    Amber Alert issued for boys, father after Phoenix killings

    Sep 1st 2018 9:25PM

    PHOENIX (AP) — An Amber Alert was issued Saturday for two young brothers and their biological father missing since the boys' mother and a male housemate were found fatally shot in the Phoenix home where police said the victims and boys lived.

    The alert said 47-year-old Dimas Coronado may have fled to Mexico with the boys, but Sgt. Armando Carbajal, a police spokesman, said investigators had no firm indication of the whereabouts of Coronado or the boys.

    Their father, Dimas Coronado, 47, is accused of murdering their pregnant mother and another man before fleeing with the boys.

    Phoenix police issued an arrest warrant Sunday for Coronado after the bodies of Oralia Nunez, 24, and Omar Gonzalez, 34, were found Saturday inside a mobile home near 32nd Avenue and Van Buren Street, police said.

    Coronado is described as a Hispanic male, approximately 5 feet 4 inches tall and 180 pounds, with brown hair, brown eyes and a mustache. He has been known to wear glasses.

    Father of slain pregnant woman says her partner was violent

    The father of a pregnant woman who was killed in Phoenix and whose two young sons are missing said her partner had a history of domestic violence involving her.

    Television stations KTVK-KPHO reported Sunday night that Joaquin Nunez-Calderon said during a telephone interview from Mexico that 47-year-old Dimas Coronado slapped and hit Oralia Nunez.

    U.S. and Mexican authorities are seeking Coronado on a three-count homicide warrant in the shooting deaths Saturday of Nunez, her fetus and a housemate.

    Police have said Nunez was at least seven months pregnant and the couple had a history of domestic issues. They were married but had been estranged for two months.

    “Violent. He’s always been violent. Never did I like him as my daughter’s partner because from the very beginning I knew he treated her bad,” Nunez-Calderon said.

    He said he hopes the two boys are returned safely and then he would like justice.

    Missing Phoenix Boys: Amber Alert Issued Out Of Mexico

    An Amber Alert for two Phoenix boys believed to have been taken by their biological father remains in effect. Phoenix police believe the boys' father, Dimas Coronado, 47, may have fled to Mexico with the children.

    According to AZ Central, an Amber Alert for the boys, Jonathan Nunez-Coronado, 5, and Victor Nunez-Coronado, 8, has been issued out of Mexico City. An arrest warrant has been issued for Dimas Coronado for three counts of homicide, a Phoenix police spokesman told Patch via email. The spokesman also said there were no updates in the case of Tuesday morning.

    Phoenix police: Amber Alerts take time to issue

    Tuesday night, a statewide Amber Alert was still in effect after police believed two young boys were kidnapped over the weekend by their father.

    It was just before 4:30 on the morning of Sept. 1 when Phoenix Police responded to the call at a home on West Van Buren Street.

    Officers walked into the home where they say they found two people shot. They were the boys’ pregnant mother, Oralia Nuñez and their roommate, Omar Gonzalez. Both adults and Nuñez’s unborn child were pronounced dead.

    “We have a crime scene. We have to secure it. There’s measures taken in order to do that,” Sgt. Armando Carbajal with the Phoenix Police Dept. told 12 News.

    Though police said they were told by a relative the boys were missing, an Amber Alert wasn’t triggered automatically; instead, a process of elimination began.

    “Are these children somewhere hiding, perhaps in the house? Are they at a neighbor’s? Did family come pick them up? We just weren’t sure at that time and that’s what makes these investigations so time consuming and cumbersome,” Carbajal said.

    Before asking the Arizona Department of Public Safety to issue an Amber Alert, there are some requirements. A child must be abducted. There must be a risk of immediate danger, serious bodily injury or death, and officers must know the child didn’t run away or was taken in some sort of child custody dispute.

    After some digging in the West Van Buren Street case, detectives named the children’s biological father, Dimas Coronado, a suspect.

    The Amber Alert was finally issued six hours after police were first called.

    “We want to make sure that we get it right, we’re not violating anybody’s rights and we’re not putting out misinformation,” Sgt. Carbajal said.

    Police believed Coronado took his sons, Jonathan and Victor Nuñez Coronado, to Mexico. Investigators thought Coronado may be driving an aqua green 1995 Ford F-150 pickup with a white camper shell and the Mexico license plate ZUD7164.

    If you’ve seen the vehicle, Coronado or the boys, call 911.


    6 hours seems pretty fast for an AMBER Alert, unfortunately.

    Mother killed in Amber Alert case had order of protection against boys' father

    Oralia Nuñez was one of the two victims in a homicide this past weekend in Phoenix. Her two sons are still missing, and Phoenix police say their father is the suspect.

    Court records reveal Nuñez filed an order of protection against Dimas Coronado, the boys' father, just months ago.

    Documents show Coronado was ordered to stay away from Nuñez and their two sons, 8-year-old Victor and 5-year-old Jonathan, and barred from possessing firearms.

    Those who knew Nuñez say she was a victim of domestic violence.

    An anonymous acquaintance speaking in Spanish said she would remember Nuñez "as a woman that fought for her life, that fought until the last minute for her kids."

    Nuñez took her battle to court in June, claiming Coronado grabbed her by the hair, dragged her and hit her in the face and head after she confronted him about a condom she found in his pocket.

    "She was pregnant and he would hit her," the acquaintance said.

    After telling her to wash the blood off her face, arms and clothes, Coronado locked Nuñez in a trailer for more than 12 hours, she stated in the document. She was able to escape to a friend's house and call police the next morning.

    Nuñez testified in court that Coronado had threatened to kill her.

    Coronado was served with the order in late July but friends said he constantly violated the order and calls to Phoenix PD were frequent in the weeks that followed.

    "f the suspect is located and we have probable cause to arrest them for violation of that order which would be a charge of interfering with judicial proceedings, we would make an arrest at that time," Phoenix PD Sgt. Armando Carbajal said.

    Those who knew Nuñez say an arrest never came; instead, she hoped the legal document would protect her.

    Two and a half months after filing the order of protection, a pregnant Nuñez and her roommate were shot dead in their home, and her two boys have gone missing.

    Father of murder victim pleas for grandsons to be returned

    The father of 24-year-old Oralia Nunez, who was murdered in her home near 32nd Avenue and Van Buren, is praying for his grandsons to be safely returned.

    "I don't know if it was his age, jealously or what it may have been, my daughter never talked to me about it but I noticed they had issues. There were times he hit her and slapped her," said Joaquin Nunez-Calderon, Oralia's father, over the phone.

    Phoenix Police said in a press conference on Saturday that there was a history of domestic issues between the couple.

    "Violent. He's always been violent. Never did I like him as my daughter's partner because from the very beginning I knew he treated her bad."

    Oralia's roommate came home around 4:30 a.m. Saturday and found her and their other roommate, 34-year-old Omar Gonzalez suffering from gunshot wounds. Gonzalez was pronounced dead at the scene. Oralia died at the hospital. She was 8 months pregnant.

    Nunez-Calderon said Dimas, Oralia and the kids moved to Arizona from Mexico 2 1/2 years ago.

    "We don't have a permission to cross over and be with her. It's affects me a lot," her father said.

    Nunez-Calderon said they need help getting Oralia's body back to Mexico, but their first order of business is to get the boys back safely.

    "First and foremost, I would like to have my grandsons back. Then I would like justice."

    It says that the mom moved here from Mexico two years ago. Are she and her children then still citizens of Mexico? It doesn't say if the wanted father is here legally. Is he a citizen of Mexico? If he is and he took them across the border, would there be a record of his travel back? If he isn't legally in the US, would that make it harder or easier to cross back? How does that work at the border?

    Good questions and I don't know! The Border has become so political that it's hard to get information about the truth.

    Amber Alert for 2 missing Phoenix boys still active one year later

    It's been one year since an Amber Alert was issued for two boys after their pregnant mother and roommate were found dead in their Phoenix home.

    "It's been a year, and we'll see if we can find the whereabouts of the suspect and the grandkids," said Joaquin Nunez Calderon, Oralia's father, in a phone interview.

    Police believed that Victor and Jonathan were with their biological father, 47-year-old Dimas Coronado, and he was considered to be armed and dangerous.

    Calderon said Coronado had a violent history with his daughter and the two were recently separated. She was fighting for custody of her kids.

    "With what he did, you lose trust in everything," Calderon said.

    Last September, photos of the children and Coronado were on billboards around the state, and an Amber Alert was issued. However, the case slowly disappeared, and the boys were never found.

    "What's been the most worrisome part is that we don't know where the grandkids are. That's what worries us. I don't know how they are doing. Who knows if they're with him or if they exist or don't exist," Calderon said.

    Police believed at the time that Coronado took the boys to Mexico.

    Calderon said he's heard rumors about sightings of the boys and Coronado in Mexico but nothing concrete.

    "There's been talk but nothing concrete that they've seen them. That's just how people talk," Calderon said. "I want to tell them to come back to us. We're waiting for them. We're always going to be waiting for them. I hope they come back someday."

    The Department of Public Safety said there is still an active Amber Alert because the children are still missing.

    Phoenix police said they are checking with their investigators about any updates on this case.

    Coronado was believed to be driving in an aqua green Ford truck with a Mexico license plate of ZUD7164. The truck may also have a white camper shell.
