A man confessed to shooting and killing a 4-year-old girl while arguing with her father on an Albuquerque freeway, police said, without offering more details on what led to the apparent road rage.
Tony Torrez, 32, was arrested Wednesday and admitted to shooting Lilly Garcia while she was riding in the backseat of her father’s pickup truck with her 7-year-old brother a day earlier, police said. He has been charged with murder, assault, child abuse and other crimes.
The tweet’s text simply read, “Adios Amigos! #NEDMEX.” That was accompanied by an image of a “departures” sign that had an image of a man with a large mustache, wearing a sombrero and a bandana around his neck.
According to one observer, the tweet was up for only 25 minutes before KLM deleted it.
A good many people who saw the tweet while it was visible were incensed. Actor Gabriel Garcia Bernal, who has about 2 million followers tweeted, then deleted, a post that threatened never to fly KLM again, followed by, “F**k you big time.”
Others offered similar sentiments:
For a trip this summer I had the option of flying @klm or lufthansa. I was undecided. I took the “Adiós Amigos” to heart. Flying Lufthansa.
