Is Something Fishy About Briant Rodriquez Being Kidnapped?


Most likely you have already heard the story. Two armed robbers burst into a modest Los Angeles California home, tie up the mom and siblings but abduct the three-year-old boy. Furthermore, gunmen tell the mother they will take the child to Mexico and kill him.

Briant Rodriguez's mother has told detectives in San Bernadino the story. But most are left scratching their heads trying to figure out why Briant Rodriguez was the target of the kidnappers. The boy's mother and her four other children were spared. The gunmen searched the house for around 15 to 20 minutes and left with the child and only a small amount of money.

After the robbers left, the eight-year-old brother managed to get free and help the rest of the family escape. Rosa Millana has made a public plea for her son's safe return. Raul Rodriguez, the boys father, was at work during the robbery. To our knowledge, there has been no ransom demand and no further contact with the gunmen.

Lt Rick Ells has described the abduction as "extraordinarily unusual". A more accurate description may be bazaar.
Update May 18, 2009: No matter how bazaar, it is great news that Briant was found on May 15, 2009 wandering the streets in Mexicali by a police officer. The police turned him over to a child services. The boy's mother went to Calexico and identified her son. ABC7 reported the happy reunion.
Update May 19, 2009: Liberato Vega, 30, and Israel Moreno, 28, are suspects in the kidnapping of 3-year-old Briant Rodriguez. Both men are believed to still be in Mexico. Both have previously been deported from the United States as illegal immigrants. Warrants were issued!

Something smells fishy. I wonder if this is some type of payback?

What if these thugs broke into the wrong home? What a nightmare for this family. This sounds like a very well-planned abduction, probably drug related methinks... God bless this little boy and keep him safe.

Video of two possible suspeccts buying duct tape has been shown on the t.v. They even got a description of a green bronco they were driving. But the suspects have slipped away...

I'm baffled by this case. However this is what I think may be the reason for the abduction. It appears to be an act of a Gang initiating 2 new members. In my studies of gangs they have the new wanna be members carry out horrific acts. Such as daring kidnappings and murders, the riscker the better rating they get....The home was picked randomly. Possiblly just days before.

Was the father involved in some kind of drug deal with these men? They don't just come into someones house for no reason. Wrong home or not, they took the child. an innocent little boy, AN ANGEL!

SOMETHING IS DEFINITELY WRONG HERE.

I believe that someone owed alot of money.

GOD BLESS THIS LITTLE BOY AND KEEP HIM IN YOUR PRAYERS.

It could be random. It could be a mistake. It could have something to do with the big brother. Perhaps pay back. The investigation continues. The longer the lad is gone, the worse it appears his fate.

The young lad is still being checked out in a hospital. The perpetrators shaved his head and apparently left him to wander on his own.
