Arrests Made in Child Homicide Case
On Monday, November 16, 2020, Tracy Police Department were dispatched to the 3800 block of West Grantline Road responding to a call of a child not breathing. Police and medical personnel responded and the 4-year-old child was transported to a local hospital via ambulance. After life-saving efforts were administered, the child tragically passed. Medical personnel ruled the child died of blunt force trauma.
On the evening of Saturday, November 21, 2020, the child's mother and step-father, 24-year-old Camila Pizarro-Vergara of Tracy, and 25-year-old Oscar Munoz of Tracy, were arrested in the 1900 Block of Birchwood Lane. Mr. Munoz and Ms. Pizarro-Vergara were charged with violation of PC 273AB(a), 187 and two additional counts of 273A(a). They are being arraigned on November 24, 2020.
"No child should suffer any harm at any time. In order to prevent tragedies such as this, we need our community to report any suspicious behavior in regard to child abuse or domestic violence. As the stay-at-home order continues, we have to work together to protect our most vulnerable members. Please immediately report suspicious behavior to local law enforcement," said District Attorney Tori Verber Salazar.
