    Unhappy Tiny Girl Found Alive

    Tiny girl was in home up to 3 days with slain family

    ASSOCIATED PRESS

    May 31, 2006

    GARDEN GROVE – A 1-year-old girl, beaten and dehydrated, spent as many as three days alone in a house with the bodies of her slain family, police said yesterday.

    The girl was found late Monday when police, conducting a welfare check at the family's home, discovered the grisly scene – the bodies of a man in his 30s, a woman in her late 20s and a 7-year-old boy.

    “This is a very violent scene,” said Lt. Mike Handfield. “It's one of the worst cases we've seen here in Garden Grove.”
    Police didn't release the identities of the family. Autopsies were pending and detectives were trying to notify next of kin.

    Because of the girl's dehydrated state, detectives believe the killings may have occurred Friday evening – the last time the family was heard from.

    The attacker or attackers kicked or hit the tiny girl in the face.

    “She was left for dead,” Handfield said. “If she would have been here any longer, she could have perished from lack of food and water.”

    Investigators didn't know the motive for the attack, and no arrests had been made.

    Authorities did not disclose the type of weapon used in the attack, but they ruled out murder-suicide. There were no signs of forced entry.

    Evidence at the scene suggested the killings were not random and that the family knew whoever did it, Handfield said.

    The three dead were found upstairs. The boy was killed in his bedroom.

    Handfield did not know where the girl was found.

    “This was more personal than a random act,” he said.

    Handfield said the evidence also indicated the attacker or attackers “did not run in and run out” but spent some time in the residence before leaving.

    The family lived on a street lined with two-story, stucco homes in Garden Grove, about 35 miles southeast of Los Angeles in Orange County.

    The slain woman worked for a casino in San Bernardino.

    When she did not show up for work on Saturday, co-workers became concerned. Some friends stopped by the house at one point, but did not see anything amiss and assumed the family was away, Handfield said.

    The slain man had a history of arrests on nonviolent charges and had once spent time in prison.

    Handfield declined to elaborate, adding that investigators weren't sure whether the man's past had anything to do with the homicides.

    A friend was telling me how he answered a welfare check to find a five year old boy with downs syndrome in a crib that weighed fifteen pounds. It took two weeks for the kid to relax enough not to scream everytime hospital personnel went to touch him. The kid had feces on him that was days old. Why can't we shoot people for that? Abusing a kid is bad enough, but abusing a downs kid??? That is abusing the innocent of the innocent.
