This is very upsetting. This man was literally found across the street from the home and our "wonderful" police couldn't even find him. I want to know what the ME says the time of death was. I want to know how they explained to his family how they couldn't find him less than a miles away?? These cops are a f-ing joke. It makes me worried for my mother and grandparents. Who's going to protect them when our DPS wont??I say we get rid of all those cops, especially the crooked ones like Corbett and Guinn. I understand they don't get paid all that well but they took an oath to protect and serve and they only ones they are protecting are themselves. APS you are a joke I can do a better job with my eyes closed and a hand tied behind my back. There are so many cold cases in this town it's disturbing.

Very sad, RIP Mr Buchanan.

I heard most of the scanner traffic and they did search for him and it was a grid search, officers assigned different areas and they even re-searched
those same areas.
Granted, had they been on foot, maybe they could have located him, I don't know.

Still sad!

Very sad this man somehow slipped through the cracks, and was not found sooner.

A sad chain if events, that not only did he seemingly elude police, and as well as I understand search dogs, but also eluded local residents.

This man wasn't found dead 15 miles out of town, but a mere few blocks from the nursing home, correct?

I would assume that an autopsy would be performed to determine the cause of death. Could've been simple starvation, or dehydration?

Or? Maybe this man sort of knew it was his time, and this was how he wanted to go?

The rest of us might never know?
RIP

Dang, if the guy hadn't been found I was certain someone was going to tell all of us on Topix that it was you Warrior. You did sort of show up at the same time. Oh well!

I'm just glad they brought you back and finally changed that diaper of yours. You smell like a skunk that crawled out of the ass of another skunk!

DPS Alamogordo Police as they now call themselves are a joke. They are nothing more than traffic cops. They dont even know the laws. They think that they can tell people what to do just because they wear a uniform.

Somebody has to make sure you don't go off the deep end on your daily diaper only walks. You idiots cost the tax payer a lot of money in search and rescue pay.

I have said pretty much the same thing, over 3 years ago in a public Alamo forum.

Yes, they are a Barney Fife comical joke, but they are also snakes.

Snakes in the grass, who lie in wait, preying on the citizens of Alamogordo, and it centers around greed, and how your city services are the greediest of all. I've studied how they operate, very predictable, and juvenile by their actions.

The city departments here, like all others in America today, are headed by Satan. And they possess a Satanic insatiable greed for your money.

I'm really surprised that this town, as badly as they want to get their hands on your money, didn't implement red light cameras like that "Myagi-Dope mayor did in Las Cruces.

We are all only human, we make mistakes in life, we all can make mistakes when we drive, but what I dream, and hope for, that people, just somehow magically, would drive safe, drive by the book, make no mistakes, no accidents, have current valid license, and registration, just so I could hopefully see the well run dry with this inflow of monies they they rob from the public.

It's nothing more than a money business, not much different than selling drugs. Same with your illegal DWI Checkpoints here, akin to Nazi Germany, with their illegal stop question, and search without probable due cause.

The city proves time and time again with their greed, and new-fangled thought out ways of trying to make money. The once proposed Bowling Alley that the City themselves was going to own, and run. Not much different that the Golf Course, huh?

Why did the COA make Oktoberfest a 2-day event, and run it till midnight both days? Greed, and visions of dollar signs is the answer.

Yes, in Germany, the fests run longer than one day, but this isn't Germany. And the COA I believe will get a rude slap as a reminder that it isn't this year.

Just watch how this flop will be brushed under the carpet, an ultra hush-hush of how things didn't come out smelling like roses.
Mark my words.

Because they didn't spend 100% of their resources finding a missing Alzheimer's patient?
Then you'd be bitching because they couldn't answer your 911 call when Mikey D's screwed up your order.

Consider this, about greed.

If this town hold an at large Mayoral election, you can trust good ole Susie will be cast aside like a redneck stepsister.

With a Mayor at Large, you might just see red light cams, speed cams, ala "The Rahmfather", that loser Obamite kiss-azz who's destroying the windy city, just like all libs do.

Don't ever believe some conservative publican who runs here isn't s wolf in sheep's clothing, a closet poser, who will do the exact opposite of what you thought they would.

Take your fine Governor here. All posing, and posturing. I'd bet my last dollar she voted for Obama both elections

been out to the "Carpetbagger Festival" this weekend at Alameda Park? I have.

I went for 10 minutes this morning, to confirm again what I already knew 10 years ago, just a bunch of carpetbaggers with exorbitant prices, looking for a sucker to leech off of.

I walked the park, ten minutes, and I was gone!
Nope, you clowns ain't getting a dime from me! Ha Ha!

$8 for a Gyro Sandwich, and $10 for a Gyro Plate?! No spit either? Where was it sliced, or did they buy the pre-sliced garbage? No service, nowhere to sit, served on some cheapazz paper plate, no thank you!

$7 Taco Plate, on those mini, nasty African witch doctor shrunken Tortillas, nowhere to sit, a teaspoon of nasty old meat? No thanks, I'll pass, and do my digestive system, and wallet a favor.

Notice how Gasoline rose 20 cents a gallon over this weekend? Again, "fueled" by greed, dupe the idiot suckers traveling through, or who wants to celebrate like they are an American. What American? People in America are no longer americans. You clowns here all are holding their hands out.

Again, no thanks, I'll sit this one out.

Who won at the Carpetbagger Festival? The city if Alamogordo might have made money. I hoope the park is trashed, and it cost $15K to bring it back to how it was before the Carpetbagger Fest.

Do they deserve to be reamed? IMO, yes! Tough Shytsky!

They are a joke because they are unqualified and uneducated. Here is an exemple. In the rat hole trailer park on 16th this guy is one day selling drugs then a cop with a crack whore girlfriend knocked up by yet another skag. He weighs about 130, is about 5' tall. Sort of looks like a kid playing dress up.

Another would be Detective Roger. You may remember it came out a few years back that he hit the skids bankrupting with dozens of payday loans to support his habits. This came as a complete surprise to the chief because this department does not even run credit checks, so you have an addict desperate for money chasing criminals but only catching ones that have no money.

Then there is that guy Ramsdale in the thread someone just reignited that was busted high on the job as a result of the dust from packaging the confiscated cocaine he was selling out of his police car.

It isn't just the fact that they couldn't find an elderly man wandering the street in this tiny town that makes them a joke. It is that they are clowns that makes them a joke.

Feel free to add incidents to this list. Its a shame the mayor is more concerned with decorating city hall and traveling to DC than fixing the problems at home.

Obviously YOU could have found him. How did you explain that you didn't to his loving family? You have blood on your hands, you should be ashamed of yourself. What a PATHETIC human being you are to let an ill man die!

Enjoy the scanner for now but in time silence is inevitable..... Due to people who don't know how to stop repeating what they hear and other things.

They never will do anything such as go look. All they do is sit and listen to a scanner thn complain or comment negatively about any issue. Give it time these folks who Rambo on will spoil that hobby for many out there who actually help rather then sit and moan. Taking time but its coming. Silence.

Coming from a clown that goes by a rat shack item. Right. Enjoy thy while it lasts. Ever heard the expression the parrot killed the pirate? Wait till the fire dept is fully split. They'll hear. You won't. None less the few bad apples have spoiled the barrel and that hobby will come to end.
