Question: Thank you for your response. However it would be relatively easy to update the site: an individual at your local library could help,Geek Squad, local student, etc..
Putting a face to a name can really jog memories.
I personally think I have had contact with some of these individuals but cannot find pictures online.

Reply: The truth is, I'm too worn out to do what has to be done to find a way to post more photos.

And, while it might be interesting to people like you, I don't think it's necessary for the general public or for the media who visit this site. The FACTS of the case are there if people click on the links. The faces aren't all that important. As you've discovered, cops don't allow access to their photos unless they get careless and post them on Face Book. (They're reluctant to do that with good reason -- somebody they arrested might want to kill them. Can't blame them for not wanting their faces on line.)

Justice Dept. Investigation
Question: Is it true the U.S. Justice Department is going to instigate an investigation of the Albuquerque Police Department?

momentum! :)
Question: It seems like momentum is building with this case now/again. I just listened to yesterday's radio program. I'm so glad your case is getting a new/wider audience.

And I tried to help by posting a message about this case on Albuquerque's craigslist's local news forum, but the message was deleted because it related to murder. I tried. If I think of something else, I'll try it.

Best Wishes, and keep fighting the good fight, Arquette family!

Reply: You're right. The Internet Media is a force we never imagined back when Kait was killed. You post information on one message board, and it turns up on hundreds of others.

I hope those of you who read this post will send the URL of this Web site to everyone on your e-mail list. That you'll post about it on Facebook and on Twitter. If we keep the ball in motion it eventually will land in the right place.

[Sad in Spokane]
Question: What ever happened to the boyfriend Dung?\r\nI just finished this book today, I just started it today as well lol,\r\nSuch a sad sad story and I pray for answers for the family!

Asked on Thursday, September 08, 2011 at 06:22:32 PM
Reply: When my book, WHO KILLED MY DAUGHTER? was published, Dung left Albq. and went to the Northwest -- Washington state, Oregon, or some such place. A couple of years later, when the dust had settled, he returned to Albquerque, (can't imagine what brought him back there, since he doesn't have family there), bringing with him a new white girlfriend. People have told us she looks very much like Kait. That must be the type he is drawn to.

Reply: Since it's gone into syndication it keeps popping up at odd times. There we all are, 20 years younger--Detective Gallegos, reporter Mike Gallagher, and me. I wish I'd known then all the things we've since discovered. The show would have been much more interesting and pertinent.

Darren White
Question: is in big trouble now and he had to resign......

Asked on Wednesday, August 24, 2011 at 01:43:48 PM
Reply: We've been reading about that on-line.

Quoting an Associated Press article from over 10 yrs ago,"E-MAIL CRUSADERS WANT TEEN'S MURDER SOLVED": "It may seem like a strange plot twist -- mystery writers banding together in cyberspace to pressure New Mexico officials to solve the murder of a teenager." This went on to describe Kait's Web site, "which questions the police investigation, accusing officers of failing to question important witnesses. It also suggests a police cover up,”

Darren White, then State Department of Public Safety Secretary, responded,. "I have nothing but the utmost confidence in the homicide unit of the Albuquerque Police Department."

Question: When is someone going to do something....this city is going to hell!!!! And the people who are supposed to "protect" are driving the train!~

Asked on Saturday, August 20, 2011 at 05:16:12 PM
Reply: What I'd like to know is whatever happened in regard to the long-buried narcotics report that surfaced in 2004 and documented a DPS investigation to pinpoint participants in New Mexico’s multi-million dollar drug trafficking business. Bernalillo County Sheriff Darren White, who had been the DPS secretary at the time the report was issued, denied knowing anything about it.

However it turned out the report was, indeed, prepared by a DPS agent, who was assigned as the state's representative to an Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force, which included the DEA; FBI; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms; the U.S. Attorney's Office; the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department and the state Department of Public Safety. The document detailed drug smuggling and money laundering in New Mexico that spanned 20 years, along with a list of participants that – according to the privileged few who were allowed access to it – read like a “Who's Who” of the New Mexico drug underworld, with judges, lawyers, politicians, sports celebrities and prominent businessmen listed right alongside the state's narcotics kingpins. Some of those dated back to before Kait’s murder.

Governor Bill Richardson asked the state Judicial Standards Commission to initiate an investigation.

What happened to that investigation? We’ve never heard anything about that report again.

Dept. of Justice wants to investigate APD
Question: KOB-TV
updated 8/19/2011 1:17:20 AM ET 2011-08-19T05:17:20
Print Font: +-Officials from the Department of Justice met with families of those shot by Albuquerque police officers and Albuquerque's mayor and police chief. The DOJ is deciding whether to conduct a formal investigation into the recent rash of officer-involved shootings.

Since January of 2010, 19 people have been shot by APD officers and 13 of them died. In addition to meeting with the families, the officers met with Mayor Richard Berry, Police Chief Ray Schultz and community activists. The DOJ is expected to decide whether it should launch a civil rights probe into the deaths. Of the 13 men who were killed, most were young Hispanic men, some were unarmed and some were mentally ill.

On & on it goes. What is WRONG with APD?
Question: Officer arrested for bribe with escort
ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A 15-year-veteran of the Albuquerque Police Department was arrested for using his position to wipe a prostitute’s criminal history clean in exchange for sex. APD says it started investigating Officer Matthew Kindle, 44, after a former confidential informant told a detective from the VICE unit that she was still being contacted by Kindle about a criminal damage to property case at the Suburban Hotel near Menaul Blvd NE and Carlisle Blvd NE.

The detective says in the criminal complaint it was odd that an officer would contact a suspect several times over a misdemeanor crime. When the detective was informed that it was Officer Kindle, the detective remembered the name because of a 2008 case involving a prostitution case called “Private Ice.” Kindle was believed to be involved but there wasn’t enough evidence to link him to any crimes.

Mary Han case...
Question: You may already be aware of this case, but her family is planning to go after the APD for botching the investigation of her death. She wasn't a friend of the department, having served as a defense lawyer for many years. It was ruled suicide, but from what the article I'm going to link you to says, even I can tell this was a bogus call. Kinda like the drive by shooting of Kait.

I don't know that this will help you, but thought you should be aware of it.'s-death

Asked on Thursday, August 11, 2011 at 11:17:35 AM
Reply: Thanks for this interesting information. I was aware of Mary Han's death, and of course aware that she was a strong attorney who often tried cases against APD or challenged their fiindings, but I did not know that her family was charging APD for (malfeasance or misfeasance?). I will follow this on line.

Question: We don't know who you are, but we send our thanks to the person who placed the pink roses on Kait's grave on the anniversary of the shooting.

We do know who left the orange flowers, and we thank you also.

Pink and orange! a wild assortment of colors! Kait would have loved this -- they show both sides of her personality.

Kait's death
Question: wondering which day do you consider her date...cause she was chased on the Sunday night but it all fell apart on the Monday night, in which she hadn't made it.

Asked on Sunday, July 17, 2011 at 03:08:47 PM
Reply: It can be argued either way. The official date of her death, per her death certificate, is July 17, the date on which she was legally declared dead. If we'd kept her on life support an additional day, which we could have done, the death certificate would have said July 18. But she was brain dead, and the organ recipient had already been brought to the hospital by his parents. We decided that, since she had no chance of survival, he needed her heart and lungs more than she did.

Personally I consider her death date July 16, since that was the date on which she was taken from us.

Answered by: Kait
Makes you wonder
Question: I am wondering if Kait went to meet the person who killed her b/w the missing hours( of course she would have never known that hours later....) maybe she went to tell them that she would go to the police about the car scams or maybe went to meet someone for advice who would proceed in telling the killer about KAIT'S plans.
best of luck in your justice Lois and Don; remember people on this board want the best for your family and Kait.

Asked on Sunday, July 17, 2011 at 03:07:09 PM
Reply: Or it's possible she went to an authority figure to provide him with her information, and picked the wrong person. There's no way of knowing unless somebody tells us.

I know that the majority of you who visit this board are supportive of our efforts. We appreciate that more than you know. It's what keeps us going.

NOT a failure
Question: Lois,

Your post brought me to tears. You & Don did NOT fail Kait. APD and other authorites did. After her murder, if you had just said, "APD doesn't want information. OK." and left it at that, THAT would be failing.

You were on national television & radio shows, wrote a book about the case, and set up this website and the Real Crimes website. That doesn't sound like failing to me. Through the Real Crimes site, you have helped many loved ones of murder victims find justice for their cases.

Through WKMD? you have helped countless people - showing us that we need to be careful with our associations, who we choose as friends, and that none of us is invincible.

Many young people who didn't like to read found WKMD?, discovered the joy of reading and sought out more books written by you and other authors.

I'm pretty sure APD and some influential officials have played a big part in keeping Kait's murder unsolved. That is beyond your control.

You did - and are still doing - everything you can to keep Kait's name in the public eye. From the number of pages of posts, you're doing an excellent job.

Kait's death was not in vain.

Asked on Sunday, July 17, 2011 at 12:53:06 AM
Reply: Those are kind words to hear. Thank you. I'm sorry I vented. I'm back to normal now.

Occasionally this endless nightmare tends to overwhelm me, especially on Kait's birthdays and deathdays. One thing that most people don't realize is that the murder of one individual -- even a seemingly insignificant teenager -- has a devastating effect not only on the person whose life was taken, but on the lives of all the people who loved that person, and on all the people who love THOSE people. It's like a rock dropped into a pond. The rock may quickly sink to the bottom, but the ripple effect is endless.

Question: Tonight, Kait's dad and I sat, holding hands, over the candle we lit to bring light to her spirit. As we do every year at this time, we talked to her.

What I said was, "I'm sorry I've fallen down on you. On your 21st birthday, I stood at your grave with the manuscript of WHO KILLED MY DAUGHTER? in my hands and said, "This is your present, honey. Mother is going to find your killer."

APD has prevented me from doing that. And, Daddy and I have discovered that there's no way that a case can be solved if the law enforcement agency who controls the case doesn't want it solved.

For some reason, APD does not want Kait's case to be solved. After years of private investigation and much information from informants, we've come to realize that someone within the department was involved, if not in the murder, then in the cover-up.

This has created a cement wall of Blue Solidity against which we can only butt our heads over and over again unless somebody out there who knows and truly does care will give us the help we need to expose not just the killer but the reason for the cover-up. The latter may be more important than the former, if the killers were hired hitmen.

Kait, I failed you. I'm sorry.

We love you --

the missing videos
Question: Did you report the theft?

and who could have had a key to your home?

Asked on Sunday, July 10, 2011 at 02:55:50 PM
Reply: We didn't report the theft because at the time it took place we didn't know about it. During that traumatic period, the last thing on our minds was viewing videos.

We discovered the missing videos in 1992 when"Unsolved Mysteries" wanted to view one so they could cast the character of Kait in their re-enactment. We opened the box in which we'd placed all the videos that were in our home at the time we relocated, and all the ones with Kait on them were missing.

We know when the theft must have taken place. After receiving anonymous death threats, we spent a couple of months in a rented apartment with a security system before having our belongings packed up for storage and putting our family home on the market. During that interval, all our belongings were unguarded in a vacant house.

Kait had a key to our home on her key chain, along with all her other keys, including her car key. Anyone who had access to that bunch of keys could have reproduced the house key.

Question: Alejandro Marentes or Alex runs a photography business in Albuquerque, "buggs photography".

But he was also at the scene but not on record is that corrrect? Could he have been the officer the wedding party saw?

Asked on Sunday, July 03, 2011 at 10:43:17 PM
Reply: We have been told that he was at the scene but not part of the records of attending officers. We have not verified that.

As for your second question -- anything is possible.

Answered by: Kait's Mom
Alex Marentas
Question: The president of the Police Union who ordered officers to blanket the cops at Kait's scene was Alex Marentas. He was a field officer back then, so he could have been at the scene. Was he the boyfriend of Officer Mary Ann Wallace? If so that would explain a lot. Does anybody know if he was?

Asked on Sunday, July 03, 2011 at 02:59:40 PM
Reply: We were told so by the wife of a cop. (Of course, I won't reveal who she was.) But we have no varification of her information. Info from one other person would give us a second source so we could take this seriously

You're right. If true, it would explain a lot.

His personal web site, which he's now taken down, did state that he was a field officer at that time. But did not reveal his romantic past.
