At about 3:45 a.m. Aug. 1, 2021, Geraldine Toya was sleeping at her Jemez Pueblo home when she got the phone call any parent dreads.

Toya said an Albuquerque police officer told her that her daughter, Shawna Toya, 40, was dead.

Geraldine said Shawna was found unresponsive in a vehicle at an Albuquerque park the night before. APD tried to resuscitate her, but were unsuccessful. The news came only a few hours after mother and daughter had gone bowling with other family members at Main Event.
