The Tragedy on Feb 24, 2011

April 12, 2011

A 22-year-old woman will face at least one felony charge after a fire at her west Houston day care last week claimed the lives of four toddlers and injured three others.

Jessica Rene Tata is charged with reckless injury to a child involving serious bodily injury, according to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. The charge could be upgraded and more charges could be filed, officials said.

"We have requested that she be held at no bond," said Donna Hawkins, spokeswoman for the Harris County district attorney's office.

Tata operated a home-based day care where seven children were under her supervision when a fire broke out on Thursday afternoon.

A law enforcement source said Tata had left the children and had gone to a store when the blaze began.

When she returned with a bag of groceries and opened the door, smoke poured out of the house and she began screaming for help, a witness said.

Tata's brother, Ron Tata, 26, has denied those allegations, saying that she was at the house when the fire started and passed out.

Tata was not in custody of law enforcement Sunday night, said Houston Fire Department Chief Investigator Leo Gonzalez, who is heading the arson investigation into the fire. Gonzalez declined to give further details.

Asked if there would be other charges related to the case, Hawkins said, "The case remains under investigation. This charge is being filed."

The district attorney's office has not yet released details of the charge or its degree.

Reached late Sunday, District Attorney Pat Lykos said she could not detail the nature of the charges or a possible sentence.

Seven toddlers in home

The fire at the west Houston day care brought emergency responders into a frantic rush to rescue the seven toddlers, ranging in age from 16 months to 3 years, who were in Tata's care.

They rushed small unresponsive bodies out of the building and began administering CPR on the front lawn to as many as three children at a time.

Witnesses described firefighters with toddlers in their arms rushing down the street toward ambulances.

Four of the children died, Elias being one of them.

Jessica Tata had fled the country, but is now back in Houston, TX facing charges and is currently in jail.

To My Precious Son Elias,

April 7, 2011

My Precious Son Elias, God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So He put his arms around you and whispered "Come with Me." With tearful eyes I watched you, and saw you pass away. Although I loved you dearly, I could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke my heart to prove to me He only takes the best. Love Always and Forever, Your Mommy.

Dear Mommy & Daddy

April 6, 2011

                                                I'll Be There

Daddy please don't look so sad, Mama please don't cry. Cause I'm in the arms of Jesus and he sings me lullabies. Please try not to question GOD, don't think he is unkind. Don't think he sent me to you, and then changed his mind. You see I'm a special child and I'm needed up above. I'm the special gift you gave him, a product of your love. I'll always be there with you and watch the sky at night. Find the brightest star that's gleaming, that's my halo's brilliant light. You'll see me in the morning frost, that mist your window pane. That's me in the summer showers, I'll be dancing in the rain.When you feel a little breeze from a gentle wind that blows, that's me, I'll be there, planting a kiss on your nose. When you see a child playing and your heart feels a little tug, that's me I'll be there giving your heart a little hug. So Daddy please don't look so sad, and Mama please don't cry, because I'm in the arms of Jesus and he sings me lullabies.

Love you always and forever


Your Angel,

Elias Xavier Castillo
