FBI Needs Help Identifying Woman

FBI News:

The FBI and New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator are asking for the public’s help in identifying a homeless woman who was killed in a hit-and-run crash in Dona Ana County in 2003.

The black female suffered from schizophrenia and used several aliases, including Sonja Rebecka Ihu, Gretchen Saldingo, Gretchen Sundingo, Melanie Rumba, Melanda Votz and Tinkerbell Votz.

It is believed she spoke English as a second language and may have immigrated to the U.S. from Africa.

She spent some time in Flagstaff, Ariz., in July 2001, and also may have been to Canada and the Seattle area.

State requirements are expanding the duties of the clerk to the point where the move may be necessary to keep up with demand.

This issue is scheduled to go before County Council June 12. County Council Chair Sharon Stover’s term ends Dec. 31 and she is running for County Clerk.
