West Mesa Body Pit ////// 50  

West Mesa Body Pit ////// 50 

In 2009 a woman walking her dog discovered a human bone on the city of Albuquerque's West Mesa. It would take over 2 months for searchers to comb the nearly 100 acre patch of barren desert. They found the bodies of 11 women and a fetus. Police at times have said they have had as many as 20 suspects and as little as a handful. They have yet to name an "official suspect." Tonight in the garage we have beer oh yeah and we have suspects too and they are pretty official. So stop by for a chat with the Captain and Nic, cheers!

Joshua Guimond ////// 47 

November 9, 2002 Joshua Guimond was at a party with friends. Some time between the hours of 11 o'clock and midnight he left. Some thought maybe to use the restroom others said maybe he went home to his apartment across the St. John's University campus but we may never know. He should have returned to the party or had he left he would have walked about three minutes to his apartment but he was never seen again. Joshua's father spent countless hours searching for his son and most of that on the 2700 acres that is the St. John's University campus. Tonight we ask ourselves what happened to Joshua?
