The husband of one of the teachers killed in Tuesday’s bloodbath in a Texas school has also died.
This was disclosed by a family source on Thursday May 26, 2022.
According to a report, Irma Garcia was killed Tuesday trying to protect her students at Robb Elementary School.
On Thursday, a family member revealed that Garcia’s husband, Joe, died “as a result of a medical emergency.”
Irma and Joe Garcia were married for 24 years and had four children.
Debra Austin, who said she is a cousin of Irma Garcia, shared the sad story on a GoFundMe page.
“I truly believe Joe died of a broken heart and losing the love of his life of more than 30 years was too much to bear,” she wrote.
Irma Garcia, 46, and Eva Mireles, 44, were the two teachers killed when a teen gunman entered the school and began shooting. The shooter also killed 19 students before being killed by cops.
According to her page on the Uvalde schools website, Irma and Joe Garcia were married for 24 years and had four children.
