barahona to Death Day After Child Welfare Visit: Police

Victor Barahona, who’s 10-year-old twin sister, Nubia, was found dead last month, heard their adoptive parent beating her to death one day after a child-welfare worker visited the home, police say Victor told them.

According to the Miami Herald, “Miami-Dade police believe 10-year-old Nubia Barahona was murdered by her adoptive parents the day after a child welfare investigator visited the family’s west Miami-Dade home, according to arrest reports unsealed Monday.”

The paper continued, “Nubia’s twin brother, Victor, told detectives that he heard his adoptive father, Jorge Barahona, beating his sister to death on Friday, Feb. 11, while Victor remained bound and locked in the bathroom of the house. Barahona’s wife, Carmen, later told Victor that his sister “had been sent away,” the police reports say.” Read the entire story here.
