California agency documents show pattern missed — Mother and her boyfriend charged. Pearl Fernandez, and her boyfriend, Isauro Aguirre, are now each held on no bail. Aguirre told cops he hit the boy at least 10 times the day of his death for lying and ‘being dirty.’ Sex abuse also alleged.
Shocking just-released official documents show that the day California boy Gabriel Fernandez died — at age 8 — he had a fractured skull, three broken ribs, BB pellets embedded in his chest and groin, cigarette burns on his skin and teeth knocked out of his mouth.
The newly revealed Department of Children and Family Services documents show a broad pattern of horrifying child abuse missed by the system until the Palmdale boy was finally killed last month.
