    The Charley Project gives a lot more information on the circumstances of Andre's mother Monique's shopping trip with these two unknown women. Based on what Monique allegedly told her sister-in-law about the women using a fraudulent credit cards to make the purchases, could these women have killed Monique to steal her identity or because she may have tried to talk them into turning themselves in for fraud? If so, where's Andre?

    It's probably more likely, however, that Andre was the target all along and that the shopping trips were just a ploy to get him from his mother and when she resisted, they killed her and took Andre.

    Brooklyn father thinks baby-selling ring snatched his infant

    BROOKLYN (PIX11) - Timothy Bryant turned 49 years old this year and he’s carried deep sadness in his heart for half of that life.

    “What would you expect, if a guy snatched your child?” Bryant asked PIX 11.

    The baby-snatching is only part of the story.

    Andre is probably being raised by the woman who killed his mother to have him. Can you imagine the psychological trauma that will sequel if this case is ever solved? Jesus.

    I hope it is solved, though. Andre's mother and father had two other sons together. The father and sons deserve truth, justice and peace!

    I hope Andre is still alive, becomes very suspicious of his true identity, and comes across his baby pic from 1989! I hope he becomes stunned by the resemblance and contacts the NCMEC. I hope his abductor/mother's killer PAYS for the unfathomable pain that she has brought on this family.

    Please let there be a miracle.

    Here's a 1989 article: http://www.nytimes.com/1989/04/05/ny...y-expands.html

    I did find another old article about the case and Monique's sister-in-law Pat Bryant (who babysat the other two kids while she took Andre shopping) stated that she thought Monique mentioned knowing one of the two women from back in middle school, but that she never gave a specific name. I believe her mother was also quoted as saying that Monique was not streetwise in any sense of the word. Some people are just very trusting and naive. It's sad that she died for it and had her son kidnapped.

    Although I believe that Andre's case is likely connected to Shane Walker and Christopher Dansby, I can't help but feeling that Andre's case was by far the most preventable. If Monique told her sister-in-law that these women had bought her clothes with fake credit cards, how did she not know that was illegal? Doesn't "fake credit card" speak for itself? Then she went to do more shopping the next day, presumably with more phony credit cards and gave into the women's insistence that she take her baby with them. Basically, she was bringing her child with her to commit a crime. Although, I think we can all agree that while her getting caught and arrested with her baby in tow would have been terrible, it would have been far more preferable than what ultimately happened.

    NY - Andre Rivera, 6 wks, mother found murdered, Bronx, 30 March 1989

    1989 cold case of murdered mom, missing baby spurs sister to ignore danger



    Simone Rivera has not given up on discovering what happened when her sister disappeared along with her son more than 28 years ago.

    For the last few months, Rivera has been pushing hard to get her sister’s murder case re-opened by the NYPD, and she’s succeeded.
    The body of 22-year-old Monique Rivera, a mother of three sons, was found by a jogger on City Island in the Bronx, on March 30, 1989.

    Monique had left her home about 20 miles from there in Bushwick the day before with her 6-week old son Andre – who vanished for good.

    “I can’t let this go, until my sister rests,” Simone Rivera told PIX11.

    Regarding the incident on Monday, Rivera said she was not sure if someone was trying to scare her for getting her sister’s case reopened.
    “Whatever it is, I’m not gonna stop,” Rivera told PIX 11.

    Brooklyn father thinks baby-selling ring snatched his infant

    Back on March 28, 1989, Monique Rivera was walking with her three sons in Bushwick, when she encountered two women driving a burgundy, Pontiac Grand Am with Maryland plates. One of the women was about 22 years old and had red hair. The other woman was about 30.

    The two women struck up a conversation with the young mother and took her shopping.

    The next day, March 29, 1989, the women called Monique Rivera at her apartment and asked her to take the six-week old baby, Andre, to go shopping with them again. Timothy Bryant’s sister, Patricia, babysat for the two, older boys—Timmy, then seven, and Thomas, nearly five.
    “My son-in-law called me that night asking me if Monique was here,” recalled Rosemary Rivera at her Brooklyn home. “I said ‘Monique?! What would she be doing here at 10 o’clock at night?’”

    The following day, a jogger on City Island found a young woman’s body in the woods on City Island, in the Bronx. After several days, Timothy Bryant identified the victim as Monique.
    “She had blunt trauma to the head, and it looked like they had used a scarf around her neck,” said Bryant.
    There was no sign of Andre, and his fate remains a mystery to his family all these years later. His apparent kidnapping happened the same year that two, African-American children were snatched from the same park in Harlem…..three months apart. There was suspicion at the time the children were victims of a baby-selling ring.

    Relatives said Ms. Rivera and her three sons had gone shopping with at least one of the women on March 28. On that trip the woman bought Ms. Rivera an outfit at a store called Canadians, said Eva Bryant, Mr. Bryant's sister.

    The police confirmed that a pair of gold slacks and a black blouse had been purchased for Ms. Rivera, but said it was unclear where they had been bought, although they were in a plastic bag from Canadians.

    Ms. Bryant said one of her sisters told her that the woman seemed especially interested in Andre on March 28. ''She kept saying, 'Let me see the baby. Let me hold the baby,' '' Ms. Bryant said. 'I Just Don't Understand It'

    Ms. Bryant, who said that the woman told Ms. Rivera that they would go shopping ''up in White Plains'' on March 29, said she found the circumstances of the trips strange.

    ''Monique had her own money to buy clothes,'' Ms. Bryant said.

    Mr. Bryant said he had been upset with his wife when she showed him the new outfit on March 28. ''I didn't think it was right,'' he said, sitting on a couch in his apartment and staring sadly at a stack of pictures of his wife and his youngest son. ''I didn't think it was right, because nobody gives you anything for nothing.''

    Two toddlers were snatched in 1989--three months apart, from the same Harlem park--and there was talk that a baby-selling ring may be taking children. But Simone Rivera doesn't think her nephew was sold on the black market.

    "I think it's something personal," Rivera said "They know us. It's no stranger."

    This is an awful article. Disrespectful to the family, doesn't explain any details of the actual case, and even gets Andre's last name wrong. Ugh.
    Charley Project link for this case: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/bryant_andre.html

    Also, he has a thread already on here: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...-29-March-1989 Although I can understand why a search wouldn't have brought this information up, since they got his name wrong.

    Thank you, I searched for a thread and was baffled that I couldn't find it.
