This story is a reversal in what we normally see around here.
38-year-old Maria Bettancourt of Stockton, Calif. has been arrested in the abuse and torture death of 3-year-old Guadalupe Correa. The autopsy showed that Guadalupe died from trauma but police aren’t going into much detail.
Bettancourt is the girlfriend of Guadalupe’s father, Alberto Correa. Correra has disappeared in the wake of his main squeeze’s arrest. Which makes one wonder if he was involved or complicit in the abuse.
Guadalupe was raised by a foster family who had her other two sisters but were forced to give up Guadalupe to the sperm donor. Biological parental rights should never outweigh the welfare of the child.
BTW, Ms. Bettancourt looks a lot like Captain Lou Albano.
