Relationships and marriages bust up all the time. Sometimes it can’t be avoided, people just grow apart. But it’s no reason to kill yourself or your children.
Isidro Zavala (45) couldn’t handle the fact that his marriage was over. His wife wanted a divorce. Instead of simply accepting it or maybe suggesting marriage counselling, Zavala had other ideas. A bad one. He rocked up to his ex-wife Victoria’s Florida home (where else?) and killed two of his three sons (12 and 11) in front of her. Victoria told police that she was watching TV when she heard noises and found her ex-husband strangling one of their sons. He would then strangle both sons and shoot himself dead, like the coward he was. Mrs Zavala begged her ex to kill her instead, let their sons live. He told her that he was going to spare her so that she could suffer. What a selfish and callous dick.
Police found the body of one son in the patio area of the home and the other son’s body, along with that of the sperm donor in the kitchen. A third son aged 19 didn’t live with them, so he survived. A suicide note was left for him, saying he was a “good son”. Why, because he didn’t live with the ex-wife? Because the bastard couldn’t get to him? How awful for the young man to suffer the loss of his brothers, and to know that they died and he didn’t because he was his dad’s “favourite”? I can’t even begin to comprehend the crushing survivor’s guilt this poor young fellow must be feeling, even though it wasn’t his fault that his sperm donor was a selfish immature brat who couldn’t accept it when things didn’t go his way?
There was no history of domestic violence in the marriage, and Mrs Zavala had filed for divorce in October last year. So, plenty of time for the bastard to get used to the idea of singledom. Or plenty of time for him to plan this horrific attack on his children and for him to take the coward’s way out. These psychos view people as property, not living beings with their own thoughts and desires. Our little psycho bastard Isidro felt that his children were his to use as weapons against his ex-wife, despite their protests, fighting for their lives. None of it mattered to him. He just wanted his ex to suffer. I don’t know how Victoria and her remaining son will go on, but I hope they find the strength and the courage to live their lives in honour of Marco and Eduardo.
