    Just speculating.

    One can hire someone to eliminate, or help eliminate, others, and then have that person beat oneself severely, but not fatally.

    About the speculation, I knew I had seen that but then couldn't find recently. According to that, he wasn't unconcious when he was found. But according to the other article, he was in critical condition and couldn't talk. I have also seen that he was hit with the same weapon that killed his wife and daughter. Now he is still "unable to communicate." So maybe a throat injury? If it happened at the same time as the murders, 24 hours with no treatment there would have been considerable swelling.

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Or if the mother caught him raping the daughter, the mother could have injured him then had the weapon taken from her. LOL I'm not sure where the weapon went from there. Maybe the kid took it when he left to make sure it wasn't used again? Maybe it was hidden in during the 24 hour period before the murders were discovered?

    I really don't understand how the father could possibly be involved. The mother, daughter and the father are said to have similar injuries made with something like a claw hummer. But the weapon is not found on the scene. So how could he possibly get the head injuries so severe that he is in the hospital yet the murder weapon is missing?
    Just my opinion

    With head trauma, his brain could be affected.

    That's what I assumed, which is why it didn't sound to me like it could be self-inflicted.

    It sure is gutsy of someone to take on a fighter, a man who owns a gym, and probably works out every day. As a rule, pedophiles don't take the hard route. [ except for in the Groene case, for example]

    But it almost seems as though it was someone trying to get even with the father Maybe another fighter, someone he trained at his gym.

    Sounds to me like someone had a beef with the father.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    Arrest Made!

    A 22 year old man is in custody in connection with the Martinez family slayings and a pair of sexual assaults within the last two weeks.

    Sources said the man was arrested Friday morning and was being interviewed by Las Vegas police homicide detectives.

    http://www.lvrj.com/news/suspect-arr...149274255.html

    They just announced the sexual assaults and a description of the guy last night. I never dreamed he would be the murderer too.

    thank goodness. Sounds like this menace needed caught and fast.

    The article suggests DNA links him to the crimes so hopefully he will be going away for a very long long time.

    I am beside myself knowing this guy has been loose on the streets brutally and randomly attacking people in my city. Thank God he's been caught.

    The father and patriarch of the family, Arturo Martinez, remains in a local hospital and is in and out of surgery. His injuries have still left him unable to speak with anyone, let alone with detectives who want to know what happened inside the home.

    I have pretty openly put out there that I believed the father/hubby should be a suspect in the crime. With the latest news I admit I was wrong, and I apoligize to him and to the family. My only defense is that I have just seen so many where the hubby was to blame that I was too quick to judge.

    Uh oh

    Just got this breaking news bulletin:

    Despite earlier reports, Las Vegas police say no arrests made yet in the double murder of Yadira Martinez and her daughter, Karla Martinez, or a sexual assault case police talked about Thursday. Police say they are currently interviewing people in connection with these crimes, but no arrests have been made.

    I was talking to my neighbor, whose son is a trainer at the boxing gym here about this case and he says a boxer is so arrogant with their skills, that he does think it was the father because a weapon was used.

    Has the neighbor, who he had words with over the parking incident been cleared?

    I am very curious whether they have the DNA reports back but no actual suspect? And that was misreported as them having a suspect in custody?
    Just my opinion
