    TX - Anna Gonzalez, 4, dies of head trauma, Fort Worth, 14 Oct 1991

    November 2014:

    Fort Worth police cracked a murder case more than two decades old this week when they arrested Juanita Gonzalez, 48, for the death of her stepdaughter.

    Police re-opened the investigation into the 1991 death of 4-year-old Anna Gonzalez after a relative inquired about her death earlier this year.

    The child, Anna Marie Gonzalez, 4, was living with her father when his wife called for an ambulance on the afternoon of Oct. 14, 1991, saying she had found Anna unconscious in the bathtub, face down in about a foot of water.

    An autopsy by the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office determined that the child had not drowned but died from head injuries. Her death was ruled a homicide.

    The main suspect, Anna’s stepmother, Juanita Gonzalez, was never arrested.

    Now an adult with children of her own, [Anna's sister, Mary] Champlain decided to reach out to the Fort Worth police cold case unit to push for justice in a case long forgotten.

    “I have a 5-year-old little girl. About the time my girl was 3, almost 4, I really started thinking about it,” Champlain said. “What would happen if someone did that to her and if nobody ever did anything – it just slipped through the cracks?”

    Good for the sister and kudos to LE for wrapping up this very solvable case.
