What prompted us to write about this baby girl was the rain we received the other day. Some say that rain is tears from God… Its a somber thought but in any event this baby’s story must become known to all and perhaps this may help stop another atrocity.
In December of 2011, a known criminal with a well documented twenty-year criminal history raped and murdered a ONE MONTH OLD BABY GIRL. Let me me repeat that: a known criminal with a well documented twenty-year criminal history raped and murdered a ONE MONTH OLD BABY GIRL. This makes one perplex how could anyone hurt a one month old baby? For even the people with a harden heart cannot understand these actions.
In any of our Eye stories you will not hear us mention the offenders name and the reason for this is; they deserve absolutely no recognition for their evil acts. Instead we concentrate on the victim and other facts.
According to the Albuquerque Journal (READ IT HERE), the offender of this heinous and violent crime was deported to Mexico in August of 2011. This criminal re-entered the United States illegally. Based on this offender’s’ past criminal record, he did not enter the United States of America to escape poverty or political oppression; he enter the United States to continue his violent malice criminal behavior. Top management claims that the best indicator of future performance is past performance. Is there any doubt in anyone’s mind what this criminal is going to do next?
This offender was deported a total of two times. According to the US Border Patrol spokesperson Zamirripa in an email to the Journal, “Anyone who re-enters the United States after being formally deported following an aggravated felony conviction commits a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.” Zamirripa also stated Possession of a Controlled Substance is considered an aggravated felony. This offender was convicted of Possession of a Controlled Substance before he was deported. Who cares if it’s 50 years? This person should not have been allowed to continue his crime spree. This offender has a violent criminal history dating back twenty years.
While the mother of the baby went shopping and to the casino the one month old baby girl was left with the baby’s grandmother’s boyfriend. The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the home early on December 29, 2011. When deputies arrived they found a one month old girl deceased. According to the complaint, the baby had injuries consistent with a sexual assault and bruises to her face and chest.
The offender admitted that he used Meth according to the complaint. According to the Journal story, the offender stated, “He heard the baby girl choking, took her from her crib and began to pat her in the back, but later began to punch her back.” This piece of garbage was punching a one month old baby in the back.
In a story on Channel 7 News (READ IT HERE) it states according to the criminal complaint, “an autopsy revealed the baby had numerous rib fractures in different stages of healing, brain bleeds, a lacerated liver and anal and vaginal tearing.” This monster did the unthinkable to this helpless innocent baby girl.
Most recently the monster who brutally abused, raped and murdered this child wants the charges dropped according to the Channel 7 News story above. According to Channel 7 less than a month after his arrest, a grand jury indicted the offender on charges of first-degree murder, child abuse and aggravated criminal sexual penetration. There has been no movement in the case since the GJ indictment. Now the offender’s public defender, Jeff Buckles, will argue to throw the case out.
This falls squarely on none other than Bernalillo County District Attorney, Kari Brandenburg. As you recall the Eye On Albuquerque pointed out Brandenburg’s terrible record and endorsed her opponent, Lisa Torraco, for D.A. Those who voted for Brandenburg can partially be responsible if this baby rapist/murder goes free. As the Chief Law Enforcement Officer for the County, Brandenburg should be held criminally and civilly liable for the action or lack thereof from her office. You cannot say you did not know what a failure Brandenburg was; we told you about it.
If you see or suspect ANY TYPE of abuse or neglect of ANY CHILD report it immediately to law enforcement. Do not let this baby’s death be meaningless. We cumulatively must do everything within our power to put an end to child abuse and neglect. It doesn’t matter rather it is your child or my child; I would take a bullet for any child as would any other parent, grandparent or any other decent person. The Eye On Albuquerque still advocates the death penalty for this type of offense.
