A gruesome double murder in Austin 7/11/07 claimed the life of a Joh Quinones & Carlos Cudillo, and 6 News has obtained an affidavit from an eyewitness that tells a chilling tale about how the murders may have happened.

The vicious murders played out inside an Austin apartment, where 27-year-old John Quinones and his friend, Carlos Caudillo, were stabbed to death, allegedly by 30-year-old Adam Castillo.

In this affidavit, Caudillo's sister, Corrine Caudillo, describes how she woke up to the terrifying sounds of screams.

"She woke to her brother yelling ,'John! John!' followed by sounds of him moaning," the affidavit said.

She said she tried to wake up her boyfriend, John Quinones.

"I tried to get him up, but he didn't wake up. He didn't look injured, but he didn't say anything and he didn't move." the affidavit said.

She went on to say...

"I saw Adam Castillo stab my brother in the head, and neck. He was just stabbing him all over. My brother was trying to fight him off...he just kept stabbing Carlos."

During the terrifying ordeal, Caudillo said she called 911 from the apartment, but before help could arrive. She said the attacker began stabbing her boyfriend.

"I saw Adam stabbing John. John was trying to get over the coffee table. I saw Adam stabbing John on the chest. John was trying to hold the knife away, I just kept yelling,'What are you doing? What are you doing?' "

But Castillo told a very different story. In the affidavit, he said he stabbed the men in self-defense. He claimed he questioned a conversation the victims were having and was forcibly pushed away.

He said Quinones and Caudillo then approached him in a threatening manner, and he picked up a knife he'd left at the apartment and slashed them.

I lived diagnle to Adam with Will, We had moved because I got pregnant, and me and WIll visited Adam about 6 weeks before it happened. Adam didn't not look good, he kept talking about heroin he found in his apartment, he was going 2 the bedroom every two minutes and locking the door. He was totally gone. I only met john once, my boyfriend knew him a lot better though. I had just found out I was pregnant, and he immediatley started talking about his son, how much he loved him, how he had tatoos of him, about the airbrushed shoes he bought for him. And that was the first thing I thought of, how horrible this must be for his baby. My best friend monica lived right next to where all this happened, she actually was over at there house a week b4 it had happened. I am so sorry for you loss, but in the end god is the judge of what really happened and he will Be judged.

Today, as I read all these comments I feel sorry for the families that were left behide. I hope one day you will be able put your lives back together for your children sake. You must remember you must try to foregive in order to heal. There children are the most important part of your lives now will you show them to hate or love. I will pray for everyone involed including the one locked up but hate doesn't solve anything take it from some one who had to foregive before she could move on. Your lives will never be the same again but neither will the young man who is incarcerated. There can only be one judge and know matter how we feel he is the only one that truely saw everything. He is the only one that knows everybodys heart, so be mad but do not judge because you will be judged one day also. I am very sorry for your loss but you must try to start healing.

My heart goes out to the families of the two young men killed. But I also know Adam Castillo, I've known him all his life. I'm trying to understand what happened also. I've seen Adam's healed defensive wounds. I wonder what really happen how did he get those wounds. He is a really good person, kind, gentle, and awsome, he also has family that loves him as well. And to all you that want to judge remember, there is only one judge and his will be done not ours.

I love Adam very much and don't understand how this happened I am so sorry to all of you hurting over this. Adam's family and friends are hurting as well. Know that we feel horrible about this we are hurting for you who have lost and for Adam who has done something totally out of character. I don't know what happened I have never went to Texas to visit Adam and do not know what life was like for him down there. I now live with the hurt of dealing with this. Just pray and keep God in your hearts always.

Ok This is all so terrible. I feel so sad for the people that lost there loved ones. I do know Adam very well. I have known him for the past 14 years. This is not something Adam would ever do. It is obvious something did happen at that apartment that night, but I know in my heart that there is NO way that he did anything intentionally. It had to be self defense!!! It had to be!!! He has a wonderfull heart and yes he has made mistakes but taking lifes for No reason is Not one of them. I pray for Adam and the two men that lost there lives and there families that terrible night. Nothing can bring them back and that is so sad. God will be with you and them always.I am sure there are children involved that already have lost there father's. That is the worst part of all of this. I know Adam has a son that he loves very much. I just feel like he might loss his dad over all of this. That breaks my heart. It will be another child with out a dad. What good could come out of that. In closing I just want to say please please everyone tell the truth! For the truth will set you free.

I have know Adam my whole life and know him to be a wonderful, caring, happy person. I would trust him with anything, even my kids. Everyone out there writing all of these negative things about him, are only writting one half of the story. Do I feel grief fot the families of the lost ones? Yes. But to state that they are the only victiams in this situation would be falling way short of the truth. Two men died in this altercation, one survied, but what kind of life is he living. I truly in my heart find it hard to belive that any man would purposely attack two grown men without just cause. I have seen Adams defensive stabb wounds to the hands. I have seen Adams stabb wounds in the back. I have talk to him face to face and saw the pain he was going through being placed in jail for over a year now, being held for a supposed crime he commited. Yet everything points to Adams innocence. He was Clearly Defending himself against these two men who attacked him. Both of the men who died, were found to have several types of drugs and narcotics in their system. Were they in their right mind when this horrible act was commited? I don't know. But being under the influence of any drug, can make any man, kind or not, do horrible things. If it is a crime to defend your self and fight for your life then let the appropriet punishment be handed out. But for all of you out their thinking the death penelty being brought down upon Adam is going to make all of your hurt go away you are so trully wrong. Healing for you must begin on the inside. You must learn to have forgivness. You must learn to deal with all of the hurt and find positive copping skills to deal with your anger. Anger is not a bad emotions to have it is what we do with are anger that makes all the differnce.
I love you Mijo, Miss you like crazy, pray for you always, and know I will see you again Soon!!!

I can understand how Adams family wants to think that it is self defense. For self defense he sure did go above and beyond the call of duty for it. Read up on the injuries to these 2 men and then decide what kind of person could do this to someone! Self defense or not!

Adam Castillo murdered these 2 men. Nobody will ever know the whole story because Adam is the only one alive to tell it. Just keep a few things in mind...it was his knife....and there were two of them.

I understand that but Adam choose the path he is living. Jail is the best place for a crazy man like that...if it wasn't John or Carlos it would have been others...if he can lose his cool so quickly then yea he deserves what he gets.
Read the top it says JOhn and Carlos not Adam so make your own page.

Defensive wounds?!? Adam had no defensive wounds. His wounds were only from committing the crime of stabbing my brother and John to death.

For the folks coming on here and saying how well they knew Adam, then you should know how well of a criminal past he had! This was not the first time he did something with the intention to hurt them either!

I'M sorry to hear such anger. I guess I can understand the anger. But yes he does have defensive wounds on the back. So your saying that your brother was sitting there doing nothing when Adam stabbed him "I see", your saying Adam had plenty of time to call 911 "ok", then why did he have to defend himself. And I'm really glad that your family members have no criminal past at all. As far as starting our own page if you put it on the web anybody can comment. Again i'm sorry for your lost.

Yes anything on the web is free to do as you please....but you should respect the fact that this was done for Carlos and John and NOT Adam. They want to be able to read the comments that are left for their memories....not comments defending the man who murdered them. And keep in mind not everyone is a saint but when you already have attempted murder on your belt!! Look you should really just leave this people in peace. Be there for Adam, support Adam, let him know you care and love him. But do not defend him to the family that he murdered their loved ones. He made his decision on what he did and he will have to live with that. The sad thing is he is making many more people also live with his decision. You can THINK it was self defensive but he brutally murdered these men. He decided to be God that morning and take their last breath. So please once again leave your comments to your own page and don't disrespect the families that are unable to speak to the ones that they love since Adam took them away.
