Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham released the following statement after the arrests of three men suspected in the murder of 11-year-old Froylan Villegas:
“Thank you to every officer, investigator, and detective involved in this case. The hard work of the Albuquerque Police Department, New Mexico State Police, and federal law enforcement partners made apprehending these men possible.
“I join my fellow New Mexicans in continuing to mourn the senseless loss of another young life from gun violence. These tragedies are becoming all too common in New Mexico, and I will not rest until we’ve used all the tools at our disposal, at every level of government, to prevent something like this from ever happening again.”
