Who is Nasha Soto?
According to her Facebook profile, Nasha Soto (nicknamed NaNa) is a 23-year-old mother of three boys. She hails from New York where she attended the Evander Childs Educational Campus. She later settled in Elizabeth, New Jersey with her husband Chris. The couple has been married since August 2010.
Soto belongs to the Dominican-American ethnicity and completed her education at Union County College in New Jersey. Since 2018, she had been working as a nanny and babysitter at Nana's Nannies. She also worked as a customer service assistance at a cleaning home till 2020.
The toddler who died is presumed to be Soto's youngest child. A little after 5 pm on June 9, 2021, the boy fell from the 10-feet high rear window in the third story of their family home. The two family dogs, who were identified by neighbors as Pitbulls, were present at the fenced backyard where the boy fell. They immediately attacked the youngster and brutally mauled him. Around 5:30 pm, police arrived at the house to find the boy critically injured, with neck injury from the fall and bite wounds all over his body. He died within an hour of being transferred to the hospital.
A neighbor who heard the screams of the family, found a man running to the front of the house carrying the bruised child as he yelled for help. Another neighbor Maria Rocha described the dogs as scary, saying, "The dogs were bad, the dogs, everybody was scared of the dogs. As soon as the baby fell, the dogs attack him." She added, "My heart is broken. I didn't sleep all night. I cannot believe this happened."
A similar incident happened in New Jersey a few months ago when Aziz Ahmed and his mother were mauled by their neighbor's Pitbulls and were hospitalized with severe wounds.
