GoFundMe campaign for grieving illegal beaner mother Alexa Coria shut down after her arrest for the anchor baby's slaying - 11-month-old RaeLynn Martinez was killed - Juan Canales-Hernandez and Alexa Coria have been charged in the murder of this toddler
The campaign was to help the child’s grieving mother – or so the kindhearted donors thought. Then a second campaign formed, this one to help the child’s divorced father, sparking suspicions.
On Thursday, the mother was arrested in conjunction with the infant’s death. On Friday, her campaign was shut down, after GoFundMe deemed that the funds were being collected “for raising money for the defense or support of anyone alleged to be involved in criminal activity.”
It all began on Sept. 7, when police in Fort Collins, Colo., received a call about an injured child.
They arrived to find the girl’s mother, Alexa Coria, distraught. According to Coria, while she was in the bathroom, RaeLynn attempted to climb up to the seat of her high chair but fell off. The infant was bleeding from her mouth. When Coria picked her up, she became “dangly,” arms hanging limply at her sides.
Coria said she repeatedly placed the infant in water for about 30 to 45 minutes in an attempt to keep her awake. According to her boyfriend Juan Canales-Hernandez, Coria texted him to come over. The child was rushed to the hospital.
The story seemed like a heartbreaking accident, one that could happen to any mother.
Until the next day, when Coria changed her story, telling police that she was picking up another of her children from school, when Canales-Hernandez called to say the child was injured.
That change in story led Canales-Hernandez to admit he had been tossing the infant playfully in the air, when she hit her head. He placed RaeLynn in a high chair, but the child wasn’t secure, which lead Canales-Herandez to grow “frustrated,” according to an affidavit.
So he took another chair and smashed it into RaeLynn, knocking her to the ground.
