Alyssa Berumen Biography
Who was Alyssa Berumen ?
A father found dead in a gruesome murder-suicide at his Orlando home killed his wife and three children before taking his own life, police said Wednesday.
Donovan Michael Ramirez, 45, killed his wife of 39 years, Stephanie Renee Ramirez, as well as the couple’s three children, Alyssa Berumen, 22, Sunny Ramirez, 11, and Shelby Rose Ramirez, 7. , before committing suicide, Orlando police said in a statement to The Post.
Investigators said a firearm was recovered Tuesday at the southeast Orlando home, where police were called to conduct a welfare check. Officers found all five bodies inside the residence.
“At this time, it appears that this is a domestic violence related incident,” police said.
A medical examiner will determine how the family of five died.
“Investigators worked through the night to gather as much information as possible,” Orlando police said. “As this is still an active and ongoing investigation, no further updates will be provided at this time.”
“I think it’s like the worst nightmare really,” Heather Collins told the station. “I don’t even know exactly how it happened. My heart goes out to the family. I can’t even begin to think about any of this, especially if there was a family involved.”
Collins and her fiancé, Justin Rossilini, live across the street from the family’s two-story home.

“It seemed like they were a normal family,” she told the station. “I saw the dad, I saw the mom and two little girls.”
Rossilini said the house had been quiet for several days until police arrived.
“The last time I saw them was five days ago when they were checking the mail,” Rossilini continued. “I did not hear anything. I wish I had. I definitely would have liked to be that concerned neighbor who did something about this situation.”
It’s unclear if police had recently responded to the house before Tuesday’s welfare check. An Orlando police spokesman said that was part of the ongoing investigation.
In this case, the family had only been here a couple of months, another sign of domestic violence. “Moving from one state to another. Moving across town. So that’s definitely a sign of domestic violence.”
Other signs include someone too scared to go places without checking with their spouse, or being afraid to buy something for themselves.
While authorities said this was an isolated incident, neighbors are still nervous. “We are very, very scared, because this is one of the safest neighborhoods here in Orlando,” said Maria Morris.
