Desiree Schiffli, 18, was killed in her Los Lunas apartment complex last Wednesday.

A New Mexico State Police dive team is searching the Rio Grande for evidence in the murder of an 18-year-old Los Lunas woman, Desiree Schiffli.

Capt. Michael Hall of the Valencia County Sheriff's Office said several agencies responded the scene around 12 p.m. in the area where Main Street goes over the river.

The suspect, 19-year-old Joseph Bibiano, told KOB Eyewitness News 4 that the shooting was "an accident" during his arrest last week.

Police say Bibiano shot and killed Schiffli last Wednesday night during an argument.
