Florida man, Pedro Maldonado, murders wife and son with a crossbow

A Florida man murdered his wife and son with a crossbow and then drove nearly 500 miles to kill his other son before killing himself, police report.

Pedro Maldonado killed family with crossbowPedro Maldonado Sr shot and killed his wife, Monica Narvaez-Maldonado, and their 17-year-old son, Pedro Maldonado Jr., with a crossbow in their Weston home, Broward County Sheriff’s Office says.

Pedro then drove to Tallahassee to kill Jose Maldonado who is a student at Florida State University.

“His dad did try to shoot him with the same handheld crossbow and the arrow hit Jose’s ear,” Dani Moschella, a spokeswoman for the sheriff’s department, told CNN affiliate WSVN. “Then his father tried to choke him, and José luckily was able to get away.”

José Maldonado never reported the attack to police, but it was his father’s confession to a friend that alerted authorities to his crimes.

The Broward Sheriff’s report says Pedro Maldonado called a friend in Miami and admitted to killing his wife and son. Authorities discovered their bodies in the South Florida townhouse shortly thereafter and began searching for Pedro.

He was found at a hotel in the Lake City area, dead after slitting his own throat.
