Police 'did nothing after 911 call recorded abuse of boy, 9, who died six months later at the hands of his mother'

Nine-year-old Omaree Varela was found dead in December, his mother Synthia Casaus was arrested and charged with murder
She told police she 'kicked him the wrong way' while disciplining him and he fell and hit his head
Albuquerque Police had been to their home only six months earlier after the boy secretly recorded her and stepfather Steve Casaus berating him
The officers never followed up on the visit or even filed a report - they have been placed on paid leave pending an internal investigation
Child protective services had previously looked into allegations of abuse but took no action
Both parents have a history of drug, theft and prostitution convictions, the stepfather is a violent ex-felon



Desperate: Nine-year-old Omaree Varela made the secret 911 call last summer that recorded the horrifying abuse he encountered during his tragically short life


In custody: Mother Synthia Varela Casaus, 38, was taken into custody after admitting the boy died when she kicked him, police said


The stepfather: Steve Casaus, 41, can be heard shouting expletives at the boy, telling him he hates him and that he will never be his father



Two Albuquerque police officers have been put on leave after it was revealed they visited to the home of a nine-year-old boy 'murdered by his mother' after he made a desperate 911 call for help, but did little to help him.

Nine-year-old Omaree Varela secretly called 911 last June while mother Synthia Casaus and stepfather Steve Casaus berated him during an expletive-filled rant filled with threats of violence, but officers making a visit to the home decided no further action was necessary. He was found dead six months later.

Lapel video of the police visit shows the young boy tragically standing in the doorway as officers leave a home run by two serial criminals with rap sheets brimming with drug, violence and prostitution convictions.

The mother told police she 'kicked him the wrong way' when confronted about his death,' according to the Albuquerque Journal. Synthia Varela said he hit his head, that it was an accident.

'As of February 4 the two officers who were dispatched on the call have been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an internal affairs investigation,' Albuquerque Chief Administrative Officer Rob Perry told ABC News.

The chilling 911 call broadcast by KOAT was made by Omaree Varela from his mother’s cell phone during what she later tells police is a return trip from Wendy’s.

‘I swear I'm going to f*****g have a nervous breakdown, mainly because of this s**t right here,’ Steve Casaus, 41, can be heard saying..’ You make everybody sick around you Omaree. Everybody! You make me and your mom f*****g sick man! I can't stand you Omaree.’

The outburst was prompted by the child mistakenly spilling food.

‘It’s on me, not on nothing else,’ Omaree pleads.

‘It doesn’t f*****g matter,’ the man replies.


Just a child: Omaree was only nine-years-old when he was found dead

The 911 call was the second made by the doomed child in less than a year, but officers Scott McMurrough and Gil Vigil decided to not file a report during a visit after the nearly 20 minute call for help.

The boy complains about a bruise, both parents mock him.

‘He's a s**t, everything f*****g hurts you,’ says Steve Casaus.

‘How can it hurt you one day and not the next day Omaree? It doesn't, does it?! You just want attention right!?’ Synthia Casau, 38, adds.

The abusive parents are unaware the ranting is being recorded and begin threatening violence on the boy.

‘Yeah, f*****g beat the s**t out of you Omaree,’ the man says.

Now crying, Omaree shouts ‘stop, please.’

‘Shut the f**k up before I really pop you hard man,’ Steve Casaus fires back.

‘You caused this on yourself Omaree, cause you don’t want to f*****g change do you?’ His known-prostitute mother shouts.

‘And you want me to be your dad? F**k you! I ain't gonna be s**t to you. Don't you even f*****g look at me as your dad. F**k you Omaree! F**k you,’ says the man.

‘I never hated nobody like you in my life, ever,’ Steve Casaus continues. ‘You know that Omaree. I hate you more than I ever hated anybody in my whole life. And I've been on this earth 41 years, and nobody made me feel the way you do Omaree.’



Fatal mistake: Police never questioned the boy without his accused tormentors present


From a blood transfusion: Both parents claim the bruise they were discussing came from blood transfusion Synthia Casaus underwent


Cops asked during the visit, video of which was made public by KOAT, if there was any yelling going on, both adults nervously blamed it on neighbors that ‘always drink.’

Both parents talked nervously, their cadence varied and they gave off the impression they had something to hide.

‘No, not here, the people next door, they always have yelling,’ she said.

When told the 911 call was recorded and it would be reviewed, the mother tried to explain away her yelling by saying a toddler tried to hand her a soda and spilled it all over her.

‘That’s the reason why they say not to give them Coke,’ she insisted.

When asked about comments regarding a bruise, the mother said it was hers, and from a blood transfusion.

The officers asked to see the children. When brought out, they were silent – perhaps afraid of retribution for telling the truth about what happened during their ride home.

The two cops never asked to speak to the children alone, but quickly decided everything was okay and went on their way.


‘You seem like a good family, decent family, just be careful’ one of the officers said, ‘I’m going to overlook it for now.’

'I have directed that Chief Banks conduct an immediate and thorough internal affairs investigation in order to get to the bottom of this case as quickly as possible,' Perry told ABC News.

The officers never filed a report, listened to the actual 911 call or notified child protective services.

The agency had looked into possible abuse after a teacher saw cuts and bruises on the boy eight months earlier, according to KOAT, but no action was taken.


Omaree Varela was found dead six months later, police arrested his mother and charged her with murder. She told cops she kicked the boy while disciplining him and he hit his head.

Officials now say the boy should have been questioned without his suspected abusers next to him, the call should have been reviewed and a report should have been filed.

‘They did not write a report in this case,’ police chief Allen Banks told KOAT. ‘(An officer) says, 'I'll call [child protective services,' but he never called.’

[COLOR="Purple"]Both parents were on parole after a combined 19 arrests between them.



Final resolution: No follow up action was taken by police despite being told the 911 call should have been listened to

I could not get past "I kicked him the wrong way."     

Is there a 'right' way to kick a child, or kick anyone for that matter.

Hope she gets kicked the right way where she is going

Can't believe they are suspended with pay. They should be fired.

OMGGG that's so sad...anytime a young child records and calls the police something is wrong. I wonder if they did that to him because he is black and where the father is?

And they be quick to take a child for the wrong damn reason. This is ridiculous.
