Gabriel Fernandez Biography, Age, Height, Death, Wikipedia

The judicial case for the murder of the child Gabriel Fernandez at the hands of his own mother and stepfather. It’s a case from back in 2013 traumatized Los Angeles completely and even caused outrage in the community and questioned the child protection authorities presented in a Netflix documentary. Under the title “The trials of Gabriel Fernandez” the documentary depicted the judicial cases carried out in the Superior Court of Los Angeles County against the mother of the child, Pearl Fernandez, his stepfather Isauro Aguirre, and four employees of the Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS): Stefanie Rodríguez, Patricia Clement, Kevin Bom and Gregory Merritt.

Who was Gabriel Fernandez?

Gabriel Fernandez was born on 21st February 2005 and he was just like a sweet child that wanted to be useful and sought the love of his family. It can be seen from all interviews and reports that before moving with his mother, Pearl Fernandez and her boyfriend, Isauro Aguirre, and two brothers in Palmdale, located north of Los Angeles, Gabriel was dragged into the homes of his relatives. As the documentary describes it, Gabriel lived with an uncle and his partner for a while, and also lived with his grandparents before moving to live with his mother.

The images of his time with his uncles show a seemingly happy and healthy child. However, Gabriel’s well-being took a radical turn in 2012, when Pearl Fernandez reportedly welcomed him to obtain welfare benefits, despite his family’s concerns that she was negligent with her other children. After joining his mother and Aguirre, Gabriel arrived at a new school. Shortly after starting there, her teacher, Jennifer Garcia, felt that things were not right at home.

Garcia, who appears throughout the six-part series, says that a couple of weeks after he started in her classroom, Gabriel asked: “Is it normal for mothers to beat their children?” When she pressed him, Gabriel asked if it was normal to be hit with a belt buckle. “Is it normal for you to bleed?” he asked, according to Garcia.

Gabriel Fernandez Cause of Death:

The boy Gabriel Fernandez was just 8 years old when he found dead on 24th May 24 2013 due to inflicted injuries he suffered when he was tortured, including a fractured skull, broken ribs and cigarette burns all over his body. During the court hearings against the defendants some of the most shameful and brutal facts revealed regarding how a boy was the victim of a horrific list of physical abuse, in addition to being forced to eat his own vomit.

The case sparked a debate about the effectiveness of the child protection system in California that they would not have done enough to avoid the obvious damage they were suffering. The accusation against the social workers was for falsification of public documents to try to erase their responsibility and negligence that led to the death of the child who lived in the community of Palmdale, in northern Los Angeles County. The stepfather, Isauro Aguirre, was sentenced to death while the mother, Pearl Fernandez, received life imprisonment in the separate trials they had in 2017.

  1. I feel so bad for him because he was only 8yrs old why did he have to pass away I wish he was still alive if he was my son I would never do that to him even if I didn’t want him I would never do that and I would never hate my kid even if I did I would never torture him I hate pearl Fernandez and the boyfriend

  2. i just watched his show on Netflix it broke my heart and i feel so bad he was an innocent child he did nothing wrong and his ¨mom¨ went thru sum thing so bad and them does that to her youngest child is just sickening bc this happens all the time and he isn´t the only kid and stuff barely change and the fact that rn im at home safe and love while other kids are dying and get mentaly and physicly abused really hurts me that soooo many people could have helped him could have saved him the fact that he could still be alive hurts soo much that people who could have saved him didnt and thats the world we are living in it makes no sense how a mother could even do that to her on son i just hope his REAL family that actually cared about him move on and that Gabriel rest in piece up in heaven where i know he is

  3. I couldn’t watch all of this, it make me sick down to my heart. Why didn’t all these people from welfare, social worker teachers saw that there were something wrong? And why didn’t they have done anything. No interests in the kid? They failed! What kind of a human is the mother? She shall celebrate her being in hell, so her boyfriend. What kind of shady deal. Only to get maintance money.??? But where was the love for her child.
    She gave him Away from the start, she shouldn’t have gotten him back.
    No one can imagine how much this child suffered. No help from others, left alone, you all out there who saw, knew that something went totally wrong, have to live for your lifetime with your guilt.
