Who in this world likes to be humuliated? No one, and who will snap when something precious to them is taken away? Everyone! just figure it out people.
And for the so called family member with the most stupid comment! I have known Horacio for over 8 years now and he is a Gentle, Loving MAN!! Ask yourself this, Do you even know his BDAY? probably not do you know what he did every sunday after he went to church with his kids? NOPE!! now why are you thinking you know him? I dont know, but you have proven to be a judge of this more then a "Family Member" if my family did this i would want to know why my loving family member did such a horrible thing, not the opposite and you know nothing of his family! Her friends stick together more then you are! and you didnt even know her!! you are such a betraying family member!!! I BET YOUR PERFECT!!!!! One day his story will come out, and even then of course he should have just divorced her and eventually married a woman that truly deserved a loving man as he is, that would have been the best of REVENGE!! but when your sad, depressed, and pushed to the limit of no return one doesnt think of it all!! He has lost everything and he has yet to snap out of the Depression he is in and realize that the woman he loved and the children he did EVERYTHING for are gone!! and although it started with Zelda, it ended with his own hand! and that has to be horrible for a MAN, who Loved his wife and children like many men out there dont today!!! Lets not forget that when "One" really wants it over, we do everything to not hurt the other... This was not the case with Gris, she didnt want him to move on, the only person the was allowed to move on was Her. He had to beg to see his kids, and she didnt even spend time with them!
Go ahead Zeldas friends say whatever you want!! i know when my friends are doing bad things and i try to stray them from harming themselves and others... did you say or do anything to stray her form Punishing him for being depressed over the loss of their marriage, and not being able to see his kid!!! Probably not YOU were probably out drinking away with her, and her new lover, while he was crying for his kids in an empty house!!!
I will be there for Horacio through it all!! Because he is not the MONSTER you all are painting him out to be!!!!!!!!!!

I knew Horacio. this wasn't the first woman he stalked. This wasn't the first time police had to interact with this "gentle" soul. I believe he was a sociopath, who put on a good show and tried to be decent, but his anger overwhelmed him in the end, and took his wife's life.
He is well-educated, intelligent, well dressed and soft-spoken...and a sick murderer.

Well in regards to the obviously ignorant post above, the last time I checked my tax dollars were not just going to support "Mexicans". Why dont we all make an educated search and realize that, whits, blacks, asians, and hispanics all require help from the goverment at times. I also did not know that only "Mexicans" have 5+ children. Octo mom ring a bell, or how about John and Kate plus 8, and my all time favorite the white couple from the East coast with 19 kids who by the way all have their own reality tv show, exploiting their kids to make ends meat. I dont recall seeing any hispanic families acting all kinds of crazy on tv.
I am of Mexican herritage and I am proud to say that neither myslef nor my brothers were raised by our parents to be in gangs, to steal, kill, or any og the typical stero types that ignorant people like to associate hispanics with. So for all my white red-neck hill billy folks lets look at our own kind before passing judgment on the rest!

She didn't deserve to die(beautiful woman) He was a good guy a great father and no one should ever have to go through what he is going through considering who he was before this unthinkable act. Their children didn't deserve to lose a mother and a father. For those of you wishing this and that and hoping for harm, you people are lame.

This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my life!! There are plenty of people of all walks of life who need to take responsiblity for their actions not just Mexicans!! James L, you make me sick. To think that there are people like you who are so narrow minded that you'd blame ONLY mexicans on the negativity of society and our current systems is sad. Clearly someone failed you James and anyone else who agrees with him.

PLEA TO MEXICAN PARENTS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIRS......
By James L.
Let's first stop playing the game;
let's call it by it's right name.
It's "Mexicans" not Latinos, not "Hispanics"; it's MEXICANS.
People wake up,
take control & responsibility for your children.
If you cannot support 4,5,6,7 children don't have them. Rather wait till you have the means to suport them.
Why do you look to the state or fed govts or others to support your children?
Why do you ask for hand outs when YOU do not pay for other families' kids?
Mexican parents, stop this insane cycle of allowing your kids to be chol gang bangers.
Mexican parents, enough with buying rims for your pick ups while you live in squalor & on welfare, having more kids that you cannot support.
Mexican parents when are going to stop raising your kids in the evil ways of the cholo?
Mexican parents ya basta con las mentiras that you espouse that it's the fault of the "system" or the "government" for the fact that you kids are over crowding our jails & prisons.
Mexican parents when are you going to take responsibility for YOUR kids?
Mexican parents when will YOU say "Ya Basta"? When will you stop makingh exuses for your kids joing gangs, killing innocent people, polutting our schools & commuinties with drugs, spray paiting graffiti all over the once nice towns?
Mexican parents it is time that you take responsibility for your laziness; your laziness to not want to be diligent parents that should STOP their kids from becoming rabid cholos and total menaces to our society.
Mexican parents this brings shame to those Mexican parents that care for their kids and care for their communities. YOU make them (and us) look bad.
Mexican parents enough is enough. Ya basta. Ya basta.

I knew Griselda as my hairdresser. I went to her for a period of about 2 years. She was very kind and sweet and very talented at her trade. I remember she had pictures of her husband and children all over her station. All she talked about was them. Made me very sad to know this beautiful family ended up this way. I didnít know Horacio nor can I sit here and judge him and speak badly about him. But taking someoneís life is inexcusable under any circumstance. Its so sad for the children who have been left to deal with the aftermath for the rest of their lives. My heart goes out to both families who have both suffered deeply because of this tragedy. What ever the verdict outcome maybe on earth remember God will be the true judge of everything that happened on Judgment Day.
