ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) – Exactly one year after three people were shot and killed in rural Roswell police still have made no arrests.
The Roswell Daily News reports that Monday is the anniversary of the killing of 31-year-old Mere Contreras, 19-year-old Damon B. Oswald-Newman and 25-year-old Shelly L. Bird, all of whom were found dead in a Roswell home. A 24-year-old woman was also shot but she survived her injuries.
A family member of one of the victims has said that Oswald-Newman was shot in cold blood while he slept.
Roswell Police Department spokesman Todd Wildermuth says the investigation into the homicide is ongoing and that police are working to seek justice for the victims.
