EDGEWOOD, N.M. (KRQE) –The white pickup truck thought to be linked to the Edgewood murder investigation is not the vehicle in question.
Further inspection by New Mexico State Police has revealed that the vehicle found Wednesday was not involved in the crime.
State Police said they found a vehicle similar to the one connected to the murder of a gas station clerk in Edgewood.
Police say the robber somehow got into Michael Pelkey’s attendant booth Sunday afternoon.
Witnesses say Pelkey followed the robber outside where there was a confrontation and Pelkey was shot.
Details are limited as this is an ongoing investigation.
