Johnstown - A quiet, working-class neighborhood in this small town 40 miles north of Denver quickly became distraught over the news of the death of a popular 7-year-old girl, who allegedly died from abuse by her older sister and her boyfriend.
Zoe Garcia, who was described as "a beautiful little girl", died on Dec. 6 from "blunt force trauma" to her brain and central nervous system, according to the Weld County Coroner. Her right wrist was broken, her body had more than 20 bruises, her neck muscles were bleeding and a skin flap near her tongue had been torn.
Zoe's older sister, Heather Trujillo, 16, and her boyfriend, Lamar Roberts, 17, of Westminster, were arrested Tuesday and charged with child abuse resulting in death, a Class II felony.
Trujillo said they were acting out the video game "Mortal Combat" by savagely hitting and kicking Zoe, even dropping her on her side, which broke her wrist. Roberts, who claimed to be a martial-arts expert with his hands registered as "lethal weapons, said Zoe had asked him to stop hitting her but that he didn't because "...I was drunk."
Roberts said he had performed a back kick on her, then kicked her again as she ran toward him. She fell back and didn't get up. She had stopped breathing, and Trujillo and Roberts waited 15 minutes before calling for help.
They said they put her in a bath, which temporarily revived her, but that she stopped breathing again. Roberts said he cracked an egg in her mouth "to see if she was messing around with them."
The egg went down her throat, the affidavit stated.
Finally, the mother and paramedics were called. Zoe was taken to the Northern Colorado Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.
Dang straight...and WITH KICKS.
“WITH KICKS”—to clarify..with karate kicks.
Drag them both out of the courthouse and shoot them in the head.
Hardboiled — with the shell intact...
Elephants are hard to come by. Would a loaded semi be a suitable substitute?
Parents, love your children. Don’t let this happen. Your most sacred purpose in life is the proper raising of your children. If there is something in your life that interferes with that, get it out of your life.
could we just hire a muzzie to cut his head off with a pen knife?
you’re wrong with the quick part.
More likely some anal combat moves....lol
Rest in the arms of the Lord, Zoe...
Then take him on a tour of the West Texas countryside.
Holy crap, I am so glad i was not the only one who noticed that. I was afraid to comment but all I could think of “low sloping forehead”.
As long as you can make the elephant go slow.
Mortal Kombat is sooooo three years ago.
