KOB4/Metropolitan Detention CenterA suspected white supremacist is facing charges after allegedly ditching a bullet-riddled car containing three dead men in the parking lot of an Albuquerque hospital this week.Richard Kuykendall, a 41-year-old with an “apparent association” with the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang, was charged Friday with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition for his role in the Wednesday triple homicide, according to a criminal complaint filed Friday in the U.S. District Court for New Mexico.Prosecutors allege that after a deadly shootout in a nearby alley, Kuykendall drove to Presbyterian Kaseman Hospital with the victims, removed his shirt and told a security officer “that there were three dead guys in the Chevy” before he walked away.The criminal complaint—first obtained by Seamus Hughes, a researcher at George Washington University’s Program on Extremism and a Daily Beast contributor—notes that authorities only believe Kuykendall “may be responsible for the death of one of the three men.”The victims, who have not yet been identified, were also members of the gang. Kuykendall is being held on bail at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Albuquerque.SHOOTING VIDEO: @ABQPOLICE said three bodies showed up at Kaseman Hospital around 3pm yesterday.

When Kuykendall tried to get in the car, shots were immediately fired at him.Kuykendall “ducked and maintained a low center of gravity as he ran around the front” of the car while shots were still being fired. He was able to jump in the car.She Masqueraded as an Aryan Princess to Take Down Neo-NazisA few seconds later, Kuykendall exited the car and walked toward a dumpster, the complaint states. “Kuykendall remained next to the dumpster for nine seconds and then went back to the car.” The Albuquerque Police Department later found a 9mm pistol in the dumpster.Prosecutors state that after possibly moving a person inside the car, Kuykendall got into the driver’s seat—on top of the presumably dead driver—and drove to the nearby hospital.Once there, he took off his shirt, revealing several tattoos associated with the neo-Nazi group, including “a large letter B on his left shoulder and an iron cross on his left breast,” the complaint states.When authorities arrived, they found a car “riddled with bullet holes” with a loaded pistol under the driver’s seat, an empty pistol on the back seat and spent bullet casings throughout the car, the complaint says.It’s far from Kuykendall’s first run-in with the law. “Kuykendall has an impressive criminal history, with at least 35 arrests in New Mexico and Massachusetts,” the complaint states. His crimes range from forgery and identity theft to larceny and conspiracy, to an assault of a family member in 2018.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Most of the arrests made were misdemeanors of public intoxication, with nine DWI arrests included, authorities say.
A truck driver in Florida was making his scheduled stops early Wednesday morning when he came across a grisly scene along the side of County Road 219. It was the bodies of two teenage boys, shot to death and sprawled along the side of the road. “I just found two bodies,” the driver said in a 911 call released by the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday, according to WKMG. “I’m shaking right now.” Authorities would later identify the teenagers as Prestin Wayne Nixon, 16, and Isaiah Alexander Nelson, 17. “These two young men have been robbed of their chance to live their lives having been senselessly taken from their families,” Capt. Jon Galvin said in an update to the case Thursday. According to Galvin, the bodies were discovered just after 5 a.m. on Wednesday morning. The shocked trucker told the dispatcher that the bodies were in front of a Wildwood house along the road. “They’re just laying on the ground,” he said. He warned other drivers to turn around before coming upon the grisly sight and pleaded with dispatchers to send a deputy as soon as possible. “I’ll pray for their souls,” he said. “I can’t believe this.” Galvin said both teens appeared to have “injuries stemming from gunshot wounds.” Authorities do not believe it was a random shooting. “This is a tragedy and it has deeply impacted our community,” Galvin said. “We believe at this time that both victims may have known their assailant.” Both teens were being homeschooled when they died, however, Nelson had friends and family attending Wildwood Middle High School and grief counselors are on hand at the school for those in need. Investigators have released few other details about the double homicide, citing the ongoing investigation. “Our detectives are working tirelessly to follow up on any leads and we’re asking for the community’s help in solving this brutal and senseless murder,” Galvin said. Oxygen.com reached out to the sheriff’s office but did not receive an immediate response. Anyone with information about the case is urged to contact authorities.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador will mark the killings of 303 Chinese people during the revolution that the city of Torreón has tried to forget Revolutionary soldiers on horseback in the city of Torreón in 1911. Photograph: Courtesy of the Torreón municipal archive The first to die were Chinese agricultural workers, who were killed in the orchards and gardens surrounding the Mexican city of Torreón by advancing revolutionary forces in the early hours of 13 May 1911. After skirmishes at the outskirts of the city, the outnumbered federal garrison abandoned their positions and slipped away under the cover of darkness. As the rebels entered the city, they were joined by thousands of locals, fired up by racist speeches. A herb-seller is said to have clutched a Mexican flag and screamed: “Let’s kill the Chinese!” A revolutionary commander, Benjamín Argumedo, is believed to have fired the first shot. Over the next 10 hours, the mob sacked Chinese-owned businesses, looted the Chinese bank and dragged their Chinese neighbours by their distinctive braids, trampling them to death with horses. “Argumedo gave the order to kill the Chinese,” said Julián Herbert, author of a history of the massacre. “But everyone joined in the killing. It was soldiers, men, women – everyone.” A total of 303 Chinese people were murdered in the massacre at Torreón, then a burgeoning railway town some 500 miles south of the US border. Afterwards, rebels and locals posed for photographs with the bodies of their victims before they were hauled away by the cartload. Bodies of the dead were carried away on carts and buried in mass graves. Photograph: Courtesy of the Torreón municipal archive The savagery was an appalling expression of a wave of anti-Chinese racism which swept throughout North America in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In the US such sentiments led to the Chinese Exclusion Act banning the immigration of Chinese labourers; in Mexico they culminated in the expulsion of most of the country’s Chinese population in the 1930s. The Torreón massacre caused indignation in China, and Mexico eventually agreed to pay 3.1m pesos in gold in reparations, although the payment was never made. In Torreón, nobody was ever charged – let alone tried or convicted – over the massacre, and today the events of 1911 remain largely unmentioned. There are no monuments marking the tragedy and attempts to commemorate the events have been met with resistance. “This matter of the Chinese killings makes us confront a truth that we haven’t wanted to talk about locally,” said historian Carlos Castañón, who oversees the municipal archives. Revolutionary forces in the city of Torreón at the time of the massacre. Photograph: Courtesy of the Torreón municipal archive On Monday, however, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is expected to travel to Torreón to seek forgiveness for the massacre as part of a year-long series of events marking some of the darker chapters in Mexico’s history, including the 500th anniversary of the fall of the Aztec capital, Tenochtitlán. “It’s an honest gesture, which transcends politics,” said Castañón. “For the first time, we’re going to confront the big lie that we’ve perpetuated – and the silence of our complicity.” In Torreón that silence is still so absolute that no monuments mark the massacre, which killed half the city’s Chinese population at the time. A commemorative plaque was swiftly stolen. A statue erected in a public park in 2007 was vandalized and later removed, but will be restored to a public plaza for the commemoration. Victims of the massacre were buried in common graves, including one which is now covered by a roadway and small playground. “Local historians considered this just an anecdote: ‘One day in Torreón they killed some Chinese people’,” said Castañón, who has combed through archives in an attempt to learn more details of the massacre, including the victims’ names. The president’s plan to commemorate the massacre has predictably ruffled feathers among some in Torreón. “All of humanity would have to apologise for what’s happened through the centuries,” groused the then mayor, Jorge Zermeño, in February, according to the newspaper El Sol de la Laguna. Revolutionary troops on horseback in Torreón. Photograph: Courtesy of the Torreón municipal archive “We will participate [in the ceremony] but we will have our own opinion,” he said. “I think that in wars, there’s a lot of confusion. These are events of the time and have to be seen in the context of which they occurred. Of course they were regrettable.” Much of that grumbling stems from Torreón’s “foundational myth” as a city of hardy immigrants who conquered the desert, said Javier Garza, a former newspaper editor in the city. Before the massacre, Chinese migrants opened a bank, built a tram connecting Torreón with the neighbouring city of Gómez Palacios and ran most of the local laundries. Their farms fed the local population. “The Chinese community [in Torreón] was the most prosperous [Chinese community] in Mexico,” Herbert said. “It wasn’t the most numerous, but it was the most prosperous.” In his book The House of the Pain of Others: Chronicle of a Small Genocide, Herbert disputes the local narrative that the pogrom was a spontaneous uprising by poor Mexicans, arguing instead that anti-Chinese racism was rife in Torreón – and across the country. Herbert’s conclusions proved so controversial that he was unable to hold an event promoting the book in Torreón. Torreón was a burgeoning railway town at the time of the massacre.

Most of the survivors fled Torreón, though some later returned, and the local Chinese community now numbers about 1,000. Antonio Lee Chairez. Photograph: David Agren/The Guardian Some in the Chinese community still seem reticent to speak of the massacre, even as they express pride in their role of building Torreón into a city famed for industry and agriculture. “I think [Amlo’s] visit is important and the event merits this. But the [Chinese] community is not requesting it,” said Antonio Lee Chairez, 90, whose father Juan Lee survived the massacre with the help of neighbours. “But it has to be positive [that he is coming] – because this was an outrage that nobody ever admitted.”

A Texas elementary school principal was shot to death by her husband outside her home this week while her two children were inside, police said. Erica Allen, 35, was found in the front yard of her League City home on Wednesday. Neighbors in the community an hour southeast of Houston witnessed her estranged husband shoot her and then go back into the house, according to KHOU. Nicholas Allen then apparently called the police and falsely claimed that a home invasion was in progress at his house. "The investigation determined that the initial call of a home invasion was untruthful, and the incident stemmed from a domestic problem," reads a statement from the League City Police Department. The 40-year-old allegedly told police that there were “innocents” inside the house, presumably referring to his two children. When a tactical team responded at around 1:30 AM they found Nicholas Allen's bodyinside of a closet, dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. The 2-year-old and 7-year old were found unharmed inside the home. Erica Allen Photo: Facebook Erica Allen was a principal at Heights Elementary School in the Texas City Independent School District, KHOU reported. Her husband was an assistant principal at Wells Middle School in the adjacent Spring Independent School District.ABC 13 reported Erica Allen had filed for a temporary restraining order in Galveston County in July against her husband. KHOU obtained court documents saying she’d filed for divorce and that the home where she was murdered was recently sold.If you are experiencing domestic violence, you can call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233, or go to thehotline.org.

Two additional people have been indicted for the kidnapping and murder of a Minnesota real estate agent who was attacked after being lured to a fake house showing. Monique Baugh, 28, was shot on New Years Eve of 2019, along with her boyfriend and Minnesota rapper Jon Mitchell-Momoh, prosecutors stated at the time. Mitchell-Momoh survived the attack. Elsa Segura, 29, of Fridley, and Lyndon Wiggins, 36, were indicted Thursday by a Hennepin County Grand Jury on four counts of aiding and abetting the crimes of first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, kidnapping and first-degree felony murder while committing kidnapping. Wiggins’ attorney, Joseph Friedberg, declined to comment Friday on the indictment. Segura’s attorney, Amanda Montgomery, did not immediately return a message for comment. Two other co-defendants, Cedric Berry, of Minneapolis, and Berry Davis, of Brooklyn Park, were indicted in February 2020 by a Hennepin County Grand Jury on the same charges. Prosecutors said Monique Baugh, 28, was lured to a phony home showing in the Minneapolis suburb of Maple Grove, kidnapped and found shot to death in a Minneapolis alley on New Year’s Eve. Police believe that Mitchell-Momoh was the intended victim in a dispute over a record deal with a fellow rapper. Before his girlfriend was shot, he was shot at a separate location, a house, where two young children were present. Mitchell-Momoh told detectives he believed that he was targeted either because he had been flaunting “a lot of money” on his social media accounts or that people suspected him of cooperating with police, according to court filings. “I cannot begin to describe how vicious the behavior was in this case,” Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said in a statement last year. “We have charged Mr. Berry with setting a trap for Ms. Baugh, assassinating her at close range, and shooting at her boyfriend while in the same house with two small children.” A jury trial for Berry and Davis is scheduled to begin Monday. Berry has an extensive rap sheet stretching back 20 years. He was convicted of manslaughter in 2002 and has a slew of past narcotics convictions. Baugh, known for flipping homes in Minneapolis’ suburbs, is remembered as being a loving mom and a hardworking realtor. “Our entire team is devastated by Monique’s death,” Kris Lindahl, Baugh’s employer, told Oxygen.com last year. “We are grateful for the outpouring of support from the community and are focusing on remembering what an amazing person Monique was and helping her children.” The Associated press contributed to this report.
kali9A suspect is in custody after a 4-year-old boy was found slain in the middle of a Dallas street early Saturday with “multiple wounds” from what police believe was some kind of edged weapon. The Dallas Police Department confirmed the arrest of an adult male late Saturday, but stopped short of identifying the suspect and gave no further details on the brutal killing of the tot. The boy was found lying in a road in the 7500 block of Saddleridge Drive shortly before 7 a.m., Executive Assistant Chief Albert Martinez told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth. Martinez said the circumstances surrounding the boy’s death were “unusual” and that an “edged weapon” was thought to have been used.“Unfortunately a small child was lost today in our city through a violent act and we will pursue justice to find whoever did this and bring some sort of closure, not only to family but to the community,” Martinez said.“We are shocked, we are very angry about what has happened to this small child,” he said.Police say the toddler, who is believed to have lived in the area, was likely killed at around 5 a.m.A neighborhood resident told local media she had gone on a morning walk just after 6:30 a.m. when she stumbled upon the grisly scene, at first mistaking the slain child in the street for a dog.As she got closer, she said, she noticed the boy had no shoes or shirt on.“That’s when I noticed the baby had ants at the bottom of his feet so I knew he was deceased then,” Square told the Dallas Morning News. “It was heart-wrenching because this baby could have been no more than 5.”“I’m a little traumatized,” Square said separately to WFAA. “I’m a little afraid, I don’t know what happened to him. To see that, to walk up on it… I don’t feel safe at all.”Another resident, Lila Gilbert, told the Dallas Morning News police had come to her home asking if her family was missing a young child. Gilbert said she then went outside to see a body in the road covered by a blanket, but when the blanket at one point slipped off, she saw what looked like bite marks on the child's face. “It’s so shocking to me that it’s a 4-year-old, someone’s baby. That could’ve been my little cousin or brother or something,” Gilbert was quoted saying. “It’s just the point that he’s gone now. It’s just terrifying.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day. Sign up now!Daily Beast Membership: Beast Inside goes deeper on the stories that matter to you.
