Joplin Police Blotter: Search warrants served
August 05, 2010
Investigators with the Joplin Police Department served several search warrants in Joplin on August 3, 2010, along with investigators from the Albuquerque Police Department and agents with the FBI. These search warrants were obtained from leads/tips developed in the 118th Street/West Mesa Homicide investigation by the Albuquerque Police Department and the Albuquerque Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigations. Investigators with the Albuquerque Police Department are continuing their investigation in Joplin with the assistance of investigators with the Joplin Police Department.

Any specific questions about the 118th Street/West Mesa Homicide Investigation should be directed to the Albuquerque Police Department Public Information Officer Nadine Hamby at (505) 264-9653.

Anyone with information related to the 118th Street /West Mesa Homicide Case may call 1-877-SOLV-APD (1-877-765-8273) or Albuquerque Crime Stoppers at (505) 843-STOP.

Editor's note: While certain local media outlets and media wannabes have rushed to name a certain individual in Joplin as a "person of interest" in this case, it should be stressed that as such this person has not been charged with any crime. Because of this media frenzy to provide news first, a rumor mill has been fanned and people quick to judgment have identified this person as a "serial killer." This is most unfortunate.
