Earlier this week, a promising young man named Victor Villalpando was shot and killed on the streets of our city of Española. The investigation and key details of his death involving the police are still emerging as his shattered family and friends attempt to make sense of this tragic loss. What I do know is Victor was far more than a troubled youth with a gun.
A fair and justified investigation will provide only the first set of answers to this complex issue. His brilliant legacy and indelible gifts will forever fill our hearts and inspire the lives of the children he so lovingly nurtured.
