A man and his *foster* son are found in a truck along the highway, both
suffering from some sort of chemical poisoning. Upon further
investigation, cops find a body in a bag in the back of the pick-up. So is
it the wife??
Police investigate home, body found in pickup truck
SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- Police are at a home in connection
with the discovery of a body inside a pesticide truck found on Interstate
Authorities are investigating the home, near 47th Terrace and Southwest
117th Avenue, which is registered to a pickup truck found on I-95.
Officials investigated the scene with the immobile truck to find a sick
man and child inside the cabin and a body in a bag on the truck's bed.
The West Palm Beach Fire Department first discovered the truck Monday
morning. Several police and fire agencies, including HazMat crews, the FBI
and the Department of Children and Families, later responded to the scene.
The heavy police presence snarled traffic on I-95 for several hours.
Officials said 53-year-old George Barahona and his 10-year-old foster son,
Victor Vocter, were riding northbound on I-95 in the truck, when the child
reportedly suffered a seizure. Barahona also felt sick and pulled off to
the side of the road just north of Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard in West Palm
A road ranger discovered the disabled vehicle and notified authorities.
Officials said the two were exposed to a dangerous chemical. Barahona was
transported to the hospital where he has since been upgraded to stable
condition. The young boy suffered serious injuries and was taken to St.
Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach.

sibling of the badly injured little boy in the truck. These are only two of
four *adopted* kids of this man.
Death of girl found in truck in West Palm Beach probed as abuse case
The body found inside a truck in Palm Beach County turned out to be the
10-year-old adoptive daughter of the Miami-Dade driver.
Eight hours after 10-year-old Victor Doctor stumbled out of his adoptive
father's pickup truck overcome by toxic fumes, Florida child welfare
investigators dispatched to the boy's West Miami-Dade home on Monday were
confronted with a startling question: Where was Victor's twin sister?
The answer would turn the red truck, near I-95 in West Palm Beach, into a
crime scene: The girl was found inside a bag, dead, in the bed of the
Both Victor and his twin, who has not been identified by police or child
welfare administrators, had been the subject of a troubling call to the
Department of Children & Families' abuse hotline only four days earlier. The
children, a schoolteacher said, were being bound hand-and-feet with duct
The children, the report said, were being untied only so they could eat.
In the aftermath of Monday's tragedy, two other children who were adopted by
Jorge L. Barahona, Victor's adoptive father, were taken into custody by DCF
Tuesday. Their case will be heard Wednesday before Circuit Judge Cindy
Lederman, who has been asked to place them, once again, in foster care.
Jorge Barahona was charged late Tuesday by West Palm Beach police with
aggravated child abuse, police told reporters at a Tuesday night news
conference. "We expect other charges to be forthcoming," said police
spokesman Chase Scott.
