“Tori” Sandoval was a beautiful, bright and perfect little 2
year-old girl who died tragically on Easter Sunday morning,
April 24, 2011. She had lived with a loving foster family for 8
months that were certified to adopt her should
reunification fail with her bio parents. On September 1,
2010, Tori (at 18 months old) was taken from the Sedgewick home
and placed back with her biological mother and father. Her
foster parents, friends and even some family members begged DCFS
social workers, supervisors, and lawyers for months to try and
get them to re-examine Tori’s case, but to no avail.
Tragically, on Easter morning, Vyctorya Sandoval was pronounced
dead at 3:30 am at Loma Linda Hospital. Authorities had tried to
revive her since the previous evening at 9:15 pm when she was
found in Pomona with no heartbeat. A criminal case against
Tori's biological parents is ongoing.
