Examiner's Office ruled this case as a homicide. Similar to Alisa
Beck's case, Mesa Police have analyzed every piece of

female victims had a history of drug abuse and prostitution.

The Mesa Police Department is asking anyone who may have
information on any of the two cases to please call Mesa Police
at 480-644-2211 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
