Facebook group works to honor slain Tucson infant

Posted: Updated:

An update on a story the News 4 Tucson Investigators first broke back in February. An event is set for this weekend to honor the life of Wyllow Brewer.

The six-month old Tucson girl who investigators say was murdered earlier this year. As the four suspects charged in connection with her death await their next court date. Thousands of people are now part of the movement that is seeking justice for Wyllow.

“It really struck home for me. Just the thought of Wyllow being alone, and, I wanted to make sure that Wyllow was remembered,” said Sarah Grace, with the “Justice for Baby Wyllow” Facebook group.

Grace is a Tucson teacher, and a mother who told the News 4 Tucson Investigators, the case of Wyllow Brewer has had a big impact, not just on her, but on countless others.

“People who are all over the state, and people all over the world, really, are really wanting to be a part of this. This is something that really touched people in a big way,” Grace told the News 4 Tucson Investigators.

Prosecutors have charged four people in the case, including Wyllow's mother. They will be back in court for a status conference next month. In the meantime, members of the Facebook group continue to wear their purple “Justice for Baby Wyllow” wristbands to show their support...

“I think that it's an important message to send to people, that you can't get away with hurting babies, and hurting children. Not in this town. Not in this state,” Grace said.

As part of that message, members of the group raised more than $1,000 for a memorial bench that will be revealed this Saturday morning at 10:00 at Children’s Memorial Park, near Oracle and River roads.

“We have over 3,4000 people in our Facebook group, and lots of people are going to come out to help support Wyllow - this poor baby who died too soon,” Grace told the News 4 Tucson Investigators.

It’s not just the memorial bench and wristbands that the group has created to honor Wyllow. They have also installed pavers in her name at the Prevent Child Abuse Arizona state headquarters. 

“The main thing is, that we really just want to keep Wyllow's name alive. We want to keep her memory out there,” Grace said.

Saturday's bench reveal event takes place at 10:00 a.m. at Ramada #1 at Children's Memorial Park, located at 701 W. Edgewater Drive
