Man Found with Hands Nailed to a Tree, Suspects at Large

Victim Jose Duran

An Albuquerque, New Mexico city worker discovered the man, who was screaming for help.

“He kept yelling, ‘Help. Help,’ and so I came and I saw him and I kind of freaked out because I didn’t know if there was any other guys around,” the city worker told police.

An officer finally found Jose Duran nailed to a tree in a wooded area known as the Bosque, groaning in pain.  The officer immediately called for help.

“Hey, what happened man? Paramedics are on their way. OK?” one officer said.

Duran claims two men were sent to threaten and scare him after he was involved in an ugly real estate deal, which he says is all laid out in documents.

He took KRQE cameras to the spot where more than a dozen first responders worked for hours to free him.

No arrests have been made.

At the time, police said they didn’t suspect this was payback for a crime or that it was cartel-related.

An online court search shows Duran doesn’t have a criminal record, but he did have a long-running court battle over a real estate issue.
