THE MURDERER(S) OF
Luis Garcia, Matthew Hunt & Kevin Shirley
Albuquerque - East Mountain
Brandon Craig was brought to trial
in March 2009 and on April 1, 2009, he was acquitted. However, the
jury foreman did tell the the media that some of the jury believed
that he probably did kill Kevin, Matt, and Luis, but they didn't
believe that the state proved their case beyond a reasonable doubt.
An arrest has been made for the
murders of these 3 boys.
Brandon Craig, 27, was charged Tuesday
November 7, 2006 with three open counts of
murder and an unrelated probation violation from a 2004 arrest .
