Epitome Of A Bad Father: Woman And Four Kids Dead After Being Pulled From Burning Home… With Stab Wounds!

- By Bossip Staff

Jesus Take The Wheel!Tabasha Paige-Criado and her four children, ages 2, 5, 6 and 7 were killed in Medford, Oregon Monday. They were discovered when rescuers pulled their bodies from their burning home only to discover they had also been stabbed. Paige-Criado’s husband, 51-year-old Jordan Adam Criado is the main suspect in the crimes.

“She loved her mama. She would call me in the middle of the night and tell jokes,” Paige-Criado’s mother Gwen Crowles said from her Bakersfield home.

Criado, who served in the Navy, was born and raised in Bakersfield before moving several years ago with her family about 600 miles away in Medford.

Police believe Jordan Adam Criado stabbed them and set fire to the house, staying inside as it filled with smoke, said Medford police Chief Tim George. Criado remained hospitalized Tuesday in a hospital in Medford, where police planned to arrest him as soon as he recovered enough to leave.

Crowles got the dreaded phone call Monday night.

“My daughter is gone, and all my grand kids burned up,” the Bakersfield mother and grandmother cried. “I tried to kill myself. I just wanted to give up.”

Crowles said she knew her daughter and son-in-law were having problems but didn’t think it was this bad.

“I know she was going to leave him. They were getting a divorce,” Crowles said.

A records check also shows that Jordan Adam Criado was picked up in 2005 in Oregon on an outstanding warrant out of Kern County, charging him with failing to register as a sex offender. He served less than a year in Kern County jail for that infraction.

Trying to make sense of the situation, Crowles recalled a phone call she received two days earlier.

“She called me two days before (her) death and said she loved me,” Crowles said. “I didn’t catch that she needed me.”

Crowles said once the investigation is complete, the bodies will be return to Bakersfield for a memorial service.

This story is crazy! It’s also been reported that just hours before this happened the husband called the cops claiming that his wife was missing.

    Why do people think they need to kill the kids? Children are so innocent I don’t understand. Recently a woman here in New Orleans killed herself and her 3 kids what did they kids do to make her think she need to take them with her. Give the kids a chance to live there life. God help the kids of this world.
