    GA - Three children, ages 1-4, killed in Lilburn meth lab fire, 17 Feb 2011

    Evidently he fled after the fire and is still being sought... Since they know his identity, I'm hoping it's just a matter of time before someone notifies LE of his whereabouts. So tragic...

    Man sought in deaths of 3 children in suspected meth lab fire

    Atlanta (CNN) -- Investigators in Georgia were looking Friday for a man who left the scene of a suburban Atlanta house fire that killed three children, authorities said.

    They said the fire was caused by a suspected methamphetamine lab in the Lilburn, Georgia, home.

    Gwinnett County Police Capt. Jake Smith said Ivan Gonzalez had been charged with two counts of murder Friday, a day after firefighters found him attempting to douse the blaze with a garden hose.

    Gonzalez, who Smith said received burns in the fire, told authorities he was a family member and was headed to the hospital to be near the children injured in the fire.

    Gonzalez, who is not related to the children, never reached the hospital, authorities said. Authorities checked other area hospitals and did not find Gonzalez.

I apologize in advance to anyone whose potential involvement is contemplated in error. Please understand that much of what is happening is merely brainstorming during unfortunate events.

    I saw this on JVM tonight. It seems LE is worried that he's going to flee to Mexico.

    Such a shame - I hope they fry this mother. She ran out of the burning building and just stood there screaming "my babies" yet she didn't think to carry them out with her?

    I hope they catch this guy too.

    Oh how awful. Poor littles.

    A meth lab.

    Hopefully they catch his sorry tail and quick. Still nothing is going to bring those kids back. I pray they didn't suffer.

    It may have ended their suffering!

    Children who live in clandestine Meth labs .... SO SAD!

    The children were rescued by three TEENAGE BOYS!!!! way to go guys!

    Connor, his friend identified as Joshua, and a third passerby who had a ladder worked quickly to get the children out of the home. The teens told Philips the children were unconscious in an upstairs room.
    “We climbed on the roof and brought the children through the window,” Joshua said. “I would pass them to someone else.”

    They said his face may have been burned by the fire. Investigators told Kavanaugh that Gonzalez was last seen driving a late model silver or gray Honda Accord or Civic. Gonzalez also uses the alias John McGowan Torres, police said. Smith said he may flee the state or try to cross into Mexico.
    Good, I hope he was burned. Horribly, painfully burned.

    Teenage boys! Poor youngsters always in the news for negative things. This was immensely brave of them.

    Beautiful children. I have to go see if they found the a*s yet.

    Thank you, Connor, Josh and passerby.

    Nope still out there. He uses the AKA John McGowan-Torres.

    "Mom" denied bond.

    Nine pounds of liquid meth, and I think it said four pounds ready to go meth and a ton of loot in the walls. Hard cash.

    These people are traffickers alright.

    Exclamation Children getting killed! because of meth?

    5 children dead in 5 days! 2 stabbed Feb 10, and 3 die in meth explosion Feb 15.
    Ivan Gonzalez and his drug distribution, may be the cause all 5 children's deaths!

    Police have been unable to locate him.

    Ivan Gonzalez 26 still unapprehend after 3 children die in meth explosion! he may be headed to Mexico. Police report he might be driving a green Chevrolet Trail Blazer.

    Gonzalez had been arrested 5 days prior to explosion but was released, by police

    "Gonzalez was arrested Feb. 10 while at a house in Suwanee with Antonio Cardenas-Rico, who was wrongly accused in the stabbing deaths of his girlfriend's two young sons. The murder charges against Cardenas-Rico were dropped two days later when investigators charged the children's father."

    Gonzalez was originally arrested on a charge of having false documents -- he presented a fake Georgia driver's license with the name John McGowan Torres -

    Exclamation 5 Gwinnett homicides in 8 days all under 4 years old!

    The case marks five Gwinnett homicide victims ages four and younger killed in the previous eight days.


    http://www.gwinnettdailypost.com/hom...116476358.html

    Press Conference


    Probably Unrelated to stabbing of 3 boys under 3 last week in same area.

    "In a strange twist, authorities said Gonzalez was arrested last week on false documents charges at a Suwanee home where police found murder suspect Antonio Cardenas-Rico, 28.

    Cardenas-Rico was later cleared in the fatal stabbings of two Lawrenceville boys, ages 1 and 3, when surveillance videos at an ATM and businesses proved he was elsewhere. He remains in jail on drug charges.

    The boys’ father, Elvis Garcia, 23, is charged in the slayings. The third son he allegedly stabbed, Joshua, 3, remains in critical condition.

    Smith and others said the two incidents do not appear to be related. There’s no known connection between the two crime scenes, Porter said."

    MOOI am curious. Seems to me they are related! This man Gonzales... who is on the run knew both the mothers of all 6 of these children and 5 are now dead! While Gonzales didn't stab tyhe other babies, meth may be at the root ya think?

    Wow. What are the chances? That's no co-inky-dink.

    FIVE little kids. Five. Dead. All linked by this guy aka John McGowan Torres.

    Antonio Rico busted anyway on drug charges.

    Meth. That's a nasty, awful drug.

    That fire is haunting me. I can't even begin to imagine.
