According to the Hill County Journal, Jennifer Bardeaux and Tadeo Graces Jr. were arrested on October 20th and charged with Tampering with Physical Evidence. The charges stem from an ongoing investigation by the Kerrville Police department in Kerr County Texas regarding the death of Gideon Barideaux, Jennifer’s two-year-old son.
The investigation began in August when police responded to a call about an injured child. Jennifer told the officers that the injuries were the result of a fall earlier in the day; however, officers and medical staff did not believe the injuries were consistent with the fall. Unfortunately, despite being taken to a local medical center and eventually being transferred to San Antonio University hospital by air ambulance, Gideon died as a result of the injuries three days later.
Over the course of the investigation, authorities interviewed both Jennifer and Tadeo regarding the matter and both maintained the child had been hurt because of a fall, a fact the forensic medical examiner’s reports have disputed. Cell phones belonging to both parties seemed to point to a different story when they were analyzed. An examination of their phones revealed Jennifer and Tadeo had each deleted a significant amount of content relating to the incident allowing offers to obtain arrest warrants for both parties based on this alleged evidence tampering.
