Updated 11/11/2022 to include Tristan Price photo and update a few facts
Just this past Friday four-year-old Tamyrill Randall was found unconscious and not breathing in her house. According to El Paso County Sheriff’s deputies Tristan Price was supposed to be taking care of her. When he found her unresponsive. He shook her to try and wake her up and when that didn’t work he tried to revive her in the shower. Then he called 911. Tamyrill was pronounced dead at Memorial Hospital.
An autopsy that was performed Saturday morning showed that in addition to eight broken ribs and a bit mark on her shoulder the girl’s liver was almost ripped in half, which would have killed her within minutes. The coroner stated that the liver injury would have been consistent with being stomped on.
In addition to the current injuries the forensic pathologist also said that three of the ribs had been broken previously and had started healing when they were broken again in the same place. Tristan Price has also been investigated previously because of bite marks found on each of Tamyrill’s breasts but no charges had been filed in that investigation. One interesting thing was that the mother of the child, Tanesa Randall had a large bite mark on her arm and told detectives that Price had bitten her in anger.
In addition to being jailed on first-degree murder he has also been charged with several misdemeanors in an unrelated violence incident with Tanesa Randyll. Unrelated? Seems related to me. As a matter of fact it leads right up to the abuse this poor child suffered.
KKTV in Colorado says that Tanesa Randall and the brother of Tristan Price had no idea that Price had been locked up for murder. They had thought he was arrested for domestic violence. Tanesa said “I just want to figure out what happened to my daughter. I don’t have any answers. Other people know more about my daughter’s autopsy than me”.
If (and this is a big if) this is the real Tanesa, she posted a comment over at KOAA on the story:
MY MAIN CONCERN IS WHAT HAPPENED TO MY BABY__AND WHY ARE THE POLICE NOT PURSUING MY DAUGHTERS CASE AS THE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY. THE POLICE ARE ASKING MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PRICES PERSONAL LIVES THEN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO MY BABY! WHEN TRISTAN WAS ORIGINALLY ARRESTED HE WAS ARRESTED ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, NOT MURDER, AND THERE WERE OTHER PEOPLE IN THAT HOUSE AT THE TIME OF MY DAUGHTERS DEATH, EXCLUDING MYSELF, OTHER PEOPLE THAT WERE NOT PURSUED LIKE TRISTAN, THAT BRINGS A CONCERN TO ME, YES!!! THIS IS NOT A CASE OF MOMS BOYFRIEND SHE JUST MET, I HAVE KNOWN TRISTAN FOR OVER 8 YEARS, HES BEEN AROUND MY 9 YEAR OLD FROM THE TIME SHE WAS 9 MONTHS OLD, HE HAS NEVER HURT ANY OF MY CHILDREN, NOT TO MENTION THE 10 MONTH OLD WE JUST HAD IN NOV. 2008 __ALL I WANT IS JUSTICE FOR MY BABY, WHOEVER DID IT, I WANT THEM TO BE PUNISHED, BUT I DEFENITELY HAVE MANY DOUBTS ABOUT THESE CHARGES, ESPECIALLY DUE TO ALL THE LEAKS, AND UNANSWERED QUESTIONS, AND THE FACT THE EPSO DIDN’T PURSUE THE OTHER PEOPLE IN THE HOME, LIKE THEY HAVE DONE TRISTAN. EVERYONE IS MISSING THE FACT I HAVE LOST MY DAUGHTER THERE IS A CASE TO BE SOLVED, LETS WORK ON THAT INSTEAD OF GOING ANTI- PRICE.
Interesting comment to say the least. According to the reports I have read so far Mr Price was home alone with Tamyrill which is why police have charged him with the murder.
Updated – In March, 2009 Tristan Price pleaded guilty March 16 to felony child abuse, knowingly and recklessly causing the death of 4-year-old Tamyrii Randall. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
