Teens Murder for Fun; Smash Heads of Homeless Men With Cinder Blocks
Alysa Landry - 7/24/14

Navajo President Ben Shelly is calling for answers in the gruesome murders of two homeless Navajo men last weekend in Albuquerque.
The victims, whose names have not yet been released, were beaten so brutally with a cinder block and other objects that they were unrecognizable. Their bodies, one lying on a mattress and one on the ground, were found Saturday morning in an open field in northwest Albuquerque.
Three teenagers, Alex Rios, 18, Nathaniel Carrillo, 16, and Gilbert Tafoya, 15, are each being charged with two open counts of murder, tampering with evidence, three counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and robbery. The teens likely will be tried as adults and all could face life in prison.

TACOMA, Wash. -- Emerald Queen Casino will cancel two Ted Nugent concerts that were scheduled August 2 and 3, citing racist remarks made by the singer.
Puyallup Tribe officials said they also received threats from community members who demanded the casino cancel his shows.
The Washington tribe's action comes days after the Coeur d'Alene Tribe cancelled Nugent's August 4 shows at its Idaho casino because of the rocker's "racist and hate-filled remarks."
The Idaho tribe said Monday it booked Nugent without realizing he espoused "racist attitudes and views." The tribe did not detail which of Nugent's specific views it opposes.
