Man accused of Torturing 8-Year-Old to Death Because he was Gay



Man accused of Torturing 8-Year-Old to Death Because he was Gay - BellaNaija32-year-old Isauro Aguirre has been accused of torturing his girlfriend’s 8-year-old son to death because he felt the child was gay.

Aguirre, from Palmdale, California, allegedly beat and bit Gabriel Fernandez, burned him with cigarettes, whipped him, starved him, fed him cat litter, and gagged and bound him until he was found, Attitude reports.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office prosecutor Jon Hatami reportedly revealed the grim details during the opening statements of Aguirre’s trial.

In a statement given by Fernandez’s brother during the trial, he said the child was also forced to eat vomit and cat faeces, and was sprayed with pepper spray.

“My mom and her boyfriend made Gabriel eat spoiled stuff or expired stuff. One thing I remember is expired spinach. He threw it up, and they made him eat it off the table,” Ezequiel Fernandez told the court.

Fernandez’s mother, Pearl Fernandez, was also charged to court, but will be tried separately.

The couple had called 911 afterward, and Fernandez was hospitalized for 2 days after which he passed.

But Hatami said their call was to cover up their tracks, not in the interest of the child. He said: “They didn’t call 911 to help Gabriel. They called 911 to cover up what they did. The defendant lied on the 911 call.”

Aguirre had also allegedly forced Fernandez to dress in women’s clothes before leaving for school, and that he disliked the child because he believed he was gay.

Hatami said: “The evidence will show that the defendant is nothing more than a bully. He was a security guard who intentionally tortured and abused a helpless and innocent little boy.”

Aguirre’s lawyer, on the other hand, claims that his client admits to murder, but denies that he tortured the child.

He said although Aguirre did abuse the child, he never meant for the child to die. He said: “Despite the horrific abuse, Isauro never intended for Gabriel to die.”

    The devil is human. I don’t know how a woman & mother can let this happen to her own child regardless of age. Worst still in America where there is expectation of child safety to a high extend. The kinds of news seen these days shows humanity has lost it and we still have lawyers in defense.
