The thing [Stephanie Lopez]that gave birth to innocent little baby Brianna will be released from prison in a few weeks so I wanted everyone to remember what she did to her child.

Brianna Mariah Lopez was tortured every day of her 5-month-old life and then she was murdered. Her mother Stephanie Lopez, father Andrew Walters and Uncle Steven Lopez



The autopsy concluded that Baby Brianna died from cranial cerebral injuries. She suffered 13 human bite marks throughout her entire body, bruising and scraping injuries throughout her hebbad, as well as on her upper forehead. She suffered a blunt force injury to her head in the last three days or less of her life which resulted in a large subdural hematoma on her brain. Baby Brianna had bleeding within the membranes around the brains, as well as around her optical nerves which meant that she had been violently shaken. Additionally, she had a significant abrasion on her buttocks which went into the buttocks and was consistent with sexual assault. The baby’s anus has no muscle tone and gaped open, at her autopsy, it was observed that her anal opening was dilated a full inch. The internal examination showed a half-inch injury inside the anal opening as well as significant vaginal trauma to the labia minor, and three tears to her hyman. Brianna’s skull had 5-7 day old fractures in two places, on two different bones. Both old and new blood were present, indicating a previous injury to the brain. Brianna had two rib fractures that were weeks old, bucket handle fractures on both thigh bones, and a fracture of her left arm.

“Baby Brianna” (February 14, 2002 – July 19, 2002)

Brianna Lopez who is also known to many as “Baby Brianna”, was a baby girl who was born in a New Mexico hospital on Valentines Day, 2002 to her mother, Stephanie Lopez and her father, Andy Walters. She would have turned eleven years old on February 14, 2013 but sadly, she never made it.

When Baby Brianna left the hospital after her birth she moved into a home in Las Cruces, N.M. shared by her parents and Uncle, Steven Lopez.

The abuse started almost immediately. Instead of hugs and kisses Brianna received slaps and pinches. She was tormented on a daily basis, both verbally and physically. Slapped, kicked, punched, pinched, thrown, raped, etc. You name it this infant endured it.

When Brianna would cry at the pain that was inflicted on her, her abusers would laugh and stuff her mouth with clothing to muffle her screams. Her own mother would bite and pinch her when she got frustrated by the crying, but for the most part it was the infant’s father and uncle who tormented her while Stephanie sat back and ignored her daughter’s cries.


Baby Brianna was what many would consider a strong baby because she managed to survive 153 days despite coming into this cruel world weighing only several pounds.19278_102102099819498_1000005912460

On the evening of July 18th, 2002 Andy went out to purchase beer and when he came home they all proceeded to get drunk. Stephanie claimed to have had only a few beers before heading to bed in the same room the others were in. During this time both Andy and Steven decided to play their own sick, demented game where they would toss Brianna up in the air, let her hit the ceiling and watch her tumble to the ground. They would later tell authorities that Brianna was screaming and wailing when this was happening. Apparently the baby’s mother didn’t hear her daughter screaming and crying in agony.

Early the next morning on July 19, 2002 at approximately 7:15a.m. Stephanie awoke to Brianna crying and noticed fresh bruises on her and asked the others what happened. They told her that they may have been “a little to rough with her last night”. She accepted their answer and ignored her child’s injuries.

That same morning Stephanie noticed Brianna needed a diaper change and Andy volunteered to do it. During the diaper change he wrapped a baby wipe around his finger and inserted it into Brianna’s anus. He also sodomized her with foreign objects. When Stephanie noticed Brianna near death she ignored it and decided to wait several hours before calling an ambulance. When she did find the time to call them, she lied and told them her daughter had fallen from her high chair. Apparently she was delusional enough to think authorities would buy that story.

Brianna was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead at 11:10AM. She was just 5 months and 5 days old.movie_0001-010_00122910

The first officer to see baby Brianna in the hospital was Detective Lindell Wright. He remembers one thought going through his mind: “I’ve got a lot to do.”

“Literally bruised from head to toe, from the top of her head all throughout her body all the way to the big toe on her right foot.” said Governor Susana Martinez who prosecuted Brianna’s family.

movie_0001-007_00117353-1They took sadistic joy out of torturing this infant. Not one family member cared about her, not one of them attempted to protect her and there’s zero proof to suggest she was ever shown love in her short life. She was there for their own sadistic amusement.

When police searched the home they couldn’t find one toy or even a photo of Brianna laughing or smiling. No evidence to indicate she enjoyed one moment of her life.

Many relatives including Brianna’s grandparents knew what was occurring but ignored it. They knew their granddaughter was being raped by both her father and uncle, they knew she had pinch marks from head to toe in different stages of healing, they knew she was being tormented and had marks, cuts and lacerations but they turned a blind eye and let it continue for five, going on six more months until baby Brianna’s little body couldn’t handle the abuse any longer.

Officer Wright has seen a lot during his career but Brianna’s case will haunt him for life.

“I cried my eyes out. It will stay with me for the rest of my life. It tests you to the point you’re not sure you can speak,””You’re afraid that the emotion will take over.” said Wright.

At the time Brianna was murdered a person who committed intentional child abuse resulting in death faced a maximum of 18 years in prison.

“Eighteen years for the life of a child?” State Sen. Mary Jane Garcia of Do Ana said. “I thought it was absurd.”

It took three years of trying and in 2005, Senate Bill 166, also known as the “Baby Brianna Bill” was officially signed into law by Governor Bill Richardson. The bill made child abuse, which results in death, a first degree felony in New Mexico and set the mandatory minimum sentence at 30 years in prison.

Three relatives, including her grandparents, were sentenced to 30 days in jail for failing to report the abuse. The maximum is one year.

Stephanie Lopez was convicted of negligent child abuse after she failed to do anything to help her child. The New Mexico Corrections Department said that she could be released as early as September 28, 2016. Less than 15 for her daughter’s torture death. The New Mexico State Parole Board said that it’s almost certain that she’ll be released, provided that she finds a suitable home and can meet the requirements of her release conditions.

The public was outraged when they heard about the possible release. Dozens created petitions which quickly gained signatures and many called the Governor.


Thousands of people in the community weeped over Brianna’s horrific death. Mourners who never had the chance to meet Brianna in life came together for the baby girl in her after-life. They paid for her casket and burial and claimed her body when nobody else did. Her gravesite became a memorial site with dozens of toys and flowers, something Brianna’s family didn’t approve of.

Brianna’s family and relatives didn’t put a penny towards the child’s funeral, burial and grave-stone. Heck, they didn’t even claim her, the community did. Her family didn’t want Brianna to receive love even after her death and went out of their way to purchase a cage to go over her gravestone in an attempt to shield her. The cage is a mess, unkempt and full of trash.

The community refused to let Brianna and her story simmer and still placed flowers around the cage. They’ve also created another memorial site to visit and remember the little girl who never had a chance.

When asked why they put a cage over Brianna’s grave-site, Brianna’s family had little to say.

“They were asked, and they said they just wanted to be left alone and they wanted Brianna to be left alone,” Martinez said.


Inside the cage is a cherub with a finger raised to her lips. Some believe it’s a message.

“My first thought was, ‘Let’s not talk about what’s occurred here,’” Lopez said.

The community vows to not let that happen. People still visit and leave flowers and have built another marker as well. Brianna’s story has been told dozens of times and is still being told over a decade later on websites and online memorials including Brianna Lopez Last Memories and Facebook memorials such as In Loving Memory of Baby Brianna

Detectives, social workers and prosecutors who worked on her case will also remember Brianna.

“Before they started the autopsy and her little face was lying on a white sheet and I thought she looks asleep,” Wright said. “So I just took the picture.”


The picture was photo-shopped to edit out all the marks, bruises and scars she had. It’s the Brianna the community likes to remember.


The picture hangs on the wall next to Susana Martinez’s desk.

“It’s a reminder, of course, of why we do what we do,” Martinez said. “If you forget you’ll either become calloused or you will become Jell-O. “You can’t do this job well unless you are in the middle, and that’s just a good reminder why we do it.”

Brianna is never far from the detective either. “It drives me to work harder to prevent, to be a voice for every child of abuse,” Wright said. “That’s what it does.”


Brianna Mariah Lopez was buried at Dõna Ana Cemetery in Dona Ana County, New Mexico, USA

July 19, 2012 marked the 10th anniversary of the death of Baby Brianna. She would be  11-years-old RIP Brianna M. Lopez

Opinionated, Cynical and Sensitive!


  1. What the hell is wrong with people and this world anymore? I dislike children myself, and I never wanted a child, and you know what? I never HAD one. If you do not like children you do not HAVE them. Simple solution! If you have them, or do not believe in abortion, Etc. you give them away to a loving adoptive parent. You do NOT hit or abuse a baby! And no one on Earth should ever even WANT to do exual things with a child?! What the hell kind of twisted crazed crap makes a person even want to?? I can say this, I do not even like babies or kids. And even me, a woman with zero maternal instinct, zero desire to breed, knows this is evil, torturous, wrong and theres no excuse. She should be in prison for neglect forever, and those two guys ought to have been killed. And I dont even believe in the death penalty in general, I think it should only be reserved for rapists, molestation, and animal abusers. This makes me cry for this world and wonder if we are not a shirt time away from everything imploding because it is just too evil these days.

    1. omg….what the fuck….this is sad these kind of people are not human being they are a disgrace to human beings and this also goes to others who does these kind of things to young children generation…

    2. Anyone who could hurt a baby is pure evil!! They slowly tortured to death…especually that mother!!

    3. I am so heartbroken by this.The only thing that I can think of is that poor soul never smiling.She rose up to heaven with a broken soul.She encountered more abuse than most of us.That She was strong.She was a fighter.I cannot love her because I have never met her.But something tells me I already love her and she would have been the most amazing friend to be with and support.I would have gave her the love when she was still alive but I wasn’t even born.I am 13 and I think that I have it bad.She is a resemblance or perseverance.And I wish s.he could have lived her life in joy with kind parents.This is truly the most depressing thing.The family was never there for this little soul. Rest in heaven little one,You are in Gods kingdom without pain or hurt.

      1. Ashlynn, Bless your heart, you have the precious gift of empathy and a pure heart and I have no doubt you would be a great friend to Brianna.

  2. I can’t understand why people who abuse children/babies are protected in prison…. No one protected the victims why is the crimminal protected from sugfering the same as the suffering they inflicted …???

  3. Words can not express the hatred that this story brings out in me. I am a mother of two children (both are grown now) and to this day and everyone before and after I would lay down my life for my kids. It is beyond words to even begin to try to understand why someone would want to do this to a precious baby. If anyone even tried to hurt my kids I would kill them without thought or question. The grandparents and anyone else who knew this was happening and did nothing are just as guilty as the actual monsters who did all of these horrific things to this tiny angel. They should all be tortured the way she was until death. If the egg donor and sperm supplier didn’t want this angel they should have given her away to someone who would have given her a chance at life. I think a quick death is to good for these monsters( best word I could find). Not even animals treat their young like that. They are beyond the lowest forms of life on this planet. God Bless the community for finally coming together for this angel baby. The others can burn in Hell but I’m almost sure not even Satan himself wants them. RIP Brianna. I hope I can meet you in Heaven and tell you how sorry I am that you ever had to endure anything like this. I cry for humanity if this is any indication of what humans have inside of them. People say this world is going crazy, but if this is allowed to happen, then I don’t want to be part of this world any longer.

    1. Your comment brought tears. I have a 4yo and 5 months old daughters and I would kill the person who even thinks of harming my children. She is not a mother because mothers have that instinct to protect nurture and cuddle their babies. Why the hell are such people even born and called as humans. They are monsters. Like you said, I hope I meet little Brianna when I go to heaven and cry my heart out and cuddle her. Give her all the love she missed . Rip baby and I pray to God that I see you in heaven when I come there.

  4. I am a mother of 15 year old twins and a 8 year old! after reading the details of what happened to this precious baby i cant even hold it together to write this! As much as i hate to say this i question God!! I lost my little brother a year and a half ago and i barley started getting my faith back. But after reading this there are so many questions if there was no one to protect her then why and the hell did God let that baby suffer for as long as she did? I can go on forever about this, but all i can say is I hope that those demons suffer for the rest of there nasty lives and after they die!!

    1. I wish they would get tortured like the things they did to Breanna, sick sick non humans did this horrifying abuse to that angel, my grandsons were abused by a sick narcissistic step father and still free to walk the streets, laws have got to change that puts these people away permanently, no chance of parole.

      1. God is the only good in this evil world.
        We are in spiritual warfare
        We do not know how the game is set up
        YOU do good things
        God is our only hope

  5. Selina, I know exactly what you are feeling and i truly think God protects the innocent [animals and babies] behind the scenes, where we can’t see; they are already up in Heaven with Him, in His loving arms. I believe Gods angels are the animals and children and we will be considered by the way we treat them. 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. 7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. 8 It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones.
    Proverbs 3:5-8

    1. God if he or it exists didn’t protect her at all or she would be alive. God could have made Jesus materialize and save her if he cared about her

      1. Yall are part of the problem in the world….its fine to have your own beliefs but yall dont go saying stupid stuff like that. I believe in God, and I think its your choice to even NOT believe but…you’re being pretty fucking ironic…

    2. Bullshit..! Your blind faith words wil not relieve the hurt people still feel who were involved in trying to save Brianna; the emergency response personnel, doctors, the police and others who were thrown into this tragic story. This horrible nightmare will stay in their minds forever; the very people who tried to help this beautiful child. Numerous good people who have devoted their lives to helping others. God protects the innocent? Oh right, “behind the scenes”; so no one ever has any tangible proof! Then why does He allow them to suffer to the extent this innocent child did? Get real !!
      I’m sure you mean well but I respect religeous people as individuals, not because frequently spout off nonsensical verses. It’s insulting.!

    3. I have to reply to this because I’m having trouble seeing HOW this person that wrote this comment could be so ” brainwashed “…. GOD works behind the scenes… and the abused children and animals are REALLY angles in disguise??? I think these are real , flesh and blood , pain feeling people/ animals!!!! Not ANGELS !!…… and you said lean not on your own understanding… no you’re saying … be a blind , dumb ASS… You appear to be a fearful follower!!!! Why should we FEAR THE LORD???? Why ?? Why should you FEAR a loving GOD, one that PROTECTS innocent children and animals!!! Doesn’t look like there is a GOD !!!! RIP Brianna !!!!

      1. im speculating; how do we know, how do you know, how does anyone know? That is where faith comes in. Trust me i battle daily with this. but i also am not God and if you think about God and if you believe he can do anything he wants to and again im not saying that is how it is i just have to know there is some reason and the reason is beyond mine or any other human comprehension and when the world ends and the truth is revealed then we will all know but I do know that the Lord works in mysterious ways. I am not “brainwashed” when you have a better explanation then let’s hear it but i have to reconcile this in my soul and if this is what gets me thru the day then so be it. And if attacking me is what helps you then have at it. I choose to put my faith in God.

    4. The scriptures tell us what really happens to the dead. God does NOT turn them into angels. How is that supposed to comfort people who have lost their loved ones, especially children to accidents, disease etc. God created all the angels long before Adam and Eve were created, he does not need to create anymore. The dead are awaiting the resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous.
      Acts 24:15 We do know the day or the hour, at one time Jesus did not know the day or the hour. The righteous will possess the earth and live forever upon it. Psalm 37:29 The injustices we see on the Earth will not be here forever Revelation 21:4 the wicked will be destroyed, not in a burning fire(symbolic) for second death where there is no resurrection. The old testament theme was based on man’s fall from grace, the first man and woman,. and passing that sinful state on to all of us. That is why we needed Jesus as the ransom sacrifice, a perfect sacrifice, just like Adam who was perfect.

  6. What these monsters did to this sweet baby should be done to them. They do not deserve mercy and should be killed or at the very least spend the rest of their lives in prison. The men should be castrated and the mother sterilized; people like this should NEVER have children.

    1. These sick people should of got death and not on death row they are the lowest scum on earth but karma comes around and baby Brianna will get hers

  7. Let’s see.,,If someone in prison put a baby wipe, or better yet,a piece of sandpaper, around their fist and shoved it up one one of those pigs’ assea, you think they would squeal??

  8. Guys, i read this article MONTHS ago (and commented as well), and this still disturbs me. This keeps me up at night, because i now have a 7 month old sister and i just can’t imagine this without thinking about poor little Brianna. Things like this is the reason the world is so shit today. People are so fucking horrible to the most precious and beautiful things in the world.

    1. I agree with you. This is so sad. And what’s just as sad is I stumbled across the story of little adrian jones.

      1. Adrian jones story made me cry in bed for two days . If only I was his mum he would be here. Heather and the father should rot. They will. Eternal damnation

  9. I heard about this story a coue of years ago, I was in such shock that anyone could do such vile things with any conscience.
    I am in disgust that the animals we call people are out/will be out of prison.
    We teach our children that monsters are not real, they don’t exist. When in fact they walk among us everyday, undetected. We don’t know who they are or the horrific actions they inflict.
    It is so heart breaking that the kinds of atrocities can take place and then the repercussions are so minimal! There is no sentencing that comes close to being appropriate for these people.
    Just how much more or how many more children have to be silent victims until such time as their death?
    These mongrels deserve nothing less than their tortures to be inflicted upon them. You get what you give !

  10. Human rights am sick of this bullshit. What rights did the baby have none. What authority step in none where is child protection…. The poor little girl suffered for five months and 5 days of her little life, with the torture I couldn’t possibly believe was possible… And her mother walks free pretty soon… IT’S JUST A SHAME A REALLY SAD PETTY THAT IN NEW MEXICO AS THEY CALL IT CHILD ABUSER STILL WALK FREE AND ARE PROTECTED BY STATE AND GOVERNMENT. JUST A SHAME NEW MEXICO DOESN’T SPEND THE GOVERNMENTS MONEY IN PROTECTING CHILD INSTEAD OF FEEDING AND CARING FOR CHILD MURDERS THE DEATH PENALTY IS BETTER SUITED FOR SCUM AND I PRAY THAT WHEN U ARE REALISED UR KILLED IN THE MOST PAINFUL WAY POSSIBLE THAT LASTS WITH UNBEARABLE PAIN FOR FIVE MONTHS FIVE DAYS. SCUM

  11. How can anyone refer to these beings as anything but demons? Demons run among us and if you doubted before if they were real, here is your proof. Human beings do not possess this kind of hatred 24 hours a day for children. THEY DONT!! Something else was at work here and its very demonic in nature. They deserved to be skinned alive and fed their own flesh for what they did over and over to this poor baby.

  12. They will burn in hell sick bitches each one of them needs to be tortured just like they did her but even worse…they need to die an threw in the pit of hell… they all look retarded an dumb as fuck! Karma will get their ass!

  13. They all deserve to die and horribly!!! To do that to an innocent baby is just unthinkable!!!
    These people don’t deserve to breath.

  14. I found this article because I searched up the words, “worst case of abuse ever”. I don’t know why I did it, and i regret it dearly. Right now, I’m angry at humanity and nature for making that poor little baby have to live through all that horror so long. I know that, if that beautiful angel had survived, she would never have a regular life, even if she was rescued. People, no matter how young, don’t deserve to live with the burden of that on their shoulders. Remembering what happened to you as a child. I know from experience that you can’t wake up one morning fine, it stays with you forever in the form of PTSD, Anxiety, depression, you name it. That poor little angel was a reminder to us all that the monsters of every day life are worse than that of fictional horror movies. Mangled cannibals and body-severing aliens had more humanity than those monsters, and we’d kill cannibals and aliens. Hell itself isn’t a justifying enough punishment for those horrible freaks of nature. I hope, for the sake of humanity, that they die horrible deaths.

  15. There’s too many child abuse cases that end up with dead babies,young children,teenager abused by pimps etc etc.I am horrified with Kansas CYFD with Adrian,a little 7 yr old boy whose father,stepmother tortured Adrian for 9 mos before his death.The parents video taped what they did to Adrian and posted pics/videos to a cloud acct that belonged to their landlord.This shouldn’t happen in America.We have laws to protect our children.Yet scumbags continue to fall thru the cracks to hide the abuse inflicted on children.Adrian suffered so much.Should you see a child in an abusive home do whatever you can to protect the child(ren).

  16. I wish there was a “Dexter” in the world. If you don’t understand what I mean,watch the show Dexter and you will understand what I mean.If anyone deserves to die it’s this crazy fkn bitch! I would never wish anyone death but I have to say I change my mind about her,she deserves a slow death with everything she did to that child she can get the same.

  17. Worst part about reading this case again is that evenr the outrage from the public the “justice” did not exist for Baby Brianna since the “mother” is free to live her life, same opportunity that she took away from this little girl…she shouldn’t be allowed around any kid in the future and should have been sterilized, i do not like to wish bad on anybody except this 3 scumbags I hope they die soon and stop waisting oxygen

  18. How about this, an eye for an eye, do everything those devils did to that baby,to them for the rest of there pathetic lives , oh and there will be hell to pay ,in hell where that will end up ,

  19. I’m an Aussie and I just happened to come across this site. This a a truly sickening vile and disturbing crime. I m not religious but if there really is a hell this bitch and those bastards are going there. There should be zero tolerance for anyone who tortures and kills babies and also family pets. In this case life imprisonment ( never to be released ) at the very minimum but death penalty is more appropriate. Not lethal injection either, hanging, electric chair or firing squad so these individuals can experience the sort of fear they inflicted on an innocent baby. People like this are a waste of space and forfeit their right to be on this planet.

  20. I followed this story and after all this time it still makes me cry to read this. This beautiful baby..and other babies..who have died at the hands of people who were supposed to protect them deserve better justice. No excuse for this. May the people who do these things always look over thier sholders because i hope someday the same level of abuse comes thier way. R.I.P. beautiful angel. You will NEVER, ever be forgotten by those of us who were NOT your family

  21. My heart hurts so so much whenever I come across this story about Baby Brianna. And I cry alone every time. I am a new mother and reading about the abuse that this baby had to endure is so traumatizing to mentally process that I literally do wish these people rot and burn in hell. I hope that these people will slowly suffer for the hateful and evil things they did to this innocent little baby. I wish the worst things for these people.

    I can’t stop crying. Where was this beautiful baby’s angels? Oh heavenly Father, please don’t let these things happen to our children, or to anyone.

    Why did this happen? Why did these things do this? Baby Brianna, I may have never known you but because of what happened to you, I will forever remember you and think of you, always.

    I’m so sorry that this happened to you. I wish I couldve been a nearby neighbor to have saved you from the unbelievable hell that you were enduring. I’m so sorry, baby.

    Baby Brianna, we love you. And we know you’re in a better place now. May you forever rest in peace, baby.

  22. Wtf are they getting out they should be beaten raped and tortutured vigorously for the rest of their sorry lives who in the world does stuff like this.. Im so pissed i read this how can they hear bout this know it happened and they basically get off scott free thats bull…smdh the nerve of these sick sadistic animals

  23. I have four adult children, 8 grandchildren and 3 great -grandchildren!! This is sickening, I don’t want to think of what I’d be capable of….so sad is not enough

  24. where are these baby rapeing killers now how could are justice system allow them to ever see the light of day agin

  25. May all 3 disgusting bastards get done to them what they did to this little ANGEL and especially the relatives that didn’t give a dam about her ! May they remember Baby Briana each time they get tortured and raped and as they are being brutalized I pray all they can see is Briana ! I pray those bastards rot in hell

  26. It’s just beyond me…they should be locked away for life and denied everything but the bare basics, part of me even thinks that should be denied.

    I also find it said that people seek to start religious arguments in these comments. None of us know until we die. Enough said.

  27. I was an RN in a pediatric NICU for seven years. Believe me, this is not unusual. I had to work in another area and have psychological treatment to deal with the abuse I saw almost every day. The only thing I can say is that Brianna was fortunate to die after only 5 months. She is better off now than she was alive. Some children are abused for years far beyond most people’s ability to comprehend. Personally, I think that such people should be sterilized at the first sign that they are serious child abusers.

    1. Catherine this is horrid information, Unbelievable how evil people can be, those innocent little lives probably wonder why. Those that stand by and do nothing are just as guilty. Agee w you on the sterilization they should just be banned some vacant island. These heinous monsters are such cowards; they choose animals, babies, the elderly and disabled to take their misery out] on. May they burn in hell.

  28. I guess i do t understand why they even brought her home if they didnt want her…were they receiveing benifits for her or something….they could have just left her at the hospital….i personally had children i didnt plan to, and yes they were considered inconvenient to my life style i was leading,but, that being said i would never let someone abuse them or any child within ear shot without putting up a fight…..we must fight for those who have no voice for whatever reason (age,race,religion,nationality,creed,gender exc.) We do a good job of blocking out the things that are unfair,unjust,unscrupulous,umkind and unimaginable but inaed of blocking it out why not try to stamp it out so its not waiting around the corner

  29. Given the POS ‘family’ not only didn’t pay for her funeral, grave, burial & headstone, but didn’t even claim her poor little body..I’d really like to know why they were allowed to put up a cage? If the community paid for her grave how can they be permitted to do that? I mean, you would think just the fact that they didn’t even bother to claim her would, on its own, be enough to forfeit any kind of right they’d have to do anything to her grave.

  30. This gross and horrifying tale of human behavior is disgusting. The mother, father, and uncle should have been put to death. Any family that knew and did nothing, should have spent life in solitary confinement. The justice system is just as guilty, for the gross lack of punishment that these monsters failed to receive as well, and should be ASHAMED of the little bit of consequence it applied to such an enormously heinous crime. As long as the justice system is set up to have mercy on the abusers of children, they will continue to abuse them. These tears I’m shedding as I write this are of little use to you now baby Brianna but I hope your abusers experience pain beyond human understanding since it was so easy for them to inflict just that, onto you. I pray your soul finds rest and that your energy flourishes somewhere beyond the reach of humanity. RIP little one.

  31. Beyond disturbing that those types of evil wicked soulless sadistic murdering psychopaths exist in this world. They need to be eradicated BEFORE they inflict that type of heinous abuse on innocent victims.
    There had to have been previous behavioral signs that waved red flags, obviously showing that those monsters were not fit for society. Mandatory sterilization should be a given before they can breed, starting generations ago with those monstrous heathens.
    It is unfathomable how and why the POS sadistic psychopath Stephanie Lopez was released from prison?! I sure hope that monster met a lot of resistance, hatred, harassment, and a whole lot more…when it was released.
    People need to keep tabs on vicious rabid monsters like her and hope and pray she doesn’t get impregnated. If she does, the authorities need to intervene and whisk that baby far away from her and her depraved family and relatives.
    Poor baby Brianna…beyond words what that tiny baby endured. I’m just angered at the injustice of that filthy worthless Lopez monster hasn’t met up with her deserved destiny. She’s lived too long, as has the rest of her revolting kinfolk/clan.

  32. my heart and prayers are with all of those of us that’s been hurt as a child ,but I will never forget her she is angle, may she RIP forever, and those evil people that did that to her I hope they feel the pain everyday of their life, pray that those kind abuse stops. please GOD BLESS ALL CHILDERN

  33. this is got to be the most evil thing ever. what can prompt an adult to do such an horrific thing to a defenseless baby?
    this has left such a big cry in my heart, for children who came into this world with the trust that their parents will take care of them. I am in awe of what this world is coming to. NO LOVE, NO SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITY!!!
    I am in no place to judge, but your time will come, when you stand in front of our maker. the only comfort that I can give, is that GOD WILL PREVAIL, AND HE WILL JUDGE THE WICKED, when the time is right.
