Enna Isabel Barreto


2 year old adopted daughter of Ramon Barreto and Janet Lee Killough Barreto, one of seven children adopted from Guatemala by the couple, died of blunt force trauma. Ramone and Janet Barreto were initially charged with two counts of child neglect. 17-year-old Marainna Torres, Janet's daughter, pleaded guilty to manslaughter. USCIS approved their adoption applications for a total of seven children in 2005 and 2006.

Pending charges against the parents include culpable negligence in the death of Enna, as well as allegations brought by the Marainna that: - Luisa Fernanda Barreto and Juan Fernando Barreto were tied in a baby crib for long periods. and - Adriana Killough, also known as Adriana Santana Lemar, was caged in a closet for prolonged periods and forced to eat, sleep, urinate and defecate in the cage. (Adriana was the first adopted child and apparently the adoption was later disrupted).

Where are they?

It's been several months since the latest news update on this case and apparently the Barettos are still fugitives and have been since June of this year.

Parents are still missing

The parents are still wanted fugitives. The daughter who was charged Enna has just been released from jail (her term was short as she was a victim of her parents, the real criminals). I hope she is able to turn her life around.

They finally have been

They finally have been caught
