Grandma Notices Something Wrong With Granddaughter, Then She Discovers A Horrific Secret

A couple from Dallas are accused of beating the woman's 4-year-old daughter so badly she eventually died from her injuries.

At this point, both Jeri Quezada, 30, and Charles Phifer, 34, are in the Dallas County Jail facing charges of injury to a child. 

Based on information in the police report, it seems four-year-old Leiliana Wright had been beaten with a belt and a bamboo stick, then tied up in a closet, and finally thrown against a wall after the desperate little girl dared to drink her brother's juice on March 12th.

Leiliana died later that day after being found unconscious at the family home.

The cause of death was declared to be blunt-force trauma to her head and stomach. The dead girl’s body also had multiple welts from a whip across her back.

Unbelievably, Quezada apparently attempted to tell police her daughter got hurt falling n the shower, but the girl’s death was ruled a homicide.

Quezada and Phifer are admitted drug addicts/heroin users, and the pair admitted to law enforcement they had injected heroin during the day Leiliana was beaten.

Note that Quezada and Phifer already have criminal records.

It seems Quezada pled guilty to a burglary charge in 2010, and Phifer admitted to possession of a controlled substance five years ago and again in 2014.

Leiliana’s tragic death comes on top of the current scandal with Texas Child Protective Services, with watchdog groups claiming the agency repeatedly overlooked and underserved various cases of child abuse.

In this case, before the girl died, her grandmother Alisa Clakley had sent pictures of bruising on the granddaughter’s face to the authorities.

Of note, after Leiliana died, the caseworker and supervisor on her case were fired and a special investigator for the department resigned as well.

The little girl’s grandmother struggled with her grief in an interview, trying to explain the inexplicable: "If we had done something sooner, I don't know. I don't know.”
