  • Details of Disappearance
    Alicia was last seen playing at a park in Pomona on May 7, 2000.

    Alicia's mother, Simona Denise Demery, and the mother's boyfriend, Jeffrey Jones were charged with her murder.

    Alicia's twin sister told investigators that the mother "wrapped Sissy in a jacket and put her in the drain."

    Demery and Jones regularly abused Alicia, and Alicia eventually died from untreated injuries associated with this physical abuse. Police found trace amounts of blood under a mattress in the defendantsí home, but no other forensic evidence was found.

    The defendants were convicted of second degree murder and child abuse, and was sentenced to 33 years in prison.

    Police have searched for the toddler's body, but found nothing.
