7-Year-Old Witnesses Double Murder, One Victim Was His Own Mother
The suspect was last seen driving one of two vehicles, either a PT Crosier or a charcoal Beige Ford F-150 pick up truck.
On November 14, 2016, just before 6 a.m. police in Avenal, California say they found the bodies of a man and a woman, both shot at close range. The victims were identified as Ignacio "Nacho" Contreras and his girlfriend, Maria "Mari" Clauida Corales Cobral. Contreras was outside on the front porch and Cobral was found inside the living room.
Investigators also found a 7-year-old boy inside the home. The child was alive and not only a witness, but reports say he tried to prevent the killings. The boy was also able to give the biggest lead to authorities. He told them the alleged killer was his own father, Frank "Francisco" Contreras who was 43-years-old at the time.
Reports say Contreras was seen in Los Angeles, CA, but hasn't been seen since.
