The woman’s boyfriend told the boy that his mother was just sleeping and asked him not to wake her up.
The determined boy summoned neighbors to help him wake his mother up. But she had passed away hours earlier, at their apartment in the 5500 block of De Soto Street, Houston.
The woman, who was seven weeks pregnant, had been declared dead in her home. Investigators found the apartment walls and floors spattered with blood. The documents stated that the woman was found with blunt force trauma to her head and body.
Houston police are on a lookout for the boyfriend who fled before the incident was discovered. According to People, he is now wanted on a charge of murder. The 8-year-old told the police that he witnessed his mother being physically assaulted.
He saw the man beating Garcia with his steel-toe work boots before he left their house. Court documents also claimed that a neighbor saw the man assaulting the mother at a parking lot on 18 September, 2020. The neighbor said that the man tried to force the woman along with her son into the Jeep with him. But she refused. So, he dragged her to her third-floor apartment and committed the heinous crime.
