Texas Father Accused Of Strangling 2 Baby Sons To Death And Sending Photos Of Bodies To Ex
The chilling text messages a young father sent to his ex before allegedly murdering their two young children were revealed in court on Friday.
Gabriel Armandariz, 32, of Graham, Texas, is accused of strangling his two sons, Gatlin, 2, and Luke, who was just 8-months-old in April 2011.
This shortly after he sent a string of chilling and odd text messages to their mother telling her he planned to kill the boys because of her partying ways while possibly pretending to be his new girlfriend.
‘I commend the spirits of these two boys to the Lord. I would much rather be with them than to be out partying with friends,’ wrote Armandariz to his ex, Lauren Smith, just hours before the boys are believed to have died.
This was quickly followed by another in which he wrote; ‘Look, I’m trying to offer you another opportunity to see our children. But as usual you would much rather be with your friends.’
What makes this story even crazier is that Lauren thought the sick messages were being sent to her by Gabriel’s new bae.
This seems to be backed up by the woman’s responses to these texts, as she wrote in one; ‘If I were you I’d get the hell away from him. Looks can be deceiving.’
On the day the boys died, Armandariz also sent a photo to Smith that appeared to show Luke dead and dangling from the closet with rope around his neck.
This was followed by the final text, which also showed both boys alive and lying next to him, and read; ‘We love u, goodbye.’
Is this not one of the sickest, most disturbed things you’ve ever read? Text messages of dead children??? Jesus, Mary, and Joseph…SMFH.
R.I.P. to those poor little boys.
