Skip to comments.EVIL STEPDAD'S SADISTIC RAGE - 7 year old Nixzmary , Bound, beaten, starved, killed (TORTURED)

He was a crazed monster and she was his pint-sized prey.
Whatever 7-year-old Nixzmary Brown did, it was inevitably wrong in the eyes of her brutish, 27-year-old stepfather.
There were six kids in their cramped Bed-Stuy apartment, and she was the one Cesar Rodriguez always targeted.
He told cops Nixzmary was wild and disobedient and he responded with violence, sources said. It happened all the time.
She was "the devil" and it was his job to discipline her that's how he put it.
"There were arguments, lots of arguments. One was over her taking $100; one was over her taking yogurt," said a detective familiar with the case.
"It appears that this girl was the brunt of everything that goes wrong in his house," he said.
Rodriguez would allegedly beat her, throw her around in a back bedroom, bind her arms and legs to a small chair with flesh-biting white nylon rope. And then he'd allegedly tie the chair to a radiator so she couldn't move.
While the chair was a frequent torture implement for the child, it was apparently not involved in the attack that killed her.
Cops are also investigating whether Nixzmary was fed cat food and forced to use a litter box as a toilet. Feces found in the box are larger than a cat's but smaller than an adult's.
Rodriguez had disciplined his stepdaughter in the past, but he started doing it almost daily right before Christmas when he lost his job as a security guard, sources said.
On Wednesday, the day he punished her for the last time, he was furious because the starving youngster had taken a container of yogurt from the refrigerator, sources said. Her brothers and sister had been given some, but she hadn't.

Easy to beat on a little kid. Let's see how he does against prisoners pushing weight for a few years.
(Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn -WABC, January 13, 2006) - There is more finger pointing and more promises to prevent further tragedies as the city continues to cope with this week's horrifying case of child abuse.
The autopsy results were released a short time ago.
Eyewitness News reporter N.J. Burkett is live in Bedford-Stuyvesant with the latest.
Based on what was already known, the results of the autopsy are chilling, but sadly, not entirely surprising. She was clearly the victim of child abuse syndrome, concluded the medical examiner.
The specific cause of death was blunt force impact to the head that caused a subdural hematoma, a blood clot in other words, in her brain. It's a story that is all the more disturbing because it could have been prevented.
As the memorial to little Nixzmary Brown continues to grow, so do the questions.
A.J. Ortiz, Neighbor: "What do you got to have? Another hundred more times? Kids that got to die and wind up like this? It's no good."
The girl's stepfather is charged with murder, her mother with manslaughter. Police say Nixzmary was beaten and tortured until she died earlier this week, a seven-year-old girl who weighed just under 40 pounds.
Just a few weeks ago school officials complained to child welfare authorities about excessive absences, even suspicious bruises, but there was no follow-up visit.
Schools Chancellor Joel Klein: "Since early December, the school staff kept ACS apprised regarding absences and the staff's inability to contact the family."
The mayor made this promise to the city in his weekly radio show this morning.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg: "Once we get through this I want to look at whether or not all of these agencies, the department of education, ACS, all of the social services, are talking to each other adequately."
It is not as if the signs and signals were missed here, it is just apparently that they were ignored. The mayor insisted today that he is determined to get to the bottom of this and we will have much more coming up on Eyewitness News at 5:00 p.m.

Never had a chance.
I hope Rodriguez rots in hell
Kerry Blue City Ping!
I wonder how much crack the SOB was doing?
Nixzmary? No wonder she was a tough kid to manage. Anyone who would give a kid a name like that is already being cruel.
Every time I read one of these stories, I have to hug my little (7 YO) boy.
NY City is a cesspool about to collapse under the weight of its own feces.
Should he be proven guilty and it looks grave, he should go to death row and than I would be happy to execute this evil man (along with his wife). I do not think NY executes anymore do they?
A seven year old child, what he did to her ....
Throw him into the general population!
Our Court of Appeals just tossed the death penalty.
Her other moments were horriffic as well.
I have a 7-year-old daughter, and I cannot conceive of a heart that could look at a little girl, hear her sobs and pleas, and batter her in this or any other manner.
I hope this guy gets buggered in prison every day until he dies, after which I wish him an eternity of being buggered in Hell daily by Satan.
And I hope the girl's mother gets worse.
The killers brother was interviewed and he said we are Mexican and this is how we discipline and no one understands. It was hard to comprehend how he tried to make this something it wasn't.
Throw him into GP AFTER letting out the rumor he's a "snitch".
Some people are indeed the embodiment of evil.
Should move the trial to Vermont.
I hope he enjoys himself in general population.
I hope they beat this POS to death. "F" the trial!
Throw him in with Bubba, his 400 pound HIV positive former wrestler new Main Squeeze.
He'll understand torture and pain
well, you know there's that one in 19 million chance DNA proof would be wrong, therefore there's doubt and no one should be executed (sarcasm)
I can't understand how someone could abuse an animal like this, much less a child.
I hope the inmates where Cesar Rodriguez is imprisoned know how he tortured this little girl, and treat him likewise.
If this is how Mexicans discipline kids we really need to build that fence.
That's for God to judge ... I'd be satisfied with seeing him hang by the neck until dead.
I don't think there is one punishment bad enough for this couple, so I suggest at least a dozen.
Not again! Every damn social worker on this case shopuld be fired ASAP, and their supervisor, too.
Damn NYC child welfare services. They should be strung up next to this pervert.
The killer's brother is FOS.
They need to do the same thing to this piece of sh*t that he did to this innocent child. The more painful they can make his life, the better.
MORE of the gov'ts failure to remove children from dangerous homes. And to punish the guilty parties.
"May she be in the comfort of His arms."
The mother is just as or more guilty of this child's death. It was HER daughter and she did nothing for her.
The killer's brother needs to be deported back to mexico

"She shared with me." WHEN she came to school, which wasn't all that often, little Nixzmary Brown was sad and she was hungry.
At home, she was systematically starved by her parents, beaten, tied up and sexually tormented - abuse she took pains to hide.
What she could not conceal, those in cushy positions simply chose not to see.
Though she had next to nothing, Nixzmary was the kind of girl who gave away what little she had.
"She was my best friend," Mya Thomas told me yesterday. The doe-eyed 7-year-old stood under the careful watch of her mother outside PS 256, terrified to go inside.
Why did you love her so much? she was asked.
The child did not hesitate.
"Because she shared with me," said Mya. "When I didn't have any snacks, she shared hers with me."
So the child who was starving gave her precious pretzels to a child who was merely hungry.
Mya brushed away a tear.
I had to hide my own.
Little Nixzmary came to school sad and she came to school hungry. That is, when she came. Mya never knew why.
"She never said anyone hurt her," Mya whispered.
It was the first time poor little adorable Mya had ever even considered the possibility that someone could hurt a child. Just saying the words caused obvious pain to her.
These are things her mom, Lizette Sepulveda, would rather her baby did not have to know, not yet. But lately, the mom has been forced to explain why children die. So will parents across the city.
Mya looked at the yard, where she played with her pal. Little Nixzmary, so malnourished that she weighed only 36 pounds, was still a child - she was graceful and fast.
"She played tag. She played ball. She jumped rope with me," said Mya.
But in the two years they sat together in class, Nixzmary never once went to Mya's house for a play date, nor did Mya visit her apartment. And that was strange.
Instead, Mya watched as Nixzmary seemed to slip away before her eyes. She grew thinner. She grew distant. Then, she stopped coming to school. The alarm bells were ringing to a 7-year-old girl. But adult ears were deaf to them.
Yesterday, the children of Bed-Stuy feared coming to school. Last May, 11-year-old Queen Washington, another student at PS 256, was killed by a 9-year-old pal as the pair fought over a rubber ball. Now this.
"My daughter was crying this morning. She was afraid!" said Nicole Powell, whose 7-year-old, Michelle, was in Miss Colonna's class with Nixzmary.
"Why didn't the school call?" Powell demanded. "When Michelle acted up, I got a call.
"It's ridiculous! They haven't seen the girl in a month, and they don't call?" she exclaimed, disgustedly.
Other parents and the Department of Education noted that the school did, in fact, call.
Nixzmary is dead. And her parents are to blame.
And yet, there is plenty of blame and shame to go around.
Now, every child in Bed-Stuy is suffering. And it is left to their parents to tell them why grown-ups kill.
And to pray it never happens to them.
"They"? Who's "they"? You volunteering? If so, you're as warped as he is.
All y'all who want to see this turd tortured/buggered to death, need to remember that means somebody has to do the torturing and buggering. Since none of you are tortureres and buggerers, that sort of leaves his fellow inmates.
Guess what? His fellow inmates are also in there for some sort of felony. The ones who would do the torturing and buggering are in there for committing some sort of violent crimes themselves ... and you idiots want to reward them! Grow up. Turn your brains on. Turning prisons into playgrounds for violent perverts is not justice.
These freaks need to be in solitary, right up 'til the moment they ride the lightning.
Without a doubt. Trying to say this is normal. My cousin married a lovely Mexican girl. Torture is NOT the norm for discipline in their society.
Should move this guy to general population. He will not last long.
I read that article and couldn't get to the end without crying. It's heartbreaking.Poor little sweetheart. Apparently she had asked her abuela to take her back to PR . If only...but this sad story is so full of if only's.
I think I'm going to be ill.
Put both stepfather and mother in a chopper. Fly them to a rock quarry and hover. Push both of them out and let them rot so the vultures can eat their sorry carcasses.
There is no punishment on Earth adequate for this horrible crime.
The Rodriguez family is only circling the wagons.They have to justify the abuse somehow, and BSing about it being part of the culture is part of the avoidance of personal responsibility. Sick bastards.
Absolutely! And trying to invent one, and carry it out would be simply to degrade ourselves.
Better simply to rid ourselves of these people, quickly and efficiently.
From my experience with Mexicans (most of my friends in elementary and junior high school were Mexican-American) I would say that child abuse is very far from the norm in these families. Quite the opposite. I've noticed that, on the whole, Mexicans cherish their children and treat them extremely well. For that POS brother to say that abuse and torture are part of his 'culture' is outrageous.
I get nauseous when I read stories like this.
I agree with you 100%. We are not Pakistanis here - we do not sentence people to be tortured or raped. Civilization demands a quick firing squad or the equivalent.
