Details of Disappearance
Walden disappeared from Durango, Colorado sometime in June 1982. Her skeletal remains were found in Espanola, New Mexico, just on the Colorado border, on October 22, 1982. She had been murdered. Nearby, over the Colorado state line, were the remains of a then-unidentified young man who had been beaten and shot to death.
In February 2014, the man was identified as Stewart Simmons. Walden was identified in August 2014. Their deaths are still under investigation.
