New Mexico man found nailed to tree by horrified city workers

Authorities in New Mexico are trying to figure out how a man ended up nailed to a tree in Albuquerque, but he's reportedly "not cooperating." KIRO News 7 reports that the incident took place on Monday morning, to the bewilderment of those who discovered the man.

Authorities say that city workers, who were doing cleanup around a walking trail, were alerted to the sounds of a screaming man. When the followed the sound, they discovered a truly shocking situation. City workers say they discovered a man who had been nailed to a tree by his hands -- in an apparent mock-up of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

The man is not currently being identified in any news reports, nor are any details being shared that may clarify what actually happened. However, the most recent reports surrounding this case declare that detectives are "looking for suspects," in association with Monday morning's incident. So if someone did this to the man, why wouldn't he cooperate? Fortunately, the man is expected to survive, but there are just so many questions remaining.

Hopefully more answers come out soon in this bizarre case.
