ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Nehemiah Griego, 15, is the teen Bernalillo County Sheriff's detectives have charged with murdering his parents and three younger siblings in their Albuquerque home, shooting each victim multiple times.
But to neighbors, he was a consistent, if quiet presence in his South Valley neighborhood.
"He was fairly quiet, not real rowdy that we could tell," said neighbor Jerry Crites. "He seemed to be just a normal kid walking up and down the road."
A quiet kid with a distinctive look. Several neighbors tell News 13 that Nehemiah Griego always wore camouflage gear in his walks through the neighborhood. They also say they rarely saw him with friends his age unlike other kids.
Several sources also tell News 13 that Nehemiah Griego was homeschooled. APS confirmed that the 15-year old was not registered with the school district.
News 13 also found an online dating profile for Nehemiah Griego with a photo neighbors confirm show the teen. That photo shows Griego in military fatigues. A small child appears in the background.
"I'm a fun loving guy who [likes] to make [people] happy," wrote Griego on the profile. "I might be shy but I'll open up once you get to know me."
There are still many unanswered questions about Nehemiah Griego including where deputies believe he got the weapons used in the quintuple murder and what his motive may have been.
