Borderland Crimes, Podcast 9: ‘We don’t know who can have that kind of hate’ – Family torn apart after son murders mom

EL PASO, Texas -- Gloria Marmolejo, a 54-year-old mom and grandmother, was found dead in the southern New Mexico desert in the summer of 2009. Her family pleaded for the community’s help to find whoever murdered her. But El Paso police investigators believed her son, David, killed his mother. And they learned he was hiding other secrets big enough to destroy his family.
