  • Through 2009, police would continue to unearth a mass grave along the western edge of Albuquerque.

    Following the discovery of eleven female bodies, investigators set out to identify the remains. The first four victims - Victoria Chavez, Michelle Valdez, Cinnamon Elks, and Julie Nieto - would be identified within the first month or so. They were all young women that had lived in the region and had gone missing between 2004 and 2005 (who had prior histories of sex work and drug use).

    However, the remaining seven victims would be much harder to ID. It took several months for investigators to piece together the details of these women's tragic lives, but the exact circumstances of their disappearances/murders would be hard to grasp. Years later, police continue to have many questions about these women, and who had targeted them...

  • On February 2nd, 2009, a woman walking her dog would stumble upon the largest crime scene in Albuquerque history.

    In the years prior, this once-desolate corner of ABQ had been ground zero for rapid expansion. Housing developments had been popping up left and right, but the 2008 recession caused a vast amount of land to remain undeveloped: in particular, a roughly 100-acre lot located just west of 118th Street.

    While out on an evening stroll, a woman's dog would unearth a human bone. Before long, police had begun excavating what would be the largest crime scene in Albuquerque history. Within a month, they had identified four of the victims (all were sex workers that had gone missing years prior) but several more remained unidentified... as did their collective killer...

  • On February 3rd, 1980, the riot at the New Mexico State Pen carried on into its second full day. Negotiations continued, but with a handful of prison guards still captive, the inmates were holding most of the leverage.

    Eventually, a peace would be brokered and order would be restored to the penitentiary. The facility itself, though, was in total disarray, and the expensive cleanup effort that followed would prove costly (not only financially, but emotionally).

    In the months and years that followed, the story would continue to plague the region. After-effects of the riot would be felt for years to come, and many still question certain aspects of it...

  • In the early morning hours of February 2nd, 1980, a dozen inmates at New Mexico's State Penitentiary took four prison guards hostage. Within an hour, more than ten guards would be taken captive, and hundreds of inmates were freed from their cells.

    The facility, which had been made aware of the dangers in the months preceding the riot, had done little to prepare for it. The rioting inmates made easy work of the lax security protocols meant to keep them at-bay, and - within hours - had free rein of the entire prison.

    What would follow would be hours of bloodshed... the likes of which were nearly-unparalleled in American history. As prison officials and law enforcement struggled to gain control of the situation, they quickly learned that they had underestimated the unadulterated rage that had been festering for years...

  • Throughout the 20th century, the New Mexico State Penitentiary earned a reputation of being, ironically, a lawless place - where violent and non-violent prisoners were forced to co-exist in cramped and deplorable conditions.

    Violence was constant, and certain cell blocks were allowed to run rampant over others. To make matters even worse, the prison's revolving door of wardens through the 1970's kept implementing changes, but just ended up creating vacuums... which were only ever filled with apathy and disorder.

    This eventually reached a head in the final days of 1979, when rumors of a vicious uprising began spreading through the facility. Prison officials thought nothing of it at the time, but in the early morning hours of February 2nd, 1980... the powder keg could no longer be contained.
