Now it's up to the justice department to put this dangerous man in jail and keep him there for a long, long, long time.
Sad but true

Good job on the story, Terrance. I have to wonder if all the comments in this forum during the Sheriff election earlier this year helped get them in gear and get this solved? Comments were made about the roommates and the forged checks... Congratulations are in order to our hard working men and women in law enforcement. Thank you.

Now, what about Roland Salvatore, and, the man that was found dead at Gough Park about 5 years ago? Anything on those two?

The Grant County Sheriff's Department had the same information two years ago that they turned over to the state police two months ago that led to an arrest.... It was only ego and petty territorial bullshyt that stood in the way of this arrest ... that left a family waiting for two years ... we can only blame incompetence or inflated egos ... that led to this insulting miscarriage of justice ... the Sheriff should be apologizing to his constituents for taking so long to be bringing about an arrest ... since he had the same information that he had two years ago ..... apologize Mr. Villanueva ... don't congratulate yourself ... you owe it to the Torrisi to admit .. that maybe it wasn't under your watch ... but this whole case was mishandled from the very beginning and caused much more pain than was necessary ... give them that ... your constituents deserve that ... at the very least .... be a public servant ... and address the Torrisi family specifically ... a general "Oh, we did a great job," isn't going to cut it with what the court records are revealing. your department, whether you were sheriff at the time or not ... dropped the ball ... acknowledge such ... own up to those mistakes .. and you might just regain a little respect ...

I am not one to hate anyone... on the contrary- Allen and Bernadette Hurley- I hate you both!!! You took away someone very dear to me!!! I hope you both rot in hell!!! You are so freaking lucky there is no death penalty in New Mexico... they should make an exception in your case... they should allow a public execution!!! A hanging or allow us to stone you to death!!! You two suck!!! So, since you both get off with your lives... unlike Rachel...I hope you freaking rot and die in prison. I hope they beat you in there!!! Bitches!!!

Villanueava commends his office for what? Being stupid? They could have easily gotten the cell phone records that broke this case. Is it not standard operating procedure now days? Gimme a break, if this was not so sad it would be funny. What a bunch of Deputy Dogs... Villanueva being the top Bow Wow. He should resign in shame....oh yeah, you have to have a conscience to feel shame.

that poor Rachel did not deserve to die. Those responsible, how can you sleep at night? Such a terrible, horrible crime to live with.
