Burned body in Sandoval County ID’d as Albuquerque woman

The charred body found west of Rio Rancho Saturday afternoon has been identified as 65-year-old Marilyn Rose Gandert of Albuquerque, according to an Albuquerque Police Department spokesman.

Officer Simon Drobik said Gandert was reported missing from Northwest Albuquerque on Sunday.

Sandoval County Deputies were called after a passerby found Gandert’s body Saturday south of Northern and Encino NW.

“The next of kin has been notified,” Drobik wrote in an email. “An active homicide investigation is underway.”

He did not say if there were any suspects.
