On Friday, January 26, 2018, at approximately 6:44 AM, deputies assigned to the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to a possible child death at a residence within the 3000 block of Cannes Avenue, in the unincorporated community of High Grove. Upon arrival, deputies located a child with obvious signs of trauma. The child was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Deputies detained several individuals at the home and summoned station investigators, as well as investigators from the Sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit to the scene. Investigators responded and assumed the investigation.

Their investigation revealed information linking the child’s mother, Susan Rank, to the child’s death.  Rank is a 30-year-old resident of the home.  Rank was immediately taken into custody and later transported to the Robert Presley Detention Center, where she was booked for murder. The victim’s identity is being withheld.  

Anyone with information regarding the incident can contact Investigator Ted Gonzalez with the Central Homicide Unit at 951-955-2777, or Jurupa Valley Investigator Mike Barros at 951-955-2600.  Due to the ongoing investigation, no further information will be released at this time.
