    I just watched your story for the first time tonight Lisa Sanchez -Lucero. My heart goes out to your family & I see that God heard your Prayers & put John Walsh on the case. It Pains me to hear that Michael died in such a senseless and horrible way. Let’s keep hope and faith alive that they find this Monster because Michael deserves to Rest in Peace

    I used to live in Abq, NM and I will not be going back anytime soon with all these unsolved crimes the cops are too buy killing innocent people instead of solving horrendous crimes like murder. I hope this man is caught SOON and they throw the book at him for evading police this long and throw everyone who has harbored this murderer and kept him going this whole time in jail. Thank You Unsolved for bring cases like this to light, I will tell all my friends and family about this site. Keep it going

    It’s just a matter of time before this coward is caught- but the more people that see this may lessen that time. Please share this. Michael is my cousin and Issac is right. He didn’t deserve to die this way. Please help bring justice and closure for my family.

    I think about u night and day. I miss u more then I can even express. It’s unbelievable and uncomprehendable that law enforcement has not been able to bring ur killer to justice. Much, too much time has passed and ur case is cold, but even thou law enforcement has given up, just know that ur family will never give up. I know u are not resting peacefully, because we are not at peace either, and we won’t have peace until u are resting in peace. So our mission has not changed, we will continue our manhunt in 2015. LORD, hear our prayers, help us seek the peace we need in our hearts and the peace we need for our loved one. Grant our MICHAEL S SANCHEZ the peace and justice that YOU feel he deserves. Please accept him into ur loving arms and heavenly home. He was a good person, with good intensions and a productive member to our society. He was trying to live right and do the right thing… And in the end, trying to do the right thing, is what got him killed. Forgive him of ALL his shortcomins and grant him eternal rest in peace and justice for him and his family… Amen.

    I love u and miss u so much, Mijo – Auntie/Momma

    Justice for Michael S Sanchez

    Please find this cold blooded murderer. Michael’s entire family has suffered long enough and justice needs to be served. Mikey did not deserve to die like this – he suffered an awful death at the hands of this animal. Please, Unsolved Mysteries help us find him and put him away for good.

    The brutality of this murder is chilling and senseless. The fact that he stabbed a human being in public so many times shows the violence in the soul of this murderer. It is frightening that he is still on the loose and if he loses his temper someone else may die a horrible death at the hands of this killer. Thank you for the help in getting the word out to try to bring this killer to justice

    I don’t understand how apd never got this guy, it’s a shame! Mike was one of my homies who I grew up with. I also worked with him as well. I just can’t say how much of a great person mike was. This guy needs to be caught, and justice desparetely needs to happen. Mike did not deserve this or his family, they are some of the best individuals I met in my life. I just pray that this guy is caught!!!

    This is such a senseless situation that was taken way overboard cuz of a dog….. I don’t know what all the details but what I do know it saddens me that a young man died tragically,,,, the murderer is a coward for not handling the situation like a reasonable an responsible human an then running away….. unfortunately Michael S Sanchez turned out in a sad a rising statistic that is happening more than a daily basis here in Albuquerque NM….. Sadly our cops r adding to the statistics plus most rnt doin their jobs an don’t care,,,, an it’s sad that the family of the victim has to take over the investigation an campaign to find this piece of shit….. They need help an maybe jus maybe if the family of Micheal succeed in their pursuit for justice it would help other victims an families have more hope faith an inspiration to do the same….. this tragedy is jus one case in thousands that have had no kind of justice with the police jus siting on their hands,,,, an probably would never see justice without help from outside exposure from shows like unsolved mysteries,,, America’s most wanted,,,, ect…. Albuquerque has a ton of unsolved mysteries to investigate,,,,, there’s tons of unsolved murders even down to the serial killers of NM…… But most definitely this tragedy needs to be exposed first due to the efforts,, campaigns,, daily post on Facebook an probably other apps as dedicated an focused as they r…. they have a simple plan is to catch this monster, ,,, I think we as humans need to come together an help……. someone out there knows where he is,,,, an this story plus others need national exposure repeatedly to be affective….. please let’s all help anyway we can to help ease the families pain,,,, it won’t bring Michael back but we can help get this monster in a cage where he Belongs !!!!!!

    I hope and pray this vicious killer gets caught and a mama, a brother, an uncle, cousin, and friend gets the justice they deserve! This family will not rest until this killer is caught! An innocent good man lost his life and a family will spend the rest of their lives without him at family gatherings, holidays, or even to hear his vice on a phone to say hello. Please keep airing this! Good bless everyone!!

    My heart goes out to this family. They need this guy behind bars. I pray that John Walsh catches this story and helps to publish this murder. It is disturbing to know that this killer is out there somewhere roaming free. He needs to be incarcerated and held accountable for the lives he destroyed. This young man was a hard working man who had a future. It was all ripped away because of a neighbor.

    Until something like this hits close to home, you don’t realize how a tragedy like this can destroy lives. Because of this senseless murder, my family has suffered tremendously and is broken. My nephew brutally lost his life at the hands of a psycho, because of an argument over a dog! Really? Thank you for the opportunity to bring this unsolved, senseless murder to national attention. Hopefully this monster will be captured and earthly justice will be served.

    I hope this murderer gets caught the more attention the better, this guy shouldn’t have out smarted the cops the day of crime and left seen of crime let alone been out and free this long. Someone, somewhere has had to have seen him or will see him and he will be caught. This is such a senseless crime and worse Michael was such a great young man he will be truly missed.
