HE HAS NO CRIMINAL HISTORY, BUT TONIGHT A POST FALLS
MAN IS IN JAIL - CHARGED WITH KILLING HIS WIFE AND
HER FIVE YEAR OLD DAUGHTER.
INVESTIGATORS SAY 24 YEAR OLD ANGEL MORALES LARRANAGA.
CONFESSED TO A FRIEND TO STRANGLING THE TWO VICTIMS
INSIDE THEIR APARTMENT.
LATE THIS AFTERNOON, WE LEARNED THE NAMES OF THE VICTIMS.
FACUNDA VELENZUELA LEON AND FIVE YEAR OLD DAYANNA
KXLY4'S CAITI CURREY IS WORKING FOR YOU TONIGHT,
SHE JOINS US LIVE FROM POST FALLS, WHERE MANY IN THE
APARTMENT COMPLEX ARE STILL IN SHOCK,
NADINE THE VICTIMS.
A WOMAN AND HER FIVER YEAR OLD DAUGHTER.
WERE LIVING WITH MORALES LARRANAGA AND TWO OTHER CHILDREN
AT THE TIME OF THE MURDER.
THE BALCONY WHERE THE FAMILY LIVED SITS JUST OVER
AND WHERE THE POLICE PRESENCE HAS QUIETED.
NEIGHBORS ARE STILL HAUNTED BY WHAT HAPPENED.
MEGAN, NEIGHBOR :19
I saw the caution tape across their door and I immediately
knew who he was talking about.
RESIDENTS OF THE TULLAMORE APARTMENT COMPLEX IN POST
FALLS ARE IN SHOCK AS THE REALITY OF THEIR NEIGHBOR
AND HER FIVE YEAR OLD DAUGHTER BEING STRANGLED SETS
It's the saddest thing I could ever imagine.
I mean I can't believe this would happen anywhere
much less the same building I live in.
MEGAN DOESN'T WANT TO BE IDENTIFIED ON CAMERA.
SHE SAYS HER NEIGHBORS WERE QUIET.
BUT VERY FRIENDLY.
The woman looked like such a nice lady, and he seemed
like a very nice man to be perfectly honest.
EVEN MORE UNBEARABLE.
MEGAN HAS A DAUGHTER OF HER OWN.
AROUND THE SAME AGE AS THE LITTLE GIRL WHO WAS MURDERED
The little girl that I met there, was a sweetheart.
If their door would be open the little girl would
run to the door and say hi to my daughter.
POLICE ARE STILL SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS AS TO WHY 24
YEAR OLD ANGEL MORALES LARRANAGA WOULD COMMIT SUCH
CPT PAT KNIGHT, POST FALLS PD
We have our work cut out for us.
What led up to it? Who are we dealing with?
PROSECUTORS SAY MORALES LARRANAGA HAS NO CRIMINAL
NEIGHBORS SAY THEY NEVER NOTICED ANYTHING THAT WOULD
BE CAUSE FOR CONCERN.
My home feels different than it did before.
It's not a safety thing just a heaviness that something
that terrible could happen.
THE MAIN THING MEGAN IS TAKING AWAY FROM ALL OF THIS....
Hold your kids tighter.
Hold onto your children and love them and protect
them as much as you can.
THOUGH MORALES HAS NO PREVIOUS RECORD HE IS BEING
HELD ON A TWO-MILLION DOLLAR BOND BECAUSE OF THE SEVERITY
OF THE CRIME.
