Jessica Tata ran a day care center in Houston, Texas. She ran the day care center but did not run it well. On February 24, 2011, there was a fire at the day care center that caused the death of 4 children under Tata’s care. It was reported that there were no adults in the day care center when it was on fire. Law enforcement officials have charged Jessica Tata with the crimes of reckless injury to a child, abandoning a child under the age of 15, and manslaughter. It is believed that Tata fled to Nigeria. Currently, Jessica Tata is on the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) 15 Most Wanted List. See Day Care Owner Added to “Most Wanted List”.
Hopefully, law enforcement authorities will be able to track her down and get Ms. Tata in custody to face these most serious criminal charges. Yes, Ms. Tata will be entitled to defend herself from the charges but it may be an uphill battle to justify or excuse her conduct. With the power of the Internet and Technology, Ms Tata may not be safe or immune from arrest even in Nigeria. Where in the world is Jessica Tata? If you see her or happen to know or hear of her whereabouts, contact your local law enforcement office or the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation).
