According to the arrest affidavit, Bishop-Torrence, the victim's father, was on his way out the door to purchase fast food when noticed his daughter breathing shallowly, and rattling when she exhaled. He immediately rushed her out to his friend¿s car waiting outside, and transported her to the emergency room at United Regional Hospital.

Upon arrival at the hospital, medical staff discovered the child to be severely malnourished, with dirt plastered on her skin, as well as small, circular blisters on her lower back and buttocks.


The one-year-old weighed eight pounds, far below the average weight of 22 to 24 for a one-year-old.

The victim's mother, Wright, told police she hadn't been able to bond with the victim as well as she had with her two other children.

Bishop-Torrence, the victim's father, told police he lives with his wife, Wright, and their three children - the victim and two other daughters, according to Wichita Falls Times Records News.

When police inquired when the victim last received a medical checkup, Bishop-Torrence could not provide officials with any information. 

In addition, Bishop-Torrence admitted he, 'f**ked up' and did not notice the severity of his daughter's condition during his police interview.

An autopsy conducted at the Dallas County Medical Examiner/Southwestern Institute of Forensic Science Office discovered no acute trauma responsible for the victim's death. The autopsy identified physical finding consistent with neglect.

During a forensic assessment of the case, Dr. Suzanne Dakil, Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, discovered that the victim had been able to eat and gain weight well.

Dakil suspects the victim stopped receiving adequate nutrition sometime after October.

'Even though a small chance exists that a genetic or metabolic problem could cause weight loss, normal newborn screens and the lack of family history would make this highly unlikely,' she wrote in the report.

Both parents are being held in the Wichita County Jail on bonds of $500,000. On Saturday, June 19, 2021, they both declared indigency and requested court-appointed attorneys.
