    Albuquerque police said another Muslim man was murdered on Saturday following the murder of three others in New Mexico over the last year as the FBI investigates the possibility of a serial killer on the loose.  Albuquerque Police Chief Harold Medina said the murder of the latest victim, who was not yet identified, is believed to be related to the three fatal shooting that have taken place within a five-mile radius of each other in the last nine months.  The newest murder of a Muslim man, which coincided with another shooting in the area, happened just after midnight in the east side of the city near near San Mateo Boulevard and Copper Avenue NE.  'Our city suffered another tragic loss overnight.

    A fourth person, named only as a 'City of Hope patient, has been cured of HIV using a highly dangerous stem cell treatment reserved only for patients who are also battling leukemia. The unnamed 66 year old man was treated in the City of Hope National Medical Center in Duarte, California, earning him his nickname. He received a blood stem cell transplant in early 2019 and has not shown any evidence of HIV replication in his body since. He has now been off of HIV medication for 17 months.  The transplant is extremely dangerous and requires doctors to find a donor that has a rare genetic mutation that makes them resistant to the virus. Because of this, it is only reserved for HIV patients who are also suffering from late-stage cancer. Researchers are still hopeful that this success can have wider reaching impact, though, and help many other elderly HIV patients that are also suffering from a blood cancer at the same time. The 'City of Hope' patient, named for the California hospital he is receiving treatment at, has been...

Arnulfo Reyes revealed to NPR that he is second-cousins with schools police chief Pete Arredondo, who has been blasted for holding officers back for more than an hour as 18-year-old gunman Salvador Ramos locked himself inside the building with the students - killing 19 children and two teachers. Reyes, 45, said he does not understand why Arredondo refused to act, and revealed that his classroom's doorknob had been broken for at least two years - something he says Arredondo knew even though the police chief claimed he had to search for keys to enter the building. 'I wish he would have said, "I'm going in there because that's my family,"' Reyes said. 'But he didn't.' 'There's really no excuse for 77 minutes,' he added of the time it took for Border Patrol agents to enter the elementary school and confront Ramos, who they shot dead.  During that...
