Hialeah, 13-year-old who stabbed his mother, is heard in a new 911 call from NBC 6 South Florida

A 13-year-old boy accused of stabbing his mother to death in their Hialeah apartment speaks to a police dispatcher shortly after the killing in a new 911 call released Tuesday.

The fatal knife attack occurred on October 12th at an apartment at 211 West 79th Place.

Hialeah police said the teen stabbed his 39-year-old mother in her bedroom next to a crib where the woman’s newborn baby was sleeping.

The heavily redacted 911 call released Tuesday details the moments the teen reported the murder.

At various points in the call, the dispatcher can be heard asking the teen why he killed his mother, and the teen’s answers are redacted.

“You stabbed her in the neck? “Okay, where else did you stab her other than slitting her neck?” the dispatcher asks at one point.

When the dispatcher learns that the teenager stabbed his mother, he asks about the newborn.

“Where is your sister?” She asks.

“She’s lying in the crib and sleeping,” the teenager replies.

“How old is your sister?” the dispatcher asks.

“She’s only a week old,” he replies.

“And you didn’t touch her?” asks the dispatcher.

“No, I didn’t touch her, I didn’t want to touch my sister,” the teenager replies.

The fatal knife attack occurred on October 12th at an apartment at 211 West 79th Place.

On the call, the teen doesn’t know the address of the apartment and spends several minutes looking for an envelope with the address on it while the dispatcher tries to get more information.

“I need to know if your mother is breathing,” she asks.

“She’s dead, miss,” the teenager replies.

The teen tells the dispatcher that he put the knife he used in his room and that he grabbed one of his stepfather’s guns.

“I wanted to shoot myself, but I didn’t want to, I didn’t want to,” the teenager said. “I loaded it, I pulled the slide back, but I didn’t fire.”

Later in the conversation, the dispatcher asks again if the teen’s mother is OK.

“I have to know it. Do you think we can help your mother?” the dispatcher asks.

“Miss, she’s dead,” the teen replies, later telling the dispatcher, “I have more family members, they can take care of my sister.”

The teen also tells the dispatcher that he took photos of the killing and sent them to friends.

“I took photos and told my friends about them, is that bad?” asks the teenager.

“You sent your friends pictures of what you did?” The dispatcher replies.

“Yes,” the teen says, adding that he sent them to an online friend with whom he plays video games.

“I didn’t delete the pictures from my phone, I sent them to him and told him I was sorry,” the teenager said.

Police said the baby was the teen’s half-sister and the mother’s husband, the teen’s stepfather, was a truck driver who was out of state at the time of the murder but was on his way home.

In the 911 call, the teen tells the dispatcher that the stepfather is trying to call him and is calling his mother’s phone.

“I’m really sad, I’m really sad,” the teenager said.

Officers arrive at the apartment and knock on the door, causing the teenager to become frightened.

“Miss, are you going to kill me?” he asks.

“No, we’re here to help you, we’re here to help your family,” the dispatcher replies before officers can be heard taking the teen into custody.

According to police, the baby was found unharmed in the crib next to the body of the mother, who was found dead from multiple stab wounds.

Neighbors identified the woman as Irina Garcia and said she had given birth to the baby just days earlier.

The teen, an eighth-grader at iMater Academy in Hialeah, may be charged as an adult with second-degree murder.

“We heard from the family that he was a good kid, an honor student in school, no history of mental health issues,” Hialeah police spokesman Eddie Rodriguez said after the murder. “This is heartbreaking, I would never have imagined something like this, that a 13-year-old child would take his mother’s life. It’s a very sad story.”
