Region: GLOBAL

Petition Background (Preamble):

Baby Brianna Lopez was 5 months old when she died as a result of prolonged abuse and sexual assault at the hands of her father, uncle and mother. Brianna Lopez's family were sentenced to prison for their crime. No one laid claim to this baby's body after she had died so the community of Las Cruces came forward to lay claim to Brianna and honour her at her funeral whilst the Dona Ana county donated the funds for her burial site.

Brianna's remaining family held a small and quick burial in a private cemetery, excluding other family members. No headstone was placed at her grave, only a marker was placed on the site then the burial mound raked flat. People of the community came to honour this baby by laying flowers. As the family wanted her death to be quiet they ordered a metal cage be placed over the burial site to discourage people from honouring her. The cage has surrounded baby Briannas resting place for eight years. Unfortunately the family has maintained this as it is a legal right.

This petition will go towards supporting the District Attorney of Dona Ana county, Amy Orlando in achieving what baby Brianna Lopez is entitled to, the removal of the cage and a proper burial with a headstone.
