    NC - Violet Cortez, 18 mos, beaten to death, Fayetteville, 29 Jan 2015 *Arrests*

    May 20, 2015: FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- A Fayetteville couple charged with murdering the mother's 18-month-old child was arrested Wednesday evening in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

    Authorities were searching for Vanessa Sanchez, 20, and her fiance 21-year-old Andrew Tyler Tomczak of 528 Lambert Street. Both are facing first-degree murder and child abuse inflicting serious injury charges in the death of 18-month-old Violet Cortez.

    An autopsy from the North Carolina Office of the Chief Medical Examiner released Tuesday shows the baby died of "non-accidental head injuries January 29.

    At the time, Fayetteville authorities said her parents called 911 after she was found unresponsive in the couple's Haymount apartment.

    The autopsy report obtained by ABC 11 this week shows the 18-month-old child was brutally assaulted, and died of a head injury due to multiple blunt force impacts. She suffered from severe bleeding, and the report also indicates the baby's private parts were cut and bruised.

    ......."cut and bruised"........

    no excuses for that at all -- that poor baby.....and what is most unfortunate is that the father's family would have happily taken her given that the mother did not want the responsibility.

    I was able to capture the following images from the same video, but almost wish I hadn't.
    She suffered tremendously.


    The world NEEDS TO KNOW what her own mother and the boyfriend did to her (or allowed to be done to her). To hurt a baby this way is evil and monstrous.

    I am beside myself at the moment. My heart is literally racing, and aching at the same time.
    I moved Heaven and earth to save my girls from our monster. Then, I chose to stay alone in order to NEVER make that mistake again.

    NO ONE should ever be more important than your child(ren)! If you can't be bothered to love them, you don't deserve to be have them, and carry the title of "Mom." I'm certain there would've been SO many loving families (not to mention childless couples) who would have given anything for a BabyGirl like Violet! Just look at her picture!

    There is no penalty severe enough for these two I will say that I'm beyond thankful they're in custody. I'm off to research this case - even though I know it will crush my soul. I hear whispers of Baby Ellorah, and Little Omaree.

    She was only 18 months old. Think about that. She hadn't lived to see the earth revolve around the sun twice (barely one and a half times). At that young of an age - just a toddler - all she wanted was to be loved...

    Rant over....

    Fayetteville couple accused of killing their toddler Violet Cortez arrested | Daily Mail Online


    [...]
    Violet's distraught aunt, Alcelyn Cortez, revealed to ABC11 that Sanchez had told them she didn't want the little girl - but never handed Violet back to her father's family.

    'We were begging for her to come to us. If she didn't want her, she didn't have to have her. Her mentality was she didn't want her but she didn't want my brother to have her,' she said.

    NC - Violet Cortez (18mo) Murdered 29Jan15 *ARRESTS*

    UPDATE: North Carolina couple arrested in El Paso County on murder charges
    [...]


    According to a 911 phone call in January, Sanchez found her daughter unresponsive in the home she shared with her fiance in North Carolina.
    "My daughter. We came in here to check on her. We found her on the floor and she doesn't look like she is breathing," said Sanchez in the call.
    Sanchez was questioned by police in North Carolina and released.
    [...]
    Craig Barron had rented the couple a room for two months. He said Sanchez showed him pictures of Violet and told him the 18-month-old died in Texas.
    Barron said he even took Sanchez to a group counseling session for parents who lost children.

    "I am thinking that probably her guilty conscience caught up with her," said Barron.
    Barron said he never suspected the two were fugitives on the run. But he said looking back, there were subtle signs. He said Tomczak was nervous around police.
    "I think he had a feeling that this was going to catch up with him. I am a firm believer in karma. What goes around comes around. You think you can run to another state but it's going to catch up to you, especially a murder rap," said Barron.
    Barron was home when police knocked on the door. He said Tomczak told him not to open it, but he did. He said deputies were surrounding the apartment with their guns drawn. He was shocked to find out the two were taken into custody and accused of killing Violet.
    [...]
    The couple are scheduled to be advised by a judge at 1:30 p.m. at the El Paso County Criminal Justice center. During the advisement, the judge is expected to discuss plans to extradite the couple to North Carolina.

    Thanks, Kimi, for starting this thread...

    The pictures of her that I have seen show that she looks physically healthy -- pink, "fat" little arms & legs, etc. I didn't see that many smiles, but that may not mean anything...

    What did they do?? Just bash her head until it was unrecognizable?

    I live about 60 miles from Fayetteville, and I had seen this in a small article a little while ago.

    Here's a local MSM article, and I apologize if it is a repeat:


    Local News

    Autopsy: Fayetteville toddler died of 'non-accidental' head injury


    Fayetteville, N.C. — A Fayetteville toddler who died in January had severe head injuries and earlier injuries on her body that had healed, prompting authorities to charge her mother and her mother's fiancé on Wednesday with murder.

    This article includes a "REPORT OF EXAMINATION BY MEDICAL EXAMINER," so let me say:

    ===> WARNING - GRAPHIC LANGUAGE <===

    It is not an autopsy, and it does not include drawings or pics, etc., and it is not really all that graphic. It seems to be some sort of preliminary report -- no details at all.

    Oh, yes, my sweet Kimi, we do have the Death Penalty here in NC. I will cite two. There was the case of Shaniya Davis, 5 years old. She was the prettiest little 5 year old I have ever seen (pictures of course) in my life. Period. Her convicted murderer, Mario McNeill, was sentenced to Death in May, 2013.. This case was also in Cumberland County which is where Violet's case will be tried. A good, solid, tuff D.A. and a good judge.

    More recently, in another NC county, was the case of Teghan Skiba. The jury convicted Jonathan Richardson of murder, torture, etc., etc., in April, 2014 (he was 24 years old). He, too, sits on Death Row at this moment. This case was the absolute worst case I have seen -- EVER. She was tortured by her mother's boyfriend for 5 or 6 days. Unbelievable. Her mother was out of state on summer camp with her Nat'l Guard (or Army Reserve) group. Her ~mother~ was gone for two weeks, so he just had a good ol' time.

    Violet's case is similar, IMO, to the two horrors above, so we'll see. Do not fret.

    You may be familiar with one or both of those cases I cited above. Anyway, here are WS links.

    I'm glad there are still some states that throw the library at baby killers. Today, we saw an old case in VA (1998) where a girl killed her twins she gave birth to in college and she threw their precious bodies down a laundry chute. For years, the sheriff searched for the mother of these babies. He even took flowers to their graves, after making sure they had a proper burial. Her sentence? 8 YEARS...8 YEARS for two newborns...smdh.

    NC - Violet Cortez (18mo) Murdered 29Jan15 *ARRESTS*

    I remember Shaniya's case - but lost track of the status. The link you posted was for thread #1 ( for caring so much borndem ) and I went searching.

    I found the most recent thread:

    NC - Shaniya Davis 5, Antoniette Davis pleaded guilty to 2nd Degree murder!

    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=224483



    ETA: I appreciate everyone who is posting, and reading this thread. I'll be honest, I know cases like Violet's (and Baby Ellorah's, and the list goes into the abyss....) aren't for everyone. But I expected the outrage to be so great, that this thread would have exploded with posts by now.

    Thank you for listening to me scream at the top of my digital lungs for justice.
