Zahra Baker's Parents Plead With Elisa Baker for Girl's Skull


The gir's father said he didn't realize that his daughter was dead because he returned home from work late and left early, and would be told by his wife that Zahra was in bed. Adam Baker said he would look in at his girl's dark bedroom and would see something in her bed that he assumed was Zahra.

When the girl was first reported missing, the couple claimed that she was kidnapped. Elisa Baker was later arrested for forging a $1 million ransom note.

Elisa Baker has a questionable past. She was married to another man when Adam Baker moved to the United States to be with her. Her husband was living across the street from her and Elisa Baker lied to Adam Baker, telling him the man was her brother. Her guilty plea to bigamy charges stems from this lie.
