‘Nine-Year-Old’ Mexican Girl Who Gave Birth Is Really Aged 12 and the Baby’s Father Is Her Stepfather

Daniel Bates, Daily Mail (London), February 13, 2013

Mexican state officials confirmed that the girl who gave birth to a child two weeks ago is 12 or 13 years old and not 9-years-old like her mother previously claimed.

The officials also confirmed that her 44-year-old stepfather is the father of the child and not her teenage boyfriend.

MailOnline was in Guadalajara last week and was the first to reveal neighbor’s suspicions that the girl, identified only as Dafne, was older than her mother initially said.

Multiple sources told MailOnline that it was ‘highly likely’ that Dafne was not the age her mother claimed she was when she went into hospital with her daughter in labour.

Now government officials have used DNA tests to confirm the identity of the baby’s father after she originally told hospital workers that her 17-year-old boyfriend had impregnated her.

State prosecutors reportedly did an anthropological study of the girl, which was not described in detail, which helped them to conclude that she is between 12 and 13 years old.

Multiple sources told MailOnline that it was ‘highly likely’ that Dafne was not the age her mother claimed she was when she went into hospital with her daughter in labour.

One explanation for the ongoing saga is that her mother – who MailOnline is not naming to protect Dafne’s privacy – may have been trying to get her into school for the first time as she had not gone until now.

Another more sinister reason could have been if, as has been claimed by neighbours, the mother is a prostitute who is trying to turn Dafne into a sex worker too, a nine-year-old could command a higher fee from clients than a teenager.

Although Dafne has a birth certificate, the circumstances under which it was obtained are unclear.

It only emerged a year and two months ago when she tried to go to school for the first time and was told she needed it.

Neighbours have described Dafne as ‘kind and very sweet’ and said she looked much older than nine.

A woman who lives next door, in her early 20s, said that Dafne was tall for her age, appeared well developed, with a light complexion and long blonde hair which goes past her shoulders.

Another twist would be that if Dafne’s real age is 15 or higher then her boyfriend sleeping with her would not even be a crime.

It is only an offence under Mexican law to sleep with somebody aged 14 or younger.

The birth certificate, issued on November 17, 2011, shows that Dafne was born on Monday March 6 2003, which makes her nine.

She would have been the same age when she fell pregnant.

On the birth certificate the stepfather is also named as the father.

The birth certificate was issued by the town hall in the municipality of Ixtlahuacan De Los Membrillos, where Dafne and her family have been living for six years.

Dr Sergio Ramon Quintero Gonzalez, the district president, told MailOnline that Dafne’s mother was not from his area.

He said: ‘The first contact we had with this family was when they came in asking for the birth certificate.

‘They were interviewed and I only saw them briefly when they came in to be interviewed.

‘We issued the document to support the child going to school, but she didn’t go to school. We helped them but they didn’t do anything with it.

‘A lot of people here are concerned this has happened and hoped it would happen somewhere else.’

Jose Ramirez, media coordinator for the Jarisci prosecutor’s office, said: ‘We are going back through the archives to try and find out exactly when she was born.

‘She is not originally from here so we are having to do a thorough search. The girl will be given a medical examination to see exactly how old she is. It is highly likely that the girl is older than nine years old.’

Mr Ramirez added that as a matter of routine, all of the stepfather’s male relatives were being given a DNA test to eliminate them from the investigation and make sure they are not the father.

Preliminary results will come back in 72 hours, although the full tests will not be known for two weeks.

Lina Ginzalez Corona, head spokesman for the Jarisco Prosecutor’s office, told MailOnline that so far there had been no arrests and no charges filed. He said: ‘The girl is still insisting that it is her boyfriend who got her pregnant. The problem is that we don’t know where the guy is so we are looking for him.

‘When we find him we will see what he really did. This is an active investigation and we are pursuing it.’

He added that if it turns out the boyfriend did make Dafne pregnant and she was under age then he could be jailed for up to seven years.

Dr Quintero Gonzalez added that there were now serious questions over whether or not Dafne’s boyfriend – originally believed to be the father of the child – even exists.

He said: ‘Dafne’s mother said that the boyfriend is from the neighborhood but nobody has heard of him.

‘We have no name and nobody knew he was her boyfriend.’

Dafne’s neighbours had similar suspicions. One told MailOnline: ‘We never saw any boyfriend at their house.’

If it turned out to be her stepfather as some have claimed, he would be tried as an adult and could be put away for between 12 and 20 years.

Dafne’s baby was born by C-section on January 27 in Zoquipan Hospital, in Zapopan, Mexico’s western Jalisco state weighting 5.95lbs.

Both girls are doing fine and in a healthy condition. According to Dafne’s mother the girl was eight at the time she got pregnant but she didn’t realize she was expecting until she was seven months gone.

The mother – who can’t read or write – supposedly didn’t even think that it was a crime that somebody so young having sex could be a criminal offense until she turned up at the hospital.

It now appears the Dafne has not been sterilized as earlier reports suggested but has been surgically fitted with an implant that will stop her getting pregnant.

The device can be removed by a surgeon and in theory she can have another baby.

Dafne’s mother has reported the Zoquipan Hospital to the local human rights commission because she claimed she did not approve the procedure.

But in a press conference health commissioner Munoz Serrano said that he had a note in which she gave her written permission.

Dafne, her mother, her stepfather – and her newborn baby girl – left their 7ft by 25ft breeze block home in the run down suburb of Colonial los Olivos in a taxi on Wednesday night hours before police and the local mayor showed up to speak with them.

Lurid claims have since been made against the step father including that has abused one of his own daughters and used to beat Dafne and share a bath with her.

    I am sure these are budding Rick Santorum voters just waiting for their chance to immigrate.

    • The__Bobster

      A poster child for Sanatorium. After all, she didn’t have an abortion, right?

      • TeutonicKnight67

        Abortion for whites is racial suicide. We are not having enough children. It should be discouraged for OUR people.

        • Joseph

          It seems to be mostly white liberals aborting/not having children and low-brow pole dancers. Who needs THAT sort of whites anyway? No?

          The problem is that middle-class, more conservative whites just decide “We can’t afford it right now”.

          • TeutonicKnight67

            Disagree. We need numbers. Our racial competitors harbor no such illusions. Quibbling about quality only accelerates our numerical decline. My cousin should never have had to adopt outside the U.S. just to have children. There are plenty of childless white couples desperate to have children who can’t for a multitude of reasons. Why is it so difficult to find adoptable white children? Why is it so expensive? Why is there a black market for them? Answer: supply and demand. It is difficult and expensive because they are so rare. Most white women, I surmise, either keep their baby or kill it. Releasing the child for adoption never seems to be an option to them.

        • Carlos Geary

          There are enough white male donors in fertility clinics. What about inseminating white childless women over 40?

  • SoCal LoCal

    This is a classic Mexican good-news, bad-news story.

  • “Blonde” to them often means brown hair to us. Her mother, the prostitute (can I say, “whore” here?), probably slept with some gringo about 15 years ago.
    Coming soon, more stories like this one will be making their way north of the Rio Grande, and you and I will be footing the bill.

    • Carlos Geary

      In the mexican state of Jalisco, blondes of northern spaniard and french ancestry are common. Mexico was un

  • Boereseun

    Wow, mother probably trying to push her own child into prostitution. Step father abusing her and impregnating her… really such a delightful story about family bonds. Sorry Democrats and RINOs, what’s the reason you want these people in your country again?

    • ArmenianWN

      If white Canadians snuck into America and constantly voted republican, Obama would be building endless walls and enforcing border security like no president before.

      • josh

        what if the southern border had Nazis coming over carrying gas chambers? Would we close it up then? Or Iranians with little nuclear bombs.

        • ArmenianWN

          I don’t know about Nazis, but Obama would love Iranians coming over, because:
          1. They are not white
          2. They will vote for him (redundant)
          3. They share his religion
          4. They hate America (like he does)
          5. They are not white
          6. etc….

          • Since when aren’t Iranians (the original Aryans) White?

          • ArmenianWN

            No, the original Aryans were not white. Aryan used to be a term to describe the multiple nomadic tribes which lived in (modern day) Eastern Iran and Western Pakistan and parts of Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. The original Aryans conquered India and Many other places in southern Asia. This is why most historians (or at least the ones here in Armenia) believe Hitler coined the Aryans’ name (which is now most commonly used to refer to a white German) as well as their symbol (the Swastika) for his government in Germany, as he aspired to have White Germans to conquer Europe and much of the world, just as the Aryans conquered nearly all of southern Asia. Plus, if you ever go to Iran, you can see that the people aren’t white at all and look more like the “crosspoint” between an Indian and an Arab. Just look up pictures of Ahmadinejad on the Internet. That’s all I know.

  • The__Bobster

    No problemo. The age of consent in Mejico is twelve.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it is all the way up at 14 in some of their states.

  • newscomments70

    When the pedophile is white, he is called a pedophile. When the pedophile rapist is black, muslim, or hispanic, the liberal media press calls him a “boyfriend” or “lover”.

    • Magician

      or “father”

  • rebelcelt

    Is it just me….but what the …..9. 12 maybe 13…Does she not know how old she is? Is there any birth certificate. Passport..LOL

  • Neighbours have described Dafne as ‘kind and very sweet’ and said she looked much older than nine.

    She was only nine but she looked like she was ten, and ______ like she was eleven.

    • josh

      I heard Sen. Menendez cant wait to get down there!!! Ole!!

  • Robb

    Let’s all just be thankful that they didn’t make it across the border.

  • crystalevans

    I would not be surprised if she turns out to be 15 after all. As far as an abortion goes, it is legal only in Mexico City. In some states in Mexico, a woman can be jailed for having an abortion.

    • Felix_M

      And in many places in Latin America rape is a socially acceptable proposal of marriage.

      • crystalevans

        Sort of like in the Middle East, where women who are raped, are forced to marry their rapist.

  • Felix_M

    Family values south of the border. This is the sort of behavior we’re supposed to be welcoming? Gimme a break.

  • Johnny Clay

    What is it with Latinos and sex with underage girls? That and drunk driving without a license?

    • Felix_M

      Is this what they mean by “family values,” being related in more than one way?

      She’s not just your wife. Often she’s also your sister, your aunt or your mother.

      • newscomments70

        I think that the step-daughter is the most common victim in third world, incestual rape. They go after children typically, not an older relative.

    • josh

      no doubt their Indian heritage. It goes both ways,I hasten to add. young Latinas go for older guys.

    • The same with all “tropical” peoples & Gypsies. That’s the way they live.

    • Katherine McChesney

      I had a Mexican friend for a short time in L.A. She said her father and brothers raped her when she was growing up in order to prepare her for marriage. Even her mother sided with the males. Fortunately, she knew this was sick behavior and abandoned her family. She eventually chose to have only White friends. This was an accomplished artist, a great but single mother (her husband had cheated on her). Unfortunately, she took her resentment out on herself with a food addiction. She was so obese she couldn’t lie down to sleep.

      • Johnny Clay

        I’ve seen Latinos put make-up on infants and dress their pre-teen daughters like prostitutes with mini-skirts, plunging necklines, and high heels.

  • Seek

    I guess George W. Bush was right. Family values, of a sort anyway, don’t stop at the Rio Grande.

    • Felix_M

      This is what the Bush’s consider family values, someone had better give their family tree a closer look.

      • Sherman_McCoy

        Well, if there is an inbred aspect to the family tree, that would explain “W’s” intellect. Of course, we got to examine George’s college transcripts, as opposed to those of the current retard inhabiting the white house.

      • Katherine McChesney

        Jeb is married to a mexican. His family is severely dysfunctional. And remember, W said Islam is a religion of peace. He was slightly better. obama.

        • IstvanIN

          His brown son, George P. Bush, hates whites.

          • Nate Miller

            Wait! Bush has a brown son?

          • Katherine McChesney

            George P. is a jerk. He wants to enter politics.

          • Joseph

            “George P. is a jerk. He wants to enter politics.”

            If that’s the case, he’s a natural.

  • red_skull001

    Latino men are scum. They are no better than muslims except for the fact that they have a slightly higher opinion of canines.

  • Felix_M

    What’s the big problem, amigo? Not sleeping with your girlfriend’s daughter is so white.

    *sarcasm off*

  • obamamerica

    Sounds like a bonified future Obamamerican citizen on welfare and food stamps.

  • mobilebay

    Family values…coming to your country soon. Does our government hate us so much they will continue to inflict the third world on us? Eventually, who will pay the tab for their upkeep? Can’t expect unemployed American to foot the bill. That’s when we crash and burn.

  • jay11

    This sort of thing among mexicans goes on all the time, but is rarely reported. Women’s rights organizations sometimes talk about this, but in very muted ways. (Don’t want to offend ‘diversity’) In terms of ‘latino family values’ I work in a place full of latino teenagers, and our facility has the nickname ‘pregnancy high’ because of how many of the girls are pregnant at any given time. Now our school has been designated as a site to give out free birth control. Heretofore we’ve always given out free condoms. Guess that didn’t work.

  • jay11

    You do realize that in a year or two she will be offered asylum in this country and put on lifetime welfare.

  • She’s just getting a head start on pumping out future Democrat voters.

    Let us welcome them to our country!! They will contribute,as ur Lord and Savior might say!! The more trash the better!

  • red_skull001

    Pedophilia is a cultural practice of the Mexicans. The only difference between Mexicans and Muslims is that Mexicans have a slightly higher opinion of dogs.

  • bigone4u

    South Texas from San Antonio on down to the border is 60 percent Hispanic and above. This story would not be unusual in this part of the USA. Many girls are used by their fathers and brothers and uncles as their sex partners. I think most of it goes unreported since it’s an essential part of their culture, but in the local press you sometimes read about families prostituting their daughters out. One white fellow, a real nerd with no chance of ever getting a girlfriend, patronized a 12-year old Mexican-American prostitute pimped out by her family. The guy took pics and video and got 65 years in prison for child porn. I think the Mexican family only got 5 years for pimping her. The paper reported that the girl looked maybe 25 years old. I guess the takeaway is anyone patronizing a Mexican-American prostitute should check her ID for age. This is the insanity the federal government wants to be everywhere.

    • Nate Miller

      While I don’t condone the nerd’s action…65 years is way too much punishment for the poor guy. I mean its not like he raped her. She was a consenting adult who possibly would have passed off as a 17-18 year old. The federal govt. is busy trying to destroy our freedoms and rights. All they do is punish white men, while the Mexican pervs get a free pass in the name of diversity!

      • IstvanIN

        If he really thought she was an adult did he really commit a crime? Technically, but if he was tricked? On the other hand the “family” members who pimped her should get the 65 years.

    • Joseph

      “I guess the takeaway is anyone patronizing a Mexican-American prostitute should check her ID for age.”

      I don’t think it’s legal to demand ID from suspected Mexicans.

  • Titus

    This sounds like the equivalent of lower income White trash behavior in the rural south.

  • RHG

    My head hurts after reading this.

  • TwoFootTrucker

    I lived in Oaxaca, Mexico for three years, and I saw that the culture was ripe of raping and impregnating young girls. In 2007, the APPO broke out a revolution in the capitol —going door to dooor looking for the Governor. I left, and I`ve been a race realist ever since.
