Little Isaiah Gutierrez learned a hard lesson about lying a few days ago. Too bad he won’t be able to apply that lesson in the future, since the final act of the lesson was his own death. According to the sources listed above, he was beaten to death (does slamming him into the side of a dresser qualify as ‘beating’? I think so.) for lying about wetting his pants. As I potty trained my kids, they all had accidents occasionally. Do you know how I cured them of that? Well, I’ll tell you what I didn’t do….I sure as hell didn’t use the side of a dresser (or any other piece of furniture) as a potty training tool. I’d take them to the bathroom, clean them up, and tell them to try again.
The worthless individual responsible for the death of this child is his step-penis, Richard Gutierrez, 31. He was babyslinging…..oops, I meant babysitting, 5-year old Isaiah when the accidental wetting and intentional beating took place. After lying to the doctors and police about the incident, he finally told the truth when he realized they were much smarter than he was and didn’t believe his BS story. His first attempt at storytelling involved an accidental fall from a bed and finding a broken child on the floor beside a “TV thing”. Not sure what a ‘TV thing’ is, but OK. Ho, hum….why do they always try to blame furniture for the injuries – well in this case he was half-truthful – a piece of furniture was involved, but it wasn’t the bed….and it wasn’t an accident.
When the truth finally surfaced, Richard admitted to slinging the boy against the dresser, and then trying to revive him with a cold bath when he lost consciousness. Why are all child killers so predictably stupid? Do they have to take a class or something? “How to Come up With Lame Excuses 101″, maybe?
Anyway, Isaiah was placed on life support at the hospital, but to no avail. He died a few short days later, of traumatic brain injuries. May Dick receive the same in jail….I hope.
Dick is currently being held on a no-bond hold. I hope it remains that way. No word on the mother, or whether she knew about any previous abuse, so I will leave her out of this for now. I REALLY hope she didn’t know what this guy was capable of, but he did have a previous record (two years ago) for domestic violence. I’ll update as I get more info.
If anyone sent in a tip – thank you. I actually looked this one up on my own though.
