More details emerge on Delgado’s alleged accomplices

ALBUQUEQRUE (KRQE) – KRQE News 13 is learning more about the two people charged with aiding Marcos Delgado, the suspected murderer who sparked a massive manhunt.

Police are also saying that while some friends urged him to give up, others told him to “go out in a blaze of glory”

It ended Tuesday with Delgado taking his own life.

KRQE News 13 has obtained the criminal complaints for Josephine Bailey and Rafael Reza, the two people who were in the SUV with Delgado before he killed himself.

On Friday, police say Delgado shot and killed Anna Vigil, his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child, outside an auto detail shop near Vassar and Candelaria.

They say he also shot and hurt three other women and a dog and that he hit Vigil’s boyfriend with his car before speeding off.

The complaint confirms Delgado’s car, a black charger, was caught on a witnesses’ dash cam speeding away from the auto shop.

For three days, Delgado evaded police, then late Monday, detectives followed up on a tip and spotted the SUV that Delgado was in near 12th and Candelaria.

Police say Delgado jumped out, fired a rifle at police and took off running. He later killed himself.

The two other people in that SUV – Reza and Bailey – have been charged with harboring and aiding a felon.

According to the criminal complaints, Reza told police Delgado showed up at Bailey’s home on Friday and told them he shot Vigil.

Reza said he rode around with Delgado in the SUV while Bailey was driving and that when Delgado saw police behind him, he said he was “going to shoot at police before the police could shoot him.”

Bailey told police Delgado had said he and Vigil were supposed to register their son for school, but a phone call with Vigil made him lose his temper because he could hear her new boyfriend in the background.

Bailey also told police Delgado didn’t know he had shot anyone besides Vigil until he saw it on the news.

The three other women who were shot are expected to be OK. Bailey has posted bail and Reza appeared before a judge Wednesday afternoon.

At his first appearance, Reza argued since he wasn’t driving Monday night, he wasn’t helping Delgado. According to a criminal complaint, Reza told police he had just met Delgado on Friday. A judge set is bond at $2,500 cash or surety.
