Valdez-Saldana was Sayuri’s boyfriend and Melany’s mother, who was not home at the time of the murders, the outlet reports.
After Valdez-Saldana killed the three teens, he sexually assaulted a 12-year-old girl, then told her to run away from her.

“They were happy kids,” family friend Suzanna Villa Franca said of Sayuri and Melany, according to ABC 13. “They were always smiling. Even when I was feeling down, they always had a positive comment. Always. Both.”
