  • Families become official during National Adoption Day eventFamilies become official during National Adoption Day event

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – It is a day many children wait for, sometimes for quite a while. The day they officially become the newest member of a family. However, they don’t need a piece of paper to feel like they belong. “There’s no looking back. It’s not something we planned but you know what…” trailed Helen Magallon as she became emotional. Sometimes there are just no words to describe the feeling. “It’s just been awesome,” her husband, Semitro Magallon said. “Today quite frankly is the most joyous day I have all year long,” explained Judge Marie Ward, Children’s Court Division. “It’s really amazing.” Saturday was National Adoption Day at Children’s Court in Bernalillo County when families grow legally, giving peace of mind to families knowing they’re now unbreakable. “There’s no way we could image our lives without our children,” Helen Magallon said. For Kaley and Victoria Johnson-Gonzales it’s a day their relatives couldn’t miss, more than 30 of them. “She was three months, she was perfect,” they said. “She’s always been a part of our family.” Saturday, 3-year-old Adelina Marie, became their daughter. The moment brought tears of joy signifying the start of a new chapter. “We’re blessed,” Kaley said. “There are so many wonderful children in our state and they all need homes and they all need a family.” “If this is something for you really consider, pray about it because a lot of kids need homes, they need love,” Semirto Magallon said. 27 children were legally adopted during Saturday morning’s National Adoption Day event that took place in Albuquerque ———— Send a Breaking News Tip Report an error or typo Learn about the KRQE apps  Filed under: Albuquerque - Metro, Home, News, SmartTV, Top Stories, Top Video

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – An Albuquerque man is facing 13 counts of rape after police say he sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl on multiple occasions. He is also charged with kidnapping her for two days. Oliver Delgadillo-Vasquez was arrested on Friday. According to a criminal complaint, the allegations stem back to more than a year, with the latest incident just last month when Delgadillo-Vasquez showed up at the 13-year-old’s home and punched her. The girl’s mom intervened and he drove away. In an interview with the girl days later, she told detectives she first learned of Delgadillo-Vasquez through Facebook, then met him in person while walking around her neighborhood when she was 12. After that, she says he routinely dragged her into his truck while she was out walking, and raped her at multiple locations. The teen also says at one point, he kidnapped her for two days. She escaped when her aunt showed up to Delgadillo-Vasquez’s home. In court on Saturday, the state filed a motion to keep him locked up until trial. The teen also says Delgadillo-Vasquez often beat her, including during the alleged two-day kidnapping. The girl’s mother told police she was unaware of the kidnapping until charges were brought. It’s unclear why. Online court records show Delgadillo-Vasquez has been charged with one other violent crime in recent years. The 2015 battery charge was for punching a security guard after the two got into a fender bender. ———— Send a Breaking News Tip Report an error or typo Learn about the KRQE appsFiled under: Albuquerque - Metro, Crime, Home, News, SmartTV, Top Video

    The first freeze of Fall is ahead for Albuquerque and it will be the coldest night for most of New Mexico. The clear skies, dry conditions and colder air mass will allow temperatures to finally drop below freezing in Albuquerque tonight and into Sunday morning. This will be Albuquerque’s 3rd latest freeze on record with the latest on record of the Fall season still standing at November 22nd set in 2007. Other spots across northern New Mexico will be feeling temperatures in the single digits and teens including places like Farmington, Gallup and Grants along with some mountain communities. Temperatures will stay cool tomorrow afternoon before warmer weather returns for Thanksgiving week. High temperatures this week will be 5°-10° warmer than average heading into Thanksgiving on Thursday. The good news is that travel for the holiday in New Mexico and around the Southwest looks pretty quiet as the weather stays mild and dry into next weekend.Filed under: Albuquerque - Metro, News, SmartTV, Top Video, Video Forecast, Weather

  • City takes steps to demolish ’40-year’ nuisance propertyCity takes steps to demolish ’40-year’ nuisance property

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Neighbors call it an “eyesore” that’s attracted criminals and drug users for decades. Now, the city is finally taking steps to get the westside home demolished. “Very good. We had seen (City Councilor) Ken Sanchez and told him and he said he was going to get it done so now we’re very happy,” said Eluid Archuleta, who lives near 557 Dolores Drive NW. Archuleta grew up on the street and says the property has been a problem the entire time. “At least 40 years, since 1970 when we got here,” said Archuleta. Albuquerque City Councilor Ken Sanchez represents this district. At Monday’s city council meeting, he’ll introduce a resolution which begins the abatement of the property. Councilor Sanchez could not be reached. His policy analyst, Elaine Romero, says the property is not only a nuisance because of the trouble it attracts, but also because no one ever finished building it, meaning it’s structurally unsafe. The resolution gives the homeowner, who lives out of state, 10 days to “commence removal,” once he receives a copy of the resolution. If the homeowner does not respond within the 10 days, the city will put a lien on the property and take it over. If the city demolishes the property, it will cost $22,000. Romero says this process will likely take four to six months. Neighbors say they don’t care who ends up knocking down the house. They’re just happy it’s on its way out. “Now that it’s gone, or going to be gone, I think that the neighborhood would be a lot safer,” said Daniel Archuleta. ———— Send a Breaking News Tip Report an error or typo Learn about the KRQE apps  Filed under: Albuquerque - Metro, Home, News, SmartTV, Top Stories, Top Video

  • New Mexico homes featured in Hollywood hitsNew Mexico homes featured in Hollywood hits

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The film industry is big business in New Mexico, and local residents are trying to get in on the act by renting out their property to filmmakers. Most often, though, film crews say it happens by chance. Someone will unexpectedly knock on your door if they suspect your home fits the script. In Corrales, it started with a note on the front gate. A film crew interested in a home to shoot a dinner scene three years ago wanted to turn New Mexico into Mexico. (Photo Courtesy: Lynn Mosher) “Our house was supposed to be in Nogales,” said homeowner Lynn Mosher. She said, at first, she wasn’t sure about it. It would mean dozens of people at her house, and equipment all over the neighborhood. “We just moved in to the house too, and were like, I don’t know if that’s a good idea,” Mosher said. Filmmakers usually discover houses like Mosher’s that fit right into the storyline of their scripts through location scouts, like Cyndy McCrossen. “It’s kind of a needle in a haystack, finding the particular spot that would work for a show,” McCrossen said. She’s worked on hits like “Breaking Bad,” “Better Call Saul” and “In Plain Sight.” “I cold call. I knock on doors. I leave little notes for people to find,” she said. Because McCrossen grew up in Albuquerque, she said she thinks about places she’s familiar with, places with distinct characteristics. When a production finds a house, they usually pay to use the space. “I mean, I’ve seen as low as $500 a day to several thousand dollars a day,” McCrossen said. She said commercials or independent, smaller projects will be on the lower-end, while big blockbuster movies could pay closer to $4,000 a day. Plus, they’ll put you up in a hotel during the shoot. The excitement and the money have people trying to increase their chances of getting noticed. “Welcome to Casa de Siesta. This is my little vacation rental,” Richard Aragon said. He listed his downtown property as a potential filming location on the New Mexico Film Office’s website. Aragon said he’s done some work as a background actor and heard about the site from a friend in the film industry. “I don’t think a lot of people know about it,” Aragon said. The database shows pictures and addresses of more than 6,000 locations throughout the state. It has homes, businesses and even cars. “I haven’t heard anything yet to be honest with you. I’m still hoping that someone will give us a call,” Aragon said. Click here to learn how to list your property on the website. “T@gged,” a popular, murder-mystery web series that follows teens tagged in a disturbing online video, films all over Albuquerque. KRQE News 13 went to see the crew in action while they filmed at a home in northeast Albuquerque for the series’ third season. “What the house really had were these great wood built-in pieces,” line producer Melanie Kirk said. Otherwise, she said, the T@gged crew had to bring in everything to tailor it to their script. “All the furniture, pictures, everything,” Kirk said. Lynn Mosher’s house in Corrales was full of equipment when she agreed in August 2014 to let the movie crew move in. (Photo Courtesy: Lynn Mosher) “They changed every single light bulb in this house,” she said. All for the movie, “Sicario,” starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro. “This hallway, they ended up filming down here and Benicio came out of this area and shot a man right there,” Mosher said as she walked through her home. Because his scene was at her house, she did get to meet him briefly and even got an autograph. Mosher learned what she initially thought would be a quick dinner scene was actually one of the most tense turning points at the end of the movie. She said the crew was at her house for 2.5 weeks and then she had to wait about a year until she could see it on the big screen. “Oh, we couldn’t wait to see it. We just couldn’t wait.” She said the crew paid the homeowners association and neighbors to use their property and change the lighting, and they invited neighbors to eat from the food provided for the cast and crew. “We had a fulltime coffee lady out in front. 24-hours a day, fulltime EMT,” she said. Mosher said the crew made note of a few nicks on the wall and a crack in the tile, and they made sure it was fixed. “So, it was a very good experience for us. It was a long two-and-a-half-weeks, not going to lie, but it was a lot of fun.” Fun to see Hollywood at work right in our own backyard here in New Mexico. Because it can be an inconvenience to open your home up like that, Mosher said she waited three years before doing it again. The last time was in August for the third episode of the television series, “The Brave.” Of course, you also run the risk of a movie or TV show becoming a hit and attracting unwanted attention to your home, like Walter White’s house in “Breaking Bad.” The homeowner there recently put up a fence around her house after having problems with people trespassing and throwing pizzas on her roof like Walter White does in a “Breaking Bad” scene. “That’s a very rare thing. I think it’s unusual to be on a trolley tour,” location scout McCrossen said. “It does happen and nobody can predict it.”Filed under: Albuquerque - Metro, Home, Investigations, News, SmartTV, Special Assignment, Top Stories, Top Video Tagged: New Mexico Film

  • UNM draws students near and far with new marketing pushUNM draws students near and far with new marketing push

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The University of New Mexico is spending $500,000 a year on a new advertising and marketing campaign. In the last two years, UNM has embarked on a journey to market the university in a bigger and better way. “What we were finding was that year after year, people throughout the state knew that UNM was a good school but when asked why, they couldn’t really go much deeper,” said Cinnamon Blair with Marketing and Communications for UNM. The state’s flagship university is working to highlight its nationally ranked programs, but also the culture, and adventure that makes New Mexico special. “We wanted to tie in the entire New Mexico experience.” said Blair. They’ve since created Lobo Life, featuring student excursions across the state, to social media ads, bus wraps, and billboards. In just a year, their main site has had nearly 200,000 visitors. “The majority of those are from out of state from what our analytics show us,” said Blair. In the last five years, UNM has seen out-of-state students increase by 25 percent. “The east coast versus the southwest is like night and day, and I think that’s exactly what I wanted,” said Josh Lane, a student from New Jersey. Students also say the nationally ranked programs stand out in their search for the best school. “The program that stood out to me was the photography and how that’s one of the top programs,” said Seairra Sheppard, a student from Illinois. The school draws most of its out-of-state students from Dallas, Chicago, Denver and San Antonio. “They promote not only being artistic and sitting down and being creative, but they want you to go hike the mountains and explore and be active,” said Sheppard. The testimonials are proving the $500,000 investment is doing its job. ———— Send a Breaking News Tip Report an error or typo Learn about the KRQE appsFiled under: Albuquerque - Metro, Education, News, SmartTV, Top Stories, Top Video Tagged: UNM - University of New Mexico

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The New Mexico Attorney General says he’ll ask for the maximum sentence of 17 years for former state Sen. Phil Griego. “This is an individual who did not take responsibility from the very beginning and violated the public’s trust and operated within the shadows of power,” AG Hector Balderas said. Thursday, a jury convicted Griego on five charges including bribery and fraud. Griego pushed the 2014 sale of a state-owned building in Santa Fe, abusing his power in the Roundhouse to pocked $50,000 in commission. Balderas says the case was difficult to prosecute. “There was a lot of resistance as it relates to public record and a lot of resistance in terms of questioning the motives of prosecutors,” he said. A sentencing date will be set within 90 days. Griego’s attorney says he did nothing wrong and they plan to appeal. ———— Send a Breaking News Tip Report an error or typo Learn about the KRQE appsFiled under: Albuquerque - Metro, Home, News, SmartTV, Top Video

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A group of Albuquerque transplants are proving you can take the New Mexican out of New Mexico, but you can’t take the New Mexico out of the New Mexican. Six hours up I-25, things are pretty different in our neighboring state’s capital. It’s where a community of people who love their new home, but are nostalgic for their 505 roots, has blossomed. The smell of Hatch green chile, the comfort of the Zia symbol and the breathtaking sights of Balloon Fiesta — they’re things you may not cherish until you leave the Land of Enchantment. “I think food’s the big thing that everybody misses,” Erica Dang said. Dang, an Albuquerque native, moved to Denver at 25 years old. “I think New Mexico is a place that’s really rich in culture when it comes to food and language… a lot of things that New Mexicans connect on,” Dang said. “I ask people what culture is here, and they’re like, ‘It’s outdoor actives and snowboarding,’ and I’m like, ‘Those are things you do and not really like a culture.'” The move, for Dang, wasn’t shocking but it was still an adjustment. That’s why she and a friend created “505 in the 303.” It started as a fun Facebook page, but expanded to Instagram and has since grown to so much more than social media pages. It’s a whole transplant community. “We all come from different jobs, different backgrounds. People that didn’t know each other at all in New Mexico… when we have get-togethers we just already have a common bond,” she said. The Facebook page has everything from pictures and videos of the new-Denverites honoring their 505 roots, to suggestions of Denver-area restaurants serving up authentic New Mexican cuisine and jokes about Colorado green “chili.” Justin De La Rosa follows the ‘505 in the 303’ social media pages. He just recently moved back to Albuquerque from Denver after a more than three-year stay. “Anytime you run into people from Albuquerque, it’s a nice little taste of home and it has that feel like, OK, we know each other,” he explained. Dang will routinely host gatherings for the members of “505 in the 303,” like when the first Dion’s opened in the Denver area. The group also does an annual potluck and sometimes meets for Rockies baseball games. The group also has decals of its fused-flag logo for sale, which are printed at a Rio Rancho business. There’s a split love for both states when it comes to this group, though. They like Denver a lot, which is something some sedentary New Mexicans don’t take lightly. “When I would be back to visit for like Christmas or Thanksgiving, I’ll just be like, ‘Oh man, I just love Denver,’ and they’re like, ‘Oh, well, why do you come here? Why do you come back? If you don’t like Albuquerque don’t come here!’ I’m like, ‘Well, I didn’t say that,'” he said. Both De La Rosa and Dang say one state isn’t better than the other, they’re just different. “I always think of New Mexico as home,” Dang said. “Every place has its good and its bad. There’s nothing perfect about Denver and there’s nothing perfect about Albuquerque,” De La Rosa said. ———— Send a Breaking News Tip Report an error or typo Learn about the KRQE appsFiled under: Albuquerque - Metro, Home, News, SmartTV, Top Stories, Top Video

  • Large crack on busy Albuquerque bridge concerns driversLarge crack on busy Albuquerque bridge concerns drivers

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – It’s hard to miss, and it’s making some drivers in Albuquerque worried about their safety. It’s a large crack on the side of the Washington Street bridge over I-40. Everyday, hundreds of cars drive over the Washington Street bridge, over I-40. Recently, a crack along the side of the bridge is scaring some people who work nearby. “It’s definitely a little concerning. We’ve seen on the news in other states bridge collapses, and people didn’t even know that they were structurally damaged,” said Shane Roeseberg. “It’s a little precarious. It feels like the bridge is weaving a little bit,” said Mario Olguin. Roeseberg and Olguin have been working at Dr. Dan’s Computers for a combined 20 years. During their time at the shop, they’ve never had any issues driving over the Washington Street overpass, until recently. “You look at it and you go, uh that’s not really safe. I’m not sure if I want to be driving over that,” said Olguin. The overpass is relatively new. It opened back in 2007. Only 10 years later, it’s starting to show signs of wear, which seems to be a common trend in Albuquerque. Drivers might also remember a few years ago, the Department of Transportation made some big changes on another relatively new off ramp, at the Louisiana Interchange. It was cracking because it wasn’t built on firm ground. For the crack along the Washington overpass, DOT says it’s only cosmetic and doesn’t weaken the structure of the bridge. It’s a response that still doesn’t sit right with drivers. “It’s definitely a little concerning because it could be an underlying problem. It might not just be a cosmetic issue,” said Roeseberg. “Being the fact that it’s a highly traveled bridge, doesn’t give me much confidence in actually using it,” said Olguin. The DOT says a work order has been put in to repair the crack. It should be fixed in the next few weeks. Highway bridges and overpasses are made to last anywhere from 50 to 75 years, but problems can surface much earlier because of factors like weather and vibrations. ———— Send a Breaking News Tip Report an error or typo Learn about the KRQE appsFiled under: Albuquerque - Metro, Home, News, SmartTV, Top Stories, Top Video

The male complied, telling the officer that the knife was in the van. He also gave the officer permission to search the van. Upon searching the vehicle, the officer located a silver folding knife. The man said he pulled the knife, because he was annoyed that the groundskeepers were blowing dirt around his vehicle, and he was trying to rest.
