THREAD: This week we were given rare access inside the NM compound where authorities think children were getting weapons training to carry out school shootings. This is part of the tunnel that extends out from the property. @NBCNews
This is video provided to us showing a side chamber where children were believed to have stayed - off to the right is a small escape opening.
This is the view from the end of the tunnel with a ladder leading up into the desert about 150 feet away from the compound
This is the view from above: the compound appears to have been an attempt at an “earthship” This is where 18 people were living with no access to running water or electricity in the New Mexico desert.
The innermost part of the compound is a buried RV. The stench is overwhelming. There are gun boxes, ammo and other signs of the several fire arms taken by authorities. 2 rooms. Hard to imagine small children in here.
Here’s a quick walk through of the compound and some context from our observations.
Absolutely heartbreaking: a target that appears to have been drawn by a child. Shot in the chest and head.
Just of the many items that were not seized, lock picking kit, finger print kit, bags of ammunition, training ammo, documents, notebooks, phones, a radio scannner. Investigators say they were constrained by language in the warrant and took what was in plain site.
