After 2-Year-Old Son Found Dead in Dumpster, Illegal Alien Gets 10 Years in Prison Plus Deportation

 March 27, 2023

After pleading guilty to child abandonment, the father of two-year-old Frankie Gonzales illegal alien, who was allegedly murdered by his mother and tossed in a trash dumpster in 2020, has received 10 years in prison.

31-year-old illegal alien, Lorenzo Gonzales, from Mexico, was first arrested and charged in Waco, Texas, with second-degree felony child endangerment in June 2020 after police reported he left his son, Frankie, in the care of the child’s mother who was barred from being left alone with her children. The child’s mother, 35-year-old Laura Jane Villalon, had a proven history of drug use.

Gonzales had been ordered, at the time, by Child Protective Services (CPS) not to leave his three children alone with their mother.  Gonzales, despite the CPS order, dropped all three of the children off unsupervised with Villalon.

Then on June 1, 2020, Villalon reported their son, Frankie, missing. Police said, the next day, that Villalon led them to her son’s body in a metal trash dumpster nearby a church. Police allege, that on May 28, 2020, the day that Gonzales dropped him off, Frankie died in Villalon’s care on. Allegedly, before reporting him missing, police said that Villalon disposed of the child’s body the following day.

Pleading guilty to child abandonment and injury to a child by omission, in a plea deal, Gonzales  will serve up to 10 years in prison, face arrest and deportation by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, when his sentence is finished. Villalon remains in McLennan County Jail, currently, as a plea deal is being negotiated.

Reportedly, the couples’ two surviving children, according to an affidavit, tested positive for meth and are now in the care of CPS officials. Drugs ruin lives – hopefully, these surviving children will find hope without the influence of neglectful or drug abusing parents. That children live or die this way is a national tragedy.

“When children can’t rely on their parents to meet their needs, they cannot develop a sense of safety, trust, or confidence. Trust is a colossal development issue. Without the learning of trust in our early years, we are set up to have a major handicap with believing in ourselves and feeling safe in intimate connections.”
