    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... :(

    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.”

    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.

    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 -

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

    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? :banghead:

    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.

    Meth is one of the most vile plagues I have ever come across.

    The mother was let out of jail to attend her children's funerals. So heartbreaking - she is practically a babe herself.

    I agree with WAD that meth is a terrible scourge on our communities.

    My prayers for the family that they can heal and eventually find peace amidst all this pain.
