    Llaneth Chavez (31) & her daughter Malaya (4) drowned in a pool the first time they went to visit Malaya's father at his home

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world...id=mailsignout

    On Feb. 12, a 31-year-old Hollister woman named Llaneth Chavez strapped her 4-year-old daughter, Malaya, into her car seat and began the two-hour drive north to the gated community of Blackhawk, for what was to be a monumental day.

    Malaya?s mother and father met when Chavez started working at a gas station chain owned by his family. For the past four years, he?d financially supported Malaya but kept the girl a secret, out of fear of what would happen if his parents found out. But that day, he?d finally agreed to meet her for the first time, and go out for ice cream cones.

    Instead, about an hour after arriving at the home on East Ridge Court, Chavez and Malaya would wind up dead in the backyard swimming pool, an incident with no known witnesses that still remains shrouded in mystery.

    Pool drownings are one of the most common causes of accidental deaths in the United States. But nearly four months after Chavez and Malaya?s death, police say the coroner has yet to rule whether their deaths were accidents, homicides, or had a cause impossible to determine.

    When police arrived to the 7,000 square-foot home that day, they encountered a story that raised their suspicions and led to the investigation, which has been open ever since. Details of the deaths were publicly revealed in recent court records police filed. Investigators hope that using a subpoena to gain access to electronic records will provide clarity as to how Chavez and Malaya ended up dead in the pool.

    The Bay Area News Group is not naming the East Ridge Court resident, Malaya?s father, who told investigators he was inside the home when the pair drowned and didn?t witness anything. He has not been arrested or charged in the incident.

    It was Malaya?s father who called 911 to report the drownings a little before 3 p.m. that day. He later told investigators it took him about five attempts to reach a dispatcher because the lines were busy. When authorities arrived, he appeared to be performing CPR on the young girl. The girl and her mother were rushed to a hospital and pronounced dead after their arrival.

    Malaya?s father then told police he met and dated Chavez four years earlier, when he was a manager at the gas station where she worked. He said he feared to reveal the relationship or his secret daughter to his own family, out of fear they wouldn?t approve due to ?cultural differences,? according to police. But in 2021, his mother died, and in December of that year he agreed to allow Malaya into his life.

    That day, he planned to drive the group to Blackhawk Plaza to get ice cream, then return to the East Ridge Court home, he reportedly told police. The mother and daughter arrived around 1:45 p.m., and he showed them into the backyard. He told police he then left to go inside, went upstairs, and took a shower.

    When he got out of the shower, he said he called Chavez on her cellphone to let her know he was getting dressed, but became concerned when she didn?t answer. When he went downstairs, he saw both of them, motionless, floating in the pool. Chavez was face down, he said; Malaya was face up.

    He said he ran to the pool, jumped in, and pulled them out one at a time, starting with Malaya, then called 911. A dispatcher instructed him on how to perform CPR on the girl.

    Police noted that the man had no marks or indications of defensive wounds when he talked to investigators, and that they asked him to take them upstairs and show them the bathroom where he said he had been showering when the drownings occurred. He complied.

    An autopsy confirmed both victims drowned and found ?no obvious signs of trauma,? according to court records. The coroner?s determination on manner of death was still pending as of Thursday afternoon, authorities said.

    My mom's pregnant cousin and her toddler died in their pool. They were electrocuted somehow. I dont think that is the case here, because dude jumping in the pool would have been electrocuted too.

    Either way, sad story.

    Hmmmmmm......

    It seems a little too convenient.

    I initially thought he did it, but here are the reasons why that wouldn't make sense. The fact that there was no other trauma found on them and no defensive wounds. I have a hard time believing that neither of them would put up some kind of fight or not have any kind of bruising from being held under the water. Also, the motive would have obviously been to keep them a secret from his family. The mother had died, but the Dad hadn't. Finding two dead people in your pool isn't going to be kept a secret.

    He could have had paying for the girl as a motive, but I still don't see how he could have managed to kill both without raising the alarm from neighbors or not leaving any marks on them.

    Perhaps she didn't know how to swim and the little girl jumped in the pool and started to drown? She jumped in to save her and also drowned.

    Here's more in the article:

    When police contacted Chavez?s brother, it raised their suspicions further. He told investigators both Chavez and Malaya were afraid of water, didn?t know how to swim, and that he doubted they?d have gone near a pool. He also said that in addition to financial support, Malaya?s father had offered Chavez large sums of money if she agreed to cut off all contact with him, and that Chavez was well aware that Malaya?s father didn?t want his family to know he had a daughter.

    Angie's electrocution theory could explain the lack of bruising. Booby trap the pool, then turn it off before you pretend to rescue them.

    True. It does seem way too convenient.

    But wouldn't electricity lease some kind of sign of trauma? The autopsy showed no sign of trauma. I have two different theories:

    1. He drugged them and then pushed them in the pool after the lost consciousness and let them drown.

    2. She poisoned herself and the little girl at his house as a last 'fuck you' to him for denying them.

    Either way, I am curious to hear about the toxicology.

    I am too. That was the other possibility in my head. He drugged them then rolled them in to the pool. I would think a push would maybe show some trauma if hitting the edge of the pool or bottom.

    I didn't realize that tox was still out. I assumed it would show up in the autopsy so assumed they ruled that out.

    About 1/2 to 2/3rds of electrocution victims show signs of burns but not all and I would suspect that electrocution in water would be less likely to leave burns.
    But yes suicide or the use of drugs is also possible.

    The thoughts I'm having about this do not involve this being a coincidence.

    1.) Suicide. She drowned her daughter and then herself to get back at him for not allowing them in his life for so long. I don't get it, but it's a possibility.
    2.) They were drugged

    I can't believe they just drowned the first time they went to visit him, moments after they got there. It's too far-fetched for me that this would be an accident,

    To be clear, I was saying that is how my mom's cousin died. I dont think thats what happened in this case.

    I think Boston's theory makes the most sense, but its confusing. The little girl may have fallen in and the mom jumped in after her, but if she was deathly afraid of water, she probably wouldnt be near it BUT my son doesnt like water and holds on to you for dear life in the pool, but was over my sisters and jumped in her pool. Kids are weird like that.

    The fact that he wanted them kept secret is what is working against him. Was he married?

    Baby daddy's name is possibly Charu Goyal. That's from Facebook.

    Pretty sure this is his mom. https://www.chapelofsanramonvalley.c...es/Vijay-Goyal
