What Happened to Stephanie Croteau’s Mother & Daughter?
The Hampden District Attorney’s Office said that on August 14, Victor Nieves broke into the home of Stephanie’s mother and opened fire. At the scene of the accident, he killed Croteau’s mother, Kim Fairbanks and the family dog.
Then he went to a bedroom and shot Fairbanks’ granddaughters, who were 12 and 10 years old. Her grandson, who is 5 years old, was not hurt. The 34-year-old Nieves was found dead in that room having killed himself with a gun.
Autism Lynn, a 10-year-old girl was flown to a hospital but died there on August 17. The 12-year-old girl lived through her injuries. Croteau was at work when the incident happened. She wrote in a Facebook post that day:
“At 12:56pm, my princess Aubrianna Lynn’s heart stopped beating, It was peaceful, she was not in any pain. She was surrounded by her family.”
You can read her statement in a post provided below:
Sanchez, Nieves’ lover said that he was high on cocaine and over-the-counter drugs when he started acting strangely. He told Sanchez that someone was waiting outside to kill him before he ran downstairs and started shooting. Someone fired a gun and Sanchez ran outside and yelled for help. Sanchez told:
“The oldest girl, when she came out with blood all over her, she said: ‘Victor shot us, and he shot himself.’ So I ran back inside and saw him on the floor, and I just fell down.”
Sanchez said Nieves loved the kids he killed and would not have hurt them if he were in his right mind.
