This enchantress is Torina Gutierrez. She’s accused of putting PCP (or angel dust to you folks old enough to remember that lovely term) on her daughters sandwich. Her daughter is six. That must have been a hell of a lunch.
Hailing from unincorporated burg of Del Valle, Texas (population 300) Ms. Gutierrez was placed under arrest last week for child endangerment. An arrest affidavit obtained by the The Statesman said the girl told school authorities that her sandwich meat tasted like “fireworks” and that it made her feel “dizzy and crazy.” Gutierrez picker her daughter up from school and called paramedics. Both tested positive for PCP.One of Gutierrez’s neighbors told KVUE they would always see police officers at the home where the girl lived with her mom and her mother’s boyfriend. “She was very friendly and very hyper. She would come over and play with the kids, my grand kids,” said the neighbor who only wanted to be identified as “Joel.”
Torina Ann Gutierrez, 34, faces a charge of endangering a child, a state jail felony, and theft between $1,500 and $20,000, court records show. She was booked into the Travis County Jail on Friday with bail set at $35,000.
