Elisa Baker is currently being held in the Catawba County jail on a felony obstruction of justice charge. Police say she admitted to writing a fake ransom letter to purposely throw off investigators in their search for the missing girl.
WBTV has uncovered new details about Elisa Baker. She has been married at least three times, and she had children with two boyfriends. She describes herself as "gothic" and claims to have graduated from college.
Baker is originally from Burke County. Her parents are Marshall Thomas Fairchild and Sylvia Jean Fairchild. The mother's maiden name is Barnes.
Baker has at least three biological children that we were able to find information about.
According to MySpace and Facebook, one of Baker's daughters is Brittany Starbuck.
Baker's second daughter is Amber Fairchild, but Baker was never married to the child's father.
Baker's first marriage was in 1985 to Jerry Alan Winkler in Caldwell County. In 1997, she was married to Jeffrey Russell Allred in Caldwell County.
Her third marriage was to Adam Baker, whom she met online. They were married about two years ago.
We were unable to find a record of Elisa and Adam's marriage in North Carolina, but it is possible they were married elsewhere or possibly in Australia. There is a picture of them holding a marriage certificate on Amber Fairchild's MySpace page.
We also found several pictures from Amber's page including photos of Zahra with her prosthetic leg, Adam and Elisa on their wedding day, Elisa with a blackeye, and Elisa with Zahra.
We were unable to find any convictions against Elisa Baker on file with the North Carolina Department of Corrections.
