“It is absolutely a brutal, brutal homicide.” Those are not the words I want to hear describe anybody’s death, never mind a 2-year old. But that is how Phoenix Sgt. Trent Crump described the murder of 2-year old George Rogel, also named Jorge I. Zamora-Rogel in various articles.
Warning: the details of this murder are horrendous. Do not read if you can’t handle it. I can hardly handle reading and typing what is coming next.
George/Jorge’s 18-year old mother, Wendy Rogel-Pagas, came home on Friday night last week with food for her, her son, and her boyfriend; Juan Garcia, 18. When the little boy wouldn’t come out of his room to eat, Juan pulled him out by his ear. When the child started crying; the dickless, spineless soon-to-be baby killer got enraged and picked up the little boy by his throat and began smashing his head against a bedroom wall.
According to the mother, she tried to stop him. So did she bash him over the head with a cast iron skillet? No. Did she pick up anything there was in sight to knock his fucking block off? No. Did she rush to call 911 so that someone could help her and her dying baby? No. In fact, after Juan fled the scene, she was home an hour and half alone with her son before her boner-donor returned. These two apparently don’t have 3 brain cells between them because when Juan came home, he tried to revive the boy by picking him up and dropping him on the floor. Yeah, ’cause that always works.
It was too late by that point anyway. Little George/Jorge had already stopped breathing and his little heart had stopped beating.
“She saw that this child was unconscious for some time. Had literally taken steps to remove and to evacuate froth and blood from his mouth,” Crump said.
Fucking sickening. Who lets someone beat their baby to a pulp and then not call 911? She has her son’s blood on her hands and I hope that every day she spends locked away she pictures his smiling face and his light being extinguished by her trash bag of a boyfriend. I hope the dick was good honey, I really do.
Since Juan is obviously no man, for so many reasons, let’s add to the list that he’s on the run. The manhunt for him has brought back a big goose egg so far, they haven’t been able to find him. In the meantime, the “mother” was arrested on child abuse charges. No word on her bond or bail or if she’s still in jail, which I guess she is.
Garcia is described as Hispanic, 5 feet 8 inches tall and 170 pounds. He is possibly driving a 2005 gray Nissan Altima with Arizona plate ANJ3755. If you know his whereabouts call Phoenix police at 602-262-6141 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
Before anyone blames this murder on their ages, save your breath please. My best friend had her 1st baby at the age of 19, and they’re both still alive. My cousin had her son when she was 18 and he’s a thriving 14-year old now. The fact that the mother was a teen mom and her boyfriend has also not entered his 20s, does not make them any more capable of committing such an atrocious murder of a baby than a 40-year old. Browse through the thousands of articles in the archives here at bb.net and you’ll see that age makes no difference for baby killers.
RIP sweet baby boy… having a 2-year old myself, this story makes me break into pieces. I can only imagine your sweet, mischievous grin, your curiosity and the light in your eyes when you learned something new. Rest easy little man.
