Santa Fe Child Abuse case makes headlines
Santa Fe, NM – A local story is getting international attention, but not for the right reasons. A Santa Fe mother is accused of child abuse resulting in her toddler’s death.
Police say 27-year-old Miranda Rabago took her son, Ares Baroz, to the hospital in November after she reportedly found him unconscious in his crib. The 18-month-old died after suffering fractures to his skull, legs and shoulder area, as well as bleeding in the brain.
New details are emerging about what was found in Rabago’s apartment. According to the Daily Mail, police found photos on Rabago’s cell phone showing the toddler with the word’s “thug life” written in black sharpie across his stomach. She also allegedly wrote “loco” on the child’s forehead.
Police say they also found a sippy cup with rotten milk in his crib, blood on a pillow and marijuana pipes.
