Police probe Facebook post of girl bound with tape

Chicago police say detectives are investigating a man who allegedly posted a photograph on Facebook that shows his daughter's hands, legs and mouth apparently bound with duct tape.

Department spokesman Officer Veejay Zala says the state's Department of Children and Family Services is also investigating.

Zala says the man apparently posted the photograph on his Facebook page, with the words, "This is wut happens wen my baby hits me back."

He says the photograph has since been removed but did not have any details about when it was removed or why. Nor did he have any details about the man.

DCFS spokesman Kendall Marlowe says the agency has never investigated the father. He would not talk about whether DCFS has interviewed the child or the father.
