15 year old Cristian Cuellar-Gonzales died as result of a fight with an old boy. It is unknown why the two boys were unsupervised at the time of the fight. It is not the first death at the ranch. In 1991 another boy mentioned in this blog died as result of restraint by the staff at the ranch. Of course the state is once again looking at the ranch trying to determine if they want to risk a third death in the future.
But regardless of the outcome of this investigation, the fact remains that a family lost their boy. It is a tragedy impacting the entire family.
May he find peace where he is now.
