  • Father’s lawsuit: Son’s death was foreseeable

    The Associated Press
    SANTA FE — A lawsuit filed against the Santa Fe County sheriff and a deputy says a 3-year-old boy’s death was foreseeable because the office received prior complaints against the boy’s mother and her boyfriend.
    The wrongful-death suit filed Friday by Andrew Valdez in the death of his son contends the sheriff’s office failed to investigate abuse reports against Tabetha Van Holtz and Steven Gallegos before the boy died.
    Van Holtz and Gallegos await trial on charges that they fatally beat Leland Valdez in 2011.
