Jing Tesoriero recounts Lone Tree Colorado murder suicide scene, custody battle ended with her son Ty Tesoriero dead

The back drop of a horrible murder suicide came to light as Jing Tesoriero detailed the full backstory of the Lone Tree tragedy in Colorado Saturday morning.

“There were so many agencies that were involved, so many. I begged, talked to, tried to convince everybody to do something,” said mother Jing Tesoriero in an emotional testimony of finding her son Ty dead, killed by her ex-husband, Anthony Tesoriero, who then turned the gun on himself.

Tesoriero said she woke up to a shocking email from her ex-husband during the night, quoting the note: “By the time you finish reading this, Ty will be moments away from joining me in the afterlife.”

“It’s pretty much like a suicide note, and he said he was going to take my son with him, and I called 911,” Jing said, explaining how she then drove to Anthony’s Lone Tree apartment.

“I kept waiting for the ambulance, and I was hoping that there was going to be an ambulance,” she said. “He said they both were dead in the apartment,” said Tesoriero. “Heartbroken, I don’t even know the words. I’m feeling angry, upset, regrets.”

Lone Tree police responded, and provided a media statement more than 48 hours after it happened and only after Denver7 inquired: “On Saturday, Sept. 21 at approximately 2:30 a.m. , Lone Tree Police Department (LTPD) responded to a welfare check at the Contour 39 Apartments, located at 9045 Yosemite St. , where they found an adult male and a juvenile male deceased inside the apartment. The Douglas County Coroner’s Office identified the adult male as 48-year-old Anthony Tesoriero. Autopsies have been completed on both individuals, but no further information will be released as to the cause and manner of death until the investigation is complete and the final autopsy reports are made available. LTPD, however, is currently investigating this as a murder suicide and does not believe there is any threat to the public.”

10-year-old Ty was caught in the middle of his parent’s custody battle, where a judge appeared set to give Tesoriero full custody of her son.

Tesoriero asked that her son not be with his dad the night after the hearing, expressing her concerns about Anthony’s mental state.

“We even told the judge more than once that we were worried, we were concerned for Ty’s safety,” she said.

“The judge had communicated that she did want to take the matter under advisement,” said Tesoriero’s attorney Caroline Cooley. “She did anticipate an order being issued over the weekend for Ty to be removed, but within eight hours Ty was murdered.”

“In twenty years, I have never had a case where a child has been so systematically, methodically, consistently alienated, and no change is occurring, and no system is responding to it,” said Cooley.

Tesoriero’s ex, Anthony, also had a mandatory protection order to stay away from her and not harass her. An order Tesoriero said he violated repeatedly.

“I can’t count, there was so many,” said Tesoriero.

“And what did police, what did the court system, what did DHS do?” asked Denver7 reporter Jennifer Kovaleski.

“Nothing. Nobody did anything,” responded Tesoriero.

The order also should have kept Anthony from having a gun.

Anthony took his threats online where he used open sites like Cheaterreport.com to destroy Tesoriero and her new husband’s reputation.

“The online posts never stopped, never stopped. It was ongoing till last weekend,” she said.

Anthony would post his suicide note on the same website early Saturday morning. His final message of control. A message Tesoriero said he should never have been able to write.

“He lost, and he had to take Ty with him because that’s the only thing he could control that night was Ty,” she said.

“I want there to be a formal investigation. I would like the governor to get involved,” said Cooley.
