Police: Dallas Mom Glued Daughter’s Hands To Wall

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – Dallas police arrested a woman they say beat and tortured her two-year-old daughter — nearly to death.

The toddler was taken to Children’s Medical Center Wednesday morning.

Friday morning police released some details of the alleged abuse.

According to authorities, 22-year-old Elizabeth Escalona glued her toddler daughter’s hands to a wall, kicked her in the stomach and beat her over what authorities called a “potty training issue.”

A North Texas newspaper reported that glue and paint were stuck to the girl’s palms and pieces of skin had been torn away in places.

Sources told CBS 11 News that the child was close to death when her grandmother took her to the hospital. The woman had reportedly found the child unresponsive.

The grandmother is also the person who reportedly helped in the arrest of Escalona, who has been charged with Injury to a Child.

A judge has granted Child Protective Services custody of the injured two-year-old and her three siblings.

    Glue the beeaaatches hands to the bumper of a police car and make her “follow” them downtown to headquarters.

  2. Laura W says:

    Amen to that !!!!!

    Some people don’t deserve children.

      You got that right, I have custody of my grand daughter after her mother neglected her as a baby! I only wish after finding these women unfit that they would have to be sterilized so that they couldn’t have any more children! Some women are rotten to the core and hopefully they will lock this b i t c h up and throw away the key!

    OMG! How can people be so stupid! She needs to be glued to something herself, a jail cell!

    I know for a fact that there are families out there who would love to have a baby or child in there home. All the selfish and sadisdic “parents” that hate their children should give them to the officials that can place them. We were given a baby by his mother when he was 5 mos old, not because she didin’t love him, but because she couldn’t give him the life she wanted him to have. We kept in contact and when he was a senior in high school we helped him reunite with her and her family. We did not lose him. He is married with 4 children of his own now. People, give your child a chance to grow up happy. It’s the right thing to do. DON’T HURT YOUR CHILDREN!

      You cannot get AFDC, WIC and any one of several other welfare funds if you give your children away!

  6. dfwman says:

    They should lock this POS up and she should never see the light of day again. I read in another article that the baby has severe brain damage. And it’s all because of the selfish, brutal acts of the child’s own mother. Can you say death penalty??

  7. Lindsay says:

    What the heck is this world coming to? I strongly believe that if you do not want children or do not have the desire to look after them, dont spread your f”in legs. And to those who beat the children to the point of no return, should be glued to the hosptial bed and have their inners removed so they can not produce.

    I feel if we EVER give up a woman’s right to a legal abortion we are going to see a HUGE spike in child abuse cases! Back when I was a kid allot of my classmates were unwanted kids who were constantly getting beat and abused by their parents. Many of them grew up to serve time in prison. Many abused and unwanted kids grow up to do the same to their own kids.

    1. GS says:

      This woman had that “right”, but chose not to exercise it. Probably because without this child (and the other she chose not to abort) she would get no assistance (money) from the government. I am suprised that people who see abortion as a “right” do not condone the killing of children. After all, they came from her body so by their way of thinking, shouldn’t she have the right to do with them what she wants?

      1. Sara says:

        If we give up the “right” to abortion. We chose abortion and abuse over adoption. HOW SELFISH! Its better to kill a child before they are born so they dont have meaning to you? We would solve BOTH options by adoption!

  9. C Bauer says:

    This “mother” needs to be set on fire and extinguished with sulfuric acid.

  10. mike says:

    She should be killed period!

  11. Jeff says:

    If I was the person who had to answer the call about what this woman did to that baby, I would not hesitate to completely beat that woman until she was unrecognizable. What a piece of trash she is!

  12. Chuck Norris says:

    I have a piece of metal that I would like to send through her skull with ferocious velocity. But that would be too easy for this trash. Send her back to Mexico in a body bag.

    Dig that tattoo. She must be a CEO. Sprechen Sie classy? What a loser.

  14. fredpat says:

    This article makes no mention of the father. Why doesn’t
    he get a chance to raise the child? This article illuminates the bias against fathers who’s apparant roll is to provide state enforced monetary support,
    and not allowed to be primary care providors due to some capricious bias of some judge.
    Foster care is a disater and is no substitute for natural family

    1. Kramer K. Kramer says:

      Maybe the spico is in the joint doing hard time, or deported.

    2. Goldie says:

      It also makes no mention on if the mother was suffering from a mental illness. Too many people in here are ready to jump on the stereotypical welfare mom truck and not wait to see what really happened here. This article did not give much information at all.

  15. LULU says:

    What the polices need to do is to glue her hands on the wall and beat the sh** out of her. Then lock her up in jail. I hope the judge that takes this case, wont let her get a way with it.

  16. There is No God says:

    Because of cultural and religious pressures this woman was probably forced to have and keep this child. It’s a shame that she felt she had to keep an unwanted child. I know so many kids who get abused by parents who never really wanted but their parents are pressured by their families and religion to keep them.

  17. Guess Who says:

    What did Bushie say about wet familia values?

    1. NiteNurse says:

      You forget that Jeb Bush’s wife was born in Mexico.
