Survivors of Homicide, New Mexico Gone, But Not Forgotten!Survivors of Homicide, New Mexico

New Logo designed by Blackspot Designs.

It is with great sorrow that we remember our victim advocate Judy Valles of Rio Rancho, who passed away on March 30, 2009.  Judy served tirelessly for all victims during her time with NMSOH and beyond.  Judy was also a survivor and, through her own grief, worked to help others in their time of need.

Our hearts go out to her family and friends.

Alert! Repeal the death penalty repeal in New Mexico.

NOTICE:  Currently NMSOH has no Federal Funding and the Board of Directors closed it down sometime this year.  I have no further information on the status of the group. 

I have been with this organization since 1995 and created this website in memory to my son.   There have been many brave men and women, whom I have met over the years, who have suffered a loss so great there are no words to describe the pain and injustices they have had to bear.  I hope that we can help them remember the victims.  

I still have contact information to many of the victims families and the police working on some cases.  The OMI is offering grief support groups...see the sidebar.

This web site will remain alive as long as I can continue to update it.  If you are a survivor of homicide and would like an unsolved case or a memorial page please contact me.

New Mexico Survivors of Homicide was a Not-For-Profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 1996. They provided support and information for survivors of homicide about the  grieving process,  the  criminal justice system and all other issues  pertaining to the survivors of a victim of murder.

The following information is provided as a service because we know the devastation that a loved one's murder causes.  We hope that the information may help, in some way, the painful process of  dealing with the horrific crime of murder against the innocent victims,  their family and friends.

Here is some of what you will find in each section of our site:

On our Memorial pages you will find the names of many victims who were murdered in New Mexico or whose loved ones live in New Mexico, with links to individual memorials.

On our Unsolved pages law enforcement and survivors are asking for your help! You will find links to cold cases and open investigations which need additional information to apprehend the murderers.

Learn about the effects of homicide by visiting our Grief section.

Our Reflections section contains poems, quotes and sentiments.

The Resources section is where you can find information about crime, the justice system, victim assistance and links to similar resources across the country.

Learn about our Organization.   Support group meeting places across the state, Newsletters, Board of Directors, Supporters, etc.

We want to hear from you.  Send us your suggestions and read what others have said on our Feedback pages.

NMSOH Murder Statistics


In 2004 the NM Office of the Medical Investigator decided to no longer supply NMSOH the next of kin of homicide victims and at this time are not even giving us the names of homicide victims.   We need you to notify us if you would like to be added to our mailing list or to add your loved one to our list of victim's names.  We are sorry for any pain this may cause families and are working to try to resolve this problem with the OMI or other agencies that may be able to assist us in locating the names of new victims and their next  of kin contact information.  We are trying to reach out to all survivors in the State of New Mexico and those of you who are NM residents and have had loved one murdered elsewhere.

Thanks for your patience,
