TX Mother Horrifically Injures 3-Year-Old Son, Nurses Shocked
A disgusting San Antonio mother is behind bars while her 3-year-old son remains in the hospital with unimaginable injuries. Brandy Laurel and Justin Garcia are sitting behind bars after hospital visits reveal a massive amount of child abuse on a 3-year-old boy.
HOSPITAL VISIT #1
On April 22 Laurel took her 3-year-old son to Methodist Children’s Hospital for a head injury. Workers didn't suspect child abuse during this visit.
HOSPITAL VISIT #2
About a week later, the boy was taken in again, this time nurses were alarmed at the number of injuries, and alerted law enforcement. Deputies listened to the extensive list of horrific injuries. The young child had the following injuries:
- a brain bleed
- swelling all over the head
- bruising to his right temple that appeared to resemble a shoe imprint
- subgaleal hemorrhage
- a black eye
- bruises on his back and legs that were in different stages of healing
Nurses discovered scabs under his hair and explained it could have been from getting his hair pulled or from being struck.
Laurel gave deputies a mixture of excuses, placing blame on the boy's siblings. CPS placed the children in the care of a family member, allowing Laurel supervised visits only.
HOSPITAL VISIT #3
Nearly 3 weeks later, the child was rushed to the hospital by ambulance. He had been in the care of his mother, which violated the CPS safety plan.
Various scans revealed another list of heartbreaking injuries:
- fractures to his left distal femur
- fracture to the right proximal tibia and fibula
- injuries to his skull
Laurel continued giving ridiculous excuses. She explained the 3-year-old must have injured himself during a tantrum.
LOCK THEM IN A CELL AND THROW AWAY THE KEY
Brandy Laurel and her boyfriend Justin Garcia are both in Bexar County jail, each with a $100,000 bond.
