West Mesa investigation eyes known perps

Albuquerque police said they are looking into several possible suspects who may be responsible for the bodies buried on the West Mesa.

As searchers discovered the 13th body Friday at the site near Dennis Chavez and 118th Street, investigators said they are still unwilling to say a serial killer is responsible.

However, police also say a single person may have disposed of all the bodies they've found on the mesa.

One person police are looking at could be Lorenzo Montoya, a man killed in 2006--the same time prostitutes stopped vanishing from the streets of the Duke City.

Even back then, police said Montoya could be responsible for multiple murders.

They've "used" Montoya's name before. I'm wondering if that isn't simply an easy "out" for them?

I still can't get over the fact that up to 24 women are missing and there's been no "big deal" made of it.

Montoya does sound like a likely suspect, but they need to prove who did it -- not guess.
