The young dad had previously frequently posted pictures of the kids on Facebook with messages of love, including one where he wrote “The best part of my life”.
According to police, the 26-year-old had killed all three kids at the property in Mineral de la Reforma and then called his father to tell him what he had done, before going on the run to Baja California state, in northwestern Mexico.
He hoped to hide out in the city of Tijuana near the US border.
The suspect’s father reportedly called authorities to alert them to what his son had done.
When emergency service got to the property they found three lifeless bodies, with paramedics only able to confirm that they were dead.
Authorities organised a police operation among different states and he was arrested before reaching the city where he hoped to hide out.
The suspect was then taken to the prosecution of Hidalgo in order to start the judicial process.
Prior to this, the suspect used the name Fredy Castaneda – a common nickname of his middle name Alfredo.
Local newspaper Excelsior reported that he had loved his kids and was always bragging about their achievements on social networks.
