CBS 5 News has obtained exclusive video of a stabbing that has left one man dead.
Surveillance video from a neighbor's home captures the moment 31-year-old Clifton Daily is stabbed in the neck Monday afternoon around 4:30. Police say 42-year-old Garey Morrison is the suspect. According to court documents, the two knew each other and had been in an argument. However, it's what happens following the stabbing that is just as disturbing.
In the video, more than a half dozen people are seen leaving the home as Daily lays bleeding in the driveway. He struggles to stand up, and eventually collapses against a green car. Eventually, police are called. EMT first responders arrive and Daily is rushed to the hospital, where he later dies.
"It's unbelievable," said criminal defense attorney Mike Black as he watched the video.
"They may have been able to save his life. I literally have never seen this in my life before," he continued.
Black says as shocking as the video is to watch, those that left the scene - some even walking over the dying man - likely won't face any criminal penalty.
"There is no obligation for them to stop and help. Not at all. It might be immoral, which it is. Unethical: clearly, but there is no legal obligation for them to stop," said Black.
"I have seen a lot of things, and this is by far the most pathetic display of humankind I have ever seen," he continued.
The victim's mother agrees. CBS 5 spoke with Sharon Daily as she returned home to New Mexico. She said she is taking comfort in the fact her son's alleged killer is behind bars.
"I want to see the worst happen to this Garey Morrison. In my eyes it's an eye for an eye," she said.
Morrison has been charged with second-degree murder. According to police records, he claims he blacked out during the stabbing, and does not remember what happened.
Daily leaves behind two young children.
