The “obsessed” ex-boyfriend who shot and killed his ex-flame in front of her 8-year-old daughter outside a Texas Children’s hospital — and then took her own life — authorities and the victim’s family say. did
The bleeding happened shortly after 2:00 p.m. Sunday when the couple and child were driving to Houston Medical Center.
Police found the woman, identified as 32-year-old Kenya Osorio, inside the car next to the body of her boyfriend, whose name has not been released. The woman’s terrified 8-year-old daughter was safe in the backseat.
“As far as we know, she was very reserved because she decided to work things out with her husband and be with him,” said Osorio’s brother, Carlos Rivera.
According to the preliminary investigation, Osorio and the man were driving to the hospital to seek medical attention for the woman’s daughter. This was reported by Fox 26.
As they pulled into the West Campus parking lot, the man shot Osorio as he tried to get out of the car, then turned the gun on himself in the front passenger seat. The woman’s daughter was in the back seat and was not injured.
“Everything happened in front of my nephew. I’m sure it’s hard for him to deal with this,” said Rivera.
Osorio’s family said the 32-year-old was married but separated from her husband and began dating the gunman several months ago.
However, Osorio and her estranged husband recently decided to patch things up for the sake of their two children and stay married.
Osorio’s daughter and son are now in the care of their distraught father.
