Dad killed wife, son’s girlfriend, and one more – Son killed Dad over Washing Machine dispute on New Year’s Eve.
[EYES AND VOICE] A New Year’s Eve argument over washing machine in California ended in a mass shooting. A man killed his wife and two others, before his son fatally shot him.
The man shot dead his wife, his son’s 48-year-old girlfriend, who also lived at the property in Rowlands Height, California, as well as a 27-year-old man who was visiting.
Local Police stated: “We’re still trying to corroborate the versions of events that occurred and what we’re being told occurred,
“It looks like it was a dispute between the dad and the son’s girlfriend, probably over using the washing machine. For some reason, this set the dad off.”
The son, Christopher Morey and his girlfriend were staying at the Rowland Heights house to look after the 54-year-old mother, who had recently suffered a stroke. “They had been taking care of her,” Corina (a neighbour) said. “She was in a hospital bed there in the middle of the living room.”
According to reports, The Dad, a 54-year-old man was a heavy drinker with a large gun collection. The family of the visiting 27-year-old man who was killed told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune his name was Ernesto Calzadilla and that he had an eight-month-old daughter.
The visiting man’s mother, Maria Cruz confirmed that her son, Ernesto Calzadilla was among the dead. She did not know the family, but her son had socialised with them.
“He would always come around and hang around here because they were really nice to him,” Cruz said. “I think the dad had some issues, mental issues.”
Corina, a neighbour said the family was known for partying. “It looks like they drink heavily every day”.
Christopher Morey, the 33-year-old son managed to wrestle the semi-automatic pistol away from his father and shot him. Morey is being held on suspicion of murder and on $1m bail, Eyes and Voice learned.
