More on Thursday from the Rio Arriba vehicular homicide saga playing out the past couple weeks in state district court regarding Juan de Dios Cordova.

Thursday, KOB Eyewitness News 4 learned the truck Cordova is suspected of driving, the single largest piece of evidence in the case, was destroyed in early September.

Here is the KOB article link (w/ video) followed by a link from Thursday’s Rio Grande Sun that has a good recap of the past couple weeks of the preliminary hearing and all the drama that goes with most criminal cases in Rio Arriba County:
