Jaslene Nicole Bryan
June 3, 2010 - September 5, 2013
Jaslene was born on June 3, 2010. When she was an infant, she had already been reported to the DCF hotline twice. She lived with her grandmother and it was alleged that her grandmother let the house become filthy and abused drugs. It was also said that the house had "no food for the children." Next, DCF was told that Jaslene's mother had beaten the children when they would get in trouble. Still, Jaslene remained in the care of her mother.
On September 5, 2013, Jaslene passed way after being beaten, although her mother was not the one who had hurt her. It was her mother's boyfriend, Elisamuel Pacheco. He was charged with first degree murder, capital sexual battery of a child less than twelve years old, and aggravated child abuse. Jaslene had been beaten and sexually abused. Her cause of death was blunt force trauma to her abdomen.
After Jaslene passed away, her siblings revealed that they were afraid of Elisamuel and that he had abused them as well. They also described some of the abuse Jaslene endured. She had been beaten and burnt with a lighter. They also said that Elisamuel got into fistfights with their mother. Elisamuel was charged with killing Jaslene, though at the time this is being posted, I am unable to find any more information about a trial or sentencing. If you know anything about this that you would like me to add to Jaslene's post, please inform me in the comments and I will add it. Thank you.
