Cops question murder suspect at hospital

Ron Santiago questioned about his possible involvement with 2005 murders of Greg and Bernadette Ohlemacher

On June 14 2006, Detective Mike Fox and Secret Service Agent Brian Nguyen went to Presbyterian Kaseman Hospital in Albuquerque where suspect Ron Santiago, a mortgage loan processor, was undergoing psychological treatment.

Fox and Nguyen questioned Santiago for approximately two hours about his possible involvement with the murders of Greg and Bernadette Ohlemacher, who'd been gunned down in their home on August 2, 2005.

Santiago cooperated but then halted the questioning, asking for a lawyer.

Santiago's lawyers later said at his murder trial that he had been given several medications before the questioning. Prosecutors countered by saying that Fox and Nguyen had asked Santiago's doctor if they could question him and the doctor said there were no medical restrictions on him.
