The West Mesa (New Mexico) murders

In other matters, the police in Albuquerque, New Mexico, are reaching out to the public once again for leads on the murders of 11 women whose bodies were discovered in the West Mesa area in 2010.
They had disappeared between 2003 and 2005 before their bodies were found. The strongest theories to explain the murders include a serial killer or gangs.
According to police, FBI profilers suspect a serial killer.
