The city of Oakdale, Minnesota is reeling from its first murder since 2007 and that the discovery of the bodies was none other then a 6-year-old.

Killed in an apparent murder-suicide was mother of three Cintia Guadalupe Ornelas Bustos, age 28, Jaime Anival Almaras Velasquez, 32, and live-in baby sitter Angela Uscanga Gonzalez, age 43.  It is believed the male who had ‘previous problems with alcohol’ and was ‘a little violent’ killed the two women before shooting himself.

It is not known if Bustos and Velasquez were legally married but they are the parents of three children including the 6-year old that found the bodies when she returned from school on Friday.  Police found the other two children in the house unharmed that included 3 and 8-year-old boys.

The young girl fled the house and went to a teen age neighbor sobbing with bloody hands telling the teen her mom and dad were dead.

Velazquez had recently returned from his native Guatemala after an eight month visit and Bustos ran their roofing company in his absence.  The live-in baby sitter only worked for the family for three months.  It is expected the children will end up in a foster care situation according to local reports.
