Authorities issue new search warrant in Nambe murder investigation

Abuse and torture suspects await hearing_782145

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE)— Wednesday, investigators were back at the Nambe home where a 13-year-old boy was murdered.

It’s the location, where investigators say Jeremiah Valencia was kept in a dog kennel for days without food and water, and where he was ultimately killed sometime last November.

Authorities were issued a new search warrant Wednesday, however, it is still unclear what they are looking for.

This comes after horrific details emerged Tuesday in the torture and eventual death of Jeremiah Valencia.

The boy’s mother, Tracy Pena, is the one who led investigators to her son’s body buried in a shallow grave near Nambe.

Pena, along with her boyfriend, Thomas Ferguson, and his 19-year-old son Jordan Nunez, are now charged with the murder.

Deputies say Ferguson had been beating Jeremiah, who needed a cane to walk because his injuries became so severe.

In court Wednesday, the state filed a motion asking that all three suspects be held pending their trial.
