Following the exhaustive search and ultimate discovery of the bodies of Mike and Tina Careccia, lots of people whistled past the graveyard, while talking about a "strong community." This would be laughable, if it weren't so pathetic. There are individuals and groups, who are strong, however, they are not in the majority. It would appear that Felix Rios Nunez witnessed a murder, didn't report it and went on with his sorry excuse for a life, while the entire neighborhood spent more than a week searching for the Careccia's.
I'm not surprised that kind of skulduggery goes down, when plenty of people shop at the Farmer's Convenience Store, while they support the cartel scouts coming into their store wearing camouflage, head to toe. Nor do they seem to have a problem with the melon pickers pissing in their parking lot, as long as six packs of malt liquor get sold. My point is people think a community is "sending prayers" and closing your eyes to criminal shenanigans, like the bicycle crew openly casing our homes. When you see something, DO something.
Felix Rios Nunez, a friend and housemate of Valenzuela, told investigators he was awakened by the sound of gunfire, according to court documents. Nunez said he saw a wounded Michael Careccia using a chair to try and get up and Valenzuela pointing a gun at Tina Careccia, who was on the floor. Nunez said he fled in fear after Valenzuela refused to give him the gun and pushed him. ABC15
