    GA - Martin Romero, 33, & four children stabbed to death, Loganville, 6 July 2017

    4 children and husband found stabbed to death. Mom was depressed over her father's death. Neighbors say she may have been in house with deceased for as long as 24 hours. Apparently a 5th child was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.


    "A woman in police custody after four children and a man were found stabbed to death early Thursday morning in a Gwinnett County home is the “primary suspect,” Gwinnett police Cpl. Deon Washington said. “We are not searching for anyone else".”

    Horrible and incomprehensible.

    This reminded me of the Shanynthia Gardner case, which I just updated. She was indicted in January.

    If you scroll down that Facebook page, you'll see an interview with a Gwinnett officer. It's been a busy night for our small county. Gwinnett is one county over, but Loganville spans both Walton and Gwinnett.

    Good lord.

    Neighbors told Artz that the woman was depressed about her father dying.


    Investigators haven't released the victims' identities, but said all of the children were under 10-years-old and their father was in his mid 30s.

    Police said the victims' wife/mother was taken into custody. Investigators also believe she made the 911 call.


    Seems too 'slam dunk' to say the "mother" was depressed about her dad passing away.
    What could those little children have possibly done to deserve such a terrible fate ?
    Thinking about the surviving child --praying for his/her recovery. But this kid will most likely never be the same. Unless it's too young to remember anything that happened ---that would be a mercy !

    Wonder if the suspect was on meds ?
    Not sure if this is true, but I've read about some anti-depressants causing freakish behavior.
    As if the cure is worse than the illness !

    Mom arrested and identified.


    "Isabel Cartuno Martinez was in custody at the Gwinnett County Detention Center, sheriff’s Deputy Shannon Volkodav said.

    Volkodav said Martinez had been booked into the county jail in relation to the Loganville homicides, but charges were not available as of about 1:30 p.m."

    This link has a photo of mom, appears to be a mugshot. If it is, it is very disturbing.

    "Investigators believe the suspect, whose name was not released, called 911 at 4:47 a.m. from inside the Emory Lane home"

    "“It’s reasonable to believe they were in the home all night,” Washington said."

    "Neighbor Pedro Ramirez, 15, said the slain children would ride bikes all the time in the neighborhood. They always came out to play when their cousin knocked on the door, he said. However, that didn’t happen when the cousin knocked about 4 p.m. Wednesday, Ramirez said"

    The poor child left behind is essentially now alone in the world. Poor thing.

    ETA - I simply cannot imagine the horror of being stabbed by your own mother.

    I think that is her mugshot, it looks like she's wearing a suicide vest, in spite of her gleeful and truly upsetting expression.
