Curry County Commissioner questions jail incident

New Mexico - Questions are being raised over emails after a recent investigation at the Curry County jail.

The emails are among more than 200 documents released last week in response to a request by the Clovis News Journal.

The emails concern the June 27th jailhouse fight between Jaime Perez and Louis Guerra.

Emails show jail officials reported an investigation into the fight was complete by June 29th.

However, County Commissioner Robert Sandoval says the request for that investigation was not even made until the 29th.

Sandoval calls it a huge cover up and says the county will continue to investigate.
