EL PASO, TX - All I want is for people to not see him as a hero, because that, he was not. He was not a good father, he was not a good man. He did not save my daughter, and to me, he killed my other daughter," Alicia Mireles Martinez said.

Martinez blames her dead boyfriend, Jerry Villar Jr. for her six-year old daughters death. Villar and Martinez's daughter died in an East El Paso apartment fire a week and a half ago, and Martinez says Villar Jr. is to blame. Now Jerry Villar Sr. is left defending his son's honor.

"I want to speak on behalf of my son, that he was a great person, a loving person, a loving father to those little kids even though they weren't his. He was a great man, a great person," Jerry Villar Sr. said.


"I woke up when I heard the alarm. It was very smokey," Martinez said, "from what I've gathered from what my daughter told me, he took the batteries from the fire detector."

Villar Sr. refused to say anything negative about Martinez, saying he didn't want to stoop to her level, but he says Martinez's story doesn't add up.

"At first she said she was waken by the fire alarm, then later on she says he took the batteries out. So she's contradicting herself."

Villar Sr. says his son loved life, and loved Martinez's kids. He says he's in shock that she could be saying those things about his son, and he wants people to know the fire department investigation will set the truth straight.

"We should at least have him rest in peace, instead of trashing his name and stepping all over his grave."

I sit and pray every day for this family and what they have gone through I cant even bare to imagaine what that is like to lose one but 2 of your family members in one day that must be harder for her maybe regret of why she stayed with a man like that if he was that way but sometimes we all as humans make not the best of choices but who are we to play Judge it is very sad both mothers lost a loved one whats even more sad if it does come out that he did do this then who is to blame then.

I was fortunate enough 2 have been given the opportunity 2 call Jerry, my friend. Jerry was a good man w a loving heart who went above & beyond 4 everyone he loved.
This whole incident has been an unfortunate tragedy 4 all those involved.
As a mother I cannot begin 2 imagine the pain of losing a child, the pain that Martinez is feeling but I wish she would realize that Jerry Villar Sr is enduring that same pain, rather than insult his sons memory she should let both Jerry & her daughter RIP

I've known Jerry and his family for many years and they are good people. Jerry was not a monster like this girl portrays him to be, he was a good guy. How can she blame him for the death of her daughter if he died too?! If he was such a bad guy, like she says he was, then why was he there with her?! It just sucks how you can say all these bad things about someone who cant defend himself, thank GOD he has his family and friends to do that for him. JOHNNY MONTES

my cousin died trying to save his family and because of that i will never be able to see him again. i will never again be able to tell him i love. and your sitting here making him look like the most horrible person in the world. get over it, your not the only one in pain right now, my heart is broken in half and i have cried every day and to hear these things said about my cousin infuriates me. i hope you all never have to go through something like this.

i unlike my uncle will say that shes an idiot... first of all my cousin is dead! whether he was a great father or not he is gone and unfortunately so is her daughter. so why dont you just let them rest in peace and stop trying to drag his name in the mud. instead of trying to ruin him why not just try and move on with your life for you and your daughter and leave us with the happy memories we had of him. if he wasnt such a good father than why the hell were you still with him?

FIRST OF ALL WE ALL DON'T KNOW PROVEN FACTS DO WE? ALTHOUGH AS PER WHAT SHE HAS ALREADY SHOWN ON DIFFERENT NEWS STATIONS IS THAT SHE DOES INDEED HAVE DIFFERENT STORIES. I CAN HONESTLY SPEAK ON JERRY'S BEHAVE I DATED HIM AND NEVER DID HE LAY A HAND ON ME NOR DID HE EVER RAISE HIS VOICE AT ME. HE WAS A LOVING MAN HE ISNT THE MAN EVERY ONE IS PICTURING HIM TO BE.THIS SOUNDS TO PREMEDITATED IT DOESN'T ADD UP.SHE NEEDS TO BE INVESTIGATED!HER DAUGHTER WAS THROWN FROM THE SECOND FLOOR AND NO INJURIES?

She did not make a fool of herself. There was more than 1 smoke detector in the house after all it is a 2 story apt.

You never know what goes on behind closed doors and no one would know better than this woman. She did not say she was woken up by the smoke alarm, she said ALARM...that could be the clock! So she wakes up to the clcok alarm and sees that it is very smokey. that sentence totally makes sense to me. And anyway, when somke alarms go off some people knock it off the wall with a broom to shut it up! He could have taken it down and the batteries out before he realized there really was a fire.

Okay if you guys hear her interview she claims she heard the smoke detector go off then she claims that she believes he took the batteries out. Dont get me wrong before you go on national TV and make a full out of your self recite,write down what you will be saying dont contradict your self. As well she was with him for 2 years i believe, she was there for a reason, Yeah its hard but she could of left like she had said she WAS going to do. BE a women (man) admit your faults

This girl has skeletons in her closet. She has not mentioned that both her kids dads have died. And now Jerry is gone odd I think. Why was she in the hospital asking about a truck and not her kids. She is attacking somebody that can't defend themselves. My husband knows this guy and knows he was not a bad guy and he loved those kids. Now she is hitting up on his friend. Investigate this girl and her changing stories.

If this man was such a bad man why was she with him? There are many other options she could have taken if she disliked him so much or was in fear for her or her daughters lives. There is the battered women shelter that helps women who are in fear of there boyfriend/husband and can help (if that is this case in this situation)Let them both RIP.

I understand were Martinez is coming from her pain nobody will ever understand! And my heart goes out to her and her family! On villar may he rip and to his family my heart also goes out to them but they have to undersatnd when a man is not a reall man Martinez has no reason to be creating lies and villar familly if ur gathering help for money all money should go to Martinez she is the one that lost everything Stop trying to keep it for ur self remember there is a god that sees it all

We should not chastise a young mother for grieving. She lost her child. She is understandably upset. A parent should NEVER have to bury their young child. I feel for this poor woman and I hope that she finds a way to deal with the horrible loss. She is not "calling him out" per say. She is stating facts. "Stepping on his grave" is a very strong quote. She was not doing so. She is stating the facts. His negligence caused this trajedy. I applaud her as I would not have been so diplomatic.

b4 everyone gets upset w/ me im not taking side my he rip and she shouldnt be calling him out like that

she did say the alarm it could of been the clock alarm she woke up 2
