Wednesday, March 2, 2016: This has been a rough couple days Sam. I can’t even write this without getting emotional about it. Nobody wanted this to happen. I know where Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) will go when she is brought it Tijuana. La Mesa Prison. It’s the same prison she sent me to for no reason after she had me ambushed by members of the Tijuana Police Department. It’s a horrible place. Nobody is taking this lightly. We tried for 7 ½ years to reason with her. At the end of the day, she did this to herself. I can only hope this serves as a wake up call for her and she starts to do the right things for herself, for you and for us as parents. If you asked me 11 ½ years ago when I first met Adriana if things would spiral out of control like this, I would have told you that you were crazy. If you asked Adriana that same question, she would tell you she wanted to have 3 more babies with me. So I doubt this was part of her plan either.

But I digress…

The police knew a lot about Adriana, her family, Danny Howitt (AKA Daniel Duncan Howitt, Elizabeth Farquhar Duncan, Kenneth Duncan) and his family, and Isaias Palomeque (AKA Isaias Uzziel Palomeque, Isaias Palomeque Vergara, Project Manager at DJO Global) too. They did their homework. They knew about all 4 ambushes. They knew Adriana had me thrown into prison in 2010 for no reason. They knew the events that led up to that day when she was driving like a crazy person and crashing into 2 vehicles. They knew about the DIF psychologist diagnosing Adriana with Paranoid Personality Disorder and her hostile & violent tendencies. They knew all this without me even having to say anything. Like I said they did their homework on everyone involved with this from day 1 because they had to know who they were dealing with. Police work is tough and most times thankless. They will tell you the most dangerous situations they run into on the job is not drugs and gangs, because they know the elements. It’s domestic situations like this where 1 or 2 people have shown they are willing to do whatever it takes to get away with crimes and when confronted. Emotions are so high and out of control it often leads to people getting hurt or killed. This was a tense situation because of how predictably unpredictable Adriana is. And the police knew that when we met them. Their goal was to accomplish the arrest without any threat to you, to us, to them or to the public. Mission accomplished. And my hats off to the police for that.

When Adriana came out of the house, several police officers approached her as she got to her truck. They asked her if she was “Adriana Coronel Tenorio“. When she said “yes”, the police told her they were there to execute an arrest warrant from Tijuana for your abduction. Adriana’s immediate response was to run. Because of course it was. As she tried to make a run for it she threw a punch at one of the female police officers in the process. The punch missed. The police instantly grabbed her, handcuffed her and put her in an unmarked police car.

It goes without saying that Maria Guadalupe Tenorio Toledano (AKA Lupita Tenorio, Marsha Tenorio) is a horrible human being and a bigger coward than we thought. She was standing on the front porch of the house when the police arrested Adriana. Did she run to Adriana’s defense? Did she confront the police to see what was going on? No! She ran inside and slammed the door shut. Never saying a word to anyone. Who does that if you are not guilty of a crime? The police made mention of that later when we met up with them before their flight back to Tijuana. They told us that Maria Guadalupe had the look on her face that she was worried she was going to be arrested next and went into the house to hide. That prophecy will be fulfilled soon enough. Just not today.

The police called Adriana “cold-blooded” about the whole situation after they actually had her in handcuffs. She did not say much. She showed no emotion. She was not in shock. She was not crying. She did not ask any questions. Nothing. That will change when she gets to Tijuana I am sure. After she was processed, the police asked Adriana if she wanted to make a phone call to anyone because by law she gets one phone call. Does she call any family? Her sister? Her husband? No. She called the criminal attorney in Tijuana who she consulted before abducting you again in 2014. The same attorney whose office was 2 doors down from Lourdes. The same attorney we talked to when you disappeared again. The same attorney who explicitly told Adriana that if she ran, she was going to jail to which her response was “I will take my chances”.

We saw how that turned out for Adriana this morning Sam.

Before we left, I literally got sick to my stomach over this whole thing. Tossing my cookies, so-to-speak, on the side of the side of the road where we witnessed all this go down. After a couple minutes, we followed the police caravan to the Irapuato jail. We were told Irapuato police would need about an hour to process Adriana before handing her over to the officers from Tijuana. Javier, Juan Pablo and Sonia were on it so we left to for the Irapuato civil court to talk to the judge about what happens with you now that Adriana has been arrested. We needed to see you to make sure you were OK.

The judge was cool and understood that this was an emergency. As we were waiting for her to finish up a hearing, the pictures and video of Adriana arrest started to come in. These were the people that were right there. They were hard to watch Sam. I got emotional every time I saw them. Then a picture came in of your aunt Mara Coronel (AKA Mara Mireles Coronel, Mariana Coronel, Mariana Mireles Coronel). I am not sure what she is up to these days, but all indications are her marriage to Omar Mireles Martinez is on the rocks because she had to take a bus to the jail to investigate what was going on with Adriana. You read that right, she had to take a bus to the jail to find out what was going on with Adriana. Maria Guadalupe is such a coward and so afraid she was going to be arrested herself, she sent Mara there to do her dirty work. Maria Guadalupe doesn’t work Sam, Mara does. So in doing this Mara probably had to take the rest of the day off from work to do this while Maria Guadalupe kept looking out for herself like she always does. Judging by where Mara lives, she needs every peso she can make to support herself and the three kids. Not spend it on bus fare to see why Adriana is in jail. Everyone knows exactly why she is in jail. Not our problem. Just an interesting observation.

At 9:30 we got word that Adriana was fully processed and is officially in the hands of the Tijuana Police Department. Soon enough she will be on an airplane back to Tijuana. The process has started. And really Sam, that is all we asked for. Adriana will get her day in court to explain all of this. Finally. Then again, this assumes Adriana doesn’t go on the run if she gets bail.
