N4T Investigators: Facebook group seeks 'Justice for Baby Wyllow'

Posted: Updated:

It's now been more than seven months since six-year-old Wyllow Brewer took her last breath. Authorities say she was the victim of child abuse. Four people including Wyllow's own mother, Kylie Brewer, were charged in connection with her death. Now, that number is down to three.

“Honestly, I felt sick, and my heart hurt for this,” said Sarah Grace, a Tucson mom, and part of the ‘Justice for Baby Wyllow’ Facebook group.

Grace told the News 4 Tucson Investigators, she and others, can't understand why charges against Briana Raidy, of the four people originally charged with Wyllow’s death, were dismissed earlier this month.

“I think a lot of us who follow the case really closely were shocked this happened, and kind of left with a bunch of questions as to how something like this could have occurred,” Grace told the News 4 Tucson Investigators.

In a motion filed in Pima County Superior Court, a deputy Pima County attorney cited “prosecutorial discretion.” The charges were dismissed without prejudice meaning, they could be re-filed.

“I trust that they know what they're doing, and my hope is that they have a vision as to how this will play out, and that ultimately this decision to drop the charges is going to actually lead to a stronger conviction of the people who are ultimately responsible,” Grace said.

For now, members of the group will continue to remember Wyllow, through purple wristbands, and a Wyllow memorial bench located on Tucson’s northwest side in Children's Memorial Park.

“We want to make sure that justice is served, and we're going to keep her name out there any way we can; through letter writing, through the Facebook group, and through other things,” Grace said. “I just want people to remember that this was a baby. This was a human being, and this was somebody that couldn't defend herself.” she added.

Meantime, the three people who are still facing charges in connection with Wyllow's death are due back in court next month.
