Aryan Brotherhood Implicated in Albuquerque Triple Homicide
All three victims and the suspect are reportedly members of the racist gang.
May 12 saw a triple homicide at Presbyterian Kaseman Hospital in northeastern Albuquerque.
The FBI and local investigators arrested Richard Kuykendall, aged 41, on Friday the 14th. He reportedly surrendered without incident. Kuykendall is reportedly the man caught on the video of the shooting below, courtesy of KOB TV. It is from one camera near the shooting on San Pedro.
Right now, Kuykendall is only being held on possession of a firearm by a felon as investigators keep gathering evidence on this case. His rap sheet, however, includes 35 arrests – many for domestic violence – in Massachusetts and New Mexico.
The criminal complaint has information from an FBI special agent who says it is believed all four men were members of the Aryan Brotherhood white supremacist prison gang after going through their prison records in a surgical manner. With Kuykendall, the special agent says they suspect his affiliation because of four of his tattoos.
