ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – New Mexico State Police officers came across a car with two dead bodies inside. Back on May 7, State Police officers found the car on a pedestrian path below Carlisle and I-40.
Officials say the body of 39-year-old Thomas Crum was in the driver’s seat and the body of 28-year-old Lee Benson was in the back seat. Both were shot to death. Rescue crews arrived and pulled the two bodies from the car.
Crum was known to drive for G-Ride, a cash-based rideshare service. However, so far, it is unclear whether he was working at the time of the shooting, or why the men were shot. Both had criminal records.
