A sign at a convenience store in Rio Rancho is asking for donations to help bury a man who authorities say was shot while trying to break into a woman's house.

The printed flier hangs from the inside the window of a Giant convenience store on Southern Blvd. and Western Hills in Rio Rancho. It doesn't mention how 19-year-old Frank Castillo died; it simply asks for donations to help bury him. The sign points out he's the son of the manager at the gas station.

Deputies believe Castillo and another man tried to break into a home two Fridays ago near Paradise and Golf Course streets in northwest Albuquerque, when the woman who lived in the home shot Castillo. He died a few days later.

@dyslexia,
That's more than weird.
Taking aside that the thug is the manager's son, he died while committing a
crime. Why should others feel compassion and help bury him?

@CalamityJane,
I suspect that's why it's called compassion.

@ehBeth,
Yes, but there are many levels of compassion and it only goes so far.

@CalamityJane,
Maybe they could feel compassion for his father's loss and help a grieving father bury his dead son. Chances are the man has regular customers who might want to help the dad pay for a burial.

Doesn't seem that weird to me <shrug>

@dyslexia,
What would be so problematic about helping someone bury their child? Was the gas bar manager involved in the alleged crime?

People are harsh.

The media is behaving badly. They forced the manager (the dead boy's mother) to take down the request for help. They are indifferent to her grief. Very sad.

@Irishk,
How can the media force anyone to take a sign down?

@JPB,
Just my impression after watching the video.

Others may not agree.

@Irishk,
I was pleased to see that none of the three members of the public bashed her.

She took it down on her own, but that's fine. She can put it back up if she wants to too. Hopefully the extra coverage will bring in enough donations to bury her son.

a burial these days can run over 2,000.

I can not put a price on a mothers grief.

Who knows. That could have been my brother. Before he was actually physically caught, he was doing things like that. His schizophrenia was so bad he was cutting pieces of his skin off to get "the bugs". He was not himself. AT ALL.

He is now.

I would hope that if my family were faced with something like that while he was that far gone from reality, people would not throw it in MY face as if I was the one doing the crime and just help if they can.

We dont know everything. We dont know the boy.

Condemn the crime... sure..

but the mother?
why..
