How can the police book them if they don't know anything that happened? They have ZERO evidence, yet they're in jail. Innocent until proven guilty is a thing of the past.

apparently they have more than zero

maybe the two year old was threatening them, though, right?

"Evidence was found that pointed to foul play," she said. "Whether it was intentional or not, the child still died, and it is being investigated as a homicide."

Sounds like they have evidence to me.

America is now the dumping ground for other countries' trash. Case in point: Palaez and Diaz. We should give them all amnesty.

"Get real" did you even read the story? "Evidence was found that pointed to foul play..." Zero evidence? Were you THERE? I'm with you, Escape CA.

All you sissies can cry about it all you want...but I'm for rule of law. They "suspect foul play" based on the 9-11 call...hardly evidence of murder. The fact is, THEY DON'T KNOW. US laws are suppose to be innocent until proven guilty, if you don't like it, GET THE F OUT OF THE USA.

I'm not saying whether the adults are guilty or not, I'm just saying that the state should not jail people off a hunch. GET IT, MORONIC, BOOT LICKING SOCIALISTS?!

It boggles my mind how parents can willifully harm/murder their own child. The sweet young boy in LA earlier in the month, killed by his stepfather (who, thank goodness, is finally in jail); Idaho last week, same scenario-mom and boyfriend murdered her young son. They then threw his body in a canal. This woman should have never been allowed any visitation with her son-yet she was-and the child winds up dead. What made the Idaho story more gut-wrenching is the boy's father (who had legal custody) saw his 4 yr. old daughter stabbed to death by his first wife a couple of years ago! OMG, what is wrong with people?

A 2 year old in Lake Elsinore has her feet scalded in the bathtub because she had a potty training accident , the child's feet were so badly burned they may need to be removed this same 2 year old has a 4 year old sister that had her shoulder dislocated by mom's boyfriend ... DPSS gave mom and boy friend 4 years parole time and jail on weekend for the 4 year olds shoulder and claimed mom was low risk .
4 year old in Highland Park decapitated with a Ginsu Knife by mom ... DPSS called previously by school principal mom was questioned ... again low risk.
I've called DPSS in regards to a mother that was renting out her garage to day laborers this woman had 3 girls ages 4,6, and 13 ... While mom was away the 13 year old became pregnant by one of the 20 something year old day laborers ... I called DPSS in regards to my concerns regarding statutory rape and mom never being present ... DPSS stated to me
"That this was their culture and they would not seek a case because there was nothing they could do .... DIVERSITY IS NOT AN EXCUSE TO KILL AND HARM CHILDREN ... I know , I'm a racist .

Well, God Bless you for being a caring, concerned parent and neighbor, but you can only do so much, and just hope the authorities step in and remove those children for their own protection! And for DPSS to make such a ridiculous statement, shows the huge problems that agency needs to resolve ASAP!

The boy in LA I think his name was Dae'Von Bailey,his mother refuses to take any RESPONSIBILITY for what happened to him because she wasn't living in the home with them even though he had 'whipped bad'her older son!?This women has four or five kids in the system and NOW she is taking 'parenting classes'!This little boy told his teacher twice(on two different ocassions) who notified authorities that he was being abused and NOTHING happened.

My heart goes out to all these kids that have suffered and I pray for those that are still suffering because the parents couldn't/can't hang being responsible for someone other than themselves. DON'T HAVE ANY KIDS IF YOU'RE JUST GOING TO MAKE THEM SUFFER! THERE ARE OTHER CHOICES! This is why I believe that the choice to have a baby or not is up to the mother. If you're thinking about abortion don't be afraid of other people's comments or concerns. You (not anyone else) is going to have to make sure your baby is safe and taken care of at all times. No one is going to do your job for you.

Saw her on the news-I heard her say that she didn't live in the home and I wondered about that..did Dae Dae live with the stepdad or ? And Momma had some damned nasty hair, if you ask me. I would be ashamed to get on camera and pretend to be a grieving mother.

the fact of the matter is that they are in jail and if they are still being held if because they found something.... also some people dont know how to deal with the pressure and confess everything so who knows they might of confessed to something and people should not refer to them as the trash from other countries that is just so racist... we already deal with tooo much racism to consider this racist and yes idiots like this shouldnt be allowed to raise kids when they are just kids themselves... my prayers go to his 2 older sisters that dont know yet whats going on...

I have three kiddos, and this story makes me so sad.

I pray that there is a heaven where this boy can be... free of fear, free of pain, free to feel loved, free to be a child...with no memory of your life here on earth.

rest in peace

My two yr old and Rene shared the same babysitter. It struck me odd that Rene's mother would drop him off for days and/or weeks at a time without giving the sitter notice about her whereabouts or when she would return for her child. In addition to that, the mother wouldn't provide the necessities (diapers, wipes, bottle, food, change of clothing) that would be essential to care for the child while away from home. Though I have peace of mind knowing that baby Rene spent his final three days in the care of his sitter who showed him the love, care, and attention that he deserved!
