    This article is a must-read, even though you will be in tears and :furious: by the time you're done. Thank you, PastTense, for starting a thread for this beautiful little boy, who everyone knew as Pepe....

    The mother’s account

    Cisneros was washing dishes when she heard the children crying upstairs. She said she rushed upstairs and went into a bedroom to see Gutierrez throwing Pepe against the wall. There was a large hole in the drywall. She said Gutierrez was trying to choke Pepe, according to the affidavit.

    Cisneros told Gutierrez that he was killing Pepe, she said, but he wouldn’t stop. She placed her 1-month-old son on top of Pepe to keep Gutierrez from assaulting him further. But that didn’t work, according to court documents. It’s unclear if the 1-month-old was injured.

    Gutierrez stopped when it appeared Pepe was no longer breathing, court records said. Cisneros suffered injuries to her leg and neck, and a possible broken arm during the assault, police said.

    The 9-year-old girl told police she was upstairs with her brother watching a movie when he started crying because he didn’t want to watch that movie. Pepe went into Gutierrez’s bedroom. Gutierrez became enraged by the boy’s crying, she said, and tried to pull him into the room, the affidavit said. The girl said Gutierrez hated Pepe.

    Gutierrez told police that he doesn’t remember assaulting Pepe. He said he remembered going out to dinner with the family earlier that evening. After that, he was being handcuffed by police. Gutierrez said he has blacked out in the past from anger, the affidavit said.
    [...]

    He is set to be arraigned June 3.

    The Battle Ground Police Department and the Clark County Sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit are continuing an investigation into the incident.

    BBM1: Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot!!!! Who placed a one month old infant into harm's way like that?

    (ETA: BIUBM: I'm also wondering if the one month old is biologically related to the murderer (and Pepe was not), and if that was part of the entire DV dynamic that was going on? In addition to the stressor of the daily life of raising Pepe? Not that there is ANY excuse! That said, it is still BEYOND the pale that a baby was used as a human shield. I'm trying to understand the thought process of using a one month old to "calm the beast" especially one in a murderous rage."

    There's NO excuse for it, regardless! I can't imagine any parent doing something like that. Depending on development, some infants at that age can barely hold their heads up!

    BBM2: Ugh, how many times have we heard this one? The article mentions a previous attempted murder charge, and a history of DV (his past victim was in a coma and on sa ventilator FCOL!). To say Gutierrez has "anger management issues" is the understatement of the Millenium. He had no business around any children (much less Pepe, OR an infant).

    Both require patience and loving attention at all times! I implore my fellow WSers to read PastTense's linked article above. It describes Pepe's recent positive strides in his life.

    Memorial for Pepe linked by The Columbian's YouTube Channel



    Look at this smile! I can't believe he's gone - forever. What's worse is how he suffered SO tremendously. It is cases like these that tear me apart. As a DV survivor, they bring trigger emotions I try to keep buried deep inside. :(

    If / when the Probable Cause documents are released, then we will know more (and our hearts will break further). I just hope I am wrong. Our children deserve to grow up in a safe place.

    The fire is lit for me, and I will not rest until this beautiful little boy's voice is heard...

    Hayes said it&#8217;s likely an assault charge will also be filed against Gutierrez in this case. He asked Stahnke to set Gutierrez&#8217;s bail at $1 million.


    Gutierrez&#8217;s court-appointed defense attorney, Ed Dunkerly, said that bail amount is unreasonable.


    &#8220;I also don&#8217;t think that&#8217;s reasonable,&#8221; Stahnke said. &#8220;I&#8217;ll set it at $1.5 million.&#8221;


    Stahnke ordered that Gutierrez is not to have contact with his girlfriend or her other children.


    He is set to be arraigned June 3.

    I like this judge. Just sayin. Defense attorney whines and says the bail is unreasonable. Judge agrees and raises it.

    Absolutely devastating. I live very near this small community, and to say that hearts are broken over this sweet boy is an understatement.

    Thank you for the update OkieGranny :heart:

    I'm disheartened to know that an insanity defense is being prepared in this case :cow:

    Every time I look at Pepe's picture, with his beaming smile, I have a physical reaction, knowing he will never smile like that again on this earth, in THIS life! It is infuriating!

    The adjudication process will now be drawn out even further. Once again, the rights of the defendant outweigh that of the victim. It is up to The State, and #WeThePeople, to ensure this little boy's voice is heard!

    I know I sound like a broken record, but it's a fact: our laws must be changed. All victims (especially child victims) deserve to have a Bill of Rights on the books (or better yet, Constitutionally Guaranteed), that insures they are protected throughout the legal process.

    Until this happens, the scales are not balanced - far from it. :moo:

    not enough years, since he'll be out in under 20, easy. EVERYONE needs to read this boy's story IMO. I am so sad that we failed this little boy... as a society, as a culture that thinks violence is ok...

    Yeah, no wonder he wanted a bench trial.
