ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The City of Albuquerque and the Navajo Nation are creating a task force to help homeless Native Americans.

This stems from the gruesome beating deaths of two homeless Navajo men in Albuquerque two weeks ago.

The bodies of Allison Gorman and Kee Thompson were found near Central and 60th Street.

Three teenagers have been arrested and charged for the murders.

Now the city and Navajo Nation leaders a coming together to identify the factors that leads to homelessness within the Native American population.

The task force will also create partnerships to provide them with the resources they need and work toward getting them off the streets. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
