Fear prevents assistance. Again a woman loses life. A passerby heard Mr. Busey murdering, and walked on. We must stick up for each other. We cannot allow fear to divide and conquer. Condolences to the family. May justice suddenly visit the murderer of this young woman. May the woman who refused sanctuary be forgiven her sin.

Ok, someone banging on your door at 3am and didn't open the door??WTF did you call the cops? Or just go back to bed? Your as much to blame if you didn't do a thing to lift a finger to help this poor soul....nothing surprises me anymore about how you people handle life....sleep tight...

The situation about not offering sanctuary is not a sin. Get a grip. Maybe she could have handled it differently by having the young woman stay on her porch while she called the police.

My condolences to the family for their loss.

Very unfortunate. Prayers to the victim and family. Such a horrible situation.

I don't quite know how I feel about the lady who gave no quarter. On one hand I wonder why she didn't do more on the other she was waken up in the middle of the night, was by herself, etc. How would she know that it was not an attempt to burglarize her house? It appears the victim was running from someone. First thought....if she has a boyfriend, Corrales PD needs to start the questioning there.

Just don't know....either way...extremely tragic for all involved.

Yeah right, sit on the steps of a porch and wait, what if someone is chasing you? That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Turn the lights on, do something, stupid homeowner didn't want to get involved, what goes around, comes around. Stay away from the dich homeowner, you might end up drinking dirty water...

The homeowner is not to blame here. You'd be calling her an idiot for opening her door at 3am if she ended becoming a second victim. And yes, she called the police and they came out but they weren't able to find Alyissa anywhere.

Questions?

How long did it take the police to response?

How much of a search did they do, just a quick look see or did they spend a couple hours looking around?

Why are they not telling Mr. Youngblood what they know or enough to show him they are truly working on this case?

This does not sound like she was on drugs but more like she got away from someone who was going to harm her and did.

Another young life taken and no answers yet on the, what, why, where and how questions.

Come on Corrales Police tell us and Mr. Youngblood some answers, show us you are actively working this case.

Homicide should be on this case, are they?

My guess is that the homeowner had no protection in her home. No shotgun, no handgun, no rifle, and or no training. I can understand the fear about opening a door with the home invasions, but I am fairly convinced my wife could have dealt with what might have been behind this young lady. I am wondering if she was being used by others to get that door open.

One other thought. Wonder if the guy who lives in the bosque behind our house was involved. The one the Corrales police, Sandoval County Sheriff, BCSO and the Rio Grand Conservation District officers refuse to dislodge.

She was probably experiencing meth paranoia. Sad story.

The lady in the house lives alone; who knows how old she is. Unfortunately, people cannot be trusted these days.

Read the article again donkey butt. At least the lady did phone the police; she didn't just go back to bed all happy.

This young girls death was discovered on 12/8! Why has it taken so long to get this story out? A more timely reporting would have been more likely to bring out reports of suspicious activities observed by other Corrales residents at the time.

It would also be helpful to know more about the circumstances prior to her death. Does her family or her grandmother who they were just visiting live in live in Corrales or did this young lady travel to there after their dinner? Not a very good job on reporting this one KOB.

You have no right to judge the woman living alone. A single woman living alone faces fears and challenges that you can not imgaine.

It is a sin to judge... may you seek your own forgivness

At least she called the police. But I would have done more to help because calling police in this area is not much of a help with the ridiculas response time they have as it was for us when someone was breaking into the house and it took them 2 hours to show up and the police station is 1/2 a mile away. What has happened is very terrible.

Sorry, thank you for calling the police, now you have Sandoval County and Corrales PD's- are both departments worthless????

Wait, yes they are.

This must strike terror in such a relatively, calm, safe place like Corrales,NM. I wonder if there is an online connection involved like you see on C.S.I all the time? Did she meet up with a creepy stalker from online, you looks too smart and cute for that. It must have been someone she had some trust for in some way initially.

This young lady, God Bless her soul, was she lost? What was she doing roaming around at 3:00 in the morning?

This unfortunate sequence of events that lead to the death of this beautiful young lady was tragic - pure tragedy, and one can only wonder why she roaming the streets asking for shelter. You think of the Baby Jesus and Mary and Joseph being turned away. She found shelter in a ditch for some reason - maybe it could have been worse. I'm hopeful that God with was with her and that she was not alone.

Rest In Peace, sweet child. God will open his doors for you.

I don't think anyone has right to blame the woman who didn't let the young woman into her home. No one knows what they would have done unless they were in that situation. We all can say she should have done this or done that but we don't know until we're in that situation. I live by myself and I don't know what I would do if that ever happens to me. The only one to blame here, if it is a homicide, is the person who committed this horrible crime.
