    33-year-old cold case finally leads to two arrests

    http://www.abqjournal.com/804552/33y...o-arrests.html

    Late last week, Barter issued arrest warrants for two suspects in the 33-year-old case. Antoinette Palmer, 58, who also goes by the name Tina Madrid, was arrested in Mesa, Ariz., and booked into the Maricopa County Jail on two counts of murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

    And Martin Martinez, 70, who still lives in southern Archuleta County near where the bodies were found, was charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit murder.

    The bodies were found in the San Juan River in a rural area of Colorado and New Mexico, about a month apart. They were decomposing, and while some locals had seen the two victims, nobody seemed to know who they were.

    Two years ago, they were identified as Stewart Simmons, 20, and Margaret Walden, 39. Simmons was shot and Walden was strangled.

    I asked that Websleuths be credited, but the name didn't appear in the Pagosa Sun article. On the plus side, I guess I can blog about how many things had to go right with the info available online for the match to happen, in hopes that helps someone searching for a lost friend/loved one. Can forward email conversation with Detective Barter to a mod for verification, if they'd like. I'd just hoped this forum would get the credit.

    Unfortunately, it looks like she's already been released


    Woman accused of murder in 1982 cold case released from jail - By Nicole Perez - Wednesday, July 13th, 2016 at 5:02pm
    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A woman accused of murder in a 1982 cold case has been released from jail and won’t be extradited to Colorado where the bodies of a man and woman were found decades ago, according to authorities.

    Antoinette Palmer, 58, was arrested on a warrant for murder and conspiracy in Mesa, Ariz., on July 1.

    Alex Lowe, deputy district attorney for Archuleta County in southern Colorado, wouldn’t say why authorities decided not to extradite Palmer. He said the case against her is “technically” still open and prosecutors are reviewing it.

    Barter said Palmer was a suspect from the beginning, and blood and bullet casings were found in a bus she owned at the time of the murders. But the evidence laid out against her in the arrest warrant is mostly circumstantial, relying on interviews with people — including a confidential informant — who pointed to her as a suspect.
