A Bexar County sheriff’s deputy, testifying Monday in a horrific child-abuse case, said he freed a toddler tethered like an animal to a door, then saw a boy who he thought was dead.

Deputy Louis Estrada was one of three officers who provided emotional testimony on the opening day of the trial of Deandre Jerome Dorch, who was 36 when he was charged with two counts of injury to a child-serious bodily injury.

The two children were found crying in the backyard of a home in the 8100 block of Chipping in the Camelot II subdivision on the Northeast Side on April 28, 2016. One had cried for at least seven hours before a neighbor called 911.

Estrada choked up on the stand when he told the jury that the children were tied so tightly that they could barely move. He said deputies decided to break protocol and photograph the siblings — a 4-year-old boy and a 3-year-old girl — so they could document what they saw.

Dr. Katherine Snyder with Dell Children's Medicla Center of Central Texas talks about child abuse prevention.

“This was something I knew was not right, was not normal,” Estrada said.
