Search for a better life ends in horror

By Bill Torpy and Alexis Stevens

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Atlanta, GA

Early evening at the River Ridge apartment complex in Canton is a swarm of activity. Residents come and go, walking dogs, checking mail, unloading groceries.

As it turns out, police say, Jorelys’ killer also was close by, lurking unnoticed by others.

Sometime around 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 2, just minutes after Jorelys left the playground and went home to get a drink, police said, the new maintenance man either lured the friendly child or dragged her to a vacant apartment nearby, police said. There, he beat, raped and stabbed her to death, authorities said.

Three days later, her body was found stuffed in a trash compactor.

The alleged snatching and killing of a child by a stranger is among the rarest of crimes. That, along with the grisly circumstances of the killing and the fact that her body was tossed away and compacted like yesterday’s trash, sent waves of revulsion, then fear through the community.

Cherokee sheriff: Mistake made during Rivera investigation

Two Cherokee County Sheriff's deputies will face disciplinary action for failing to immediately report blood they saw in a vacant apartment while a search was underway for missing 7-year-old Jorelys Rivera.

The two uniformed deputies, one a trainee and another a 3-year veteran, were assisting in the search for the girl who had disappeared Dec. 2 from the River Ridge apartment complex playground.

Rivera's body was found three days later in an industrial trash compactor. Police say she had been sexually assaulted, stabbed and beaten.

Sheriff: Jorelys case required outside help

By Alexis Stevens
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Atlanta, GA

By the time a massive search was under way for a missing Canton girl, the 7-year-old was likely dead. But two weeks after the first-grader was last seen alive, questions linger regarding the police investigation that ultimately led to the girls' body.

The case of missing Jorelys Rivera was not one local police should have handled alone, Cherokee County Sheriff Roger Garrison told the AJC Thursday. Canton mayor Gene Hobgood said he wants an outside consultant to determine if the city's police department properly handled the case.

Deputy disciplined in Rivera investigation

By Alexis Stevens
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Atlanta, GA

The Cherokee County deputy that failed to report seeing drops of blood during the Jorelys Rivera investigation must undergo additional training and will face a 36-hour suspension if he has any further discipline issues, Sheriff Roger Garrison said Friday afternoon.

"I feel very badly about having to discipline my officer that was there trying very hard to find the little girl," Garrison said. "This is a great officer. We maintain he was doing exactly what he was instructed to do."

Jorelys' Law

Post by terrilf on Sun Dec 18, 2011 10:15 pm

Please help support Jorelys' Law to prevent small town police departments from being capable of decisions pertaining to the investigations of missing children without proper training! I know in my heart something is amiss about the hours after the initial 911 call and the time of this child's death.

I am confident, if legislation were to require responders of missing child reports to have proper training, it may save a child's life! Thank you for your support!

Estee, you are on the wrong thread. Jorelys Rivera was found a few days after reported missing. After a funeral service in Canton, GA, she was buried in Puerto Rica.

Maybe you meant to post this on the Jhessye Shockley thread?

Confusion stymied Jorelys Rivera investigation

6:56 p.m. Wednesday, December 21, 2011

By Andria Simmons
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Atlanta, GA






An internal affairs report released Wednesday by the Cherokee County Sheriff reveals a state of confusion prevailed during the second day of the search for 7-year-old Jorelys Rivera, before GBI officials were called in to assist local authorities.

Not only did two deputies fail to report seeing blood in a vacant unit that was later determined to be the crime scene, two city of Canton firefighters also did not report seeing the blood during a separate search of the unit earlier that day.

The report provides the clearest picture yet of how the search for Jorelys unfolded after she was reported missing and explains the delayed reporting of the blood discovery.

Canton Police Chief recounts search for Jorelys Rivera

By Andria Simmons and Jeffry Scott
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Atlanta, GA

5:03 a.m. Friday, January 13, 2012

Canton Police officers were looking for a child who might have been hiding or who had perhaps gone to a friend's house without her mother's permission after getting a call last month that 7-year-old Jorelys Rivera was missing.

It would be three days before the grim truth was confirmed: Somewhere between her home and the playground at the River Ridge Apartments, Jorelys was snatched.

A friendly child with an independent streak, Jorelys had a history of running away, according to Canton Police Chief Jeff Lance. He talked exclusively and in detail with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution this week about his department’s response to the crime and revealed, for the first time, details of the investigation that have yet to be made public.

Kristen Stancil, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Corrections, confirmed late Thursday that 20-year-old Ryan Brunn was found unresponsive in his cell at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson at 4:15 p.m. He was taken to a local hospital and was pronounced dead at 5:37 p.m. The case has been referred to the GBI for further investigation.

I just hope he committed suicide, and someone else didn't kill him. I also hope none of the guards at the prison did anything wrong.

CANTON | Police chief resigns in wake of Jorelys Rivera report

CANTON, Ga. - Canton Police Chief Jeff Lance has resigned from his position after an outside investigation found that police in Canton violated their own policies while investigating the disappearance of a 7-year-old girl whose body was found days later in a trash compactor at her apartment complex.

A 19-page review delivered to city officials Wednesday reveals an "absence of leadership by the agency head" and an assumption that the disappearance of Jorelys Rivera was routine.

Canton police chief quits in wake of critical report

6:42 p.m. Thursday, January 19, 2012

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Atlanta, GA

By Jeffry Scott and Andria Simmons
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Atlanta, GA


Canton Police Chief Jeff Lance resigned Thursday after a scathing independent report said he and his department mishandled the initial investigation into last month's disappearance and gruesome murder of 7-year-old Jorelys Rivera.

Canton Mayor Gene Hobgood, who asked for the review last month after criticisms of the department's search for Jorelys, called the 19-page report by LaGrange Police Chief Chief Louis Dekmar "indicting."

Lance, who had said last week he didn't expect the report to cost him his job, didn't return calls seeking comment Thursday.

Apartment maintenance man Ryan Brunn, 20, pleaded guilty Tuesday to molesting and killing Jorelys and was sentenced to life in prison. Brunn killed himself Thursday at the state prison in Jackson.

He was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

ATLANTA – In an abrupt end to a disturbing saga, a 20-year-old maintenance man apparently killed himself in a Georgia prison two days after pleading guilty to molesting and killing a little girl.

Ryan Brunn's death in his cell was an apparent suicide, the state Department of Corrections said, but it was still under investigation Friday. Corrections spokeswoman Kristen Stancil wouldn't comment on how he died or whether prison officials had taken precautionary measures to monitor him, such as putting him on suicide watch...........

Child-killer hanged himself with sweatshirt






By Andria Simmons and Jeffry Scott
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Atlanta, GA

The admitted killer of 7-year-old Jorelys Rivera was not under a suicide watch when he used his sweatshirt to hang himself in a prison cell, state corrections officials said Friday.

Ryan Brunn, 20, was being held in segregation at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson while being processed into the state prison system two days after his guilty plea. He was found unresponsive in his cell around 4 p.m. Thursday and pronounced dead after being taken to an area hospital.

Mental health staff at the Jackson prison evaluated him on Wednesday and opted not to place him on suicide watch, according to Kristen Stancil, a Department of Corrections spokeswoman.

Autopsy confirms Georgia child-murderer hung himself

By the CNN Wire Staff

Updated 5:01 PM EST, Fri January 20, 2012

Atlanta (CNN) -- Autopsy results released Friday revealed that Ryan Brunn, the Georgia man who this week admitted murdering a 7-year-old girl, committed suicide by hanging himself in a prison cell, a state agency said.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation, in a news release, said the autopsy indicated that Brunn died of "ligature hanging and the manner of death (was) suicide."

The 20-year-old hung himself with his sweatshirt, investigators determined. A medical examiner didn't find any "other significant trauma on Brunn's body."

GBI: Brunn Used Sweatshirt to Kill Self

The Department of Corrections said today that Ryan Brunn was not under suicide watch.

January 20, 2012

Ryan Brunn, the 20-year-old maintenance worker who confessed on Tuesday to killing 7-year-old Jorelys Rivera, hanged himself, according to one of his court-appointed attorneys and the spokesman for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

"My understanding was that he may have used his jumpsuit and hanged himself," David L. Cannon Sr. said. "That's what I know."

At 2:08 p.m. today, GBI spokesman John Bankhead confirmed that Brunn hanged himself with his prison-issued sweatshirt.

Atleast, no one will be charged with his death, and he got what he deserved. Maybe he just couldn't live with himself for the rest of his life.

Jorelys Rivera's killer speaks: GBI releases polygraph video
By Jeffry Scott
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Atlanta, GA

The day after the body of 7-year-old Jorelys Rivera was found in a trash compactor and the day before he was charged with her murder, 20-year-old maintenance man Ryan Brunn repeatedly told investigators he knew nothing about the child's death and the disposal of her body.

Brunn committed suicide in state prison last week, two days after he pleaded guilty to the Dec. 2 murder and sexual molestation of Jorelys at the River Ridge apartments in Canton.

His denials were revealed in a video of a GBI interview that took place five days after she disappeared. The video was released Thursday.

Killer's body language analyzed


Atlanta (CNN) -- The day after little Jorelys Rivera's mangled body was found in a suburban Atlanta trash compactor, Ryan Brunn sat in a stark room for a police interview. He began with confidence, but ended with trouble.

Keith Sitton, a special agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, hooked up the jeans-clad Brunn to a polygraph machine. Then, he fired off a series of questions to the 20-year-old maintenance man. A videotape of Brunn's polygraph test was released Thursday.

GBI releases Ryan Brunn's confession tape

Posted: Feb 08, 2012 7:43 AM CST Updated: Feb 08, 2012 7:43 AM CST

Atlanta, GA (WXIA) - When Ryan Brunn pleaded guilty to the murder of seven-year-old Jorelys Rivera, he told the court in detail how he abducted and killed her.


Almost immediately after that plea, Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents Dustin Hamby and Brian Whidby spent more than two hours picking Brunn's brain, trying to learn as much as they could about him, to help them in future cases.

After several minutes of repeated questions and coaxing Ryan Brunn finally admitted that he had fondled children before he killed Jorelys Rivera.

"I guess I did it more than one time. I guess I did it a few times but it wasn't in the same day."

He says he was always attracted to children. I'm sorry it took Jorelys' violent rape and murder to kill himself. He wasn't sorry about that though, he was sorry he got caught and he couldn't face prison. At least there's one down that can't hurt another child.

Jorelys Rivera's mother sues apartment complex

By Alexis Stevens
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Atlanta, GA

February 13, 2012

The mother of a murdered 7-year-old girl contends a Cherokee County apartment complex hired a maintenance man with a history of crimes against children. And that man, Ryan Brunn, confessed to the brutal killing of Jorelys Rivera days after her body was found in a trash compactor.

Joselinne Rivera, Jorelys's mother, claims that the River Ridge at Canton complex failed to do an adequate background check on Brunn in a civil lawsuit filed Feb. 9 in Fulton County State Court.
