I’d like to say that I understand the passion soccer fans have, but this is just unbelievable. 28 year old Hector Castro was arrested in McAllen, Texas this week for murdering his 2 year old stepdaughter. Why would he do such a thing? She kept crying during the US-Ghana match. I don’t blame her for crying. I would too if I had a psychotic stepdad.
Police say Hector Castro, 28, called firefighters to his apartment because the girl swallowed a screw. But police say the screw was jammed down the throat of the girl to make the death look like an accident, and that she died because she was beaten and suffocated.
“There are no words for this,” McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez told the Monitor. “It makes you want to think about doing lots of things to this guy, but he will face the criminal justice system just like everybody else.” –USAToday
Without question, the most morbid use of the sentence “she swallowed it and choked” I could possibly imagine. However, Castro is certainly a criminal mastermind. As if the coroner wouldn’t notice the massive, fist sized bruises all over her body. Apparently, he’s an illegal immigrant so after he’s done torturing children, he can take care of your lawn for 5 dollars an hour.
