We have no words. This saddens us to our very core.
The Austin Police Department arrested Jose Aviles last night after he brutally murdered his daughter's girlfriend and the girl's mother.
According to the police, the girls' lesbian relationship had been the source of constant feuding between the two families for months. Late last night, Jose and another unidentified Hispanic man arrived at the home of Maria Hurtado, whose 24 year old daughter, Norma, was dating his. They were let in by Maria and Norma, while Jose's daughter was somewhere else in the house. Moments later, Jose’s daughter heard gun shots and found the two women shot to death. The two men were seen rushing from the home in a green sport utility vehicle and within a few hours, Jose was arrested and charged with capital murder.
Such a horrifying story. This poor girl - we can't imagine what she is going through right now. We just hope she has a strong support system to help her through this extremely difficult time.
Our thoughts are with you. We're so terribly sorry for your loss. Stay strong.
