Jersey Angelina Ruiz

Find A Grave Memorial

Irene Walker was a stay at home mother who had two children of her and took are of her niece, Jersey Ruiz. Jersey was at preschool one day when her mother was called to come and pick her up early. Jersey was lethargic and she had been vomiting. That night at around 10:00 p.m., Jersey was taken to St. Anthony's hospital, she was not breathing and she had no pulse. It was reported that Jersey had been taken to this hospital at least three previous times. Jersey was pronounced dead at the hospital. Irene had been taking care of Jersey on the day she was taken to the hospital.

Irene told Police that Jersey fell down a lot and even said that at one point, Jersey had broken her leg and because she was so tough, she never cried or complained about it at all. An autopsy revealed that Jersey had injures which were consistent with those of someone who had been in a major car accident and she had died from blunt force trauma to her abdomen. Irene sent written notice that she would not be allowing anyone to interview her in jail. In pictures of Irene in court, she is smiling as though NOTHING is wrong, as though she didn't KILL an innocent little child. Irene was arrested and held on $100,000. bond.

At her sentencing hearing, it was revealed that Irene Walker's daughter had witnessed the attack on Jersey and she had seen her mother stomping on Jersey's stomach. Irene Walker was was 28 years old when she was sentenced to 16 short years in prison for what she did to this precious, beautiful, little Angel. In court, Irene cried and swore that she didn't hurt Jersey and she was only guilty of not getting her medical help when she needed it.

There isn't much to report about this story, it seems to start and then end. I wish I knew more about Jersey, what did she enjoy in life, what was her favorite color, what did she want to be when she grew up? She's an Angel now and that is better than living a life of abuse at the hands of someone who should have loved her more than anything.
