VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. -- Police dash cam video is giving more insight into what happened the day before investigators believe a Deltona mother and her two children were murdered.

A 911 call Yessenia Suarez’s co-worker made when her husband Luis Toledo went to her job and accused her of cheating on him was released Tuesday.

WFTV’s Myrt Price attained video from a Lake Mary police officer’s dash camera after police responded to that 911 call.

In it, Suarez talked to officers about the confrontation and described how she was being tormented by Toledo.

“He’s claiming that I’m having a relationship with one of my co-workers, so he went crazy,” Suarez can be heard saying in the video.

The audio was recorded in October by a Lake Mary police cruiser dashboard camera, after an officer arrived at to Suarez’s job following a 911 call from a co-worker saying that he came in the building and assaulted Suarez.

Even though the officer and Suarez talked inside the building, the dash cam was still able to record the conversation.

“He hit me here, right here, literally, he slapped me on my face,” Suarez is heard saying in the video.

She then told the officer about the troubled relationship.

“We’ve been having problems and I told him last weekend, I didn’t want to be with him, and he’s harassing me,” she said in the recording.

She also explained the great lengths that she said Toledo had gone to, to keep tabs on her.

"He put spyware on my phone so he can see everything I do from it, personal and professional, business stuff to,” Suarez said.

Toledo left the business before the cops arrived. He was arrested the next day on domestic violence charges, but by then Suarez and her two children, 9-year-old Thalia Otto and 8-year-old Michael Otto, had already disappeared.

Investigators said Toledo admitted to killing his wife after hitting her in the throat, but so far, he hasn’t said where he left her body.

Officials said he denied killing the children and has implicated someone else in their deaths.
