While the house was burning, she texted the boyfriend with the message, “I hope your house is okay,” according to reports from the authorities. However, Garay’s relative was the one who answered the phone.

Thankfully, when Soto started his rampage, Garay and his two-year-old daughter were not home. Garay disclosed that he dated Soto for about one month. He has now created a fundraising campaign to help him stand up again. 

Garay wrote on GoFundMe, “This is such a devastating time for us, as this home was the home my dad and I grew up in; this home has been part of my family for generations. I called the fire department but regrettably by the time they arrived everything I owned including my daughter’s toys, clothes, shoes, etc. was damaged/lost in the fire.

As we had only been dating for a month, the page said, “I never would have envisioned myself becoming a victim of such crimes. This is quite distressing, especially for my daughter, who keeps asking why we can’t go home.
