Ghost Shadow: Albuquerque's Real Life Superhero

Apparently Albuquerque has a super hero and his name might be Ghost Shadow. Might be because he (and I’m assuming he is a he) didn’t want to tell the Alibi what his real superhero name is.

According the email interview, Ghost Shadow is 42 years old, wears a kevlar suit and sometimes a mask and has been doing it since 911.

I don’t keep up with the superhero scene here in town or elsewhere, but I haven’t seen any reports that attribute crime fighting to any of these guys. You would think that if a mysterious hero saved someone from crime that it would be on KOB.

Bomb Threats In Albuquerque

There’s been quite a few bomb threats around town lately.

  • 08/31/07 – I believe there have been several of these bank related bomb threats.

    Police are searching for a white male, about 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, who touched off the bomb scare shortly after 4 p.m. The suspect walked into a doctor’s office on Juan Tabo, strapped “suspicious devices” onto a doctor and the doctor’s assistant, then marched the two into the bank, Albuquerque police spokeswoman Trish Hoffman said.

  • 09/07/07 – Rio Rancho High School.

    Rio Rancho Department of Public Safety Spokesman John Francis said the bomb threat was called in to Rio Rancho’s 911 emergency line at about 7:40 a.m.

    A bomb threat called into the Sandia Peak tram closed business for about an hour on Saturday as authorities searched the restaurant located at the bottom of the mountain for explosives. After an investigation of the building, no explosives were found. However, authorities now have the phone number used to make the bomb threat because the Tram had caller ID.
