    It isn't normal, but not weird. A guy contracted a prostitute in a chat room, only the guy was some sort of murderer/psycho sort of guy. When the prostitute didn't come out in an expected amount of time, the pimp or bodyguard got suspcious, made entry, and a gun fight ensued.

    That is just my interpretation, but I know the areas mentioned in the incident.

    I just saw this story on the local TV news, and they mentioned that the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office is investigating as to whether the "killed killer" was a serial murderer.

    I used to live in Albuquerque. Honestly, in New Mexico, there is no such thing as "strange". In fact, things out of the ordinary are just expected. Case comparison: Area 51 in Nevada vs. Roswell.

    Area 51: "oooh, there's big conspiracy by us oooh! Scary"

    Roswell: "Yeah, the UFO crashed over there, want some green chile?" :D

    The article doesn't say what is happening with the good samaritan (I mean pimp). I doubt carrying a gun & shooting a customer in his line of work is legal - even in New Mexico:what:

    I have had to gag each time the news media here in Albuquerque describes Williams as her "boyfriend". What boyfriend allows his beloved to go into a stranger's trailer to "perform a dance"?

    Glad that we won't be wasting tax dollars for a trial for the pervert/murderer, but this story does make you scratch your head and wonder what this world is coming to.

    is from New Mexico.. which might explain how I've managed to stay married all these years (24 at the last accounting) ... the odd is just not that unusual to her.

    I know a couple strippers and boyfriends of strippers who had a similar arrangement. They went to the house. The friend or boyfriend stayed outside and either came back at a pre-determined time or listened in on the (active) cellphone to make sure everything was OK.

    The routine went something like this:

    "Hi! I'm Avalon, and this is my associate Bruno."
    "Do not touch Miss Avalon. Miss Avalon will dance for one hour. I will return in fifty minutes. Do not touch Miss Avalon."

    Sounds exactly like what tellner said. Either his girlfriend is a stripper, or of course, they could be swingers in the since that they occasionally hook up with other people for sex. Strange compared to what most of us do, but entirely normal in the range of things people do. Alot of people have had sex with someone they are not "going out with" or married to. They just didn't let their spouse know about it. Alot of people have had sex with more than one person at the same time. Happens. It's just most people, regardless don't make a life style, or a career out of it.

    Granted, this... arrangement certainly sounds rather shady. And if this is a boyfriend/girlfriend thing, I feel sorry for the boyfriend.

    I don't know what I'd do if I walked in on the guy that killed my fiancee and was sticking tape on her corpse. (Well, I kinda do know)

    To judge from the article, the police have not found any grounds to charge him with anything. Must not have been a convicted felon. Sounds as if the police think it was self defense, too.

    Sounds like a typical sociopathic would-be serial killer using the internet to meet victims. Fortunately, he won't be doing it again.

    Yes Virginia, there are werewolves. They look like men but aren't and eat our kind. You can sometimes tell it in the eyes.

    From the New Mexico State hangun regulations:
    It is unlawful for a person under 19 to possess or transport a handgun, except when the person is:

    attending a hunter's or handgun safety course;
    engaged in target shooting or in organized competition;
    legal hunting or trapping;
    participating in or practicing for a performance by a nonprofit organization formed under I.R.S. Code § 501(c)(3);
    traveling with an unloaded handgun to or from legalized activities;
    on real property under the control of the under 19 person's parent, grandparent, or guardian and while under their supervision.

    Can't but help wondering if the New Mexico State Police cut the 18 year old shooter a break.

    Erich might chime in at any time since he is the expert, but I have noticed that New Mexico law enforcement tends to turn a blind eye toward "administrative" violations of NM law concerning firearms possession when the shoot is justifiable self-defense. Several years before the enactment of CCW there was a case not far from my home when a jogger produced a concealed weapon and shot an attacker. He was not charged with any crime.

    Fortunately, law enforcement doesn't freak out in the presence of a firearm.
