Special Victim’s Detectives searched the apartment in the 200 Block of East Avenue Q-10 where an 8-year-old boy lived with his mother and her boyfriend. The boy was hospitalized with critical injuries Wednesday night, and detectives suspect child abuse.

PALMDALE – A Palmdale mother and her boyfriend were arrested Thursday, after the woman’s young son was hospitalized with broken bones, burns and bruises throughout his body, authorities said.

Pearl Fernandez, 29, was arrested for felony child endangerment and child abuse, while her boyfriend, 32-year-old Isauro Aguirre was arrested for attempted murder, according to Sergeant Brian Hudson of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Special Victims Bureau.

Deputies responded to the couple’s apartment around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday night after they received a call from fire department paramedics about possible child abuse, Hudson said.

The family lived in a three-bedroom upstairs apartment (on left).

Fernandez’s 8-year-old son was battered and not breathing when authorities arrived; he had ligature marks on his ankles, burns on his body, and several other injuries, Hudson said.

The boy was rushed to Antelope Valley Hospital and then transferred to a children’s hospital in Los Angeles, where he was still in critical condition as of Thursday afternoon.

“He has a skull fracture, he has several broken ribs, and just bruising about his entire body,” Hudson said.

Detectives were investigating Thursday at the apartment complex where the couple lived with the boy and his older sister and brother in the 200 Block of East Avenue Q-10 in Palmdale.

Neighbor Claudia Segoviano (left) spoke to detectives. She said the mother dressed her son in a girl's dress as punishment.

A few neighbors said they heard scary screams and wails coming from the family’s three-bedroom upstairs apartment late Wednesday night, and one woman in an adjacent apartment building said she heard banging sounds.

A neighbor who spoke to detectives said she and several other residents at the complex suspected that something was wrong with the little boy for months.

“Everybody noticed, because he would come out to take out the trash and wouldn’t talk to nobody,” said Claudia Segoviano, whose apartment sits directly across the stairwell from the family.

Segoviano said the little boy seldom left the house, and she did not believe the boy even attended school.

Animal control officers removed several cats from the family's home.

She said she noticed greenish bruises on the little boy’s face, arms and legs many times when she saw him taking out the trash.

“I wanted to report it, but then when I would want to, I would always see a social worker, so I thought, ‘how can I report it if there’s already somebody involved in it?’” Segoviano said. “And I saw like one time the cops came when he was all messed up, and they left. [The boy] stayed there and they left.”

On a couple of occasions, Segoviano said she saw the young boy dressed in girls’ clothing.

“I saw him dressed up in a girl’s dress two times, my mom said she saw him three times,” Segoviano said, adding that the boy was also dressed in girls’ shoes.  She said she witnessed Fernandez ordering her son down the stairs while he was dressed as a girl.

“He was sad, you could tell, like nobody likes to be dressed as the opposite sex,” Segoviano said. “I asked my brother, ‘what happened to him?’ and my little brother said that was a form of punishment,” Segoviano added.

“I heard that same thing, but I cannot confirm that occurred,” Hudson said.

Authorities obtained a search warrant for the family’s apartment Thursday morning and detectives could be seen removing dresses from the apartment, while animal control officers removed a crate of cats.

“We found items of evidentiary value that will assist with the case,” Hudson said.  “There was nothing extraordinary about the condition of the apartment.”

The boy’s two older siblings, ages 10 and 12, were taken into protective custody, Hudson said. Authorities are still investigating whether the older siblings were abused as well.

    This isn’t a problem deep rooted in Government to who ever keeps mentioning political awareness or whatever. The problem here is the case worker handling the case and that department in general, persecute those as a start. Next, I don’t care who I would see at the boy’s home it could have been Barak Obama seen visiting, if I were to see the little boy the way these witnesses mentioned I would without a fraction of a doubt go talk to the boy and next knock on his apartment door and ask for some tools or something just to get a peep of what it might revolve in and continue vigilant on the situation like that because nobody in the right mind would ignore that type of scenario, I have a young sister and if that were to ever happen to her I’d fix the problem myself with my fists even if means going to jail, same would go for the boy even if I did not know him. That boy was defenseless,hopeless,outmatched, and overpowered in all aspects. These parents deserve to be beaten the same way then executed and revived 3 times before giving them a jail sentence, only then will they repent the sin committed and learn that what they did was wrong.

    Watching a news report about this, it’s shocked So Cal, anyway, a relative was wearing a green ribbon and she said because Gabriel had won an award at school for being the best reader, NO ONE came to see him get his award, and he was sporting a black eye on stage. This broke my heart as it has many people. I hope God has his justice for these two scum…they need the death penalty rapido!!!

            no DCFS just comes in and bothers the families that have no problems or abuse and accuses them of it and takes your children, and offer your kids candy and a puppy if they say they were hit. DCFS is a load of [removed] and does more harm then helping,funny how the cops even ignored it but hey they sent 8 sheriffs to my house on Friday with a bs complaint made by Pius Itodo..so in other words dont trust DCFS or the COPS they dont help at all

    I read in a post on Fb that the biological father claimed the body and had him cremated. Now there is a controversy regarding the fund raising for his funeral and the mother’s family deceiving the public. I wonder if the are going to use it for her defense?? Anyway, I wonder why his father was not aware of the abuse? I believe he lived out of state, but did he never speak to his child? Visit him or have any of his relatives visit? RIP little man. I am sorry you lived in
    hell, but God promised a paradise where there will be no memory of it, no tears, no pain.

    All this talk about drugs is ridiculous. those people were probably drug abusers but the drugs don’t make a person evil. These people are naturally evil as evil as you can get. Both of them are mentally ill but I wouldn’t say that that is a reasonable excuse for their actions. Drugs can change a person but it doesn’t make you completely heartless and make you want to hurt innocent children. For someone to say or even think that the reason this happened was because of drugs is a complete idiot and very ignorant. That mother did not love her son . It’s disgusting when women put a man before her own children. we live in a sick cruel world and its very heartbreaking to hear about this. All in due time Gabriel will be served his justice.

      Apparently you have never talked to a recovering addict about what they would do for their drugs or while on drugs. Parents as well as children have been beaten to death. At least one person has had their face chewed off. Countless robberies and home burglaries. Drugs make people act crazy. They will do things they wouldn’t ordinarily have done. Drugs are no excuse for the behavior and people need to take personal responsibility for what they do while under the influence.
      You made another statement about these people being crazy. I hope you were not saying crazy like crazy for an insanity plea. These people need to go to jail for a looooong time.
      Why this woman would take Gabriel from the loving home of his grand parents when all she was going to do was beat and abuse him, is a question I would like a real answer about. (from her)

        So you believe that drugs make nonviolent people violent? I don’t believe that..there are other issues going on in that mind of those who do violent crimes. I wouldn’t blame drugs completely. yes people commit nonviolent crimes to get their fix like steal. But they don’t go beating an innocent child to death. Yes they are insane. to witness some man beat my child I don’t care how high I am I wouldn’t allow it over my dead body

        Ladies, I know the feeling you’re describing because I’ve had it for a certain little boy since 2008. I used to think that there’s nothing we can do about child abuse except report it, but there is. We can campaign to make the penalties a lot stiffer.

    I just want to know why now…we pay for them to be protected? Why when we talk about laws that doesn’t change. Why doesn’t the justice system remind the community that after these ppl go to jail, because their crime will cause a GP inmate to harm them, we put them into a section to protect them? Why is that so over looked? Shout out to the Sheriff’s who “accidentally” put them in GP, to get hurt on accident. That should happen mandatory. Now she gets to have a girlfriend in Lynwood. She gets to sit there exchanging info with male inmates to write too. She’ll have pen pals, breakfast, lunch, dinner, phone calls. Ummm. No justice. Not in California at least.

    I know drugs must be involved in this case – Drugs can bring out absolute evil in some people and they totally lose control over their actions.

    Any rational human is going to know that if you torture a little boy and break his bones then you are going to go to jail and most likely prison.

    It starts out as just getting high and having a good time, then your body gets used to the drugs and it takes more drugs to get the same high, then ya end up trying more powerful drugs and different combinations of drugs and before you know it, you go too far and find yourself running naked down the street attacking people with a butcher knife, or like a few days ago when a man walked into a Metro PCS and started screaming then attacked a police officer then died after being restrained. Or you might be a really unlucky bastard and wake up in jail and discover that you beat a little boy to death while you were high.

    We are losing the war on drugs and something has to change. I am just not sure what we can do that we are already not doing.

    Maybe drug offenders should be treated sorta like sex offenders, perhaps anyone convicted of any drug offence can have their place of residence randomly searched for a period of 10 years after the conviction.

        So you think Isauro Aguirre woke up that morning and decided “Hmm today I am gonna beat that boy to death and be facing the death penalty”? Did he even try to run away or did he just sit there on the couch waiting for the cops to show up?

            we don’t know how many “days” this took- and if these people are so evil, why did they bother to call the police? A rational person would know they are going to jail if they call the cops.

            Isauro Aguirre’s family was at the courthouse protesting, claiming he is innocent – of course he is not innocent- but do you see the point? they are just as stunned as if it was YOUR relative accused of this crime, YOU wouldn’t believe it either would you?

            Drugs can change a person from a good person into a monster.

            Drugs and alcohol kill many thousands of people every year and our prisons are filled with people who would not be there if drugs and alcohol did not exist. Now we can add 2 more people to that list.

            I am sure the owner of budweiser sleeps soundly at night, as does the drug dealer that sold Isauro Aguirre and Pearl Fernandez their drugs. Actually that dealer is probably very upset over all this, because he now has lost 2 customers.

            All this speculation over drugs… and what will be crazy is when we find that drugs had nothing to do with it… The boyfriend for whatever reason obviously did not like this kids and bullied him, and the mother well from her pictures looks like a little horny tramp who accidentally got pregnant so she just gave birth and kept them for a check!

            I completely agree with Marc. Sammy P. you’re definitely making excuses for them. They had obviously been abusing that child for a long time. The night in question I don’t think they meant to go so far as to to kill them because they call the police. Rage is a really powerful thing though. When their rage subsided they saw the results of their actions. It does not make it ok, they are horrible people for not only abusing but KILLING him, and someone should have spoken out a long time ago. Someone saw signs of abuse but kept their mouths. It’s a tragic situation.

          Do a little research before you make excuses. This has nothing to do with drugs. The boyfriend had a history of physically abusing other children. CPS had visited this family multiple times due to reports from the school. This is a case of a child falling through the cracks. Now he can be at peace.

            sorry for that re post….where did you hear that Isauro Aguirre had prior child abuse allegations? from what I hear they were both on Meth so drugs could play a part in this story, his story to the cops was that he beat Gabriel for being dirty and telling lies…I think this statement had a lot to do with things he was telling his Teacher at School, they somehow found out the Teacher was reporting all the things Gabriel was telling her about the Abuse to a Social worker and the Teacher was in fear of Pearl and Isauro! for good reason I think.

      Where did they say drugs? So basically Sammy P., you thought this would be a good place to protest ones rights based on your assumptions.

      I agree with V. Assumptions make an A** out of people for a reason.

      Do Drugs make you go Crazy YES but Guess what? So do PRESCRIPTION Drugs!

      This is about STOPPING Child Abuse NOT the War On Drugs that was no where listed.

      How does that help this Innocent Child? How does that STOP other children from being abused? How does that tell this Child’s Story?

      Everyone has an Opinion & that’s great but don’t redirect what is actually going on to an assumption.

      You ASSUMED that I am guessing because of the way the two looked & their tattoos. That’s NOT Cool.

      Bias may have had something to do with this child’s murder & your Bias Doesn’t help the given situation.

      STAND UP FOR THE CHILDREN WHO ARE INVOLVED IN CHILD ABUSE BY SPEAKING UP FOR THEM & STOPPING IT

      This is the most ignorant statement I’ve ever heard. What a ridiculous excuse to justify what these two monsters have done. This poor child had no defense or protection not even form his own mother drugs or no drugs!!Smh. And there isn’t such a term as “drug offender” nor are they on the same level as sex offenders. You’re a moron!

      • sammy P
        May 29, 2013 at 11:26 pm

        Lets wait and see what their defence is.

        I am placing my bets that he is going to say he was high as a kite and not in control of his actions and she will say she was too high to stop him. If she is lucky, she might be offered a plea deal to testify against him.

        Its very easy to blame them and call them “monsters” because we all feel so sorry for Gabriel and what he went through. But I sense that there is a type of evil here that only comes from drugs.

        I remember a case from 5 years ago where 2 males high on PCP kidnapped a young couple in their car at gunpoint and forced them to drive them into the mountains. While she drove the car the 2 men pulled the guys eyeballs out of his head and then threw him over a cliff, killing him. They then forced the girl to drive them around and then just let her go.

        To me, This story seems to have that type of evil thats only obtainable through being high, because a normal person would not find it fun to tie up a little boy and torture him and bash his head in and a normal person would understand there would be consequences to those actions, but a person who is very high might find that fun, and may be too high to understand the consequences.

        I don’t think they are monsters, I think they are no different than many other thousands of people who wake up in jail after a day of being high who say to themselves “oh my god what have I done???”

        Unfortunately, in this case, its much more severe than usual.

        I agree with everyone that says she should have not had any kids in that home- they all should have been removed, but I am not placing 100% blame on them for Gabriel’s death, not when people are shipping hundreds of pounds of coke, meth and heroin into the US from mexico with no cares about how it ruins lives here.

        I see 3 lives that have been destroyed here, not to mention families on both sides that will have to suffer now.

        I see this as another senseless tragedy caused by substance abuse, and instead of focusing my anger on 2 people, I would rather focus it on the big picture that’s destroying our nation and causing all these tragedies and money our state spends to fight the war on drugs.

        Drugs need to go, at whatever the cost, even if we have to give up some freedoms and allow police to search every friggen apartment and house in america, I would give up that freedom, so that kids like Gabriel would be saved.

        On a lighter note- thank god they removed the thumbs-up and thumbs-down thingies from this site :) My posts always seem to be controversial. But I try and look at things logically and without personal bias.

          Whaaaaat?!!? “I was too high” is not a defensive strategy. If you kill a child drugs or no, that still makes you a child killer. I don’t think “normal” people just wake up and say I’m gonna go do meth today…hope, I don’t beat a kid to death.

          This was not an isolated incident (the beating/abuse on Gabriel), according to reports made by his teacher, statements made by his grandparents and neighbours. These monsters, abused him for prolonged periods of time and continued to do so until they finally savagely murdered him.

          Focus on the problem with drugs in America if that’s what you want to do. And while you’re off in the land of the bunnies where child killers are just mis-managed, misunderstood touchy feely soft and cuddly addicts….I’ll be advocating capital punishment for two heartless, godless, spineless cold blooded child abusing child killers!

            May 30, 2013 at 5:30 am

            I never said it was a defence that will work. And you sound like an expert on how much abuse Gabriel suffered- was it every day? every week? Once every 6 months the kid had a bruise perhaps? Do you know kids that age get bruises accidently sometimes? Do you know how often someone calls DCFS for revenge or leverage in child custody cases? Did you know kids sometimes lie about abuse because they would rather live with a different relative who gives them more toys and lets them get their way more often? My parents had no problem beating me with a belt at that age when I was naughty and perhaps it worked because I haven’t been to prison yet.

            I understand your anger- the way this story is written it would appear Pearl Fernandez is a horrible, heartless mother who didn’t love her son at all and abused him daily, or perhaps anything POSITIVE about Pearl Fernandez was conveniently left out of the story to shape the opinions of people like you.

            Perhaps over the years she had a few boyfriends who were abusive toward Gabriel and maybe she dumped them right away after she discovered it.

            I am also outraged by the death of this boy, but I have learned not to judge based on what I read in the news because too many times I have been surprised by info that was left out later on down the road.

            12 people will decide their fate (unless a plea comes along) and those 12 people will have more information to determine guilt then we do right now. The media is not a judge and a jury.

First of all the details surrounding the torture and murder of this little boy have not been made available to the public. Second, your “solution” to a, as of yet to be determined, factor to this case is to spend more tax payer money, on something you admittedly said “we are losing”. Brilliance, pure ignorant brilliance.

    I can’t believe that this terrible tragedy was not prevented. Unfortunately there are people in this world that have no value of life. This precious child was put through things that no person shoulld be subjected to. Much less a 8 year old kid. The mom and douchebag boyfriend will get what they deserve while in jail. Even in prison most criminals have a concience and do not have much tolerance for scum bags that hurt or kill kids. Also-I think that the cops and social workers involved in this case should face criminal charge. I don’t know all of the facts but from what I have heard they should be charged with involuntary manslaughter and face some jail time do to their gross negligance. RIP little guy. You should be with your grandparents right now but unfortunately the system failed you!

      didn’t take into account about how his teacher stated that he was being beaten with a belt until he was bleeding. The writing was clearly on the wall and yet these agencies chose to look the other way. I hope they will be held accountable.

    • May 31, 2013 at 6:21 pm

      You’re the first one I have agreed with. Many people failed this child, and they should all be held accountable. Whether drugs had anything to do with it does not matter. A child was tortured to death. I do remember a story I wrote about a little girl named Tesslynn O’Cull. She was 4 and lived in Oregon. Her Mom and her Mom’s boyfriend were high on meth and tortured this precious child to death! They are both in prison. He’s on death row, which makes me angry that he’s allowed to even breathe. The Mom got life with no chance of parole. Meth is a horrible drug. But other people do the same things to kids without being on drugs. EVIL is the problem! I hope the courts find both of these EVIL people guilty and they get the maximum sentence allowed by law.

    Why are you defending the boyfriend? Is he a relative of yours or what???

    Yes Pearl the mother is a monster, for allowing her little boy to be abused and I’m sure she abused him, as well. It seems like most of the people on here agree that she was equally responsible for her sons death. But just because she is culpable, that doesn’t mean you let the other beast slide! The boyfriend was also involved and according to statistics most children that die child abuse related deaths die at the hands of a male partner, who’s involved with the child’s mother and is not the biological father.

    Why are you pleading the case for another child abuser? Child killer? This boy was an innocent, battered, burned and beaten little victim. He was humiliated, berated, probably neglected and probably never knew normalcy, love or have any kind of childhood.

    Why shouldn’t they both burn in hell??? I don’t see any innocent victims here other than the children!!!

All of you might be judging the situation as it is but I ask to demand further investigation. This little boy was suffering for years and this man has only been in his life for a short amount of time. This monster lady was the cause of little Gabriel’s nightmares and records clearly say it!!!!! Even her parents during the interview stated that Pearl would hurt Gabriel but not that they saw the man hurting him!!!!! Ask for her records please and you’ll see what big monster she is!!! Why don’t you ask her family members where are the other 2 kids out of five kids that she had and why??? Why were they taken away before she even met this so called monster man you all are aiming at??! Little Gabriel suffered even more since the moment he went into custody to this animal Pearl! Her family members clearly knew that she hated this little boy. Why doesn’t her family members talk about poor little Gabriel on how he was suffering more than all of you even know and his family members who he lived for years caused that little angel the worst psychological problems a little boy can have!!! I demand further investigation over this family’s background because this boy was in hands of bad people since he was born!!! All of you see the things that are only displayed in the media but not even ask about the little boy’s life since day 1!!

Did anybody even mention that the man was seen hurting the little boy rather than that monster lady that claims he supposedly did??

    How can you report it when someone is already involved? You pick up the phone & dial, you go down to the police station, you stop the social worker & tell them what you have seen & heard. The question should be, how could I have said nothing when I knew something was seriously wrong. Bless his heart, no child should ever have to live a life like that & this is proof that it is not always best to keep them with their family. We see this to many times, to many people think it will be taken care of or just go away. When it comes to child abuse, it is everybody’s business, wouldn’t you rather report this & find out you were wrong than not do a thing & find out, as in this case, that you were right?

      Look, I hold the b***h dog more responsible, this was her child. Bringing trash into her home. Put both the low life cowards in general population and let the other inmates take care of them. Also hold the grandparents, sisters, brothers and anyone else who knew of this abuse responsible!!
      Hey neighbors, you knew this was going on? Grab the kid take him in your home and call the police idiot! Hope you sleep good tonight! All of us has a responsibility to children as they cannot protect themselves from an adult. Step up to the plate and quit the Monday night quarterbacking. We all know DCS and CPS do not give a damn, they are under paid and hate the job.

        So many of these stories involve so called moms that are so desperate to have a man in their bed that they allow this to happen. That is worse then one inflicting the abuse. This piece of trash wanted a low life man so bad – lets give them to her. She and women like her should be locked up in the mens prison. Let these guys take care of them. Pelican Bay would be a good start.
        As far as the guy – he shouldn’t even make it to prison.

    The remaining siblings are going to need a tremendous amount of support and strength if they are going to have any type of productive future. GOD Forbid, but according to statistics, these children are likely to become abusive themselves. Or perhaps become victims in other aspects of their lives like the slow and painful suicide of addiction, co-dependency, depression, low self-esteem, etc..
    I pray for the entire family.

My wife was one of the nurses who worked on him at hospital and she couldn’t believe what was done to him. Very sad. I don’t know how you can do that to a little boy. I have an 8 year old currently and would never ever think of laying a hand on him. Post some pictures up of these losers. Hopefully you guys can take photos and the courthouse so we all can see these two POS.

      Got a file sitting here almost 2in thick that documents ALL the screw ups subsequent cover up by the imbeciles at the Lancaster DCFS office involved in my daughters case. The cover up goes all the way up to Alex Hernandez at Phil Brownings office. Guess who investigates DCFS screw ups? DCFS does.. & then they seal the records because the workers are protected by their union. The main offender at the Lancaster DCFS office is called Dave Hinson. Other employees at that office that need to be fired are John Willey, Kellie Pimienta, Vicki Alexander, Mary Jane (yes, really), Jessica Garrett, Paul Gaieta & Jessica Burnias.

          No they don’t! Their main focus is to keep the child with their biological parent. Look how well that worked out for this little boy. This state and county are screwed up. Some people shouldn’t have kids and when they do they shouldn’t be allowed to raise them.

            Yes DCFS tries to keep children with the birth parents if at all possible with services in place. But if the safety risks are too high the children are removed from the parents home. We dont know the specifics of this case or what exactly happened so it is not fair to judge DCFS or the police for not doing thier job.

She did this on her days off and she was fired for harassment of the perps!! The County was scared of lawsuits even when she had pictures of the dad and child leaving the motel room.

    The first time I saw little Gabriel, It was at my place of work ,where I am a contract security officer for the sheriffs department .at 16:40 hours his mother walked in practically wearing nothing. I noticed 4 children ,among them I noticed Gabriel stood out of them with burn marks and bruises even covering the back of his head which was also swollen from the left side of his face and having a black eye. as his mother left the building with him , he stayed looking at me with a look of fear and helplesness I was.in shock and it took me a minute to even process what I just witnessed. I am not a child protective services worker or a contract county worker but I am a parent and Humane to realize this child was being tortured, beaten to the greatest extent and who knows what else.Therfore on April 26 friday at 16:50 (4:50) I personally called Child protective services there was no answer I called 911 dispatch said “it does not sound like an emergency call to me ,you have to call the regular number” I said okay ,so I called 2722400 where I was transferred to a Female deputy ,asked whats wrong ,I explained to her that I work at the GAIN office and that I noticed Gabriel was being bruised up even having a misshaped head from such beatings ,that they needed to go check that appartment amd get that boy away and some medical treatment she said theyll send deputies asap ,I then explained to my family I may have saved a boys life today ,I wonder if those deputies even went to see Gabriel and even see if the deputies had any common sence to notice he needed help and in the end to find out he passed away from his head injuries from his parents

I just wish there was a way that I can myself give them what they truly deserve. This cheap looking hooker shouldn’t be called a mom and her so called boyfriend is a pos for abusing a small child. I hope they both rot in jail. Little Gabriel…may you finally rip. These two animals can no longer hurt you.

    While everyone has the perfect hind-sight point of view, let’s not forget that it is not enough to make an anonymous call to DCFS and give these inhuman ‘parents’ enough time and warning to clean things up for the Social Worker when they come. Don’t be a sneaky little ‘RAT’. Have enough courage to be there when the workers come and tell them exactly what you saw in front of the ‘parent’. Too many times people use DCFS or the sheriff to do their dirty work because they don’t like their neighbors. That’s the boy crying wolf and it exhausts resources. If you want to be a hero, be an effin hero. Instead of complaining about the system’s failures, remember that it is YOUR system. You voted for this mess, now clean it up!

      There are phone numbers for making anonymous reports for a reason. A person who owns their house has to keep living there and as uncomfortable as it already is living next door to people you know are abusing the law, why is it necessary to make yourself a target? You seem like a big talker. If this kid has bruises all over him like everyone has reported, police and dcfs should have seen them too. They chose not to act on the reports of teachers, neighbors, and who knows who else. If the cops are not going to act on anonymous calls, they should ANNOUNCE TO THE WORLD that they do not take anonymous calls seriously.

        If you are afraid of being made a target, what point is there trying to be a hero after the fact? I don’t consider myself to be a big talker. I believe actions speak louder than words. You sound like one of those guilty of making the calls in the dark out of spite, not concern. Your goal does not seem to be justice, it seems that you want someone else to make a stand for you so that you can jump on a bandwagon later.

          Not at all Rome. Not the least bit interested in the bandwagon. When I see something I report it. If I choose not to go outside in the middle of the night when the police come (if), and become a target, that’s my choice. That shouldn’t make a difference of whether the cops see the underage drinking, pissing off the roof, smoking bongs, bonfires in the middle of the neighborhood, car loads of graffiti boys, tanks and balloons of noz. However it does make a difference whether my house is paintballed after the cops leave. Just sayin.

    If there’s desire of justice being served to little Gabriel (may He rest in Peace), there’s certainly justice not being served. This little innocent child had suffered so much and the guilty ones are certainly not being punished. If you knew the records of both these individuals, you would know the difference between them and their difference is BIG. This lady is a monster who has her records and only she has been found with bad records. Gabriel needs to be served justice!! So all of you who are demanding justice by aiming against that man instead should demand for further investigation because Gabriel is certainly not being served justice!!

        They are aware of what DCFS is doing I have spoken at 2 hearings in front of ALL of the Board Members yet they allow this because no one shows to the Public Hearings WE NEED TO HAVE THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS INDEXED WITH FAILURE TO PROTECT CHILDREN- A COUNT FOR EVERY CHILD IN THEIR CARE!::::

        In respect to: HOW DOES A CSW ENTER A PRIVATE HOME TO INVESTIGATE ALLEGATIONS OF ABUSE OR NEGLECT?
        ITEM (A) CONSENT: CSW MUST DISCLOSE THE ABILITY TO DENY ENTRY AND HAVE WITNESSES PRESENT OR AN ATTORNEY, MOST CITIZENS’ DO KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT, HOWEVER LACK INTENT KNOWLEDGE TO COMPLICATED ADMINSTRATIVE LAW AND PROCEDURES, CONCERNING THEIR RIGHTS WHEN FACED WITH A POSSIBLE INVESTIGATION.
        ITEM (B) EXIGENT CIRCUMSTANCES: ADDITION- LAW ENFORCEMENT MUST ACOMPANY CSW
        ADDRESSING: A CSW MUST NEVER COERCE, THREATEN OR FORCE CONSENT TO ENTER THE HOME, THIS APPLIES TO THE CONSENT ISSUES. ALL TOO OFTEN CSW ABUSE POWER AND USE THIS TACTIC ALTHOUGH COUNTY PROCEDURE SPECIFIES THIS IS AN ETHICAL VIOLATION. IF EVIDENCE OF THIS IS FOUND IN ANY CASE- THE CSW MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE, AND TERMINATED.
        ADDRESSING: CONSENT BY MINORS, INCLUDING TEENS- THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE WHAT SO EVER, UNLESS LAW ENFORCEMENT IS PRESENT. IF DCFS WARRANTS THE ABILITY TO MAKE REMOVALS SHOULD BE SUBJECTED TO RECORDING, FOR FACTUAL EVIDENCE PURPOSES. INSTEAD OF SUPPLYING CSW WITH EXPENSIVE IPHONES, LOOK INTO ALLOTTED RECORDING DEVICES AS SUCH TO LAW ENFORCEMNT.
        ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTLESS REMOVAL’S WITHOUT EXIGENT CIRCUMSTANCES AND PROVIDE RECORDING DEVICES AS OFFICERS OF THE LAW MUST CARRY- TO SS WORKERS WHO ARE CONDUCTING INTERVIEWS FOR ARA’S TO LISTEN TO AFTER EACH SHIFT, ARA TO FORM REPORT BY THE RECORDING -IF CSW IS NOT STATE LICENSED THROUGH THE BBS CA, LETS START GETTING SOMEONE HELD ACCOUNTABLE WHEN A CSW HAS STEPPED OUT OF LINE, EXAGGERATES CIRCUMSTANCES, LIED, COMMITTED PERJURY OR FRAUD.
        THERE IS A GROWING MIS-USE OF POWER THROUGH DISGRUNTLED EMPLOYEES, WHEN SERVING THE PUBLIC, ETHIC IS TO SERVE NO MATTER THE SITUATION; A PERSONAL AFFLICTION IS TO NOT AFFECT THE BETTER JUDGEMENT OF THE REAL ISSUE.
        SOCIAL WORKERS NEED BETTER TRAINING ON “REAL REPORTING” VS CUSTODY DISPUTE REPORTS.
        LOS ANGELES COUNTY SHALL NOT ENTER INTO THE COUNTY OF THE RESIDENCE OF A PARENT IN QUESTION OUTSIDE OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY; IT SHOULD BE IMMEDIATELY REFFERED TO THE PROPER COUNTY, SO THAT CAPTA GUIDELINES ARE FOLLOWED TO REASONABLE SERVICE OFFERS. ASKING A PARENT WHO RESIDES IN A DIFFERENT COUNTY THAN LOS ANGELES TO ATTEND RECCOMENDED ACTIVITIES ORDERED ACTIVITES TO A VICINITY OF NO MORE THAN 35 MILES FROM THEIR RESIDENCE IS NOT A REASONABLE REQUEST, AS MOST SUFFER LOSS OF INCOME TO BEGIN WITH MEETING THESE REQUIREMENTS, AND LOSE A DETRIMENTAL AMOUNT OF RESOURCES TO TRAVEL AT LENGTH TO APPEASE DCFS LOS ANGELES COUNTY.

        DCFS Los Angeles is also required to provide reasonable service offer, when again this is also negligent on the County’s behalf, after exigent public outreach through social media, personal meetings held in confidentiality, and other various methods such as Newspaper/Website updated news, so that these disclosing parties may not suffer further scrutiny at the hands of Los Angeles County, as I have made myself an example of most parents who must comply to services have only been offered services at an unreasonable-unreachable-unaffordable parameter, testing venues sometimes over 100 miles from the residence of said participant. This was a test of the County’s ability to follow procedure, act in a civil servant and honest manner. This County must pay attention to the wrongs, and fix it to right, or no longer serve as guide and head of this Agency- Department of Children and Family Service, and the Public request that it is relinquished to a non-profit, in which has been proven to be effective for the futures and lives of abused and neglected children in the County of Los Angeles, at the public’s vote as opposed to the Board of Supervisors who have been and are currently failing to gain control of an already out of control situation.
        These are the lives of innocent children at stake, and the County of Los Angeles is running under codes of Ethics that are not currently being met. Most CSW are not meeting the requirements to be participating in the Removal Process. This is a huge growing epidemic that needs to be put to an end-if not, the PUBLIC WILL SEEK THE CAPTA TO PRIVATE SECTOR’S BECAUSE THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES IS NEGLIGENT in the handling of Children and Families/Foster Children’s Best Interest, and the best interest of children of various sorts. If Los Angeles County does not retain control of malicious action of individuals, how are children assured to have the right to remain with caring, loving parents, as opposed to those who take revenue for their presence? This is not just a continuous Constitutional Violation but yet a Human Violation in many areas of the LAW.
        If there is not an Entire revamp of this Department of Children and Family Services Los Angeles County- it will be requested by public, and various non-profit entities that it is to be DISSBANNED, and each employee suffer AN INDEXING OF FAILURE TO PROTECT BE PROVIDED FOR SUCH INDIVIDUALS TO THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE- INCLUDING THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS, so that they may not contain this amount of power of and over children, and families… and possibly risk DETAINMENT of their children for the same.

    DCSF has had 17 administrators in the past 25 years which means no one did their job. You cant be in an entity this big and expect things to get fixed in a short amount of time. These administrators were only on the job a lil over a year, which means that they couldn’t solve ANY problem in such a short time.

I know KARMA WIll come to them in a way none of us could ever make them feel! Instead of anger setting in we should all come together and find a way for justice to prevail in Gabriel’s behalf. Not only for Gabriel, but for the many children that are being abused every day, and it being hidden, or not legally intervened by the legal system! It really appalls me is how DPSS and/or The Sheriff’s Dept. didn’t step in before Gabriel was murdered!

    This is very sad indeed. My prayers are with the boy and his siblings.

    Systems can not cure societal ailments. Systems are attempting to put out a preexisting raging forest fire with a bucket of water. These acts are not assumed, and it would be difficult for any person to assess that another would be capable of such things. No amount investigation/intervention/training is going to identify/weed out all of the sick, immoral people in our current world.

    In the one hour a month/year that the noted various systems probably had contact with this family, it would seem likely that it would be very easy to hide certain things. Particularly if a family is well versed in being investigated and knows what to say/do.

    Ironically, there are so many people on here complaining that CPS intruded in their lives at one time or another, and asked them to drug test, attend parenting, etc. More intense investigation and intervention is what is being called for, yet just about every person I know complains when their rights are invaded in any manner.

      I think you’re right to some degree. But in Gabriel’s case, there was more then enough evidence, everytime the social worker or sheriffs saw him to know, without a doubt, he wasn’t being treated right.

    we cant loose our humanity and become the same monsters and avenge. because we be no better then the mom and bf.Are Almighty Lord Father will take action in his own hands in time,

Gabriel suffered and the Lord didn’t do nothing to help him better yet ur lord is jus as bad as the DCFS that left him there in the home of.those monstes ur lord is as bad as the sheriff’s that went to their house and saw that nothing was wrong with Gabriel! Yes I would loved them exposed cuz the Lord.ain’t gonna.give us the justice that Gabriel deserves

        What you are saying makes absolutely no sense. God is not responsible for peoples actions. When those two get to hell and you join them, then you can ask them if Gabriel pleaded to God for it to stop. You sound so ridiculos. If you don’t know God how can you comment on His actions?.

        The boy’s name is Gabriel, which means GOD’S messenger. By the responses on this page, this young man, through his suffering, raised a tremendous amount of awareness to the evils that prevail in this world and the inadequacy of our agencies to prevent them. He may just as well inadvertently prevented the abuse of thousands, perhaps millions of children for generations to come. Sort of how the parents of Megan Kanka used their tragedy to establish Megan’s law or how John Walsh became a victim’s rights advocate and started America’s Most Wanted after the tragedy that befell his son, Adam. THAT’S GOD in action! The devil, who runs things in this world (Rev. 12:12) is a liar and a murderer since it was created.

      I wish these monsters where going to be housed in general population in the prison system so they could be exposed for what they are and get dealt with as child abusers do and experience the life being beaten out of them with no one there to help as this sweet innocent child did. Once again Lil Gabriel will be let down by the system, because when these sorry gutter rats get to prison they will be housed with all the other child abusers/child molesters/rapist. kept safely away from inmates who would see that they suffer for what they did to a CHILD. So as Gabriel’s life was cut short, these two gutter rats will adapt to life in prison and learn to make the best of it.They will make friends with the other gutter rats there and be able to make jailhouse alcohol and shoot the [remove].They will still live and every now and again find a reason to laugh and smile. Yes the good Lord will pass judgment in time, but remember he is very forgiving, and monsters like this don’t deserve the chance to ask for forgiveness.
      they should be dealt with while they are still in sin so they could burn in hell as they so do deserve. That is justice, ever lasting eternity burning for what they did…..

    DCFS is a damn joke my baby sis was removed from our household not because of abuse but because of an altrication between my dad and former step mom (mother of my sis). My dad is A wonderful dad and the mother she’s the screwed up one but dcfs was on her moms side knowing she was on drugs. Only recently now that the mother is in jail does dcfs see that my dad isn’t to blame he just wants his baby back. DCFS needs to focus on the real cases like these instead of petty cases like my fathers there are children really being hurt out there and they are the kids that need to be removed from the households they are in what A shame! They were quick to remove my sis and she was in no way shape or form being abused they broke my heart that day they tore a family aoart and yet they did nothing for that innocent boy who was the real victim..ugh this just frustrates me As a mother to be!!

WHAT KIND OF  IS THAT? WHY WOULD THEY WANT TO REUNITE THEM WITH SOMEONE WHO DIDNT WANT THEM!!! THERE SO CORRUPTED!

    May 25, 2013 at 7:36 pm

    I JUST HOPE DCFS DIDN’T HAVE AN OPEN CASE ON HIS PARENTS! IF THEY DID, THEY FAILED TO DO THERE JOB AN SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTED FOR HIS DEATH! I HAVE A CASE RIGHT NOW WERE DCFS SHOWS UP MY HOUSE TWICE A MONTH! NOT BECAUSE OF ABUSE, MY 16 YEAR OLD ACTING OUT TRYING TO BE AN ADULT!!! ANYWAYS WHEN DCFS SHOWS UP, THEY MAKE ME FEEL LIKE IM NOT DOING MY JOB AS A PARENT!! ALWAYS ASKING MY KIDS IF I TOUCHED THEM, IF I YELD AT THEM, DO I FEED THEM! THEY ACTUALLY CHECK MY ENTIRE HOUSE TO BE SURE EVERYTHING IS IN PLACE! DCFS CAN ONLY DO SO MUCH!! BUT LIKE I SAID, IF THEY DIDN’T HAVE A CASE OPEN ON THE PARENTS WHY IS EVERYONE “TRIPPING ABOUT DCFS IF NO ONE LIKE THE NEIGHBORS REPORTED IT” I BET YOU GUYS MOST OF YOU KNOW OFF PEOPLE THAT ABUSE THERE KIDS AN DON’T SPEAK UP CUSS SOMETIMES WE FEEL IT’S NONE OF OUR BUSINESS OR WE JUST DON’T WANT PROBLEMS!!! ABUSE = HITTING WITH HANDS OR OBJECTS, MENTAL ABUSE WERE YOU TELL YOUR KIDS PROFANITY OR YELLING AT HIM TELLING HIM/HER THERE WORTHLESS, NOT FEEDING THEM RIGHT!! NOT PROVIDING THEM WITH CLEAN CLOTHING! SO THERES LOTS AWAYS KIDS ARE BEING ABUSED AN WE NEED TO SPEAK UP!! SO NEXT TIME YOU SEE A CHILD GETTING SPANKED AT WALMART OR TOLD TO SHUT THE F UP! CALL THE POLICE AN LET THEM TAKE ACTION!!! 

      Of course the neighbors weren’t gonna report anything, in the ghetto there is no neighborhood watch or concerned citizens. The Majority of people living in Gabriel’s building are either selling drugs or using them not worried about y this child is always bruised up. But focused on staying out of the radar of the cops. There is not an open case, just referral’s. But that poor excuse of a mother probably told Gabriel what to say to the workers so they wouldn’t think to much of the bruises. Its still no excuse because they should have seen past it, they r supposed to be educated professional’s and be able to detect and see past all the BS and manipulation. SO YES SHAME ON THEM FOR NOT DOING THERE JOB RIGHT……….

Remember those two little boys who died because the foster mom left them in the hot car. Do some research people we have lost many kids in this area due to their lack of judgment. What a joke.

    I’m so sadden by the news. I’m a mother of three beautiful girls and NEVER in my life could or would allow a man to put hands on them. I feel that this child is in a much safer place way to early!! This child would be with us today if that SOB DCFS worker did her/his job. I blame the worker for pretending not to see what was going on at home… I would never wish bad upon anyone, but the worker deserves to rott in prison. The state of California needs to cut Cal-works. We are allowing young mothers to keep having children under our tax dollars, so they will keep having kids that are unwanted and hated because they become a hindrance to the “mom”. I see this everyday I work in the social service field. It hurts me to see kids as a “welfare check” so the parents could go use it on drugs or things other than the children. Let’s come.together for the sake of the unheard children. When you see or suspect something please do something!!

        I agree. family members , friends, neighbors come on have the balls to stand up for these kids, if their own parents are causing then harm someone has to speak up for them. I am definitely one to report this kind of stuff, and not one to just turn my head and pretend it is not happening. even if you think it’s not serious enough, or that someone is already looking into it, just keep on it .I don’t just look out for my own kids, I keep my eyes peeled for every kid out there. This needs to stop, and if we all work together to report it and stay on top of it , we can make a difference.

Someone needs to charge her with mental and emotional abuse of children and adults alike!!!!!! If DCFS actually did their jobs instead of being on a power trip, this little boy would still be alive……

    This poor child. DCFS hires workers who have no children. I feel in order to work for them you should be required to have children. That way when you remove a child from a loving home and yet leave a child in an abusive one, you could relate to how extremely devastating your actions are going to be. I had a case against me for failure to protect even though I had sought out help all on my own. I put myself in counseling,got on medication, and enrolled myself in parenting classes because I was allowing my ex to abuse me in front of my children and I couldn’t figure out why. They still took my child from me. One of my workers who came to my home told me she wasn’t going to be my worker anymore because of one of her cases she repeatedly reported for obvious abuse, she could get no help in removing the children from the home. DCFS out here is all screwed up, serious attention needs to be paid to the higher ups in this department. This should have never happened to this child God rest his soul. My heart hurts for the people who DID try to do something and couldn’t get the help from proper authorities they needed.

    This story breaks my heart. I, as well as all of us who still human, wish that there was something we could have done to prevent such a travesty. Being a parent and a man, I would like to think that people have an instinct to protect the young and defenseless like even the animals do. Unfortunately, we live in a world influenced by evil forces who despise humanity. Although we have been conditioned to trust that agencies like DCFS protect our children, the reality is that they fail time and time again. After all, they are only human.
    Personally, I believe in the Almighty and Just GOD. I believe that, although the only perceivable protection we have in this dark and unholy world, I cannot put my faith in this system or its agencies. As a follower of Jesus, I have been taught to pray for the establishment of GOD’S kingdom. For HIS Will to be Done on Earth, as it IS in heaven. Some without faith may think that it is too late for victims like this little boy. But I ask: How can it be too late for the Controller of time itself?
    If you do not share my beliefs, please do not be offended. I respect your right to your own beliefs. I am only preaching to those who already believe.
    Those of us who confess Jesus as our Lord and Savior, I implore you to pray incessantly for the Holy Kingdom to come. Pray for the Sanctification of The Most Holy NAME. Pray that HE deliver us from the evil that is so prevalent in these last days.
    This worldly kingdom belongs to the enemy. We must endure and have faith that “HE Will Wipe away every tear from our eyes”, that there “shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying.” There shall be no more pain, for the former things will have passed away.
    PRAY WITHOUT FEAR FOR GOD’S GREAT DAY!
    Blessings to all and Peace be unto you.

    Mandatory child abuse awareness in k-12 for students!
    I hope those two monsters are treated the same way by the justice system & they never see the light of day.
    That little Boy did not deserve to be treated like that- in heaven he’s loved. I how the siblings never see those monsters again!

    I pray over the mother and the stepfather. For all of you that trust in The Lord… He does have little Gabriel in paradise, where he will smile and be eternally happy. This world is evil and the devil has a lot of people blind folded. The Lord waited for Gabriel. I have 2 boys of my own, one very close in age to Gabriel and although I cried when I read the comment of God picking up another flower for His garden, I am relieved to know Gabriel knows true love now. His “mother” will come to her senses and the step “father” will too. Justice will be served, maybe not on earth. The devil is the prince of the world, but God is in control and they will have to face Him one day. Pray! Pray! Pray for the siblings to be healed, that they may find peace. Pray over your children, bind all evil away from them! In Jesus mighty name.

    This poor little boy is another example of how things could have turned out for the 2 kids Ingrid Brewer adopted. Thank God they escaped.
    There needs to be community outrage over these situations or things will not change at Social Services (DCFS).
    When I go to a doctor office I am asked if anyone is taking advantage of me financially, or if anyone is physically abusing me. We need to do that more with kids and make sure they know it is confidential and will be handled.

      May 25, 2013 at 12:02 am

      You are completely right! There needs to be community outrage. We need to come together in some way and force change. This little boy was tortured and murdered by the hands of the people who he thought were supposed to love and nurture him. He was ignored by those who saw his pain and choose to keep quiet. It saddens me to know that DCFS was informed, authorities were called to his home, people who are supposedly trained and paid to identify neglect and abuse, could have saved him if they just did their job. I know there are many cases very similar to this and it is hard to think there might be a another child experiencing this same abuse right now and we won’t know too help her/him till it’s too late. If there is something we can do, or I can do to help bring awareness please share. I hope that these two monsters pay dearly for what they did to this young child.

        May 25, 2013 at 5:20 am

        I agree the DCFS has some explaining to do! My daughter filed a restraining order against the father of her children, he got mad and called DCFS and we had them up our butts for 2 years even though on the first visit the Man said “I see this was just in retaliation, we still have to do our job” well, he came once a month talked to the kids and checked out our home….at the end of the case my daughter got full custody and the father went to jail (for DV and Child endangerment) WHY in the world didn’t this child get someone like the Social worker that was assigned to my daughter? maybe if he did he would be alive and in a home where someone CARED about him and would let him continue his life…..this saddens me to the core. I do find comfort in the fact that he is with his Heavenly Father and free from pain and torture….R~I~P little one!

          Funny reading this… the same thing happened to me. Father was mad over a restraining order I placed and made a bogus call to DCFS. When the case worker came over she said the same thing that she still had to do her job. HOWEVER…..I was harrassed weekly for months with home visits, drug tests, they wanted me to take parenting classes, they even visited my older girls at school. I was infuriated to the max I finally told the father if he didn’t call DCFS and tell them the truth he would have hell to pay. EVEN AFTER he made several attempts to contact the case workers and her sup whom she always said had the final say to retract his statement and tell them he did it out of anger they still didn’t want to drop the case. Instead they threatenhim jail time and blah blah almost like they didn’t want to have to conclude it was bogus after all. All those tax $ wasted on me when this poor boy was in need of protection. That case worker would have to be deaf , dumb and blind to not know that poor boy was in harms way and pull him from the home. Just look at the mother alone. She looks like a prostatute. So pathetic this happened!!

            Yeah that is how we felt but we had nothing to hide and even though they told us when the visit would be, we did not change a thing…we lived like we always do..had food in the fridge and on the shelves, kids were clean and playing as normal and we did not care that the Man took them outside one by one to talk to them, then us….but HE still said he had to work the case then a year later when he said it would close he put another worker on it and said that she had to see all of us to make sure HE did his Job and wrote the correct information in his reports….so it was another year with her! it was a shame that all their time was wasted on us since they never saw any abuse or neglect while other serious cases could have been seen and dealt with…system is screwed up!!!

        This mother was popping babies left and right to collect welfare to sustain her drug-fueled life!! Unfortunately, this is all too common here in the US. The children become victims from some of these families. It was obvious that these two individuals were so high on drugs while they were throwing the boy against the wall like he was a rag doll.

      I agree with your comments and also think the local DCFS staff needs to be investigated to get to the bottom of how this was allowed to happen.

      Comments below seem to indicate that all the mandatory reporters of child abuse where doing what they are supposed to do, reporting suspected abuse, yet this child ended up being murdered by someone in his home.

      Tragic and answers are needed on how this was allowed to happen. I hope the AVTimes follows up on the investigation of this tragic death.

        There’s only so much a person from the outside can do. At first, I was appalled when I heard that so many people knew this was going on and assumed that they did nothing. Then the rest of the story came out, and now I get why this poor child wasn’t saved.
        Years ago, my family had custody of one of my cousin’s kids (14 year old). He had court ordered therapy, and we did a lot for him. In the end, a family member walked in on this kid molesting another young cousin.
        Long story short, the social worker did nothing because she “really didn’t want to do more paperwork” and didn’t want to look incompetant, the therapist ignored it, because she felt that her observations showed he wasn’t capable of doing that, and the police can’t arrest him if nobody is willing to press charges.
        The little punk already knew how to lie and manipulate people, especially women, so there were brick walls everywhete we turned. We naturally kicked him out of the house, and eventually that whole side of the family turned on us for doing so, believing his lies instead of us.
        So at what point does Social Services do their jobs correctly and in a timely manner? When does personal responsibility and assertiveness come into play? it’s frustrating that the blame gets passed around, and nothing ever gets done.

Lord this Lil innocent child didn’t deserve this life y did u put him on earth wit his scum bag of a mom that was good for nothing the only thing that Piece of crap was probably good for was laying on her back and opening her legs! Then to top it off I know her mom was taking care of he 2 older ones and Gabriel was being taking care of by pearls uncle Micheal and he treated him like his own gave him everything he wanted and loved him unconditionally y did Pearl take her kids frm the people that loved them the most wat was.the reason for her to beat them and treat them like crap she deserves everything she gets I hope some one beats her till she is non responsive breaks her ribs and fractures her scull beat her till she is black and blue throw acid on the b!t¢h she deserves that and way more

DCFS does.. & then they seal the records because the workers are protected by their union. The main offender at the Lancaster DCFS office is called Dave Hinson.

        Yes and I don’t doubt that Pearl made threats to the kids or towards her parents especially her mother cuz ever since she was young she would threat and manipulate her mom and take advantage of her mom as well. She has been no good since I’ve met her. The bastard that did this I feel sorry for him when he gets to jail and he deserves everything that’s coming to him as for the sorry excuse for a mother she should b charged with murder or accessory to murder cuz the b!t¢h was there and didn’t even protect him. Y didn’t she leave that a$$hole hmmm maybe cuz she finally found someone that would take turns beating him as if she wasn’t enough already her to she is gonna get it and she is gonna get it good!

    What could this little boy possibly have done to deserve this… how are people capable of such violence? If you don’t have the patience, the coping skills, the knowledge to raise a child.. then my god, don’t keep having children. These disgusting pieces of garbage beat their child nearly to death, then panicked when they realized that perhaps they had taken it too far, and called paramedics to come to the rescue. Well you idiots, look what you’ve done. I bet you felt REAL TOUGH beating up an EIGHT YEAR OLD BOY. Now you will never get to see him again. I agree with the person who said that the parents deserve to have done to them what they did to their kid. They deserve to be beaten like he was. They deserve to be burnt like he was. They deserve to have their ribs broken like his were. They deseve to feel the PAIN that he went through.

    Thank goodness that this boy was finally rescued from a life of violence and despair and is safe in the hands of his doctors and nurses. It is just a shame that this violence went on for so long, and he was only saved after it had gone way too far.

    Many of you have contacted us for an update regarding the condition of the 8-year-old boy. About 8:15 this morning (Friday), we contacted Sgt. Brian Hudson of the Sheriff’s Special Victims Bureau for an update. According to an update he received late last night, the boy is still alive, Hudson said. If the boy’s condition changes, we will be sure to update this story. Until then, please understand that we must remove any comments to the contrary for posting false information.

      Unfortunately, we just confirmed with the County Coroner’s Office that the 8-year-old boy has passed away. The Coroner’s Office was notified only minutes ago, so they are still investigating. We will have more information regarding his time of death and what charges the couple will now face, as soon as it becomes available.

    Why would any woman let her baby boy take this abuse? When boyfriends often come into a relationship there can only be one rooster in a home, they then go after the sons. Sick!! This poor kid probably has so much mental abuse he will never be normal. Mother needs to be incarcerated!!

    So many people are more concerned about not getting into the “neighbors” business than they are about a childs welfare. This story makes me sick. I would have probably got beat up by that mom, but someone WOULD have helped that child if he lived in my neighborhood.
    I hope this little boy lives and that he can get the help he needs. The other kids have got to be suffering major trama, even if they were not tortured like he was.
    What the Hell is wrong with those people? Are they druggies?

    I am utterly disgusted! First by this whole darn story..the “eating cat poop” statement really has me dry heaving..BUT for social workers to be involved and look the other way, when it was OBVIOUSLY bad is foul! I have had my children removed years ago, not for neglect, abuse, etc…I did have a drug problem but all workers said i was still a great parent just needed to leave the dope. I am a success story of DCFS. However, within past three years, a few people I know that are fantastic parents..to say the least; have had their children removed for NOTHING!! Thats right, NOTHING! A bunch of quick talk and threats!But these disturbed morons are allowed to abuse and repeat? Instead of just talking, we ALL need to take a stand against these monster social workers..or their system! I am truly beside myself!! Prayers to the boy in critical condition..

    My understanding from several teachers where this boy attended school is he did die from his injuries. I pray for his siblings and hopeful they will be welcomed into a loving foster-to-adopt home. I hope there will be an investigation of WHY the system failed this child. Apparently the teachers at his school reported suspicion of abuse MANY times!!!

      May 23, 2013 at 10:25 pm

      He has not died he is on life support please everyone pray that he makes it thru this poor Gabriel didn’t deserve this actually no kid deserves that kind of treatment the mother was piece of crap and always treated him like crap she even made him eat the cats poop frm the litter box she and her piece of crap boyfriend deserve everything they get in jail or maybe they will b smart and kill themselves before someone handles them in jail to my knowledge even her parents knew of the abuse and never did nothing about it…im so disgusted

        I sure hope you are right Mimi, that he’s still alive! He deserves to have a 2nd chance at a better life. His teachers were told by authorities he passed away. I am holding out hope! Are you a friend of the family then & have 1st hand knowledge of his condition? I am praying for him!

      If teachers knew…and other adults knew things like he was being forced to eat cat feces and he was mistreated, did these adults not report it?
      If his mom and grandparents did nothing did everyone else just stand by and do nothing?
      Such a terrible thing I hope he recovers and is kept safe.

        That’s wat im saying I kno once I had asked for pearls address to go handle her my way and call children services on her but no one wanted to give it to me. Its jus so sad to kno that it had to come to this point for people to notice I jus really hope he does make it and they find him and his siblings a home where they can stay and live together cuz they have already been thru to much and if they would separate them they would b only causing more trauma to them cuz as for now all they have for now is eachother

        May 24, 2013 at 3:39 pm

        The teacher did report the abuse at least 3 times to the authorities,and nothing was done. She is completely heartbroken. He was not in school for the last 12 days and was told they had moved out of state. She had hoped the grandmother had him…….

Intervene, take notes and call again and again until someone listens! I am just broken hearted over this. While our children lay sound asleep in our home last night, this baby was being tortured. My heart aches for this precious child.

        May 23, 2013 at 10:11 pm

        That’s why I said say it to anyone and everyone. Get anyone and everyone involved so someone HAS to act even if it’s due to pure pressure because it’s being reported at every level to anyone in any type of elected or taxpayer funded official.

    That sorry excuse of a mother should be charged with attempted murder too, because she is just as guilty allowing anyone to abuse her child. I would be dead or sitting in jail, because no way on God’s green earth would be have gotten away with this. With that being said, my prayers are with this young boy and siblings and I hope they get all of the help they need, and they will need a lot to heal the emotional and mental wounds as well as the physical.

      May 23, 2013 at 10:31 pm

      I think so as well. Since the very first time the boyfriend laid hands on him she should have jumped in and made him beat her instead then left his sorry no good for nothing butt!! How can u just sit back and watch ur kid get beat B!T¢H€S like that should get attempted murder or at least acessory to murder

    I just don’t understand DCFS? They let bad parents and foster parents slide all the time, even when child abuse is so obvious. They don’t take any action at all! But when it comes to great parents and foster parents, they are always on their case. What is wrong with you workers?!?! I have witnessed, first hand, how they conduct their business. I don’t get it and I think I never will. It just doesn’t make any logical sense, period.
    As for those piece of crap “so-called” mother and her boyfriend, I hope the other county inmates become fully aware of these monsters and unleash hell upon them, but that’s if they don’t get PC’d in there first.

    He did go to school (although he was absent a lot), and his teacher reported to DCFS more than once. His bruises and other injuries were obvious. The doctor must have also known – he’s another mandated reporter. Something is wrong with DCFS. Our school is heartbroken.

      i dont understand how dcfs can take away kids for the parents for getting a second oppinion like was in the news a while ago but at the same time they can have all the reports and everything but yet not take the kids away DCFS needs to get their head out of there ass and do the right thing for once in there life

    I’ve seen this type of thing happen one to many times. Once to myself as a teenager. Social workers walk around with blindfolds on. They do the bare minimum, and don’t want to get involved in anything more. It’s a sad world we live in when children are pushed to the side, and abused like it’s ok.

      That’s what we get for trusting a bureaucracy to see that children are not harmed. It takes caring adults.

    This has nothing to do with legality it has to do with THE ABUSE AND MURDER OF A LITTLE BOY….how many legal WHITE OR BLACK ASSES have killed their kids out here and not one person said “if they are legal we will never know” your comment was racist and stupid!

    Well said Tori.

    A little boy is brutally beaten and abused over and over, and finally is beaten to death. Sick, tragic and heartbreaking.

    Ace, even for you, I found your comment highly inappropriate. Don’t use the murder of a child to start a debate on immigration, local politics or to voice your disdain over liquor stores, bars, King Rex, Ledford, your cable TV provider or whatever else you feel is poisoning society this week. These things didn’t murder the child. Leave this thread alone with the political rhetoric and redirect it on a new post. I, (and probably many others will debate with you there) – Instead of questioning the immigration status on the human garbage that took away this child’s life, you should question the mental status and capacity of the DCFS. On a NEW thread.
