Deborah Sanchez, Jorden's Mother, arrived for her scheduled visit with Jorden and was met by 3 deputies informing her that Jorden was not there and they could not disclose her whereabouts. As the day progressed no phone call ever came from Jorden.
Around 10pm that evening, Deborah received a call that her daughter had been involved in an incident and was being flown to Banner University in Tucson, AZ. After a grueling two hour drive, with panic fueling her journey, Jorden's Mother was faced with a sight that no parent should ever see. She saw her youngest child's body mangled and broken almost beyond recognition, and her brain dead. At this point the family was told that she had been transported to Sierra Vista for a second medical evaluation earlier that day and upon her return to Safford, slipped her hand cuffs, belly chain and shackles and jumped from the moving transport vehicle.

After struggling with the decision they had to make, they pulled Jorden's life support to donate her organs, and let her rest in peace. On this day Jorden took her last breath at 28 years old, leaving behind three beautiful children, her mother, sister, aunts and cousins.
