Sworn statements released by the State Attorney's Office in the death of Nubia Barahona include details of the days leading up to when authorities discovered her body.
In the first interviews, rescuers spoke about the condition of adopted son Victor Barahona when they arrived at the scene.
"[Victor] was very fidgety and his hands I just remember him moving his hands weird like around his body and his eyes were constantly looking all around and I don't know he just looked scared to death," said responder Jamie Snelgrove.
Victor was found in a truck reeking of chemicals, according to Captain Adam Mackillop. His adoptive father Jorge Barahona was found lying face up in the grass next to the truck and was unresponsive, authorities said.
Firefighter paramedic Wayne Pittman said that the medics on rescue complained that their faces were burning.The uniforms of the responders were later disposed of, said Pittman.
"The child from the car was shivering uncontrollably so I carried him to my Road Range truck and put the heat on," officer Thomas Butler said.
Nubia's dead body was soaked with hazardous liquid, according to an affidavit. Her adoptive parents Jorge and Carmen Barahon have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges.
Victor also told Mackillop that his adoptive father had been huffing something.
The grandaughter of the Barahonas revealed the situation at the Barahona house to several members of the family.
"She told my mother that the kids were doing bad," Yovani Perez, ex-husband of Carmen's daughter, said.
The little girl also told her grandmother that Nubia and Victor were bound by their arms and legs inside of the bathtub and that the bathtub curtain was taped shut. Whenever she wanted to use the bathroom, Carmen would make sure that she had no contact with the twins in the tub, according to the documents.
"Mommy said that I can't tell this to anyone, and that this is a family secret, and that secret's aren't told, and even less to dad's family, because the secrets of this family, the other family can't know of," the grandmother told authorities.
