An 11-year-old child reportedly gave birth to a baby in the family’s bathtub.

The parents and the girl’s brother have been arrested.

The parents are facing charges of child endangerment and the 17-year-old brother is being charged with incest, statutory rape, and statutory sodomy.

The hospital called the police when a newborn baby was brought in with the umbilical cord and placenta still attached.

The father lied to authorities and said that the baby was his. He said that his mistress who he impregnated dropped the baby off at his house.

However later, he recanted that story and admitted the child belonged to his 11-year-old daughter and that his son was the father of the newborn.


Three relatives of an 11-year-old girl who gave birth in the bathtub of her suburban St. Louis home are facing criminal charges.

Lesbia Cante and Francisco Javier Gonzalez-Lopez each face a charge of child endangerment, while Norvin Leonidas Lopez-Cante, 17 is charged with incest, as well as statutory rape and statutory sodomy of a child younger than 12.

All three live in St. Charles, Missouri.

Police started investigating after Gonzalez-Lopez brought an infant to a hospital on Feb. 11.

In an interview with detectives, KSDK reports that Gonzalez-Lopez told police that the father of the child was his son, Lopez-Cante, and that the mother was the teen’s 11-year-old relative.

Thank God these people actually brought the baby to the hospital. You hear this sick and twisted story from this demented family and you imagine a much more grisly ending.

It’s also fair to note that the father has been previously deported, but of course, returned illegally back into the United States.

The parents claim they were not aware that their daughter was being raped by their son. Meanwhile, the “brother” told investigators that he’s had sex with his sister about “100 times.”
