The Valencia County Sheriff’s Office (VCSO) stated in a release that Karla Aguilera, 37, of Tome, was reported missing to their agency on September 6 around 11:24 p.m. Aguilera’s children, who were in Los Lunas during the report, told officials that she had gone missing. They said she originally lived in Tome with her husband, who is known as Rosalio Aguilera-Gamboa, 50, of Tome.
Investigators noted that Aguilera’s disappearance seemed suspicious, and county officials began to try and find both her and her husband.
On September 14, a dead person was discovered by the Torrance County Sheriff’s Office near the Mountainair and Highway 60 area. A presumptive report from the Office of the Medical Investigator believed the dead person was Karla Aguilera.
