DALTON, Ga. - Funeral services for three children killed in a Lilburn house fire last week were held Wednesday.
The services for Jose Ivan Guevara Brito, 3, Isaac Xavier Guevara Brito, 4, and Stacy Brito Pina, 18-months-old, were held in the chapel at the Willis Funeral Home in Dalton. Internment followed at the West Hill Cemetery.
The mother of the children, Neibi Brito, attended the services under police escort.
Officials say Ivan Gonzalez is responsible for a deadly meth lab fire in the home that killed the three children. Brito has been charged with trafficking in methamphetimine.
The fire originated in a hallway between the kitchen and stairwell of the home. Chemicals used in the manufacturing of meth ignited, causing the fire, say Gwinnett fire officials.
Authorities say Gonzalez was in jail, just days before the fire, having been arrested for having a false ID. But the jail's "287g Program" that screens for illegal immigrants never kicked in for a number of reasons.
"What we since found out is that system's been offline for approximately three weeks. Had that system been running it would have picked up a hit that his name was Ivan Gonzalez and he had been fingerprinted before," said Stacey Bourbonnais of the Gwinnett Sheriff's Department.
The sheriff says because Gonzalez gave a fake name that matched a real Georgia driver's license when he was here a previous time, they thought he was a legal American citizen.
Gonzalez is now the subject of a nationwide manhunt. Authorities think he may be heading to Mexico.

Last August, Gonzalez was arrested under his alias on a bench warrant for failing to appear in court on an expired registration citation. His drivers license was valid under the Torres name, listing his birth place as Puerto Rico, Bourbonnais said http://www.gwinnettdailypost.com/home/headlines/116687939.html
From another story on this matter- Just think how they want to do away with Secure Communities ?
Illegals killing fellow illegals, the state of GA and ice had this guy in jail, and it wasn’t the first time, they let him out knowing he was an illegal. Good cop work.
Just your typical nice illegal alien PING
This happened in my old neighborhood, the boys that rescued the kids are good friends with my middle son.
The Scumbag was in jail the week before because another guy killed his kids and tried to blame the boyfriend of the mother of the children, they too died. 5 children DEAD within the same circle of people.
Y’all can’t even imagine what these people have done to community after community. DESTROYED!!! Lilburn used to be like Mayberry....the schools were great, the community was great but it has declined soooo fast. The neighbors are horrified but sadly I am not surprised.
“Just your typical nice illegal alien PING”
Yeah, I hear about them every night on the local news.
Last night it was an illegal alien (couldn’t even speak English on the news) woman who was attacked by a home invader who was also an illegal alien.
