Salt Lake City Police Find Human Tissue With DNA Matching Missing Salt Lake City Woman, Murder Suspe
Salt Lake City, Utah police haven't found her body yet, but they do have human tissue matching MacKenzie Lueck's DNA.
MacKenzie's a University of Utah student, only twenty-three-years-old, who's been missing since June 20. That's the day her family filed a missing person report. MacKenzie, who's been very active on social media, hadn't posted anything since June 17.
The last time she was seen, MacKenzie took a Lyft from Salt Lake City's airport to a city park. There she got into another vehicle. Police now believe Ajayi was driving that car.
Following an intensive search of his Salt Lake City home a couple of days ago, police arrested Ayoola Ajayi, 31, on suspicion of aggravated murder, aggravated kidnapping, obstruction of justice and desecration of a body, Friday.
As of this writing, Ajayi had not appeared in court for a bail hearing, so he hadn't entered a plea to the charges.
Salt Lake City Police chief Mike Brown told reporters the arrest came following the discovery of a burned area that contained some of Mackenzie's charred personal items during Wednesday's search of Ajayi's home.
Also, Brown said amongst the ashes; they discovered human tissue that matches the girl's DNA.
She needed money. He wanted sex. Craigslist brought them together.
