ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — For years, Brian Lang had walked his dogs along the drainage ditch behind his house in Bernalillo.
So when he and a friend disappeared on March 1, sheriff’s deputies checked the ditch area. That’s where they found an ominous sign – Lang and his friend, Christopher Holland, had left clothing on the ditch bank. It looked like they’d jumped in.
After midnight, sheriff’s deputies found the men dead in the ice-cold water downstream near U.S. 550, the main road that runs through Bernalillo.
