GABRIEL FERNANDEZ BRUTALLY TORTURED AND MURDERED BY HIS MOTHER AND HER BOYFRIEND – DCFS IGNORED MORE THAN 60 REPORTS OF ABUSE

Gabriel Fernandez was a beautiful 8 year old boy.  He deserved a life of love, support and innocence, a life he once had but was ripped from him and shattered.  When Gabriel was a month old, his mother turned over custody of the little boy to her parents, saying that “she did not want Gabriel and had no love for the child.”  For seven years Gabriel lived happily and safely with his loving grandparents.  In October of 2012, Gabriel’s mother enlisted the help of DCFS and regained custody of Gabriel, despite past allegations of abuse and the objections of Gabriel’s grandparents.  Gabriel was placed in his mother’s care despite the lack of a court order.  DCFS had sent Gabriel to his death, the little man was murdered only 7 months after being taken from his grandparents.

It breaks my heart to know that in the last days of Gabriel’s life, he was shown no love, instead he was beaten, abused, tortured, emotionally destroyed and ignored.  This little man spent his final days in fear of when the next blow would come, of when the next humiliation would be forced upon him, all the while hoping and praying for the day that someone would come along and save him from the hell he was living in.  That day never came.

On May 22, 2013, emergency medical responders were called to Gabriel’s home, and they found this little man barely breathing.  Gabriel’s injuries were severe, extensive and horrifically unbelievable.  Amongst others, he was suffering a fractured skull, three broken ribs, burns to his skin, skin that was missing, two of his teeth had been knocked out, cigarette burns, and had BB pellets lodged in his lung and groin.  He was covered in bruises and abrasions, and was routinely sent to school with chunks of his hair shaved off, leaving raw sores where the clippers dug into his scalp.

Gabriel also had ligature marks on his ankles and wrists.  This beautiful boy was sexually abused as well, talking about being forced to perform oral sex on a relative, continuing to add to the horror.  Gabriel was also tortured with humiliation, forced to wear a girl’s dress and other girls’ clothing to school.

Gabriel fought for 2 days to survive, but his little body had been broken beyond repair, and on May 24, 2013, the angels gave Gabriel his wings and brought him home.

Gabriel’s mother, Pearl Fernandez and his mother’s boyfriend, Isauro Aguirre, were arrested and charged each with one count of capital murder with the special circumstances of torture.  Aguirre told police that on the day Gabriel was taken to the hospital, he had hit the little boy at least 10 times for lying and “being dirty”.

Gabriel’s maternal grandparents, Sandra and Robert Fernandez, have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against several Los Angeles County agencies, including the Los Angeles County and its sheriff’s department, the Palmdale Unified School District, LA County Department of Children and Family Services and its director, and the LA County Department of Public Social Services.  Also named in the lawsuit are four social workers, two of which are supervisors, and welfare fraud investigator, Javier Cruz.  One of the social workers stated that they feel no guilt in Gabriel’s death.

Tragically, Sandra, who suffered from a long illness, passed away in January 2014 and joined Gabriel in heaven.  Gabriel’s Aunt, Emily Carranza, stated “It took a toll on her.  After his death, she just gave up.”

The lawsuit alleges that child welfare workers illegally removed Gabriel from his grandparents’ home where he had lived for most of his life and placed him in his mother’s custody.  After ripping Gabriel from the home he knew and throwing him into a living hell, the agency then failed to investigate more than 60 – SIXTY reports of abuse.  These reports were made by numerous people including, Gabriel’s teacher, mothers with children in Gabriel’s class, family members and neighbors.

Attached below is the link for an interview with Gabriel’s teacher, Jennifer Garcia, gave speaking about his abuse, the countless reports and the complete lack of action to save Gabriel.  She speaks of how Gabriel came to school with markings on his face which were later determined to be from a BB gun.  “My first report was from October, and in every single report I made, there was enough information in that report that he should have been removed that first October.”

County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said “The red flags were all over the place.  They were ignored.  It is just inexplicable to me.”  Gabriel’s Grandfather stated “I want to know those people that went to that apartment that were sitting there calling my grandson a liar, that he was just making things up.”  I would like to know who these people are as well.

One of Gabriel’s neighbors, Claudia Segoviano, said that she and other residents in the apartment complex suspected that Gabriel was being abused for months.  “Everybody noticed, because he would come out to take out the trash and wouldn’t talk to anybody.” stated Claudia.  She also went on to say that she had noticed greenish bruises on Gabriel’s face, arms and legs many times while he was taking out the trash.  Claudia says she wanted to report the abuse, but thought the family was already being investigated for possible abuse allegations.  “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?’.  And I saw like one time the cops came when he was all messed up and they left.  Gabriel stayed there and they left.”  Claudia also spoke of the times where she had witnessed Gabriel wearing a dress and girls’ shoes.  “I saw him dressed up in a girl’s dress two times, my Mom said she saw him three times.”  Claudia witnessed Fernandez ordering Gabriel down the stairs on one of these occasions.  “He was sad, you could tell, like nobody likes to be dressed as the opposite sex.  I asked my brother, ‘what happened to him?’ and my little brother said that was a form of punishment.”

On the night before 911 was called reporting Gabriel as unresponsive, neighbors stated they could hear screams and wails, followed by banging sounds coming from the apartment where Gabriel lived.

Now this isn’t just that DCFS failed to act – they did many things that leave Gabriel’s blood directly on their hands.  You see, DCFS had previous run ins with Fernandez in the past.  Eight separate investigations were opened due to possible abuse in the family including two of Gabriel’s siblings, 10 and 12, and Fernandez had in fact already had another child removed from her care due to abuse.  Gabriel’s siblings are now living with their father’s family in Texas.

DCFS released a 121 page file detailing abuse in the home, interviews with the children done only after Gabriel passed.  One sibling recounted the events that led up to Gabriel’s murder and the prolonged abuse that they had all been suffering.  One portion of the file states “Siblings reported that he and his 12 year old sibling where wrestling and chasing each other when the sibling tripped, fell and hit his left temple on a table in the bedroom.  Mother and boyfriend were reportedly informed of what happened and placed the sibling in the shower to wake him up.”

Authorities soon realized exactly how much abuse was being reported, and ignored.  Written in the file were statements from another of Gabriel’s siblings.  “Child informed the caller that his mother hits him with the buckle end of the belt when he can’t finish his homework.  Sometimes bleeds from being hit with the belt buckle.” was scribbled down on October 30, 2013.  “Child informed the caller that he has bruises on his back where his mother hit him.  Child was worried that his mother was going to hit him later today because he didn’t understand his homework.”  The report went on to read that the child demonstrated how to snort cocaine and was being exposed to illicit drugs in the home.

The file also contained information saying that Gabriel’s mother appeared to have confessed to hitting the child with a belt buckle.  Fernandez stated she did not know how else to discipline her son.

TIME OUT!  There are a thousands, THOUSANDS of ways to discipline a child without hitting and humiliating a child.  Let’s see, we have the time out method, we have the naughty chair method (I used to use this method and my exceptionally brilliant son, at the time he was 3 year old, decided the best way to get back at me for putting him in the naughty chair was to stay sitting in it for an extra 10 minutes each time, effectively driving me nuts!), we have the taking away of objects method, the taking away of social events, the taking away the phone, computer and TV method, AND the method my father used that was effective on my sisters and I especially in our teenage years, after giving us hell for whatever stupid thing we did he would force us to sit in the living room next to him for 10 minutes, torture for a teenager who wants nothing more but to slam the door to their bedroom and live in their own world … my Dad is a genius in dealing with teenage girls!  OK the point I am making here is that I don’t accept the excuse that this monster had no other way to hurt these tiny, innocent children as discipline, and even further, discipline for things that should never carry a punishment.  If they don’t understand their homework, sit down with them and help them work through it – remember we are educating our children, not forcing them in the ultimatum to be brilliant or get beaten.  If the child was not doing their homework, then I would definitely consider a nonviolent method of discipline – but here’s the thing.  At 8 years old, our precious babies need us to help guide them, this is why we sign their agenda, quiz them on their spelling words and listen to them read.  You will know they are doing their homework every night, because you are doing it with them!  Alright, time to step down from the soap box before I lose my ever loving mind.

Back to DCFS and the completely disgusting thing that happened next.  Each time an investigation was opened, DCFS only met with Fernandez, never assessing any of the children for signs of abuse or interviewing them about their home life without their would abusers intimidating them along the way.  Gabriel’s grandparents say that had this been done, they most certainly would have seen the abuse and returned Gabriel to his grandparents.

The Los Angeles County DCFS director Philip Browning stated that the system had in fact failed Gabriel, and more “critical thinking and common sense” are needed to prevent another case like Gabriel’s.  I would say that is the understatement of a lifetime, compassion and humanity would be great things for this agency to have and to use to save children, rather than making excuses after a child is murdered on their watch due to their negligence and laziness.

Pearl Fernandez

It gets worse.  After Fernandez made allegations that her parents were only using Gabriel for money, Javier Cruz visited the home she lived in, the same home where Gabriel was tortured and murdered, and learnt of injuries Gabriel was suffering from, which included a burn on his foot.  Instead of reporting these injuries and protecting Gabriel as he should have ….. HE ASKED FERNANDEZ ON A DATE ….. The lawsuit alleges that Cruz, who is a mandated reporter with a moral obligation to report suspected abuse is guilty of a “breach of mandatory duties.”  I say lock this guy up and throw away the key before he allows another child to murdered because he is too busy looking for a date instead of doing his job.

In honor of Gabriel, a new project called “Gabriel’s House”, is well under way.  Gabriel’s House is a public facility for area youth in Palmdale that gives them a place to learn music, dance, visual arts and photography.  These children can paint and play in a safe and encouraging environment.  On March 1st, 2014, the ribbon was officially cut and the center opened.  A picture of Gabriel hangs on the wall in the house, and his story will be prominently displayed.

Everything about this case angers and hurts me deeply.  I have spent a lot of time thinking about Gabriel and shedding tears for this little man.  The one thing that completely destroys me and leaves me crumpling to the floor and becoming a sobbing mess is that Gabriel had written about contemplating suicide.  At 8 years old he was in so much pain that he wanted to end his own life.  At 8 years old he lost his hope and believed that he could not win this war.  I can’t think of anything worse than an 8 year old child planning his own death.

Gabriel Fernandez’s Memorial

While it is true that we will never see equal justice for Gabriel and although there is nothing worth a child’s life, the community is rallying together to do the best thing they can a Gabriel’s memory.  They are providing other children with a beacon of hope, providing a SAFE place where they can gather and hang out with their friends, they can just be kids.  Celebrating Gabriel’s life, and remembering all of the amazing wonder and love that made him himself, is the very best thing we can do.  Use his memory to learn how to further protect children like Gabriel in the hopes of saving another child from suffering the same tragedy.  We want everyone to remember Gabriel and to never forget what he lived through – however, we also want everyone to remember Gabriel as a smiling, active, perfect angel.  This little man is watching over us now, and I know he is helping guide other vulnerable children to see the light, the lights we have blazing every night to Light Their Way Home.

      FOCUS ALSO ON THE NO GOOD CHILD SERVICES WHO ONLY WENT TO WORK FOR A PAY CHECK!!! THE LAW SHOULD THROW AWAY THE KEY AND MAKE AN EXAMPLE ON THE CHILDREN SERVICES AND THE CHILDREN SERVICE SUPERVISOR AND MANGER!!!

      THE LAW NEEDS TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF THESE NO GOOD LOSER CHILDREN SERVICES!!! THEY ARE ALSO VERY RESPONSIBLE FOR GABRIEL FERNANDEZ DEATH DUE TO THEY ALL IGNORES GABRIEL SWEET ANGEL TINY BODY BRUTAL INJURIES. THE SUPERVISOR OF THE CHILDREN SERVICES SHOULD ALSO BE MADE AN EXAMPLE OF!! THROW THE BOOK AT THESE UNDESERVING CHILDREN SERVICES AND THROW AWAY THE KEY FOR OVER 50 YEARS!

  3. ANYONE WHO TORTURES, MOLESTS, RAPES, ABUSES WOMEN AND CHILDREN ARE ABLE TO BE REHABILITAED EVER. THEY SHOULD BE TRIED, EXECUTED RIGHT AWAY SO THE PEOPLE DO NOT WASTE A PENNY OF TAX PAYERS $$$ HOUSING AND FEEDIND THOSE DEMONIC EVIL PSYCOPATHS!

  4. Say it with me now ladies A MAN IS NOT A PLAN&DICK IS NOT GOLD!!!! Too many women are putting their breathing dildo before their children.

  5. Beautiful boy…May your undeserving Ema and her cowardly dildo BURN IN HELL!!! There’s no need for a trial! I’d take them out back and beat them until their skull cracks and there isn’t a inch of unblackened skin left on them! Please keep us updated,Nadine. I can’t search this case from my home in Israel, but I want to know what punishment these monsters get.

    • Oh I will for sure. Gabriel is on my mind everyday, that poor angel deserves the best justice we can deliver.

      • PLEASE keep me updated on the demonic monsters who killed precious Gabriel Fernandez!! My heart goes out to his family!! 💔

    • I was fired up when I read somewhere that two of this little child’s teeth were knocked out. They are demons that hate something so innocent. That soulless creature that gave birth didn’t deserve this sweet child. I find comfort in knowing he’s with Jesus knowing he’s loved by the father. They can’t lay one finger on his precious face ever again. Let’s see what happens if they pick on another adult where they are.
      I believe those two child abuser killers will reap there evil seeds they sowed. They did this to them self.

  6. God bless this little boy Gabriel i never met but foes touched my heart. Reading about him made me cry. There are kids in my family and I would give up my life to protect them. Yet that ugly piece of garbage that gave birth to this poor baby just enjoyed the show watching him get killed. Maybe someone will kick her ass knock her teeth out break her ribs and just watch and do nothing like she did. Nothing. I hope the same thing happens to both of these dirt bags that they did to this child. Let this coward try beating some men up to death in prison see what happens. I can’t stand child killers. God loves kids. Cowardly piece of scum there’s no eight year old boys to beat to death in prison. Try beating a grown man scum bag. I hope there waiting for him. God bless Gabriel.

    • Very well said!!! I do hope my curse comes to these demons that child abuse this beautiful Angel. These two hoodrats scum bag piece of trash really get brutally beaten & torture having their jaw broken take out their eyes so they can see whats coming to them. May the boyfriend get sodomize with a sharp object! May the mother of Gabriel get the worse beating of her life for Not protecting her baby Cub!!! Lots of women are idiots they allow their loser boyfriends to brutally beat on their children. These women do not deserve the title of mothers they are Skanks Not mothers their trash hoodrats!! If I had a boyfriend who would lay a finger on my Son God have mercy on my soul for what I would do to this Man! I would tie him up beat him like drum and then pour gasoline all over his eyes face and body and lit him up as I watch smiling, I despise child killers may these two Monsters get torture shank and beaten by the Corrupt Deputy Sheriffs every second of their miserable lives!!! Cant wait till they go to prison trust me Prisoners hate child killers child rapers they shank them in the prison!
      May baby Gabriel be in the arms of his Grand Mama who really deserve the title of Mother. May they both be happy in heaven with God Angels.

  7. Excuse my language but that ho is no mother. Looks have nothing to do with it but with out make up she’s the ugliest woman i ever seen. So this who’re let that punk child killer break her eight year olds ribs i hope the same for them both maybe they will know hoe it feels to get there teeth knocked out by someone tougher then them i guess that means anyone. They beat up and killed a child maybe someone will kick there ugly ass soon. Force them to give oral sex like that ugly bitch forced that poor baby. Let’s see how tough they are with grown ups

  8. Gabriel I’m glad your with Jesus now and that useless woman and her coward boyfriend can’t lay one finger on you ever again. Rest in Jesus he’s protecting you. Vengeance is Gods.

    Those child abuser killers will most likely get beat and abused sexually just like they did to an innocent boy. They did this to them self. The boyfriend will probably get his fair share of prison rape since he enjoyed breaking teeth and ribs of a little eight year old. No one wants that for him he did it him self. Reap what you sowed child beater.

  9. I hope this WHORE gets her ass kicked teeth knocked out ribs broken break her ugly ass nose. I hope her boyfriend gets his fair share tear his ass up. I usually don’t believe in violence but i read what these as holes did. I hope nothing good for these CHILD KILLERS.

  10. Exodus 23:7 ESV / 19 helpful votes

    Keep far from a false charge, and do not kill the innocent and righteous, for I will not acquit the wicked.
    Gabriel I’m sure your much happier now with Jesus. The former things are over Eternity with the father that loves you getting the love you truly deserve SWEET BOY. GOD LESS YOU Gabriel.

  11. Words cannot express how much sadness fills my heart when I think of this poor boy. I did not know him but I cannot forget his story or his handsome little face. The thought of the two DISGUSTING NASTY WASTE OF OXYGEN piles of crap that hurt this boy makes my blood boil. O how I would love to catch a case and go to the same prison as that ugly devil b**tch and smash her head in till the maggots which reside there can escape. If only I knew him or lived close by or had any idea of what was going on… I am sorry for what you went through little guy. I hope you are resting in peace and living the afterlife that only the sweetest of angels enjoy.

  12. I am a mother of two, a beautiful little girl and boy. My heart cannot comprehend what this sweet little being endured at the hands of his own mother, the one person that should’ve loved him most.
    Like everyone, i am deeply disappointed in the system, in the community, police and ultimately his creul fate. But i was so bothered by the many comments at the end of this article, citing his newfound happiness with Jesus, where he can finally be ‘safe’. [Doubletake]. Logic begs me to ask, where the heck was ‘Jesus’ When this innocent boy was alone and being tortured, terrorized, for several months? Where was your fictional hero-Sitting up in ‘heaven’, waiting for him to slowly die a death NO ONE should ever have to see? Think to yourselves, before you insult this little boys suffering. Because that ‘hero’ was never there.
    No one was there.
    And the only peace Gabriel felt since being placed with those monsters, was in his passing. Rest in peace Gabriel, even after leaving us, you are loved by so many.

    • We live in Satan’s world. All the answers you need to know are written in the bible.
      Jesus will certainly judge every single person who has ever lived in this world. It’s a shame and it personally makes me sick to have to read another horrible thing about what that child endured. People need to take responsibility for their actions. If more people had god and his son Jesus in their lives, it would be a different place.

    • My brothers & sisters and my honorable Father understands what Gabriel went through for Us 7 children were viciously mentally brutally abused by our own biological mother!! We endure daily verbal insults with severe daily beatings and humiliations of shaving all of our female and male heads! Thats what Mommy Dearest did to us 7 children! We all felt suicidal were most of us tried several attempts to commit suicide Example my brother drank drain-o and my other brother tried to hung himself and my sister sit her veins and I took over the counter sleeping pills of extra strength ZZZzzzz. When we all fail to commit suicide we came out with a brilliant plan instead!! We decided and plan to kill the Antichrist Demon our Mommy dearest!!! We all tried to murder her but sadly the Devil protects the evil. Imagine the child abuse was so brutal that our Mommy Dearest made our child thoughts to become killer thoughts. I strongly believe all abuse children should murder their abuse parents with FIRE lock them in with a lock and enjoy their excruciating screams. At least it will be worth going to jail or a mental ward then being beaten daily. My heart goes out to Beautiful Gabriel he has the same sadness of No hope as we all did. God bless him may Gabriel have special accommodations with our good lord. I pray daily for Gabriel since the date he past, I cry every time I see his photos breaks my heart wish I knew before so I could have adopted Gabriel by bribing the crack meth head with check! She would had sold Gabriel to me…..

  13. My soul is deeply disturbed by this. I weep every time i read something new about his case. I want to hug and love him so much. Poor baby boy. I have such a desire to go rob a bank or something so i can go to jail in hopes of eventually crossing paths with this monster, who i personally would like 5 minutes alone with. Justice would be served within seconds. But i know our Lord Jesus will have his own judgment against these two demons who call themselves parents. Faith over powers everything from this point on.

  14. I burst in cry everytime I think about his boy and the drama he endured until he finally died. I can’t understand how so called “parents” or adults in charge can do that to a child. I can’t either understand why noone in the family or the social services ever did something to save him. This little man died because he was to become gay and his macho step father and “mother” couldn’t stand it. I guess you have all religious beliefs, I don’t. Praying won’t change a thing, what is done is done, Gabriel is dead for nothing because of hate, brutality, disinterest…
    I am gay too, and this could have happenened to any of us. I wish I had a child to love him and take care of him. I wish I could have adopter Gabriel and save him from this horror, give him a home, a shelter, some good care and genuine love as a father.
    I am living in Paris, far from California, but this drama shocked me and make me cry everyday and being so sad.
    If God existed, do you think He would have allowed it? There is no God, unfortunatly, to save the innocents from bullying and death.
    One last word to Gabriel: my dear boy, I will never forget you for the rest of my life. I love you and wish I was there to be a daddy for you. I love you.

  15. Very sad for Gabriel that he had no one to stop these animals that abused him I hope they get what’s coming to them

  16. This nasty people should be charge all the way!!

  17. 60 years in prison = 60 years of demonic torture from inmates!!! great way to age and to learn from your stupid and idiotic mistake of neglecting this child

  18. Let them die!!!

  19. Where was this child’s father when all this was going on

  20. Sorry beautiful angel we all failed you. I know that you are next to God (I want to believe that) I am soooo sad . Hope this system change and you death was not in vain

  21. I hope this Whore, has had her ass kicked while in jail and when she gets to prison, I hope and pray that the same treatment she gave little Gabiel, they impose on her. I am not a violent person, but when it involved little children, than I am the meanest sone of a bitch on earth, and as for that drug addict fat Bastard, I also hope and pray he gets the treatment he gave little Gabriel. I am in tears as I read and read how this little boy died and he didn’t have to had the damn Social Workers were doing their job. The Bitch mother only wanted him back to receive the welfare payments. how else was the bitch and her Bastard boyfriend going to survive? If I could I would castrate that Son of a Bitch and feed his balls to a dog, he doesn’t need them, he’s not a man. I hope they both burn in Hell!!! RIP you brave little boy, you are thought of and loved.

  22. Justice for baby BRIANNA in New Mexico ,too put these people ,sorry Animals away,,

  23. PUT ALL THESE Animals Away

  24. This story should be proof there is no god. Just thinking about this poor child makes tear up every time, I have no doubt we are here to look after each other and in this case it is obvious no one looked after Gabriel. Including his extended family, it would have taken 1 instance maybe 2 of noticeable abuse for me as a grandparent an uncle, etc… to storm into that apartment and pull this child out. I get social services and their failures and agree with punishment, but as humans it is easy to blame others to make yourself feel better about your failure or your fear to step up. Again everyone bears some responsibility in this child’s demise and I think it is far too easy to let the family off the hook as victims and not hold them responsible as well.

    • I feel the same. Why on earth did those relatives not intervene??? As a grandmother I would have noticed right away and taken that child away even if it meant facing criminal charges myself for going against a court decision. I would have intervened. I hold all of this little guy’s family responsible as well. I want to believe that Gabriel is in heaven now and in peace. I hope these demons who committed these heinous crimes against this innocent child pay everyday for what they did during their incarceration. I do not condone violence but these 2 deserve the same torture that they inflicted on this poor baby.

    • Yes, there is a God, always has been always will be…You need to read the entire article for you to understand the sequence of events regarding Gabriel. There are several individuals, aside from his mother and boyfriend who should be helf accountable for his death. That is, the CPS counselors who neglected to investigate the 60 abuse reports filed eon behalf of Gabriel; it is obvious those ignorant Bastards were intrested in one thing only, and that is a pay check, and to Hell with the children they were being paid to protect. The police that went to the home who summoned, should have notices his bruised face and at talked, in private, to the child, to find out what was going on, as police officers, they are trained to take notice of such things.

  25. Gabriel, our little angel, I am sorry I wasn’t there to help you, you have changed my life, and I promise you that I will not let another case of a torture child happen again. I promise you Gabriel that when I go into the field of social work I will not let history repeat itself. I love you deeply and I wish I could turn time around and I would be telling you this personally. You will never be forgotten Gabriel, I promise. Love you Gabriel always and forever.

  26. FEEL SAD THAT BABY GABRIEL HAD TO SUFFER SO MUCH BEFORE HE DIED, MAY GOD NOT BE THERE FOR THESE TRASH GANG MEMBERS!
    MY HEART GOES TO GABRIEL WONDERFUL HOME LOVING GRANDPARENTS! MAY THE GRANDPA HANG IN. BELIEVE THAT YOUR BELOVED WIFEY IS HOLDING ON TO HER GRANDCHILD GABRIEL. MAY THE LORD BE WITH THE KIND FAMILY OF GABRIEL FERNANDEZ.

  27. This is the saddest story i have ever read in my life. it is beyond horrible that an innocent little child could be treated this way. i am raising my 8 year old granddaughter and would never allow her to go live with her mother or her father. i would fight to my death for her. i’m not sure why the grandparents allowed this without a court order. maybe lack of funds to obtain a lawyer, or simply didn’t know that they could. i’m not here to judge them but to incourage anyone that even thinks a child is be abused to report it, and then fellow up on it !! find out what was done and why. don’t let it rest and assume that social services is taken care up. most likely they aren’t reach out and save any child in danger. it really does take a village to raise a child healthy and whole.

    • It doesn’t take a village to raise the child of loving parents or guardians. It takes a village to raise the child of abusive/drug addicted parents/f buddies of children with no hope. That’s when you need to village.

  28. Just FYI… 4 social workers have been charged in this case for falsifying reports and etc… http://ktla.com/2016/04/07/4-social-workers-charged-in-beating-death-of-8-year-old-gabriel-fernandez-l-a-county-da/

  29. I would gladly love to beat those monsters to death..My mom had a boyfriend who was abusive.The day he fucked up.Is when.I walked in and gave him the beaten of a lifetime..I would love to catch these 2…and other worthless pieces of shit..A baseball bat a 12 pack.IT’S ON!

  30. Those a**holes in child services, I hope they lost their jobs and get sued by the grandparents. 60 calls of abuse has to be some kind of sick record. How many do they need? This wasn’t a “slip through the cracks” case, this was criminal incompetence. The blood of that poor child is on their hands.

  31. I’m just speechless for a ten year old girl who was also abused once then loved Again. Rest in peace baby Gabriel also when u die do u stay the same age be cuz he would be 11 now cuz I was born in 2006 he was in 2005

  32. Was in law 30 years. Grandparents should have been allowed to be guardians. But burden of proving mother incapable is upon the court and that is difficult. Mother wanted son back for benefits. Statutes must be enacted where parents/guardians who receive benefits for children are required to appear with children for review/visual inspection of children prior to each benefit payment they receive. Parents who receive benefits must be weekly drug tested. Test positive? No benefits. Children then put in care of well run and safe community homes staffed by college students studying to be doctors, nurses, social workers, psychiatrists, elementary teachers and retirees (back ground checks and many, many cameras in place and no lone carer contact all open spaces) in order to protect our most vulnerable…..our nation’s infants and children. My heart hurts for Gabriel and his teacher, Mrs. Garcia, who tried so hard to protect this precious boy.

  33. We are all mandated reporters when out in the community pay attention to how children look and act if in doubt call authorities your call could save a childs life.

  34. This is horrible. Cps should be held accountable and locked up just like the mother. It is just as much their fault as it is hers. I have read a lot of stories about children being murdered from abuse and in EVERY SINGLE ONE of them cps was notified before the murder happened and yet did nothing to prevent it from happening.

  35. This is such a horrific story. Mother and boyfriend, the social workers and anyone else that didn’t raise a finger to help this boy and his siblings. YES, CPS is overwhelmed and the case sizes are too many,. That does not excuse anything like this from happening. You have to have common sense and trust your gut and give a shit about your job. If you cant do that then they should not be working in that industry. They should be stripped of any credentials they have for human services and NEVER EVER be allowed to work with or for human life EVER again. As for that Mother and her BF………..PRISON for life. This is so disturbing and disgusting. RIP little man. RIP ❤
