Two Girls Drown

The two five-year-old girls drowned in a backyard pool after one of the girl’s grandmother — who is the live-in housekeeper — allegedly chatted on a phone indoors for 45 minutes.

Questions have arisen whether or not the Dallas, Texas girls, Mia Penoyer and Sophia Juarez, actually drowned or if fowl play was involved.

Suspicion of what occurred that June 10 day has been fueled by several troubling details.

According to Daily Mail, it was a rainy Sunday afternoon when the girls were found dead in the pool both fully clothed.

Also, according to police Sophia was able to swim.

All signs point to the fact that the girls had not set out to go swimming that day, but it is unclear how exactly their deaths occurred.

Mia and Sophia were under the care of Mia’s 58-year-old grandmother, who was a live in housekeeper for the Juarez family, while the family was at the grocery store.

The girls’ bodies were found later that afternoon by Sophia’s 10-year-old brother.
