NY - Jason Guallpa, 5, home alone, dies in fire, Queens, 21 Feb 2008
5-year-old boy home alone dies in Queens fire; brother is charged
10:27 PM EST, February 21, 2008
NEW YORK - A 5-year-old boy left alone by his 24-year-old brother was killed Thursday morning when a two-alarm fire engulfed the family's apartment and two floors of a Corona apartment building.
Police arrested the older brother, Diego Guallpa, charging him with endangering the welfare of a child. He was supposed to baby-sit the boy, Jason, but instead, police sources said, had gone out to do his taxes.
Firefighters found Jason in his family's first-floor apartment, wedged between a wall and TV, under debris, New York Fire Department officials said.

Awwww, how sad!
I cannot imagine why a 24yo would do that?! WTH?! Like his taxes were more important than the child?! He knew better than to leave that child alone."WE SEEK FOR THE TRUTH. WE SEEK JUSTICE.
THE COURTS REQUIRE IT. THE VICTIMS CRY FOR IT
AND GOD DEMANDS IT!"
