    SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) -A Santa Fe author says the search is finally over for his controversial hidden treasure. Forrest Fenn confirmed with KRQE News 13, someone has found the treasure he did more than 10 years ago. Forrest Fenn’s grandson told KRQE News 13 over the phone that his grandfather isn’t going to be saying much today. However, he did say it is true, the treasure is no longer up for grabs. This all started when Fenn published his memoir called “The Thrill of the Chase.” In the book, he gives clues to a treasure chest he hid in...

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A bronze chest filled with gold, jewels, and other valuables worth more than $1 million and hidden a decade ago somewhere in the Rocky Mountain wilderness has been found, according to a famed art and antiquities collector who created the treasure hunt. Forrest Fenn, 89, told the Santa Fe New Mexican on Sunday that a man who did not want his name released — but was from “back East” — located the chest a few days ago and the discovery was confirmed by a photograph the man sent him. “It was under a canopy of...

    Former CIA operative and New Mexico congressional candidate Valerie Plame, who continues to draw criticism for retweeting an anti-Semitic article in 2017, says she has joined a Jewish congregation. Plame, in a recent interview with an Israeli journalist, said she is a member of Temple Beth Shalom in Santa Fe, where she has lived for several years. In videotaped portions of the interview now posted online, Plame said she became interested in her family history after having her twin boys in 2000 and discovered that her great-grandfather was a rabbi in Ukraine. “I’ve always been drawn to that aspect of...

    SANTA FE – Lawsuit claims about young female sex slaves allegedly kept by billionaire investor Jeffrey Epstein and offered to a worldwide list of the rich and famous have reached New Mexico. In a new court filing in Florida, plaintiffs’ lawyers maintain that a woman identified as Jane Doe No. 3, said to have been coerced into Epstein’s camp when she was 15 years old, was frequently sexually abused by Epstein “not only in West Palm Beach (Fla.), but also in New York, New Mexico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, in international airspace on … Epstein’s private planes, and elsewhere.” Epstein...

The incoming Republican governor, Democratic legislative leaders, prosecutors, defense attorneys, victim advocacy groups and others have opposed the department's plan to relocate the lab.

    STANLEY — It was the early 1990s when longtime Santa Fe real estate agent Pat French was trying to find property in the area suitable for a billionaire financier from New York named Jeffrey Epstein. One day while Epstein was in Santa Fe, French was headed toward Colorado with her middle school-age daughter and one of her daughter’s friends. Before leaving town, she stopped at the tony Rancho Encantado resort, where Epstein was encamped. “When I went to the door where he was staying, it was filled with teenage girls,” French recalled this month, adding the politically connected tycoon had...

The problem with his story is that he wasn’t a teacher at the school and he was never a resident of Texas. There is no record of his...

    SANTA FE- A Catholic church in Santa Fe is causing a stir by raising a banner that calls for people to vote for pro-life candidates. "I do think this issue is that big,” Father Larry Brito said. Father Brito said he knows not everyone will support the “Vote Pro-Life” banner on the front of St. Anne Parish in Santa Fe. "If we feel passionate about this, we believe this, then we need to speak up. Even if somebody doesn't agree with us. We still have the obligation to speak up,” Brito said. However, neighbors who live across the street from...

    On Thursday, four journalists and one staff member of the Capital Gazette were murdered in the newspaper’s Annapolis, Maryland, office. While the event was initially widely covered by all major news outlets, the media is likely to quickly move on from the story, just like it did with the Santa Fe High School shooting, because it doesn’t fit the right narrative. (Unlike many of the Parkland students, the Santa Fe students didn’t respond to the tragedy by calling for gun control measures.) That in itself is a shame, not just because there is much to learn from this tragedy, but...

    The father of the 17-year-old charged with killing 10 people at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas, said Monday that his son was a “good boy” and had been “mistreated at school.” Antonios Pagourtzis said in a brief phone interview with The Wall Street Journal that his son Dimitrios was bullied and “I believe that’s what was behind” the shooting. Dimitrios Pagourtzis is being held without bond at the Galveston County Jail after he allegedly burst into an art classroom Friday morning at Santa Fe High School armed with a shotgun and pistol and opened fire, before surrendering to...

    Survivors of the February Parkland, Fla., high school shooting raged at the NRA and Republican Party for opposing tougher gun controls following the latest mass shooting Friday — while politicians predictably offered “thoughts and prayers.” “Donald Trump does not care about school shootings,” tweeted Cameron Kasky, a co-founder of the advocacy group Never Again MSD and a survivor of the Valentine’s Day slaughter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida. “Donald Trump does nothing to stop school shootings. Don’t talk to me about the ‘stop school violence act,’ because that does nothing to stop school shootings. “Donald Trump does...

    When the shooter left the room briefly, Abel and others left the closet and tried to barricade the door. But the shooter pushed it open, spotted a student he knew, and with anger said, "Surprise!" before shooting the student in the chest. "I'm still trying to process everything," Abel said in an interview. One of Pagourtzis' classmates who died in the attack, Shana Fisher, "had 4 months of problems from this boy," her mother, Sadie Rodriguez, wrote in a private message to the Los Angeles Times on Facebook. "He kept making advances on her and she repeatedly told him no."...

    Incoming National Rifle Association President Oliver North says school shootings are the product of a “culture of violence,” not the Second Amendment. “The problem that we’ve got is we’re trying like the dickens to treat the symptom without treating the disease,” Mr. North said on “Fox News Sunday.” “And the disease in this case isn’t the Second Amendment. The disease is youngsters who are steeped in a culture of violence.” He said everything from violence on television to Ritalin, a drug used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, may be contributing to the problem. “Nearly all of these perpetrators are...

    Jimmy Kimmel on Friday opened his ABC show by addressing the latest school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas, which left 10 dead and 10 others wounded. But unlike his previous monologues that addressed the Las Vegas and Parkland massacres, the late-night host eschewed sadness for anger as he berated the “cowardly” politicans who continue to sit idly by and do nothing. “Before we get to our guests and jokes tonight, I want to take a moment because, as you know, we had another school shooting today,” Kimmel began. “And once again, most of our leaders are sending their thoughts and...
