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.
Her body was found on March 26, 2003, in Dona Ana County.
She had black hair, brown eyes, weighed approximately 120 pounds and was about 5-feet-1-inch tall. She had a slender build.
Anyone with information about this woman is asked to call FBI Special Agent Diana Parker, 505-889-1300.
