Facebook users commented on Wilkins’ page after she and her son were formally identified.
‘Very very sad and I am very sorry for family / friends and witnesses. Poor kid Denzel.
‘My heart is completely broken for this family. Please know that the hearts of so many are with you, ‘added another.
Raquel was reported to have climbed on a bench near the edge twice with her son in her arms before they fell over the railing on the west side of the stadium.
Witnesses also said that Raquel appeared to be ‘happy and laughing’ before she and Denzel fell over the edge.
“The deaths of the victims appeared to be suspicious, and as a precaution, the San Diego Police Homicide Unit was called to the scene,” said Lt. Andra Brown.wikipedia
“The investigation is ongoing and detectives are still in the process of interviewing witnesses and trying to locate evidence.”
Police arrived on the scene 20 minutes after the mother and son came down with the circumstances as to how and why they were unclear.
Brown added: ‘How and why this happened are questions on the minds of many, especially researchers seeking answers in this heartbreaking case.
“Due to the large crowd present at the time of the incident, detectives have been interviewing numerous witnesses and more are coming forward.”
In terms of Wilkins’ state of mind prior to the incident, Mayor Todd Gloria suggested that possibly she was going through something.
“Many people are suffering from depression, anxiety, either because it has been that way for a while or because the pandemic has exacerbated it,” Gloria said.
Whatever it is, get help. There is no need to harm a child, to traumatize others in our community. Help is available if you need it. ”
Gloria apologized for making these suggestions after Wilkins family attorney Dan Gilleon criticized it.
“It was reckless and hurtful for the mayor (to give an interview) insinuating that (the mother) hurt her own child and traumatized the community by some intentional act,” Gilleon told the San Diego Union Tribune.
“What the family is trying to focus on is memorial services for two people they loved very much.”
The Padres released a statement to express their condolences for the loss of Raquel and Denzel.
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of life at Petco Park last night,” the statement read. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of those involved.”
