Laredo, TX— A Texas couple, Monica Dominguez, 37 and George Zavala Loredo, 32 were arrested in connection with their daughters death.
Police received a tip from a neighbor which takes them to finding 3 year old, Rebecca Zavala’s decomposed body in a five-gallon container that appeared to be filled with acid. The container was located in the bedroom closet.
Dominguez claimed that the child drowned while in a bathtub alone, and she asked for Loredo’s help to dispose the body. An autopsy will determine if the child suffered any injuries prior to her death.
The couple is being charged with evidence tampering, endangering a child, and abuse of a corpse. Authorities are waiting for autopsy results to see if injuries are consistent with a possible murder.
The couples four other children have been turned over the Child Protective Services. Dominguez has been previously charged with injury to a child. Loredo is reportedly in the U.S. illegally.
