West Mesa murders: Up to $100K offered for information leading to an arrest
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — It has been 15 years since the bodies of 11 women and an unborn baby were discovered on Albuquerque’s West Mesa.
The search for whoever is responsible continues to this day.
Since the initial discovery on Feb. 2, 2009, APD says they have received 1,400 tips related to the case. Seven additional searches were also performed.
APD says potential suspects have been identified and numerous resources have been used to conduct background on them. The FBI performed a crime analysis in the early stages of the investigation and again in 2013, which included investigative suggestions that have been followed up on.
“We have put a tremendous amount of effort into solving this case over the last 15 years and we will not stop in the search for the individuals responsible,” said APD Chief Harold Medina. “I can only imagine what the loved ones of the victims have experienced all these years waiting for answers, but this case has never been forgotten, and I too, seek justice for all those impacted by these crimes.”
In addition to the remains found in 2009, eight women remain missing that investigators believe are connected to the case.
There is a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading to an arrest and successful prosecution in this case. APD, the FBI, and the victim’s families have contributed to the reward.
