Call To Abuse Hotline Triggered Investigation Into Adoptive Parents Of Twins Found In Truck

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Florida Department of Children and Families officials have released a call made to an abuse hotline about a girl who was later found dead in a pest control truck on the side of Interstate 95 and her twin brother, who was found doused in a chemical.

The call was made Feb. 10, four days before the discovery along I-95 in West Palm Beach.

A therapist whose name was not released said in the call that a granddaughter of Jorge and Carmen Barahona claimed the couple was taping the arms and legs of their adoptive 10-year-old twins and leaving them in a bathtub.

The caller said the twins were being taped up and put in the bathtub as punishment.

“And they are in all there all day and all night, and she undoes their arms when they eat,” the caller said.

The caller said that when the granddaughter needs to use the bathroom, she isn’t allowed to speak to the twins, saying the grandmother watches.

She said the granddaughter wasn’t abused but was “scared” because “she had been threatened not to” report the twins’ abuse.

Jorge Barahona has pleaded not guilty to attempted first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse in connection with his son’s injuries. He has not been charged in the girl’s death.

West Palm Beach police said Barahona admitted to putting his daughter’s body in a bag and driving north on I-95, bringing the girl’s twin brother with him.

According to the arrest report, Barahona said he pulled over just north of the Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard exit in West Palm Beach, gave his son some sleeping pills, poured gasoline over himself and intended to light himself on fire, but Barahona said he couldn’t kill himself in front of his son
