Lorenzo, a child who excelled in soccer and was admired by friends and teammates, died on March 9, 2010, after being hit in the head with a sharp object. That night, he was in his home ( an upscale area in Puerto Rico), along with his mother Ana Cacho, his two sisters (ages 13 and 5) and two men who were visiting Ana Cacho until well past midnight. In a radio interview she gave before listening to her lawyers advice about keeping silent, Ana Cacho said of the evening: that the boy had been playing soccer, then was taken to a fast food restaurant by his father and brought home around 8:30 that evening. According to Ana, Lorenzo showered and started doing homework, but fell asleep on his notebook. Ana said she put all three children in bed by 9:30 p.m. She didn't mention however the men that arrived later that evening.
Lorenzo’s younger sister told Ana that Lorenzo was bleeding on her. She then went to check up on her son yet waited an hour and a half before taking Lorenzo to an emergency room. Odd, what type of mother would wait that long. I would think it would happen instantly. He died later in the hospital from what the ME determined to be blunt force injuries to the head.
Investigators found no evidence of forced entry in the Cacho residence, but they did find a pipe and an empty crack capsule in the house. Forensics found Ana’s DNA traces on the pipe. Months passed before any action was taken against Ana. People believe that the Police Department, led by Jose Figueroa Sancha, seems to cater a special treatment for Ana. People seem to agree that, if the crime had been committed in a humble and marginalized sector, the story would have been otherwise: by this date someone would have been prosecuted.
During the rest of the radio interview, Ana focused on the acts of her ex husband and father of her three children, whom she considers a chronic jealous man and a stalker who would even get on the roof of her own house to spy her. The public perception is that the questions and the editing of the interview were accommodated to favor Ana , who in the eyes of the public opinion is hiding the truth.
