New photos reveal the squalid conditions in which two children were allegedly kept captive in North Las Vegas.
Addy Gonzales, her boyfriend, Daniel Omezcua, and Gonzales’ mother, Maria Pasarin, have been indicted on criminal charges. Their charges include child abuse and false imprisonment.
Prosecutors allege that the trio kept Gonzales’s niece and nephew locked up in the garage or bedroom without food or water for extended periods of time.
Neighbors called the police after they saw the teen girl attempting to escape through a second-floor window in search of water last November.
The girl and her brother testified in front of the grand jury that they had been held captive in the garage or bedroom for months at a time without food or water.
On Monday morning, the trio appeared before Clark County District Court Judge Tierra Jones. In lieu of bail, the defendants’ lawyers were prepared to argue that they should remain out of custody.
This case has prompted outrage among members of the community, as the children were allegedly kept captive for extended periods of time without access to basic necessities such as food and water.
The photos of the rooms where they were held demonstrate the inhumane conditions they were forced to endure.
