SOCORRO — Socorro police are investigating a possible murder suicide. They say just before noon on Monday, a man who called himself a "friend of the family" called City of Socorro police dispatchers and told them his friend, a 27-year old Socorro resident claimed he had murdered his 20-year old wife then allegedly dumped her body in Mexico. The man reportedly told his friend he was going to kill himself. After hours of an exhaustive search at their home on Aaker street, police investigators had enough evidence to confirm the details that the caller gave to dispatchers. Police say the man's car was found near Red Sands in Montana Vista with a dead body inside. The investigation is ongoing.
