The West Mesa Bone Collector Unsolved Case

Recommended Posts

Manwon Lender

Between 2003 and 2006, at least 19 girls and women disappeared on the streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Most of them were Latina sex workers in their 20s, and for years, no one knew what happened to them. Then in February 2009, a resident walking her dog in Albuquerque’s West Mesa area made a horrifying discovery: a bone resembling a human femur was sticking out of the ground. Investigators dug into the site on the West Mesa near 118th Street SW and discovered there wasn’t just one person buried there. Over the next year, the Albuquerque Police Department identified the bones of 11 girls and women who’d disappeared between 2003 and 2005. Their group burial suggested a serial killer, who was later named “The West Mesa Bone Collector,”   The West Mesa Murders: Is the West Mesa Bone Collector Serial Killer Still Roaming Free? - A&E (aetv.com)

His name was Lorenzo Montoya, and he was killed in 2006—by one of his intended victims. Was The West Mesa Bone Collector Killed by One of His Victims? – The 13th Floor
