Dallas, TX – Abner Santiago and his family had long been concerned for the safety and well-being of his sister Abneris and her young children – since she met Alfred Santiago in Florida several years ago and abruptly moved out of state and away from her family. After a recent telephone call to her mother in which she relayed that Alfred was abusive to her and her children, Abner set out from Ohio to find his sister. On July 2, Abner caught up with his sister at a BBQ restaurant where she was employed – the two placed a call to the local sheriff’s department to request a police escort in order to safely remove Abneris’ four children from their room at the Budget Suites motel. When their escort arrived, they found Alfred sitting inside the suite with the couple’s healthy 1-year-old baby girl. Abneris’ other three children, ages 6, 10, and 11, were found emaciated and shut inside the bathroom – where they spent the majority of their time. And damn…those kids really had a tale to tell.
The children had been starved – their ribs protruded, their cheeks and eyes sunk in their faces. When given their first real meal in god knows how long, they vomited. According to court records, the three children, who were not fathered by Alfred, informed investigators that they had been locked in the bathroom since October – whether that was October of 2007 or 2008 is unclear. The only time they were allowed to leave the bathroom was when Alfred needed to shower. Abneris’ 11-year-old daughter said her and her two siblings were rarely fed, and when they were, they hoarded food because they weren’t sure when they would be able to eat again. The girl also told investigators that Alfred had been raping her for years – a fact that she had also shared with her mother several times – to no avail.
Abneris’ 10-year-old son said when the family was living in Florida, Alfred was a “nice, nice, gentle man,” but after moving to Texas, “That is when my living nightmare began.” The children stated that Alfred repeatedly called them “rapists,” and told their mother that they had molested their youngest sister, and she believed him. The 10-year-old explained that was why they were locked in the bathroom – to keep them away from their sister and other children. None of the three have attended school in several years. After spending 10 days at the Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, the kids were placed in foster homes. When the 10-year-old, who was covered in bruises, was asked if there was anything he needed, replied, “I’m safe now, that’s all I need.”
If that shit doesn’t turn your stomach, the crap flowing out of Alfred and Abneris’ mouth will. Alfred says he is the victim in all of this, not those pesky kids! “The one who is being disrespected right now is I, because I’m the one who’s being abused,” he stated in a jailhouse interview. He went on to say that Abneris’ three older children were baby rapers and had poured urine on his daughter. “What I was doing is protecting my baby daughter from her (Abneris) kids,” Santiago said. “What I did was I did not let my daughter out of my sight.” Wouldn’t you know it, this is all one big conspiracy against him. “I’m a man in the United States. We’re treated very unfairly when it comes to a woman. If people will start looking for what they need to be looking for,” he said, “they will find the truth.” I don’t know what the fuck that’s supposed to mean, but hey, whatever helps you sleep at night, dickhead. And, of course, he denies responsibility for locking the children in the bathroom – according to him, that was all Abneris’ doing.
And what about good ‘ol mom? What does she have to say about all this? Well, you know she’s saying she was scared of Alfred and that’s why she did absolutely nothing to protect her children. She said she fed the children breakfast and dinner, and tried to sneak them food every now and then “at the risk of a beating.” She left the children in Alfred’s care six days a week while she held down a job. Though the toilet in the bathroom had been broken for months, she made sure to flush it and clean it every morning so her kids “would be in a clean place.” She stated that she was aware Alfred wasn’t feeding the kids because “they weren’t his responsibility.” Abneris also stated that she’s hungry too…I mean, geez, she was unable to eat for two whole days because she was so upset. But this statement, above all others, is the most jaw-dropping, nauseating, self-serving statement I have heard in a long time: “You have no idea what I’ve been through.” And, as an afterthought, “Or the children.”
Alfred Santiago, 37, is being held on charges of aggravated sexual assault and continuous sexual abuse. His bond has been set at $125,000. Abneris Santiago, 30, is facing charges of injury to a child. Bond for her was set at $50,000. (The two aren’t married and the last names are pure coincidence).
