Christopher Thomas shoots and kills several women and children as they are relaxing in their home, leaving an 11-month-old as the only survivor
Thomas had allegedly bought drugs from the home owner, Enrique Bermudez, in the past and suspected Bermudez of sleeping with Thomas’ wife. The victims included Bermudez’s pregnant girlfriend and her children.
The group had been relaxing at home when Thomas shot them, reclining in couches, napping, or preparing to feed the baby. The victims, the youngest of whom was only 3, were shot in the head at point-blank range.
Thomas was sentenced to 25-50 years in prison, and was released in January of 2018.
