In 2009, a woman walking her dog found a human bone in the desert of New Mexico. That led police to find one of the largest crime scenes in American history.

In total, there were 11 victims, and many were reported missing years earlier. The women had ties to drugs and prostitution, according to the Albuquerque Journal.

The victims became known as the “West Mesa Murders,” and their killer has yet to be caught.

The crime scene was a mass burial site in a 100-acre patch of desert, according to the Journal. Police teams worked around the clock to find all the victims, though it took years to identify them all.

Between 1996 and 2010, at least 10 women were killed on Long Island and their remains were found along the south shore.

As FrontPageDetectives previously reported, they became known as the victims of the Gilgo Beach Killer or the Craigslist Ripper. Many of the victims worked in the sex trade and advertised on Craigslist.

The unknown killer used strangulation and dismemberment to kill his victims.

While the victims were killed during a 20-year span, the first remains were not found until December 2010.

There have been numerous suspects in the case, but police named a suspect they believe is responsible for all the murders on July 14, 2023.
