Isaac Hernandez

Crimes: Child Abuse, Neglect, Murder

This is a brief story about the brief life of an unloved infant.

Sylys Hernandez lived to be almost 3 months old when his pain-filled life came to an end. The poor, helpless infant was brutalized and neglected to death. The culprit was the sperm donor, Isaac Matthew Hernandez, of Nampa, Idaho.

I cannot find out why this poor baby was left in the “care” of his “father”. I can’t find out what happened with his mother. I can’t find out if social workers had been involved. What I do know is Sylys Hernandez stood a better chance of living if he’d been left abandoned on a stranger’s doorstep.

In the almost 3 months that Sylys Hernandez lived, he suffered from 26 rib fractures, multiple leg fractures and a torn frenulum (the tissues between the lip and the gum). Baby Sylys was covered in bruises, including on his genitals, and he weighed only 2.2 pounds when he died of “failure to thrive”.

In Sylas Hernandez’s brief life, he was starved, punched, pinched, and slapped. He was squeezed so hard his ribs snapped. He had a bottle shoved into his wee mouth so forcefully that his frenulum suffered a bad tear. He had his legs twisted until they too broke.

How the hell does a baby thrive when he’s being tortured and starved like that? Baby Sylys died on December 30, 2014, bless his wee heart. RIP, Sylys.

Isaac Matthew Hernandez, 26, was arrested 8 months later, on August 4, 2015. He was not charged with murder. He was not charged with causing the baby’s death. He was charged with 5 felony counts of injury to a child, and 4 enhancements for infliction of great bodily harm. He was held on a $1 million bond.

In June 2016, Isaac Matthew Hernandez, that evil baby killer, pled guilty to only 3 felony counts of injury to a child. In exchange for those guilty pleas, the other charges were dismissed.

Felony injury to a child is punishable in Idaho by up to 10 years in prison. On August 23, 2016, the hellbeast Isaac Matthew Hernandez was sentenced to 27 years in prison.

“This is one of the saddest and worst cases of child abuse that I have ever seen in well-over 30 years of practicing law,” Judge George Southworth is quoted as saying. “I’ve never come across so many instances of abuse and such severe abuse of an infant.”

The deputy prosecutor, Erica Kallin, said, “The thought of a grown man treating an innocent child with such hate and neglect leaves me with a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach.”

IMO, Isaac Matthew Hernandez does not deserve to see freedom again. His sadistic brutality brought about his newborn son’s “failure to thrive” and subsequent death. I just wish he could’ve faced murder charges.

This POS, hellbeastly baby killer will only be middle-aged when he’s released. I hope and pray that his crimes will never be forgotten, and that he will not be allowed to live in anonymity. He doesn’t deserve another chance at a family. He willfully destroyed a precious life, and for that he should have to spend his life suffering the consequences. news article – arrest

    God this is awful and makes me so sick and tearful. How could a grown ass man do this to a precious baby. That baby did nothing wrong and deserved nothing but the love of a good father (not a monster who tortured him to death) and to grow up in a loving family and to have a good life. Gosh this sick puke of a man should have every bone in is body broke all at once by his prison pals and then he might know how this poor baby suffered and the hands of him. Burn in hell Hernandez your a monster.

    Tragic Sad and Heartrending

    Murder Warrants the Death Penalty and such Sadistic Cruelty to a Baby
    Warrants the Death Penalty as Well with Public Flogged as Well

    Obnoxious Sicko anyone who does Commit such Cruelty against a Baby

    In the Thugs and Murderers Paradise of UK the Scum Isle Scumbag would of Probably got less than 10 Years too many Do Gooders in the UK

  3. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Should of been Charged with Murder the Sicko

    His Evil Actions caused the Death of that Baby

    There should be NO Plea Bargains for Murdering Child Abusing Scum

    NO Release from Prison Either

    Cleo you made me cry. That poor little baby deserved a happy life instead of torture and death. R.I.P. Sylys.

  5. bulldoggy says:

    I don’t understand. To me, not feeding a baby isn’t failure to thrive, it’s starvation and that’s murder. He should’ve been charged with murder and been sentenced to spending the entirety of his useless life behind bars.

    I am really disgusted by this. Where was the mother? Where was ANYONE else in the family while this was going on? Where there no grandparents? It takes a very cowardly man to do this to a newborn infant. How could a parent (or anyone) snap a baby’s legs or arms and beat it and listen to its screams, and not be affected by it? This man needs to have the same thing done to him in prison that he did to his son! I hope the other inmates find out what he did. Even the hardest murderers look down on a child killer!! Rot in Hell Isaac Hernandez!!

    Cleo, I just looked up this case and found out about the mother of this poor baby. She was incarcerated when she had the baby, and was incarcerated when the abuse took place. The baby was left in the custody of his father while the mother was incarcerated. Although she was not directly involved in the abuse, because she was locked up, she was indirectly involved. She should’ve been home with her baby, not out breaking the law! If she would’ve been home, maybe this wouldn’t have happened. Here is the link to the article I got the info from. Thanks and keep up the awesome work, Cleo!!

    Sylys has been on my mind since I’d read his story earlier this week.
    I’ve cried for baby because of what he went through. I have a daughter around the age Sylys had die and I can’t imagine doing that to her. I don’t think I could ever forget about him, that poor baby. There is a go fund me account in his name for a Headstone,anything helps.

  9. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Definitely an Arsehole this Bastard whose Evil Behaviour led to the
    Death of this Baby

  10. wildchild says:

    What is so terrible, is the law has a stipulation called three for one. Which means that this scum with be out in seven years. Just like the killers of Briana Lopez. The sentences are way too much lenient.

  11. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Should be One Sentence For Each Offence

  12. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Sickening that Society Cares More For Murderers and Child Abusers than
    the Homeless a Scumiety

  13. C. Ullman says:

    Mother was in prison.

  14. Bengalpuss says:

    What gets me is the fact that some people actually seen this poor baby being subjected to abuse, and said nothing, so the heat should be on them also. That sweet baby boy didn’t stand a chance, with his methamphetamine mom and callous sperm donor.

  15. DecentPeopleOnly says:


    I Oppose Countries becoming a load of Drug Zombies Drug Addiction Ruins Communities

    It is Sickening Indeed when People see a Baby/Child being Subjected to
    Abuse and then do Nothing about it which is Reprehensible

  16. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Do Gooders are so Cluelessness they Certainly do NO Good in this World

    There are NO Excuses about Deprivation in Childhood Alcohol or Drug Addiction for Abusing and Murdering a Baby it is Just Evil Fullstop

  17. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    There are Decent People and There are Scum

    Any Liberal Left Do Gooder that Tries to Condone Paedophilia or Defend
    Paedophiles is Scum

  18. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Judges that give Suspended ” Sentences ” to Paedophiles Need to be

    Rights For Victims Not For Villains

  19. DecentPeopleOnly says:

    Sympathy must Always be with the Victims Not with the Villains

    Especially with Regards to the matter of Child Abuse

    They have shown how Despicable they are just like Suspended ” Sentences ”
    for them are

    Better a Society in which Children can grow up without Suffering such
    Abuse than a Degenerate Liberal Society which in it’s Evil protects the
    Villain and Ignores the Victim

    That poor angel was tortured to death. The same should happen to that scum
