KOB4 profiles the tragic killing of Nikki Bascom, a Silver City resident and mother of two who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, Silver City Police Captain Mark Contreras, who then killed himself.

Laura represents Ms. Bascom’s family in a lawsuit against the Silver City Police Department and the Grant County Sheriff’s Office. The family has alleged that the departments protected and emboldened Mr. Contreras as he stalked, threatened, and abused Ms. Bascom with impunity for weeks prior to the killing.
