Search warrant: Girly named young son as sole benefactor in life insurance policy

Diazien’s divorce attorney attempted to adopt the child

October 2, 2000

(Albuquerque) A search warrant filed in District Court on September 26, 2000, provides new insight into the disappearance of Girly Chew Hossencofft.

The warrant states that by July of 1999, “Girly Hossencofft had a life insurance policy with (her young son) named as the beneficiary.” As reported earlier in The Horner Report, Felissa Garcia Kelley filed a Motion to Withdraw as Diazien Hossencofft’s divorce attorney in July of 1999. According to court documents, Ms. Kelley attempted to legally adopt Hossencofft’s son. It’s worth repeating: Girly named that child as her sole beneficiary in her life insurance policy.

According to the September 26, 2000, search warrant, police received a telephone call from Karen Vandiver on September 15, 1999. Vandiver explained that she was a lawyer who worked with Felissa Garcia Kelley. The warrant simply goes on to state, “On several occasions, Vandiver heard Hossencofft talking to Garcia-Kelley about his wife stating, “She will never live to see the money.”

When police executed their search warrant late last month at Felissa Garcia Kelley’s law office, they found several items of clothing believed to belong to Diazien Hossencofft.

The primary item of interest is a pair of shoes. Court documents state that the tread on those shoes appears to match the “distinct shoe tread type pattern” discovered on a gray tarp on September 10, 1999.

That tarp–found along Highway 60 a few miles west of Magdalena–contained Girly’s bloodstained green and white blouse, a pair of pink and orange shorts with blood, a pair of green panties with blood, a white cloth with blood, two pieces of duct tape with blood and hair, and a piece of gauze with blood.

Investigators recently confirmed that Diazien Hossencofft mailed his shoes to Ms. Kelley last year while he was in a federal prison in Atlanta, Georgia.

Hossencofft had recently been arrested in South Carolina. He was transported to Atlanta where he stayed for a few days before he was returned to New Mexico.
