ZAPOPAN, MEXICO – A disgusting saga is getting worse, after a 9-year old girl reportedly gave birth in Zapopan, Mexico.

State prosecutors determined the little girl named Dafne is actually between the ages of 12 and 13-years-old, not nine, as her parents originally claimed. It took an anthropological study to determine Dafne’s age, since her birth certificate was hard to come by. Why, exactly, her parents lied about her age? That’s still up in the air.

It gets worse.

Police were on the hunt for the father of the baby, believed to be the girl’s 17-year-old boyfriend. Sadly, police didn’t have to look very far. Authorities say the baby’s father is actually Dafne’s 44-year-old step-father. Sick.

The step-father is under arrest. But no amount of justice can give back what is supposed to be an important part of a woman’s life. No, that’s been robbed from this little girl.
