Everyone is complaining about how lenient the judges are and how bad of a job the sheriff is doing, what did you all expect? You VOTED THEM IN to their offices!!! Now "you get what you paid for" and we all will suffer for a very long time!! Quit complaining about them and just deal with it!

I have read this whole thread, and I have to say something...I happen to have a close connection to the people involved, however not close enough to say with certainty that Victor is completely innocent, he did kill a man. However the “story” is that yes Henry was abusing his whole family in many ways, and though no one deserves to die, Henry’s character is NOT innocent either! Does anyone really think that a 22 year “kid” with no other history of violence would just kill a man for no reason!? There was two people in that house and one is dead however when the story comes out in full detail I am sure there will be more understanding to how Victor could “beat” his step-dad.

Well said.

Henry had a lot of family who want to remember the good and I'm sure he was a good guy most of the time. He apparently had a dark side and it was probably very visible after drinking beer with his compadres all afternoon. Victor stood up to it and now he sits in jail.

There appears to be a lot of guilt to go around. This truly is a sad story.

another thing people need to know is that it was planned by the family for victor to beat henry up but they didnt plan for him to die. the other big reason for all this was that weekend they were all in albuquerque and on the way back victor got stopped and thrown in jail and henry didnt want to give d money to get him out so people can look at all that too since everybody is going on hear say

How can you ask "what mother in her right mind would have stayed"? Don't you watch the news? All over NM, mothers are allowing their boyfriends, husbands, fathers of their children to abuse their children and themselves. This is what happens when the ignorant breed.

mothers across have been alowing the abuse of their children by their husbands boyfriends and religious leaders. as long as we punish people who kill the abusers this will be a problem. it dosen't matter whether they are black, white, a priest or bishop this has gone on too long.

it is obvious that you have chosen a camp. it is somewhat disingenuous to claim otherwise. you have already charicterized one side of the story as lies. I have no idea whether the guy needed killing or if it is an attempt to cover-up a coldblooded murder but you definatly have come down on one side of the arguement.

This guy is not a "kid" he is a full-grown adult and he is obviously also a killer! Your comments are ridiculous.
you dont know anything. your ignorant so stop trying to act like your know anything about victor or what happened that night. stick to your level reading such as highlights or picture books. this family is going through enough and dont need their son being called a murderer. If you acutally come down to NM then you can talk until then sit your ignorant ass down.

Here we go again -- Where the hell is Santa Clara PD? Residents of that Village PAY for a police department -- such as it is! Get real: If you want REAL Law Enforcement there, DISBAND that so-called police department and contract with the County.

Whilst the Sheriff's Deputies are responding to Santa Clara time-and-time again, they are NOT out in the unincorporated areas of the County, but lest we forget -- You think there is nothing out there but tumbleweeds. What about Arenas Valley, Mimbres, San Lorenzo, Faywood, San Juan, Tyrone, White Signal, Redrock, Cliff, Gila, Buckhorn, Mule Creek, Mangas, Oak Grove, Gila Hot Springs and others? I guess none of those places and thier residents or property count. Let's send ALL the Sheriff's staff to Santa Clara. NONSENSE!

I used to date Victor before this happened and he wasn't that type of guy! He was very nice to people and to me as well.. But if a person is abusing someone another person will get tired of it AND SOON!!!
