Deported in 2006, returned to Texas illegally. Killed his 4 kids, wife is critical, and he offed himself. The police were at the house for a domestic the week prior. The woman refused to press charges. If there was some cooperation between the DHS and local law enforcement, it might have been known that he was deported before and he could have been detained. Lots of variables/what if's on this one. http://www.khou.com/home/Police-Bay...-condition-aware-kids-are-dead-135036463.html by Associated Press khou.com Posted on December 5, 2011 at 11:39 AM Updated yesterday at 1:08 PM BAY CITY, Texas -- Police say a Texas woman shot by her husband has been upgraded to serious condition and she’s aware that he killed their four children.
