Albuquerque plans memorial where women’s remains were found

Albuquerque officials say construction is set to begin soon on a memorial site where the remains of 11 women were found buried nearly a decade ago.

Mayor Tim Keller plans to attend the ceremonial groundbreaking for the Women’s Memorial Park on Saturday at 10 a.m. on the city’s West Mesa.

The city plans to construct the memorial where the victims, one of whom had been pregnant, were found buried in 2009.

In February of that year, a woman walking her dog discovered a large bone protruding from the dirt, leading police to excavate the area.

Victims’ relatives have long awaited the construction of a memorial dedicated to the women.

No one has been arrested in their deaths.
