New Mexican involved in high-profile case to be featured in true crime program

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – NBC’s popular “Law and Order” is about to make a shift, from “stories ripped from the headlines” to true crime.
It begins this week with the most in-depth look at the Menendez brothers’ murder trials ever to air on prime time. One of the jurors in that case calls New Mexico home.
“I didn’t talk about it for 20 years and now I can’t shut up about it,” Hazel Thornton said.
Thornton moved to the Land of Enchantment 12 years ago, and never told her neighbors or friends about her role in the historic case now being spotlighted by NBC. But she will soon be known to viewers nationwide as Juror Hazel in “Law and Order.”
And, she says, there’s an untold story waiting to be revealed.
