Wallace is a resident of Normal who lived about a block from Adeyooye's apartment, but investigators will still not confirm that he is even a suspect in the case. They'll only say he might be questioned when he is brought back to Illinois, but the car being found in Atlanta was the latest in a series of coincidences that appear to link him to the case.
Adeyooye disappeared on Oct. 13. On the 14th, police say Wallace stole $500 from his roommate. Those are the charges he was arrested for in Atlanta.
The fire that destroyed Adeyooye's body was on Oct. 17 in Lake, Miss. On Oct. 20, Wallace was arrested in Atlanta. Add to that, the victim's car was found there.
Those are enough clues to make Olamide's friends believe Wallace is responsible.
"And he was always a little weird and a little unstable," said Ashley Petry, Adeyooye's best friend, "and then he lived right next to her!"
