In the late hours of May 23rd, 2013, paramedics in Palmdale, California, responded to a call about an 8-year-old boy who wasn't breathing. Most parents would be in hysteria if their child were put in this situation – but Gabriel’s mother, Pearl Fernandez, and her boyfriend Isauro Aguirre were both agitated, repeatedly telling the first responders that it happened when the brothers were playing instead. However, the injuries on the little boy’s body told a different story. This is the story of the torture and murder of 8-Year-Old Gabriel Fernandez, and you are listening to Murder in America.
