The West Mesa Murders
In 2009, the bodies of eleven women were unearthed in an area of Albuquerque, New Mexico, called the West Mesa. Many of the women were identified as missing persons who had been on the radar of police for many years. Detective Ida Lopez had long suspected that many of the women on her missing person's list would be found together, and she turned out to be correct. Many have theorized that a lone serial killer, who has been dubbed "The West Mesa Bone Collector", is responsible for this series of murders.
Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the West Mesa murders and the person many believe to be responsible, "The West Mesa Bone Collector," In addition to being buried in the same location, these women had many things in common. Is one person responsible for this series of murders, preying on women in the middle of the night and then burying their bodies in one location? Or were there multiple killers operating over the years who happened to choose to bury the bodies of the victims in the same location?
