May 15, 2019

SANTA CRUZ, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say a man and his two children have been found dead inside a mobile home in the Santa Cruz area of northern Santa Fe County.

County Sheriff’s officials say deputies went to the home around 6 p.m. Tuesday after a report of a heavy smell of gas fumes.

They say two bodies were found in the kitchen and the other body was discovered in a bathtub.

A Sheriff’s Office search warrant affidavit identified the three dead as 39-year-old Dominic Mansanarez, 19-year-old Isa Mansanarez and 9-year-old Ventura Mansanarez.

Authorities say it’s unclear what caused the mobile home to fill with gas.

They say Dominic Mansanarez’s mother discovered the bodies on the floor of the home after becoming concerned when no one answered the door Tuesday.
