Community struggles with pilgrims’ deaths
WI PROMISI YOU
CHIMAYO, N.M. (AP) — During Christianity’s holiest week, this small rural community is struggling to come to grips with the deaths of two teen-agers killed while making a traditional Easter pilgrimage.
Richard Martinez and high school sweetheart Karen Castanon were among thousands of pilgrims making the spiritual trek to the Santuario de Chimayo when they were shot to death. They were both 17.
The killer “needs to know that they were doing God’s will,” said Lynette Duran, a classmate and friend of Karen. “I hope he can find compassion and give himself up.”
Martinez’s body was found before dawn on a highway about 30 miles north of Santa Fe. Hours

later, Castanon’s body was found nearby in a remote, hilly area.
“I feel it’s a terrible thing, the way it happened,” said Clotilde

Castanon, Karen’s grandmother. “They were wonderful kids. We loved her very much. Why did it have to be them?”
On Saturday, investigators continued combing the crime scenes, looking for evidence and suspects. About 15 miles away, an entourage of pilgrims of all ages flowed into the Santuario, a small Roman Catholic church believed to contain healing dirt.
An ensemble of brightly
adorned and feathered musicians replete with conch shells, drums and flutes, danced and chanted around a church altar.
“I prayed to the children that God called home,” said Lorraine Urioste of Santa Fe. “It’s a tragedy for two young people to lose their lives like that... coming to pray.”
Every year, tens of thousands of pilgrims make the journey, many of them hoping for miracles from dirt found in a hole in the church.A man committed to family values and a dedicated community leader

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Clinton and Vice President Al Gore were each interviewed for four hours this week in the government’s long-running investigation into alleged fund-raising abuses in the Democrats’ 1996 re-election campaign.
Gore’s spokesman said the vice president is not a target of the Justice Department Campaign Finance Task Force. A White House official said Clinton also is not a target of the investigation. The president was interviewed Friday, Gore on Tuesday.
“The president and the vice president cooperated fully with the task force and voluntarily agreed to be interviewed this week,” White House spokesman Joe Lockhart said in a statement.
Lockhart was asked whether the president sticks by his earlier assertions that he has done nothing wrong. “All of his statements still stand,” the spokesman replied.
Gore told reporters on his campaign plane returning to Washington from Michigan that he couldn’t discuss the substance of the task force interview.
“It’s a legal proceeding that customarily is protected from open discussion, lest it somehow interfere with the success and fairness of the undertaking. That’s just pretty traditional,” he said.Report: Federal agents didn’t fire
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Federal agents did not fire at Branch Davidians in the 1993 siege that ended in a deadly blaze at the
group’s compound in Waco, Texas, according to a preliminary report from last month’s simulation of the confrontation.
Vector Data Systems, the British firm that conducted the simulation, provided the written report to U.S. District Judge Walter S. Smith Jr. earlier this month.
The test was performed March 19 in Fort Hood, Texas.
Vector found that flashes produced by sunlight reflecting off debris were considerably longer in duration than flashes produced by gunfire, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Saturday, citing informed sources.
That finding would support the government’s claim that similar flashes seen on a 1993 infrared tape were the result of sunlight reflecting off debris from the crumbling complex, not gunfire.
