Man Beat His Girlfriend's Two Year Old Son To Death For Not Eating His Dinner

Juan Garcia split

Violent: Police are hunting Juan Garcia, left, who beat two-year-old Jorge Zamora-Rogel, right, to death

Police are hunting a man who beat his girlfriend's two-year-old son to death because he would not eat his dinner.

Juan Garcia, 18, had moved in to the home of Wendy Rogel-Pagasa, 18, in Phoenix, Arizona, only days before he killed her son, Jorge, in a fit of rage.

According to court documents released yesterday, Garcia became increasingly angry when the toddler would not eat the food he had brought home last Friday.

Arrested: Wendy Rogel-Pagasa was arrested on suspicion of failing to protect her son

Garcia gripped the boy by the ear and pulled him out of his bedroom.

When the child started to cry, Garcia became more infuriated and grabbed him by the throat, repeatedly slamming his head against the wall and knocking him unconscious.

When Rogel-Pagasa begged Garcia to stop, he whipped her with an electrical cord and attempted to choke her.

After the attack, Garcia left the home for about one-and-a-half hours and Rogel-Pagasa watched as her bleeding, unconscious son convulsed on the floor. 

She tried unsuccessfully to revive him, but did not call for help, according to police.

When Garcia returned, he tried to rouse the child by hitting him more, lifting him up by his ankle, bending his fingers back, and slapping him in the face.

It wasn't until Jorge stopped breathing that Rogel-Pagasa called 911 - more than three hours after the initial beating, police said. By then, Garcia had fled. Phoenix fire paramedics pronounced the child dead at the scene.

Police said Rogel-Pagas initially told them her boy got hurt by falling over before admitting what had really happened. She was later arrested and held on one count of child abuse on suspicion of failing to protect her son.

Sgt. Trent Crump, who is dealing with the case, urged anyone with information about the whereabouts of Garcia to come forward.

‘He killed a child with his bare hands,’ Sgt. Crump told ‘We're going to find him. And anybody who gets in the way of that is going to go to jail as well.’

Satan comes in all forms,,it seems like love affection and even calling themselves friends but the reality of this all is we as women need to know what love really is and stop using these serious words and the real meaning of it for granted..and dont use it the way society uses it otherwise u will end up where she is today.....take your life serious,take love seriously,,and know when someone cares for u they don't under no circumstances hurt is pure it`s kind it never angers..but it can always! Always be trusted....I prayer for rogel and boyfriend juan,they need Jahovah seriously....because this situation is SERIOUS!

Take her dumb ass to jail. How could you sit and watch a bleeding baby unconscious and not know he's hurt. Even a 5 year old knows blood means injured. She should be held accountable. He should be accountable for the child's death with his life. He know's he did wrong that's why he ran. Punk ass clown, beating baby for not knowing. He go one coming when he gets locked up. You guys know how prisoners feels about child murders.

See, this is why kids don't need to have kids.  She was 16 when she had him so she probably didn't want to be a mother anyway!  How do you stand there and watch your child convulse?  She had ample time to get her son to the hospital and call the police.  The fact that she sat there for an hour and half when he came back only to abuse the baby more....she might as well have killed him herself.  If she would have called 911 immediately, perhaps he could have been saved.  Poor baby!

My God, this type of story angers me. I mean what the Hell dude thats a human being,a baby at that.He going to hell and the mother going to Hell for not giving up her own life for her Son, she sat there and let'em do the s***, then she had the opportunity to call or escape for help instead.she stayed there three hours with her son dying . He would b alive if she would had took off as soon as she saw had that chance when the dude left . She said dude came back after a ling while and beat the baby some more and thats when she heard her own son stop brething , and for all that she needs to rot in jail. She had the opportunity to escape get help something but she chose not to . Then she looks further guilty for trying to cover up what really happened. There needs to b a law that if you abuse kill your child you automatically get your tubes tied and burned so these worthless spineless women cant bring any more babies into the world to suffer horribly R.I.P BABY
