The girlfriend of one of the suspects in a Jan. 16 hostage standoff in Downtown Los Angeles killed her 4-year-old son before trying to commit suicide in Reno, police said Wednesday. Acting on a tip from Los Angeles police that Maria Leacando Calambro, 23, might have made a suicide pact with her jailed boyfriend, Reno officers went to Calambro's mobile home. There they found Binh Canto Calambro, his wrists slashed and a rose on his chest, lying dead on the bed next to his unconscious mother.
