    According to MSM, the baby had been dead for some time. The fire was started in the basement using lighter fluid. Some articles state the fire occurred/baby discovered Tuesday night, others Wednesday morning, so likely this occurred in the very early hours of Wednesday morning.

    I'm thinking this poor child had been abused and neglected all of his life. A 4yo mistaken for a 9mo - 2yo?

    Mom, Boyfriend Charged In Connection With Child’s Death


    A mother and her boyfriend have been charged with attempted arson and concealment of a death, after they set the body of her 4-year-old deceased son on fire inside a vacant home in Englewood.

    Alyssa Garcia, 27, her boyfriend, Christian Camerena, 19, and a juvenile offender were all facing charges in the boy’s death.

    For about a year, the frail 4-year-old boy was kept in a back room with the family’s bicycles and the putrid smell of his own urine, prosecutors said in court on Thursday.

    His screams of “Let me out” were either ignored or met with a beating, witnesses told police.

    [...]

    The boy’s mother, 27-year-old Alyssa Garcia, along with a 17-year-old boy and another friend of the mother, have been charged with concealing the boy's death.

    Garcia’s head hung low at a court hearing Thursday afternoon at the Leighton Criminal Court Building. The judge ordered her held in lieu of $2 million bail. Bail was set at $1 million for the 19-year-old friend Christian Camarena. The 17-year-old is being charged as a juvenile.

    The state Department of Children and Family Services had prior contact with Garcia, who recently gave birth to premature twins. In 2012, she was sentenced to 18 months supervision for endangering the life of a child.

    Santini spoke in court of the horrific abuse Manuel allegedly endured before his death. He was beaten with a shoe, given a black eye and was “so skinny that his ribs were showing,” Santini said. Witnesses told police they would rarely see him eat, and there were days when he was not fed, Santini said.

    Manuel often would hide his feces in the room in fear of Garcia beating him, Santini said. The boy would have to knock on the door to be allowed to go to the bathroom and was often completely naked because he would urinate on himself, Santini said.

    [...]

    Prosecutors said when Garcia saw that her son wasn’t breathing on July 29, she didn’t seek medical attention for him because she feared DCFS would take her kids away again.

    One of his siblings checked for a heartbeat and pulse and determined that he had died, Santini said.

    Poor child. Hopefully, this will be the start of a better life for the other children.

    Candice Perez, who is the mother of Camarena and a neighbor of Garcia’s, said she and her son tried to help the children.

    “We have brought those kids to our house, we have fed them, we were there for them,” Perez said. “Just because they weren’t our kids and just because they weren’t related to us, we treated them the same way we would any of our other kids. Even the little boy.”

    Perez said she took pictures of Manuel’s legs and body and wishes that she had called DCFS earlier.

    “We’re just as guilty as anybody else because had I called DCFS, would this be happening right now? Probably not,” she said. “But I was thinking about the kids and didn’t want them all to be taken. But I should have. I should have made a selfish decision and said, ‘you know what? They all got to go,’ because ultimately, would this be happening?”

    Oh dear Lord. That poor baby.
    I don't understand how a mom/woman/parent pick on a child and make their life miserable. I don't get it how that could be possible.

    So originally the ME thought the body was that of a 9 month old to a 2 yr old. But in reality the poor boy was FOUR years old. That tells us how neglected the poor child was.

    My soul grows weary and my heart sick. Case after case after case. It never ends. Ever. No words could ever describe how angry and sad each of these cases make me. How that poor little guy sufffered. How so many are right now suffering in basements and closets and backrooms. A river of tears for these babies.

    And nothing but disgust and rage for the monsters who continue to systematically destroy their own through torture, neglect and abuse.

    I am so sorry Manny. So very sorry. Fly high far from all the pain this life showed you.

    Was Manuel's last name Garcia? This child was made to be invisible when not being tortured. I want to make sure his proper name is on this thread title
