Las Cruces, New Mexico (The Weekly Vice) - Elvira Talavera Perez, a 43-year-old former nanny also known as "Elvira Torres" was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly caught on a nanny-cam, shoving a soiled baby wipe down a baby's throat.
According to Las Cruces police, in July 2011, Perez was hired by a family to care for a 10-month-old child. Five months later, the couple began noticing that several of their items were missing, including gold chains and earrings. They decided to set up a hidden "nanny-cam" in their bedroom in attempt to catch Perez in the act. What they recorded was far more disturbing.
Investigators say video showed Perez shoving a soiled baby wipe in the child's mouth, and throwing them in his face. Perez even dropped a dirty diaper on the toddler's face. The video also captured Perez stealing jewelery from the couple.
Perez was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center and charged with three counts of negligent child abuse. She is being held in lieu of a $30,000 bond.
