    What age did I put? I swear...I'd forget to breathe if it weren't natural.
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    We spoke with a close friend of Lujan, who choose to remain anonymous. The person said many of Lujan's close friends do take her disappearance very seriously and said it was not in her character to voluntarily leave. They said they are concerned and worry for Lujan's children and hope for closure.

    At the time of his arrest for murder, Gonzales was being held in Midland County Detention Center for unrelated charges, according to city spokeswoman Sara Bustilloz. She said he was being held on a charge of violation of federal parole and a charge of credit card abuse.

    Updated info:

    Midland police said the body was found in a drainage ditch on the east side of Midland County.
    About a week after Lujan's disappearance, Gonzales took to Facebook to post about how hurt he was and said, "shame on you that are pointing fingers..."
    Police said Gonzales cooperated with them throughout the investigation, specifics about their relationship are unknown.

    "It's fairly common if it's a domestic issue. Sometimes we have had murders or situations where it was the suspect who reported them missing or reported the actual circumstances of the incident," said Bustilloz.

    During a search of the Gonzales's vehicle, officers did a chemical test for the presence of blood. The test came back positive and it was revealed to be Lujan’s blood.
    The affidavit goes on to say during the time of the investigation many co-workers came forward saying Lujan told them if anything happened to her, Gonzales did it and it would not be an accident.
    The investigation shows the morning of Lujan's disappearance, she confronted Gonzales about stolen money and forged checks. The document says Lujan then told Gonzales she was going to report him to the police.

    Financial records show Gonzales started withdrawing money from the ATM starting the last day Lujan was seen and continued until both of their accounts were empty.

    Midland man sentenced to life in prison for murdering his common-law wife

    http://www.newswest9.com/story/36160...ommon-law-wife

    Juan Gonzales, 45 will spend the rest of his life behind bars for murdering and hiding the body of his common-law wife, Kathy Lujan.
    http://www.mrt.com/news/crime/articl...r-11882200.php

    During the trial, the defendant testified to a different version of events and admitted to killing Lujan. Based on his testimony, the defendant requested that the jury consider whether or not he acted under the sudden heat of passion when he caused Lujan’s death.

    The jury determined that Gonzales did not kill Lujan in sudden heat of passion and assessed his punishment at life in prison and a fine of $10,000.
