A woman who shot her two children, their father and a cousin before committing suicide took video of herself on her iPad as she smoked methamphetamine prior to the killings, police said today

The apparent murder-suicide by 23-year-old Aide Mendez began Sunday morning when she argued with the father of her two children, 33-year-old Eduardo Lopez at their Central Valley, California apartment.

Police arrived to find Lopez outside the Silver Lakes complex with knife and gunshot wounds, said Lieutenant Mark Salazar, homicide commander for the Fresno Police Department.

They heard a muffled shot from inside the first-floor apartment and discovered Mendez had killed herself, her boyfriend’s cousin, Paul Medina, 27, as well as her two children, 17-month-old Aliyah Echeverria and Isaiah Echeverria, three.

The boy was found dead on the scene, Salazar said. Police tried to resuscitate the girl but she later died at the hospital.

‘We do know that drugs played a key role, but we don’t know to what extent,’ Salazar said.
