Father of missing Texas girl now claims she died choking on milk

Posted October 25, 2017

Sherin Mathews, the three-year-old Indian girl missing for over two weeks, is dead, U.S. police said on Tuesday hours after her foster father admitted that she choked while drinking milk.

The medical examiner's office has yet to positively identify the child's body, but police said "indications are that it is most likely" the body of Sherin Mathews. He initially claimed he had left her outside around 3 a.m.as punishment "because she wouldn't drink her milk", according to a probable cause document relating to an earlier charge leveled against the father.

Mathews was later arrested and charged with abandoning or endangering a child before being released on $250,000 bond.

Earlier, Mathews had told police that after Sherin refused to drink her milk on the night of October 7, he took her outside to discipline her and told her to stand by a tree in their backyard.

Wesley is now in the Richardson City Jail and his bond has been set at $1,000,000.

The investigation into her death is continuing and additional charges are possible, police said.

Police in Richardson said Wesley Mathews is facing a felony count of injury to a child, the police department said in a statement on Monday night. It is unclear if the body is of the missing 3-year-old.

What was Sherin's father's previous version of events? She had to be fed whenever she was awake, Perlich said.

Perlich said the Mathews previously told police that the girl had developmental disabilities and was malnourished when they adopted her from India.

Mathews was previously charged with child endangerment. Investigators wrote that he "then admitted to removing the body from the home".

Wesley Mathews had said that he made his adopted daughter Sherin Mathews stand outside near a tree at 3 a.m.as punishment more than two weeks ago for not drinking her milk, and that she disappeared, CNN reported. Wesley Mathews then physically assisted the 3-year-old girl in drinking the milk.

The FBI seized dozens of items from the family's home and their vehicles between 8- 12 October, including a washer and dryer, electronics and DNA swabs. According to the NBC 5 report, Wesley Mathews and his wife, Sini Mathews, attended a court hearing on Monday for the custody of their child.

A spokeswoman for the state agency said family members in Fort Bend County, outside Houston, have expressed interest in taking care of the girl, but that a judge will decide where she is placed. He did not specify how far the road was from Mathews' property.

It was Mathews's second arrest in the case.
