Once again, you have to read between the lines with the mainstream media. Father...and his "girlfriend." NOT the mother. If this is the mother, I believe they would have said so, and they didn't. In fact there is ZERO mention of the mother, who has been erased from the story entirely. So it certainly appears dad PAS ISRAEL PRIMERA is custodial. Of course, why and how this abusive "alleged" killer dad had custody--and who gave it to him--is passed over in complete silence.
As we have pointed out before, abusive/neglectful, crazy, drug-addicted and/or alcoholic mothers are typically custodial by default because they get pregnant, give birth, and nobody objects or interferes with the custodial arrangement. This is especially true when the mothers are not married or in a stable relationship.
Custodial dads gain custody because Mom is dead, "disappeared," or somebody in authority granted them custody. So when we have a killer dad, we should ALWAYS be asking how this child ended up in this home. It is never just an accident of nature.
