PHOENIX, AZ – Hours after posting a Christmas video online with his young son, noted vegan personality Anthony “Milan” Ross fatally shot his estranged wife and both of their children.

Anthony Ross, 45, is a vegan chef, author, and motivational speaker who has appeared in a film alongside Samuel Jackson and Penn Jillette, extolling the virtues of not being a disgusting, meat-eating fatass like myself.

While in his 20s, Milan weighed 518 lbs and was suffering from depression and a host of other ailments. According to Milan, all of his problems disappeared once he adopted a vegan lifestyle.

After losing more than 225 lbs, Milan began speaking about his vegan lifestyle and how it saved his life. Since then he has been on the cover of vegan magazines and conducts motivational speeches that encourage people to live a healthier lifestyle.

Absolutely nothing wrong with that but, unfortunately for his wife and kids, a head of lettuce and some barbells may help you lose weight… but it don’t fix batshit crazy.

See, Milan’s mental health has been deteriorating ever since his June divorce from his wife, 38-year-old Iris Ross. According to Iris’ sister, Milan had a “very, very dark side” and since the split he’d been alternating between anger and trying to get his wife back — even stating he was going to put a hex on Iris.

“The man was off his rocker. One minute he was yelling at her, calling her a ‘whore,’ and the next minute wanting to tell her he loved her and wanted them to be a family unit,” she said. “He would also claim that he was working with a voodoo priest in New Orleans to put a hex on her.”

His attempts may have been working as Iris let Milan stay at her apartment so he could spend Christmas with her and their two children — 11-year-old Nigel Ross and 10-month-old Anora Ross.

On Christmas Eve, Milan posted videos online of him and Nigel happily singing Christmas carols.

Hour after the above video was posted, witnesses saw Milan chasing Iris out of the apartment before shooting her dead in the parking lot. He then went back inside the apartment and they heard two to three more gunshots.

Milan then came back outside and began his wife’s pockets, reportedly looking for her car keys. When the witnesses asked if the woman was ok, Milan allegedly replied “no” while pointing a gun at them and going back inside the apartment.

What followed was a six-hour standoff between Milan and Phoenix police. Officers believed the two children were alive, so they tried talking Milan into not hurting them and to surrender.

“Throughout the negotiations, he made comments that he had killed the children. He made some notifications to some family members that he had killed the children,” Sgt. Jonathan Howard said.

Police eventually shut off power to the apartment and sent in a robot that revealed Anora had been shot to death. With this revelation, officers forced their way inside and were able to take Milan into custody. Nigel would be found dead in another room.

In Milan’s first court appearance, he was ordered held without bond on three counts of first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault, 19 counts of aggravated assault on an officer and one count of discharging a firearm within city limits.
