Something is wrong here. The way I read the story is his 3 brothers killed him and his mother hid the evidence.
If this is true - this is crazy!
Guess they didn't like him.

Since KOB & Topix are without a copy editor, here is the family tree: Mom & her 3 kids (that are in jail) live in Socorro. The victim is from Crownpoint but was in Socorro to attend NM Tech & Joe is from Utah.

This just bizarre. This whole family is totally insane. Did you see one of the kids stick his tongue out at the camera on the news last night? What's with the one with the pink hair?(eye roll)

There must be something in the drinking water in Socorro that makes its residents do bizarre things.

as usual the story is totally twisted...these guys are not related to the guy that was killed he was dating a twin and one of the twin boys was dating her twin...the article does say its his mom and three brothers but again...not the truth at all....also they didnt ambush him they all agreed to meet and settle a score because he was beating his own girlfriend and the boys had tried to stop it earlier..they all met up to fight it out...I repeat these boys were not related to the victim other then one of them and the victim were dating sisters...

The Artesia Daily Press got the same story, wrong story I guess. The paper says they were all brothers. Looks like there needs to be some official clarification from the news stations.

This story is incorrect. The victim, Garrett Joe was not murdered by his family. The people who did this are not related. The family of Garrett Joe request a correction to this story immediately!

The people in the socorro are crazy uneducated and stuck in back wood small town beliefs. The kids at TECH are neards! equalls murder! Socorro has a history of towns folk killing TECH students. Look it up just recently there was a killing with an AK-47 and a TECH student!

The kids at Tech are neards? What's the matter, they wouldn't let you in because you can't spell? NM Tech is a damn fine school. Equalls murder? Give me a break.
