Child Death Investigation - Assistance Needed
August 09, 2021
No its not Friday but this is by far the most important case we have ever posted here.
From our friends at the Kerrville Police Department:
Today, August 9, 2021 marks the one year anniversary of the passing of Gideon Barideaux. The Kerrville Police Department, along with other law enforcement agencies and the 216th District Attorney’s Office, continue to actively investigate this child homicide.
On Thursday, August 6th, 2020 at about 9:00 p.m., Kerrville Police Department officers responded to the 3300 block of Legion Drive regarding a child with injuries. The child, Gideon Barideaux, 2 years of age, was reportedly injured in an accidental fall. He was transported by air ambulance to University Hospital in San Antonio. Despite the best efforts of hospital staff, Gideon died on August 9, 2020.
Investigators, as well as medical staff, recognized Gideon’s injuries were not consistent with an accident. The Kerrville Police Department immediately began an investigation in order to determine how Gideon became injured, and to identify those responsible. Jennifer Barideaux and her boyfriend, Tadeo Garces Jr were interviewed by KPD Criminal Investigations Unit investigators, and both maintained that the child’s injuries were the result of an accidental fall.
On August 14, 2020, the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office determined Gideon’s manner of death was a homicide. Forensic medical experts reported Gideon’s injuries could not have been caused in the manner Barideaux and Garces claimed.
Kerrville Police Department investigators, working closely with the 216th District Attorney’s Office, multiple state and federal agencies, and the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office, continued a painstakingly detailed investigation into Gideon’s death. As a result of the investigation, KPD investigators obtained arrest warrants for Barideaux and Garces for Tampering with Physical Evidence.
On October 20, 2020, both Barideaux and Garces were arrested and charged with Tampering with Physical Evidence, a Third Degree Felony. Barideaux invoked her Fifth Amendment rights and continues to refuse to cooperate in this investigation into her child’s homicide. A formal indictment in the 216th District Court has not yet taken place.
On July 26, 2021 in the 216th District Court in Kerrville, Kerr County, Texas, the defense for Garces requested a plea deal for the offense of Tampering with Evidence. After consultation between the 216th District Attorney’s Office, Kerrville Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Unit and the family of Gideon Barideaux, a plea offer was made and accepted by Garces. The Honorable Judge Pattillo has set a sentencing date of September 30, 2021.
This case remains under investigation. The Kerrville Police Department continues to conduct interviews and pursue leads related to this offense, and anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the Kerrville Police Department or Kerr County Crime Stoppers at 830-896-8477, please reference Case # 2001577 when leaving a tip. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and charges filed on the person(s) responsible for the death of Gideon Barideaux.
