Police arrested a man in his father’s death at a mobile home park on Tuesday, and detectives identified three people killed in separate incidents across Albuquerque.

Lt. Ray Del Greco, with the Albuquerque Police Department, said officers responded around 9:45 a.m. to the 10200 block of Central SW, near 98th, and found Abelito Rivera Sr., 70, dead outside the mobile home where he lived.

By Tuesday night police had arrested his son, Abelito Rivera Jr., 42, and charged him with an open count of murder in his father’s death. Police said Rivera Sr. had died from blunt force trauma.

Del Greco said there was an “extensive domestic violence history” at the mobile home where the men lived.

Gilbert Gallegos, an Albuquerque Police Department spokesman, released the names of three people killed this month across the city, including a teenage boy.

He said the deaths of Angel Soto-Gallardo, 16, Nathan Wasserman, 32, and Rene Castillo, 21, were being investigated as homicides.

The first was May 11, when police responded just after midnight to a shooting near Cardenas and Southern SE. Officers found Soto-Gallardo fatally shot and lying in the street.

Then, on May 15, officers responded to a shooting near Chico and General Patch NE and found Wassermen shot to death.

And on Friday, police were called around 2 p.m. to a shooting near Interstate 25 and Central. As they responded, Castillo showed up to the hospital with gunshot wounds and died soon after.
