Nubia and Victor Barahona
After abuse reports were lodged by teachers, Nubia and Victor Barahona, twins who had been adopted by Jorge and Carmen Barahona, were withdrawn from their Florida school by their parents, who told officials that they were going to homeschool the children. In the months that followed, Jorge and Carmen systematically and horrifically tortured the children, sometimes tying them up and leaving them for days on end. Only ten years old, Nubia was found bludgeoned to death. Her brother Victor barely survived a chemical dousing.
