ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Seven years ago today, a woman walking her dog on Albuquerque’s West Mesa stumbled across a human bone.
It was the first of many in what would become one of the largest crime scenes in American history.
By the end of the month, investigators had found the remains of 11 women and an unborn child in the dusty patch of land near 118th Street and Dennis Chavez.
It took authorities a year to identify them all.
Detectives quickly homed in on two men they thought may have been involved, Lorenzo Montoya and Joseph Blea, but there have been no arrests.
