GRAND ISLAND, NEW YORK — September 25, 2018
The victim's mother, 26-year-old Brianna Valenti, is the prime suspect in her murder, and is facing several charges including reckless assault of a child. Investigators say Valenti is an acquaintance of the little girl's biological father.
According to the Erie County Sheriff's Office, the woman initially mocked the 2 year old child, and then beat her for keeping her awake . The girl was immediately rushed to the hospital on September 10 after she reportedly passed out and was having trouble breathing at a home on Grand Island. According to deputies, a subsequent investigation revealed she sustained injuries that rendered her unconscious.
The little girl was held in intensive care at Oishei Children's Hospital , but died last Saturday.
According to her Facebook page, the woman lives in Buffalo (New York) and she is a self-professed mommy blogger on the Wicked & Wild platform. On social networks, Valenti reposted news about the murder of a pregnant woman and her 2 little daughters, which accuse the head of the family of the crime.
The investigation also revealed that the woman is actively involved in the life of the blog and often advises parents to be vigilant and love their children.
She is currently being held at the Erie County Holding Center on $150,000 bail. The investigation is ongoing.
