Details of Disappearance

Jamie disappeared from Albuquerque, New Mexico on March 26, 2004. Her 25-year-old cousin, Evelyn JesusMaria Salazar, went missing with her. In November 2009, Salazar's body was identified. Her skeletal remains were found at a construction site in the West Mesa area of Albuquerque in February, along with the bodies of many other victims.

The final body to be identified was Jamie's; she was identified in January 2010, nearly a year after the remains were discovered. The others were Monica Candelaria, Victoria Chavez, Virginia Cloven, Syllannia Edwards, Cinnamon Elks, Doreen Marquez, Julie Nieto, Veronica Romero, Michelle Valdez, and Valdez's unborn baby. The West Mesa murders remain under investigation.
