Foster mom of Sherin Mathews denies any involvement in death of 3-year-old

Sherin’s father Wesley Mathews originally told police his daughter disappeared while being forced to stand outside by a tree for not drinking milk. Later when the body was found, he changed his story and said that his daughter choked to death after he “physically assisted” her in drinking her milk.

The foster mother of a 3-year-old Indian girl, whose body was found on Sunday from a culvert near their home in suburban Dallas, has denied any involvement in the death of her daughter.

Lawyers Michelle Nolte and Gregg Gibbs, representing Sini Mathews published a statement late Wednesday saying she denied any involvement in the death of her adoptive daughter.

The statement adds, “Now that Mr Mathews has turned himself into the police and told them what happened to Sherin, we see no need for Mrs Mathews to endure further police interrogation. She had nothing to do with Sherin’s death or the removal of her body from the home.”

The lawyers write that Mathews is “trying to grieve for her lost daughter while still caring for her remaining daughter. She is struggling to pick up the pieces of a shattered life.”
