LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Divorce documents reveals a bitter custody battle filled with accusations of potential parental abductions, harassment, allegations of molestation, and a request for a domestic violence restraining order by Aramazd Andressian Jr.’s mother, Donna Estevez.
According to the legal filings in the divorce paperwork obtained by the Pasadena Star-News, both parents fought for sole custody, fearful that the other parent would flee with the child to another country — he to Iran or Armenia and her to Cuba.
In November of 2016, Estevez filed for a domestic violence restraining order, citing Andressian Sr. lied about his employment as a Dean at ITT Technical Institute. She says she found out during the divorce that ITT Tech let him go in 2012.
She also cited Andressian Jr. told his grandmother he heard his daddy say that grandma “needed to go be with the angels because she didn’t belong here anymore.”
Estevez says the boy also told her that his father “tries to hurt mommy so she can go to the hospital, so he can have me.”
According to the Pasadena Star-News, Andressian Sr. also told South Pasadena Police that his son was being molested by a 13-year-old boy named “Omar,” the son of Estevez’s boyfriend, which launched an investigation by the Department of Child and Family Services.
According to court documents, in April the estranged couple agreed to alternate weeks with little Aramazd.
Andressian Sr. got the first week of the new custody agreement with his son. Little Aramazd was never seen again.
Three weeks after the disappearance, Estevez asked the court to change the custody order and give her sole custody and a restraining order — saying:
“My request was denied and now my son is missing,” she said.
