Give the Gift of Eternal Peace to Oscar

Dear friends and family,

My name is Luis Martinez and my wife is Lillian Arriaza, and our son Oscar Maradiaga of 23 years old was brutally murdered in his home on the night  of December 1, 2018 around 8:00 PM. 

It is with much sorrow and pain to acknowledge his death as he was such a sweet and loving soul and most importantly, son. His death came so unexpectedly as his young self never went out nor associated himself with any one really and spent each of his days working hard in his construction job to create a life for the woman he fell in love with and her son. His partner, Sarah Rodrigues, unfortunately had an obsessed former lover that apparently had targeted our son, Oscar, for months in order to find out where they lived and worked in order to kill him. Her past lover, father of the child Oscar parented, succeeded in his mission this past Saturday Winter night by racing to Oscar and his partners home on a drugged infused mission to kill Oscar. With no regard towards the fact that their 3 year old child would obviously be in the home. The mans name is Alex Quiroz-Soriano. Alex arrived at their home around 8PM Saturday night banging on the front door to lure Oscar close, when Oscar looked through the window to see who was knocking so hard, that is when Alex shot his first two direct shots that impacted his face, making him immobile. Alex then jumped through the shot up window to go inside and finish killing Oscar with five move direct shots. All this, while Alex and Sarahs' baby from their previous relationship, was inside. Oscar also leaves his partner, Sarah, 7 months pregnant. 

Our son was killed just before the holidays and at such an economically insufficient time in our lives that we are lost and distraught trying to figure out how to accommodate funeral costs into our very tight budget.  Part of the high funeral cost is the cost for forwarding his remains to Honduras, so that the rest of his family, including his 4 year old daughter, will have a chance to say their goodbyes as well, and most importantly because it was always his wish to be buried in the land he was born in. As his parents, we would love to be able to fulfill that wish.

Family and friends, it is with much humbleness that I ask of you this holiday season to please contribute towards our set GoFundMe goal with anything that you can help out with. Your Random Act of kindness will not go unnoticed nor unappreciated. Thank you all again.

Queridos amigos y familiares,

Mi nombre es Luis Martínez y mi esposa es Lillian Arriaza, y nuestro hijo Oscar Maradiaga, de 23 años, fue brutalmente asesinado en su casa la noche del 1 de diciembre de 2018 alrededor de las 8:00 PM.

Es con mucho dolor y tristeza reconocer su muerte ya que era un alma tan dulce y amorosa y más importante, hijo. Su muerte se produjo de manera tan inesperada porque apesar de ser joven el nunca salia ni se asoció con nadie de malas ideas, y pasó cada uno de sus días trabajando duro en su trabajo de construcción para crear una vida para la mujer de la que se enamoró y para su hijo. Su pareja, Sarah Rodrigues, desafortunadamente tenía una antiguo pareja obsesionado, que aparentemente había amenasado a nuestro hijo, Oscar, durante meses para averiguar dónde vivían y trabajaban para matarlo. Su pareja anterior, padre del niño que Oscar cuido como padre, tuvo éxito en su misión el sábado pasado en la noche de invierno, corriendo hacia el hogar de Oscar y su pareja con una meta para matar Oscar, influenciada por drogas. Sin tener en cuenta el hecho de que su hijo de 3 años, obviamente estaría en el hogar. El nombre del hombre es Alex Quiroz-Soriano. Alex llegó a su casa alrededor de las 8PM el sábado a la noche, golpeando la puerta de la casa para atraer a Oscar, cuando Oscar miró por la ventana para ver quién estaba golpeando tan fuerte, es cuando Alex disparó sus dos primeros disparos directos que impactaron su rostro, haciéndolo inmóvil. Alex luego saltó por la ventana para entrar y terminar de matar a Oscar con cinco tiros directos. Todo esto, mientras que el bebé de Alex y Sarah de su relación anterior, estaba dentro. Oscar también deja a su pareja, Sarah, embarazada de 7 meses.

Nuestro hijo fue asesinado justo antes de las fiestas navidenas y en un tiempo tan económicamente insuficiente en nuestras vidas que estamos pasando, perdidos y angustiados tratando de averiguar cómo acomodar los costos del funeral en nuestro presupuestos muy ajustados. Parte del alto costo del funeral es el costo de enviar sus restos a Honduras, de modo que el resto de su familia, incluida su hija de 4 años, también tendrán la oportunidad de despedirse, y lo más importante, porque siempre fue su deseo ser enterrado en la tierra en la que nació. Como sus padres, nos encantaría poder cumplir ese deseo.

Familia y amigos, les pido con mucha humildad esta temporada festiva para que contribuyan a nuestro objetivo GoFundMe establecido con cualquier cantidad con la que puedan ayudar. Su acto aleatorio de bondad no pasará desapercibido ni despreciado. Gracias a todos de nuevo.
