A trio of Albuquerque, N.M. teenagers have been charged with two counts of murder each for brutally killing two homeless men. Worse, the group reportedly admitted two attacking upwards of 50 people in just a matter of months.
Authorities say that Alex Rios, Nathaniel Carillo, and Gilbert Tafoya—ages 18, 16, and 15, respectively—stand accused of bashing the sleeping men's heads in with cinder blocks. Albuquerque police spokesman Simon Drobik say the victims were bludgeoned so badly that they're "unrecognizable."
The Albuquerque Journal reports that Rios, Carillo, and Tafoya ventured out last Friday with the intent of assaulting innocent people because Tafoya's girlfriend broke up with him. According to police, they targeted a third victim who managed to flee and assist officers in identifying the assailants.
After discovering the bodies in an empty lot the following morning, police eventually found blood-stained clothes, a driver's license, and a debit card that might have belonged to a victim inside of the home where Carillo and Tafoya lived with their father. Though they're currently being detained at a juvenile detention center, they'll be tried as adults along with Rios.
