PostSubject: Jozlynn Mari Martinez (2) R.I.P.   Sun Feb 28, 2010 9:24 am


Amber Alert issued for 2-year-old Jozlynn Mari Martinez


A Michigan statewide Amber Alert has been issued for 2-year-old Jozlynn Mari Martinez after she disappeared from her home on February 22, 2010 at 11:00 p.m. The Grand Rapids Police Department is handling the case and Jozlynn has been listed with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. (click here to see her poster)


Jozlynn’s mother, Consuela Martinez, 21, states that she last saw her child when she was in bed and that when she awoke at 9:00 a.m. on the morning of February 23, 2010, Jozlynn and her boyfriend, Jeffery Lynn Malmbert, age 40 had disappeared. Reports state that Consuela did not realize that the two were missing and at first thought he had taken the child out as he had previously done before.


Consuela Martinez says she became worried when she noticed the house key was still in the home and the downstairs door had been left unlocked. Several hours later she discovered that $2,800 was missing from her purse. It was then that she notified authorities.


On Wednesday night, Jeffrey Lynn Malmbert was arrested, but there is no sign of two-year-old Jozlynn.
Authorities have described Malmbert as cooperative yet the search continues for little Jozlynn. Jeffrey Malmbert denies involvement in her disappearance.


Jozlynn is described as having a scab on her chin and a spot on the right side of her head where her hair doesn’t grow. She walks with her feet turned inwards. And has brown hair and brown eyes. She weighs 22 pounds and stands 2’9” tall. If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of Jozlynn Martinez, please contact the Grand Rapids Police Department at 1-616-456-3604. You may also contact 911.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A man lodged at the Kent County jail in connection with 2-year-old Jozlynn Martinez's disappearance told the child's mother his version of what happened to the toddler.

Consuela Martinez, 21, sat down with boyfriend Jeffrey Malmberg on Saturday during his visitation hours to hear his side of the story.

Jozlynn fell down a set of stairs at the couple's Nagold Street home in Grand Rapids on Monday night and died, Malmberg told Martinez. He panicked and decided to dispose of the child's body in a nearby commercial Dumpster, he said.

"When he went in the bathroom, (Jozlynn) was sitting on the bed," Martinez said after talking to Malmberg. "When he got out of the bathroom, he heard a noise ... and went downstairs and found her laying there."

Malmberg said he was sorry, Martinez told 24 Hour News 8 on Sunday.

Jozlynn went missing Monday night, police said, and by Wednesday, an Amber Alert was issued. Friday evening, Grand Rapids police held a news conference and announced Malmberg told investigators the girl was dead.

Police won't comment on how Jozlynn died. Her body has not been found.

Jozlynn Martinez's mother visits jail, says boyfriend refused to explain why he threw Grand Rapids girl's body in trash
By Kyla King The Grand Rapids Press
February 28, 2010, 6:30AM

Consuela Martinez went to the Kent County Jail on Saturday, looking for answers from her boyfriend — the man police say threw her 2-year-old daughter’s lifeless body into the trash.

She emerged from the jail visit 30 minutes later, crying and clearly frustrated by a fruitless meeting with Jeffrey Malmberg. He refused her pleas for new information about what had happened to Jozlynn Martinez, her brown-eyed daughter who had been missing since Tuesday morning.

“I can’t believe he would do something like this,” the sobbing 21-year-old said outside the jail’s visitor entrance. He told her nothing new, she said.

“It’s just everything he’s been saying.”

Grand Rapids police on Saturday continued to hunt for Jozlynn’s remains, sorting through refuse they removed from a disposal facility on Market Avenue SW and took to a separate, undisclosed location.

Police have said they are treating this as an homicide investigation, but would not comment on whether Malmberg has confessed to causing the child’s death, or said exactly how she died. He remains jailed on a kidnapping charge.

Police now believe Jozlynn died inside the Nagold Street NW home where her mother lived with Malmberg. On Friday, police revealed that Malmberg told them he removed the girl’s body, carried it several blocks and put it in a commercial Dumpster — all after his girlfriend had gone to bed late Monday night.

“We have now gone to the realization that more than likely she is deceased, and we’re trying to recover a body right now,” Lt. Ralph Mason said Saturday. Police were able to isolate trash from that particular Dumpster, but there is a chance her body already has been incinerated, he said.

Like her mother, the community is waiting for answers to the mystery, which came to public attention Wednesday, when police issued an Amber Alert for Jozlynn and said they were looking for Malmberg.

Malmberg, 40, was arrested Wednesday night in Lansing. The next day, he told police Jozlynn died inside the home Monday night, and he disposed of her body Tuesday before heading out of town.

Police will not give up the search for Jozlynn’s body, Mason said.

“This investigation is nowhere near complete,” Mason said. “Not only for the family’s sake, but the whole community that has been affected by this.”

The couple have a 7-month-old, Brian, who was taken into protective custody Thursday because of the circumstances surrounding his sister’s disappearance. He is expected to remain there until a March 11 hearing.

Family puzzled after boyfriend says missing Grand Rapids girl Jozlynn Martinez died at home same night mother says she saw her in bed
By Nate Reens | The Grand Rapids Press
February 27, 2010, 5:11AM

Jozlynn MartinezGRAND RAPIDS -- Over days of repeated questioning by police, Consuela Martinez told officers searching for her missing daughter the same thing: The last time she saw little Jozlynn was late Monday night, as the girl slept in her bed.

By then, the 2-year-old was already dead, Jeffrey Malmberg, the woman's live-in boyfriend, allegedly told police.

Malmberg, police said, admitted he carried the dead girl several blocks from their home at 915 Nagold St. NW, dropped her in a commercial Dumpster and headed out of town Tuesday, leaving the toddler's body among trash for two days, before it was taken to a Kent County garbage collection site.

It's a horrifying image of an alleged crime that captivated the community, who wondered about the whereabouts and well-being of the brown-eyed girl amid an Amber Alert that lasted for three days.

And it's a mystery that could continue, since police have not been able to locate the girl's body after sorting through mountains of waste at a disposal facility on Market Avenue SW.

It's also a story that Jozlynn's mother -- who is not a suspect -- and other relatives find hard to believe.

"All that guy (Malmberg) has done is lie, cheat and steal and, without a body, this is just another game," said Retha Martinez, the child's grandmother. "It don't seem feasible.


Jeffrey Malmberg"(Conseula) was home all night, so how does she die? When does that happen? Why would you put a dead girl in bed? None of it makes sense."

Martinez said her family continues to hope that Jozlynn will be found alive.

Police don't share that optimism, after using 70 officers and federal agents to comb through 200,000 pounds of trash at the Kent County Waste to Energy Facility since Malmberg's Thursday afternoon admission.

"It's extremely disheartening," Police Chief Kevin Belk said. "Every police officer who takes a report of a missing child, we hope and we pray to find that child alive.

"This is a difficult day."

Police will continue the search at the waste facility, but Capt. Jeff Hertel says it's possible Jozlynn's body has been incinerated. Ninety percent of waste taken there is burned, police said.

Hertel said investigators identified the truck that picked up the Dumpster where Malmberg, who is jailed on a kidnapping charge, said he placed Jozlynn's body.

They tracked what time on Thursday morning -- pickup day and hours before the alleged confession -- the truck came into the plant and where it poured out the trash. That area has been isolated from where 150 trucks pile garbage daily.

Officers and plant workers have used a crane to pull tons of trash into a front-end loader, which then spread it out for the hunt.

Police used a cadaver dog, which proved ineffective.

"It's too overwhelming, there's too much there," Hertel said of the odors that distracted the canine.

Police declined to comment on how Jozlynn died, or if Malmberg confessed to killing her. Investigators said it has turned into a homicide investigation.

Hours before Friday's news conference, Grand Rapids District Judge Jeanine LaVille arraigned Malmberg on kidnapping and larceny charges. She ordered him held on a $1 million bond because the suspect presented "an extreme danger to public safety."

Malmberg said little during the brief hearing. Leaning back in a chair, the 40-year-old crossed his arms and his eyes darted back and forth.

The suspect was arrested in Lansing on Wednesday night, a day after Martinez, 21, reported her boyfriend and Jozlynn missing.

The mother, who has a 7-month-old son with Malmberg, said Thursday she believed Malmberg took Jozlynn to punish her for asking him to leave to leave the house they shared for 1 1/2 years.

"I said something about how she was getting hurt. He said something like, 'I would never do that. I love her like my own,'" she said.

Brian, the couple's son together, was taken into protective custody Thursday because the circumstances of his sister's absence were not known. He is to remain there until a March 11 hearing, authorities said.

The entire week has staggered and devastated the Martinez family, Jozlynn's grandmother said.

"We can't believe any of this is happening," she said. "We just don't know what we can do next and how to stop from being overwhelmed.

"I guess they're looking for a needle in a haystack."

The family contends police did not promptly tell them about the search at the waste facility, something police strongly refuted.

Hertel said they were told Thursday before the exploration began.

"They're going through a lot right now," he said. "I don't think you ever give up on finding your child."

Retha Martinez said they intend to continue looking.

"We're going to search every inch of this city," she said.

Jury finds Jeffrey Malmberg guilty of second-degree murder in death of 2-year-old Jozylnn Martinez~
GRAND RAPIDS - Jeffrey Malmberg has been found guilty of second-degree murder today following a Kent County Circuit Court jury deliberating for about three hours.

The verdict was just returned and Malmberg now faces up to life in prison on the conviction for killing 2-year-old Jozlynn Martinez on Feb. 22.

Malmberg admitted putting his knee on the chest of the girl, the daughter of his live-in girlfriend Connie Martinez.

During the five-day trial, he argued that Jozlynn’s death was an accident as he tried to calm her temper tantrum.

Assistant Kent County Prosecutor Chris Becker worked to convince the panel that Malmberg should have known the risk of injury or death was likely when a grown man puts his body on a child.


Becker said there was no excuse for the response by Malmberg, who bagged Jozlynn’s body and threw it in a Dumpster near their 915 Nagold St. NW apartment.

Jurors also found him guilty of felony larceny from taking Connie Martinez’s tax return money and tampering with evidence, stemming from disposing of the girl’s body.
