Michelle Jennae Pedroza
This is 20-year-old Michelle Jennae Pedroza.
While neither People You’ll See In Hell nor the police can prove anything for the moment, we would still like to look at what Michelle Pedroza is under suspicion of doing.
Over a month ago, Michelle Pedroza moved away from the house that she had lived in for a while, a house that was right next to another house that was rented to some of her female relatives. We have been told that Michelle Pedroza moved to Nevada to be closer to her mother. We’re not completely sure about the timing, but we know for certain that she left a few items there at the house in California.
Maybe she forgot the items. Maybe she left them on the back bumper while she was packing up the car, and forgot that they were there when she drove off.
That happened to my family once. My mom left my sister’s shoes on the top of the station wagon and didn’t realize that they were there until she and my dad heard a few thumps on the roof of the car when we got up to 60 and saw the shoes go flying off onto the interstate.
So it does happen to otherwise normal people. Forgetting things, I mean.
Michelle Pedroza has a child, a little 18-month-old girl. She didn’t forget the little girl, so don’t worry about that. Don’t get all tense on me. According to relatives, the little girl is just fine, despite being born in Michelle’s mother’s bathtub because Michelle didn’t realize that she hadn’t just gotten fatter, that she was, in fact, pregnant.
But the police think that Michelle Pedroza might have had another child. And they think that Michelle kind of left the other child behind, along with a blanket and some baby clothing.
On the 31st of March, 2008, two relatives of Michelle Pedroza, one of whom is named Rosa Pedroza, realized that Michelle may have forgotten something when they got up in the morning, looked outside at the house Michelle used to live in and saw a dog (a pit bull, of course) playing with what they thought was a doll or a rabbit. Going outside at about 10 in the morning, shortly after breakfast, the ladies went to clean the yard a bit and find out what they had seen the dog playing with.
The women found the dog, standing next to a baby’s blanket, some baby’s clothing and a badly decomposed baby that looked like the pit bull had been using it as a chew toy for quite some time.
The police were called, arrived and verified that yes, indeed, the baby was quite dead. An autopsy confirmed that the baby was dead, but really couldn’t figure out how long the baby had been dead or why the baby was dead.
The police had other questions on their mind as well, such as: “whose baby was it?”
This is the point in the story where everyone looks at Michelle Pedroza out of the corner of their eye and kind of scoots their chair away from her and there’s this awkward silence that seems to drag on and on while Michelle crosses her stubby little arms and says, “What?”
The authorities decided that Michelle Pedroza might have known about the baby, considering that it was her house that the baby’s remains had been found at. An arrest warrant was issued and served by U.S. Marshalls on the 3rd of April, 2008 at about 10:30 in the evening. Michelle decided to be uncooperative, barricading herself inside her mom’s house for more than an hour while authorities yelled out things like:
Let us in. We are not going to leave. We are the police.
Don’t worry, it all ended peacefully, without any tear gas. Michelle Pedroza was arrested and put in jail for a while. No charges were brought against her, however, and she was released on the 8th of April, 2008.
According to Daniel Aikin, a supervising deputy coroner at the Orange County coroner’s office, they’d like to get some of Michelle Pedroza’s DNA so that it can be compared with DNA samples taken from the dead baby. Once that happens…who knows?
Michelle Pedroza, as of the time of this writing, is free.
