According to Carrie Hoeppner, the spokeswoman for the Department of Children and Families in Osceola County, Florida, investigators have developed a profile of people who are highly likely to be a suspect in a child abuse related death. According to the article at the Orlando Sentinel she said “interestingly enough, it suggests child protection investigators to pay peculiar attention to the mother’s boyfriend, young in age, not attached to the child, left as a caregiver”.
I wonder how much money it cost the taxpayers of Osceola County for that useless tidbit of information that anyone who writes about child abuse could have told them in about five minutes.
Speaking of useless young boyfriends who are left in charge of children that brings us to the metrosexual looking fuck pictured in the mug shot. This is 19-year-old Jonathan Alicea. Jonathan has been arrested and charged with sex crimes twice now. The first time was in 2002 when he allegedly fondled a child under 15. He was only twelve at the time though so if it weren’t for the fact that he was charged with molesting a child in 2003 plus this latest crime we might just chalk it up to youthful excess. Obviously it was a message that nobody listened to.
Sunday Alicea’s girlfriend Silkia Mateo left her two children, a two-year-old boy and six-year-old sibling, with Alicea while she went to work. According to Alicea’s statement he cooked supper about five and started getting frustrated when the two-year-old boy, Jariel Alexander, wouldn’t eat the dinner of hot dogs and scrambled eggs. He stood up and urinated in his pants. Jonathan ordered him to change his pants and the little boy refused after he started heading to the bathroom.
At that point he walked to the kid and supposedly pushed the boy which caused him to lose consciousness. Obviously pushing someone isn’t going to make them lose consciousness so it had to be a bit more than that. Anyway, the boy also stopped breathing so Alicea put him in an empty dresser drawer and attempted CPR. When that didn’t work he boiled a pot of water and poured it on the child in hopes of waking him up. WTF?
After that? Nothing. Alicea didn’t do a fucking thing until his girlfriend got home half an hour later. At that point he rushed outside with the body of the boy wrapped in a towel. He was rushed to a hospital in Kissimmee where he was placed on a respirator because he was unresponsive from the head injury. Even last night the ER staff said his chances of surviving were pretty bleak.
Jariel Alexander died on October 12th.
Alicea is currently in the Osceola County Jail, held with no bond on charges of murder.
