The New Mexico teen accused of killing his parents and three siblings is portrayed in charging documents as a teen haunted by homicidal and suicidal thoughts that included fantasies of killing his girlfriend’s parents and gunning down random people at a Wal-Mart.

To his family, he was a bright, curious and talented musician who played in the church choir. He also was a champion wrestler who dreamed of following his family’s long tradition of military service, and a boy who accompanied his pastor father on rescue missions to Mexico.

In a statement issued Tuesday night on behalf of family, the boy’s uncle Eric Griego described those traits, and called on the media and the public not to use 15-year-old Nehemiah Griego “as a pawn for ratings or to score political points.”

“He is a troubled young man who made a terrible decision that will haunt him and his family forever,” the statement said.

NY GUNMAN:” KILLING IS WHAT I DO BEST”

The gunman who shot dead two firefighters in upstate New York, left a note saying “Killing is what I do best.”

In the note William Spengler, 62, also said he wanted to burn down his neighbourhood, and kill as many people as possible.

The charred remains of a woman were found in the burned out house, she is believed to be his sister.

Spengler used a Bushmaster semi-automatic rifle, the same used by Adam Lanza in the Sandy Hook Elementary school massacre.

Spengler, convicted of the manslaughter of his grandmother in 1981, was found dead of a self-inflicted gun shot wound hours after the killing of the fire fighters.
