FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - A lawmaker wants the state Attorney General’s Office to look into a Farmington apartment complex where a resident’s death went unnoticed for weeks.

The Daily Times in Farmington reported (https://bit.ly/1ZMu8Oa) Saturday that U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Lujan’s office has asked Attorney General Hector Balderas to review the death at Apple Ridge Apartments.

Balderas spokesman James Hallinan says their office has not gotten a formal letter from Lujan.

Farmington police say the body of 64-year-old John Hall was found Sept. 29 by a maintenance man.

Police say Hall was likely dead for about two weeks.



Some complex residents say they are upset no employees of management company Dunlap & Magee noticed.

Company spokeswoman Christine Shipley says the building is not an assisted living facility where management can track every resident daily.
