The lawyer presented NOTHING to defend my son. And Bryce’s father & brother was okay with this. I WASN’T! So, they kept telling Bryce, Mom’s Mental. Y.A.W.N. how common is that! Often time’s ONE PARENT IS BEING DISCREDITED.
UPDATE: IN THE END I LEARNED THAT IT DOES NOT MATTER IF I AM KIND AND RESPECTFUL. THEY WILL DO WHAT THEY WANT TO YOUR LOVED ONE. THIS UNIT DID NOT GIVE MY SON ABILIFY AND HE CONTINUES TO MENTALLY SUFFER.
❤ 🎂 BRYCE, 🎂 ❤ You had just turned fifteen years old when you were arrested and then wrongfully convicted. Now your twenty-six. I Love you. I miss you so much. I will never stop trying to help you and or find help for you. ❤
*At Montford Unit, On the phone, my son finally sounds GOOD AGAIN! 😊❤*
💕 still searching for a probono lawyer and or law students to help free Bryce. Name any group or organization etc, across this nation, who proclaim to help people like My son and I, I have contacted them more than once, all they offer is their emailed newsletter. L.I.F.E.
This week I had to tell Bryce his older brother Brett Ryan Vandergrift passed away, from complications of diabetes. He was 34 and my first child, he was not married, and had no children. I suspect he did not get to his EXSPENSIVE insulin in time, passed out and fell into a coma.
How can people say there is a God? A good God? 💔.
thanks a lot @codeofvets for saying NO, again to granting me $2k. More often lately, I’ve been wishing Bryce and I were dead.
VIOLATION OF EIGHTH and FOURTEENTH AMENDMENTS RIGHTS. By acting with an evil motive or intent, or with reckless or callous indifference.
A list of professional persons in the state of Texas, that I have requested assistance from, for my son in this ongoing matter. The list includes those that ignored my pleas for help to save my son and those that misdirected me, gave me the run around and or flat out lie.
GO LOOK AT MY SON AND SEE FOR YOURSELF. They REMOVED HIS SCHIZOPHRENIA DIAGNOSIS “AGAIN” AND PUT HIM IN THE HOLE, Mid DEC 2019- Bryce also has MAJOR DEPPRESSIVE DISORDER. They then diagnosed him with “SEVERE PSYCHOSIS.” I express that psychosis is a SYMPTOM of schizophrenia. It runs in my blood family.
They seriously do not appreciate when you advocate for your child, they take it personally. I’m just trying to save my child from dying at the hands of ADULTS.
Bryce has been a G2 for years. I suspect this unit will attempt to build a false BEHAVIORAL disciplinary case history against my son. Somehow Bryce will be blamed. He’s conditioned to reply with… I’m okay.
If an inmate speaks out about any form of abuse by those who have power over them… that inmate WILL BE TAUGHT A LESSON… he will wish he was dead. I KNOW HE WISHES HE WAS DEAD. HE IS SUICIDAL.
WHAT SKYVIEW TDCJ TELL ME
I’m being told by TDCJ, that it’s UTMB medical and mental health staff who are AGAIN removing Bryce’s diagnosis. I can’t be sure because, with this diagnosis removed, it’s TDCJ STAFF that will BENEFIT by removing him as needing protection, and staff isn’t required to check on non-schizophrenic as often.
RIPE FOR SUICIDE.
Bryce is a PASSIVE 25 yr. old young man, who is being placed under brutal conditions “ON PURPOSE” by TDCJ Staff. When will Skyview-UTMB mental/medical staff report this, and or INTERVENE? UTMB website gives a list of items that lead to suicide. Yet it’s acceptable for TDCJ to force inmates into a SUICIDAL MINDSET.
He now has AGORAPHOBIA because of being in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT & consistently mistreated.
MOVE HIM OUT OF THIS UNIT BEFORE HE TURNS UP DEAD.
THE ABUSE CONTINUES
He has now dropped “A LOT” of WEIGHT from these SERIOUSLY DANGEROUS NON-STOP-RESTRICTIONS & PUNISHMENTS & removal of his true diagnosis…
TWO SMALL MEALS A DAY, WITH NO NUTRITIONAL VALUE…EQUATE TO SLOWLY STARVING A HUMAN BEING.
My son is at least 6’2 ft tall and now under 150 pounds HIS TEETH are now the size of a five-year-old. HIS SKIN IS TRANSLUCENT WHITE from LACK of NUTRITION & LACK of SUN. HIS EYES LOOK SUNKEN IN. Just twenty-five-years old and he’s dying.

April 8th 2020, I contacted someone outside of Skyview, within hours Skyview unit told me my son was off restrictions, out of the hole and he was now in a group therapy and has his own cell in the dorms…. *That lasted a day.*
EASY TARGET EASY PREY
Humans like Bryce cannot defend themselves. Not mentally or physically.
4-18-2020 Restrictions remain, he is still in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT or AdSeg, Segregation, It is also called nicer sounding names. They placed him on strict restrictions, even restricting showers and drinking water. His Deterioration has exhilarated since SKYVIEW entered into his life. No tv, no outside, no socializing, no phone calls or commissary, no visitors, a small amount of food passed through a slot in door…NOTHING! He was kept in hole for hours, days, months and it continues.
In Dec 2019, a reporter wanted to interview him. She didn’t get to do that.
To be continued
I want my son alive and well. I want my son to come HOME, so I can get him well again.
baby, please hold on. 🙏
So many FAMILIES have warned TDCJ, that their incarcerated loved one is in danger, the PRISONERS can’t take anymore ABUSE they become SUICIDAL from the constant MISTREATMENT.
IMO OMBUDSMENS DUTY IS TO PROTECT TDCJ STAFF. I’ve been emailing them non-stop! They look at your email and send a respond back in a letter which reads: OFFENDER SAYS HE’S OKAY or HE’S FINE. You know & TDCJ knows he’s suffering… UTMB knows, SO MANY UNNECESSARY-DEATHS.
THE DANGER REMAINS
I believe Skyview Personnel want to seek REVENGE against me for a letter I wrote on OpEdNews PRISON IS QUIETLY DESTROYING MY SON. NOTE: In original post I addressed it to a TX State Rep, who did nothing to assist me.
I’m told that someone read that letter and had my son removed from dangerous COFFIELD-UNIT where he was also put in AdSeg = SOLITARY-CONFINEMENT. Bryce was reassigned back to SKYVIEW. I heard COFFIELD-UNIT just had ANOTHER-SUICIDE in their AdSeg solitary confinement cell.
Please help save Bryce.
I request that my son be removed from Skyview and placed back to MONTFORD UNIT, Lubbock Texas. Montford had a similar incident years ago. A 27 yr old died under the same circumstances. I’m told they have not had another incident since. Move him to a hospital, somewhere SAFE!

🌟 IT WAS EASY TO MANIPULATE and SET BRYCE UP. No matter how much medication this seems to you, it worked for Bryce. When Straterra came out for ADHD, the addarall was replaced. Straterra, non stimulant, best for Tourettes Syndrome, of Autism Spectrum.
*My son is deteriorating in prison. Some days my spirit is so tormented that I’ve wished us dead. Other days I recover and carry on ONLY for the sake of my son who I love dearly. I cannot think of one positive thing to say about prison
Anything minutely good is by BY FAR OVERSHADOWED by the bad, the very bad, the worse than bad, the WORSE of the WORSE. Words that come to mind are barbaric, disgusting, DEHUMANIZING, deplorable, inhumane, DESTRUCTIVE and evil.
Prison life reaches in to GRAB A HOLD OF YOUR VERY CORE.
It’s hunger is to destroy, and if that isn’t bad enoughwhen it’s done CHEWING you & those that love you up…it SPITS you out upon the GUTTER and says…YOU’LL BE BACK.
The only reason the Judge found my son guilty without a reasonable doubt… was because the Lawyer did NOT present my CHILD’S STRONG DEFENSE.
There was / is plenty of evidence to prove MORE than a reasonable doubt. Including the victim named his own son as to who shot him. It’s in the original police report.
(pic maybe 2004 age 10) 🌟Bryce has always responded well to his treatment plan, medications, especially ABILIFY which started at age 8. IEP/ARD in kindergarten. I have all these records, Florida & Texas. WELL DOCUMENTED.
My son Bryce was just 15 years’ old when he was arrested for the murder of his so-called best friend’s father. My son did NOT shoot anyone. He was -Set-Up- to be -Framed- by the victim’s Wife, and their Son Nick, who wanted their family member dead before they met my SPECIAL NEEDS CHILD, (since birth) my beloved son Bryce S. Vandergrift 01661857 TX. DOB 09-09-1994. (True DOB is 09/08/1994)
-IMPORTANT- It’s been eleven years, he is 26 and recently moved to Clement Unit Texas, where he is STILL on the WRONG MEDICATION. Likely to be moved again. HE NEEDS ABILIFY. ***I am requesting someone to please facilitate this asap. -These provider’s do NOT understand his schizophrenia & deep depression disorder is liken to ASSOCIATED DISORDERS or COMORBIDITIES.
Bryce’s Father & other’s were systematically removing our CHILD from his SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT PLAN for his GENETIC NEUROLOGICAL / NEUROPSYCHIATRIC BRAIN DISORDER, Bryce was self medicating with weed & alcohol. There is six month’s proof of this. This child was ripe and HIGHLY SUSCEPTIBLE-TO-MANIPULATION… One medication removed was ABILIFY. His father hired the Attorney who talked defense, yet PRESENTED NOTHING to keep our child from being certified as an “COMPETENT ADULT” and incarcerated for 30-year plea for MURDER ONE.
They even told Bryce that he had shot the man three times in the chest, and that the victim died in his home. NO… Fred was shot once and passed during surgery at Wilford Hall Medical Center. -Did the defense even know the truth?
–MY SON AND THE VICTIM’S TRUTH WERE HIDDEN–
I have enough to prove what is in the case file etc are “falsehoods” to include the wearing a black hoody & all black clothing. If you would like to know more, I would be willing to share this information & those documents. I will answer in private or public. Bryce is NOT CULPABLE FOR ANY PART IN THE STATES CASE AGAINST HIM. The FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGIST for his defense told me so. Her 55 page report was never used. She was told Bryce shot the victim three times. I have her report. A mentally ill brain cannot handle defending itself against manipulation.
To be the Mother of a Special Needs Child has been so very rewarding, word’s that come to my mind, heart and spirit are GENUINE-LOVE
THE WRONGFUL CONVICTION of a MINOR in a COMPLEX CASE. Complex due to the amount of lies and law violations against this then, 15-year-old CHILD done by those mentioned, and by those not mentioned, who were “part of the process” or in control of this case. The Victim did NOT matter, convicting this MINOR was the goal.
The Victim’s wife got what she wanted, the house, money, and the truth hidden.
Bryce’s Father got what he wanted, his crimes against our Child hidden, and our special needs’ son gone.
Nick, the shooter was deemed an assessor and got what he wanted, his dad dead and his mom to get the Insurance money.
– Arrested 12-31-2009 – TX 78251 SAN ANTONIO, TX. Bexar County. Newly opened 436 Juvi court. Newly appointed Judge, who was campaigning for 2010 seat. First murder case for this Judge & Juvi court. DA Susan D. Reed was running for reelection. Separate Bench Trial Plea Deal 30. Nick as assessor / Bryce as shooter & mastermind! Bryce was alone when questioned & interrogated and waived his Miranda Right’s.
At the advice of counsel and other’s in control, almost six month’s after his arrest… Still 15 yrs old, on MAY-26-2010 Bryce was RE-ARRESTED so that he could confess – re-confess? now as an ADULT, to all state’s charges for PLEA AGREEMENT. It took this long to force feed Bryce the details they wanted him to believe, and MORE IMPORTANTLY to parrot it back as if it had originated with him. This was video taped. This Special Needs Child was manipulated before, during & after he was arrested.
CHILD-ORIGINAL-CASE – 2010-CR-JUV-003-22a ORIGINAL POLICE REPORT # 090979792
ADULT-NEW-CASE – CR-5794B CHANCES ARE THE POLICE REPORT WAS RE-WRITTEN.
The Juvi case manager B.H. & The state’s forensic psychologist J.G. made false entries in their report’s to the court about my son. The Juvi psychiatrist passed in 2016.
I was told that when Nick and Bryce arrived at Juvi, after police interrogation, Bryce was DISASSOCIATED and that he was again SUICIDAL. Juvi put him in seclusion and in clothing of material that made him itch. Bryce was placed on Prozac and high dosage of Trazadone. He remained drugged entire time at Juvi. But Nick, Nick was cracking jokes about how his father’s face and eye’s looked as he laid on the floor after being shot. I was told Nick found this very comical.
Lamar Elliot was the family counselor. He told the victim’s wife that her son Nick, had violent tendencies towards his father and to take these warnings seriously. Yet there were unsecured weapons and ammo in the house.
Nick’s and Bryce’s friends told me that Nick tried to get them to kill his father for money. They said Nick showed them a BLACK HANDGUN. They told me they tried to get Bryce away from Nick, they were concerned for Bryce. They said Bryce was under Nick’s control and one of the friend’s walked in on Bryce while he was about to slice his wrist. A psychiatrist report documents attempts at SUICIDE… NO ONE HELPED HIM by putting him back on his successful treatment plan. I was constantly told “all was well, by his father”
A witness went down to the station to tell detectives of the wife’s involvement.
My signature was gotten through false pretense more than once by people who worked for Juvi. I was not allowed to add a PARENTAL STATEMENT. The case manager told me he didn’t know what I was talking about. I bet there is a parental statement with my signature that I know nothing of it’s contents. I have a copy of Mr. David Vandergrift’s PARENTAL STATEMENT, clearly filled with lies against myself and our special needs child.
The Victim and Bryce benefited -ZERO- from this, NOR DID I.
Bryce now understands he was set up, then thrown away, he continues to FORGIVE ALL.
Kind Regards, Bryce’s MoM. I LOVE YOU Son, Moms still trying.
thank-you for your consideration, feel free to ASK ME ANYTHING. Ms. Pelletier (FL) I have other link’s that led to more DETAILS of this case. —Please assist me with getting Bryce on correct medication.
