On the morning of Wednesday, March 18, 2020, police in Bakersfield, California responded to an apartment on a report of an eight-year-old child not breathing. Although Ger’Mya Alexander was rushed to the hospital, she died of her injuries the same day. Her mother’s boyfriend, 37-year-old Clint Mason, who had been caring for Ger’Mya when she was fatally injured, fled on foot and was apprehended the next morning.
This is the story of a smart, sweet, caring little girl who adored her granny and sometimes got in trouble at school for talking too much. It’s also the story of her unnecessary, brutal death at the hands of a man she should have been able to trust to protect her.
This is the heartbreaking story of Ger’Mya Alexander.
