Twin girls abandoned
Oct 12, 2013
An 8:55am call, this date, to Cpl. Michael Strait of the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department to meet Federal Probation Officers resulted in charges of Abandonment/Endangerment of a Child on Amy Castillo, age 27, after two (2) year old twin girls were found locked in a room, nude and without food or sanitary bathroom facilities. Castillo is the Aunt of the twins. Lead Investigator Cpl. Strait is in the process of preparing a case to forward to the District Attorney’s office for possible charges against the mother of the two little girls, Brandy Dominguez, age 20, who, initially, was not at home when the Federal Officers arrived.
The Federal Probation Officers, out of Beaumont, had gone to the residence located at 200 CR 2283 to check on Brandy Dominguez as she is on pre-trial release for a Human Trafficking charge. Dominguez was not at home when they arrived but her sister, Amy Castillo, was and allowed the Officers to enter the home. While there, the Officers heard scratching coming from a door leading to a bedroom. With Castillo’s permission, the double locked door was opened and the Officers found the two twin girls in the room. Both were nude, no food nor toys were in the room and Cpl. Strait stated there was only one blanket on the floor and the room smelled strongly of human waste.
Liberty County EMS was summoned to the scene and checked the little girls’ physical condition which appeared to be satisfactory. The CPS office was contacted and as of this writing, they are in route to the scene to do a case evaluation on the disposition of the twin girls. The case will continue under investigation by the LCSO, CPS and the D.A’s office.
