START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
Jul 28, 2011

This petition is for baby Brianna Lopez, who knew nothing but agony in her 5 short MONTHS of life. She was murdered 9 years ago this month. Little Brianna was bitten (leaving purple toothmarked scars all over her body), swung by her legs, and thrown across the room by her mother, bitten, raped repeatedly and manually penetrated by both her father and uncle, slammed against the ceiling and let fall to the floor repeatedly, and left on the floor to suffer. Her ribs had been broken for weeks previous to her death and she had blood on her brain for weeks. Another uncle and her grandmother were fully aware of her abuse and did NOTHING to stop this (and they served less than two months in jail for this). Neither of her murderers (her father and uncle) even got life sentences. 

No one in Brianna's family would even come forward to claim her little body after the autopsy, so she was buried by the community of Las Cruces, New Mexico. Further details are in the petition overview, and the more one reads about her, the more heartbreaking, and infuriating, her story is. It must be told to the world so she won't be forgotten and that justice be served.
I also want to respectfully warn you that there is a large graphic image of Brianna's abuse (showing bruising on her face and head) attached with the petition, and it is of course very shocking and upsetting, but I know it's posted there to show the world what kind of monsters Stephanie Lopez and her family are to torture and destroy this precious baby. Let's make sure she stays behind bars (though I think she --and all of them- deserve MUCH WORSE punishment than that)! Here's the link:
**Though the petition has a specific signature number target, I read a post from the petition writer which said it is possible to keep signing once that target is met. The target hasn't been met yet, but when it is, please do still try and sign the petition. **
Please leave a comment below to let me know you've read this and signed for Baby Brianna. Thank you. <3

just made a mistake. Brianna's other uncle and grandmother were sentence to only 30 DAYS in jail.

Hi Nikki, welcome!! I'm glad you are here. :-) Thank you for your interest in signing the petition, and also for making a memorial for Baby Brianna! I wanted to write something there, but it said that it was already closed. I wonder what happened. :-(

The link to the petition is above. Sorry-- it probably got a bit lost in all that text! Here it is:

Then there are also two other petitions I found after posting this. Here are the links to those:

1. The legal removal of the metal cage and proper burial of Brianna Mariah Lopez

2. Life without the possibility of parole for Stephanie Lopez

I made a news "article" on Care2 that you can also read and note if you might. :)

Again, a big welcome to Care2 and thank you for caring about Brianna!

I'm sorry that I couldn't make those petition links clickable. But if you copy and paste, they should work. :-) Please let me know if they give you any trouble though.

I strongly agree with the petition to keep Stephanie Lopez incarcerated rather paroled in 2014. I also believe her parental rights should be terminated so that Baby Briana can rest in peace, honored, remembered and with a headstone.

I cant sleep after reading this story....I cant get these pics out of my head. The arresting officers should have just shot them and saved everyone the trouble.
