LIVINGSTON, Ohio — It was a sunny, early morning in May in 2017.
A friend and I were eating breakfast at our local pizzeria when our phone rang.
It was the police.
The woman on the other end said she had just been robbed and that she and her boyfriend had just taken a delivery of the pizzeria’s famous Italian pizza.
We agreed to meet her for a ride home, and we drove the rest of the way to the restaurant.
We arrived in the parking lot, where a woman in a black tank top, a blue sweatshirt and a pair of black shorts was standing at the window with her arms crossed, eyes wide and a blank expression on her face.
A woman in an equally hooded sweatshirt approached us.
She was wearing a black ski mask and was looking around with a suspicious look on her eyes.
“Oh, my gosh, are you guys coming here?” she asked, her voice shaking with fear.
“We have been robbed!” the woman said, shaking her head.
“No, no, no.
I’m sorry, we’re not coming to your house.”
She said she’d been in the delivery business for a few years and wanted to give us a call to report what had happened.
We asked her to take a look around, but she was already gone.
We got out of the car and walked back to the house.
Inside, we found a woman who had been shot in the chest.
She had been stabbed in the neck, chest and arm.
Her boyfriend was bleeding from the chest, as was her husband, who was also stabbed in his torso.
A passerby told police she had heard gunshots and saw her boyfriend being shot.
The couple were taken to a nearby hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
Three weeks later, the two men had been identified as Roberto and Antonio, two brothers who had lived together for decades.
The police, who initially said they believed they were the victims, now say that’s just speculation, but it’s consistent with the description given by witnesses.
The case has been called a hate crime.
Roberto was the nephew of Antonio, who had moved from Argentina to Ohio.
They had been in a long-term relationship and had had three children together.
When Roberto died, Antonio died suddenly in his sleep.
He had been the oldest, the only brother, and the only one to have children with his wife.
Roberto’s mother, Teresa, was in the hospital with a heart condition.
Teresa had been on the verge of losing her mind.
When she heard the news, Teresa went into a deep depression and became obsessed with the news.
She wrote letters to the newspapers.
She started a Facebook page.
She went to the local police station and talked to people, calling police, asking if they could help her.
Police told her there was no way to contact them, but that she should try to call the police herself.
“If they didn’t come, then she wouldn’t be able to reach them, she would just be a dead person,” Teresa said.
“But they came and they helped me.”
On May 6, 2018, the day after the murder, Teresa returned to her family home in the Columbus suburb of Columbus, and told them what had just happened.
“It was like a slap in the face,” she said.
It’s hard to know exactly how much the police know about the case, but the FBI and local authorities said they have been told by investigators that the brothers are suspected of shooting Roberto because he was Hispanic and their brother was not.
Teresa told investigators that she was “stunned” when she found out she was pregnant with Antonio’s child.
“I felt so helpless,” she told police.
“When my baby was born, I was so happy.
I wanted to be a mom and make him proud of me.
But I felt like I was living in a dream.”
Antonio’s parents, who live in Argentina, did not respond to a request for comment.
The three were never arrested, and Teresa and Antonio’s mother did not face any charges.
They lived in an apartment complex in the northern suburbs of Columbus.
“This case is very important because it has to do with how police handle crimes involving people who are perceived as marginalized,” said Andrea Soto, a criminal justice professor at the University of Dayton.
“In my view, it is extremely important that the community and the police and the prosecutors work together to identify and address this kind of crime and violence.”
After the murder of the Italian family, police made two separate calls to the family in Argentina to report that their nephew was missing.
Teresa and her sister said they were told to go home and wait for police to come.
They were told they could meet them at the apartment complex.
But the officers never showed up.
By the time Teresa and the family got to the apartment, the police were
