My thought exactly and you beat me to it! First thing that runs through your mind is that she met a male aquaintance there.

They need to work on the Vicki Lynn disappearance from 2004 also!

Some folks used to use the Holiday Inn parking lot as meeting or parking places for their carpools.

Schoolcraft is an idiot. He cant even solve the case of the dozens of home robberies that are happening.

That is what happens when you continue employing a detective who ran up 6 figures in payday loans to hide his addiction before filing bankruptcy.

I dont understand how he gets to be a dectective. The chief defends the people on the force as if they can do no wrong.Even when something is brought to his attention he turns a blind eye. There are numerous officers and detectives who have criminal pasts and are currently breaking the law. Yes I have complained to the city, and yes I could do a better job (for those who will ask)

This is a story requesting any information about this specific crime. It's not about Schoolcraft or the Chief.... Really? Do you guys not have anything better to do than to sit here putting down these men? They place their lives on the line every single day for our community. Everybody has their flaws. Schoolcraft must be doing something right or he would not still be there. It is sad that you guys are so focused on the department vs. focusing in on the real basis for this story. Thanks Alamo....

One more thing.... We are all human. Even if we are police officers, we still make human mistakes. I don't know what Schoolcraft has done in his personal life. But, on the streets, he does a wonderful job. He is the first one to get on his reports and get them to wherever they need to go. He is very dedicated to his job. If he is not solving these crimes, then maybe you should bring forward any information that you have so that he can investigate. These officers are not mind readers. They take the evidence of the crime, process it, compile any additional information given, and then move forward to find the culprit. If you think you can do better, please go and apply. Put your life to the side the way that our local officers do every day. Thanks....

how easy it is for some to sit back and judge others. just a thought, instead of whining and complaining why don't you solve some of the crimes since you could do so much better?? Or are you just running your mouth under an assumed name because you are coward? Seems the PROFESSIONALS at ADPS are doing a decent job to me. Funny how people comment about things without knowing the full story. Just who are your "numerous" officers you are speaking about? Your full of it along with the other criminals who badmouth ADPS.

When a detective is broke and needing money to keep his life afloat that is a factor. I don't give a damn about his personal growth or rehabilitation as it relates to the office. Payoffs shakedown and a bankruptcy proceeding that revealed just how planned the fraud was seem to be enough to disqualify such a person, but when you have a city that has not made a significant, say, drug bust in years except for Officer Ramsdale who got probation for selling it out of his police car, people can draw their own conclusions regarding the priorities of this department and the definition of a good job.

Is Officer Ramsdale the one who took cocaine from the evidence room and kept it for himself? I would think that every case that he ever had a part of needs to be reinvestigated.

What about that Sheriff that is on trial for selling his departments property on eBay? I wonder if he will get probation.

The thing you have to remember is that it does not matter what your employment is every employment has some sort of fringe benefits.

With the enforcement of the law one of your fringe benefits is you get to decide when and who the law applies to and it does not always apply to yourself.

It is the subject. The competence and integrity of the investigator. At the time of the filing of his bankruptcy $500 would have made the difference in everything in his world crashing down. The value of $500 is not the same to all people.

We saw some of this play out in the supposed vandalism at ZiaTrans last year that "closed them down". When it came out that a few days prior to the vandalism ZiaTrans was sued by its fuel supplier for nonpayment the "weeks" to attend to the repairs turned into 1 day and free rides for all. Goob here was out looking for youthful delinquents.

It matters.

subject is not about you playing lawyer, prosecuter, judge, jury, and executioner. It is about the family of this woman getting justice for her murder.
You sound like nothing more than a rambling lunatic.

Are you saying if I stole from you in my personal life but did my reports on time as an Alamogordo detective,that is good enough for our city.
