Also get look at search warrant detail.
@yellowmoose I am so sorry for your lose. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Kenzie's family. This is heartbreaking. I have been so grateful of the information you have provided.
How about public executions? JMO
From the presser - they mentioned contact on June 16th between the killer - but are not elaborating anything further. Are the arrest warrants public in UT?
My heart goes out to everyone close to her and everyone involved in trying to help bring her home.
Glad she has been found, not sure why it took so long. LE had all the evidence they needed from her phone records. They should have been at that house days ago.
Sadly another innocent woman, killed at the hands of a creepy predator. I am not surprised at the outcome, but deeply saddened.
Sincere condolences to Kenzie's family and friends during this time. Devastating news.
Devastating. I hope Kenzie rests easy and knows just how loved she is.
Yes for aggravated murder I don't have a link to that. Will find and edit.
@yellowmoose, @tacostacostacos, @SoCalGirl and anybody else who has been affected by these terrible news. All my love to you, here if you need anything. Peace.
Anyone else getting “database” error here?

For clarification, an officer just told me there is no second person in custody now. A police spokesman said that earlier this morning. Just one man accused of murdering #MackenzieLueck.
He was in touch with her the day before she landed. This was stated at the presser. I believe that he did know her. He denied everything, but they found digital evidence to prove he was lying.
If I remember correctly, it was stated somewhere, that he had “severe allergies”. I also believe he had a “respiratory emergency” while Police had initially questioned him.
Worked less than 2 years for the Army. Resume is full of lies.
Warning signs everywhere.
Women coming and going from house..
It sounds like his burning wasn’t as effective as he expected so he buried what he couldn’t burn?
They didn't get her phone records right away. They had to get warrants and all that stuff, it took some time.
Super sad. I was impressed, however, with the dignity and solemnity of the LE officials present.
I had considered the possibility, but thought it unlikely due to the length of time/amount of heat required combined with the proximity to neighbors. I thought he might have taken her elsewhere but burned her belongings.
Edited to add: the only thing that had me wondering about the fire was the presence of the ME van.
So extremely sad. We live in a very broken world.
Leads me to believe this wasn't premeditated. Of course he could just be really stupid for someone who works in IT.
I don't think we'll hear the details of that for quite some time.
This is heartbreaking. So sorry for all who knew and loved Kenzie.
I'm sure LE are on top of it, but I hope they look into all of his online connections, AirBnB customers, etc to see if there are any links to other missing women.
Edited to complete last sentence.
Oh my God. He really did burn her. I thought that the bonfires were him burning her personal effects (suitcase, etc.) as burning plastic can have a really nasty smell. But no, he burned her too. /:
My deepest condolences to her family and friends. I have no words. I can only pray that they find some type of peace and comfort right now.
MacKenzie is just one year younger than me. She could have easily been a friend of mine. It hits a bit close to home being that she is in my same age group.
What she went through must have been terrifying; I hope it was quick. I also hope that this SCUM OF THE EARTH is shown no mercy in court & is prosecuted to the highest extent of the law.
May she Rest In Peace. To family and friends, I am so sorry. Please accept my deepest sympathy.
Fly High MacKenzie Lueck
P.S. Does Utah have the death penalty? If so, what is the likelihood this *** could receive it?
Yup. And a conviction is a foregone conclusion now.
Tremendous evidence against him.
They were at his house the day after they got her records.
Things moved very quickly once they had those in hand.
That's what I want to know, too. He's, seemingly educated, and works in IT... he had to know about digital footprints.
I'm always so impressed when a family member decides to speak at these announcements - I don't know how they do it.
KSL has just stated that the 2nd person initially taken into custody was ONLY taken in due to LE policy, as he was in the apartment with the perp at the time.
He has not been held, and KSL will no longer show his image on their station.
My condolences and prayers go out to @yellowmoose, Mackenzie's family and friends, sorority sisters and all who are affected by this tragedy.
Apparently, they arrested the second man at first because he was with the POI when he was arrested, but he was cleared & released. Only the POI is being charged with her murder.
Man charged with murder, kidnapping of missing Utah student Mackenzie Lueck
Ayoola Ajayi is charged with aggravated murder, aggravated kidnapping and other charges, authorities announced.
Salt Lake City police chief Mike Brown said he personally telephoned the young lady's parents in Southern California to tell them their daughter was dead.
“This is one of the most difficult phone calls I have ever made as both Greg and his wife Diana are devastated, are broken by this news," Brown said.
Man arrested on suspicion of murder, kidnapping in disappearance of MacKenzie Lueck
A man has been arrested and will face charges of murder, kidnapping and obstruction of justice in the death of missing University of Utah student MacKenzie Lueck.
Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown identified the man as Ayoola Ajayi.
Ajayi was arrested Friday morning after SWAT personnel responded to an apartment complex in Salt Lake City.
Police said during Friday’s press conference that forensic evidence collected at a home Ajayi owns revealed DNA belonging to Lueck.
Police said the man is accused of murdering the woman and burning her remains in his backyard in an attempt to hide the crime.
Also, I hope her peers (and family) utilize appropriate resources to heal after this tragedy.
Do charging documents/documents for search warrants get posted to media threads once they are made public?
My internet took a crap during the presser and I missed a lot.
Did they say if they knew each other? What a motive might be?
@yellowmoose, I am deeply sorry for your loss.
Sending you hugs from across the country!
Any one of us would consider ourselves to be lucky to have as dedicated and loving of a friend as you are to Kenzie. You and all of her friends define and represent how wonderful of a young woman Kenzie truly seemed to be.
While still new to Websleuths, I have been following a few cases whose end result made me cry tbh. However, the value of the website as a forum for those helping every single victim is why I keep coming back. Despite the sometimes horrible world we live in, I feel it is a true testament to the wonderful people there are in this world as well. Appreciation to all who have been an advocate for Kenzie and other victims here.
