BCSO asks for help solving recent suspicious death

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help solving a suspicious death.

According to deputies, 42-year-old Johnny Armijo was found dead in the yard of his home Sunday evening near Coors and Dennis Chavez.

Armijo was a guardrail superintendent for the Valley Fence Company. Deputies say he returned from a fencing job in Magdalena just before his death.

“We don’t believe that he brought anyone back with him, that he was by himself. That could be a significant point later,” said BCSO Homicide Sergeant John Allen.

Deputies are still waiting on cause of death. They ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 843-STOP.

Solving the Riddle of Suspicious Death

As elected coroners were replaced by medical examiners with scientific training, the American public became fascinated with their work. From the grisly investigations showcased on highly rated television shows like CSI to the bestselling mysteries that revolve around forensic science, medical examiners have never been so visible—or compelling. They, and they alone, solve the riddle of suspicious death and the existential questions that come with it. Why did someone die? Could it have been prevented? Should someone be held accountable? What are the implications of ruling a death a suicide, a homicide, or an accident? Can medical examiners unmask the perfect crime?

Postmortem: How Medical Examiners Explain Suspicious Deaths (Fieldwork Encounters and Discoveries) goes deep inside the world of medical examiners to uncover the intricate web of social, legal, and moral issues in which they operate.

How medical examiners speak to the living on behalf of the dead is Timmermans’ subject, revealed here in the day-to-day lives of the examiners themselves.
