Family of Slain Girl Sues Georgia Apartment Complex

February 16, 2012

The family of a 7-year-old girl who was slain is accusing managers of her apartment complex of failing to properly check the background of a maintenance man who later confessed to killing her.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Jorelys Rivera’s mother, Joselinne, filed the lawsuit recently in Fulton County State Court.

The lawsuit maintains that Ryan Brunn was retained as a maintenance man despite residents’ complaints about him lingering at the complex playground watching children.

A manager at the River Ridge at Canton apartments did not immediately return a call for comment from The Associated Press.

Brunn later admitted to molesting and killing Jorelys.

Authorities said Brunn used his sweatshirt to hang himself Jan. 19, just two days after he began a life sentence for the crimes.
