The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez is a 2020 true crime documentary television series about the 2013 murder and abuse of Gabriel Fernandez, an eight-year-old boy from Palmdale, California. It was released on Netflix as a six-part miniseries on February 26, 2020. On May 22, 2013 authorities responded to an emergency call at the home of Gabriel Fernandez because the 8-year-old had stopped breathing.

When paramedics arrived, they found a bruised and beaten Gabriel. His skull was cracked, three of his ribs were broken, BB pellets were embedded in his bruised and burned skin, and two of his teeth had been knocked out. He was immediately taken to a hospital, but tragically died two days later.
