  1. This is not a simple case of murder. Like 1 of the cops said, its about “money, greed, revenge.” It’s very hard to judge someone who feels he/she has been cheated by his business partners unless you’ve been in a similar situation. Partnerships, like friendships and marriages, can go from good to bad very quickly. Mr. Serrano had tried using the courts for a remedy, but the courts didn’t provide him any relief, so he took matters into his own hands. I’m not excusing what he did – I’m simply explaining it.

    • He was a loser and his family are all lowlifes, his son got away with the murders because he bribed someone for an alibi. Nelson was given an opportunity to join a business and he and his son stole from it, numerous times. The courts revealed that and then he killed those he felt took away his gravy train. I wish he and his son were dead already!!

  2. I hate seeing latin people involved in crimes.Makes me so embarrassed.Awful crime.Heartbreaking.Theres no excuse to murder!
