Hello Ms. Abousleman,


On January 10, 2018, we received your request to inspect the following records:

In accordance with the Inspection of Public Records Act (NMSA §14-2-1 through §14-2-12), I respectfully request that you send all records (including the incident report, supplemental narratives, and if applicable the summary investigation report) related to the response to, and investigation of:

  • The homicide death of Raymond Gutierrez (DOB 03/13/1982) by Christy Vasquez which occurred on or about 2/19/2015 at 8909 Cloudy Road NW, Albuquerque NM87120.
  • I also request any reports or written complaints related to calls for service and a list of all known calls at 8909 Cloudy Road NW, Albuquerque NM87120 between 02/19/2013 and 02/19/2015.


These records are exempt from disclosure under the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, NMSA 1978, Section 14-2-1(A)(4) (confidential law enforcement records) and (A)(8) (as otherwise provided by law). As the request was specifically made pursuant to IPRA, we cannot permit inspection because, if made public the requested records could seriously interfere with the effectiveness of a criminal investigation or prosecution. Additionally, if disclosed the records could alert potential defendants to destroy evidence, coordinate stories, or flee the jurisdiction. Further, incomplete investigations contain information that might unfairly cast suspicion on and invade the privacy of innocent people.


These records will no longer be exempt when the investigation is complete. My office will close out your request. Please let me know if you have any questions.
