Mother Neglected Her Children, Toddler Dies Horrifically

On Nov. 16, Racquel Thompson returned home to find her 19-month-old daughter, J'Zyra inside an oven that was turned on. The toddler was already dead, with severe burns, when the mother attempted CPR.

Before Thompson returned home, three other children were left alone in the apartment that night with J'Zyra. They were all under five years old with two of them being three years old. The 3-year-old siblings told investigators with Texas Child Protective Services (CPS) that one of them had put their sister in the oven and the other one had turned it on.

The toddler was allegedly kicking the doors of the oven as she was burned. The three children have been turned over to the custody of CPS and are in foster care.

Police say that J’Zyra was left alone with her siblings while their mother and her boyfriend went out without telling their grandmother, who lives in the same Houston apartment complex. They allegedly went to pick up a prescription and pizza.

CPS spokeswoman Estella Olguin told Daily Mail in an email “There are concerns that the children were often left home alone and without adult supervision. CPS had prior involvement with the mother and he children."
