    The link states that mom & daughter just moved in with mom's boyfriend on August 23. The boyfriend has spoken to LE and is not charged at this time. The mother, 27-year-old Priscilla Nicole Torres, has told several different stories to LE and is held on $50,000 bail (per ABC video).

    Fri 8/23 moved in with mom's bf
    Tue 8/27 child dies
    ....<almost a week passes, no Sierra>....
    Mon 9/2 concerned family visit mom, call LE

    How did this bf live with that smell in his apartment? Where did he think the 5 y/o went? What?

    “Investigators are now trying to see whether Sierra's death is consistent with the mother's statement to police.

    An autopsy will determine whether her death was accidental or intentional, and is expected to shed light on what chemical she may have ingested.”

    5-Year-Old Tx. Girl’s Body Is Found Decaying in Closet, and Mom Is Arrested
    Sierra Patino's body was found wrapped in a blanket in a closet


    September 04, 2019

    "A mother in Houston has been accused of hiding her daughter’s body in a closet for days after claiming the child died accidentally.

    On Monday, the body of 5-year-old Sierra Patino was found decaying in a closet in a Houston home. Sierra’s body was found after her grandparents went to check on her after not seeing her for several days, according to Houston police.

    When her grandparents arrived at the home, they asked their daughter, 27-year-old Priscilla Nicole Torres, what smelled so bad. Torres allegedly confessed that the foul odor was Sierra’s decaying body hidden in a closet. Her parents called 911.

    Torres told police Sierra had died after ingesting chemicals on Aug. 27....

    Torres allegedly claimed Sierra had ingested toilet bowl cleaner after a bottle fell into the bathtub while she was taking a bath. She allegedly said the child died after days of stomach pains, ABC13 reports, and allegedly said she didn’t call police out of fear of Child Protective Services. When Sierra died, Torres allegedly said she wrapped her body in a blanket before hiding it in the closet...."

    The toilet bowl cleaner fell into the tub where Sierra was getting a bath. She ingested the chemical cleaner, through osmosis, and later died. Oh yeah, right.

    Mom didn't contact authorities because she feared CPS involvement.
    What, she thought CPS would remove her daughter from . . . the closet?

    Both she and the boyfriend need to go away permanently. This was no accident (IMO).

    I'm having some difficulty trying to imagine a five-year old child who willingly drinks from a bottle of toilet-bowl cleaner that "accidentally" falls into the bath. Even if my kids had grown up in a world without toilet-bowl cleaner, I can't see them choosing to drink it after the first, tiniest smell/taste.

    Guessing that the elements of what actually happened will be found somewhere between the bath, the forcible ingestion of toilet-bowl cleaner (why include that odd detail if it isn't involved somehow?) and an out-of-control angry "parent" who has murdered her/his child and then waited, more or less paralyzed, to be found out.

    You did not deserve this Sierra.
    You were but 5 years old.
    My heart goes to the grandparents loss and the grief of this horrible crime. They got the truth out of their daughter. And made the call to LE.
    This disgusts me.
    Rest Easy sweet beautiful Sierra may you hold hands with all the other little souls, that were murdered and know that JUSTICE IS COMING.

    I hope both these people have nightmares of the horror they did.
