McKINNEY (CBSDFW.COM) – Detectives are investigating a McKinney daycare worker after police said multiple infant children were injured in her care.
Jessica Joy Wiese, 44, was arrested and booked into the Collin County Jail for Injury to a Child.
Wiese worked at Joyous Montessori on 6800 Bountiful Grove Drive in McKinney.
The first victim is a two-month-old who suffered broken bones. Police said there are at least two other infant victims. They’re in the process of contacting the parents of children who were in Wiese’s care at that location between May of 2016 and December of 2018.
Parent Ciera Bogle said she’s taking her baby to Children’s Hospital for a CT scan to make sure nothing happened. that said, she saw no sign of danger at the school.
“This kind of thing… I don’t know if something happened in her life and made her snap, you never know when someone is going to snap.”
Wiese’s adult son, Nick Wiese said he’s in shock about the accusations made against his mother.
“It doesn’t make any sense at all. All I ever hear about is the projects she does with the kids at school. She connects with them on a personal level. She tells me about the things they do, and I would never expect anything of the sort,” he said.
Joyous Montessori sent CBS 11 News the following statement:
Jessica Joy Wiese passed all background checks and has no prior history which would lead us to believe she could be capable of something like this. Jessica Joy Wiese was terminated immediately upon the discovery of this information.
Officials are asking concerned parents who have had a child at the daycare facility to call police at 972.547.2710.
