The Murder of Amy Lynn Hanson


Amy Lynn Hanson was only 25 years-old when she was found murdered on November 30th, 2014. The young woman lived in New Mexico at the time of her death. She was last seen by her father at her family's home in Tohatchi. Amy left the family home on November 28th to visit friends for Thanksgiving. She never returned home and was never seen alive by her family members again.

There is very little information available about Amy's whereabouts and/or actions between November 28th and 30th. What is known is that Amy's sister spoke with Amy on the phone on November 29th - a day before her body was found. During their conversation, Amy's sister asked her if she wanted to go shopping. Amy declined, stating that she already had plans to go with her friends. What happened after that phone call ended remains a mystery to this day.

The following day, a father and son spotted a human body in an arroyo in Red Rock, New Mexico. Police were called, and the body was later identified as Amy Lynn Hanson. Her death was caused by blunt force trauma. Amy's manner of death was labeled as a homicide.

Very few details are available about the investigation into Amy's case. At some point around the time her body was found, her car was also found abandoned at a local tow yard. Other than that, police have remained tight-lipped about the investigation. No suspects or persons-of-interest have been publicly named. The identities of the friends Amy met for Thanksgiving have not been publicly revealed.

The FBI is involved in Amy's murder investigation. There is a monetary reward available for anyone with information that could help solve her case. If you have any information that could lead to Amy's killer, please submit a tip.
