Over the weekend, in an apartment building complex located in Fresno-CA, a young mother by the name of Aide Mendez, 23 decided to smoke some crack, she captured herself getting stoned by recording it on her iPad a couple of hours before she began a killing spree.
Afterwards, Mendez started shooting, killing not only her boyfriend's cousin, Paul Medina, 27, but this sick individual then shot her two kids, 17- month old girl Aliyah Echeverria (she dies at the hospital) and her son Isaiah, age 3, who was pronounced dead at the scene. She then shot and stabbed the father of her children, Eduardo Lopez 33, who managed to escape and run out of the apartment, just as police arrive.
As officers prepared to enter the apartment, another shot was fired. The mother, Aide Mendez, was found dead of a self-inflicted gun shot wound.
Is human life of so little value anymore that a mother slaughters her entire family?
Just before the Christmas holidays, a mother in Emington, Illinois also murderered her entire family before taking her own life.
Violence and the slaughter of innocent lives has become a common theme in households across the county.
Intimate partner violence and homicide is as deadly and common as getting in your car and driving drunk.
I cannot find the words in describing any parent who in cold blood kills their own children.
