The day after her second birthday, Darisabel Baez was rushed to the hospital in York, Pennsylvania covered in so many bruises that her appearance was likened to “camouflage” by first responders. After Darisabel died from her injuries, her mother, Neida Baez, and Neida’s boyfriend, Harve Johnson, were arrested and ultimately charged with murder.
This is the story of another child whose life was cut short by her mother’s live-in boyfriend. It’s also the story of a little girl whose savage beating death by a video game controller and her own hiking boot must not be what we remember best about her or the reason her memory lives on.
This is the tragic story of Darisabel Baez.
