ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - An Albuquerque man's bizarre conspiracy theory about Pete Domenici landed him behind bars.
Ryan Summers accused the former senator of playing a role in a mass murder and told him he was going to pay for it.
“He's not a neighbor you really want to live by,” Anthony Gonzalez, who lives near Summers, said.
Summers is currently behind bars for making threats to Domenici.
Summers is accused of placing a phone call to the Domenici Institute at New Mexico State University Monday. The annual Domenici Conference was held there on Wednesday and Thursday with the former senator attending.
The federal criminal complaint alleges Summers left a profanity-laced voicemail accusing Domenici of being involved in some sort of program that turned James Holmes into a mass murderer that would later open fire in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater.
Here's the FBI's transcript of that voicemail:
"So, I am figuring out now that Pete Domenici is involved. Domenici and some (inaudible) torture Holmes. You (expletive) people killed sixty. You (expletive) got Holmes to (expletive) murder people in the theater..."
In the complaint, Summers tells authorities that Domenici could've prevented the shootings.
The voicemail goes on to say "...I’m going to (expletive) make you pay. I’m going to make you and your friends and your family pay."
Back in Summers' Albuquerque neighborhood near the state fairgrounds, his neighbors say he always acted a little strange.
“He’s just always complaining, doing different, odd things like riding by on his bicycle laughing, looking into the house,” Gonzalez said.
And Gonzalez wasn't the only one who noticed this behavior.
KRQE News 13 talked to quite a few other neighbors with all saying they've had some very odd encounters with Summers from him yelling profanities at them to knocking on their doors in the middle of the night.
Now, neighbors are hoping Summers gets the help he needs.
“We need to pay closer attention to it,” Gonzalez said. “I think this individual needs to be screened a little bit.”
Summers also emailed and called a professor at NMSU saying he needed to get a message to Gov. Susana Martinez so she'd know about the plot and that he would die to prove it.
The FBI didn't have a hard time figuring out who made the threats, Summers used his own cell phone and email.
KRQE News 13 could only find one other arrest on Summers’ record, and that was for refusing to sign a traffic ticket.
He faces up to five years in federal prison if he's convicted of making these threats.
Some brazen thieves made off with a man's prized possession, and now the victim is hoping for some holiday justice. Little did the suspects' know, their entire crime was caught on camera.
