Dead Chickens and Santeria at the Romero Cemetery

Black Chicken Meme…Isla in the cold… Garbage bags full of chicken parts… The black hen… Matt Staggs makes a life-long enemy…

The Albuquerque warehouse district is cold as hell at midnight.  And dark.  This little spot goes dead around 6 p.m. and refuses to drag its scraggly ass up until 5.  I’ve been sitting in the cold for two hours, cursing Matt Staggs and chain smoking.

A single tweet from Matt two week ago piqued my interest, beginning a chain reaction that ends with me on a wild chicken chase to find out who’s been leaving the corpses of black hens in a dusty family cemetery for two years.

A story that has been copypastaed ad nauseum around the internet for some reason, the last two weeks:

“KRQE-TV reports (http://goo.gl/XR9FZ8) that Michael Gabaldon, co-owner of Romero Cemetery, says for two years, dead chickens and chicken parts have been dropped off overnight.

He says the chickens have been left periodically from every day to every two weeks.  There also are bones or feathers scattered throughout the cemetery.

ROSWELL: Guns, Grays, and Greeting Cards

Little Green Mariachi…Isla gets a gray hair… “Probing in rear”… Postcard cowboys… Extraterrestrial buttocks… Alien beer… Black helicopters… Little green mariachis…

In July 1947, a flying saucer went skipping like a stone across the New Mexico desert.  “Most people think the ship crashed in Roswell, but it only hit the ground before bouncing up and landing in Corona,” says Pat Jennings, ex-military UFO enthusiast and “Mercenary Genius Extraordinaire.”

Our route into town was opposite of the flight path, my wife and I barreling through the New Mexico desert at 65 miles per hour down US-285 from Clines Corners, a hiccup of a town.

It was my birthday weekend, and when my wife asked what I wanted to do, I just pulled out the itinerary I’d prepared and pointed to a map of Roswell.

It was like Mecca to a UFO freak like me, and I’d wanted to see it for myself since I was a kid.
