OK El Paso Times, your headline starts with "Hidden El Paso:" but this rather good story is about something that happended in New Mexico...hmmm. Was this stroy published because of the El Paso lawyer that represented Nuzum in his defense???

If someone had the time and the knowledge on how to investigate, they should look at the records of the troopers that were last seen with Nuzum.

Sounds pretty obvious that the cops were behind it, and tried to cover it up. The Sheriff would be my guess, especially the way he tried to stop the suspects from getting lawyers. Plus, you have racism to take into consideration. Using a bike-lock on a man's testicles is cruel and unusual.

hello??? mcfly? anyone in there?? did you not read the entire story? no it didn't have to do with the lawyers defending Nuzum. The story clearly stated it was because of Finley, an El Paso Herald Post writer, that brought attention to the corrupt law enforcement in New Mexico. He wrote stories about the corruption and pretty much helped Nuzum's case and also helped in the civil rights case on the black man that was also accused of the murder.....that has alot to do with "Hidden El Paso"......moron.

Now why in da world would President Harry S. Truman pardon persons of such demeanor? It was a white mans world back then, blacks were railroaded.

Great story, but it sounds like a delibert cover up on the part of the sheriff I belive this lady was murdered by the sheriff and the two cops seen beating her.

President Bush did not pardon them; he commuted their sentence. Big difference, although they should have been pardoned.
