Security Guard to Be Charged for Double Murder

Janette Mar

Turning to the weekend murders….Today, postmortem examinations were conducted on the bodies of thirty-nine year old cosmetologist Miriam Mai and her sister-in-law, twenty-nine year old Daisy Miralda. The duo was killed on Saturday evening around five-thirty by the estranged common-law-husband of Mai, Andy Bustillos, who turned the gun on himself after he committed what the police say was a deadly crime of passion. Bustillos remains hospitalized at the K.H.M.H. under police guard. But could it have been prevented? All efforts had been made by Mai to get help because she felt her life was in danger. Her family believes that she suffered in silence.

“It’s so devastating to see two bodies like that. And from what I understand, he is alive; that is very hard for us because they didn’t get a chance to live and testify you know I am alive. I would like to say to the people out there, if you ever know that there is a person in an abusive relationship like that and he is going about saying that you know I will kill all these people, don’t keep it alone; say something. If you are living in an abusive situation, don’t keep it in; go and report it because you can save someone’s life like that and we wouldn’t be going through this tragedy like we are today.”

“Mister Bustillos underwent surgery yesterday. He was transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in a critical condition, but now he is listed as being stable, so his condition is improving. So he definitely will be charged for the double murder.”

“What we do hear from friends, residents of Santa Elena and so forth is that basically he was sending a signal, a warning to everyone out there. But we as the family get to know about this until death has already occurred in the family. We understand he mentioned it to a security officer in Three Flags saying I will kill that woman; he mentioned it to several of her friends…he will kill them, the B-word and so forth. So you can say he was giving the signal, the green light of what he was going to do, but everyone just remained silent and that is what is affecting us in society. When we are supposed to speak out, we don’t. So it just hurts to know that my aunt suffered in silence without even getting the assistance from her family. But at least from what we gathered from one of her good friends and customer is that she was happy that day. So at least that gives us some ease.”

    I HOPE…REALLY HOPE THAT YOU GIRLS SEE WHAT A MAN IN LOVE CAN DO WHEN MOTIVATED.
    YOU GIRLS LOVE TO PLAY WITH MORE THAN ONE MAN AND YOU THINK IT IS NICE AND FINE, WELL YOU NOW SEE THE RESULTS OF YOUR LIFE STYLE. I DON`T WANT TO SAY THAT HE DID WHAT IS RIGHT, NO HE DID ALL WRONG, BUT YOU GIRLS ARE CAUSING THE MOTIVATION IN THESE MEN.
    SO GIRLS… THINK BEFORE YOU SAY YES TO A RELATIONSHIP, AND STOP GOING FROM HAND TO HAND LIKE MONEY, RESPECT YOURSELVES.

    Condolence to the family. My concern is this: Even if you do speak up and seek help from the police, nothing will be done besides getting a restraining order. That doesn’t mean nothing to those who have already made up their mind to do something. It is very sad how ppl can take a life so easily and sadly hanging, electric shock and lethal injection is not used for murder sentence.
