I don't see how Garcia Hall is named after her. Am I missing something? Anyone have a link to the story about the incident?
I know there is a sign in honor of Carly Martinez outside of Garcia Hall...and if you go to yahoo, google, any search engine really and type in Carly Martinez you will get a ton of hits on the story.

He and his brother were involved in the disappearance, rape, and murder of Carly Martinez...Garcia Hall on NMSU is now named after her because she resided there when she was a student at NUMSU....what happened to her was inhumane and sick....these guys do/did deserve to die!
Adam was not involved in the disappearance of Carly Martinez, His brother Jessie and a guy named Jason Desnoyer were the ones involved. Adam was a small time wanna be, but he did not deserve to be butchered. I have known the Avalos Family since about 1980 and they are a good family who just unfortunately had sons who made poor decisions. Not every indiscretion a man has can be blamed on the parents or how he was raised, that is a cop out.

I am not by any means a social worker nor am I looking for a husband!! I just think that people nowadays are raised in a cycle of violence and hate and if someone (perhaps his parents) would've have showed him to simply be nice and caring he wouldn't have gone crazy in his adult life! His parents were probably jacked themselves!! And now look what happens.. he hurt himself, cops, inmates, and now the fam of who he hurt is now angry (or scared) and is gonna go crazy and sooo on!! So thats my point... where does this Psycho cyle end?? It seems like it just keeps multiplying!!
Please understand this: Some people are just born bad (soul-less), and can't be fixed...look at his picture...looks like he's having an AWESOME time!...lions kill, mosquitoes suck blood, and this guy hurts people...it's that simple sometimes...no deep explanation of childhood trauma or lack of parental love is needed in this case.

Well if he was born this way (which I don't believe) then someone shoulda got him on some psycho mind medicine then? But obviously no one cared about him enough to intervene... thats why he WANTS to live in jail for the rest of his life! He probably only robbed those people to get himself arrested so he could have a place to sleep every night? man thats a lot of tax payers money that we're paying! About $65 a day X365 days a week X20years to keep someone incarcerated... WOW! It woulda been a lot cheaper on all of us if we woulda just... HELPED! I KNOW that the first time he went to jail for something petty he came out to the real world and tried to be good and his family wouldn't accept him again... soo whats left... his "HOMIES" in jail became his family!! how many times does this happen????

Can someone tell me the reason that something like this thing is allowed to stay alive and possibly get out again to do the same to another person?
Maybe the vigilantes figure the ammo is too expensive to on him, if they can find any at all.

You are the problem with America today. People need to take responsibility for their actions. You do wrong, it is your fault. Everyone has a choice in this country. If you choose to break the law, you must realize the consequences your actions have. Don't blame it on society or that no one helped you when you had a bad day as a young boy. Get real. People who do bad need to be punished. Simple as that.

The "help" that you speak of cannot cure sociopaths or insanity (in other words, being born bad)...nor can love or acceptance from a family...there are safe places for the homeless to sleep in Las Cruces, but they too must be protected from individuals like this...for being so outspoken about "caring enough to intervene", I hope that your life choice is such that, with persistence, can and will make a difference to others who are receptive to the care you describe...but there comes a point in some situations (this is one) where society can do nothing, except distance this individual from the rest of us.

Way out west.. I say to you well said! Of course I always feel for victims and their families more than I care for the violent offenders in every situation... and I would not go to the extremity of allowing a person like this into my home or vehicle to even talk to him.... and try to HELP! I know my boundaries! I do believe prison is the best place for him at this point but feel like it is still sad regardless if he was born this way or if he was turned into a violent person? And maybe not in this case but if you look at a lot of violent offenders history... domestic abuse a lot of the times happens cause they saw a parent being abusive. Molestation happens a lot of the time because it was done to them... etc. We are all taught to see, hear, and speak no evil but it is starting to back fire. And like I said I am not a social worker or don't do public talks or anything like that in my life but I feel like we have families for a reason and we should all try to be there for each other and learn not to kick people when they are already down.

sounds like you are the only one that would seem to volunteer to just do what you just recommended. I believe he can be found at DAC Dentention Center before they process him out of Gallup. Maybe you can become pen pals for now, and rehabilitate him to be your husband? I'm sure he's gonna need someone when he gets out if he is still up for women? Or, maybe men? I don't know? You sound like someone very kind and sweet and gentle with lots of compassion and rehabilational skills.
All you people know nothing about Dom, I'm not claiming to be real close to him other than a phone call from him once or twice a week. I do how ever know what a messed up life he had before he ever got into trouble. How many of you got home from school as a preteen and found your mother dead from a self inflicted gun shot wound? Then have your entire family turn their backs on you? He grew up on the streets and had to do some bad things to survive. He keeps getting sent to Southern New Mexico Correction Facility where he has his food spit on by the so called correction officers who were good friends with the "man" he is accused of killing. He's been in solitary confinement for eight years even after being diagnosed with mental problems. You can only push a person so far before they break and then you cry about the results! The whole judicial system is flawed and does nothing to rehabilitate inmates. They only care about the money they get for housing them. Don't judge someone by their actions when you have no idea what led that person to do what he is accused of doing!
