|Death: ||Jul. 9, 1993|
Luis, 3, was murdered in Brownsville, Texas on July 9, 1993. Veronica Zavala and Jose Alfredo Rivera were later charged with mudering him. Zavala pleaded guilty and testified against Rivera, who was sentenced to death. Prosecutors say Zavala lured Luis into Lincoln Park with Rivera, who molested him and strangled him with the elastic of his own underwear. Luis's naked body was found in a pond in the park the next day. After Rivera was sentenced, Zavala recanted her statements and claimed she was responsible for Luis's murder and Rivera had nothing to do with it. No one believed her. As of May 2004, Rivera is still on death row. All bio information is from the website Children Who Never Made It Home (http://www.free-webspace.biz/thevictims/ages.html).
