LILBURN, Ga. -- Wrecking crews have razed a meth house tied to the deaths of three young children.

Four-year-old Isaac Guevara, 3-year-old Ivan Guevara, and 18-month-old Stacy Brito were killed after an explosion and fire at the home on Spring Mill Drive off Five Forks Trickum Road in Lilburn in February 2011.

Crews tore the house down Wednesday morning. The contractor said it will take about three days to clear everything out. Neighbors said the boarded up building was an eyesore and tragic reminder in their community.

The children's mother Neibe Brito has been charged with trafficking methamphetamine and felony murder. Joseph Perez of College Park was arrested on those same charges. A third suspect, Ivan Gonzalez, who lived with Brito, is still at large. At one point authorities believed he may have gone to Mexico, but he could be anywhere now.

"We've had leads saying he was in many different places at this point," said Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Jake Smith. "None of the tips we've gotten has actually turned him up."

Gonzalez has brown hair and brown eyes and a tattoo of Jesus on his calf. He may have suffered burns to his face in the fire. He is about 5-feet-7-inches tall and weighs around 190 pounds.  Anyone who has seen him is asked to call Gwinnett County Police 770-513-5000.
