Where Have All The Children Gone?
6 year old Elisa was born addicted to drugs, and her father sued for custody. She was a bright, and cheerful child who was very smart and received a scholarship at a private school through grade 12. All that changed when her father died and her mother obtained full custody. Family, friends, the school all reported abuse but the courts left her with her "mother" The very same "mother" who due to an abusive husband and 6 kids to care for went back to drugs and thought Elisa was a spawn of the devil, and that she needed to beat it out of her until one time it was one time too many.

The tragic case of Elisa Izquierdo is an all-too-familiar tale of bureaucratic ineptitude. Her short life and brutal death was so horrendous that it reduced even the most hardened officers to tears. When she was just 6-years-old, she was murdered by her abusive mother.New York’s Child Welfare Administration knew all about Elisa's plight long before her death yet did nothing to save her. Young Elisa became a symbol of the failures in New York’s Child Welfare Administration and Family Court, whose bureaucracy allowed this little girl to slip right through the cracks and into her grave.
