Now, the community store Tienda Salvadoreña is raising money to help send Martin home to El Salvador one last time.

Delia Rivera’s family has owned Tienda Salvadoreña for 25 years. It has survived so long, because it’s a taste of home for immigrants from Central America.

“You come and you meet people and they become your lifeline you meet different people of the same so mostly these guys hang out together,” said Delia.

That’s why when she heard about the death of Martin, a young man from El Salvador living in Aurora, she knew she had to do something. She is collecting donations for Martin’s family.

“Some put $100 to whatever they can.”

Delia didn’t know Martin but lots of people in Denver and Aurora did know him. She says the Central American community is taking it hard.

“I think this kid hit more home because of the age. He’s just been here about two or three years so like I said they were all once this guy.”

The money will be used to ship Martin’s body back to El Salvador so his parents can bury him there.

Delia says it’s the least the Salvadorian community can do for one of their own, “They have come together a lot lately.”

An arrest affidavit states Pankey and her husband, Leland Pankey, put Caden in an animal crate in July of 2018 and covered it with blankets. The boy cried saying he was hot and thirsty, but neither tended to him.

According to a woman who spent time in jail with Elisha, the boy’s mother then woke up the next morning to find the boy dead inside the crate. The couple then took the crate, with Caden inside, and bought industrial strength trash bags and concrete mix.

Elisha and Leland then drove to the storage unit and covered the crate with the plastic bags. Caden’s body was inside encased in concrete, documents state.

Detectives say they found water bottles and concrete mix dust on the floor. When investigating, two cadaver dogs alerted to the crate.

Earlier this month, a report by the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner stated the body was malnourished and had numerous injuries to the “head, trunk and extremities.” It also stated the body may have also suffered from asphyxia and dehydration. Experts say the body tested positive for methamphetamine.

Caden was unenrolled from Denver Public Schools on Sept. 7, 2018. The family told the Department of Human Services that they planned to home-school Caden.

She then called police to report the incident on Dec. 17, 2018.

After about 10 days of investigation, police arrested Leland for the alleged domestic violence incident and later arrested Elisha for Child Abuse Resulting in Death.
