Remembering Sylvia

Reporter Amanda Baumfeld, who has been covering the Christmas Eve Massacre since day one caught up with Sylvia Pardo’s best frend, a Pomona woman who shared her memories Monday. Here’s the top of the story:


COVINA – Roxanne Jauregui talked to her best friend Sylvia Pardo nearly every day for the last 30 years.

Monday she remained unable to cope with the fact that Sylvia is gone. So, Jauregui continues to leave messages on a cell phone owned by Sylvia trying to hold onto their daily routine.

“I continue to talk to her as if she was still here,” Jauregui, of Pomona, said. “We would talk almost everyday after work; she would tell me her private issues…I know her inside and out. I still believe that she is going to call me.”

    I do not now or ever condone the shooting of an 8-year old child for any reason. However, after making that clear, I will say this:

    Before you go judging people you know nothing about, why don’t you ask yourself THESE questions:

    What kind of monster marries for money because she can only make $31,000 a year as a secretary and can’t support her 3 kids without finding a cash cow?

    What kind of monster leaves the man she pledged to be with until death did she part because “He didn’t want to share his paychecks with her”?

    What kind of monster demands $3166 a month in “spousal support” from the husband she abandoned, who now has no job and cannot even afford to support himself, even though she was fully capable of working and had a job herself?

    What kind of greedy monster chooses to spend the money she stole from the husband she abandoned on “a new 2009 luxury car, several days of gambling in Las Vegas, out dining at finer restaurants, a trip to Primm Casino-Resort, purchased golf school lessons, a recent vacation to Magic Mountain Amusement Park and visited massage parlors”, all the while leaving him with nothing but crushing debt and a broken heart?

    What kind of monster abandons a man, takes him for everything he is worth and then turns his own MOTHER against him?

    What kind of monster tries to get a court to award her child support from the destitute man she abandoned for kids who were NOT his and were NOT adopted by him??

    What kind of monster “Christmas shopped and toasted to her new life” to celebrate her raping of the man she married and the final divorce settlement that awarded her $10,000 cash and even the man’s DOG while leaving him with nothing and no one?

    Sylvia Pardo is dead because she was heartless and GREEDY. Plain and simple. SHE was the sociopath. She was the one who was cold and calculated and played with a man’s heart for profit. It seems as though she chose the wrong man this time (he was not the first, either).

    The biggest tragedy in this entire case is that the Divorce lawyer that helped her do it not only survived, but is now taking up collections for a “fund for the family” and will, as a result, yield even MORE profit from an already hellish situation (there is no question such a man will be keeping most of this “fund” for himself). The second biggest is that he didn’t leave Sylvia Pardo alive after he did all this so she could see what it was like to lose your entire family and feel pain herself for once instead celebrating the pain she caused others. Then she could have rolled around in all her money and asked herself if it was really worth it.

    This man wasn’t mentally ill and he wasn’t a sociopath. The evil and greed of Divorce pushed him over the edge and he snapped. If you want to put the blame on someone for this, blame the lawyers who engineered a contentious divorce and then profited from it happening, blame the judges who failed to see through this woman’s scam, and blame a court system that makes it SO easy to not only get a divorce for no reason whenever you feel like it, but to take your spouse to the cleaners when you decide you have used them up for all they are worth.

    Most of all, blame the soulless human garbage named Sylvia Pardo, whose greed and viciousness caused pain for her entire family. Maybe if her parents had raised her not to whore herself out and to learn to stand on her own two feet and EARN her money instead, they would still be alive today. Maybe if her family hadn’t taught her that money was the most important thing in life and instead that loyalty and keeping your promise and loving the person you pledged yourself to was valuable, they would still be here too. But this woman’s greed cost them all, and they all share in the responsibility for what happened.
