Not an Acceptable Divorce

Angel Esteves, 26, and his 21-year-old wife, Ingrid Corina Esteves have been married about 4 or 5 years. And police say that Ingrid Esteves was having an affair. They say she met 18-year-old Rafael Quiroz at her job in a warehouse.

Police believe that Ingrid E. and Quiroz planned the death of Angel Esteves. They believe that Ingrid E. somehow lured her husband to an isolated area late on Tues. night, and that Quiroz was waiting there and armed.

Police recieved a call about a burglary, and when they arrived they found Angel Esteves in a car with gunshot wounds to his upper body. Esteves was transported to a hospital where he later died.

No motive is known for the murder, but police believe it was planned. They also don’t believe it was the result of any argument. Police say they are investigating all possible motives including whether the husband had any life insurance. One district attorney has said this may be the couple’s way of getting a divorce.

Both Qiroz and Ingrid Esteves have been arrested and charged with murder. At their first court appearance on Friday, both pled not guilty to the charges. Both are being held on $1 million dollar bond.

The first thing that struck me was the couple was so young to have been married for 4-5 years. While it would have been legal for the them to have a relationship, this situation certainly presents an argument against teen marriage.

Couples do fall out of love, some even have affairs. Most often I see where the spurned spouse elects to kill the cheating spouse, so this one is a bit unusual.

At 26 years old, Esteves would likely have lived more than 50 more years. That is what was taken from him and his family. Had this marriage not been successful, he likely would have remarried perhaps happily.

As for Ingrid E. and Quiroz, had they taken the route of a divorce they could have had a continuing relationship. They may even have married, had children. Instead it is alleged they took what they may have thought was the easy way out. Instead of a relationship or a marriage, they will now have separate cells, if they are unable to come up with a $1 mil. bond. If convicted it will be separate prisons, and whatever relationship they may have will have to be conducted through letters.

At times like this I always think of the families. Angel Esteves’ family will be grieving and trying to notify relatives, plan a funeral or some type of service. They know they will never see their loved one again. They know he died of violence, and if the charges are true- he died as a result of betrayal, from the person who professed to love him and made a vow to love him till death parted them.

But there are also two other families out there in turmoil. At the ages of 18 and 21, their families would have had a lifetime of expectations of and for them. And just like with Esteves’ family, their expectations have been shattered. Likely the news came as a shock, and probably they are not believing these kids could be capable of this crime.

It will take time for it to go to trial, where the evidence against them can be heard. So though they know the “kids” are living, they will be in fear for them and the possibilities the future holds for them.

Three families, entering one of the worst years they have probably ever known.

    I know there is probably much more to this story than what is being portrayed. Perhaps Ingrid suffered spousal abuse and had tried to get someone to kill her husband thinking it was the only way out. Rafael is likely a quiet, polite kid who got tangled up in what he thought was love and did what he thought he could to help his lover free herself from the “monster” she was married to… It will be interesting to see how this plays out, especially since our legal system tends to put the victim on trial… Personally, I think a plea will be the only way to keep these two from getting lethal injection…

  2. August 11, 2006 at 5:23 am

    It is possible that there had been some spousal abuse, though there was no incication of any criminal history of it. And if there was any history, the wife effectively lost her chance at a voice when she allegedly decided to murder. Also, it doesn’t look like a self defense issue, as the police have stated that the wife lured him to the isolated spot where he was murdered.

    Ingrid was a whore, everyone at the warehouse knew it. she talked often of killing her husband and she finally did it. the kid was there but he did not pull the trigger, she did. she wanted the money from a second on the house
    and he said GFY then she shot him. but the kid knows where the gun is but he wont talk so he is an accomplice

    Rafael Quiroz is a very good person he always was there to help out in the family he would suport the family. I think that rafael is to nice of a guy to shoot someone.I think that rafael is one of the most politest person ever.He would work almost all the time just to give his familie what the needed and wanted.

    I think that rafael quiroz is one of the nicest people i’ve ever met. He’s a trustworthy person and hes very polite and has a good personality. Rafael is to nice of a guy to even think about shooting someone. I know that this has to be all Ingrids fault because i think that shes a hoe. She would try to get Rafaels attention by saying that she would buy him things like a car and a house and ect…… But i know Rafael is innocent.

    First off there was no abuse. Angel was too weak to ever stand up to Ingrid.

    As for you JULIO JAUREZ if you have information relevant to the case how about contacting the detective assigned to the case instead of just mouthing off on here. if she was going around saying she was going to kill her husband PLEASE contact the police.

    Jessica you cannot know Rafael is innocent. Ingrid is a whore but shes also VERY manipulative and i dont think she’d be stupid enough to pull the trigger herself. she could have given him some completely false sob story. I dont know rafael but it seems like such a waste of a young life. my heart goes out to his family. i hope the court system doesnt fail yet again to convict Angels murderers.

    I’d like to rephrase my “angel was weak” statement. he was a sweetheart of a man that could never harm ingrid. he was very shy, passive, timid he suffered from a fatal case of “nice guy” syndrome.

    My intention was not to say Rafael is innocent or not. The only people that know what happened are the people there that night. My intention in posting was to clarify that there was NO ABUSE. Ingrid had many alternatives if she really wanted to get rid of her husband. Murder was not one of them! Ingrid is a manipulative person who lived in her own version of reality. Sadly no one put a stop to her before a child was left without a father, and two young men’s lives were ruined. We are now left to clean up a mess that idiot created.

    APRIL: my heart goes out to you, to have your sons life ruined over that trash…..i truely hope the truth comes out and that evil trash is put in jail and your son is cleared. Unfortunately I do know the story…..she was not abused….she may have very well made up stories that she was to generate sympathy or to manipulate people around her. she has a history of taking advantage of people with good hearts. i pray for you and your family.

    ROSE: Your judgment of her is very accurate. Please read what I wrote to your mother….its meant for you as well.

    Lucy maybe you do know igrid better then the rest of us ..but all i know is my nephew is locked up over somthing he didnt and would NOT ever do to someone or for anyone he is very much loved i dont think he let her manipulate him he just made friends with a sick and twisted person..

    P.S BUT LUCY IF YOU DO KNOW THE WHOLE STORY WHY HAVENT
    YOU TOLD THE POLICE TO HELP OUT AN INOCCENT PERSON BECAUSE IF IT WAS YOUR SON OR FAMILY MEMBER YOU WOULD WANT PEOPLE TO COME FORWARD AND TELL WHAT A LIER,AND EVIL PERSON SHE WAS ….BUT THEN AGAIN I KNOW HOW PEOPLE DONT LIKE GETTING INVOLVED ..WE JUST LOVE RALPHIE SO MUCH AND WANT HIM HOME SAFE NOT TO BE LOCKED UP AND HAVE TO FIND HIM INOCCENT YRS AFTER HE’S LOST HIS YOUNG YEARS OVER THIS SICK CRAZY EVIL TWISTED GIRL …

    September 25, 2006 at 5:08 pm

    Christina:

    Sadly I do not have anything that could prove one way or another what actualy happened that night or trust me I’d be the first one at the police station. That is why I urged poster #3 Julio who said he heard her many times plot his death at work to go to the police or investigating detective if he knew and was a witness to her plotting his death.

    I know the whole story as far as her character and her family life. She was not abused nor did she have any logical reason to kill her husband. He was a good man….too good. I suspect he stuck around for the sake of thier child. Why he didnt take that child and go far away I’ll never know. God knows that child would have been better off away from a mother and grandmother like them.

    Ive seen those two (Ingrid and her mother) do so much damage in the past and now this……my god I hope and pray justice is finally served.

    First of all for the record…My name is Buck.
    From what I gathered here on this website…
    1) Lucy is defending the victim ( Angel Esteves ).
    2) ? Lucy how do you know that there was not any kind of abuse in the relationship between Angel & Ingrid ?
    3) I take it that you were the stronger one in bed…when you and Angel got together.
    4) Lucy why don’t you just come forward and tell the TRUTH to the police that you and Angel were having an affair.
    5) Only GOD, Rafael, Ingrid, & her mother knows that RAFAEL is INNOCENT !
    6) Lucy how on the other hand would you know Ingrid is a whore ? Plus how would you know that Ingrid is or was very manipulative…if you’re not screwing her husband (angel) ?
    7) Sounds like you know who pulled that trigger that took Angels’ life away .
    8) Could that quite possibly be that Angel did not want to leave his wife (ingrid) for you…and that you got angry and very upset then took matters into your own hands and fired the round that took the life of Angel ?
    9) How would you know that Ingrid gave Rafael a sob story ?
    10) So Angel was physically abusing her (ingrid).
    11) Lucy why would you want to rephrase yourself “my angel was weak”…to begin with he wasn’t “your” angel…he belonged to ingrid his wife !
    12) You just gave youself up !…Also how would you know he was “a sweetheart of a guy” ? Did he give you flowers & candy for Valentine’s Day ?
    You say “he was timid, shy, possesive, I mean passive,” & so on & so on …until he got into your pantys’ RIGHT, RIGHT !!
    13) There’s no such thing as “Nice Guy Syndrome”…(edited per HSH) !
    14) Take it from a mans’ perspective “ALL GUYS ARE DOGS” (including me), I’m not going to lie.
    15) Come’on Lucy why don’t you just (edited per HSH) clean ! How would you know so much about Ingrid ? Her character, family life, abused or not abused ? You know why Angel wouldn’t leave Ingrid for you…because of the child (right) right . You must be a good friend of Ingrids’ & her mothers’ to know the scoop . Like they say “your best friend can also be your worst enemy (cause they usually know your deepest & darkest secrets).
    16) How could you, just how could you betray a friend (ingrid) & do her husband both ways .
    17) You must be a (edited per HSH), whole, or whatever you call a mistress. “Sorry” let me “rephrase” that…you must be a “HOME WRECKER” right…no I mean “ADULTRESS” correct !
    18) I’d sure like to know your last name…so I can look you up on the internet. I’m sure you have your own website…correct !
    19) Could that be http://www.Lucy is Loose.com or http://www.Juicy Lucy.com…if I am wrong please reply with correct web address !
    THANK YOU VERY MUCH !
    Sincerely Yours,
    BUCK !!

    I’m very sorry for using profanity but why would you discriminate only against me and not Lucy ( September 7 @ 7:06 p.m. ) . C’mon whatzz’ really goin’ on here !!!!!!!!!!! Second paragraph 1st line , second sentence 4th word !!! Quote” Ingrid is a WHORE ” Unquote !!!

  26. November 3, 2006 at 10:22 pm

    Basically, because Ingrid is the accused- not another person who is commenting. Somehow I seem to have a little more sympathy for those who have lost someone, than for those who are accused of killing them. A bit biased of me perhaps.

  27. BUCK said,

    To Whom It May Concern :
    To Our Readers & Commentors :

    If you have been following this unfortunate incident from the gate then you will see my perspective of these wrongful & unjustified accusations against a young but innocent man (until proven guilty) Constitutional Rights (everyone or everybody is innocent until proven guilty) !
    1) Fact : Police never recovered a weapon with Rafael Quiroz’s fingerprints !
    2) Fact : Police should have never accused Quiroz from heresay of a woman with no credibility as a witness !
    3) Fact : All of the newspapers have no right printing statements accusing anyone of any type of a crime without having sufficent evidence to go on , (a) No Gun , (b) No Prints !
    4) Fact : Paper states ” victim later dies at local hospital ” !
    5) Fact : That means when police arrived at the scene of the crime the victim (Esteves) still had life in him ! That means he might have described his assailant or assailants ! (a) man or woman (b) hair or no hair (c) mustache or no mustache (d) white , yellow , black , brown , poka-dot , etc. , etc. !
    6) Fact : So where do these newspapers get-off by printing heresay ! If I’m right this should be declared a mistrial for violation of Constitutional Rights (innocent until proven guilty) !
    7) Fact : The newspapers have this young man convicted before he even went to trial .
    8) Fact : Each & everyone of those newspapers that ran an article on this incident could & should be sewed for discrimination & defamation of character .
    9) Fact : Actually do any of these so-called reporters know this young man (Quiroz) to print heresay against him !
    10) Fact : So what are the authorities waiting for ; cut the Innocent young man loose ; why waste Tax-payers money ; they are just going to find him Innocent !!!

    That is why bond is often offered. But otherwise, I guess that would be between the suspect and his attorney to figure out.

    Look at all the motives the kid could benefit from. Ingrid was going around the warehouse saying she was going to get the kid a new car.They even went out to a dealer and test drove one .Everyone knew they were having an affair that was wrong .Ingrid even talked about having the kids baby.He just wanted a new car.The gossip around here is he got rid of the gun in return for a new car.He is still an accomplice cause he knew where they were going and why .Sometimes greed and drugs dont mix and they were doing them together everyone saw it.If there is no evidence then why is the kid still in jail?Because hes guilty like her for taking her to do her husband.Kid was it worth a new car now.

    The wait for a trial always seems endless. You know they have evidence, you know it is coming, you want to get it over and behind you, but still you have to wait. All I can really say is that they do a lot behind the scenes and in those hearings. They take care of a lot of issues that seem meaningless, but actually have legal ramifications. But if those issues are not taken care of, then it could give him an opening for an appeal. So while the waiting is hard, try to remember that by taking care of those issues now, they are leaving fewer problems that could leave an opening for an appeal later on.

    Thank you for the comforting words Homeweethome.

    I wish I could have the faith the family of the accused has shown in the belief that the boy will be set free or that I had the confidence in our courts to convict. If I could believe one way or the other atleast this seemingly endless months of not knowing would be more bearable.

    I guess I should be grateful that however far off it seems atleast there is an end in sight now.

  63. May 19, 2008 at 10:19 pm

    It is natural to both hope for and dread the trial. You don’t know what will come out, what will be said. And you don’t know what the outcome will be.

    All I can do is assure you that the trial will be here eventually. When it comes, it will be the longest thing you ever sat through, yet will go by too fast. It will be a relief, yet won’t really make you feel better. But it will be one more thing behind you, one more thing accomplished.

    As the day gets closer my prayers are with all the victims in this senseless crime. May justice be done for all wronged parties.

    Quiroz family I hope your suffering finally comes to an end, I cannot imagine unjustly losing a son to this mess. It is true nothing can give you back the last two years but goodness willing you’ll soon have your son back in your arms.

    To the victim himself, I hope justice is done in your name.

    To put a silver lining on all of this we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. 2 more days til the readiness calander and goodness willing no more delays 5 more days til the trial starts.

  82. August 2, 2008 at 1:22 am

    It can take 1-2 or even more years to get to a trial. I know it seems interminable. Sometimes the delays are due to scheduling problems with the court, the prosecution, the witnesses or the defense. But many times there are legal issues being dealt with. It is important for the issues to be dealt with pre-trial, because if they aren’t, then there is a possibility that they can be used for an appeal if the person is convicted.

    The scheduling is getting closer together, so IMO it looks as though it will be coming soon.

    Thank you for your response HomeSweetHome….logically I understand but at the time of the post I was a bit beyond logic. It just felt too much like the rug being pulled out from underneath me yet AGAIN…we were so close. The court calander website said readiness calender 8/1 and Jury Trial 8/4…..then all of a sudden I get a call and BOOM another 2 flippin months!!

  84. August 5, 2008 at 3:13 pm

    I understand that it is frustrating. But if you are mentally prepared for it, then it is easier to accept. Trust that they will get there eventually.

    3 more months… january 26 , 2009 . dear hsh why do they keep on postponing the jury trial ? could it be the defense is looking for a mistrial or ?????

  91. October 17, 2008 at 10:30 pm

    I’m sorry Hear Say, I can’t tell you why. I know that some of it is to do with scheduling for the court and the attorneys, sometimes it has to do with getting all the investigative materials in, sometimes it is due to testing or getting motions heard. All I know is that I am always shocked if a case goes to trial in less than a year. This case is also more complicated in that there are two defendants.

    All I can really tell you is that it will eventually go to trial. And hopefully all these delays will take take care of any appealable issues, so that when it does go to trial, the verdict will be final and strong enough to pass any appeals. So hang in there, and trust in that the trial will come, eventually.

    I feel your frusration Here Say……appearantly due to the upcoming holiday season and the fullness of the court calander this trial was rescheduled for 3 MONTHS from now. After the last two false starts I was not too optimistic of this trial ACTUALLY starting. this has been dragged on for almost 2 and a half years……ridiculous….convict or let them go either way I just want to be able to move on with my life….just make it end…..

    I was a neighbor of this troubled couple. Angel Esteves never had loud arguments with Ingrid. She never had signs of phyical abuse. Angel threw a birhday party for Ingrid at their home, for her 18th birthday.
    Other than that, Ingrid seemed unhappy and rarely ventured outside when she was at home. Angel told me that she wanted a divorce, but that he didn’t want to give it to her. He moved out to a friend’s house for awhile to get his head together. Angel wanted to go to counseling but she wouldn’t go for it. She definitely had a mind of her own. She also had body language like she thoughy she was something. It is not totally out of possibility that she pulled the trigger on Angel. Was the murder weapon ever recovered? The police department apparently was unable to pin down fingerprints, or evidence of shot discharge on either defendant.
    Ingrid was probably ignorant of the fact that she could have pursued divorce without Angel’s consent. Maybe she knew and couldn’t care less. I shared with the detective what I knew.
    God have mercy on the innocent child of the Esteves’. And I hope that justice will prevail for Quiroz if he was not in fact the trgger man.
    The moral of this true story is: Be careful who you become friends with, or who wants you to become a friend. Also, pursue lots of advice and think it through before you commit to marry. Learn to judge character and virtue.
