ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque officials are considering a proposal that would fund a permanent memorial park at the site where the remains of 11 women and an unborn child were found seven years ago.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1Yo0woe ) that the City Council next week will consider a proposal to approve $350,000 to build a memorial to the victims of the so-called “West Mesa murders” on land donated by KB Home.

Albuquerque police discovered the remains of the 11 women in February 2009. Since then the police have named some suspects, but no one has ever been charged in the crime. The victims’ families have for years called on the city and KB Home to build a memorial on the site.

A final vote on the proposal is expected Monday.
