Police interview shows why 17-year-old UNM student set up basketball player Mike Peake

17-Year-old girl admits to setting up NMSU student Mike Peake who shot dead another student for trying to jump him

According to police documents and a newly released New Mexico State Police interview, a 17-year-old UNM student played a key role in luring NMSU basketball player Mike Peake to the UNM campus on Nov. 19.

Although the 17-year-old student is being charged in this case, Action 7 News is not identifying her because of her age.

The teenager said, “It kind of sucks because I feel like I would’ve never called Michael here last night. Brandon would still be alive and you wouldn’t have this problem.”

During the police interview, she told police she first saw Peake in October at the UNM and NMSU rivalry football game in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

“So ever since then, we’ve been talking back and forth and we just like when he got down here, he said, of course, he wanted to have sex. Yeah, that’s what we’re going to do,” the teen said. Source
