Sheriff: New Mexico teen planned family shootings
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The New Mexico teen accused of killing his parents and three siblings is portrayed in charging documents as a boy haunted by homicidal and suicidal thoughts that included fantasies of killing his girlfriend's parents and gunning down random people at a Wal-Mart.
To his family, he was a bright and talented musician who played guitar, drums and bass with a church group. He also was a champion wrestler who dreamed of following his family's long tradition of military service, and a boy who accompanied his pastor father on rescue missions to Mexico.
In a statement issued Tuesday night on behalf of family, the boy's uncle Eric Griego described those traits, and called on the media and the public not to use 15-year-old Nehemiah Griego "as a pawn for ratings or to score political points."
