ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say the New Mexico teenager accused of fatally shooting his parents and three younger siblings had never been in trouble with the law.
A spokesman for the state child welfare agency had no contacts with 15-year-old Nehemiah Griego or his family.
A records check also indicated the teen had never been involved with the juvenile justice system before being charged over the weekend killing his five family members.
Among the victims was his father, Greg Griego, a pastor who once served at one of Albuquerque's largest Christian churches. He was also well-known for his spiritual work with firefighters and jail inmates.
Investigators continued processing evidence at the Griego home on Monday. They say there was no history of any emergency calls to the home in the recent past.
