The Constantinos were known for appearing on the Travel Channel’s hit series “Ghost Adventures” with Zak Bagans. They were paranormal investigators and specialized in audio and EVP analysis.
Constantino allegedly kidnapped his estranged wife Debra and killed her male roommate at their home in Reno on September 22. After the murder, Constantino took his wife hostage and fled to their daughter’s apartment in Sparks where he was in a standoff with Reno and Sparks police.
“Give me 15 minutes to gather my thoughts or I’ll kill her,” Constantino said to Deputy Chief Tom Robinson of Reno Police during negotiations.
During the 3-hour standoff with S.W.A.T. and the FBI, Constantino murdered his wife and eventually killed himself. He was previously arrested on August 8 and charged with kidnapping and domestic violence. Constantino allegedly kidnapped his wife and strangled her.
On September 7, Constantino’s wife said that she was filing for divorce. In a later message dated on September 15, she said that she was giving her cats away.
“The more you love your decisions, the less you need others to love them,” Debra Constantino’s last post on Twitter reads.
The more you love your decisions, the less you need others to love them.
