Now, I don’t have a boyfriend — but I’m sure that if I did and we had a fight and he said he was leaving me, that I’d be upset. Not sure that at my age I’d act irrational on any level, because let’s face it – what’s the point? A man (or woman) doesn’t want to be with you? Move the fuck on with your life. No man or woman that you’re fucking is worth much more than a few tears, maybe a few stiff drinks and then getting back on this horse called “life”.
That’s not the reaction to the news of her impending breakup that 25-year old Perla Morales had. Her reaction was the worst thing you could ever imagine. She shot her 2 babies, multiple times each. 17-month old Richard and 4-year old Emma both died because their mom had been dumped. Richard was DOA when the paramedics arrived, but his big sister Emma didn’t die until later at the hospital. I hope from the bottom of my soul that she didn’t suffer too much in the hour that she out-lived her little brother. My heart is shattered for these two sweet angels.
The news doesn’t stop there. Perla tried to kill herself, too. But she didn’t put a bullet through her head like she should’ve – since she was holding a gun and all. She slit her wrists and was listed in the hospital with “non-life threatening injuries”. What a fucking pussy. She can shoot her babies in cold blood but gives herself some wrist scratches? FUCK her.
“She loved her children. She was a good mother,” said Sandy Ramirez, a cousin of Morales.
Well, Perla’s cousin – I call bullshit on your claim. Good mothers that love their children don’t shoot them and kill them. One article says that a family member claims that Perla suffered from depression and they tried to help her get help, but she wouldn’t ever go. Another sign of a person who should never be called a good mother.
Her boyfriend, Richard Sr., was baby Richard’s father, but not Emma’s. It’s been reported that he raised Emma as his own and she loved him very much. I can’t imagine what he must be going through. It’s ok that he didn’t want to be with Perla anymore and broke things off – I’m sure that he never expected her reaction to be what it was. I’m only sorry that she wasn’t able to be successful in her suicide. Don’t they know to just off themselves and leave the babies out of it?
RIP Richard and Emma – I will always remember your sweet faces.
