A summer of secrets

Following a particularly violent summer, the Las Vegas Police Department is investigating four homicides and one non-fatal shooting. To date, charges have been filed in just one case.

Police have provided the public with very little information on these incidents, and have denied three open records requests made by the Optic under New Mexico’s Inspection of Public Records Act, or IPRA.
