Arrest Made In Riley Rawlins Death

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 4th, 2012

As you know, Monica’s and Chris’ son and youthful Bigfooter Riley Rawlins’ death has been a subject of some concern here.

Now news has broken:

The suspect in the January 7, 2012, fatality accident, in which Riley Rawlins was killed while crossing the road at 9900 Royal Lane, was arrested at her home today and transported to Lew Sterrett Jail. She has been identified as Soraya Villanueva L/M/7-25-93. She will be charged with Criminally Negligent Homicide with a bond set at $125,000.

More details can be found in the local Texas media, including here.


Once again, I want to take a personal moment to ask us all to hug our children, and mourn for the loss of Riley. The victims of loss never forget.

Today is another of my son’s days of birth, and I send out another covert Happy Birthday to Desmond (43), and his family. Yes, I have three sons from my two marriages, born on Feb. 3rd, Feb. 4th, and Feb. 11th.

    You have helped put another notch into my genealogy theory that families have birthdays in certain clusters. I’ve been tracking it for several hundred years in my family – both sides.

  2. windigo responds:

    A young persons life lost, and another forever scarred in such tragic event. It’s such a horrific waste of life, and human potential. My heart goes out to both families, and I pray that all involved will find peace and healing.

  3. Kopite responds:

    Thanks for the update.

    Let’s all hope this selfish and inconsiderate woman gets due punishment. Nothing can bring Riley back, but this woman needs to be taught a very severe lesson.

    All too often motorists who kill get let off lightly. I hope this woman doesn’t.

    Thank you Loren for the ‘reminder’ to hug our children. I also pray for all involved and suffer due to this tragic death of Riley.
