Police: Florida Mom Forced To Watch Estranged Husband Kill Their Sons By Gilma Avalos and Juan Ortega, NBC Miami
A South Florida man strangled his two young sons with a rope at his estranged wifes house and then used a gun to shoot one of the boys several times before he shot himself to death, authorities said Saturday afternoon.
Police say Isidro Zavala, 45, early Saturday went to the Boynton Beach home of his wife with the intention of killing her and their children, Eduardo Zavala, 12, and Mario Zavala, 11.
At the crime scene, detectives found a blue bag with a second firearm, extra ammunition, duct tape, cutting shears and a note addressed to Zavala's oldest son, who was not at the residence during the killings, police said.
Isidro Zavala carried out his plan, but with an exception: He spared his wife, Victoria Flores Zavala, 36, so that she could suffer, police said.
What Mrs. Zavala had to go through -- watch her children killed before her -- is probably the most horrific thing you could ever imagine, at least for me, said Boynton Beach Police Chief G. Matthew Immler, saying that he himself is a parent.
The motive for the killing "is just speculation at this point," Immler said. Victoria Flores Zavala contacted police, who arrived at her house in the 400 block of Southwest Eighth Avenue about 1:50 a.m. Saturday. Officers found one child dead in a back screened patio area. A second child was found dead in the kitchen dining room area. Officers found Isidro Zavalas body in the kitchen, police said.

She tried fighting him off and begged him to kill her and not the children, Boynton Beach police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater said in a press release. He told her she was going to stay alive and suffer the loss of them.
A special place in hell...
I seems America has been overrun with sadistic, murderous maniacs. These mutants know that the liberals/Democrats have made it next to impossible for the justice system to inflict any real punishment on them for their crimes. That’s why the country is having this outbreak of hideous criminality.
That’s been a sore subject with me (and probably a lot of others) of late, this constant bemoaning of people being “mentally ill” when in reality they are just freakin EVIL!
And evil needs a .308 to the skull. (Er... maybe just a spiked bat with ammo like it is now...)
Bayonets are cheap too. Perhaps that is why the liberals want to ban bayonet lugs.
the thought of killing your own children so their mother would suffer is just satanic.
It’s an NBC story - could be a lie...
Too bad she didn’t have a gun-could have ended a different way.
We don’t really know if there are more of these things now days. We didn’t used to have 24 hr news.
if only Barack had made his gun illegal, this would have never happened!
Why are the actions of evil bastards “news”?
Salt the earth with this bastard’s ashes and never speak his name again.
“if only Barack had made his gun illegal, this would have never happened!”
Not to mention ropes...
Both murder and violent crime are down 49% since 1992.
“Yes - there is evil in the world.”
Yes.. there is..
Guns are not the problem. Angry, evil people are the problem. Society’s challenge is to stop producing so many angry evil people.
