We posted on this case earlier, and it's pretty apparent that UNNAMED DAD must be a custodial father.
INVISIBLE MOTHER ALERT: Still no word on how or why this little girl came to be in her father's "care" and so horribly neglected. So much so that she died of an infected appendix without medical attention.

"It's so filthy and disgusting we can't even say it on t.v.," said Senator Carlos Uresti, District 19. He is outraged about a recent case of child abuse in Guadalupe County. "There's no reason why anyone in their right mind wouldn't have removed these kids," he said. It's the worst case of child abuse Senator Uresti says he's seen in years and he feels that Sarah Brasse would be alive today had a caseworker done her job and used better judgment. Now he's calling for more prevention at Child Protective Services.
In 2009, eight year-old Sarah was found dead from an infected appendix in her father's care. Senator Uresti pointed to reports dating back to 2007 that detail abuse and neglect that were dismissed. "You read this and you wonder how in the world does a caseworker not remove these children?" he asked.
Eyewitness News 5 has also learned that the girl's father who is accused of Criminally Negligent Homicide is turning to the Internet, specifically Facebook to tell his side of the story.
