Famous Vegan Chef, Forks Over Knives writer, author, health expert kills wife and kids on Christmas

On Christmas Day, Anthony Milan Ross, 45, a vegan chef and motivational speaker, was arrested just after 10 p.m. for the murder of his estranged wife Iris Ross, 38, his son Nigel, 11, and his 10-month-old daughter Anora at their Phoenix apartment.

Ross was charged with three counts of first-degree murder, multiple counts of aggravated assault and assault against a police officer.

He is being held without bail. There is currently no known motive for the killings.

The news is heartbreaking and so confusing because just hours earlier, he had posted a video on Facebook of his 11-year-old son smiling and singing “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”:

“Hey guys, I’m smiling and I’m hanging out with Nigel on Christmas Eve. We’re going to embarrass ourselves! We’re going to sing.” 1

In 2012, when Ross weighed over 500 pounds, his weight loss journey began. Upon becoming a vegan and losing 200 pounds he was featured in the documentary “Eating you Alive” with James Cameron and Samuel L. Jackson. He would go on to grace magazine covers and travel the country to speak at events. He even had a book coming out, “The Change,” which you could pre-order on his website, Full Flavor Vegan.

By all accounts, he was a happy man who loved his children (he and his wife were divorced earlier this year) and loved helping people live healthy lives.

And last month, Ross talked about his weight loss journey with local Phoenix station 12News, saying:

“My body feels much better. I’m in better shape at 45 than I ever was when I was skinny in my 20s.” 2

Our hearts are just breaking for the family of his estranged wife.
