    "The witness said the 12-year-old shot her first, with a .22 rifle, while she was trying to get in her car and leave. Then Heith Gleason shot her two more times with a different gun.

    Then according to the witness, somebody lit the victim's car on fire with her body inside in an attempt to destroy all evidence of their involvement. The two of them also tossed their clothes and guns inside the burning car."

    12-year-old involved with murder in Huerfano Co.: police

    I'm very sorry, when we had the old version of websleuths, I was able to insert quotes properly, but I don't see the buttons that I used to do that anymore.

    You are right... I also have a lot of words but my initial response was jaw-dropping muteness. A 12 y/o.

    Summary: a 3rd Party was present during the shootings and alerted police.
    Dad supposedly made comments supporting the son’s machismo by participating in the murder.
    Kid getting extradited to a youth detention facility.
    Awaiting further charges for the father.

    Suspect, 12, in homicide to face charge in Colordao


    A 12-year-old boy wanted in connection with a recent homicide in Gardner will be extradited to a youth detention facility in Colorado after an extradition hearing Monday in Santa Fe, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper

    The newspaper reported that Gage Gleason appeared before District Judge Sarah Singleton. He and his father, Heith Gleason, 35, were arrested on a warrant charging the boy with murder at a McDonald’s restaurant in Santa Fe on Dec. 21.
    [.....]
    Santa Fe District Attorney Marco Serna said the boy signed documents voluntarily agreeing to be returned to Colorado, where he faces a charge of first-degree murder, the newpaper reported.

    Heith Gleason is still in custody at the Santa Fe County jail, according to online records. It’s not clear what if any charges he will face in connection with the case.

    There are no polite words for this thread. Everything I can think of to write would get me banned. This below makes me sick

    He's only 12? I wonder if the kid has a history of anything else?

    Because if this is the ONLY incident then I might wonder if he was terrified of his Dad and did it on his instruction. Many boys of "macho" fathers are rightfully terrified what will happen if they don't do the "macho" things requested.

    I hate to just throw a 12 year old away without making sure he's a sociopath first. Just having a hard time imagining he would have committed this crime on his own. I'm guessing Dad was the mastermind and driving force.

    You’re probably, hopefully right. I usually wait to pass judgement, but this one got to me. Thanks for your compassionate post.

    I was afraid I missed something when I saw your post. I am very familiar with your compassionate stance.

    I could be wrong and the kid could be a budding serial killer. I hope it's definitive either way though.

    Thanks for understanding. After looking around online, I’ve changed my opinion and if I’ve zeroed in on the right people, I think this kid is more likely a victim of a macho dad. I still have some concerns about a FB page I think is the boy’s, if it is. But it’s wait and see at this point.
