It never seizes to amaze me the stupidity of people. This lady locked her kids in the trunk of her car while she went shopping at a Riverdale Walmart because her "babysitter didn't show up". They were just 2 and 5 years old!!! Of course the two children were both crying and scared.
Apparently there were a couple people who saw her lock them in ther trunk and called 911 and others saw the car shaking and heard the kids in the trunk. One good samaritan instructed the older one to pull the release latch.
Now, hopefully she'll be locked up as well for quite some time.
Below is the story from Fox News.
This Thursday, May 25, 2017 booking photo released by the Weber County Sheriff's Office shows Tori Lee Castillo, 39.
A Utah woman was arrested Thursday after she allegedly locked her two young children in her car’s trunk while she shopped at Walmart.
Riverdale police said witnesses heard the children, ages 2 and 5, making noise and saw the car shaking. The older child was able to pull the emergency latch in the trunk and called 911 for help.
Tori Lee Castillo remained in jail on suspicion of child abuse. She was arrested when she returned to her car.
Police Lt. Casey Warren said the state child welfare was contacted and the children were turned over to a responsible party.
