According to Barreda he killed his family because they insulted him with verbal and physical attacks at all times. They called him names such as "Conchita" (in English pussy) and referred to him as a useless, unemployed, perverted and mentally challenged being.
November 15, 1992, Barreda was having a nice day, until he became mad for the unpleasant treatment his wife gave him that particular day, so he took his beloved shotgun a 16,5 gauge, double barrel, Vda. e Hijos Victor Sarrasqueta shotgun(who was given to him as a gift by his mother in law) and killed his family. First he shot his wife down with a blast to her chest very at short distance in the kitchen, then Cecilia (his oldest daughter) who was standing near his mother was murdered. After doing so and as he was reloding his gun, Adriana came running down the stairs shouting, she didn't reach the lowest step as she was killed with a blast to the head before. According to him he saved the best for the last, he went and shot Elena Arreche with a double blast to the back and then another double blast to the head. After killingthem all, pillagingand rapingtheir dead bodies, Barreda collected all empty shells, trashed his house (with the pourpouse of faking a robbery); drove his Ford Falconto a park and throwed the shotgun and the used shells there. At around 5:30 pm he went to a motelwith his long time girlfriend (both of them had an extramarital affair) Hilda Bono.
