4) Who brought the "Baby Face" serial robber to justice?

ANSWERS

1) C. Padilla called police when they realized they found a body. The Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department does not know who the man is, but they're investigating the case as a homicide. The body was sent to the Office of the Medical Investigator to determine how the man died.

2) B. After two DWI cases successfully challenged the results of Breathalyzer tests, Albuquerque's district court is now flooded with DWI defendants appealing their cases. There are more than 150 appeals waiting to be heard in Albuquerque's district court.

3) D. The new baby blacktip sharks are believed to be the first ever born in captivity. The little guys probably wouldn't have survived if aquarium workers hadn't spotted them quickly and brought them to safety before they were eaten by other fish.

4) A. Carlos Lueras' mom told police she recognized her son from photos and billboards of the bank robber on television. Lueras is accused of robbing six New Mexico banks and making off with $11,400, according to court records.
