Police responded to a 911 call at 4am last Thursday morning after the caller had indicated that an infant had died. In a tape later released by the aurhorities, the caller requested help saying a “baby was taking a bottle and choked and couldn’t stop, and the baby has now passed away.”
But when the authorities arrived, it became clear that this was no accident. They discovered the infant girl dead, with two black eyes, a bite mark on her cheek and pajamas soaked in blood.
Upon further medical examination, the child was also found to have suffered a bleeding brain, a lacerated liver, anal and vaginal tearing, and cracked ribs in various stages of healing—indicating the child’s entire 4 week life consisted of abuse. The cause of death was determined to be fatal sexual assault.
The mother of the child was at a casino at the time of the attack and is reported to be Galindo’s girlfriend, although he is currently married to another woman. It is also being reported that Galindo could be the father of this child. A DNA test is underway to determine the paternity as the mother was apparently seeing other men as well.
Galindo has claimed he was under the influence of meth amphetamines during the incident. He is now being held in an Bernalillo County Jail on a $1 million cash bond.
