    Unhappy Altamonte Springs, FL Tragedy

    ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) - A man drove his car into his
    in-laws' house in a fiery Christmas Day crash, killing himself and
    his two children minutes before he was supposed to turn them over
    to his estranged wife, according to media reports.
    Shahab Behzadpour, his 3-year-old son, Sammi, and 6-year-old
    daughter, Nikki, died in the crash in Altamonte Springs, a northern
    Orlando suburb.
    Behzadpour and his wife, Hope Custodio, had shared custody of
    the children and he was supposed to let them spend Christmas
    afternoon with his wife, relatives and neighbors told WKMG-TV of
    Orlando.
    The car hit a pillar at the front of the house and caught fire.
    Custodio's brother Alex Custodio told WFTV-TV of Orlando that he
    believed his brother-in-law intentionally rammed the house, and
    that Behzadpour had threatened to harm himself and the children in
    the past.
    Alex Custodio said the family did not immediately know who was
    in the car when the crash occurred.
    "The whole thing was in flames ..." he said. "It was burning
    real fast and my wife said there was somebody inside there. She was
    trying to get the fire extinguisher and it wouldn't work, then we
    just got away because we thought it was going to explode and then
    we found out it was my brother-in-law's car."
    The Altamonte Springs police department and Orange County
    Sheriff's Department did not immediately return phone messages and
    pages Thursday night.

    Police: fire kindled inside car before crash into home

    (Altamonte Springs-AP) -- Investigators believe a man who drove
    his car into an Altamonte Springs home on Christmas Day had
    intentionally set the inside of the car on fire while distraught
    over the breakup of his family.
    Police are waiting on state testing to determine what was
    contained in a gasoline can and in some two-liter bottles found
    inside the car driven by Shahab "Mike" Behzadpour. He and his two
    children, ages three and six, died in the crash.
    Behzadpour crashed his large Ford into his in-laws home, where
    his estranged wife lived. Investigators say he and his wife were in
    the midst of a divorce, and she had obtained a court order to keep
    him away.
    The car exploded in flames. Authorities have NOT yet determined
    if the fire killed the children.
