Dad Kills Baby, Leaves Facebook Suicide Note

WHY would someone kill his own child?

Stephen Garcia and Katie Tagle were involved in a custody dispute over their 9-month-old son Wyatt. Garcia didn't want to live without his ex-girlfriend and he didn't want to share custody -- so he killed himself and their son in an apparent murder-suicide, and put his suicide note on Facebook. Their bodies were found early Sunday on an isolated dirt trail in California.

Our hearts go out to Wyatt's mom. We cannot imagine the pain she is experiencing now.

Tagle filed a request last December for a restraining order against Garcia, but it was denied on Jan. 12 because Garcia was not considered a "threat to petitioner or the minor child."

How awful!

"This was preventable. This didn't have to happen," Tagle's mother, Maria Brown, said the day after Wyatt's death. "The system failed Wyatt. It cost him his life."

It's just heartbreaking. What are the warning signs an ex could snap like this?

Jane Greer, Ph.D., a marriage and family therapist in New York City, says: "In the beginning of a relationship, it's easy to ignore the warning signs of abuse and focus on the positive aspects of a person. After all, you're on a romantic hormonal high, so everything he does seems wonderful."

However, Dr. Greer says to be aware of specific signs a person is capable of hurting you. If your spouse or ex exhibits any of these behaviors, seek help immediately.

• Explosive anger or violence (i.e., throws objects, is physically aggressive)

• Blocks exits or hides car keys to prevent leaving

• Isolates you from family and friends or otherwise limits your contact with the outside world

• Emotional abuse (name-calling, ridicule, frequent criticism)

• Disregards your feelings and has a complete focus on their own needs

If you see these warning signs, Greer says to disengage from the relationship right away and seek help.

What's sad is that Katie DID try to get protection from Stephen -- but she was denied by the court system. That's just shameful.

Perhaps the story that isn’t told here is that Katie Tagle SENT PICTURES OF HERSELF GIVING ORAL SEX TO HER NEW BF, WITH GENITALIA IN CLEAR VIEW, ONE HAND “ON HIM”, THE OTHER HAND FEEDING THE BABY WITH A BOTTLE, AND SENT THESE TO THE BABY’S FATHER WITH THE SUBTEXT “WYWY HAS A NEW DADDY NOW”.

That is a “caring mother”? A “battered woman”? Someone you defend?

The highly explicit, adult picture Katie Tagle took and sent to the baby’s father is visible here, as picture 5 out of 5. This is in the public domain.

From A Birds Eye View April 2, 2010, 1:11 AM

I WOULD FIRST LIKE TO SAY, IN NO WAY DO I CONDONE TAKING THE LIFE OF AN INNOCENT CHILD, AND SUICIDE, TO ME, IS A COWARDS WAY OUT……..Ya, Katie, Stephen was abusive. I have seen the black eyes, but I have also seen the marks on him. BUT, to have your new partner make remarks to Stephen, like, “He is my boy now…” and threats, only to antagonize the situation when both you and Stephen have seemed to be able to work out a lot of other problems between the two of you in the past, is perplexing to me. Yes, he was wrong for the things he did to you, but you need to take responsibility for your actions as well as your partners actions since they are a reflection of you. You allowed Narz to make things worse. How can you let a man say that he doesn’t want anything to do with Wyatt because he is a “spawn” of Stephen’s? Especially knowing how Stephen felt about family values. You told Stephen over and over again that “We can work through anything,” and then, to get with Narz. Here is a little karma for ya…you are not the only one he has been intimate with since you started this with him. Ya, Stephen committed the ultimate horrific, unexplainable, unimaginable act that any human, much less parent could do when he took Wyatt’s life, and then his own; when what he should have done, was taken Narz put one round between his legs, and the other between his eyes, so that he would be in as much pain as Stephen surely had to have been in with all your antagonistic ways through all the pictures, texts, and phone calls. How can Narz call himself a man to sit there and come between a loving couple with children who were trying to work things out? Things got WAY out of hand real fast, and yes, I know you didn’t believe that Stephen would actually kill Wyatt, maybe himself, but never in your wildest nightmares did you ever see the outcome of this? Because if you did believe that he would kill Wyatt, undoubtedly, you would have FLED the area to save your son no matter what the courts orders were, because a parents number one priority is to protect their child at any and all costs. The most they would have given you would have been 30 days in jail for contempt of court. So when you see this, remember the last time you looked into Wyatt’s eyes and Stephens eyes, what was going through YOUR head? Was it, I will see my son in a day or two, or was it, “finally, these burdens will be gone..?” The only one that really knows is you and God, and you will have to answer to God in the end. No matter how much your smile and batting of your eyes have gotten you out of most of all your other problems, or got you things you wanted, it will not fool the Lord. He is the final Judge, not the one in the Courtroom, but the one that gave you Wyatt and Koda. I really feel sorry for Koda because I know how much he loved his baby brother, even before he was born. He would talk to your stomach and tell him how much he loved him. So now, you tell us…Is there any amount of money that can heal or replace baby Wyatt, or do you just need another man to do that for you? You will live with the nightmares that will never end because you know, if you did not want Wyatt gone, you would have kept him as far away from Stephen as possible, no way in hell would you have let him go with Stephen. Yes, the justice system should have listened to you, and granted a protective order, and only allowed Stephen supervised visits. But YOU failed Wyatt too. Have fun waking up nightly in cold sweats because you ALL pulled the trigger, not JUST Stephen, but Narz, yourself, and the Judge. You all should be charged with First Degree Aggravated murder and conspiracy to commit the murders of Stephen and Wyatt Garcia. You know as well as anyone who knew Stephen well, that he had weapons and if you remember correctly, you were the one that wanted the last two. How the law reads, is that: a person that is knowingly and/or willingly allowing a felonious act to occur is considered an accomplish and conspirator in the act which has been committed. As Stephen is now deceased, you should be charged and convicted of the homicides of both Stephen and Wyatt Garcia. The judge can only go by what he has seen based on previous court documents, and statements that you have made. I have a question for you, back on the topic of what you SHOULD have done to protect your son….Why were you not prepared for court with evidence so important that you supposedly were scared for both your life and the life of your son. I am speaking specifically about the texts supposedly sent to you by Stephen saying OUTRIGHT that he was IN FACT going to harm himself and Wyatt which you could have easily sent to your phone from his the nights that you were there with him. You may have your 100 protesters, and so many other people fooled, but what they don’t know, is how good of a manipulator you really are. Anyone that is trained or knows anything about body language psychology, can see right through you. Your posture, your eye movements, body movements, the tone of your voice, right down to the way you breathe all show that you have no heart and if you went to a psychiatrist, most likely, you would be diagnosed with a sociopathic disorder. Most people with a conscience find it very difficult to even imagine what it would be like to be without one. Combine this with a sociopath’s efforts to blend in, and the result is that most sociopaths go undetected. Because they go undetected, they wreak havoc on their family, on people they work with, and on anyone who tries to be their friend. A sociopath deceives, takes what he (or she) wants, and hurts people without any remorse. Sociopaths don’t feel guilty. They don’t feel sorry for what they’ve done. They go through life taking what they want and giving nothing back. They manipulate and deceive and convincingly lie without the slightest second thought. They leave a path of confusion and upset in their wake…Which is EXACTLY what you have done. I am sorry Katie, that you are not capable of feeling the pain and agony that the rest of us that cared are feeling, and for those who don’t even know them are feeling. By the way, the cremation only cost you a few hundred dollars, so where is the rest of the money that you have profited off the sympathy of others, which is also A CRIME. Can you tell us that Katie??? All the times I have seen you out partying, and having a good time it saddens me. How can you go on living the way you are as if nothing ever happened??? Maybe you should have got that abortion you wanted. At least Stephen would still be here with us.
