Murder Victim's Baby In Stable Condition

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- New information about a baby cut out of his mother during a brutal murder. Staff at Deaconess Hospital in Spokane say the baby is no longer in serious condition.

The victim's husband, Juan Campos Gomez, tells us he has named the baby Salvador, which in English means savior. Hospital staff say Salvador Campos Camacho is now in stable condition.

On Friday we also got access to a letter. A letter Araceli Camacho Gomez wrote days before she died.

It's a form of prayer she transcribed, and was found by her husband at their home in Pasco. The letter was written in Spanish, here is a translation.

"I will lend you a son, for some time. Said the lord. I will lend you my son, so that you can love him while I live. It could be one month, six months, seven years, ten or twenty years, or more time until I call him. You can take care of him. I want you to learn how to live. I've looked for a teacher and I've picked you. You will teach him. I can't promise you that he will stay with you, I can only lend him to you for some time, because what comes down to earth comes back to me. He will give you tenderness, joy, and all the comprehension of his youth. And the day that I call him, you won't cry, and you won't forget me for taking him with me. His physical absence will be compensated with the many and very likeable memories, and with that your mourning will be easier to carry and you will say with thankful humbleness, thy will be done."

Juan Campos Gomez, told us his wife liked writing to him and would leave him notes often. So finding this letter wasn't unusual for him.

He read the letter on Thursday, at a funeral mass in Pasco. Gomez also says his wife's family still has plans to take her body back to Mexico.
