There Once Was a Family

A father and a mother with a little girl named Jasimine. Then little twin sons were born. But all was not well. An in-law says that he once saw the mother with a black eye.

“She said (Analco) was the one who punched her I told her to go to the police. She didn’t say nothing. He told her he was going to kill her”

At some point the couple split up, and the mother moved in with her sister and a male friend of her sister’s. Neighbors say it was a rental home and they did not know the residents well. Police say they had had little contact with the household.

It was a quiet night in a quiet neighborhood Saturday night. About 10:30 pm there were noises, but many neighbors thought it was firecrackers. Someone did call police.

Police got a call at 10:36 pm. Police aren’t saying much about what they found when they arrived. They have announced they found 6 bodies in the home, 3 female adults and one male adult and two babies. In a car near the home they found a two year old little girl, with a gunshot wound to her chest.  

Police haven’t announced the identity of any of the dead or wounded. But a couple of family members have talked about what they know.

Vanessa Iverson’s mother said she didn’t live at the house, but she was visiting there Saturday night. Vanessa was 19. Her mother described her as a mediator, the type of person who when there was an argument would always try to get the persons to stop arguing. She didn’t live in the home, she had just gone there to visit a friend who lived there. Her brother said he had talked with her about 9 pm and everything seemed fine.

A cousin of the father of the children says one of the persons in the house was Ambrocio Analco. He had been to the cousin’s home on Saturday and had the children with him. He left about 9 pm to take the children home. The cousin has said of Analco:

“He loves his kids, he wouldn’t do anything to hurt them,” he said. “He wasn’t drinking. He didn’t do anything. He was just there to see his kids. I’m upset, but I’m angry, too. What kind of person would do that?”

It is believed the mother of the children was Nicole McAffee, she and the children lived in the home with her sister and her sister’s friend.

The sister is believed to be one of the victims, friends have identified her as Ashley Huerta.

The twin babies, at this time it is not known for sure how old they were, but are thought to have been about 2-3 months old.

Little Jasimine was 2 years old. Police found her in the car with a gunshot wound to her chest. She was left wounded, in pain and alone. She was taken to a hospital then transferred to at least one more hospital (some reports say two hospitals) where she was admitted in critical condition. Police have announced today that her condition has been upgraded to serious.

The sister’s male friend who lived in the household was not injured. His brother named him as Gaspar Huerta (I have also seen it spelled Caspar Huerta.) He is thought to have heard the gunfire and escaped through a window of the second story of the home.

Police aren’t saying much about what they believe happened in the home. But they say it was a complex scene and they are still investigating. They are attempting to determine what happened and how the victims were connected. A district attorney has announced that it was a “domestic situation.” But neither the police or the district attorney are saying whether they believed it was a murder suicide or whether anyone was under arrest,

“nor are they seeking anyone, but nothing can be ruled out. There are still unanswered questions.”

Some family members have said the bodies were found scattered throughout the home.

One Saturday there were 5 adults, a 2 year old and two little babies gathered at one home. By night’s end there were only one adult and one little girl still alive. The little girl lost her mother, her father, and her two baby brothers. Some family lost their two daughters (the sisters.) Another family lost a son (cousin) and another family lost their young daughter/sister.

Police are being careful. They don’t want to accuse anyone of murder, if it isn’t justified. But families are out there knowing the worst thing they could imagine has happened to their family, and they don’t understand what happened.

Eventually they will get some details, some idea of what happened. But some things cannot be determined by a police investigation. One question they will never be able to answer is why, why their child/children.

One of the neighbors said something that really stood out to me:

“It’s tragic. It’s getting worse all the time,” he said. “If we want to, we can put a stop to this.”

I don’t know how, but I do know we must put a stop to this.

The 911 tapes have been released and some of the conversation has been transcribed in the media articles below. Gaspar Huerta was the one to make the 911 call and told the dispatcher that someone was in the home killing everyone and that he saw it.

The dead have been identified as

— Amborosio Analco, 23, of Delavan.

— Nicole Marie McAffee, 19, of 309 S. Second St., Delavan.

— Ashley Lynn Huerta, 21, of 309 S. Second St., Delavan. — Vanessa L. Iverson, 19, of W7772 Wisconsin Parkway, No. 21, Delavan.

— Argenis Analco and Isaiah Christian Analco, who would have been 7 months old Tuesday. They were the twin sons of Nicole McAffee and Amborosio Analco.

There are some indications from police that this may have been a murder/suicide, but still nothing conclusive.

Little Jasimine has been upgraded to good condition.

According to Huerta relatives, Analco was jealous and threatened to kill her if she cheated on him. And also according to them, he had found a letter to her from one of her old boyfriends who is now in prison.

According to reports, the murder weapon was found at the scene.

Corrections: The twins  Argenis Analco and Isiah Christian Analco were only 6 months old, they would have been 7 months old on Tues.

Jasimine Analco is being reported as only being 20 months.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

According to the Huerta, the only living witness, Analco shot Ashley Huerta twice in the back. And that he was shooting everyone in the house, leaving Nicole McAffee for last. Allegedly after he had shot the others, Nicole McAffee had picked Jasimine up and begged him not to shoot her too. But according to media Analco reloaded and shot her too. It is unknown how she ended up outside in a car.

Nicole McAffee’s father has said he didn’t know things were so bad between Analco and his daugther. Like many, his daughter did not tell him. According to what friends have told him, Analco was stealing her mail and he found the letter from the ex-boyfriend on Sat.

Police say all of the evidence is not in, but they have confirmed they believe that Analco was the shooter.

There are different theories and pattterns for different types of family murders with multiple victims. One of those is called ‘family annihilation.’ Experts have said this fits the pattern for family annihilation.

1. Usually male

2. Depression is usually involved and a sense of ownership of the partner.

3. Social isolation

4. A desire for revenge for the one who hurt them.

5. The last act is usually suicide.

    ONCE AGAIN, SOMETHING HIT CLOSE TO HOME FOR ME. WHEN I SAW THE NEWS STORY ON TV AS IT UNFOLDED, I FELT UTTER DISBELIEF THAT SOMEONE COULD GO IN AND OBLITERATE AN ENTIRE FAMILY, NOT TO MENTION DESTROYING OTHER FAMILIES’ LIVES AS WELL. ALTHOUGH I DONT KNOW ANY OF THESE PEOPLE, THEY ONLY LIVED ABOUT 45 MINUTES AWAY FROM MY TOWN AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE THAT SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENS OVER AND OVER AGAIN. THERE WAS AN ARTICLE ON THIS STORY THAT SAID THE FATHER NEVER SHOWED HIS CHILDREN ANY LOVE OR AFFECTION, NEVER HUGGED THEM, KISSED THEM OR EVEN SO MUCH AS PICKED THEM UP AND HELD THEM. WE ALL NEED TO STEP UP AND KEEP A BETTER EYE ON OUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CO-WORKERS, NEIGHBORS. IF WE THINK SOMETHING MAY BE WRONG WE NEED TO STAND UP AND HELP THEM THRU IT, NOT JUST SIT BY UNTIL THE TIME COMES WHERE WE SAY “I TOLD YOU THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN” HAD SOMEONE JUST INTERVENED, THIS FAMILY MAY STILL BE HERE. GRANTED, NO ONE ACTUALLY “SAW” ANYTHING HAPPEN BUT THE SIGNS HAD TO HAVE BEEN THERE. I’M IN NO WAY PLACING BLAME ON ANYONE; MY HEART GOES OUT TO THEM BUT WE MUST STOP SITTING AROUND, “WAITING”. IF YOU THINK SOMETHING MAY BE WRONG, SPEAK UP, SAY SOMETHING, ASK THAT PERSON IF HE/SHE IS IN ANY KIND OF TROUBLE OR DANGER. THAT PERSON MAY SAY NO, EVERYTHING IS FINE BUT AT LEAST WE CAN SAY WE TRIED. THIS MADNESS HAS GOT TO STOP

    Betsey, in most states- not all but most, if the victim doesn’t want to press charges there is little the friends or family can do. They can encourage the victim to file, they can offer support and help to find agencies for them, but they cannot force the victim to either file charges or the leave the abuser.

    I do agree that we need to stop waiting for something terrible to go wrong. We can speak up, offer encouragement and find what resources are available in our areas. We can offer them emotional support (and sometimes even physical support, like her sister did). But they also need to be told about things like restraining orders, filing charges, and shelters. We can remind them of how strong they used to be, and how smart. We can let them know they do have other options. But the final decision is usually theirs.
