In Mexico City Tuesday, a man was arrested for abusing teenage girls he kept imprisoned for seven years, fathering five children with them, before killing one of the girls and a 3-month-old baby they conceived.
Police say Jorge Iniestra, 32, became obsessed with his girlfriend, Clara Tapia’s teenage daughters in 2004. He soon pulled them out of school, and kept them locked inside a room in his mother’s house, unable to go outside, and even boarding up the windows.
Almost inconceivably, the abuse against these girls was hidden by his mother, brothers, sisters, and Tapia, their own mother, who helped ensure they did not escape.
Iniestra, a part-time taxi driver, sexually, physically, and emotionally abused the girls, having five children with them. They had to go to the bathroom in the room, and Iniestra forced their younger brother to clean up the room by hand. He also forced the boy to sell candles and collect cardboard to make money.
Sadly, prosecutors say Iniestra wound up beating one of the teenaged girls to death before he smothered one of the children he’d fathered with her, a three-month-old baby. He then put both bodies in the room with the other locked up girl, forcing her to be with it for more than month, before he and his brother dumped the body along a highway.
Finally, Tapia went to the police, which resulted in the childrens’ rescue.
