Albuquerque, New Mexico–On March 15, a mother found the body of a boy buried under the swings of Alvarado Park. For days the police asked the public for any information that could help not only identify the boy, but also aid in piecing together the puzzle of how a young boy ends up buried in the sand of a public park. A composite of the boy was released as well as pictures of the clothes he was wearing. Now the identity of the boy has been discovered, as well as his murderer. What happened to that boy was a bit more heinous than I could have imagined.
The boy is 3-year-old is Ty Toribio and his murderer is his own mother, Tiffany Toribio. Police arrested the 23-year-old woman after family members contacted them stating that the description of the boy on the news matched the description of her son. She confessed to killing her son, and the story she told was pretty heartbreaking.
Toribio and her son were kicked out of a friends house in the early morning hours of May 15. She and Ty went to the nearby Alvarado Park where the two lay down in the sand after the sprinkler system shut off. Once Ty fell asleep, police say that Toribio decided that she did not want Ty growing up like she did – unwanted. So using her hands, she covered his mouth and nose and suffocated him. But then she did something absolutely unbelievable. Racked with guilt, she used CPR to revive him. Once he began breathing, she changed her mind and killed him again. She then buried him under the climbing gym’s hanging bridge.
“What makes this story especially sad was when asked the reason why she took Ty’s life, Tiffany said that she did not want him to grow up with no one caring about him the same way that she had grown up with no one caring about her,” said Police Chief Ray Schultz.
It is being reported that she has attempted suicide while in jail. She is a single mother with no record who had recently been kicked out of her mother’s home and her friend’s apartment, reportedly she withheld affection from Ty and did not pay attention to him. Julie Gonzalez, who lives near the park, said the boy’s mother was “always partying”.
