“It’s my fault he’s dead!” Mayra Rosales was crying about her nephew, two-year-old Eliseo Rosales Jr. “I was trying to pick him up, and I slipped and fell on him!” Her story was easy to believe: Rosales weighed 1,036 pounds. In La Joya, March 18, 2008, located in Texas’ southern tip, and EMTs had responded to a call of little Eliseo’s having difficulty breathing. Upon arrival, the baby was also suffering a severe head injury. They rushed Eliseo to the hospital, but nothing could save him. The handsome little boy succumbed to his injuries. Mayra’s 20-year-old sister Jaime Lee Rosales was Eliseo’s mother. Jamie and her husband Eliseo, Sr. and their children lived with Mayra and Mayra’s husband in a simple home in a quiet suburban neighborhood. Jamie had a history with Child Protective Services. In April, Jamie had signed a “Safety Plan” that included the caveat she would not leave her children with Mayra due to Mayra’s “disabilities.” Still, Jamie often left her children with her sister. Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Offices arrested Mayra for injuring a child and failing to protect a child. She had to be booked, fingerprinted, and her mugshot taken in her bedroom, then released on a personal recognizance bond because her massive bulk kept her bedridden. Jamie Lee, also arrested, was taken to the Hidalgo County Jail and held on a $50,000 bond. It seemed an open-closed case. Then the autopsy revealed Eliseo had died from massive blunt force trauma, not the kind of wounds suffered from someone falling on him, not even a woman weighing half a ton. There were “multiple skull fractures on the forehead and upper and lower rear parts of Eliseo’s skull (and) fractures that were estimated to be about a month old” (“800-pound Aunt”).
