Darren O’Neall didn’t have a positive childhood which would mold him into the person he became. A psychopath.

O’Neall grew up a pathological liar and when he hit his teen years he became interested in watching and performing violent sex acts and taking part in illegal behavior. He had impregnated woman and left them to fend parenthood alone. A transient, he traveled the western United States reading the novels of his favorite author, Louis L’Amour, who would regularly write books about cowboys, Indians, gunslinger, outlaws, Texas Rangers and frontier marshals. O’Neall envisioned himself as the characters he read about and even assumed alias’ using their names.

As a teenager he would commit petty thefts and other illegal activity. He never had a proper home life to give him any balance and his behavior continued to grow more dark. As he grew older he started frequenting bars and pubs and remained a loner who went unnoticed among the public. In fact, aside from family and the few friendships he managed to have, it seemed the only people who knew about O’Neall were different Law Enforcement agencies throughout several states. Officers would describe him as a man who kept on his feet most likely in an attempt to stay one step ahead of the law.

Petty thefts would soon turn  to burglary and robbery, carjackings and then assaults, and in 1987 his crimes would turn fatal and ruin the lives of many families.

Robin Pamela Smith, born in New Britain, CT, on April 4, 1965. On the night of March 28, 1987 when she was 22 years old, she left her home for a party with her new friend, “Herb Johnson”. Family and friends didn’t know much about her new male friend. They also didn’t think for a moment that she would never return home.

On May 1, 1987, over one month after Robin vanished, police found her vehicle abandoned near Marysville, north of Seattle, WA. When they searched the trunk they found her bloody clothes and several of her teeth. She had been bludgeoned to death with a hammer. Police already feared the worst but after the gruesome discovery they were certain of her death and immediately started to investigate to determine a possible suspect. A check on the vehicles registration revealed it had been stolen two weeks prior in Nampa, Idaho.

The owner of the vehicle was a trucker who recalled the thief in vivid detail. He described a young, blonde man with the word “JUNE” tattooed on the knuckles of his left hand. The trucker had picked him up and offered him a place to stay the night.

Apparently no deed goes unpunished and when the trucker woke up the following morning the unidentified man was gone and his vehicle had been stolen along with his licensed gun, a .357 magnum revolver.

The tattoo description gave authorities a clue which would eventually lead to the culprit. A culprit who was running from child support payments after abandoning his wife and child six years earlier. Sadly, by the time Robin wasn’t the first nor the last victim of the killers bloody rampage on woman.

Muslim Murders Family And Beheaded His Toddler Neice (WARNING – GRAPHIC PHOTO!)

Photo of Maron Thomas, then 20, accused of murdering his whole family and beheading his niece, the youngest of the five victims

beheaded_toddlerIn January 2010, Maron Thomas, a 20-year-old Austin County man, was charged with capital murder for the murder of five family members.

On midnight, Bellville Police received a distress call to Thomas’s parents home. When they arrived they walked upon a gruesome scene. The bodies of his mother, Debra Phearse Washington, 54; stepfather George T. Washington, 69; sister Kiana Shree Phearse, 25; brother Cedric Thomas, 19; and niece Khalilah Chambers-Massey, who was Kiana Phearse’s daughter. All gunned down in cold blood. Thomas took out most of his rage on his defenceless niece who had been beheaded with a machete.

(Note: The photo shown is NOT the niece of Thomas, but another muslim child beheaded in the middle east.)

Four of the victims were found in the house. Cedric was found nude in the backyard and police believe he tried to flee but was unable to get away alive and was gunned down in a wooded area behind the home. When police discovered his body they also found  lying nearby, the murder weapon used, which was a shotgun and handgun.

Thomas then went on to burglarize a car and was arrested around 3AM after attempting to break into a house roughly one mile away from the massacre. He was reported to have been naked and neighbors were able to hold him at gunpoint until police arrived.

Sister Ka’Tara Price said her brother always had anger problems, and that he’d recently converted to Islam, but that she wasn’t aware of any mental issues. She  believes anger and Thomas’ conversion to the Muslim religion influenced his actions.

Warren Lee Hill Granted Stay of Execution Over Mentally Disabled Claim

warren_hill

02/20/13, ATL, GEORGIA — NYDailyNews Update;

The execution of a Georgia man who killed a fellow prisoner in 1990 was halted Tuesday at the last minute so courts could consider claims that he’s mentally disabled and other issues.
The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted its stay of execution as 52-year-old Warren Lee Hill was being prepared for lethal injection. In a 2-1 decision, a panel of the appeals court said further review is needed of recent affidavits by doctors who changed their minds about Hill’s mental capacity.
“In other words, all of the experts — both the State’s and the petitioner’s — now appear to be in agreement that Hill is in fact mentally retarded,” judges in the majority wrote in their order.
The state court of appeals also issued a stay to allow more time to consider a challenge related to the state’s lethal injection procedure.
Earlier in the day, the state parole board, the Supreme Court of Georgia and the U.S. Supreme Court had all declined to stop the execution.
“We are greatly relieved that the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals has stayed the execution of Warren Hill, a person with mental retardation. All the doctors who have examined Mr. Hill are unanimous in their diagnosis of mental retardation,” defense attorney Brian Kammer said in an email.
A spokeswoman for the state attorney general declined comment.
Hill was sentenced to die for the 1990 beating death of fellow inmate Joseph Handspike. Authorities say he used a board studded with nails to bludgeon Handspike while he slept and other prisoners pleaded with Hill to stop. At the time Hill was already serving a life sentence for murder in the 1986 slaying of his girlfriend, Myra Wright, who had been shot 11 times.
Hill has received support from various activists and from former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn.
“Georgia should not violate its own prohibition against executing individuals with serious diminished capacity,” President Carter said in a statement.
Hill was originally set to be executed in July, but the state delayed his execution when it changed its execution procedure from a three-drug combination to a one-drug method. The state Supreme Court then further delayed the execution after Hill’s lawyers filed a challenge saying corrections officials violated administrative procedure when they made the change. The state’s high court earlier this month denied that challenge, and Hill’s execution was reset for Tuesday.
Hill’s lawyers argue that he is mentally disabled and therefore shouldn’t be executed. The state maintains that the defense failed to meet its burden of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that Hill is mentally disabled.
Death penalty defendants in Georgia have to prove they are mentally disabled beyond a reasonable doubt to avoid execution, the strictest standard in the country. Hill’s lawyers have said the high standard for proving mental disability is problematic because psychiatric diagnoses are subject to a degree of uncertainty that is virtually impossible to overcome. But Georgia’s strict standard has repeatedly been upheld by state and federal courts.

February 17, 2013, GEORGIA — Defense Lawyers desperately trying to save Georgia Death Row Inmate, Warren L. Hill, who is set to be executed Tuesday night

Warren Lee Hill was serving a life sentence for the 1986 murder of his 18-year-old girlfriend, Maya Wright, before being placed on Death Row for the 1990 murder of Joseph Handspike, another inmate. Hill attacked Handspike with a nail embedded in a board, hitting him multiple times. His defense lawyers have been trying desperately to save the man who they claim has ‘mental disabilities’.

Hill is currently at an Atlanta prison and is scheduled to be executed on Tuesday evening at 7PM (Feb. 19, 2013) despite a Supreme Court decision outlawing capital punishment for criminals who are deemed ‘mentally retarded’. On Feb. 5, 2013 Attorney General Samuel Olens released a statement confirming Hill’s execution date.

On February 5, 2013, the Superior Court of Lee County filed an order, setting the seven-day window in which the execution of Warren Lee Hill may occur to begin at noon, February 19, 2013, and ending seven days later at noon on February 26, 2013.

– The release

Hill was supposed to be executed in July, 2012 but was granted a stay of execution after he made an appeal due to the new execution method, which involves the injection of a single drug called pentobarbital, — the same drug often used for euthanizing animals. (Previously, the state of Georgia had used the three-drug cocktail method which typically includes a barbiturate, paralytic, and potassium solution.) — He is one of three Georgia inmates on Death Row trying to fight for a court order that would prevent the state from using a drug to execute them without a doctor’s prescription first.

On Feb 4, 2013, the State Supreme Court judge denied one of Hills last appeals, claiming he met the criteria for mental retardation by a  “preponderance of evidence”.

However, according to defense lawyers, Hill’s IQ was approximately 70.

Many have advocated on Hill’s behalf, including US President Jimmy Carter as well as Handspike’s family saying they “feel strongly that persons with any kind of significant mental disabilities should not be put to death.”

Three doctors who previously took the stand to testify for the state of Georgia against Hill are now claiming that he is in-fact mentally disabled, and should not be put to death.

Dr. Thomas Sachy released a statement last week: ‘Having reviewed my earlier evaluation results and the far more extensive materials from the record of this case, I believe that my judgement that Mr Hill did not meet the criteria for mild mental retardation was in error.’

The other two doctors agreed and claimed their evaluations of Hill mental state in 2000 were ‘rush jobs.’

The state of Georgia has said that Hill’s lawyers have failed to prove ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’ that their client is mentally disabled and the execution shall proceed.

The Stalking of Laurie Show

Laurie Show, age 15.

School photo of Laurie Show within a year or two prior to her death

Below story published by Find A Death by an online user. I do not know the actual source of the article/story however, the link to the thread is below. (Photos were gathered threw out the internet including the Crime Library and Murderpedia.)

First a little about Laurie Show. She was a  16-year-old girl who, in the early 90’s, attended Conestoga Valley High School in Lampeter Township, Pennsylvania. She was a typical teen. She didn’t ‘rebel’ and was considered a very good student who got good grades, attended church and enjoyed reading the Bible. She was very friendly, liked to hang out with her friends, was very close to her mother, Hazel Show, and her father who was divorced from Hazel. Some activities she enjoyed was bowling, going to the movies, swimming, etc. Unfortunately Laurie, who was very friendly and kindhearted, met another young woman named Lisa Michelle Lambert who went by her middle name, Michelle. It was a quick ‘friendship’ that quickly turned fatal.

connestoga-valley-high-scho

It was the summer of 1991 in East Lampeter Township, Penn. Before the year was over, four teenagers from different circles would find themselves drawn into a deadly triangle that would end in the tragic death of 16 year old Laurie Show.

Lisa Michelle Lambert began dating Lawrence “Butch” Yunkin, despite that fact that Yunkin had physically assaulted Lambert and raped her when the two started ‘dating’.

Soon the couples fixation with each other would spin horribly out of control and they began having violent arguments. The destructive relationship only got worse when the couple began using other people to make each other jealous. This particular summer, Lawrence sought out 15 year old Laurie Show. A move that would prove fatal.

Photo of Lawrence and Michelle shortly before their imprisonment. Michelle had naturally brown hair but dyed it blonde. She also had brown eyes but regularly wore blue contacts.

Laurie was a fun-loving and popular 10th grader who everybody loved to be around. The couple dated twice during a one week relationship. On their second date, Lawrence raped the innocent 15 year old in the back of his van, a charge which Yunkin denies.. After the alleged date rape, Laurie confided her terrible secret in both her parents. It was during this time frame, Lisa and Lawrence got back together.

When Lisa learned that Lawrence had dated Laurie she nearly went insane with jealousy. However, it wasn’t the dating that had Lisa in an uproar, it was the idea that Lawrence had slept with another girl, completely ignoring the fact that it was not consensual.

butch_yunkinThree small photos, one is a high school photo of Tabitha Buck taken within a year or two prior to her imprisonment, and the other two photos are Lawrence Yunkin.

These violent, jealous feelings grew into uncontrollable urges when Lisa learned she was pregnant. Lisa would then take her pent-up anger and fixate it on 16 year old Laurie Show by stalking her in public, threatening her, calling her home dozens of times and leaving lewd messages. One day, Lambert followed Show and her mother, Hazel Show, to the grocery market. She then walked up to them and starting screaming and calling Show names before turning her attention to Show’s mother and telling her that her daughter was a “slut who has ruined her life”.

Lambert, who was a few months pregnant at this time, followed Show to a store parking lot one afternoon and beat her up.

Show was so terrified of Lambert that she never went anywhere alone. She wouldn’t even stay at her home alone. Her parents took turns staying at the apartment with her, or taking her with them on errands.

On the night of December 19, 1991 – Hazel Show receives a call from a woman claiming to be Laurie’s guidance counselor requesting a meeting early the next morning. Lisa Michelle Lambert stops at the local K-Mart and purchases two ski masks and a rope then appears at the apartment of Tabitha Buck upset and wanting to talk. Tabitha would later tell that Lisa was upset over a possible legal problem regarding her pervious assaults on Laurie Show. It was a lack in judgment that Tabitha Buck will never forgive herself for. Lambert went on to inform Buck to wear her hair up, not to wear any make up or fingernail polish the next morning.

Tabitha made her way to the door, with every step her feet felt ten times heavier. She raised her hand and knocked at the door. Laurie answered the door and “I asked if Hazel was home and she said ‘No.’ I asked again for some reason.” Lambert comes up behind Buck and charges in front of her into the Show home where a brief struggle ensues. The two began struggling, arms flailing. For one brief instance Laurie felt freedom as Lisa released her with a shove. Laurie ran towards Buck as Lambert screamed, “Don’t let her out! Stop her!” just as Laurie ran into Buck and the door. Laurie grabbed the sunglasses off of Bucks face and tossed them across the room, scratching her in the process.

“She didn’t get out,” Buck tells the story quietly from prison during an interview with a local paper. Tabitha catches a gleam of something shiny and realizes that Lambert has a knife. Laurie must have seen the blade at approximately the same time, though she made an attempt to grab it from Lambert. Considering her fearful state, I don’t think she realized that she was grabbing the blade itself or perhaps she didn’t care. In either event, Lambert yanked the knife back causing wounds on Laurie’s hand.

“There was blood,” Tabitha recounts somberly, “Laurie went running back to a room. Michelle went after her. Then me.”

Tabitha watched in horror as Michelle grabbed Laurie by the hair and drew the knife through it, chopping off handfuls of her hair then began savagely beating her. Tabitha recalls seeing Laurie with the phone but is unsure of what happened to it. Laurie tried to fight off her attacker as best she could by kicking her, but Lambert was enraged and Laurie had no chance.

Laurie, still surprised and unsure of what was expected of her is tearfully questing Lambert, “What do you want? Leave me alone!” Her plea’s went unnoticed by Lambert who was at this point was uncontrollable to any extent. The jealousy and anger she had for Laurie built up into rage by this point. Laurie was bent over on her stomach as Lambert began beating her again, this time hitting her in the head with the knife. Michelle handed Tabitha the knife at that point and reached for the rope attempting to put it over Laurie’s head. Tabitha recalls Lisa telling Laurie “Stop struggling Laurie.” Michelle demanded, “It’ll be a lot easier this way.” as she attempts to place the rope around Laurie’s neck. Lambert finally gets the rope around her neck, but Laurie begins struggling again. As Laurie leaned a little bit further over, Tabitha saw her reach for a pair of scissors and knocked them out her reach. Buck winces as she recalls the event. Lisa Michelle Lambert, driven into a jealous rage tells Tabitha to “Cut her throat” Buck refuses. Lisa takes the knife back from Buck and tired of Laurie’s struggling, she cut’s her in the leg and tells her to stop struggling.

Laurie had by now rolled over on her and began kicking at Lambert again. Laurie, desperately fighting for her life, is screaming, hitting, kicking, attempting any means of escape as Lambert again screams “You’re going to kill my baby! Don’t let her kill my baby!” Lambert screamed. “Grab her feet! Make her stop kicking!” Buck in response to Lambert’s cries placed herself on Laurie’s legs facing the door and away from the horror unfolding behind her. In the next instant Laurie stopped moving. The moment Laurie stopped moving, Tabitha slowly raises herself off of Laurie’s legs and turns in shock to a scene that should have been in a horror movie. She watched as Lisa Michelle Lambert drew the knife across Laurie’s throat as though she were cutting a loaf of bread.

“Is she dead?”  Tabitha asked in horror.

“I don’t know.” Lisa responded then proceeded to cut Laurie’s throat further in an attempt to make certain she was indeed dead. Tabitha watched as Lisa Michelle Lambert held Laurie’s chin back with her left hand and cut her throat numerous more times.

Within minutes, a 16 year old innocent child was dead at the hands of two killers. One committed the act, the other did nothing to prevent it.

When Lambert was finished carving 16 year old Laurie Show up, she handed the tip of the knife to Tabitha. Tabitha placed the tip in her coat pocket, picked up her sunglasses that had been knocked off during the initial confrontation and together, the two killers left the condo and Laurie Show bleeding to death on the floor on her bedroom.

At approximately 7:20 a.m. Hazel Show returned home only to be stopped by a concerned neighbor questioning her as to what was going on upstairs to cause so much commotion. Hazel dropped everything and ran, a sick feeling in the pit of her stomach. No person, certainly not a mother, should ever have to witness the scene the Hazel Show was greeted with when entering her 16 year old daughters bedroom. When entering Laurie’s bedroom, Hazel saw Laurie in the middle of her bedroom floor lying in a puddle of her own blood. A rope was knotted around her neck and her throat was savagely cut.

Hazel shrieked in horror, screamed for her neighbor to call 911 and cradled her daughter, telling her that she was sorry, and that she (Laurie) didn’t do anything wrong. Laurie managed to whisper three words before she died. “Michelle did it”.

Lisa Lambert was arrested the same day.

lisa-michelle-lambertVERDICT:

After waiving her right to a trial by jury, Ms. Lambert proceeded to trial and was found guilty of first degree murder and criminal conspiracy to commit murder on July 20, 1992. The Commonwealth elected to seek the death penalty in the Lambert case. Following a hearing on the penalty phase, the court declined to impose the death penalty and sentenced Ms. Lambert to a term of life in prison without the possibility of parole. She is currently incarcerated at Massachusetts Correctional Institute of Framingham in Framingham, MA.

Baby killed after her mother’s boyfriend shook, slapped, kicked and forcefully threw the child onto his bed where she bounced over four feet onto the floor

Article published by Dailymail.co.uk (also known as MailOnline) on 01/25/13 — Tragic 9-month-old girl is ‘beaten to death’ by her mother’s boyfriend in senseless fit of rage

A 23-year-old man stands accused of beating to death his girlfriend’s 9-month-old baby girl.

The infant, identified as Ariel Eluziario, was first taken to a hospital in New Bedford, Massachusetts at 6pm Thursday and then flown via helicopter to a children’s hospital in Providence, Rhode Island where she was pronounced dead around 10pm.

Last Christmas: Ariel Eluziario celebrated her first and only Christmas in 2012. She was brutally beaten and later died allegedly at the hands of her mother's 23-year-old boyfriend Ethen Harrison
Ariel Eluziario celebrated her first and only Christmas in 2012. She was brutally beaten and later died allegedly at the hands of her mother’s 23-year-old boyfriend Ethen Harrison

Though the girl’s mother has not been identified, Mail Online was able to obtain photos of the tragically slain little girl through the accused killer’s public Facebook profile.

Ethen Harrison of New Bedford was arraigned in district court today on charges of reckless endangerment of a child, assault and battery on a child causing substantial bodily injury, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

He is currently being held without bail.

Harrison’s Facebook profile, which lists his occupation as ‘F*** That Sh**!!!!,’ also lists him as ‘In a Relationship’ with Amanda Eluziario.

Photos of the young couple together, the adorable little girl, and of both Harrison and Eluziario with the little girl remain on Eluziario’s profile.

So cold: Ethen Harrison, right, admitted to police he slapped, shook and dropped Arial Eluziario four feet off a bed. The 9-month-old girl was pronounced dead Jan. 24

Harrison admitted to police he slapped, shook and dropped Ariel Eluziario four feet off a bed. The 9-month-old girl was pronounced dead Jan. 24, 2013

Much of the photo section of Amanda Eluzario’s profile is dedicated to shots of the smiling little Ariel Lillian.
In one particularly jarring photo, Harrison looks down at the baby, sneering as she cries helplessly.

Brutally slain: As part of their move to revoke accused baby killer Ethen Harrison's bail, prosecutors in the case said Ariel Eluziario suffered 'subdural hemorrhage, retinal hemorrhaging, a blot clot in the brain and other signs of severe abuse'

As part of their move to revoke accused baby killer Ethen Harrison’s bail, prosecutors in the case said Ariel Eluziario suffered ‘subdural hemorrhage, retinal hemorrhaging, a blot clot in the brain and other signs of severe abuse’

Harrison, who was not Ariel’s father, was the only person with the baby at the time of the incident.

He was out on bail for unrelated pending charges including larceny and threats to commit a crime at the time of the slaying.
Harrison’s own father has held a restraining order against his son since June.

‘He is out of control,’ the father, Francis Harrison, attested in court documents. ‘When he mad he breaks things, windows, doors. Whatever he gets his hands on. He hurts himself. He carries knives.’

It is unclear if the weapon referred to in the charges against Harrison is a knife. Also unclear is the exact nature of all the injuries that led to Ariel Eluziario’s extremely untimely death.

Though police descriptions of her tragic end are vague, prosecutors submitted the child’s ‘subdural hemorrhage, retinal hemorrhaging, a blot clot in the brain and other signs of severe abuse’ as reasons the judge should revoke Harrison’s bail.

Harrison admitted during police questioning that he’d dropped Ariel onto the floor, forcefully picked her back up, threw her onto the bed and caused her to bounce four feet back down onto the floor. He also admitted to shaking and slapping the child.

Mother deemed insane when she drowned her toddler in 2010 is freed after doctors say she’s regained her sanity

(DAILYMAIL) — A mother who was deemed insane after drowning her three-year-old daughter in the bathtub has been allowed to walk free from jail just three years later – because doctors say she regained her sanity.

Jennifer Bigham, from Modesto, California, admitted killing the toddler in 2010 and was found not guilty of murder by reason of insanity.

After doctors ruled she is now sane, Bigham has been allowed to walk free and was released from jail on Tuesday.

Jennifer Bigham, 23, was being held without bail in the Stanislaus County Jail on suspicion of child abuse and murder in the death of her daughter, Alexandrea, sheriff's deputies said.

The 26-year-old was pictured smiling in her blue hospital gown as she was released from the hospital.

Two relatives who were in the home at the time of the drowning heard the little girl splash and scream. By the time they got to the bathroom, she was unconscious and Bigham had stabbed herself and locked herself inside a bedroom.

The judge’s decision is said to be extremely rare, especially because the judge did not send her to a psychiatric hospital after the ruling, but to jail.

School of Law Professor John Meyers told CBS: ‘I understand why people would be upset, but what you have to understand is a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity, means not guilty.’

‘It may seem anomalous to people that a person who murders a child could go “free” after three years, but what people need to remember is that if it’s a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity, don’t forget the not guilty part.’

He said the doctor’s report would have been crucial to the judge’s decision, especially if she was deemed to not be a danger to herself or others.

Prosecutors disagree and are going to appeal the decision.
‘She’s a danger to society,’ said Elaine Casillas, a deputy district attorney, according to the Bee. ‘She’s not been evaluated properly.’

The same doctors who believed Bigham was insane at the time of her toddler’s death re-examined her and testified Tuesday that her sanity is restored.

The Worst Case of Child Abuse In US History – The Murder of Baby Brianna (GRAPHIC)

brianna_lopez

Brianna Mariah Lopez a.k.a “Baby Brianna” (February 14, 2002 – July 19, 2002)

Brianna Lopez who is also known to many as “Baby Brianna”, was a baby girl who was born in a New Mexico hospital on Valentines Day, 2002 to her mother, Stephanie Lopez and her father, Andy Walters. She would have turned eleven years old on February 14, 2013 but sadly, she never made it.

When Baby Brianna left the hospital after her birth she moved into a home in Las Cruces, N.M. shared by her parents and Uncle, Steven Lopez.

The abuse started almost immediately. Instead of hugs and kisses Brianna received slaps and pinches. She was tormented on a daily basis, both verbally and physically. Slapped, kicked, punched, pinched, thrown, raped, etc. You name it this infant endured it.

Mugshot photos of Brianna’s parents, Andrew “Andy” Walters and Stephanie Lopez

When Brianna would cry at the pain that was inflicted on her, her abusers would laugh and stuff her mouth with clothing to muffle her screams. Her own mother would bite and pinch her when she got frustrated by the crying, but for the most part it was the infant’s father and uncle who tormented her while Stephanie sat back and ignored her daughter’s cries.

Medical examiners would later report the marks as being both old and new which proved prolong abuse. Brianna also had bleeding on her brain, both old and new, as well as broken ribs, broken legs, broken arms, lacerations to her fingers, vagina and anus. She had been abused everyday of her short life.

Baby Brianna was what many would consider a strong baby because she managed to survive 153 days despite coming into this cruel world weighing only several pounds.

On the evening of July 18th, 2002 Andy went out to purchase beer and when he came home they all proceeded to get drunk. Stephanie claimed to have had only a few beers before heading to bed in the same room the others were in. During this time both Andy and Steven decided to play their own sick, demented game where they would toss Brianna up in the air, let her hit the ceiling and watch her tumble to the ground. They would later tell authorities that Brianna was screaming and wailing when this was happening. Apparently the baby’s mother didn’t hear her daughter screaming and crying in agony.

Early the next morning on July 19, 2002 at approximately 7:15a.m. Stephanie awoke to Brianna crying and noticed fresh bruises on her and asked the others what happened. They told her that they may have been “a little to rough with her last night”. She accepted their answer and ignored her child’s injuries.

That same morning Stephanie noticed Brianna needed a diaper change and Andy volunteered to do it.  During the diaper change he wrapped a baby wipe around his finger and inserted it into Brianna’s anus. He also sodomized her with foreign objects. When Stephanie noticed Brianna near death she ignored it and decided to wait several hours before calling an ambulance. When she did find the time to call them, she lied and told them her daughter had fallen from her high chair. Apparently she was delusional enough to think authorities would by that story.

Brianna was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead at 11:10AM. She was just 5 months and 5 days old.

This photo shows the back of Brianna’s head where you can see a large bite mark to her earlobe.

The first officer to see baby Brianna in the hospital was Detective Lindell Wright. He remembers one thought going through his mind:  “I’ve got a lot to do.” 

“Literally bruised from head to toe, from the top of her head all throughout her body all the way to the big toe on her right foot.” said Governor Susana Martinez who prosecuted Brianna’s family.

They took sadistic joy out of torturing this infant. Not one family member cared about her, not one of them attempted to protect her and there’s zero proof to suggest she was ever shown love in her short life. She was there for their own sadistic amusement.

When police searched the home they couldn’t find one toy or even a photo of Brianna laughing or smiling.  No evidence to indicate she enjoyed one moment of her life.

Many relatives including Brianna’s grandparents knew what was occurring but ignored it. They knew their granddaughter was being raped by both her father and uncle, they knew she had pinch marks from head to toe in different stages of healing, they knew she was being tormented and had marks, cuts and lacerations but they turned a blind eye and let it continue for five, going on six more months until baby Brianna’s little body couldn’t handle the abuse any longer.

Officer Wright has seen alot during his career but Brianna’s case will haunt him for life.

“I cried my eyes out. It will stay with me for the rest of my life. It tests you to the point you’re not sure you can speak,””You’re afraid that the emotion will take over.” said Wright.

At the time Brianna was murdered a person who committed intentional child abuse resulting in death faced a maximum of 18 years in prison.

“Eighteen years for the life of a child?” State Sen. Mary Jane Garcia of Doña Ana said. “I thought it was absurd.”

It took three years of trying and in 2005, Senate Bill 166, also known as the “Baby Brianna Bill” was officially signed into law by Governor Bill Richardson. The bill made child abuse, which results in death, a first degree felony in New Mexico and set the mandatory minimum sentence at 30 years in prison.

Three relatives, including her grandparents, were sentenced to 30 days in jail for failing to report the abuse. The maximum is one year.

Stephanie Lopez was convicted of negligent child abuse after she failed to do anything to help her child.  The New Mexico Corrections Department said that she could be released as early as September 28, 2016. Less than 15 for her daughter’s torture death. The New Mexico State Parole Board said that it’s almost certain that she’ll be released, provided that she finds a suitable home and can meet the requirements of her release conditions.

The public was outraged when they heard about the possible release. Dozens created petitions which quickly gained signatures and many called the Governor.

Thousands of people in the community weeped over Brianna’s horrific death. Mourners who never had the chance to meet Brianna in life came together for the baby girl in her after-life. They paid for her casket and burial and claimed her body when nobody else did. Her gravesite became a memorial site with dozens of toys and flowers, something Brianna’s family didn’t approve of.

Brianna’s family and relatives didn’t put a penny towards the child’s funeral, burial and grave-stone. Heck, they didn’t even claim her, the community did. Her family didn’t want Brianna to receive love even after her death and went out of their way to purchase a cage to go over her gravestone in an attempt to shield her. The cage is a mess, unkempt and full of trash.

The community refused to let Brianna and her story simmer and still placed flowers around the cage. They’ve also created another memorial site to visit and remember the little girl who never had a chance.

When asked why they put a cage over Brianna’s grave-site, Brianna’s family had little to say.

“They were asked, and they said they just wanted to be left alone and they wanted Brianna to be left alone,” Martinez said.

Inside the cage is a cherub with a finger raised to her lips. Some believe it’s a message.

“My first thought was, ‘Let’s not talk about what’s occurred here,'” Lopez said.

The community vows to not let that happen.  People still visit and leave flowers and have built another marker as well.  Brianna’s story has been told dozens of times and is still being told over a decade later on websites and online memorials including  Brianna Lopez Last Memories and Facebook memorials such as In Loving Memory of Baby Brianna

Detectives, social workers and prosecutors who worked on her case will also remember Brianna.

“Before they started the autopsy and her little face was lying on a white sheet and I thought she looks asleep,” Wright said. “So I just took the picture.”

The picture was photo-shopped to edit out all the marks, bruises and scars she had.  It’s the Brianna the community likes to remember.

“There’s a photograph of her to carry on of her little life,” Wright said.

The picture hangs on the wall next to Susana Martinez’s desk.

“It’s a reminder, of course, of why we do what we do,” Martinez said. “If you forget you’ll either become calloused or you will become Jell-O. “You can’t do this job well unless you are in the middle, and that’s just a good reminder why we do it.”

Brianna is never far from the detective either. “It drives me to work harder to prevent, to be a voice for every child of abuse,” Wright said. “That’s what it does.”

Wayne County man is acquitted in death of his son, who drank drain cleaner in meth house

bryan_daniels_acquitted

BOWLING GREEN — A Wayne County man was not responsible for the gruesome death of his 20-month-old son, who drank drain cleaner allegedly used to make methamphetamine, a jury ruled Friday.

The jury acquitted Bryan Daniels, 22, of murder in the May 30, 2009, death of his son Kayden, as well as an alternate charge of second-degree manslaughter.

After deliberating nearly seven hours, the jury also found Daniels not guilty on charges of endangering Kayden and of being involved in a criminal syndicate to produce meth.

Circuit Judge Vernon Miniard Jr. earlier ruled Daniels not guilty on a charge of making meth.

Daniels and members of his family and defense team, led by Somerset attorney Mark Stanziano, burst into tears and hugged when Miniard announced the verdict. Daniels has served 44 months in jail or on house arrest since Kayden died and faced a sentence of 20 years to life if convicted of murder. Instead, he left the courthouse a free man nearly four years after his son’s death. Daniels was tried in Warren Circuit Court in Bowling Green because a jury could not be seated in Wayne County.

Daniels said the first thing he plans to do is visit Kayden’s grave, which he has never seen.

“I’m very happy, very happy,” Daniels said. “Kayden was with me today. He knowed I wouldn’t do nothing to hurt him.”

Daniels said he has a job lined up remodeling restaurants in Indiana, and he said he will try to improve his life.

Daniels said he shouldn’t have been charged with causing his son’s death.

Commonwealth’s Attorney Matthew Leveridge had no comment on the verdict.

However, he said he will prosecute three others charged in connection with Kayden’s death. They are Danny Anderson Jr. and James Hunt, who allegedly made meth in the bedroom of the small mobile home where Kayden lived and are charged with murder, and Larry Branham, who rented the trailer and allegedly facilitated the crimes.
