The Metropolis of Albuquerque, Workforce Connection, is internet hosting a job truthful for early childhood schooling

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – The Albuquerque man who confessed to two high profile murders is also linked to a rape case long behind on rape equipment. Paul Apodaca was one of the first people in New Mexico to be ordered to register as a sex offender, so the city has had a copy of his DNA since 1995.

The rape, which Albuquerque police say Apodaca is linked to, happened in the early 1990s, but the rape kit went untested in the APD’s crime lab until last year. “It’s just that his match showed up as a match before we even arrested him or knew anything about it. I think in February … it came back as a hit, as a CODIS hit, they submitted it. Then, in the same Week that “he confessed … the sex crimes department learned it matched the same DNA,” said Gilbert Gallegos, a spokesman for APD.
