Cynthya, I suspect you are Horacio's ugly fat machete supplying girlfriend. I was at the trial everyday and there was no one beside a few family members and you there for his side. You are a disgusting person for the lies you spread about Griselda. I have known her for 15 years and the things you are saying about her are completely made up. The things you are saying are untrue, but even if they were true you are saying that she deserved to be murdered. Chased down, like Horacio stated at the trial, "like a lion chasing a zebra and hunting my prey". Horacio had no remorse, and during his testimony came off as an obsessive controlling deranged psychotic man, who rewarded his wife "by allowing her to go out with her friends" if she did what he wanted her to do. You say "what happened with Horacioz's lawyer". I tell you what happened since you are obviously a dumb fool smitten by Horacio. He admitted to murdering his wife, admitted to planning it, chasing her down, stalking her,mounting GPS on her car, and calling her a bitch as he chased her through the salon and butchered her with a machete. Hello you moron, how could his attorney have possibly done more to defend a self-admitted murderer??? Whether you are the disgusting evil girl who supplied him with the machete to kill his wife or truly an old friend of Griselda, you come off as an unintelligent idiot with your statements. So if someone is depressed and upset about how their spouse is acting, they have the right to murder their spouse and get away with it??? You just keep crying for the next 26 years he is in prison. And then every year when his parole is denied you can cry more. Boooo hoooo. He will never see freedom again and that is the way it should be for the evil monster.
And by the way, find a new profession because your self defense training does not work. Look how your self defense training ended for Griselda.

Cynthya, if you are going to spread lies, at least get your dates right. Griselda was not married to that monster in 2003, she did not even know him then. She was one of the sweetest people I have ever know. Cynthya if you thought Horacio was the victum why did you not testify on his behalf on his behalf. I suspect it is the same reason why his family did not testify. Everything you have said is a lie! There was nothing negative said during the trial about Griselda. In fact one of Horacio's friends testified about how abusive and controling he was with Griselda. Well said MKC I could not agree more!

Cynthya, may God have MERCY on you! How dare you feel you have ANY right to speak soo cruelly on the behalf of a departed soul. It is best to leave you in God's hands for he shall deal with the destruction of your own soul since it seems to be in ruins.

I never met Griselda. I knew Horacio, we worked together for many years even before he met her. He was in a relationship with someone else at the time. We were friends and ate lunch together almost every day. The friendship ended because he is and always was a disturbed, angry, crazy person. He was scary and anyone that knew him can tell you the same. I pray for Griselda and her babies who will live their life without her. He deserves what he got and is probably not remorseful. Knowing him I KNOW he is not remorseful. Even if Griselda was the worst wife she didn't deserve to be killed. Why not divorce her and get custody of the kids if she was not a good mom? Anyone who thinks that she deserved it needs to be put in jail too. CYNTHYA, you are demented and need to seek help. Get a psychological evaluation and some strong meds, maybe even institutionlized. You make me sick.

I knew Horacio leading up to this tragedy and I knew of griseldas double life too, trust me when I say no one could have stopped this from happening. Restraining order take him to jail for stalking more restraining orders etc ect. Correct me if I'm wrong the day he killed her was the same day the restraining order was renewed and let's keep in mind where this took place, at 4pm and her workplace in front of everyone. That being said she was safe nowhere... He was angry frustrated vindictive and obsessed with her and no matter where she was when he made his mind up she was done. Take care everyone, this is reality and NO she did not deserve to die because she had a double life. I'm simply stating the facts.
