Elisa Baker: Zahra Baker Stepmother Myspace Found
Elisa Baker: Zahra Baker Stepmother Myspace Found – Elisa Baker, the stepmother of the missing Zahra Baker, describes herself on her MySpace page as a “gothic,” and has a number of devil-related images posted on her MySpace profile. She has been described as a “person of interest” in the disappearance of the ten year old girl. Even her husband said that he believed that she could have had something to do with the disappearance of his daughter.
Family members have told officials that the girl lived a “miserable life.” They say that she was locked in her room for most of the day. Zahra had survived cancer, but came out of the ordeal with two hearing aids and a prosthetic leg. She was regularly beaten by her stepmother, and was rarely allowed out of the house.
Police were called to the home at 5 AM after there was a report of a brush fire on the property.
A search warrant was issues, and officers found a random note in a vehicle in the house. Elisa Baker would later admit that she wrote the note, which demanded one million dollars for the safe return of Zahra Baker.
Her MySpace profile included one picture of Zahra. The caption read “The Dark Child, LOL!” leading some to believe that Elisa was not fond of Zahra. Neighbors also told officials that they witnessed signs of problems in the home over the course of the last few years and wish that they had acted sooner. Of course, hindsight is 20/20.
