Whose sheriff, Eddy or Chavez counties? The incident occurred in Chavez County. Where do you buy a million dollar home in Carlsbad? The highest listed house on Riverside doesn’t even top 600,000. No law enforcement officer can even come close to securing a mortgage for that. Give us a break. And as for drug cartels, drug users give rise to drug sellers. You can have the best law enforcement unit in the nation but it won’t stop the tide of illicit drug use. A cultural shift in values is the only thing that will break the yoke of drug use.

Every bit of your statement was a fabricated lie. Thanks for playing.

I trust the body wasn't smoldering within 50 feet of any public or private building, walkway or road. Think of the carcinogens emitted. Have Police done a proper Global-Warming impact sheet yet?

You pukes in fly-over country are nothing but 'carbon-footprints' on two feet. Just let us on the Left coast run your life. Oops, since November 6 I guess we just will.

So since it says that you posted your comment in Artesia, That means you aren't in California... If you really believe that it is so terrible here, you should consider moving back to Cali and make everyone happy. Nobody wants to hear you complain about your nonsense and how you think you're superior. People have been found "smoldering" in many other places besides here...

Hmph. fine I'll go. I've got to get back to teaching my gender-sensitivity training class anyway. Then it's onto coaching my non-outcome-based soccer team.

Is this the same Wesley Davis that just got busted not long ago? Has one of his ears missing? If so, I remember him from 25+ years ago.

Why hasn't he been arrested? Is he being protected? How did he get Mark-gunpoint? I hope whoever did this horrible thing faces justice soon!

So...when is the FBI going to solve this case!!?? Many of Marc's loved ones and friends are more than ready for JUSTICE!! Seems like the general public knows who committed this crime...how long do we fool around before they are arrested and charged!!?? The areas we are looking at are small towns where people run their mouths and news travels...why no arrests in this case?!!??
really?

Tweakers will spread so many different rumors about what happened that the cops will never ever be able to sift through the bullshit and find out what really happened. This is why no one was ever charged for Sasha Hedgecocks murder. The cops can't find there own ass with both hands.

Sad, but people probably think its the same person because Artesia is a small town. How many guys are there around the same age, named Wesley Davis?
