The Albuquerque Journal reports that a search-warrant affidavit filed by police in the Albuquerque suburb of Rio Rancho also says the husband was a recent U.S. Army retiree who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder.
The affidavit says a handgun was found under Carlos Velasquez's body. His body was found face down across the legs of his wife. The older son was home on break from Stanford University
