LPSO said it was contacted on May 17 by hospital officials because the baby had stopped breathing. The hospital representatives also reported the injuries were consistent with those associated with Shaken Baby Syndrome. According to investigators, Gonzales died after being taken off life support over the weekend.

During the course of the investigation, it was determined that Hernandez is in the country illegally from Mexico.
