Jesus Take The Wheel: Father Kills Wife And Three Children Before Shooting Himself In Murder-Suicide

The epitome of a bad father.

If he wanted to take out himself then fine, but to kill three innocent children and his wife is just selfish.

According to Mail Online

A couple and their three children have been found dead inside their Texas home in what police now believe is an apparent murder-suicide.

The father of the slain children, Israel Alvarez, was arrested on a domestic assault charge less than two weeks before his body and that of his wife Guadalupe Ronquillo-Ovalle and their three young children were discovered.

Alvarez’s father was the one to call police on Sunday night and report the slaying inside the family’s home in Rice, a town about 40 miles south of Dallas.

The five bodies were all found with gunshots in their abdomens, and police are still awaiting autopsies as they try to determine who fired the fatal shots.

Navarro County Sheriff Elmer Tanner said a rifle was found at the home.

Investigators were trying to determine when the shootings took place, Tanner said, saying the children, ages 4, 8 and 12, were in school Thursday afternoon but missed classes Friday.

Given the nature of the crime scene and Alverez’s criminal history, police do not believe that the killer is on the loose.

‘We have not seen anything yet that makes us think we need to go outside this location,’ Sheriff Tanner said early into the investigation.

Alvarez was arrested September 11 on a misdemeanor family violence charge for pushing Ronquillo-Ovalle and taking away her phone because he thought she was talking to another man, she told deputies.

‘I don’t care where you are. Any time there’s five losses of lives in one location, that’s shocking and traumatic.

‘It doesn’t make any difference where you are. It’s a horrible, horrible thing to see, witness or be a part of.

‘As far as looking for a suspect, what I’m saying at this point in time is that we are concentrati.ng our efforts on the investigation at the residence.’

So sad.
