Dad murders 3-year-old son, 5-year-old daughter, their mother after she arrives to pick them up from visitation (Tulsa, Oklahoma)

Yet another follow up, this time from a story first posted  in August. At that time this was still an UNNAMED DAD. Now we see that he was later identified as WILLIAM ROLANDO FUENTES  GODINEZ.

Even though this POS gunned down and killed three innocent people, notice there is still a tendency to blame all these murders on "marital problems"  or "issues between the man and the woman." This just deflects responsibility away from the killer, and blames the mother for the father's acts. And notice that the mother is blamed even though she tried to accommodate this POS with visitation.

This is why fathers with histories of domestic violence should be banned from contact with the kids. Mothers should not be put in harm's way because they are being pressured or required to "facilitate" the abuser's access to the kids. After a marital breakup, all these guys want to do is punish mom, and they know the most vicious thing they can do is destroy her children.

An estranged couple from Guatemala and their two small children were found dead in a murder-suicide in Tulsa early Tuesday after experiencing several months of marital problems, authorities said.

 Police responded to a call at the Bradford Townhouses, 2190 S. 109th East Ave., around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday after a tenant reported finding four bodies there with gunshot wounds.

 “(Family members) were visiting the apartment residence, and one of the … residents came home and found them deceased,” Tulsa Police Department spokeswoman Demita Kinard said.

Guatemala’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Houston said in a statement Tuesday afternoon that William Rolando Fuentes Godinez, 35, fatally shot his wife, Maribel Jaqueline Ramirez Fuentes, 22, and then killed their 3-year-old son, Franklin Yosiel Fuentes Ramirez, and 5-year-old daughter, Caroline Michelle Fuentes Ramirez.

Police also found a 2-year-old girl unharmed in the home, and she has since been returned to her mother, they said.

The Guatemalan Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ statement says a family friend said Fuentes Godinez regularly threatened to kill his wife and children if she refused to let him return home. “The female victim had dropped off the children … at their father’s apartment earlier in the day,” Tulsa Police Sgt. Dave Walker said in a release.

 “The female victim returned in the evening hours and brought a 2-year-old child with her. This child was related to the female victim’s roommate and they were living at a separate location.”

Fuentes Godinez had two male roommates, neither of whom were home at the time the shootings occurred, Walker said.

Ramirez Fuentes and Fuentes Godinez were from San Pedro Sacatepequez, San Marcos, which is in Guatemala’s southwest corner, officials said. Their children were born in the United States, and Guatemalan authorities said a family friend reported that the couple separated two months ago.

ReeRee Elmore, a five-year resident of the apartment complex, said the family, like most others living there, kept to themselves.

“I just saw (Fuentes Godinez) when he would come outside smoking a cigarette,” she said. “He didn’t talk to anybody or bother anybody. … It’s just shocking to me because you just can’t picture somebody doing that.”

Shirley Bradley, who has lived at the complex for eight years, shared a building with the family. She said she heard a suspicious noise around 10:15 p.m. Monday coming from the area around Fuentes Godinez’s apartment but was still shocked to see multiple patrol cars in the area overnight.

“Our dog ran from the furthest point of that apartment to my door and would not come away from the corner, so I’m assuming that’s when something was going on,” Bradley said. “From what I understand, … she brought the kids over to visit and then she went to buy groceries, and when she came back … is when it all went down.” Bradley didn’t know the family personally but said she believes that the complex has seen an increase in crime during her time there. The violent deaths have prompted her to think about moving, she said.

“My heart goes out for those babies,” she said. “They did nothing wrong. No matter the issues between the man and the woman, the children were innocent.”

The Guatemalan Consulate will continue to assist the family’s survivors and Tulsa authorities during their investigation, officials there said.

“If necessary, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will cover the costs of repatriation of remains, if it were the family’s desire,” the office’s statement, written in Spanish, says.

The deaths increase Tulsa’s homicide total for the year to 35 and Tulsa’s suicide total for the year to 58, police said.
