Isabella Martinez' Mother Choked Her to Death and Left Her There

Isabellamartinez.jpg

This is a particularly sad story I came across last night and almost wasn’t going to post. 
Veva Virgil has four children ranging in ages from 3-18. The only one that she has custody of is Isabella Martinez, the youngest.
She also has Schizophrenia and takes medication for it although I don’t know if she actually takes it on a regular basis or not. According to her husband it just doesn’t work sometimes. Schizophrenia can be particularly ugly in that it can present you with delusions, hallucinations, disorganized behavior and even catatonia. Really severe cases can require long-term hospitalization.
Veva apparently suffered some type of breakdown on Friday afternoon and took off with her three-year-old daughter. Sunday afternoon Richard Sullens filed a missing persons report, right around the same time that Isabella Martinez lifeless body was found by a member of the housekeeping staff in a Watsonville Motel 6.

Isabella Martinez died from Asphyxiation. She had been choked to death in the hotel room and her mother left her there with no intention of returning.
Upon her arrest Veva Virgil stated to the police that she was the only one involved but the police are still investigating that just to make sure. 
Veva Virgil had an arraignment hearing yesterday and she has pleaded innocent on charges of murder.

  • I am Vevas youngest sister with a child Bellas age and I am hurt and pissed and more but dont wanna go on about it. I am so sorry that my Niece of all people was the one that got hurt in all this but it should of never been this way, she was supposed to outlive me and her other aunts and Unlces. How can some one kiil such an innocent little girl just because of their life and sickness. Bella got caught up in lies and bullshit that she should of never even been around. It is sad that this has happened and I will never forgive my sister for taking away such a sweet little girl that I never even got to meet. I will meet her in heaven one day though. I love you and miss you so very much my little Bella Bug. Love your Auntie and Cusion Angel and Melissa. You are forever in our hearts and thoughts. You will never be forgotten.

  • I am so sorry for the lose of your precious Bella. It’s such a tragedy that she lost her life at 3, especially at the hands of her Mom. Social Service sucks, they are either too late, too slow, not working, not following up, not caring etc. Similar situations have happen in many of our families, even mine. Our family situation didn’t end in death, but it could have if we waited on social service. Not saying that it’s all of there fault, but the system fails us quite a bit. And mental illness can’t be the crutch to lean on for excuses either. God Bless Your Family, you’ll get through it, and see cute Bella again.

  • We are getting ready for court trial PRELIM. on WENS. No sight of her “LOVING” but her absent family. Rich her husband is doing his best to keep veva from killing herself.her poor brother and sister in law are the only ones I sincerly see trying to better their lives and be good parents. veva was a abused kid from a family that only understands survival …its no wonder they never had it in them to work harder and be less selfish or lazy…veva was on her own with this sickness and they had nothing to contribute….same story..diff day………Funny to see bella spoken about by veva’s family members that act like the cared enough to know this baby. i wondered for yrs. where anyone was or if anyone cared…where were thee people and why didn’t they care before… ridiculous! how many letters have they written their sick sister? no one cared in that family and this is why veva was so victimized thoughout her life…why did they not protect veva from the things that eroded her mind…..I saw it happen. veva’s former mother im law is the worst ever…shame on you CYNDRA WILLIAMS!! SHAME!!!! if anyone loves bella then how about asking how you can SAVE her other little sister…LILY..she is in BAD HANDS too…How about that? Family????????????? that is what drove Veva crazy…knowing where her other little girl was stuck living. Not any better than Veva grew up…second thought….Only Mark & DORI or myself would give the kid half a chance…truth!!

  • i read that this woman asked 2 motel employees for help and pleaded with one of them to take her baby. why isn’t anyone concerned about that? if these 2 women aren’t going to receive charges for failure to report a child in danger then they should have to answer to the public. if they would have reacted this little girl would not have died that day in the motel room. i hope these b****es are forever haunted by the face of the baby whose life they could have saved.
