Pasztor abducted her children in September of 2016, prompting an AMBER Alert. Police say Pasztor kicked in the door of her father's home, took her two non-custodial children in a stolen tan Mercury vehicle and drove to Elkhart County. She admitted to police to smothering her two children in a park before driving to the Elkhart Police Department.

Pasztor stole the tan Mercury she used to take the children in from Macomber, police say. Court documents allege Pasztor admitted to shooting Macomber with a large deer hunting rifle that he had purchased for her.

According to court documents, Pasztor says she shot Macomber to send a message to the cartels not to mess with her.

Pasztor claims she knew Macomber was setting her up because he had a shovel and wires. She overheard Frank tell his son he would send pictures.
