The body of a woman whose boyfriend allegedly killed their two children was found by police on Saturday.


Shazer Fernando Limas, 31, was arrested early Friday following a car chase that shut down Interstate 5 in Los Angeles.


He is suspected of killing his girlfriend, Arlet Hernandez Contreras, 31, and the couple's two young boys.

Evidence in his apartment indicated that the victims were killed about three weeks ago and the bodies were dumped elsewhere.

Detectives located Contreras' body late on Friday when they contacted the Los Angeles Coroner's office to see if the facility had any unidentified female bodies.

Theymlearned that county workers found one that appeared to have stab wounds on April 25 in La Puente, police Sgt. Dan Adams said.

The couple's four-month-old and two-year-old sons remain missing, Adams said.

Fernando Limas came to police's attention after he moved out of the apartment he shared with Contreras and someone sent to clean the carpets found them covered in blood.

Fernando Limas was spotted in the Costa Mesa area late Thursday afternoon.


When police tried to stop him, he fled on what became a freeway chase that ended near the U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint near San Onofre.

A spike strip was used to flatten the tires on his Nissan 350Z.

Adams said evidence from the apartment indicated the victims were killed after an altercation.

Investigators searched surrounding counties and used cadaver-sniffing dogs to search the nearby Brea dump in case the bodies were placed in a trash container at the apartment complex.

However, they didn't find any bodies.

ORANGE, Calif. -- A search of a Southern California landfill has
turned up no sign of a toddler boy and his baby brother believed killed
by their father at their Orange County apartment.

Orange police Sgt. Dan Adams says investigators and two
cadaver-sniffing dogs completed a search of the Brea landfill on Tuesday
but turned up nothing.

He says it's not clear where or when a search for the children will resume.

Adams says police believe the children were killed along with their
31-year-old mother by their father, Shazer Fernando Limas last month.

Limas was arrested last week following a police chase and charged
Monday with three counts of murder. He's being held without bail.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

The blood-stained carpet was the first clue Arlet Contreras and her
two young sons had not just abandoned their apartment in a gated Orange County complex.

Police began looking for them and Contreras' boyfriend, Shazer
Fernando Limas, after a cleaning crew discovered the old stains on the
walls and under the carpet they were pulling up.

When an observant officer spotted Limas in a parking lot in a nearby
city, however, the 31-year-old fled, leading police on a high-speed
chase that ended with his arrest on three counts of murder.

Prosecutors now believe that Limas, who works for a commercial cleaning supply
company, stabbed his girlfriend and their 3-month-old and 1-year-old
sons, on April 14 – nearly three weeks before police responded to the bloody apartment.

Investigators subsequently found Contreras' body in a Los Angeles
County morgue where it had been lying unidentified for 10 days. The
children have still not been found but are also believed dead, and
authorities searched a nearby landfill Tuesday using a bulldozer and cadaver-sniffing dogs.

No one filed a missing report on Contreras or her children and there
was no sign of trouble before the cleaning crew called police, he said.

"This is like something you'd see on TV, you know, and then you add
in a car chase," said police Sgt. Dan Adams. "We were actively looking
for all four of them because when our officers were at the apartment, it
was evident that something had happened there and something was wrong.
We definitely wanted to check on the welfare of all four of them, but
when he led us on a high-speed chase, it raised our suspicion level very much."

Limas made a brief court appearance Monday in Santa Ana. His public
defender asked that the arraignment be postponed to provide more time to
review evidence in the case. The arraignment was continued until May
23. Limas remained in custody without bail.

On Monday, prosecutors laid out a timeline for the killings but acknowledged they have more questions than answers.

Authorities believe Limas stabbed his family to death April 14, in
part because he reported to Long Beach Memorial Hospital the following
day for surgery for a cut on his hand, Senior Deputy District Attorney Scott Simmons said.

Also, Contreras' body was found with stab wounds under a tarp in a
gutter in La Puente, a city more than 20 miles north of the couple's apartment, according to police.


Ten days after Limas killed the three, prosecutors said, he purchased
a tarp at a Home Depot and dumped Contreras' body the next day.

More than a week later, on May 3, the cleaning crew called police to
report the bloody carpet and within a day, Limas was under arrest and
police had found Contreras' body.

"There's a lot of things that we're still working on. I don't know
what he was doing specifically between the date of the murder and the
date of the body dump. I don't know where he stored the body. I believe
it was at the apartment somewhere," Simmons said after the court hearing.

Limas was recently ordered by an Orange County Superior Court judge
to pay $284 a month in child support to Contreras starting April 1, and
that could be a possible motive, Simmons said.

Limas has been cooperative and has talked to investigators but has
not provided the location of the children's bodies, he said. Authorities
would not say whether he had confessed.

"We're just doing due diligence and doing everything we can to locate
these two children," Simmons said. "But I'm confident in the case even
if we don't find the children."

Limas has no known criminal history but has a handful of cases in family and civil court, according to court records.

In 2007 court filing, one of Limas' ex-wives said that he grabbed and
wrestled her to the door and pointed an air gun at her and pulled the
trigger. The gun was empty but the attack aggravated the woman's back
injury, according to the request for a temporary restraining order filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

A judge issued the woman a one-year protective restraining order
requiring Limas to stay at least 100 yards away and not call her, records show.

She and Limas filed for divorce days later.

Limas also was ordered to pay $302 a month to support a daughter from another relationship, according to court files.

June 5th 2012

SANTA ANA – The arraignment Tuesday of a man accused of fatally
stabbing his girlfriend and killing their two young sons was continued to June 26.

Shazer Fernando Limas, 31, is charged in the April 14 slaying of
Arlet Hernandez Contreras, also 31, whose body was found under a tarp in
a gutter in Los Angeles County. Authorities' search for the bodies of
the couple's children, Fernando, 1, and Emanuel, 3 months, has thus far
been unsuccessful.





Shazer Fernando Limas.
Limas faces three felony counts of special circumstances murder with
sentencing enhancements for the multiple murders and the personal use of
a deadly weapon. The special circumstances in the case make the
defendant eligible for the death penalty.

Prosecutors say the killings occurred on the same day at an Orange apartment in the 3000 block of West Chapman Avenue.

Prosecutors contend Limas stabbed Contreras and their two sons at
their apartment. They base that, in part, on a hospital visit by Limas
the next day to have surgery on a cut on his hand.

Limas disposed of Contreras' body on April 25, according to the
Orange County District Attorney's Office. Workers in La Puente found her
body with multiple stab wounds later that day in the gutter,
prosecutors said.

The defendant was arrested May 3 near the San Clemente Border Patrol checkpoint after he led police on a high-speed chase.

Limas is being held without bail in Orange County jail.

Dad of missing boys pleads not guilty to killing family

SANTA ANA – A man accused of fatally stabbing his girlfriend and killing their two young sons pleaded not guilty at his continued arraignment on Tuesday.

Shazer Fernando Limas, 32, is charged in the April 14 slaying of Arlet Hernandez Contreras, 31, whose body was found under a tarp in a gutter in Los Angeles County. Authorities have searched for, but not found, the couple's children, Fernando, 1, and Emanuel, 3 months.

Limas faces three felony counts of special circumstances murder with sentencing enhancements of multiple murders and the personal use of a deadly weapon. The special circumstances in the case mean the defendant could receive the death penalty if convicted.

The investigation began after a manager at the Orange apartment complex reported blood in the vacant apartment where Limas had lived with his girlfriend of three years and their two sons, police said. Limas moved out of the unit in the 3000 block of West Chapman Avenue on April 28, and a cleaning crew discovered blood on the floor, beneath the carpet and on the walls.

Prosecutors say that Limas stabbed Contreras and their two sons at the apartment. They base that, in part, on a hospital visit by Limas the next day to have surgery on a cut on his hand.

The Orange County District Attorney's Office said that Limas disposed of Contreras' body on April 25. Workers in La Puente found her body, which had multiple stab wounds, later that day in the gutter, prosecutors said.

Limas was arrested May 3 near the San Clemente Border Patrol checkpoint after he led police on a high-speed chase, police said.

Limas is being held without bail in Orange County jail. A pre-trial hearing has been set for Oct. 15.

EMMANUEL AND FERNANDO LIMAS – CASE RESTRICTED

Emmanuel and Fernando Limas’ case has been restricted and since removed from the NCMEC Database.  Thank you to all of those who followed their case.

**** What a restricted case means. ****

A restricted case can mean any one of several things.  It can mean the children have been recovered, or the case has been solved, however it is not press ready at the time.  Classifying it as restricted gives the authorities and professionals time to evaluate the children, without any influence, to determine exactly how they were living and their current needs – do they need any medical treatment, counseling, drug rehab, etc. Also, during the evaluation time the professionals and authorities should be able to determine if any additional charges should be filed against the abductor(s) or anyone else.  A final determination of custody will be made (vast majority enforces orders made after the abduction), and the children will then be returned to their rightful home.  A restricted case can also mean that the case is being updated.  When this is the case, a new poster will be issued for the children and the case will be reclassified.  This generally happens within a day or two.  LTWH’s policy is to wait 7 days before reclassifying a case, therefore we avoid changing the status of a case if an update is all that is happening.  Lastly, a restricted case may mean that the publicity of the case has been ceased.  When this happens, the public is given very little information.

**** Please note that when a case is classified as restricted, we move the case to our recovered archives.****
