According to reports, Navaro had two BWM’s, $25000 in jewelry, designer bags and clothing, expensive electronics, and other high valued items in her home. Navaro had no source of employment and according to documents, she was only receiving public assistance. Navaro also had Section 8 which she allowed a friend to use while she was living in her $250,000 home.
When investigators found out about the children attending schools in other districts, investigator from the Department of Human Services questioned the children at their schools. According to one report, Juan Sanchez, age 8, told investigators that Navaro was a friend of his mother. Investigators concluded he was unaware of the scheme and only visited Navaro’s home on occasion to play with her real children.
After investigators found out that Sanchez was not one of her children, they brought Navaro in for questioning. What investigators discovered next was shocking.
Navaro had a friend who worked for the city’s vital records department who assisted her in falsifying documents to make it appear the 3 children she was claiming were hers. The documents she retrieved allowed her to claim benefits for the children. The documents had different names than what the official documents had in the possession of the biological parents. Because the names were different, and benefits were being claims in different counties, social services were unable to pinpoint the fact that four different women were getting benefit for each of the three children.
