Hetero Every Child Deserves a Mother and a Father

Twelve-year-old Ismael Nicholas Bugarin could barely stand as he and his two little sisters ran to a neighbor’s house for help Saturday evening, knife wounds on their faces and necks.
Carlos Zavala opened the door when he heard the children banging and yelling. Ismael, known as Nick, collapsed into Zavala’s arms. He had a broad slash across his throat, and a 12-inch knife fell from his sweater, Zavala said.
Nick died in Zavala’s home in the Valley View Mobile Home Park in Dodge Center, about 20 miles west of Rochester. Next door, the children’s mother, Teresa Bugarin, 27, soon would be found dead. Her husband, Ismael Bugarin, 33, was found alive with apparent stab wounds…. When the children burst in on Saturday night, Nick’s sisters, 8-year-old Jasmine and 6-year-old Sabrina, clung to Castellanos. One had a slash on her cheek, the other a cut under her chin.
When Castellanos asked them what had happened, the girls cried, “My dad! My dad!”
