Mother Devastated After Daughter Burns To Death In Oven, Can't Believe Who's Responsible

A horrifying and confounding case has emerged from Houston, Texas after a child was accidentally killed by her siblings. Mr. Fredrick Price has come forward with a plea for help in finding his children who were among four children left alone by their mother and her boyfriend in their Houston apartment. Mr. Price’s two children, both three years old, allegedly put their 19-month-old sister in the oven, leaving her to burn to death, while her mother was out picking up a pizza.

The children’s mother, Racquel Thompson, told Police she often left the four children, all under the age of five, home alone when she drove her current boyfriend to his workplace. Despite the children’s grandmother living in the same apartment building, Ms. Thompson did ask her to look after the unsupervised children, leaving the four children to their own devices. The situation quickly turned into tragedy, when Ms. Thompson returned to find little J’Zyra burned alive in the oven. Ms. Thompson told paramedics she attempted to perform CPR, however, the sweet, innocent girl was already dead when paramedics arrived at the scene.

Mr. Price, an ex-boyfriend to Ms. Thompson, is outraged that his two children, accused of placing the toddler in the oven and turning it on, were left alone unsupervised. Mr. Price told reporters he felt it was “very irresponsible” and that he “should have gotten a phone call to come and get my children”. Mr. Price informed the authorities that his two children had been staying with their mother after he lost his job two months prior to the incident. In the lead up to the tragic incident, Mr. Price made numerous attempts to contact Ms. Thompson, however, he had not been able to speak to his children for approximately two months. The three remaining children have been placed into emergency foster but Mr. Price is desperate to gain full custody of his two children regardless of what happened. Mr. Price also told reporters he was not certain if J’Zyra was also his daughter, never having gotten an official paternity test. Price confessed, “she was a cute little baby; I just didn’t know if that was my daughter or not”. It is unclear whether Ms. Thompson and her current boyfriend have been charged with negligence as a result of the appalling incident.
