During the early morning hours of July 1, 1987, an off duty officer spotted smoke coming from an area north of NM 147 River Bridge, east of the river. A vehicle found at this location was engulfed in flames. The fire department discovered the body of 28 year old Steven Anderson inside the trunk. He was last seen alive at 9:30 pm on June 30, 1987. Steven died of multiple stab wounds.


On June 13, 1986 at approximately 6:28 p.m., 23 year old Charles Montoya was found by first responders inside his vehicle at 2425 Isleta Boulevard SW. He complained of stomach pain, first responders located a stab wound in his lower abdomen. Charles was transported to a local hospital where he later died. It is believed that Charles may have gotten into a fight inside a local bar near where he was found.
