Possible connection between two Albuquerque women’s cases

According this Albuquerque Journal article, the police are investigating a possible connection between the 1992 disappearance of Velda Leyba and the murder of Lisa Duncan, who disappeared five months after Velda and was found dead a few months later. Both of them were last seen in the same house, which was never searched, even though the police noticed blood on the carpet.

Well, they’re searching the house now. It’s twenty years after the fact, but the current owner says it’s still the same carpet. A confidential informant told the police that both Velda and Lisa were killed there.

Better late than never, I guess.
