The June Issue of South Valley Ink
BernCo Sheriff Dan Houston Cold Case files
Many of the faces on the highly anticipated Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Cold Case deck of playing cards share similarities:
some are women who were murdered by gun shots, stabbing, blunt force trauma or by strangulation. Many of these women
led very normal lives.
To a casual observer looking through the Cold Case deck, they seem to be faces from many years past, but those
faces have names and families.
So, what happened to these women who were mothers, daughters, wives, or children?
That is what Sheriff Dan Houston wants to know, as he charges his revamped Cold Case Unit
to actively investigate the unresolved murders in the unincorporated areas of Bernalillo County.
Do you know anything about the murders of these women?

Our Editor's Book, Tiffany Blue
Our editor, Patricia McCraw, has written a book titled Tiffany Blue. It is about the early days of Tiffany's® and its connection to New Mexico and the turquoise mines. Here is what best-selling author Tony Hillerman had to say about Tiffany Blue:
"Anyone interested in New Mexico history, or history of the West in general, should not miss Pat McCraw's Tiffany Blue, a fascinating account of the very early days of turquoise mining. Much of it is told in the words of the immigrant Irishman who was one of the first in the game."
