    Tragic - why cant these parents just arrange foster care or adoption for their children instead of letting things get to these sorts of things?

    I mean its not just a spur of the moment thing that you turn around and murder your child - if i ever felt I was about to start harming my children or even had those sorts of thoughts I would ask for help.

    I think half the time parents have the kids for some extra income. It makes me sooo cross.

    God bless your soul little angel xxx

    Question: Why is she listed as "missing" when the parents were convicted of incinerating her?

    I don't know. They didn't find her remains, but that is weird that she is listed as missing.

    Did LE ever take the fireplace ashes and test them or use luminol in the house?

    I assume it's because her body is still missing.

    2014:

    A woman who forced her two daughters to drink bleach-laced milkshakes and helped dispose of the younger girl’s body in 1997 has been denied parole.

    Barbara Carrasco was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison...

    Both Barbara and Larry Carrasco were methamphetamine users and at some point in the spring or early summer of 1997, the couple became convinced that the daughters, 13-year-old Jessica Reale and 6-year-old Alexia Reale, were possessed by demons, authorities said. They locked the girls in a bedroom and over a five-day period forced them to drink bleach-laced milkshakes, believing this would exorcise the demons.

    At some point, the couple realized that Jessica was helping her sister vomit up the milkshakes, so they separated the girls, locking Alexia in a closet. After five days, Alexia died...

    Larry Carrasco, now 66 years old, was sentenced to 40 years to life in prison and is at California State Prison, Corcoran.
