It took the police long enough to catch him. usually the people closest to a murdered person are looked at first.. get it together and the PIECE OF SHIT that killed the little ortiz boy is still out there in the streets of silver city.

Unfortunately, Mr. Hurley will never go to trial. He will be ordered to the Las Vegas Behavioral Health Unit for a mental competency evaluation. It will be months if not years before anything significant happens in his court case. And if you've ever met Mr. Hurley, you know right off the bat that he's mentally challenged. You can bet Gary Mitchell is going to jump all over Hurley's mental disability to get him off. This is how the judicial system works in this state.

Well, he may never go to trial but he will remain in either police custody or a mental hospital until he becomes competent to stand trial!! If he never becomes competent with meds to stand trial then guess what? He remains in the mental facility for however long it takes!! So, either way he loses his freedom and everything else that comes with that!!!! I do not feel sorry for him one bit!! How does a firearm shoot someone in the back of the head by accident when youre walking?????? ALL GARBAGE!! He isn't that mentally challenged if he can shoot someone-he knew what he was doing because he disposed of the firearm that was used, cleaned himself up, and treaded water for two years!!!! So...with that I hope and pray that justice will be served!! He is a heartless man!!!!!!!!!!

I think that the guy will receive justice. Either way you look at it, whether in a mental facility or in prison, either way he loses his freedom!! He will have plenty of time to think about what he did and how he went about it.

I say bs to his story that the gun went off accidently!! I am so sure!! Huh!! A gun does not shoot someone in the back of the head when you are walking with it in your hands!!!! So stupid, actually comical!!!!

He is competent to stand trial, he was competent to shoot her, go take a shower at the apartment they shared with his wife and kid, then dispose of the gun - he thought all of that out!!

He did it - let justice be served!!!!

Whoa whoa whoa David is still out there... We don't know if he's dead or alive. Please do not listen to any rumors that are going around. Until it's actually in the news paper it's not true. If anyone knows anything about his disappearnce please I beg u report it to Silver City police dept or crime stoppers. His family is really missing him and we dn't need to hear anymore or these bad rumor
