Deputies and the children's mother were in phone contact overnight and deputies returned to Da Camara's apartment around 9 a.m. Monday. But neighbors say Camara did appear to be on edge in recent days.

Santa Rosa police say Camara, who was in a bitter custody battle with his wife, killed both his children before taking his own life Father's Day Sunday. "He was always playing with them, riding his bike out here with them". Officers had even visited with the father at his Slater Street apartment in Santa Rosa after he called to ask police for help with the custody disagreement.

Santa Rosa Police Lt. John Cregan told KTVU, "Our preliminary investigation shows they did have a volatile arrangement following their separation and there have been heated verbal exchanges that we're aware of".

Detectives were at the scene all day Monday, trying to determine a timeline, and a trigger for the sudden violence. "I feel the sorrow for this father but my heart is breaking for those kids and this mother", said Alvara Camara's neighbor Carrie Buchholz.

Another neighbor said Camara had seemed nervous over the weekend.
